This week: superfoods, stevia, eco-friendly mineral water, DHA, and plastics in food

Ever notice how superfoods seem to come and go?  I suspect that might be a clue that their superpowers are somewhat overrated!  In any case, amaranth seems to be the super-food of the moment.  (Quinoa is so 2011!) In this week’s newsletter, I had some advice on where this latest obession fits into a healthy diet.  Also, some thoughts on stevia and whether it might be too refined to be considered truly wholesome and how to lower the carbon-footprint of your sparkling water habit.

In the Nutrition Diva podcast,  I take a sobering look at how much plastic seems to be finding its way from our food into our bodies (and what to do about it).  Also,  a review of the latest evidence on  DHA, ADHD, and Alzheimers.

And finally, if you happen to be flying United Airlines over the holidays, you’ll be able to tune in to the Nutrition Diva podcast (along with several other Quick and Dirty Tips shows) at 30,000 feet!
