Hydration and Beans
Turned on the tube this morning and on FOX, yes Fox news, they were talking about how water was better than sports drinks! Let's see no sugar, no salt, and should be much cheaper - duh! But those commercials are so damn good. By the way, taking a container of water and adding a pinch of salt and a pinch of sugar should take care of your needs.
Here's a recipe for a homemade hydration drink.
Another tip from realage.com
Eating beans at least twice per week may reduce the risk of breast cancer, a new study of women reveals. The fiber, flavonols, and other beneficial phytochemicals in beans may explain their cancer-fighting powers. Good choices include black or red beans, garbanzo beans, and soybeans.
Chicanas and Chicanos should have it made on this one. Unless we've left our traditional diet too far behind! (no pun, well maybe a little pun intended)
Beans are a good protein source too. If you're trying to keep your protein levels high, but don't want to eat too much meat its a good way to go. Including corn, or corn tortillas seems to help make more protein.
