Eat Legumes; Live Longer

Those that eat legumes live longest reports a study by the National Aging Research Institute in Melbourne, Australia.

"There is a 7% - 8% reduction in mortality hazard ratio for every 20g increase in daily legume intake"

The study showed that legume consumption is the most protective dietary predictor of survival regardless of their ethnicity.

Legumes have long been associated with good health, and are a staple among vegetarians and vegans. Legumes include soy, tofu, natto, miso, brown beans, peas, lentils, chickpeas, white beans among others.

To your best health!

Tropical Treats In Arizona

Posted on March 8th, 2007 in tropical fruit by Vegan Raw Diet Advocate Comments Off on Tropical Treats In Arizona

If you live in the Phoenix metro area, you're in for a tropical treat.

As we near the end of the citrus season here, other tropical fruits
are becoming available at local stores. I'm particular to organic
pineapple, and when I noticed it at my local Fry's, I stocked up.
The brand is the same one carried by our now defunct local
co-op, so I feel comfortable with the choice.

Our local Safeway as well as Sunflower Market also have an
abundant selection of organic bananas and mango... all reasonably
priced.

Enjoy these tropical treats!
