    Canola oil has a better omega-3:omega-6 fatty acid ratio. It also has less saturated fat. Of course, there may be some times when you would want more saturated fat, but a lot of people make a big...

    Yep. Walnuts have the best omega-3:omega-6 fatty acid ratio among nuts and seeds (and oils too, I think). I've heard you should soak and/or toast them before eating them though, as they contain...

    Safe Stretches for Chest

    Eating Protein Powder Plain

    Yep...I just dumped some into my mouth. About half a scoop... At first it was real dry, of course, but then it absorbed my saliva and formed a sort of "taffy" consistency and was pretty good,...
