After posting the article this week on how simple, nutritious, plentiful and affordable this program can be, I decided to do some further investigation.

First, I went out and double checked out the pricing. 

The Tomatoes were 2 for $3.00 but that is for an imported Italian brand I buy which happens to be no salt added. If I used the Publix brand, they were 1.29 each and if I use the Costco 102 oz cans, it comes to .60 per 28 oz. So, by shopping at Costco, I can lower the cost of the tomatoes to $1.20 a day

The mixed vegetables were .83 cents a pound though the collards were slightly more but do not have to be used. So, at .83 cents per pound, the veggies for the day come to $2.08

With all the current worries about the economy and many people worrying about their finances, I was thinking about my list of "10 Healthy Packaged Foods" and wondering how much I could simplify this program by using these packaged foods, while reducing the cost and optimizing the nutritional value of it while still having plenty to eat.   Simple, Nutritious and Affordable and Plentiful.   A S.N.A.P.!


So, here is one example of what I came up with.


The Simplicity



1 28 oz Can Whole Tomatoes (no salt added) 

1 16 oz Bag Mixed Frozen Vegetables 

4 oz Frozen Chopped Collard Greens 

1/2 Large Bag Success Instant Brown Rice 


This took about 10 minutes to make, only because the rice takes 10 minutes to make. I put the tomatoes and the veggies in a pot and as soon as the rice was done, i added it.

 The following recent article adds more support to the notion of who much to drink

The fluid craze
François Lettea, and Jamie P Dwyerb

The notion of "just add water" has been dealt a blow in an editorial in the nephrology press.1 Negoianu and Goldfarb reviewed the literature and found a lack of evidence for or against the recommendation to drink eight glasses of about 0·24 L of liquid daily. A commonly held belief is that we should drink more fluid. In fact, losing a percentage point of plasma volume does not affect perfusion pressures or even the pulse, yet advertisers whisper about 1% or 2% of dehydration. They would educate us on the perils of dehydration.

The perils of overhydration in athletes are now well known.2 In the 1990s, coincident with the water trend, some US insurance providers stopped compensating for measurement of the third electrolyte, chloride. It was dropped from some standard panels of laboratories. Hypochloraemia, although as common as polydipsia, is under-reported, and can result in fatigue, irritability, and cramps. Additionally, Decaux3 questions the long-held presumption that mild hyponatraemia is asymptomatic: sodium concentration of about 128 mmol/L is associated with falls probably caused by impairment of attention, posture, and gait mechanisms. Some football coaches and professional golf and tennis players take a salt tablet as a fast-acting cure for a cramp. We drink water and thus dilute sodium and chloride, which are abundantly lost in the form of sweat, causing more cramps. Athletic associations and the US military4 now advise against drinking too much fluid, because hyponatraemia was noted in 10-15% of marathon runners.5 Water stations have been cut in half in major marathons.

Thirsty For The Truth On How Much Water To Drink? PDF Print E-mail

If you are thirsty, drink water.   

Sounds simple enough yet over the years we have seen all kinds of rules in regard  to how much, when, what time, etc etc   In addition, over the years, there have been many attempts to come out with official recommendations and guidelines for the amount of water humans should consume. However, it turns out that none of them are accurate. There are so many variable that come into play, and are different for each person, that no single guidelines could ever work.

For many years, we heard that thirst was not a good indicator of hydration status, especially in athletes, and we were all told to drink lots of fluids and given all kinds of formulas to follow.    

Well, it turns out that not only may thirst be an adequate indicator, but some of the formulas resulted in over hydration, which caused its own set of problems. Many athletes who were following the advice of these formulas, developed exercise-associated hyponatremia, a condition in which the body's sodium concentration is diluted too much and several died from this.

Are Flax Seeds Toxic? Pt 3 PDF Print E-mail

Lets look at the last negative claim about flaxseed and that is in regard to prostate cancer.

The literature says mostly that flax seed consumption is good, but there are a few that claim both the oil and the ground seed should be avoided if someone has prostate cancer, or that it may increase the risk of prostate cancer. So, let's take a closer look at this concern.

The concern about flaxseed arose because there are supposed to be a few studies, that are often cited, that supposedly show a positive relationship between a high alpha linoleic acid (ALA) consumption and an increase in prostate cancer. Upon closer look at these studies, we find that one study actually showed no relationship, one study found a "non significant" relationship, and a few of the studies found a positive relationship..

Because of these studies and because flaxseed oil is one of the richest sources of ALA, it was assumed that flaxseed oil (and hence flaxseed) would be a strong promoter of prostate cancer.
