10 Simple Rules For Eating Well

There are a few simple rules which will help you to eat safely.

Quite simply put; avoid food in packages and if packaged allow for only 5 ingredients.

And READ labels.

This is probably the best advice anyone can give.

Avoid ingredients with added sugars, oils, and anything you can not pronounce.

When you make these simple choices you will not only improve your health, and your family’s health, but you will create a “wellness spring” that will shift the demand in the marketplace. You will not only take back your health, but also help America take back its health. You vote three times a day with your fork and it impacts our health, how we grow food, energy consumption, climate change and environmental degradation. You have more power than you think. Use it!

Two Slices of Bacon a Day is a Prescription for Cancer

Cancer risk is raised by consuming 2 strips of bacon a day.

Unless you don’t want to raise your risk of cancer by a fifth, then consider cutting back.

New research by the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm found that eating 1.8 ounces (50 grams) of processed meat a day can increase the risk of pancreatic cancer by 19 percent.
For people consuming 3.5 ounces (100 grams) of processed meat, the increased risk jumps to 38 percent and 57 percent for those eating 5.3 ounces (150 grams) a day.

Processed foods should be avoided in a healthy diet.

McDonald’s Figured Out How to Ruin Oatmeal!

Is anyone surprised?

The oatmeal and McDonald’s story broke late last year, when Mickey D’s, in its ongoing effort to tell us that it’s offering “a selection of balanced choices” (and to keep in step with arch-rival Starbucks) began to sell the cereal. Yet in typical McDonald’s fashion, the company is doing everything it can to turn oatmeal into yet another bad choice. (Not only that, they’ve made it more expensive than a double-cheeseburger: $2.38 per serving in New York.) “Cream” (which contains seven ingredients, two of them actual dairy) is automatically added; brown sugar is ostensibly optional, but it’s also added routinely unless a customer specifically requests otherwise. There are also diced apples, dried cranberries and raisins, the least processed of the ingredients (even the oatmeal contains seven ingredients, including “natural flavor”).

A real recipe for healthy steel cut oats is so simple and delicious and can be made in large batches and kept in the refridgerator for quick and easy eating!
