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.

Legend Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder Review #legendorganic

Legend Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder

I’m thrilled to tell you about Matcha Green Tea Powder by Legend Organic; it’s premium Japanese organic matcha green tea that is grown in a small family owned farm in Nishio, Japan sealed in airtight tins then air shipped to USA to ensure its freshness.  I like to add Matcha Green Tea Powder to my morning smoothie.  It helps give me all day energy making it so much easier for me to focus.  I also like that it has 137 times more antioxidants than brewed green tea.

It’s important to me that Legend Organic Matcha Green Tea can only be used in a powdered form because it contains the entire tea leaf which dramatically increases the nutritional content.  It’s also easy to prepare matcha tea first sift the organic matcha tea from Legend Organic using a tea strainer or a sifter to avoid clumps of matcha from forming in the tea and then add 1-2g into a glass bowl, break up any clumps, add 2 to 3 oz. of pre-boiling water to the bowl (180F / 80C).  Then use a bamboo whisk vigorously in an up and down motion until your matcha is dissolved and froth forms on top.  Then enjoy.

Pure Natural Fit Green Tea Complex

Green Tea Complex is designed to help you improve your health and fitness. It contains Green Tea Extract, providing you with as much antioxidants as 3 cups of green tea.

I like that Green Tea Complex can help boost your metabolic rate, preserve lean muscle during weight loss and curb your appetite.  Green Tea Complex has high concentrations of antioxidants to fight free radicals, increase energy, and promote neurogenesis.  I took the recommended dose of one capsule twice a day with a meal.  It was easy to swallow and it didn’t leave any after taste.  It didn’t make my stomach upset and I didn’t have any nausea like I have experienced in the past when taking a natural supplement.

I like that studies show that individuals with higher green tea consumption were associated with lower levels of cholesterol.  Green Tea is also known to increase cardiovascular health, helps with weight loss, help boost immunity under stress and it helps improve sleep quality.  Purenaturalfit Green Tea Complex is proudly made in the USA in a FDA registered and GMP certified facility.
