Esp. at Christmas, lechon, roasted pig, is quite popular here. Here's some health tip, if u care for this:

There are reasons that the meat of the pig becomes more saturated with toxins than many of its counterpart farm animals. The first reason has to do with the digestive system of a pig.
A pig digests whatever it eats rather quickly, in up to about four hours. On the other hand a cow takes a good twenty-four hours to digest what it’s eaten. During the digestive process, animals (including humans) get rid of excess toxins as well as other components of the food eaten that could be dangerous to health.
Since the pig’s digestive system operates rather basically, many of these toxins remain in their system to be stored in their more than adequate fatty tissues ready for our consumption.
Another issue with the pig is that it doesn’t have any sweat glands. Sweat glands are a tool the body uses to be rid of toxins. This leaves more toxins in the pig’s body.
I don’t have to tell you that when you consume pork meat, you too are getting all these toxins that weren’t eliminated from the pig. None of us need more toxins in our systems. In fact we should all be doing what we can to eliminate and cut down on toxin exposure. One vital way to do this is by choosing what you eat carefully...

we're not really 'chocolate' eaters, but have gone through bouts of had to have in the past -
one thing hubby always said to look for is that 'chocolate' must be the #1 ingredient listed on the
label as far as a 'real chocolate' goes, plus NO sugars added is a great-big-plus...
another words, 'if chocolate is not listed first', then it isn't really real chocolate...

A healthy habit is having healthy snacks. I am reminded of some we had as kids, not much now, but i should try to get more often.

Jicama or singkamas, peeled and sliced thinly, with a little salt, or plain. I see it can also be cut like french fries and eaten raw, altho others use it in cooked dishes as spring rolls, etc. Jicamas are said to have abt 35-40% vit. C per cup serving.

Slightly ripe (often still green outside but slightly orange inside) papayas. I remember being served cubed papayas that werent very ripe yet. They are still crunchy, as unripe green ones are, but slightly sweet. Sometimes served w/ some salt and/or vinegar=). Something like this:

Really unripe, white fruit also made into salads, a Lao original i think.

Actually, you pee most of it out, and it isn't necessary... so unless you have a large bladder you just end up running to the toilet

The recommendation is about 3 l pr day and included what you get from food :)
(More if it is very hot or you exercise of course)

Just make sure you also get minerals/salt, if you loose a lot of fluid (heat or exercise) and drink extreme amounts of water it can, believe it or not, "poison" you

The best water to drink, without a doubt, is ionized and alkalized water. You generally need a water "purifier" type of machine like the Athena for that. Not cheap, but over the long term it is, and can boost your health using this type of water. After that, distilled and a good mineral waters are all right, but still not nearly as beneficial as the first one I mentioned. Fiji water is decent. Do not use Poland Spring. Ever. One of the worst waters you can buy

Also, getting water from organic fruits and veggies is a great way to hydrate. Last, try using Mega Hydrate. it is available on Amazon. it hydrates at a cellular level and is very alkaline. And the Biocean company has a great type of "water."
Anyone one over around 40/45 should be ingesting treace minerals. Our bodies become depleted. It may be that minerals are more important then vitamins. Angstrom sells a good trace mineral formula.

Haha I second that with a few healthy habits:

1) Tell the people you care about how important they are to you
2) Be honest and show integrity even when it means it puts you in a negative light
3) Remove toxic people in your life and surround yourself with positive ones
4) Speak with authority all of Gods promises over our life
5) If you love someone tell them just that

The first thing that I start my day with is thanking GOD, for my current life and for another day to live in this beautiful world.
Then I drink 1 bottle of water.
I go for a swift walk to keep myself healthy and also to feel closer to the nature.
Then once I am back I try to eat healthy and organic fruits.
This is how I start my day.
Hope this helps.
:)
