I was thinking back to the talk Mark Sisson of Mark's Daily Apple gave at CFLA last year. He said a few things that stuck with me... and one of them was about drinking red wine. Someone asked him the question, Do you advocate red wine as something good for your health? His response gave me pause. He said, I drink a glass of red wine almost every night. It helps me to unwind from the day, relax, and enjoy my evening. Who is to say that the stress relief/benefit from that doesn't outweigh the glycemic load ramifications of alcohol and sugar in my bloodstream?
What are some of the things you eat or habits you may have, that might be slightly outside of recommended dietary or health guidelines, but that for you, provide a level of well being that is potentially more beneficial?
