Beer Diet, Anyone?
For 95 to 360 calores per 12-ounce serving, beer has the same amount of antioxidants as wine, and it's good for your bones.
One of America's favorite [or perhaps thee favorite] beverages deserves a little more credit than it's gotten with its undeserved, bad reputation.
Beer is simply a mixture of water, barley, yeast, and hops. The result is alcohol.
The brew also contains a high content of protein and B-vitamins. While drinking too much will cause the alcohol factor to cancel out the vitamin benefits, one or two beers per day is said to be healthy consumption.
Did you know that beer also has silicon, which is only found in few foods and directly linked to strong bones and good health?
If you're not a fan of beer but are intrigued by these benefits, try using it as a cooking ingredient. Often added into soups and other meals, it adds delicate flavor and aroma. Beer-can chicken, beer bread, or beer-battered fish, anyone?
What do you think about the fact that beer isn't so bad after all?
