Is cereal healthy or whole grain bread?

Is cereal healthy or whole grain bread?

Eat 2 Beat CA, Pt.12: WHOLE GRAINS: For years, we've been urging our patients to eat three to five servings of whole grains a day. There's good reason: they are linked to a lower risk of colorectal cancer, as a 2013 Danish study of 108,000 people has found. What's more, whole grains offer protection against other chronic conditions, including heart disease & type 2 diabetes. (Ref: AARP, 5/2014) ...Read more

Is multigrain or whole wheat bread more healthy?

Food Question: Both of these breads are just a bit better for your health than bleached flour breads but, just barely.

Might whole wheat pancakes be unhealthy?

Might whole wheat pancakes be unhealthy?

Whole wheat pancakes: Pancakes themselves are just simple sugars (even "whole wheat" pancakes are not complex carbohydrates truthfully) with liquid sugar (syrup) and fat (butter) added. So pancakes are a bad nutritional choice made worse. And we can't rescue any health value by adding things like blueberries or cranberries. If you make them with psyllium husk added, you can at least get some fiber in there. ...Read more

Are low carb diets healthier than diets with whole grains, vegetables, fruit and lean proteins?

Are low carb diets healthier than diets with whole grains, vegetables, fruit and lean proteins?

Not necessarily: There is no single diet that is best for everyone. I believe it is wise to minimize sugars and simple starches, but i believe a diet with whole grains, vegetables, fruit and low-fat proteins is healthier than a strict low carb diet (which is relatively high in fat and protein). See http://drrandybaker.Com/2013/01/20/diet-and-health/ for my essay on the pros and cons of various diets. ...Read more

Is fruit and veg whole healthier than smoothies (liquidised)?

Is fruit and veg whole healthier than smoothies (liquidised)?

Smoothies have more sugar from the fruits and veggies due to more being used to make the smoothie. Plus, most smoothies have added ingredients like sugars, syrups, powders, etc - unless you make it yourself. ...Read more

Is oatmeal/fruit-breakfast, chickenbreast sandwich/veggies on whole wheat-lunch, and salmon/chicken and veggies sweet potatoe-dinner a good plan?

Reasonable but...: Sounds good overall but advise more protein at breakfast- add walnuts/pecans to oatmeal or have organic eggs sometimes. Advise organic chicken- if not, it's fed gmo feed which may prove hazardous-see http://www.Psrast.Org/ advise wild salmon as farmed has more toxins. Have veggies of all colors & include salads.

Ingredients: potato powder, potato starch, modified food starch, vegetable oil. Is it healthy?

REALLY UNHEALTHY!!!: This is recipe for disaster. Potatoes are in the environmental working group's dirty dozen foods-they're high in pesticides if not organic & are readily converted to sugar so raise blood sugar, causing weight gain & increased risk of diabetes. Generic "vegetable oil" is almost certainly corn, soy or canola which are all gmo if not organic & very toxic, fried potatoes have carcinogenic acrylamides. ...Read more
