Just what is in that chicken nugget?

Just what is in that chicken nugget? | Life in the 21st Century | Scoop.it
Researchers found that less than half of what made up a chicken nugget was actually chicken meat.
Amy Melendez's insight:

Chef Jamie Oliver demonstrated this a while back at his Hungtington Kitchen http://youtu.be/l1Sieo5XCs8. It is truly an eye opener.

About the Author | Wheat Belly Blog

About the Author | Wheat Belly Blog | Life in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

Who had the audacity to write such an against-the-grain book exposing “healthy whole grains” for the incredibly destructive genetic monsters they’ve become?

That’s me, Dr. William Davis, cardiologist and seeker-of-truth in health. Over 80% of the people I meet today are pre-diabetic or diabetic. In an effort to reduce blood sugar, I asked patients to remove all wheat products from their diet based on the simple fact that, with few exceptions, foods made of wheat flour raise blood sugar higher than nearly all other foods. Yes, that’s true for even whole grains. More than table sugar, more than a Snickers bar. Organic, multigrain, sprouted–it makes no difference.

This is truly shocking!  Please watch this video and share this scoop with as many people as possible!  

 

Make sure you watch what real chicken looks like under the microscope to see the difference between real food and processed food.  

 

From the article:

 

What are these strange ingredients? We do not know. We also do not know if they are safe or unsafe to consume as not much is known about them. However, these mysterious ingredients are another great reason why we should avoid processed foods and stick with fresh, clean foods.

 

Share this with friends and family who might still be eating McDonald’s food.

Live Like You Were Dying

Live Like You Were Dying | Life in the 21st Century | Scoop.it
It was an odd place for deep conversation. I ran into my friend Rob in the hallway at a large Internet Marketing seminar.
Amy Melendez's insight:

"Listen, I hope you’re in the greatest of health, but I also hope that you are taking time for what really matters in your life.

 

Our minutes are not best spent surfing over to another news website, or watching another television show, or arguing on the Internet.

 

How we spend our time is the most important decision we will make in our lives. What we do with each minute of every day determines our legacy, what our children will remember, and what we will leave behind.

 

Live every day with purpose. Live every day according to your mission and your plan. Have a vision for what you want to accomplish, and act in congruence with it.

 

Love deeper, speak sweeter, and give the forgiveness you’ve been denying.

Live passionately, live honestly, and live the best life that you can."
