Dump the Twinkies Now

"If man makes it, I don't eat it," Jack LaLanne likes to say. If you think that's a little extreme, you may think again after reading something Patty came across recently.

It's not enough that most convenience foods are loaded with unhealthful saturated or trans fats and/or sugars, the Twinkies people really go the extra mile when it comes making a "non-food" food product.

However, they are not a alone by any means. Protect yourself and your family. Practice reading food labels and feed your children, grandchildren, and yourself only real food.

It's a simple New Year's resolution suggestion that can pay huge dividends.

The Gray Iron Fitness Super Shake

Looking for a New Year’s resolution that can really make a difference and is also sustainable – that is, a resolution with a good chance of actually going the distance?

The Gray Iron Fitness Super Shake may be just what you’re looking for.

So many of us today are so rushed that a decent breakfast often gets short shrift. And unfortunately, this sets the stage for nutritionally empty quick fixes and overeating later.

Instead, try this. Before coffee, tea, or anything else in the morning other than water, drink a tall glass of the Gray Iron Fitness Super Shake. I promise you’ll be ready to fly.

A couple of hours later, have a piece of fresh fruit and whole grain toast with peanut butter, or a hard boiled egg, or bowl of oatmeal.

Your energy will be soaring from first thing in the morning until noon.

And if you haven’t got 10 minutes in the morning to blend your Super Shake, make it the night before and store it in the refrigerator.



The following is for two people. Simply, cut the ingredients in half for one person.

  • 3-heaping tablespoons of freshly ground* flaxseeds.

  • 2-heaping tablespoons of nonfat yogurt containing live friendly bacteria (with no added sweeteners).

  • 2-scoops of whey protein powder (40 grams of protein).

  • 2-cups of fresh or frozen mixed berries (with no added sweeteners).

  • 2-½ cups of plain soy milk (with no added sweeteners).

*Grind the flaxseeds in a coffee grinder.

Blend and drink.

The failure rate of New Year's resolutions is high. Yet the rewards from drinking the Super Shake are so apparent so quickly, this is one resolution people are likely to keep.

Happy 2009!
