The Health Benefits Of Sweet Potatoes

This super food is no longer just for the holidays. They are loaded with vitamins; minerals; antioxidants; protein and fiber.

But Do You Like Sweet Potatoes?
First you must like them to benefit. In fact when was the last time you ate one, as a child maybe? Try this, add cinnamon (which is a powerful antioxidant itself), organic butter with cane sugar. Bake one with your favorite grass fed steak, the two flavors will fight with each other to win over your taste buds. The word “Delicious” is an inadequate description. It’s an explosion of flavor.

Orange Flesh Potatoes
Okay now that you can enjoy them, check out more health benefits. The orange varieties have beta-carotene for eye health, eat them with butter as the carotene needs a little fat to be effective.

The Purple Ones!
Purple sweet potatoes have anthocyanins which are antioxidants aka anti-carcinogenic aka cancer fighters! Glycemic index is 70, medium for diabetes. They have anti-inflammatory properties. Prolonged inflammation leads to scar tissue resulting in cells which malfunction.

Lastly, don’t boil sweet potatoes simply steam or bake splaying them open like a baked potato or slice the long ones into half inch coin shaped bites.

How To Save Money On Sweet Potatoes
If they are over $1.50lb wait and buy them cheaper, unless there purple, then buy them if under $2.00lb

Sweet Potatoes How Much How Often?
A serving size is one cup, so one to two cups a day.

FAT IS GOOD FOR YOU, FAT IS GOOD FOR YOU

We will cover why nutritionist know now that fat is good for you in just a moment.

Well shoot, just spent the last 20 mins writing feedback for your article Anucyia which I liked below here, and I be damned if I just didn’t lose it some were. Doesn’t that just make you seething mad when that happens? Does me.

Whelp, the long and short of it. We need good fats they have CLA and more in them, aiding in digestion and absorption and synergizing with other foods for weight loss, and lower insulin levels and more.

Wrote how frustrating searching for whole milk yogurt in a sea of 0%, 2% and Low Fat versions. Most do not know how critical the good fats are so grocers stock 50 varieties of low fat yogurts to buried 1, 2, maybe 3 yogurts with whole milk.

Recently I blogged on this very topic of good fats at Grocery411 entitled “Health Benefits Of Yogurt” educating my visitors on how to “Get skinny by getting fat!” The right kind of fat.

I managed to recreate the post, now less frustrated and my apologies for poor language albeit timely descriptors!

Thanks again will repost your article "The Workout Diet" Anucyia below.

Five Fabulous Flavonoids

(Plus serving size and smart price range)

  1. Blueberries, raw, ½ cup, $1.00 - $3.00lb
  2. Black tea, brewed, 1 cup, cheap!
  3. Cranberries, raw, dried, chopped, 1 cup, $4.00 - $5.00lb

Flavonoids are not friends with heat or cooking so eat as fresh as possible, exception is the brewed black tea.

So every time you see blueberries, think flavonoids and splurge. If you don’t think flavonoids then definitely buy them!

99¢ Only Store, Only It Cost More Than 99 Cents

Is It…

The “99¢ Cent Only Store

Or the “$1.99 Cent Sometimes Only Store

Or the “$4.99 Cent Only If You Catch It In Time Store?”

I actually believed everything in the store was only 99¢, much to my surprise I should have used better sense.

I mean isn’t business built on the sleight of hand, clever packaging, and speaking in forked tongues. You bet it is.

Believe It Or Not, You Are In Business Too

You are in the: Washington; Wú; Garcia; and (insert your last name here) Business! The number one business goal is to create and keep your families’ bottom line profitable.

When the 99¢ Only or for that matter any grocery store puts on a sale try this; get your calculator out; read the price and size twice; make notes; create a shopping list then do your shopping, smart. And always eat before you shop.

Groceries Are Your Second Largest Expense

More than your car, your utilities and well you get the picture. An expense this large, groceries or not I realized needs to be treated with respect. Respect versus “Let me run in, grab whatever I need, leave a trail of money along the grocery aisle floors then blow right out of there in the car.”

In your mind, raise your hand if over years of buying groceries you began telling yourself:

  • I gotta eat?”
  • Geez, it’s only groceries, not a new car, I’ll buy whatever.”
  • I work hard and certainly I can buy what I want at a darn supermarket!”

Ouch I kind of thought so but don’t despair!

Might There Be A Better Way?

Have you ever wondered why someone hasn't build a grocery app? To compare groceries like this site which compares iPhones. It’s called price transparency. Precisely the transparency shoppers need buying groceries. Only one spends 12-24 times the amount on groceries as they do on the iPhone a one year. The most needed app? Why the grocery price transparency app of course!

It might work like this, Cindy spots a low price on red salmon and texts it into the app, alerting fellow shoppers like Bobby. Bobby loves red salmon and stocks the freezer. Next week Bobby sees fresh grapes for under a buck and does the same. A kind of “Pay it forward.”

Lastly and maybe most importantly this app, well it kept a running tab on previous cheap prices for salmon and grapes. Now when Cindy and Bobby go shopping again they can pull out the app and do a search for “Salmon” and see what the most recent and lowest price salmon was sold for. So they would know what and what not to pay.

By this time Bobby and Cindy are a couple and thanks to their app are making informed decisions before buying that salmon. Or you know...investing in their second largest business expense, groceries.

Who’s Americas Low Price Leader?

Wal-Mart,

What’s the deal on your prices?

Selling your Wal-Mart brand of organic milk for $4.38 a half gallon?

When Costco is at $3.66, Smith’s (Kroger) and Albertsons (VONS) sells their brands for $3.79. That sixty cent difference adds up, and up and up. If that’s not low enough well, Kroger and VONS often puts on sale for $3.50.

Nutritious organic foods are expensive enough to cultivate and bring to market, a grocery store your size should make the prices competitive.

Greek Yogurt vs Yogurt

First, What Is Yogurt?

“Yogurt is made by adding cultures of live bacterial strains to pasteurized milk and incubating the mixture at 110˚F until the desired flavor and thickness is reached. The lactic acid produced by the culture coagulates the milk protein, thickening the milk and adding the characteristic tart flavor. Flavoring, nonfat milk solids and stabilizers may also be added”. Source http://bit.ly/1Jgphzv

Secondly, What Is Greek Yogurt?

Simply put Greek yogurt is yogurt which goes through a straining process to remove most of yogurts sugars, sodium and fats! If we only look at the nutrient facts at face value we might conclude that yes, Greek yogurt is healthy. It has 25-45% more protein, and protein like fat gives us that wonderful feeling of satiety. More on that in a moment.

Whole Milk, Greek Yogurt And Weight Loss

Thus after eating whole milk Greek yogurt you’re full. You’re full because all that muscle building protein combined with the satiety of its fats. The key is you get a true feeling of fullness. If your full from this superfood you will not even think about snacking which is where those bad calories add up, quickly.

I hope that makes sense because often grocery shoppers will buy the low, non-fat or cheapest yogurts. Perhaps not a well thought out purchase. What may be smarter is being full, (by eating whole milk Greek yogurts, not the popular zero, 1 or 2% varieties) do this and you avoid impulse snacking. Trust me here on this.

The beauty of whole milk, Greek yogurt is that it gives you the protein to build muscle and the benefits good fat offers, both of which make you feel full and satisfied. This is in part, the difference between Greek yogurt vs regular yogurt.

Yogurt Price Comparison Chart - Southwest Region

Yogurt Prices

Yogurt prices will vary depending on the quality and care that goes into making a yogurt. For example, cow’s which are 100% grass fed, humanely treated and allowed free range, well, the price is about double. Double the cost of regular yogurt.

Let's consider for a moment the cows which were partially grass fed and less well cared for. Yes the yogurt is less expensive. But the bummer here is that the bioavailability of nutrient value drops.

By the way bioavailability is an important concept to understand when we talk of nutrition. In this scenario, it is the amount of wholesome nutrients produced from these well treated cows, that our bodies can absorb and put to use. Our bodies cannot well absorb or put to use processed foods or those regular yogurts to any high degree of bioavailability.

The Health Benefits Of Yogurt (part 3)

Tags: Live Active Cultures; Greek Yogurt VS Yogurt; Yogurt For Vaginal Health; Yogurt Prices

Whole milk Greek yogurt is an awesomely delicious treat. In the past two blog posts entitled the “Health Benefits Of Yogurt Parts 1 and 2”, we discussed those benefits. But let’s quickly review them.

Good Fat And Yogurt, Smart!

One small serving size of a cup of whole milk yogurt fills you up! And how you get that wonderful feeling of satiety unlike one gets with 0%, 1% or 2% yogurts. That whole milk yogurt contains conjugated linoleic acid or (CLA). CLA can decrease the body’s inflammation occurring from several things but processed foods are one. CLA reportedly minimizing cardiac events, blood sugar spikes and bone loss. CLA is a saturated fat so just respect the serving size because good CLA fat is still fattening.

Greek Yogurt VS Regular Yogurt

Why is Greek yogurt healthy? Because it’s loaded with protein which also leads to satiety. Thus after eating whole milk Greek yogurt you’re full, thus less snacking on the foods you are trying to avoid. I hope that makes sense because it’s often shoppers buy the low or no fat foods. Not always wise, but what is wise is being full and not being driven to impulsively snack.

Whole milk Fage Greek yogurt is an excellent choice. Loaded with protein and good fats. Brown Cow is a great whole milk yogurt, try the maple, oh wow talk about taste. Unfortunately at the time of this writing, the Brown Cow whole milk yogurt is not Greek style. Greek Yogurt vs yogurt: Greek yogurt is strained removing most of the whey. Regular is not strained in that fashion.

Good For The Gut And More

Ensure your yogurt lists “Contains” live active cultures, not “Made” with or from live active cultures. It may read just “Cultures" but settle for only “Contains live active cultures or enzymes.” This is great for the stomach.

It is good bacteria which spoils the bad bacteria. Woman know to eat yogurt for vaginal health to keep the flora normalized. Woman have used yogurt for yeast infections for years. There I said it!

Health Benefits Of Yogurt part 2

Become Skinny By Getting Fat!

Eat yogurt. In fact eat Greek yogurt which has twice the protein of regular. In fact eat Greek yogurt made with whole milk. Here’s why, if you want to lose weight avoid 0%, 1% and 2% milk fat and you’ll get the full health benefits of yogurt.

The Warm And Fuzzy Feeling Of Satiety

Do you remember that fat seems to fill you up? Well whole milk (Good fat) Greek (High protein) yogurt gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling of fullness called “satiety.”

A Pearl Of Wisdom

Wisdom is when you feel full, you don’t snack. Snacking that adds up calories. You know, those calories that stick to us like glue. Eat rather compulsively, here is some good news. You know what begins to happen? Over time, as you eat more natural and healthy foods. Foods like nuts, yogurts, cage free, organic, and grass fed food your desire to eat, drops. Your body knows when it’s being fed healthy and right so the stomach tells the mind (biochemical reactions), “Hey were good down here, no need to snack now.” And you’re none the wiser, you don’t even know its happening. After months you just know you have lost weight. This is what dieticians call “Eating right.”

Good Bacteria Keeps You Alive And Well

So get skinny by getting Greek whole milk yogurt or at least the whole milk. Oh and be sure to buy the yogurts with “Live activated enzymes” written on the Nutritional Facts label. “Live” is the keyword, not all are “Live.” If the bacteria is not live, then its dead to you.

Examples of enzymes which can be live or dead:

• S. thermophilus

• L. bulgaricus

• L. acidophilus

• Bifidus.

Yogurts’ enzymes are those good bacteria’s you hear about from time to time in your food which you may have always wondered “How weird is bacteria in your food.” Well anyway their function is to help your immune system fight off illness. We’re talking food which is so much better than processed foods.

Greek, Whole Milk Yogurt Solid Gold

Now combine what you know about live enzymes, omega-3, CLA, Greek, whole milk and diet from the other two yogurt blog posts, and you have a superfood that just went solid platinum into your diet. Now if those aren’t awesome health benefits I don’t know what is!

Keeping It Frugal

Seeing’s we here at Grocery411 are all about saving money on groceries we would be remiss if we did not mention savings. So keep an eye out when the 32 ounce size cartons go on sale. Save those little 5.3 ounce containers for the occasional treat only. The 32 ounce cartons will cost you about .65 cents a serving at the time of this writing in 2015. You will get four, once cup servings out of the 32 ounce carton.

With any new food regimen check with your doctor.

USDA recommends 3 cups of dairy daily for adults.

Good Effects Of Chia Seeds

So What's The Good Effects Of Chia Seeds?

People concerned about nutrition and health are asking about the good effects of chia seeds. It can be said that eating 1-2 tablespoons of chia is reminiscent of having an energy drink (for stamina); oatmeal (for fiber); steak (for protein); red salmon (for omega-3) and blueberries (for antioxidants), the best of all worlds.

What Kind Of Chia Seed Should I Buy?

Research shows the organic dark black seeds have the most nutrient value the oils are still fresh the darker the seed. You’ll want to avoid the brown ones.

Chia seed has little to no flavor which makes it nice to add to most dishes and beverages. Now you can turn your favorite foods into a superfood (But really there is no such thing as a superfood, it’s a marketing term.)

Add Chia Seed To:

Try adding 1-2 tablespoons to your: oatmeal; cereal; smoothie; yogurt; pomegranate or orange juice; water or favorite dish. I put 2 tablespoons in a 8-10oz glass of POM Pomegranate Juice then let it soak overnight and sip on it over the morning. Google pictures of Mamma Chia® Vitality drink to see what it resembles.

Bowel Regularity A Good Effect Of Chia Seed

It’s been reported by people who say there is no finer all natural or more means of staying regular. Making this superfood a superhero in the bathroom!

Is There A Drawback To Chia Seeds?

Chia seed has been used for centuries even used for currency by the Aztec. However today most studies have been carried out in vivo and according to the National Institute of Health more human studies need to completed to understand the safety and efficacy of this medicinal food.

Be sure to never eat the seeds dry as they swell up 12 times their size, you don't want it swelling in your throat! As with any new diet change always check with your medical professional especially if you are on blood thinners or have low blood pressure. Chia seed may cause a little bloating and gas especially when you first start using it, just like if a raw food diet could.

Chia Seeds, How Much How Often?

Adults two tablespoons of dried seed as bought from the store. Some of us take it daily, again always consult with your medical professional to get them in the loop, that’s just smart health care.

For good effects of chia seeds or any food take a vacation from it occasionally which could help prevent developing an allergy to this medicinal food.

PUFA’S And Benefits Of Walnuts part 2

You know, it’s that good fat in salmon and of course walnuts. Not fond of fish or don’t want to carry a salmon around with you? Then get your PUFA’s from walnuts.

How To Add Walnuts Into Your Diet

Walnuts are convenient, easy to transport and loaded with nutrients. Put them in your pocket, purse, desk or auto. It just might keep you from picking up your favorite junk food at 4pm, and those unwanted pounds.

How Can I Save Money When Buying Walnuts?

You need to know where to buy them, fresh and cheap. That is if you want to regularly incorporate those excellent health benefits of walnuts into your diet.

Because let me tell you that in tracking prices on groceries weekly, for four years in a row, we have yet to see a low prices on walnuts, or nuts in general at supermarkets. So buy them either online or at Costco and Sam’s Club warehouses, that’s where you’ll find lower prices.

Walnuts, How Much And How Often?

Adults Start the day with six whole walnuts (14 halves) or ¼ cup and get 100% of your omega-3.

Robbing Piggy Banks Just To Buy Groceries?

Many supermarkets in your home town will offer discounts at different times of the month to various groups of people to earn your business.

For example in Las Vegas, NV Albertsons offers 10% discounts to Sports Fans, First Responders, Veterans and Seniors.

While the offer is only once a month, it’s still is good to save $15 on $150 worth of food, right?

Ask what is not covered under the discount. They may not discount dairy, alcohol and tobacco for example.

Find out which of your favorite stores offer discounts then put it in your smart phone to get a reminder the day before.

This allows you time to plan and make a thorough shopping list!

Costco And Sam’s Club Are Cheap Right? Wrong.

"Now wait, just a doggone minute. I am an elitist, us members pay a membership fee. This fee guarantees that shopping there is automatically smart and that we always gets the best prices on groceries because I am buying in bulk.

Furthermore I don't need to be bothered with comparing prices on something as silly as groceries, and nor do I have to run around to other “less elite" stores. I am doing what's brilliant because every time I go there the place is packed with shoppers and parking, and check-out especially are busy.

That said, if everyone is shopping there, well the only logical conclusion one can deduce is that being a member and buying food in bulk, big jars, big lots is just plain smart, because everybody else is doing it!" Right? No, wrong!".

That was this writer, prior to Grocery411.

We were astonished at our findings when we began to dig around and compare those warehouse prices to weekly sales at local grocers. Actually were pretty dumbfounded by what we found. Foods we regularly eat was not cheaper. But that the local grocery store sales are cheaper time and time again.

This needs to be qualified, the so called “sales” at the local grocery in general were not less expensive. No, it was the sales we deemed low enough to go on our then weekly list of cheapest groceries was what we found cheaper than these two warehouses.

So much so that we found including the warehouses to our regular list did not add up to a savings large enough to even track and put on our list. Especially if your not a member.

Bottom line is that the groceries we most consume weekly at Sam's and Costco were not as cheap as the store sales. That said both warehouse stores are cheaper on this list of sundries.

Grocery411 has collected the lowest prices weekly over the past several years to establish a baseline in which to compare the store sale ads too..
