Sheet Pan Vegetable Hash with Eggs Rating:
Flipping the script on what a hash is supposed to look like, this one-pan-wonder swaps potato for finely chopped cauliflower and broccoli, making this simple plant-based bake as nutritious as it is delicious.
Total: 55 mins
• 1 small head cauliflower, trimmed, cored, and cut into florets
• 1 pound broccoli, trimmed, stem peeled, and cut into 1 inch pieces (greens and stems)
• 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
•1/2 red onion, diced (1 cup)
• 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
• Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
• 2 packed cups baby spinach
• 6 large eggs, room temperature
• Step 1 Preheat oven to 425°F. Pulse cauliflower in a food processor until finely chopped (you should have about 4 cups). Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. Repeat with broccoli and transfer to baking sheet. Add bell pepper and red onion and drizzle with olive oil; toss until well combined. Season with salt and pepper; spread in an even layer and roast, stirring once, until golden around edges, 25 to 30 minutes.

There is a link between the motivation to do things and chronic low-grade inflammation!
The journal Trends in Cognitive Sciences Researchers from Emory University published that "inflammatory cytokines signal immunometabolic shifts," which directly impact mesolimbic dopamine (DA). The mesolimbic pathway, also referred to as the "reward pathway”, is implicated in the willingness to put in effort or seek reward. These findings could impact the way we look at behavioral challenges - for which a causative factor may be inflammation. email@example.com
Dr Gundry’s Plant Paradox book explains causes of inflammation caused by lectins. The book provides a list of foods to eat that decrease the exposure to lectins. As a cardiologist he had many patients heading for heart surgery that used this diet to prevent having to have the heart surgery. At this point people with other diseases have brought their inflammation down causing a direct effect on decreasing symptoms of their illness.

The Winter Blues
Many people feel lethargic, fatigued, and moody during the cold, winter months. Some write off these signs and behaviors as just feeling down. Since many don’t believe they need to do anything about it, they don’t take proper care of themselves.
As the weather changes, and your normal routine is thrown out of whack by the time change, your brain’s serotonin activity can decrease. As the brain neurotransmitter that plays a major role in outlook, the lowering of serotonin activity often is linked to low mood. Also, since serotonin is the starting molecule for the brain’s pineal gland to produce melatonin, our main sleep hormone, changes in serotonin activity can rob us of quality sleep.
Though falling back gives us an extra hour of sleep, the tradeoff is that the darker months can negatively affect our mood and sleep patterns. With less sunlight, it becomes increasingly important to get adequate levels of vitamin D during the winter months.
Increase Your Vitamin D During the Winter
Vitamin D, also referred to as the “sunshine vitamin,” is now known to be crucial for the brain’s functioning and maintenance. After it’s made in the skin as vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), it becomes converted, first by the liver then by the kidneys, into a powerful hormone that regulates not only the brain but the heart, circulation, gut, liver, pancreas, immune system, and practically all our tissues. Among its many benefits, vitamin D3 promotes the actions of serotonin, dopamine, and other key brain neurotransmitters.
Unfortunately, many Americans – even those who eat a good diet – are functionally vitamin D deficient. Though definitions of vitamin D deficiency can vary, experts agree that it has nearly reached epidemic status: one research study found that in the U.S., 70% of all adults and 67% of children, aged 1-11, don’t have adequate levels of vitamin D.
Vitamin D deficiency has been associated with illness in winter, when the skin gets less sunshine and makes less vitamin D. In fact, there is research linking vitamin D deficiency to over 200 health concerns. Among these is that low levels of vitamin D have been associated with mood challenges and difficulties with sociability, attention, memory, stress and anxiousness.
If you’re concerned that you or a family member aren’t getting enough vitamin D, you should consider supplementation.
Vitamin D3 5000 IU
BrainMD’s Vitamin D3 5000 provides sufficient vitamin D3 to raise your tissue levels into a healthy range within a short time period, while being completely safe to take long-term. Clinical research has established that taking this safe dose of vitamin D3 daily works better than taking high doses every few weeks or getting a very high dose by injection.
Intensive clinical and scientific research continues to make incredible discoveries about this vitamin – hormone. Vitamin D3 is clearly established as having powerful and extremely versatile effects on health and well-being. In the past two decades, researchers have confirmed its favorable effects on healthy gene regulation, calcium metabolism, cell growth control, hormone balance, and coping with stressful challenges. Vitamin D3 promotes:
• healthy mood
• immune response
• cognitive function
• cardiovascular health
• muscle and bone strength
• overall brain health
The current U.S. Daily Value recommendation is 400 IU, but experts agree this is well below the physiological needs of most individuals and suggest 2,000-10,000 IU daily. BrainMD’s Vitamin D3 5000 raises your levels on just one softgel a day.
If you typically have a hard time adjusting to the DST time switch, vitamin D3 can help you get into a new rhythm and beat the time change blues!

The Many Benefits of Vitamin C*
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that is found in many fruits and vegetables. High doses of vitamin C can help improve immune function, cardiovascular wellness and overall health. Vitamin C also plays a role in promoting the synthesis of collagen, which is vital for healthy skin and blood vessels.* Unlike plants and most animals, humans are unable to manufacture vitamin C within the body and therefore must obtain it from dietary sources. This fact is the reason that many researchers, including the renowned Nobel Prize-winning chemist Linus Pauling, suggest that many of us humans would enjoy better health if we supplemented our diets with amounts of vitamin C proportional to the amounts produced by animals that have the ability to manufacture their own vitamin C. That means high doses of vitamin C that far exceed the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA). The current RDA is set at 90 mg/day for men and 75 mg/day for women which many experts believe is woefully inadequate. In addition, it's important to note that levels of vitamin C within the body also decline with aging, which can make supplementation increasingly important.*

Caffeine Does WHAT To Your Brain??
Although caffeine can lead to temporary increased alertness, excessive consumption does more harm than good. It constricts blood flow to your brain, slows nerve cell activity, puts you in “fight or flight” mode, and that’s just the beginning.
Long-term Addictive Use of Caffeine: Bad for Your Brain?
Excessive caffeine use is associated with chronic dehydration (which can harm your body in numerous ways), added stress on your heart, high blood pressure, jitteriness and headaches, says Daniel Amen, M.D.
Truth is, depending on your own body chemistry, when the effects of the caffeine wear off, you can actually feel fatigued and depressed. So, you consume more caffeine to re-energize. Soon enough, you are hooked on the stuff – and it takes more and more to achieve that same feeling.
After years of studying brain scans at Amen Clinics, it is clear that reduced cerebral blood flow is the opposite of what you want for optimal brain function, says Dr. Amen. “In fact, decreased cerebral blood flow lowers cognitive function and can exacerbate emotional and mental health problems.”

In a study, a team of researchers from China and the United Kingdom determined that eating an egg a day could actually reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, BMJ reports. Researchers analyzed over 400,000 individuals in China, aged between 30 and 79 years old, and located in various geographical areas. The findings were published in the journal, Heart, and led by Professor Liming Li and Dr. Canqing Yu of the School of Public Health, Peking University Health Science Center.
According to BMJ, the results indicated that those who consumed eggs daily (which the publication notes was estimated to around 5.32 eggs/week), compared to those individuals who rarely consumed eggs, had a lower risk of cardiovascular disease. Not only that, but they were also 26 percent less likely to suffer from a hemorrhagic stroke.
There is something to remember about a Chinese diet and a WESTERNERS TRADITIONAL BREAKFAST and that is; eating an egg with vegetables and rice and fish soup is better than a Western style breakfast of refined white toast, processed meat and sugar laden ketchup. With the right combination of nutrition eggs can be a beneficial addition to reduce the risk of heart disease.
