Coconut & Macadamia Crusted Salmon

by Gilad

 

This delightful and oh-so-delicious dish is brimming with nutrients to heal and seal your gut. Salmon is high in omega-3 fatty acids to fight inflammation. Like all seafood, salmon also supplies zinc, which tends to be less well absorbed in people with digestive issues.


INGREDIENTS   serves 2

  • ½ cup macadamia nuts
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 egg
  • 2 salmon fillets, bones removed
  • 1 lemon
  • Green salad leaves, to serve
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
 

DIRECTIONS 

  1. Preheat oven to 360°F (180°C)
  2. Combine macadamia nuts, coconut and a little salt and pepper in a food processor to form a rustic crumbing mixture.
  3. Beat egg in a small shallow bowl.
  4. Dip salmon fillets in egg mixture before coating thoroughly with the crumbing mixture.
  5. Transfer crumbed fillets onto a lined or greased baking tray. Bake in oven for 15 minutes or until salmon is cooked to your preferred level of 'doneness'.
  6. Serve salmon with a side of green salad leaves, drizzle of olive oil and wedge of lemon.

Nature Provides Us With Everything We Need

By Gilad

All before the arrival of the human, the salt water was separated from the fresh water, dry land was made, gardens were planted with fruit bearing trees and animals and fish were made. The planet already had what we needed before we were created!

Nature provides us with everything we need and the less we interfere with it, the better it is for us! Check out these amazing 'Nature's Pharmacy' items that are available to us!

 A sliced carrot looks just like a human eye. You can see the pupil, the iris and even the radiating lines. And, YES, modern science has shown that the nutrients in carrots greatly contribute to the health of the eye..

Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.   

A walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere with upper and lower cerebellums.  Even the 'wrinkles' on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help in the formation of more than three (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.

Kidney beans actually help heal the kidney and maintain it's function. And yes! They look exactly like the human kidneys!

 

Celery and bok choy look like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium... If you don't have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak.  These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.

Conclusion? stick with natures abundant natural and unprocessed foods in order to get the best health benefits possible!

Motivation by Gilad

by Gilad

A body at rest tends to stay at rest and a body in motion tends to stay in motion unless something or someone acted upon by external forces. That is Newton's law of inertia and momentum. A rock stays motionless unless something or someone forces it from its resting position. When it comes to humans beings, the force that can move us comes from our minds that force is our motivation.

When I came up with the name Bodies in Motion for my exercise program, I was thinking about how we are all a part of the universe and that the universe is in motion. Look around you planets, stars and galaxies are all in motion and living things are in motion, too.

Understanding Fitness by Gilad

by Gilad

It seems that everyone wants to be fit and in good shape. The past two decades have seen people paying more and more attention to health and fitness. We have finally realized the overwhelming benefits that attention to our health provides. But, what does it mean to be fit?

Some people equate fitness with losing weight and being slim. But slim people can be unfit also. Other people equate fitness with lots of muscle. Some people think  fitness means being able to do 100 push-ups or run a marathon or compete in athletic events

What does it mean to be a fit person? It mans that you possess each of the five components of fitness: cardiovascular, muscular endurance, flexibility and low body fat.

I Don't Have Time To Workout

I hear this often! People say that they simply don't have the time to exercise.

It boils down to priorities. No matter how busy you are you can always find a few minutes for a short daily exercise regimen. Even 10 minutes a day for starters is better than nothing at all. Think of your workout as though it was your personal savings account. Put a little change into it every day and, before you know it, you will have a fist full of dollars!

To those who have only 10 minutes a day I designed a program just for you! 'Gilad's 15 Targeted Express Workouts!'

This 2 DVD set has short and effective cardio workouts and toning workouts for the entire body that are split into different days of the week. There are also stretching and range-of-motion exercises to keep you mobile.

Exercise for Intelligence

by Gilad

I'm happy to share with you that new research proves that regular exercise not only makes you healthier, it also may make you more intelligent!

In addition to causing the release of chemicals called endorphins, the so called "runner's high", it is now believed that regular exercise may contribute to the formation of new connections among nerve cells in the brain and even play a roll in the growth of new cells! 

So... Be Smart and Be Fit or Be Fit and Be Smart! It works both ways!
