    Caffeine, a stimulant that occurs naturally in some foods and beverages and is added to others, is more widely consumed than you might think. It is present in coffee, tea, colas, energy drinks as well as chocolate, chocolate drinks and some flavours of ice cream. In moderate doses, caffeine, which stimulates the central nervous system, can make you more alert and may have a beneficial effect on your memory, mood and general cognitive function.

    Why you may want to consider eating an avocado a day

    Many of us are eating avocados every day – or at least that’s what the 90,000+ avocado toast posts on Instagram would suggest. Here’s a big myth debunked: for one, eating avocados regularly won’t make you fat. “The monounsaturated fats in avocados are what give it the creamy texture that make it such a good replacement for butter, margarine or mayonnaise,” says Michelle W. Book., the in-house nutritionist at the Canadian Health Food Association.

    Making Your Own Soy Milk Is (Much) Easier Than You Think

    Creamy, high-protein soy milk is a staple in Asia, where estimates peg 95% of the population as lactose-intolerant. Related: Non-Dairy Milks: Which to Make, Which to Buy Since soy milk is calcium-rich and contains the equivalent amount of protein as cow’s milk, it’s regarded as the closest match to dairy. While cow’s milk is very sweet, thanks to lactose (milk sugar), soy milk is more savory in flavor, with very subtle bean-y notes. To fortify, add calcium tablets or protein powder to the finished soy milk, then blend.

    White Wine Can Be Good For You, Too

    We’ve heard plenty about the (often exaggerated) benefits of red wine. In a study published this week in the Annals of Internal Medicine, researchers randomly assigned 224 people with Type 2 diabetes (who didn’t drink alcohol before the study) to either drink red wine, white wine, or water with dinner for two years. Related: 30 Photos Of Unretouched Butts, In Case You Forgot What They Really Look Like The team found that, as you may have expected, red wine drinkers saw the most striking improvements in things like cholesterol levels and certain indicators of their control of lipids and glucose. For women, theNational Institutes of Health recommends no more than a single drink per day (sigh).  Related: 25 Real Photos Of Women’s Breasts (NSFW) And while most alcohol-related hype has focused on red wine, actual research hasn’t always been so selective.
