Refreshing Summer Reading

Take a break from that 3-inch thick beach novel you’re halfway through and check out AICR’s “best-sellers” from the past year.

In the current issue of Cancer Research Update we’ve collected some of the most popular articles from AICR over the past year. If you missed them the first time around, here’s your chance to read about healthy grilling, chocolate, how much protein you need and others.

The record heat around the country has prompted plenty of warnings about the importance of staying dehydrated, so I think the HealthTalk feature about green tea is especially timely.

Read that piece to learn whether green tea helps with weight loss, but keep reading this blog post because we’ve got plenty of ideas for you to enjoy this refreshing beverage to help beat the summer heat.

In our recently completed New American Plate Challenge, we presented one challenge to participants to switch from sugary drinks to low or no-calorie beverages, including green tea. We called it “Bye Soda, Hi Tea.”

You can read the entire challenge here for lots of ways to “go green;” it also includes ideas about slowing down, relaxing and taking time for yourself. And there are links to recipes and more information at the end of the challenge.

Do you drink green tea? If so, share your favorite recipe.
