CAFFEA TUI NON TOTA MALA EST

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.

This is my favorite quote from the article

” I was fortunate to live in a rather short period of time when mathematical and scientific skills, which are easily acquired with minimal human interaction, were reasonably well rewarded”

This link is a follow up on earlier BBC News story I posted earlier.

Vegan Restaurants in Sacramento

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.
  • Specializes in Raw food and offers the “30 Days Raw Food Challenge”

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.

About Ethopian Foody

  • The traditional Ethiopian (Habesha) diet is light on animal foods.
  • Teff (Eragrostis tef) is indigenous to Ethiopia & Eritrea.
  • In Ethiopia, Teff is grown without pesticides and has few pests or diseases.
