Thanks to The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien, edited by Humphrey Carpenter, we can literally speak with the author of the world fantasy classic. After all, many of us are looking forward to the last part of the trilogy - 'The Hobbit: the Battle of the Five Ar
Once you experience all the different ways that greens can be delicious, no one will ever have to remind you to eat your greens again. There was a time when the only greens I ate were lettuce and even then, only iceberg and romaine. Later, I came to like spinach. To me, everything else looked like it was spewed out of a lawn mower. Boy, did that change. Today I eat all kinds of leafy greens; in fact, they happen to be my favorite veggies. Good for me because leafy greens are packed with vitamins A, B, C, E and K, minerals like magnesium, iron and calcium, and a bunch of flavonoids and phytochemicals. Greens benefit our health in so many ways including strengthening our immune system, cancer prevention, lowering cholesterol, and improved blood circulation. Find out about the 5 Health Ailments That Can be Treated by Eating More Greens.
Preparing rice in a coffee machine can halve levels of the naturally occurring substance.
Cooking rice by repeatedly flushing it through with fresh hot water can remove much of the grain’s stored arsenic, researchers have found — a tip that could lessen levels of the toxic substance in one of the world’s most popular foods.
Billions of people eat rice daily, but it contributes more arsenic to the human diet than any other food. Conventionally grown in flooded paddies, rice takes up more arsenic (which occurs naturally in water and soil as part of an inorganic compound) than do other grains. High levels of arsenic in food have been linked to different types of cancer, and other health problems.
Andrew Meharg, a plant and soil scientist at Queen’s University Belfast, UK, wondered whether cooking the grain in a different way might help to lessen the health risk. The standard method for making rice — boiling it in a pot until it soaks up all the liquid — binds into place any arsenic contained in the rice and the cooking water.
Meharg and colleagues found that using this method with increasing proportions of water removed progressively more arsenic — up to a 57% reduction with a ratio of 12 parts water to one part rice. That result confirmed that the arsenic is 'mobile' in liquid water, and thus can be removed.

"Exciting news broke recently. Often times we discover unpublished stories from an author after they've died. We have examples of posthumous novels like The Garden of Eden by Ernest Hemingway and The Original Of Laura by Vladimir Nabokov that were unfinished before being published by their respective estates. But the scholars at UC Berkley have found pieces written by Mark Twain that are 150 years old. Not unfinished works, but published stories! Stories that are by no means "new" but new to us!..."
A diet high in stress-inducing chemicals and properties directly affects your adrenal glands and can disrupt your sleep, hormone function, and your weight and mood. Let’s take a look at seven things you can do right now to improve your meals to support your adrenals.
Are your adrenal glands out of whack? Emotional stress and toxic chemicals from the food you ingest can affect your adrenals and in turn cause you to experience sleepless nights, hormone imbalances, weight gain, and wild mood swings. Been there and it isn't pretty.
You now know that what you eat makes the difference in how your body feels and performs. Consuming real whole plant based foods and buying organic as much as possible provides your body with the needed vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients it requires on a daily basis to function optimally.
Health tips: Do your best to reduce or eliminate processed refined food and sugar from your buying habits. Remember sugar is not your friend.
