FYI...

Okay, here's some crazy info that I just got off AOL. Don't look to me for it's validity, blame AOL. I thought this was so interesting though. Thought I'd share.

Power Foods:

-Sunflower Seeds keep you from going grey! (so do crabs, oysters, almonds, cashews and B6!) Who knew???

-Apples reduce your risk of cancer!!

-Salmon can lower your risk of heart attack, high blood pressure, plaque build-up, lower your triglycerides and cholesterol. Walnuts, flax seed, soybeans, avocados and olive oil are also highly recommended for the same reason.

-Olive Oil can stave off skin aging and wrinkles. So can whole grain breads and nuts.
Tofu can promote hair regrowth for those who have receding and thinning hair.

-Blueberries can help your memory and fight off some cancers.

-Hot peppers can boost the metabolism as well as coffees and green teas.

-Eggs, chicken, fish and lean cuts of meat can reduce muscle loss.

-Water can fight the effects of dehydration in skin which in turn causes a younger looking skin. Get your 8 glasses of day folks!

-Carrots, Spinach and Beef can protect the eyes from age related diseases.

Here are a few anti cancer diet foods:
Tumeric, Japanese Green Tea, Ginger, Pomegranate Juice, Brussels Sprouts, Bok Choy, Chinese cabbage, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Garlic, Onions, Leeks, Shallots, Chives, Soy Products, Oranges, Tangerines, Lemons, and Grapefruit,
Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, cranberries, and lastly, my favorite, dark chocolate!

So now you know. There's your grocery list. Get out there and shop!!!
