Editorial: Soy milk may not be the answer.

Soy milk is not an ideal replacement for milk!

If you’re allergic to dairy or lactose intolerant, you may be reaching to soy milk as a comparable alternative.  May vegans feel it is a great alternative but is it?  Generally, soy has a longer shelf life than dairy milk and some many prefer the taste, but is it nutritionally complete?  

 




Editorial: Just say no to wheatgrass

Wheatgrass is not a worthy addition to your diet!

Many health nuts add a shot of this sprouted grain to their diet daily with little to no idea of what it actually is. Wheatgrass is a nutrient-rich type of young grass in the wheat family.  It is created by soaking or mechanically grinding it into water.  It’s sold as a dietary supplement in tablet, capsule, powder, and liquid forms.  You can purchase high priced wheatgrass shots and if often used for juicing or added to smoothies.   As indicated before, it can be expensive and it begs to ask if it is worth the price?
