With all the different diets and approaches to eating these days it's hard to know what to eat, it's also hard to know when to eat and it's even hard to know how to eat! Should I cook it? Blend it?... add to water and drink it!??
There is a lot of info out there to process, and for every study that says one thing there is another study refuting it.
