World famous nutritionists Adel Davis in the sixties warned Americans that our health was in jeopardy if we didn’t change our dietary habits, and she was right. Despite a multi-billion dollar diet industry, Americans since the sixties have grown heavier and heavier, and diseases such as cancer and heart disease have risen to alarming heights. . “Health is on a lot of people’s minds,” says the Food Detective, “but we haven’t really gotten dirty with cleaning up our poor dietary choices. Make it an ongoing resolution to eat more vegetables, drink more water, exercise more and stick to healthy eating practices.”

“Eating right includes more than following trendy diets,” says the Food Detective. The American Institute of Cancer Research advises that we eat a wide variety of food to insure we receive multiple nutrients daily. “That is part of the problem with trendy diets,” says the Food Detective. “Those diets sometimes force us to eat large amounts of foods such as proteins while leaving off those much needed fruits, vegetables, and whole-grains. Such dietary choices may put us at risk for sickness and disease. Scientists remind us that they simply don’t know all the nutrients in foods, so eating from a few food groups or over eating in one food group may be harmful in the end. A great way to expand your eating choices is by adding higher fiber, higher protein grains such as flax and soy.” This Golden Flax-N-Soy Bread from The Food Detectives upcoming cookbook THE JOY OF FLAX & SOY (http://www.bestsoy.com) is made in a bread machine and is an easy, fast, and absolutely mouth-watering way to build in extra nutrition and eat a wider variety of grains. Packed with ground flax seeds and soy flour, it is higher in protein than ordinary breads, has more fiber, and is abundant in a multiple of nutrients.
