7 Not So Junky Junk Foods to Grab on the Go

Road trips, gas stops, no time for lunch; we’ve all found ourselves at the convenience store for a fast bite on the go. While a bag of chips or chocolate bar may be an option we later regret; there are fast bites that can actually offer some health benefits. Dr. Christopher Calapai a board certified expert in osteopathic medicine specializing in longevity offers some junk food options to consider the next time there’s no time for an actual meal.

1 – Blue M&M’s and Blue Gatorade – Don’t get the blues about all food dyes. From candy to sports drinks, the unnatural colors of foods today can make you cringe at the thought of what’s making them colored. But, not all colored dyes are as bad as you may think. Research done by scientists at the University of Rochester found that Brilliant Blue G (BBG), found in blue M & M’s and blue Gatorade, could help reduce damage from spine injuries. When BBG was injected into lab rats with spinal cord injuries, it sped up their recovery time and ability to walk.

2 – Cheeze Whiz?? No way!! – Fat isn’t always a bad word. The FDA has stated that not only are all trans fats not bad, some are actually good for you. Conjugated Linoleic Acids (CLAs), although high in calories can help fight cancer, weight gain, diabetes and arthritis. It’s hard to believe, but CLAs are found in Cheese Whiz.

3 – Pork Rinds – Just the words pork rinds sound like instant heart attack. However did you know they are a fantastic source of protein? A one-ounce serving of this fried snack has seventeen grams of protein, seven times the amount of found in a serving of potato chips. Plus, 43% of the fat found in pork rinds come from oleic acid, the same healthy fat found in olive oil.

4 – Beer – Some studies have found that beer can actually help increase bone mineral density because it contains silicon, making bones stronger and less likely to fracture. A Harvard University study found that beer could prevent blood clots and reduce the risk of stroke. Italian researchers found that beer can raise HDL, the good cholesterol in your body. Opt for a light beer with fewer calories to avoid that full feeling.

5 – Graham Crackers — They are the next best things to cookies if you’re trying to keep your health in mind. Graham crackers contain much less sugar than regular cookies and are still sweet enough to satisfy a craving. Plus, they are made with flour that undergoes a special milling process, preserving more of the whole wheat than in usual milling.

6 – Popcorn — This is a snack that gets two thumbs up. Popcorn is packed with fiber and polyphenols, which are antioxidants that help to protect us from heart disease and certain cancers. Surprisingly, popcorn has more iron than eggs and spinach! It is also gluten-free, which makes it an option for those with Celiac Disease and other gluten allergies. Lastly, popcorn is mostly air. This means it fills you up, helping to stave off hunger cravings.

7 – Beef Jerky — Forget about the leather-tasting jerky of years past, today’s gourmet jerky is delicious and can be healthy. Beef Jerky, just like its non-dried version of meat, is high in protein, iron and zinc. It, also, contains heart-healthy monounsaturated fats. Be sure to look for natural beef jerky as the newer gourmet styles that are packed with flavor and free of nitrates.

Today I want to tell you about Lora Inman. I was lucky enough to get to meet this very Couragous Woman! She has wrote her story all down in a book. She told me she once had Depression & Bipolar and her story ended happy that she was better now. I know there are many many people out there suffering from Depression & Bipolar or you might know someone that this might could help! If you do please take the time to look at book by Lora Inman called Running Uphill!
Photobucket
Running Uphill by Lora Inman is a personal memoir of her struggle with depressive illness beginning in her mid-20’s. Running Uphill sheds light on major depression and bipolar from the viewpoint of one who has personally experienced both. It offers hope to those who have been, or currently are, struggling with depression or bipolar disorder, while also providing a more comprehensive understanding for the family, friends, and any others who interact on some level with the victims of an illness that affects an estimated 20 million Americans.

Running Uphill is the story of Lora Inman’s struggle with depression, and ultimately bipolar disorder. It is a story replete with discouragement, fear, and sometimes, defeat. It is an ongoing necessity that those not afflicted can at least partially comprehend its magnitude and not stand in judgment of something they do not understand. Giving up has at times seemed like the only solution; but with persistence and determination we can do more than simply survive. We can enjoy living again. It is possible. There is hope. After more than 30 years of battling this illness, the author has now been symptom-free for over 6 years. Giving up is not the answer!

If you would like to get a copy of the Book Running Uphill its only 10.00!

My family and I don’t use any Air Freshners or Frangrance Sprays at all due to all the chemicals in them. We are allergic to them and my children and I are MCS – Multiple Chemical Sensitive. I was over at Living Well On A Small Budget where Dee Dee has a great post where Andrew Weil, M.D. Tells you somethings you might not have known about all the different things in our homes! I would recommend that everyone read the few articles below to check it out click here & click here & click here!

I bet some are saying how do you make you get rid of odors if you don’t use the frangrances or chemicals? We use all natural items like baking soda, vinegar, proxide. It does work. For those of you who have not seen the my posts on Baking Soda & Vinegar be sure to check them both out!

Today I am going to write about my thoughts on Immunizations/Vaccines. Could it?? Did it?? Maybe?? Cause my child to have Autism or a Learning Disability? I have read so much about this. I didn’t really know anything about any of this until I found out two of my children has Dyslexia. Then I started hearing about all the toxins and harmful things in the immunizations/vaccines. How children were getting Autism. Then I found a great video every parent or parent to be should watch click here to watch!
There there is a website every parent of parent to be should look at click here to visit. Then I was over at

ClassyMommy’s she has a great interview that she did with Dr. Bob Sears, author of The Vaccine Book about Childhood imunizations. To check it out click here! Also there is one more website I would recommened you look at called Vaccine Truth a lady named Wendy runs it. I called her and spoke with her. She was very nice to me and answered all of my questions that I had. I know your probably thinking WOW this is alot work however with our children so precious and not replaceable we might should rethink this. I wish I would have only known about this when my children were younger. I know I would have rethought it alot soon than I did.
