#WheyProtein | As we age, muscle mass begins to decline at around 1 percent per year. This loss becomes a vicious cycle -- loss of muscle means lower metabolism, loss of coordination and balance and the list goes on. Fortunately, combining strength training with a little “magical” by-product of milk (whey protein isolate) can do wonders. Try adding it to a smoothie, mix in some blueberries, and you’ve got a winner! You can find whey protein powder in most supermarkets or health shops. #health

It may also lower the risk of type 2 diabetes and Parkinson's disease. #coffee #health

What Do My Dreams Mean? | Dream Decoder | “Dreams don’t happen to us, we happen to them,” says Edinburgh-based dream psychologist Ian Wallace, author of The Top 100 Dreams. In other words, we’re the director, star, and producer of all the movies that play inside our heads after we fall asleep (in fact, we create about five 15- to 40-minute dreams per night). But it’s not just for our own entertainment. #Dreams #Health

Avocados #Infographics | Linoleic acid and oleic acid are oils found in avocados, which will help reduce cholesterol. Avocados are a great supply of betasitosterol, and research has discovered that betasitosterol lowers LDL cholesterol. Avocados have each of the 9 essential amino acids, although not necessarily in the perfect ratios, making them a complete protein food. Substituting animal protein, often full of saturated fats, for vegetable protein will help lose weight. #food #health
