Today’s Healthy Dose – A.K.A. Sugar

Did you know that there are over sixty covert aliases for processed sugary invaders on our food labels? Sixty!

But we have the power to look past ingredient deception to the the carbohydrate section of the label where it says “sugar”.  Be very wary of anything over 10 grams….

(or better yet, only eat foods that don’t come with a label)


Today’s Healthy Dose – Healthy Bees, Healthy Food

Honey bees are responsible for 80% of all pollination, and they ensure we get to enjoy some of our most nutritious foods.  But they are just as afraid of us, as we are of them, so don’t swat, give them something to do instead. Long season or year round flowering plants that are native to your region will keep them hard at work and healthy too.

Time to plant some flowers?

Today’s Healthy Dose – Poor Poultry

Many chickens are crowded together, sitting in their own feces, spreading salmonella and other diseases, feeding on antibiotic and pesticide laced genetically modified corn and soy, depleted of essential vitamins and minerals, with no outdoor access, and no light. Then they’re injected with a yummy salt and preservative cocktail to “boost” flavor during processing.

Remember the saying you are what you eat?  When it comes to chicken, buy organic.

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!
