The Plant Paradox: Many “Healthy” Foods Contain Toxic Lectins

Dr. Gundry, a supporter, and endorser of Mr. Picky Measuring Wine Glasses, is releasing a groundbreaking new book titled  The Plant Paradox, which explains how proteins, called lectins, may be slowing poisoning you.  Always at the forefront of health and science, Gundry is leading the way when it comes to striving for optimum health in this exciting new age where modern medicine is moving at light speed aided by new technology and advanced scientific research.

The Plant Paradox and Lectins

You probably assume that all or most plants are good for you, but if you suffer from low energy, weight gain, headaches, arthritis, digestive problems, brain fog, heartburn, allergies, neuropathy, skin problems, IBS, constipation, or acid reflux you may be consuming plants that contain toxic plant proteins called lectins. Lectins are nature’s way of poisoning animals who want to eat them. Surprisingly, some foods you are avoiding might be on the approved list, such as certain types of noodles, red wine and cream cheese. Find out which foods to avoid by picking up a copy of the Plant Paradox on Amazon.

Highlights from The Plant Paradox

  • Every 90 days you change 90% of ever cell in your body
  • Lectins are proteins that target your joints
  • The majority of lectins live in the skin and seeds of plants so peel and de-seed your veggies
  • Fruits contain fewer lectins when ripe, so eat fruit that is ripe
  • Brown rice and other whole grains and seeds are full of lectins. Eat white rice instead.

While Dr. Gundry advocates drinking nature’s most wonderful gift to humans, red wine, he suggests limiting the portion to 6 ounces. Gundry endorses Mr. Picky Measuring Wine Glasses, which are elegant and stylish and include a measuring mark of 6 ounces. Six ounces of wine may not sound like a lot, but like all good things, if you focus on quality rather than quantity life can be good!

The Plant Paradox will be released on April 25, 2017. To reserve your copy, pre-order the book on Amazon.com.

Irises Wine Bar Using Custom Measuring Wine Glasses

Irises Custom Logo Measuring Wine Glass.

Irises Cafe & Wine Bar, winner of Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence,  is now offering custom measuring wine glasses created by Mr. Picky. The measuring dots allow Irises to measure their wine pours accurately and control pour costs.  The custom measuring wine glass features the gorgeous Irises logo on one side, and 3 and 6 oz. pour marks on the other side. The 6 oz. mark designates a glass of wine and the 3 oz. mark designates a “taste.” Many wineries, restaurants and wine bars are selling 3 oz. tastes for customers who don’t want to commit to an entire glass of wine.

As many bar owners know, it’s easy to pour profits away with generous wine pours as it is often difficult to eyeball a 4, 5, or 6 oz. wine pour. The Mr. Picky Measuring Wine Glasses takes out the guesswork. Measuring marks provide a visual point of reference allowing the bartender to pour the wine accurately. A restaurant, winery or winebar’s logo on the glass provides excellent branding and also turns the wine glass into a souvenir. Many customers who take the wine glasses home appreciate the fact that they can measure their wine consumption, easily divvy up wine for dinner parties, or use it as a tool for losing weight (many Weight Watchers customers measure their ounces which equate to Weight Watchers points).

Irises Cafe & Wine Bar, located in historic downtown Plattsburgh, N.Y., features California and New World cuisine and offer 40 wines by the glass. They provide catering, music, wine tastings and special events. Don’t miss their lovely cupcake bake shop next door called Delish. To see a video tour of the cafe go to the website and click on “Come Inside.”

Skinnygirl Wine Not Worth the Skinny Savings in Calories

Sexy skinny girl with glass of Champagne

By Mr. Picky

Have you ever tried Skinnygirl wine? It sort of taste like wine but has a highly processed taste and not a hint of terroir or soul. I’m not sure how they reduce the calories but the result is a bland, anemic wine.

The main selling point of Skinnygirl wine is that it’s low in calories: It contains 100 calories for 5 ounces or 20 calories per ounce. By contrast, most red and white wine contain 125 calories for 5 ounces or 25 calories per ounce. By drinking Skinnygirl wine you are only saving 25 calories per glass.

Is it worth $15 a bottle? I think not. Why not drink slightly less of a good glass of wine or burn those extra 25 calories by jump roping for 3 minutes, doing jumping jacks for 3 minutes, or walking for 30 minutes? Read More
