Anyone who has been to a supermarket should easily decipher that one of the most profitable foods (based on variety alone) is the bagged chips category.  And it also doesn’t take a genius to figure out that 99% of them are not good for you.  From their high-calorie to their high-salt to their obscene fat content, these bagged chips are mostly garbage turned into food.

Having said that, the times they are a-changing and many chip purveyors have started offering some better options.  Here at Menos Malo, we are particularly fond of the new Tostitos Artisan Recipe chips, but you can’t really go wrong with Terra Original Exotic Vegetable Chips or Beanitos Black Bean Chipotle BBQ Chips or Food Should Taste Good Sweet Potato Tortilla Chips.


According to this article in hola.com it has once again been proven in yet another scientific study that the moderate consumption of beer or wine is good for your health.

In this particular study, they have identified that people will see benefits in their bones with moderate consumption.  However, the opposite is true with excessive consumption of alcohol.


One Glass of Wine or Beer Per Day

These bones don't have any excess alcohol in them.

Menos Malo Bottom Line: Enjoy a drink a day for strong bones, exceed that moderate amount on a daily basis and watch the same bones become brittle.  Your choice.
