  • Zucchini Fritters

    Zucchini fritters with fresh parsley and sour cream in plate on blue concrete background. Selective focus.

    (Gluten-Free, Low-Carb, Keto)

    1 1/2 pounds zuccini (about 2-3 med to large)

    1 Shallot, finely diced

    2 Eggs, beaten

    1/2 cup almond flour

    1/4 cup goat cheese

    Salt and pepper to taste

    2 tablespoons of olive oil for frying

    Garlic, Chive Yogurt Sauce

    1 Cup Yogurt

    2 Garlic Cloves, minced

    1tbsp chives, finely chopped

    1/2 tsp salt

    1/4 tsp pepper

    Grate the zucchini and put into a bowl. Sprinkle with salt, stir together and let stand for 20 minutes. The salt will work to draw the moisture out of the zucchini.

    Squeeze out the liquid from the zucchini, with either a nut milk bag or cheesecloth, then return to a clean bowl. Add the shallot, eggs, goat cheese, almond flour, salt and pepper. Then stir to combine.

    Heat the oil in a large pan  over medium heat. Using either your hands or a spoon, dollop our mounds (approximately 1/4 cup worth) of the mixture into the hot pan. Using a spatula push down each fritter to flatten.

    Cook the fritters 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they're lightly golden. Remove the fritters from the pan and place them on a paper towel to dab away any extra oil. Mix up the sauce ingredients. Serve the fritters with a dollop of the sauce, then enjoy!

  • Food For Thought Improving Your Mental Health

     

    By Karen Masterson Koch, CN, President of Aloe Life

    People take their brain health for granted until a major behavior or thinking issue arises at work, school
    or play. The brain controls every thought, mood and movement, including all growth and development
    from infancy through every stage of life. The brain must function properly to support healthier thoughts
    and actions, and that starts with whole foods.
    Several studies over the years have shown that eating healthy foods rewards children with longer
    attention spans, better cognition and higher test scores.
    Adversely, bad behaviors are linked to allergies that are triggered by too much inflammatory or junk
    food consumption; high salt, sugar and trans-fat diets. A nutritionally unbalanced diet can cause a
    myriad of mental and behavioral issues. Cane sugar consumption alone has steadily risen over the years
    at approximately 200 pounds per person, yearly. This parallels the rise of all diseases, including mental
    illness.
    The U.S. has a growing population with many types of mental and behavioral challenges, but only 1 in 4
    adults and 1 in 6 teens and younger children receive treatment. Sadly, suicides from chronic depression
    are up 25% from the past 20 years, rising above fatal traffic accident statistics.(1) Additionally, 1 in 7
    children ages 2 – 8 have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and slow development from
    Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).(2)
    Cognitive Function and Behavior
    We tend to blame age or personality for under-performance, whether in a child or an adult, but it’s the
    right combination of nutrients that supports optimal mind and body function. I recall a young cashier
    who repeatedly forgot how to run the cash register. When asked if he ate breakfast, he responded, “I
    never do!” This is a prime example of the effects of nutrient deficiency.
    If you think of yourself or others as a “slow learner,” or experience confusion, depression or have health
    or behavior problems, start by thinking about what was eaten that day for nourishment. Sometimes it is
    not just what you eat, but what you don’t eat or digest properly, that robs the brain of wellness and
    performance. (3)
    Some excellent news for all people, including underachievers, special needs individuals and folks
    wanting to take more preventative measures with their health, is that nourishing foods and key
    supplements can help improve your mental health – just give it at least 45 days to test drive healthier
    choices!
    7 Key Brain Health Factors (4)
    Daily Nutrition and Digestion – Eat a variety of quality proteins, vegetables, fruits. Avoid inflammatory

    foods, such as sugars and starches, and shop organic as much as possible. Always read the labels!
    Hydration – Body size matters! Approximately 1 ounce of water per pound of body weight, plus critical
    electrolytes, is required from foods and beverages. The average adult needs 2 – 3 quarts of water daily.
    Exercise – Challenging the brain and body with daily movement and thinking exercises for 30 – 45
    minutes a day can be beneficial for stress reduction and mood improvement.
    Limit Allergens and Junk Foods – Some of the most common inflammatory offenders are cane sugar,
    cow’s milk, gluten, oats, whole grains and grain fibers, molds (on foods including nuts), ice cream, pizza,
    gelatin capsules, trans-fats and food high in vegetable oils, such as fried foods and margarine.
    Brain Supplements –
    • Whole Leaf Aloe Vera concentrate
    • Essential fatty acids (omegas 3, 6, 9, as well as DHA and EPA)
    • Daily greens supplements (avoid if taking blood thinners)
    • B-Complex with B12
    • COQ-10 enzyme
    • Amino acids
    • Vitamin E, C and A, plus minerals like zinc and magnesium
    • Trace minerals
    Daily Detox and Cleansing – Raw celery, carrots, apples and beets support regularity. Popular
    detoxification supplements include fiber, pre- and probiotics, liquid silver, and concentrated greens.
    Avoid Toxins and Environmental Poisons – Lead, mercury, synthetic fragrances, non-stick pans (Teflon),
    and herbicides/pesticides all include common carcinogens and nerve poisons that negatively affect
    healthy brain function.

  • Using Aloe Vera to up your KETO Game

    So many people are experiencing dramatic WEIGHTLOSS through the power of KETO eating! So just what is KETO  you might ask? It is a way of eating that causes your body to go into a state of Ketosis quicker than traditional dieting by reducing your carbohydrate intake to 20 grams or less a day. The diet consists of the food groups in these ratios 70% fat, 25% protein and 5% carbohydrates. This diet can also be Gluten Free!

    Why is Aloe Vera Juice helpful for a person doing a KETO Diet? Aloe Keto FriendlyVera Juice Concentrate by Aloe Life is the #1 choice for increasing digestion of foods to include fats and proteins. As you can see above the KETO Diet has a high concentration of fats at 70% and 25% protein. Aloe Vera Juice is also great at increasing energy because of its abundance of trace minerals and vitamins!

    Aloe Gold Juice Concentrate by Aloe Life has very low carbs at 1 gram per 1oz and also available in tablets.

    Daily Greens supports energy and detox while dieting and is nutrient dense plus gluten free dark green vegetables, 2 grams per 1 1/2 tsp or 6 Tablets.

    Fibermate Tablets are wonderful to support daily regularity because constipation may be experienced during the Keto diet. It only has 1 carb per 3 tablets!

    We encourage you to choose healthy foods when planning your meals including as many fresh vegetables and fruits as allowable (only low carb ones)! My family has found a great help in using a food scale and a chart of the nutrition content in the foods to make sure you are staying within the daily guidelines for success!

    Exercise of all types for approximately 30-45 min per day is important for reaching your health goals!  The stress relief and cardio affects are amazing and noticeable. A great website to check out is https://www.runtastic.com/. They also have great u tube videos on the Runtastic channel of workouts to follow for abs, legs, etc. from 5-30 min long!!
