Foodie Corner – 2015 – Post #7 – What’s New

My motto used to be “If it didn’t get done in the microwave, it didn’t get done.” I’ve since learned to use my electric oven and its four-burner cooktop. But …

Foodie Corner – 2015 – Post #7 – What’s New

What is the latest nutrition tip you’ve heard about?

My two cents, but please share yours:

Apparently, some saturated fats are back on the healthy list. These foods include real butter (Yeah!), coconut oil, olive oil, avocados, seeds, and nuts. Lean red meats are back in favor, too. Now, if they could just find some scientifically valid research that puts sugar back on that list …



  1. I don’t think sugar has a chance. But honey? Unprocessed honey has a good chance of joining butter on the good-for-you list.

    • Keeping fingers crossed for the unprocessed honey, D. Wallace. Cheers, Ashley

  2. All those people doing all those studies; what I wonder is what did they eat for lunch? The real trick is not overdoing any particular food, though children seem to focus on one food for a while and then move on…a balanced diet over time. Of course Girl Scout Cookies (and Oreos) must be eaten quickly regardless of the amount of sugar in them.

    • So true about the cookies and Oreos, Kay. I suspect the researchers eat lunch at their local McDonalds. 🙂 Cheers, Ashley

  3. Sugar never left the list. I’m a scientist and I’ll make up that study, because I believe it should be true:D

  4. The sugar that is back on the list is the unrefined sugar. The reason white sugar and corn syrup and sugar substitutes are so bad is that their genetic makeup is changed. The human body was made to eat the natural, not the boxed man made. Here a box, there a box, a can, etc. on the whole is not good and causes problems in one’s body which then in turn needs to see a doctor to give pills which cause more medical problems. It all starts with the mouth – what you put in it.

    • It sure is tough, Paula, when one’s born with a fully developed sweettooth. 🙂 Cheers, Ashley
