Go (Wal)nuts! 


A recent study about the effects of diet and exercise on sperm health found that a diet rich in antioxidants helps preserve sperm quality.  Men ages 21 to 35 who ate 2.5 ounces of walnuts daily for 12 weeks had improvements in sperm motility.  Men over age 44 who had higher intakes of vitamins C and E and the mineral zinc produced sperm with less DNA damage than men with lower intakes of these substances.
Not surprisingly, it was also confirmed that physically active men had better-formed and faster-swimming sperm than sedentary men.  And men who watched TV for more than 20 hours a week had lower sperm concentration than men who watched none.
Yet another reason to pay attention to what we're 
putting into our bodies and how we're treating 
ourselves on a regular basis!
Houseplants are Good for Your Health!



It is officially National Garden Month!
Consider treating yourself and your family to the gift of clean air in your home by getting a houseplant... or 2 or 3!
Whether you notice it or not, the presence of a plant has a positive effect on you, in great part because they actually clean the air you breath.  In addition to absorbing the carbon dioxide we exhale and giving us fresh air to breathe in return, plants are also extremely effective at removing environmental toxins from the atmosphere... And if that's not enough, houseplants also have a measurable effect on reducing stress... truly amazing when you really think about it!
Now, while I go contemplate turning my living room into a green house, feel free to check out all the useful tips and information at The National Gardening Association's website:

Herbed Zucchini Pancakes

Maybe you're already a pro-gardener and you have vegetables galore growing in your backyard... or maybe you're just starting a garden and aren't sure where to begin... either way, you should definitely check out 
The Cook's Garden at! 
I found this great recipe on the website along with many others, as well as lots of great gardening tips!
Zucchini's are a great addition to any vegetable garden! One cup of zucchini has 36 calories and 10% of the RDA of dietary fiber, which aids in digestion, prevents constipation, maintains low blood sugar and curbs overeating.  It's also known to lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure and since it's full of Vitamins C and A, 
it's an effective natural anti-inflammatory... Here's a delicious zucchini recipe to try!

INGREDIENTS (Makes 12 - 14 pancakes):
  • 4 medium zucchini squashes
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup of flour
  • 4 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon of basil
  • 1 tablespoon of chives
  • 1/8 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1 cup of cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil

Scrub & grate the zucchini and combine in a colander with the salt.  Let stand to draw out the juices, about 30 minutes.


Rinse well in cold water & squeeze out excess moisture.

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and add the zucchini, flour, melted butter, basil, chives & pepper.  Mix well & fold in the cheddar cheese.


Heat the olive oil over medium heat.  Drop the batter into a skillet, spread into 1/2" thick pancakes.  Cook, turning once, until the pancakes are golden brown on each side.
