In comparison, the main soda cola companies have almost certainly spent even more on successful campaigns aimed at young people and fast food addicts to get them to drink more soda.

There are so many benefits that come from drinking more water, from bodybuidling to staying fit and having a healthy lifestyle.  Of course, we need to stay away from soda!  


Here are a couple of snippets from this informational article found at Helen's Little Health Corner:


By replacing the majority of your soda and juice drinks with water, you will naturally lose weight even if you don’t change your exercise patterns. Unfortunately, changing your soda drinks to the light or diet version may not help you lose weight because while you are not taking in the excess sugar, the sweeteners used in these drinks often help you maintain water in your body, but in the wrong places.


The majority of sodas are even worse for you. Many of them contain twice as much sugar as the juice drinks, meaning that you are probably going to gain weight if you drink fruit juices and sugar filled soda drinks, rather than drinking water when you are thirsty. If you drink sugar-based drinks every day of the week, then you’re going to be carrying an excessive of weight that is difficult to lose.


Great work Helen Gray @ScabiesWeb

Water is an essential component in overall health that many underestimate while promoting many benefits such as lubricated joints and spinal cord protection.

Roasted Garlic Focaccia

Roasted Garlic Focaccia | Nutrition and Exercise |

Focaccia is so easy to make and the potential ways to flavor focaccia are endless. You can use a larger pan and create a crisper, thinner focaccia that is great to snack on, or use a smaller pan to create a thicker, softer focaccia that can be cut into wedges and used as bread, or for sandwiches.
I had a big bunch of garlic in my vegetable tray that were just crying out to be used, so this week I decided that roasted garlic focaccia was in order. Roasting garlic completely transforms it, and once roasted the flavor mellows and sweetens. Roasted garlic is delicious folded into any bread dough, or slathered across focaccia as I do in this recipe. Round focaccia like these ones are great stuffed as panini by simply slicing them in half crosswise and filling them with your favorite cured meats and cheeses. You can then cut the focaccia into quarters and serve. Alternatively, you can cut these round focaccia into six wedges and use on an antipasti tray, or serve alongside bowls of soup.
