So if you go and watch the movie Food, Inc.  you would have a better understanding in why we have SO many food recalls and why E. coli is now being found in foods it shouldn’t be 🙂

Interesting  news video I found:

I don’t think sugar is really good for you at all, so I really stay away from it as much as possible. If you don’t know how much sugar you are eating pay attention to what you eat and read ALL your labels. Scale back one week at a time 🙂

I went and saw the movie Food, Inc. tonight and I highly recommend it. It is an eye opener to see where our food comes from. I thought the movie was fantastic and well put together!

It is about 90 minutes long and really worth the watch! When the movie was over people were clapping.

What I learned: Food shopping is more complicated then we think. When you buy certain products you support those companies. Best to by local and organic …

Now Go see the movie 🙂

Soy Products June 1, 2009

Soy products:
Soy can be good for you, but be careful how much you intake depending on your potential cancer risk. Soy contains isoflavones, several phytochemicals and plant-based estrogen, which have been linked to decreased risk of hormone-dependent cancers such as breast or endometrial cancer.

However, high doses of soy could actually elevate cancer risk for women at-risk for estrogen-responsive cancers, such as breast cancer. Women at-risk or who have breast cancer should consume only moderate amounts of soy foods as part of a healthy, plant-based diet. They should not ingest high levels of soy in their diet or take concentrated sources of soy, such as soy-containing pills, powders or supplements containing high amounts of isoflavones.

Consume modest amounts of soy foods as part of a healthy plant-based diet, either within your diet or as supplements.
