How many days a week do you lie in bed as your alarm goes off, thinking "Please just let me sleep for a few more minutes?"
There was a period in my life when that was me, seven mornings a week. That feeling would sometimes linger into my second cup of coffee, then return with a vengeance in the early afternoon. I can't tell you how good it feels to have those days behind me.
Sleep deprivation is common, with about 1 in 3 North American adults not getting the recommended seven hours (minimum) of sleep each night. When you're sleep deprived, you can't function at your best, and you may feel tired, have difficulty concentrating and remembering, struggle with emotions, and be at a greater risk for chronic diseases.
Can One Food Make A Difference For Weight Loss?
We often wonder if there is a magic bullet for weight loss. The short answer is no. However, research is discovering some fascinating pieces of information and one food that may help is kimchi.
Personally we like to buy our kimchi at Costco because it's around the corner and only cost about $10 for a typically large Costco sized container that lasts for several weeks. Now, kimchi is not a main course by any means, but is great as a side dish or on it's own. If it's a little out of your comfort zone, not to worry it's actually delicious and you can get as creative as you want with it. My husband eats it all the time and I've seen him put it on meat, in his eggs and even in tacos. Mind you he might not be the best example as I've also seen him eating mustard on tuna before, lol.
