Protein has become a buzzword often associated with health and fitness and protein shakes continue to be all the rage with all levels of athletes, bodybuilders and Crossfitter enthusiasts around the world.

While there are many brands of protein products available, they fall into two general categories: dairy-based whey products and plant protein products. Plant-based protein is much easier to digest and intrinsically environmentally superior.

Nutiva has introduced a new power shake that incorporates thirty superfoods in one shake and is certified organic. Available in chocolate and vanilla, the Organic Plant Protein Superfood 30 Shake is non-GMO, vegan and gluten-free and contains 20 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber per serving.

The Organic Nutiva Superfood 30 Shake is made without dairy, soy, artificial flavors, added sugar or stevia and gets its protein punch from pea, pumpkin, sunflower, chia, hemp and sacha inchi plant proteins. …read more of This Nutrient Dense Vegan Protein Shake Delivers 30 Superfoods! here

Eggs are the number one source of dietary cholesterol in the American diet. Just one egg contains 186 mg of cholesterol. That is the same amount of cholesterol as a Big Mac and more than 60 percent of the calories in eggs are from fat.

Hypercholesterolemia, particularly high LDL cholesterol is a recognized risk factor in the development of Coronary Heart Disease (CHD), but what about diabetes?

Researchers have found a graduated increase in the risk of developing type 2 diabetes with a corresponding increase in the amount of eggs consumed. Eating just one egg a week appears to increase the risk of diabetes by 76 percent. Two eggs a week appeared to double the risk, and just a single egg a day actually tripled the risk. [1] Type 2 diabetes is a leading cause of blindness, amputations, kidney failure and death.

Health conscious cooks are always on the lookout for ways to eliminate artery-clogging ingredients and a great place to start is in baking. …read more of Luscious Glazed Ginger Bundt~ No Eggs, Dairy or Added Fat ~ Neat! here

Facts about canned goods that may surprise you!

Canned food has been feeding the world for more than 200 years.  Necessity is the mother of invention and like many inventions the metal can came into existence to solve a specific problem.

In the early 19th century, soldiers in Europe had to carry their food supplies for long distances in harsh conditions and the first cans were designed to sustain them in the field. This innovation proved to have many benefits for civilians, offering wide food access, previously restricted by seasonal factors and geographic reach.

Today, can manufacturing is a major economic force. Americans use more than 130 billion cans a year, which translates into an eight billion dollar industry with 200 manufacturing plants in 38 states, employing more than 35,000 workers.

Endlessly adaptable, versatile and efficient, the metal food can remains one of the safest of packaging solutions and the most economical and environmentally friendly. …read more of Cans ~ Economical, Convenient and Environmentally Superior here
