I recently started on the Flat Belly Diet. It is by the people at Prevention Magazine. This has lead me to an interest in a whole foods lifestyle. However I do have a few questions and this seems to be a knowledgable bunch to ask.
I have cut back on my dairy consumption...namely milk (I still eat yogurt and cheese...haven't experimented with non dairy substitutes yet.) I have been drinking original almond breeze almond milk. I really like it!! Can I cook with it? I know there is rice and soy milk too, taste wise are either of these better?? Also from a nutrition standpoint is one better than the other? Any sugggestions on non dairy substitutes for yogurt and cheese? We don't have a Whole Foods or Trader Joe's around here. My options may be limited.
Yesterday I was making Organic Whole Wheat pasta and on the package it said cooking time effects the glycemic index. Can anyone tell me how or why?
While browsing through the "organic food" section of the grocery store I found Synergy Drinks. AThey are 95% Komucha and 5% fruit juice. Full of probiotics. I have added one 8 oz glass a day to my diet plan and have found it has helped with gas issues. DH says it smells rotten and has floaty things in it must be bad. Are the probiotics found in here basically the same in probiotic pills you can buy?
As soon as I post this I will probably thing of a dozen other questions I have had lately. But these are the ones that come to mind most often.
