Enjoy That Morning Cup of Coffee GUILT-FREE

coffee wallpaper 300x169The Importance of Coffee Our love affair with coffee has a long history. Napoleon-era French diplomat Talleyrand said that coffee “should be hot as hell, black as the devil, pure as an angel, sweet as love.” Bach wrote a cantata in its honor, writers meeting deadlines and students cramming for exams rely on it, and, according to legend, a Pope blessed it.

Processed Meat Can Put Your Long Term Health At Risk

Processed Meat 300x200Processed Meats Linked to Poor Health Outcomes There has long been evidence that the overconsumption of processed foods is linked to an increased risk of a variety of health conditions.

It falls along the same lines as how vegetarians tend to live healthier, more conscientious lives than meat-eaters as a whole, but the act of vegetarianism itself may not be the prime...

How to Blast “BAD” LDL Cholesterol Out of Your Blood…with Food!

artery cp 584 300x168Most people know that there are two types of cholesterol: the “good” and the “wrong” types. The right kind is High-Density Lipoproteins (HDL), and it protects against heart disease by transporting excess cholesterol out of the body. The wrong type, Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL), circulates in the blood, blocks our veins and arteries, and causes a build-up of plaque -- a sticky, gooey substance that sticks to our vessels and eventually hardens and becomes rigid and inflexible. This constricts our blood flow and can lead to a host of health problems: heart attack, stroke and accelerated aging. This is due to a...
