Question everything…

I listened to a webinar yesterday and (because I have a strong food background and education) didn’t learn much. I don’t like to sound critical but the host spoke so quickly that even I (a seasoned New Yorker) couldn’t understand half of what he said. Second, the host slammed sugar…this sugar, that sugar, etc. He did NOT dwell on fruit sugars and he promoted summer sweet cherries. OK. This is a healthy food, but, um, filled with natural sugars. So, are we supposed to eat 3 cherries for anti-oxidant benefits? Or is a quart of cherries better? My point is this: Webinars can be helpful and informative. But I got nothing out of this one that we don’t already know: eat your vegetables; mostly greens. Organic, local, non-GMO. This isn’t news. Good info, but not news. #food #cherries #antioxidants #inflammation –from Sally www.holisticyogabysally.com
