Who knew? This National Nutrition Month of March coincides with the weeks of Lent, when some people give up the food they crave. (And that’s good for the body.) We’ll talk about cravings – what they do to us, what they mean – two weeks from now.
Winding up Neat-o Nutrition month, we have a Quirky Quiz today! Enjoy!

C. Roundup by Monsanto
There you are at a neighborhood brunch, and the fruit looks delicious, but you don’t want to offend the hostess by asking if it’s organic. The safest fruit to put in your mouth is:

Back to the brunch. This week you’ve done Food Combining, lost two pounds, and you like the fact that you’re no longer sleepy after lunch. To continue your good combinations, at the brunch you decide to eat:
A. everything right now, the whole smorgasboard, what a party! And cheesecake, cheesecake!
B. just waffles and ham, with only a teaspoon of syrup.
C. either salad with ham OR salad, hummus and waffles, because you don’t want to eat animal proteins with carbs. (Right?) But you can go back for seconds.
OMG that brunch went on all day. Of course you drank several mimosas and ate everything, plus three flavors of gourmet cheesecake – you just don’t get that every day!

We have no answer key. But tell us how you did 😉
BONUS – I added this late to the post on acid-reducers and bentonite (toxic hangovers), so in case you missed it:
Natural hydrochloric acid (HCL) in the stomach is vital to digestion. HCL production slows down as we age (also if we don’t eat much meat), . Taking an HCL supplement helps us digest our nutrients better and even lose weight.
Try Betaine HCL 500mg – take it 20 min before the meal and it will boost your own HCL to function better again.
Or if you’re not keen on supplements, eat tomato products or vinegar with your meat for better digestion.
