Adding healthy and nutrient rich foods to your daily diet and staying active is a great way to stay fit and feel good. Come and explore the many ways to healthy living.
Living a healthy lifestyle can be a challenge when you are faced with a lack of time and too many “quick and easy” options for processed and fast food. Our busy schedules also tend to lead to poor exercise choices. There are significant benefits to improving the way in which you live so you can have a healthier and longer life.
Energy Levels and Mental Health
Changing lifestyle choices and eating healthy food are about having more energy and staying as healthy as possible. Eating healthy can boost your energy levels and allow you to participate in more activities on a daily basis. Your mental health also depends upon your healthy lifestyle choices. Eating well and exercising can help defend against depression and will sharpen your memory and stabilize your mood.
Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle. Combined with physical activity, your diet can help you to reach and maintain a healthy weight, reduce your risk of chronic diseases and promote your overall health. Incorporate rich plant based foods in your diet, such as Seapoint Farms Edamame (which contains all the essential amino acids and is a great source of protein) and Seapoint Farms Seaweed snacks, both of which are nutrient and vitamin rich. Soy protein may also possess some efficacy in controlling body weight and reducing high blood sugar in diabetics making weight loss and maintaining a healthy weight much easier.
Heart Healthy Lifestyle
What is a Heart Healthy Lifestyle?
Health problems such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol are usually a wake-up call that it’s time to make major lifestyle changes. You can be proactive and make a few simple changes to avoid such a diagnosis in the first place.
Make positive changes one step at a time such as healthy eating habits, exercise, eliminate smoking, losing those extra pounds, getting enough sleep. These can all make a difference in your overall health. It helps to remember that an unhealthy habit gives instant gratification but you will always pay for it later. It’s easier and more effective long term to make small incremental positive changes in your lifestyle so you don’t feel overwhelmed and defeated. Making changes before you develop a chronic condition such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol is critical.
Taking action to keeping a Heart Healthy Lifestyle is important because heart disease is the No. 1 killer in the U.S.
What is Non-GMO? Seapoint Farms is a proud supporter of Non-GMO Foods
Non-GMO means non-genetically modified. GMOs (genetically modified organisms), is the engineering of food plants in the hopes that the plant will express the traits associated with these new genes. Genetic modification/engineering is a potentially dangerous technology in that the process of inserting genes into the DNA of a food plant is random; scientists have no idea where the genes go. This can disrupt the functioning of other genes and create novel proteins that have never been in the food supply and could create toxins and allergens in foods. There is a clear distinction between traditional breeding of crops, which we support, and the new technology of genetic engineering, which crosses species that could never be crossed in nature.
Since the inception of Seapoint Farms, in 1996, we became aware of the concern with GMO’s, and have had a strict policy to only produce Non-GMO products.
We require all of our suppliers to test every crop that is grown for Seapoint Farms. In addition, we rely on testing and other procedures to assure the ingredients are not contaminated with GMOs. We believe consumers have the right to know if they are eating GMOs. We have a dedicated staff at Seapoint Farms that work closely with The Non-GMO Project to keep abreast of GMO labeling issues and add our support to grassroots efforts.
