Missed out on tweets from your favourite (and least favourite) celebs this week? Fear not. We’ve rounded up the smartest and silliest tweets from the rich and famous, plus our favourite tweets from Best Health’s followers.
Celebs got in on the debate about Prop 37, which would require labelling on Genetically Engineered Food in California. GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) are partially or fully banned in New Zealand, Japan, France, Madeira and Switzerland. Unfortunately, in Canada use of GMOs is widespread, with most of our canola oil, soy and corn being GM. Alicia Silverstone and Emily Deschanel both used their Twitter accounts to speak out against GMOs, encouraging people to vote ‘yes’ on prop 37.
Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr shared the secret to her killer bod: She is literally always working out. In one morning alone, she went for a hike, did some stair work and used resistance bands’and she managed to tweet while doing it.
Alicia Keys tweeted about the ‘scary thought’ of Mitt Romney being elected in the 2012 Presidential Election. She shared a video of her fellow celebs Eva Longoria, Kerry Washington and Scarlett Johansson, in which they talk about what will happen to women’s health if Romney is elected, including cuts to Planned Parenthood funding (including cancer screenings).
Best Health’s Twitter followers loved our idea to add pumpkin seeds to a meal for a protein boost‘and even kicked it up a notch with cayenne spiced seeds on a salad. We also asked our followers how they relax after work, and they gave us lots of good answers‘ranging from walks on the beach and plant-based meals to a nice glass of wine. We like the way they think!
