We tell ourselves every morning when our alarm clock rings,"Just 5 more minutes, 5 more minutes!" We have the best intentions too when we wake up.
Mornings are a time when many of us feel both physically and mentally tired. Our energy levels are not where they are supposed to be...yet. Main causes of sluggish mornings include, lack of sleep, stress, and having too much of the wrong foods.
The Known Risk
We know eating too much sugar can lead to health problems – one of which is an increased risk of obesity. Excessive weight gain has a direct impact on blood pressure, as numbers sky rocket when the pounds are packed on.
The New Findings
But a recent study, by scientists at the University of Otago in New Zealand, suggests that an Continue reading
Saccharin, an artificial sweetener like sucralose, aspartame, and acesulfame potassium, was popular back in the day because it offered a cheap, calorie-free alternative to sugar. In the 1970s, however, research on the sweetener and its effects on the body led to global concern that it might cause cancer. As a result, Saccharin was banned in the U.S. and Canada.

Did you watch the Marilyn Denis Show on Wednesday when they did the Challenge Check-in? Or were you lucky enough to have attended the show live?
Why do we say lucky enough? Because every audience member received a box of Simply Protein Whey Bars!
Nutritionist Miranda Malisani was on sharing a meal plan that she had prepared for a family who had taken on the weight-loss challenge. She went through recipes for breakfast with quinoa flakes, quick Tacos Mas Machos and sprouted tofu and fresh vegetable stir fry. As a snack she talked about vegetables and our very own Simply Protein Whey Bars.
Miranda spoke about how they are a great snack because few bars on the market have only two grams of sugar in them. She suggests never leaving home without a healthy snack to go and the Simply Bar is the perfect fit.
As well, we liked hearing about how important water consumption and variety in your diet is. Missed the episode? Watch it on her website!
Were you in the audience? Let us know how you like the bars!

Beating the Winter Blues… the end is near!
No matter what the verdict our groundhog friends give us, winter sure does drag on.
What do you do to keep you happy? Positive blogger Dale Partridge shares tips on what he does to lift his mood. He journals at least 3 times a week, watches funny movies and rock climbs.
With having to wait until March 20th for spring to officially come, “winter blues” hasn’t ended yet. Many people may not be their happiest during these dark months, and others suffer from Seasonal Affective disorder (SAD).
