The Anatomy of Fear LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply By Linda WilliamsFor those striving to live a long and fruitful life, maintaining healthy habits and behaviors is essential to fulfilling your goal. Alongside engaging in physical activity, keeping a solid sleep schedule, and avoiding inhibiting substances, a key piece of health and wellness is a nutritious, balanced diet. You may not want to swap out that second cookie for a bowl of greens, but ultimately your body and mind will thank you. That said, the road to a nutrient-rich, wholesome diet requires detailed planning, especially if you’re looking for long-term results. One way to ensure you’re always locked and loaded in the health food department is by stocking your refrigerator with nutrient-rich staples. That way, you’ll have your favorite snack at the ready and can avoid last-minute scrambles to the grocery store. Before you head to the store with your list of essentials, consider splurging on a fridge equipped with ample space to accommodate your healthy lifestyle. High-quality models like these enable you to customize shelving to maximize space and will keep your food fresh longer. With your fridge availability in mind, read on for five tips for a perfectly stocked fridge.Storing fruits and vegetables While fresh fruits and vegetables are an excellent source of nutrients, they tend to perish quickly if not stored correctly. Thankfully, most refrigerators have designated drawers that help regulate humidity levels so your produce can stay fresh for longer. For foods that ripen quickly, like apples or avocados, set your drawer to a low-humidity setting, and for fast-wilting produce, like lettuce and herbs, increase humidity as needed. Keep protein on handWhen stocking your fridge for nutrient-rich meals, protein should be at the forefront. However, keeping protein fresh before you have time to whip up a meal can be challenging. Luckily, meats store well in the freezer and preserve for months. That said, thawing protein takes time, and sometimes you need quick and easy, which is why stocking up on eggs is a must for any health enthusiast. Eggs pair well with nearly any meal, are easy to prepare and are long-lasting in the refrigerator. Simply add a potato, vegetable, or slice of whole wheat bread, and you have a hearty, healthy meal. Dairy productsIt’s common practice to keep your milk in the door of your fridge, and although convenient, it may not be the best spot for dairy longevity. Instead, try keeping your dairy products near the back towards cool, dry spaces to keep cow’s milk, cheeses, and butter at peak quality. Additionally, check the product’s ‘best by’ date and keep an eye out for funky smells or odd coloration to determine its freshness.Carry a few drink optionsWhen it comes to eating a balanced diet, monitoring your water intake is critical. However, spicing up your drink options can keep meals interesting, and in some cases, act as a substitute for smaller meals and snacks. Make sure you stock up on meal replacement drinks, like smoothies and protein, shakes, natural juices for a sweet retreat, and a jug of fresh citrus water for added nutrients. Remember the snacksWhen building your grocery list, it’s easy to focus on your main meals and forget healthy snacks. Although it would be wise to avoid overly processed treats and sugary sweets, keeping quick fixes like overnight oats, pre-cut fruit, and string cheese on hand can tide you over between meals. Plus, they’re easy to grab on the go during busy mornings or mid-afternoon breaks. Simply place snacks in a bin towards the front of your fridge for easy access. Wrapping upWhen it comes to perfecting your weekly fridge restock, purchasing fresh produce, quick-prep proteins, and nutritious snack options are essential to maintain a healthy diet. Don’t be afraid to switch things up depending on which foods you gravitate towards most often.

Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood challenged Christian Benteke to fire himself back to form and throw the matchball in his doubters’ faces. The misfiring striker has scored just three times this season with Villa second bottom of the Barclays Premier League ahead of Saturday’s trip to Newcastle. Villa are the lowest scoring team in the top flight having hit just 13 goals in 26 games this season. Press Association Benteke has contributed just two of those and Sherwood threw down the gauntlet to the Belgium hitman ahead of their trip to the north-east. “I want to see him take the matchball with a hat-trick and throw it back in people’s faces,” he said. “Teams should be scared of him. They’ve got memories like me. I remember him terrorising defenders. We need to get him back to that. He’s only young. “We don’t want to try to patronise him, we want to try to tell him some home truths, ‘you were one of the best strikers in the country and everybody wanted you, Aston Villa didn’t want to sell you and now we need to get you back to that.’ It’s in there. It’s not a flash in the pan, it’s embedded into him. “He scores one in two. He’s a prolific goalscorer and we need to help him. The rest of the group need to help him – but we need to find goals from other areas as well.” Villa lost Sherwood’s first game 2-1 at home to Stoke last weekend, their sixth successive defeat, leaving them in the bottom three on goal difference. Sherwood insisted, though, he needs time to improve Villa after their season of struggle under ex-boss Paul Lambert. He said: “I dwell on it because I’m always mulling over the game, could we have done anything differently? “I beat myself up about it. If I put it into perspective, after a couple of days in training, I haven’t come in here with a magic wand. “No one expected that. It’s going to be difficult, it’s going to be a work in progress and the more time I have on the training field with the guys the more confidence I have we can turn this position around.”

Ohio lawmakers have passed legislation that puts on hold requirements that utilities gradually increase the amount of renewable sources in their energy mix. The measure, which the governor is likely to sign, gives a study commission two years to look into the issue.Backers of the bill objected to renewable portfolio standards requiring utilities to purchase 25% of their power from renewable sources (including nuclear) sources by 2025.Opponents said the portfolio standards would make electricity more expensive and argued that renewable sources of energy should compete on their own with fossil fuels.The bill doesn’t do away with renewable energy requirements altogether, only puts them on hold. According to a report posted at utilitydive.com, the renewable energy targets will resume in two years unless lawmakers come up with another approach.A San Francisco-based group called SCRECTrade, among others, opposed the bill and said the actual cost to Ohio ratepayers for the renewable portfolio standards would be less than $5 per household per year, SolarServer.com reported.The original law was passed in 2008.
