Today’s Healthy Dose – Beta Glue Cans

Sorry, no glue cans here. We’re talking beta-glucans: a type of fiber found in baker’s yeast, mushrooms and many whole grains, like oats. Beta-glucans help to regulate the immune system and stimulate white blood cell production, playing a powerful role in your body’s protection against illnesses including cancer and infections.

No wonder you’ve been craving organic oatmeal cookies!

 

 

Today’s Healthy Dose – Sweet Stevia

What is it?  Stevia Rebaudiana is a plant native to Paraguay. The plant’s leaves, when dried, are so sweet that one teaspoon has as much sugary satisfaction as a full cup of sugar. Pure Stevia has no calories, does not cause blood sugar spikes, has been used for centuries as a medicinal herb, and for the last 30 years as a popular food additive in Japan.

There are no known side affects to pure Stevia, but read your labels…much of what is being sold in US markets is not 100% Stevia. (like anything in a packet)

Go for pure Stevia powder or liquid and drop sparingly, as using too much Stevia can cause a bitter after taste.
