Okay – we have talked about foods that are good for your heart; foods that are good for your mind (brain foods); foods that help prevent cancer.  Yes, there are foods that you should eat to make you a healthier you.  But there are also foods you should avoid.  Read on to find out about those foods you should exclude from your diet in order to have healthier, stronger bones…

 

BONE FOOD by Must Love Foods

 

It can be really challenging to eat one food for this body part and then another for that body part. You end up running around a lot and probably eating a lot more than you planned. At the same time, it’s important to get the nutrients you need to build healthy, strong bones and tissue. To make this a little easier, here are some foods you should EXCLUDE from your diet, to prevent weakening your bones.

 

Number One – Soda. This is a worthless commodity with no nutritional, redeeming value. The phosphoric acid in soda can cause bone breakdown by increasing metabolism of the bone.

Number Two – Processed foods. They have high levels of sodium phosphate (to increase shelf life), so we’re back to causing increased bone breakdown due to phosphorus.

Number Three – Alcohol. Most research says 1 drink per day for women; 2 drinks per day for men.  Any more than that can interfere with calcium absorption from the foods you eat.

 

Try adding foods rich in potassium and magnesium that will help with calcium processing – foods like sweet potatoes, nuts and seeds.  ENJOY!

LOVE WHAT YOU EAT!!

Metropolitan AME Church and New York Avenue Presbyterian are sponsoring a presentation by Dr. Willie James Jennings and small group discussions in Peter Marshall Hall at The New York Ave. Presbyterian Church.  The purpose of the conversations is to

reflect on race relations in our metropolitan area and what churches—and individual Christians of different races—can do to overcome racial barriers that still exist and build a better future together.

 

Coffee and breakfast snacks will be available at 9:30 AM. Child care will be provided.

 

“Luncheon Conversation: Reshaping our Racial Geography” from 12:30-1:30 PM. A free lunch will be served for those who can stay to continue the discussion with Dr. Jennings.

 

Some of the questions we will discuss during the weekend are:

  • How did Christianity, a religion premised upon neighborly love, become so closely identified with racial segregation and oppression?
  • How has our history shaped the racial geography of Washington, DC and what reconfigurations are possible that might promote a more just society?
  • What is necessary for us to have the honest conversations on race that are needed to move us forward?
  • What are some ways that members of predominantly African-American and predominantly white churches in the Washington metropolitan area can work together more effectively?

 

We are expecting a big crowd and space is limited, so please register in advance for this program at www.april30jennings.eventbrite.com.
