Article roundup (1/30)

Looks like a vegetable roundup this week… of course, mama always said to eat your vegetables.

1. Don’t forget to eat your greens
Fascinating article discussing how chlorophyll in greens could reverse the effects of aflatoxin poisoning (like from peanut butter)

2. Eat fat with your veggies
Good fats help the body absorb the fat-soluble nutrients. So put some olive oil on your salad! Good article.

The opulent avocado

It sounds silly to say that there is a special place in my heart for avocados… so I won’t say that. While growing up, I

If you drink this, you will have an awesome life and all of your problems will go away.

A lot of times I end up talking to people about all sorts of ‘amazing and exciting new health drinks’. Drinks like MonaVie, Zrii, Frutaiga, Goji juice, Noni Juice, Genesis, Xango, Mandura, Vemma, and the list goes on and on.

First, let me say that I think a lot of these products are good, and there are some good manufacturers of them, and some are done well and can be beneficial for people. Buuuuuut, I’m gonna go with my gut on this one…

I do not care for the spirit of all of these companies and drinks. Let me explain. Far too many people are looking for a quick fix or a miracle drug or one thing that they can do so they do not have to change their life. The mindset, whether spoken or not, is ‘let me do whatever I want and just take this drink to keep me healthy’ or ‘taking this product is going to cure my ills’ or ‘I am going to use this combined with whatever to help me stay young forever’ or… whatever else is here it bothers me. It’s like the mindset that says, ‘I can eat this terrible thing, I will just exercise a little more to work it off’.

Now that’s a marriage!

If you want to talk about a good marriage, then let’s talk about apples and cheese. First, I see an apple and I don’t get that excited anymore. I mean, I know they have excellent phytonutrients (basically, natural plant chemicals that are not nutrients but protect the plants immune system) and flavonoids (basically water-soluble plant pigments) which provide antioxidant protection. Sure they have good dietary fiber and some vitamin C. Yada yada yada, they are good for you… but in the end it’s just a lonely organic pink lady sitting on a plate:
