Well, hello there. Where has time gone? Until I checked my drafts folder earlier today, I hadn't realized I'd started writing 5 posts since mid-May. Time to finish & publish at least one of them.
Here's a round-up of resources I've shared on Twitter during the past couple of months:
Cancer Preventing Properties of Cruciferous Vegetables, a free full-text review article (PDF)
The total antioxidant content of more than 3100 foods, beverages, spices, herbs and supplements used worldwide, an open access, comprehensive database
A recent, comprehensive review on dietary sodium & hypertension: Blood Pressure Canada's background paper (PDF)
Salt Mountains, a compelling if not startling infographic on the prevalence of sodium in processed foods
How to cut down on sodium? Blood Pressure Canada says "Eat freshhhh!" and provides professional resources & educational tools on sodium on their well designed, informative web site.
Osteoporosis Canada recently released new Vitamin D guidelines.
After I read a thoughtful article on dietitians' roles in reducing food waste, on a whim I entered "don't waste food" into Google Images. The results included this classic poster from 1917: "Food - buy it with thought..."
I'll keep this list short, end here and give myself time to finish those other 4 posts. Perhaps I'll publish another one before the end of the summer, but the beans and beets take priority over words at this time of the season ;-).
