Blueberries in everything?

“Blueberry” items

"Ahh, blueberries...now in everything from your breakfast cereal to muffins, granola bars, and sauces—or are they? Turns out that most of the blueberry-flavored items on grocery store shelves don't feature a single actually berry, just artificial blueberry flavor. Buy your own berries and add them to plain cereal for a real health boost" -Read more: http://www.rd.com/slideshows/foods-you-should-never-buy-again/#ixzz3IEJQBPTf

Metal in your oatmeal?

METAL IN YOUR OATMEAL?

high fructose corn syrup oatmeal Yep, not only are those supposedly convenient packs of instant oatmeal full of sugar and calories, but they're sweetened with high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), which may be contaminated with mercury. A study found mercury in 1/3rd of instant oatmeal at levels three times higher than what should consumed in a day. Not to mention the fiber is processed out of it. Does it really take that long to cook REAL steel cut organic oatmeal? No, truly it doesn't. Cook it the night before, stick it in the refrigerator and heat it up in the morning. Add some healthy cinnamon and nuts. Read more here.

Nuts can help you lose weight!

 

Nuts do contain fat, "BUT the surprising truth is that nuts are one of the best foods for weight loss, according to Harvard researchers. 'Nuts are loaded with protein and fiber, which can help you feel full for longer,' explains Richter. One study in the journal Obesity found that people who ate nuts at least twice a week were less likely to put on pounds over the long run than those who didn't." The fat in nuts is the heart-healthy unsaturated kind.  Keep it to one ounce - 23 almonds, 14 walnut halves, and 49 pistachios." - according to Prevention.com.

Natural maple syrup - good substitute for sugar.

By Ann C Wooledge
on March 04, 2012

Use maple syrup instead of sugar: 

"According to Rodale. com - "In 2011, a pharmacist from the University of Rhode Island discovered 54 previously unknown compounds in maple syrup from Canada, many of which were anti-inflammatory (which protects your heart) and exhibited cancer-fighting antioxidant properties. Ironically, two of the antioxidants they found were later discovered to fight enzymes that lead to type 2 diabetes." Be sure to choose grade B and 100% maple syrup, not just "flavored" maple syrup - BIG difference.

Blackstrap Molasses - more iron than red meat!

According to Rodale.com - "Blackstrap molasses is rich in iron, potassium, and calcium, making it a healthier choice than nutritionally defunct artificial sweeteners or even regular refined sugar.
