MilKonfused!?

The question about milk has become a controversy. Is it healthy? Is it useless fat? Should it remain in our youth? All these questions have been asked and wondered. Most important, is its saturated fat component bad for you?

Fact is:

A growing body of research suggests that saturated fat in dairy, specifically in milk, may not be as harmful to overall health as previously thought, according to an article on the research by The Washington Post. Citing studies of thousands of people over 10 years, the Post said those studies showed people who drank more milk fat had lower rates of heart disease.

Wanders, an assistant professor of nutrition and dietary researcher at Georgia State University, said that other nutrients in Milk that many other high saturated fats don’t contain are phosphorous, calcium and potassium, which have shown to help fight high-blood pressure. Milk fat also has a form of fatty acids that could be “cardio-protective.”

So, lesson learned here is that whole milk, is still healthy and should be consumed at adult age. Having its full fat potency is essentially more important than seeking its low fat substance which has less nutrition.

Have You Had Your Breakfast?

breakfast

Losing weight is a big factor in people’s lives. Some avoid eating certain meals of the day or substitute with a weightloss *option*.

Lack of time is a bigger factor in life. It’s actually really sad, not having enough time to eat, which is a basic survival tact in life.

WHY SHOULD YOU EAT BREAKFAST?

Because not eating breakfast does more harm to your body and makes you actually gain weight from lack of energy in your body to survive the day.

Because without breakfast, your brain, your organs, your livelihood is inpeded.

More so, some may have the *wrong* foods or should I call them, the wrong *sugars* for breakfast, which can practically mean the same thing, causing the same results.

READ:  Readers Digest to understand what I mean.

 

Remember to  Have Your Breakfast!

What is Kombucha?

Kombucha is a fizzy, fermented beverage made from tea that is refreshing (especially as the weather heats up) but also great for you. The drink is essentially fermented tea: it’s made from sweetened tea, usually black, that is fermented by a bacteria and yeast culture and ends up full of probiotics as a result.

So this drink is a delicious blend and is very beneficial, it is great in moderation.

If you love sparkling drinks, you will love Kambucha.

This drinks has many benefits, such as:

  • Joint health and PH benefits (helps arthritis, etc.)
  • helps digestion, due to enzymes and probiotics inside it
