Nutrition Labels Aimed to Dupe Consumers—And How to Tell What You’re Really Eating
Diane Cary still chuckles when she remembers the scene she witnessed in a supermarket cereal aisle. A mother and her child were haggling over which cereal to get. The mother insisted on Grape Nuts because she felt it was healthy, but the kid desperately wanted Count Chocula. Exasperated, the mom put both boxes side-by-side and proposed they review the nutrition labels and buy the more nutritious of the two. When Cary passed the family again in another aisle, they had two boxes of Count Chocula in their cart. As it turns out, in a 100-calorie portion, sugary Count Chocula actually packs more of many vitamins than Grape Nuts (although it does have less protein and fiber).

Nutrition for alkaline body to improve your tennis fitness
Another highly alkalizing protein source is chlorella, which contains almost 70% protein, spirulina with over 60% protein, or green peas with about 30% of protein. The good rule for the raw, whole and unprocessed plants is that the greener they are (more chlorophyll), the more alkalizing they are. Eating a lot of green leafy vegetables will support alkalinizing of your system even during the most intense training phases. Another good source of alkalizing protein are sprouted lentils, beans, peas, seeds or rice. Making a smoothie with green leafy vegetables and some hemp protein after your training session will deliver optimal nutrition for speedy recovery.
