Caffeine Isn’t All Bad For You
Myth 4: Caffeine is only bad for you.
Obviously there are risks, especially with higher doses of caffeine, but it packs some perks, too. For example, caffeine seems to lessen risk and symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, it can boost your workout and it may ward off Alzheimer’s onset.

I searched for “Vegan Restaurants” on yelp.
- I consider the search results OK, but they really don’t reflect the difference between Vegetarian and Vegan.
I have eaten at these:
The Green Boheme
1825 Del Paso Blvd Sacramento, CA 95815 (916) 920-4278
- One of the few Totally Vegan Restaurants in the area.

Andy Nguyen’s Vegetarian
2007 Broadway Sacramento, CA 95818 (916) 736-1157
- One of the first Vegetarian Restaurants in the area.
- Look for “Vegan Option” in the menu.
- Tofu “meats” may contain butter or other animal products, thus are vegetarian instead of vegan
- My favourite is “Loving Kindness Soup” which is totally vegan.
