Dear Lyn...

“Food synergy” is when you intentionally eat certain nutrients in combination to protect your body from disease and boost your health. In today’s Service For Life! ® Free consumer newsletter, you’ll read some examples of simple foods that work together – like salmon and garlic – to bring out the best in each other.

You’ll also learn about small things you can do to be a better friend, ways to cut down on your smartphone data usage (and save money!), – plus fun facts, a trivia challenge, and lots more.

You can mention my Free Consumer Report: “8 Secrets For Saving Thousands When Finding, Buying and Financing Your Next Home” with my phone number when sending them a Graduation Card or when talking to them at a Graduation Party - 602-739-0095.

Dynamic Duos: Combine Foods To Boost Your Health

Some foods, like ham and eggs, just go together, but did you know that if you intentionally combine certain nutrients, you can help protect your body from disease? Check out these examples of foods that work together to bring out the best in each other.
  • Yogurt + granola. Yogurt contains probiotics, and whole grains act as prebiotics. Eating both together helps your digestion.
  • Tomatoes + olive oil. The olive oil improves absorption of the tomato's lycopene, which helps lower risk of breast cancer and heart disease. Cook the tomatoes with the peel on, add some broccoli and you'll be a synergy superstar.
  • Salmon + garlic or turmeric. Garlic (which prevents the release of "bad cholesterol") or turmeric (which contains the antioxidant curcumin) are perfect pairings with salmon, which is high in omega-3 fatty acids. The result could lower your total cholesterol.
  • Kale + almonds. Vitamins K and E in kale need a source of fat to improve absorption. Add almonds, which are full of unsaturated fat.
  • Dark chocolate + unpeeled apples. Dip apple slices, which contain quercetin (an anti-inflammatory) in dark chocolate (whose cocoa is rich in antioxidants) to improve your cardiovascular health.
  • Beans + greens. Beans are a plant-based source of iron. Adding vitamin C in the form of dark greens will amp up iron absorption.
  • Green tea and (yes) black pepper. Green tea boosts metabolism

Foster Healthy Friendship

Good friendships are good for your health and happiness, but you need to nurture them. Here are three reminders of small things you can do to be a better friend.

Be there for your friends, in good times and bad. The most valuable thing you have to give is your time. Let friends know you care about and appreciate them. When was the last time you made a simple gesture, like a phone call or personal visit instead of an email or text?

If a friend needs to talk, it's your turn to listen. Give advice or offer your opinion, but only if your friend asks for it. Of course, keep your conversations private.

Keep it fresh and dynamic. Introduce your friends to other friends. One-on-one is wonderful, but adding new friends to your circle can bring different viewpoints, interests and personalities.

Cut Down Your Data Usage. . .

Do you pay overage charges for data usage on your smartphone's mobile plan? With the size of today's apps (some over 100MB), constant updates and the popularity of music/video streaming, you can burn through data before you know it. Try these tricks (look for "Settings" on both iOS and Android) to reduce your usage and lower your bill.
  • Know where you stand. Monitor your past data usage by going to your provider's web site or checking your paper bills. Look on your phone for the current month's usage.
  • Restrict streaming music or videos. Set your phone to download only when connected to Wi-Fi and restrict the music/video apps you use to "Wi-Fi only" settings.
  • Disable background app refresh. Find your phone's setting for this feature, and turn it off for all apps or choose specific apps. This will also extend battery life.
If these changes don't help, call your provider for tips and think about looking into another mobile plan.

Real Estate Q & A . . .

Q.  How do I find the right house for me?
A.   I recommend that you make a wish list of everything you would like to have in a new house. Then make a list of everything you don't like in your current home. These two lists will give you a good idea of where to start, and help you analyze your needs.

Buying a home requires making some compromises. You may not get everything you want, but make sure to get what you need. For example, when buying a home, the neighborhood should be your main consideration. Is the house in a neighborhood that you like and feel safe in? Will you have a reasonable commute to work? Does it have a good school system? (Not only is this important if you have children; it will impact the resale value of your home down the road.) Does the area have the amenities that you're looking for (parks, stores, and library) within a few miles?

Want to learn more? Ask for my Free Consumer Report called "8 Secrets For Saving Thousands When Buying." I'll send a copy right over to you.

Do you have a real estate question you want answered? Feel free to call me at 602-739-0095 or email me. Perhaps I'll feature it in my next issue!
