In today's news, a scientific study of an exceptionally long-lived area in Italy (Silanus) highlights healthy alternatives to salt herbs and spices beat salt , and sugar and caffeine continue to get a bad press. (Silanus is located on the sloping fringes of the Gennargentu Mountains in central Sardinia).
However I've recently discovered what an enjoyable drink Barley Cup is with one teaspoon of honey in it.
Honey has a much lower glycaemic index than sugar, in fact it is lower than refined carbohydrates such as white bread.
Seasoning one's meal with herbs and spices (Rosemary had a particular mention in today's article) and drinking non-caffeine beverages with honey makes sense to me.
Water is still the healthiest drink, but I fancy something more tasty, and suppose I'm not alone.
