Eat This, Prevent That!

Eat Protein in the Morning, Prevent Late-Night Snacking - We like protein. It puts the kibosh on hunger. And here's a reason to like it even more... According to a small yet intriguing study, eating a protein-packed breakfast could reduce unhealthy evening snacking. That rocks! Click here for some HG-friendly b-fasts loaded with protein.

Eat Fiber, Prevent Stroke - Findings recently published in Stroke, an American Heart Association journal, show that greater intake of dietary fiber is significantly linked to a lower risk of a first stroke. Good to know! Click here for classic fiber finds, and click here for some recent favorites.

Eat Olive Oil, Prevent Alzheimer's - The American Chemical Society just published new info on olive oil's beneficial properties. Lower incidence of Alzheimer's disease has been noted in Mediterranean countries before, but until recently, it was attributed to the monounsaturated fats in olive oil. New research shows it could be due to a substance called oleocanthal that's present in olive oil. Our current oil of choice is this special blend (olive included!) by Pompeian.

The Buzz...

We know, recall news is a bummer, but we want you to be safe and informed. This one's a doozy... There's a massive multistate recall on frozen foods from Farm Rich, Market Day, and Schwan's brands, due to E. coli contamination. Click for all the info, and check your freezers! ***The next time you look for bone-in pork loin chops at the store, you might be confused to see them labeled "T-bone chops." The US meat industry has officially renamed more than 350 cuts of meat in an effort to simplify finding what you want. Many pork cuts have been assigned names frequently given to similar beef cuts, making it easier to spot lean cuts since people are generally more familiar with those names.
