End of Week Review 5/5/2017

I definitely got my 10,000+ steps in on my Fitbit last week! Helping to shuttle little ones around, walking tons around town and the airport, even getting in some good water aerobics a few times for my cardio. Picking up busy squiggly kiddos made for good strength training. More so, it was good for my heart in a different way. Even when I travel, exercise is waiting for me in a variety of ways. How do you find ways to get exercise in when you travel?

The city where I stayed isn't as celiac and allergy friendly when it comes to restaurants. Sad. There was a Chipotles and a Chili's, but I can only handle so much of the same food. Instead, I spent less money on healthy food at the grocery store. Do you have celiac or food allergies? How do you keep yourself from getting sick restaurant food? How do you stay healthy and save money when you travel?

May is Celiac Awareness Month. Interesting they are both in May. It is also interesting that many people with one have the other. VeryWell approached me about carrying their link to their blog post about celiac disease, which you will find in "Maybe That Belly Isn't Fat: Celiac Awareness Month" and on our Links page.

By the way, this post is late due to being body slammed by the fibro monster! This month is also Fibromyalgia Awareness Month. It's been cold and rainy since I got home. The barometric pressure difference between Colorado and here is tremendous. On top of that, there is a two hour time difference which tells my body I should still be asleep when it's time to get up. No wonder my poor body is all mixed up! This is life with fibromyalgia.  The blog post for fibromyalgia will appear later this month.

The devotional for the week is to help raise awareness to the damage of domestic abuse. Not only are the abused spouses victims, but so are the kids. If only more families lived out God's Word, this could be avoided. Check it out here "What's Your Worth?"

Healthy Carbs Packed with Protein

There are some great grains jam packed with protein! If you have celiac or just want to get more plant protein in your diet, check these out:

Grain
Protein Content
Quinoa
6.35 grams

 Amaranth
6.10 grams

Rolled Oats
5.92 grams

Wild Rice
6.63 grams

Buckwheat
5.96 grams

Brown Rice
  3.38 grams

Sorghum 
5.09 grams


Be careful, though. Some people with celiac can't eat oats because the protein structure is too similar to gluten. Also, it may be important to rotate your foods in order to avoid allergies and sensitivities due to plant protein content. Consuming more plant protein is associated with healthy body weight. Enjoy!

Does the weather have you curled up in pain? Try PraiseMoves, the Christian Alternative to Yoga. Postures like Kuf, Little Child, Scroll, and Prayer Shawl reduce back pain.
