Friday Myth: Red Meat Consumption Raises The Risk of All Sorts of Diseases, Including Heart Disease, Type 2 Diabetes and Cancer

Truth: We are constantly warned about the dangers of eating red meat. While certain studies reveal that there are negative effects to red meat, however those studies were focusing on the combination of processed and unprocessed meat together. The biggest study to date – with over one million participants, reveals that unprocessed red meat is not linked to increased heart disease or type 2 diabetes. Further studies reveal that the link to cancer is not as strong as some people would have you believe. The association is weak in men and non-existent in women.

Friday Myth: Low-Fat Foods Are Healthy Because They Are Lower in Calories and Saturated Fat

Truth: When the low-fat guidelines first came out, the food manufacturers responded with all sorts of low-fat “health foods.” The issue with these foods is that they lack in taste once the fat is removed, and to combat the bad taste – food manufacturers added large amounts of sugar instead. Sugar is very harmful, while the fat that is naturally present in food is not.

Entertainer Tip: Watermelon Punch Bowl

Using a watermelon as a punch bowl not only adds a fruity flavour to your beverage, it’s also aesthetically impressive! Give it whirl at your next soiree.

Ingredients

1 oblong seedless watermelon
3 cups of mixer of your choice

Directions

1. Cut top third off watermelon; trim bottom just enough to make a flat surface. Scoop out flesh.

2. Working in batches, puree watermelon in a food processor. Strain through a fine sieve; discard solids. (You should have about 9 cups juice.) Cover rind with plastic wrap. Refrigerate juice and rind until chilled, about 1 hour. Combine juice with mixer; transfer to rind!
