Red and processed meats:

Be careful of the amount of red meats you consume, especially if they look a little too red. As reported by the American Institute for Cancer Research and the World Cancer Research Fund, there is convincing evidence linking consumption of red and processed meat to elevated cancer risk. Every 48 grams of these processed products consumed per day bumps up the risk of colorectal cancer by 21 percent.

Some researchers suggest the connection may be due to nitrites, which are added to many luncheon meats, hams and hot dogs to maintain color and to prevent contamination with bacteria. Also, the production of processed meats involves smoke and/or salt, both of which increase the products’ exposure to potential cancer-causing agents.

Instead add your own “flavor” to your oatmeal like fruit, honey, nuts, raisins, real maple syrup, agave necter or cinnamon. Lastly, to save a few dollars buy it in bulk at Henry’s, WholeFoods, People’s or where ever they many have the bulk bins.

 

Honey Rootbeer May 26, 2009

I found a healthy soda that actually taste GREAT! I am super excited. I rarely ever drink any soda, but when I saw Honey Rootbeer I HAD to try it!

SO what is Honey Roobeer? You might have guessed, it is rootbeer made with honey. It taste like old fashion rootbeer! I still think water should be your first choice, but when you have an itch for a soda reach for a rootbeer made with honey. Unfortunately, I cant find any information online except it is put out my Dr. Tima and they are a privately owned company based in Los Angeles, CA and I have only found this product at People’s. If I seem to locate it somewhere else I will be sure to let you all know.

As for now, if you live in San Diego you better get to People’s and pick up some Honey Rootbeer!

Ingredients: purified sparkling water, honey,  oils of wintergreen, vanilla and sweet birch, anise, cloves, yucca plant extract and fruit juices. (all sugars are naturally occurring from honey.)

Almost too good to be true, but believe it, it is real, healthy and a great substitute for soda!

(please note: as anything you should drink it in moderation, it may be healthy alternative to soda, but too much can be unhealthy.)
