What kind of information would actually be useful to have on our food labels? "Nutrition Labels on the Front?" by Marion Nestle at The Atlantic compares current labels with one proposed by Mark Bittman of the NYT (http://www.nytimes.co...label.html). I too believe that food labelling needs to be taken a step (or a leap) further, but would food producers really be willing to subject themselves to Bittman's more informative design?

#RainbowTrout | We already mentioned that salmon is a great option to fight ageing, and trout is no different. Your body needs healthy fats because they protect your cells and promote longevity. But the reason trout is great because it’s high in EPA—a fatty acid that fights cortisol (the stress hormone). Try cooking trout in a pan with 2 tbsp of olive oil. Cook on each side for 5 minutes, or until you achieve your desired level of flakiness. We recommend cooking trout in olive oil. #healthyfoods

And, it’s a powerful antioxidant to boot. #healthyfoods

#WheyProtein | As we age, muscle mass begins to decline at around 1 percent per year. This loss becomes a vicious cycle -- loss of muscle means lower metabolism, loss of coordination and balance and the list goes on. Fortunately, combining strength training with a little “magical” by-product of milk (whey protein isolate) can do wonders. Try adding it to a smoothie, mix in some blueberries, and you’ve got a winner! You can find whey protein powder in most supermarkets or health shops. #health
