Why a real breakfast of champions includes the yolk, too.

The BioSync Team's curator insight, November 10, 2013 7:15 PM

Recent studies and progressive nutritionists say it's time to include the yolk in your breakfast because:


  1. Egg yolks are nutrient dense
  2. Cholesterol has important functions in the body
  3. Dietary cholesterol, like that found in eggs, doesn’t raise blood cholesterol
  4. Whole eggs can lead to weight loss
  5. They’re hearty and satisfying

Why It's Important To Keep Your Gut Healthy

Why It's Important To Keep Your Gut Healthy | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

"Be honest: when was the last time you thought about how healthy your digestive system was?"

 

The truth is that we only tend to think about it when something goes wrong, but Gut Week is all about focussing on how important it is to consider what you eat.

 

Think of the digestive system as the pistons of an engine - to get the most amount of energy, and to ward off future illnesses, it's important to keep it running right.

The SAD diet just keeps getting sadder .... and now even if you are buying organic at the local farmers market you now need to ask are you using well water or reclaimed/recycled water?!?

Most of the time this happens when the economy is bad and everybody wants or has to "save" on what they buy or the ingredients they use.

We are actually "made of" a lot of bacteria; maintaining our gut flora is essential (the goal is to have more beneficial than harmful bacteria).

“Food Deserts” in Canadian Cities Prevent Revitalization

“Food Deserts” in Canadian Cities Prevent Revitalization | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it
Efforts to attract affluent residents to live in new downtown redevelopment projects are being hampered by a lack of basic amenities - most notable of which is access to grocery stores within walking distance.

“Food deserts” are urban areas with limited access to healthy and affordable foods. Initial research has identified serious food deserts in Saskatoon, Kingston and London, while cities such as Edmonton and Montreal were found to have generally good food access. Food deserts are often tied to low socio-economic income status and are associated with a variety of diet-related health problems.

If a food contains corn, soy, canola or sugar beets, and are sourced in the US, it has a 70-80% chance of containing genetically altered ingredients. Most processed food, many canned and frozen foods contain these ingredients.
