Artificial Sweeteners Might Not Do What You Think, Review Finds — Wellness News

In theory, artificial sweeteners offer consumers the promise of sweet without the extra calories. In the U.S., a quarter of children and 41 percent of adults report eating artificial sweeteners like aspartame, sucralose and stevia. But a scientific review of 37 studies on non-nutritive sweeteners, published Monday in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, found that there is no evidence to suggest sweeteners help in weight management.

"We were really interested in the everyday person who is consuming these products not to lose weight, but because they think it's the healthier choice, for many years on end," Meghan Azad, lead author of the review and an assistant professor in the department of pediatrics and child health at the University of Manitoba in Canada, tells NPR.

My One Trick for Saving Money (and Shopping Healthfully) at the Grocery Store — The Financial Diet

Welcome to a column from The Financial Diet, one of our very favorite sites, dedicated to money and everything it touches. One of the best ways to take charge of your financial life is through food and cooking. This column from TFD founders Chelsea Fagan and Lauren Ver Hage will help you be better with money, thanks to the kitchen. A version of this post originally appeared on The Financial Diet.

I've been trying to get better about how I grocery shop for a while now, and although I know the eventual solution will probably be "order a lot of my stuff online and make store trips only occasionally," for some reason I'm just not doing it yet. The truth is, because I work at home a lot, going to the store is often a good opportunity for me to get out of the house and have something to do. Yes, I walk the pup, but that is only so much entertainment and it's good to have something productive to tack onto my trips.

How Grocery Shopping Is My Own Little Feminist Act — My Healthy

I'm a proud feminist, and I also love to cook. Even more, I love to grocery shop. Picking out a recipe and then hitting the supermarket to put the necessary ingredients into my basket is a small thrill for me during what I'd describe as a bleak time, politically. Of course, just walking into a grocery store to go shopping or stepping into the kitchen to cook can feel like trading in your values and beliefs for age-old gender norms.

Sometimes, I get so giddy in the grocery store that I feel like a feminist failure. Am I doing this wrong? Is it possible to smash the patriarchy with one hand and pick out a package of chicken breasts with the other?

I like to think that the answer is yes.

In a world where women are regularly and systematically stripped of our right to make choices and control our own lives, grocery shopping can be an act of feminism. At least it is for me.

The Key to a Creamy, Dairy-Free Matcha Latte (It’s Not Coconut Milk!) — Delicious Links

(Image credit: Dolly and Oatmeal)

When I'm in need of a little afternoon pick-me-up, but I don't want another cup of coffee, I always turn to matcha. I love its unique flavor, and the fact that it doesn't leave me feeling jittery. I've covered my fair share of matcha drinks here, but this one really stuck out to me. Why? Because it's creamy yet doesn't contain a drop of dairy. Oh, and it doesn't call for coconut milk either.
