    18 May 2015 | 11:52 pm
    Honey is an all-natural food nicknamed Nature’s Sweetener. Humans have likely been eating it for tens, if not hundreds of thousands of years. And not only for its sweet flavour, but for its medicinal properties too. Sounds like something we should be eating more of right? Yet when you break it right down, honey is essentially sugar. We know that a high sugar diet is bad for you, which is why many consider honey unhealthy. So is honey good for us or not? Perhaps more importantly… Can diabetics eat honey?

  • Obesity, mood disorders increase peripartum cardiomyopathy risk

    23 May 2015 | 5:19 am
    Anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder doubles the risk of peripartum cardiomyopathy during childbirth, while obesity leads to a 1.7-fold increase, researchers report. Women with common pregnancy-related symptoms such as shortness of breath and leg swelling plus five PPCM risk factors could benefit from screening, the experts say.
  • Raising a glass to the holidays: Research finds extra alcohol sold, consumed on holidays

    21 May 2015 | 6:06 pm
    Asking people about what they drink on holidays and other special occasions shows we drink around the equivalent of 12 million more bottles of wine a week than we previously thought in England. Previous surveys on alcohol consumption have not accounted for all the alcohol that is sold. This research appears to have found many of these 'missing units.'
  • Obese teens' brains unusually susceptible to food commercials, study finds

    21 May 2015 | 11:41 am
    TV food commercials disproportionately stimulate the brains of overweight teenagers, including the regions that control pleasure, taste and -- most surprisingly -- the mouth, suggesting they mentally simulate unhealthy eating habits that make it difficult to lose weight later in life.
  • Thunder god vine used in traditional Chinese medicine is a potential obesity treatment

    21 May 2015 | 10:36 am
    An extract from the thunder god vine, which has a long history of use in traditional Chinese medicine, reduces food intake and causes up to a 45 percent decrease in body weight in obese mice. The weight-loss compound, called Celastrol, produces its potent effects by enhancing the action of an appetite-suppressing hormone called leptin. The findings are an early indicator that Celastrol could be developed into a drug for the treatment of obesity.
  • Snacking on protein can improve appetite control, diet quality in teens

    21 May 2015 | 9:10 am
    Although eating high-protein, afternoon snacks can aid appetite control in adults, little information exists to guide parents on what types of snacks might benefit their adolescent children. Now, researchers have found that afternoon snacking, particularly on high-protein-soy foods, reduces afternoon appetite, delays subsequent eating and reduces unhealthy evening snacking in teenagers.

    Endo International Plc said it would buy Par Pharmaceutical Holdings Inc from private-equity firm TPG Capital for about $8 billion, including debt, to become a top-five generic drugmaker by sales in the United States. Par Pharma was acquired by TPG for $1.9 billion (1.2 billion pounds) in 2012 and since then has shifted focus to make generics that are difficult to make and administer. The deal will give Endo five manufacturing plants and about 100 generic drugs such as Par Pharma's two bestsellers, a copy of AstraZeneca's Crohn's disease treatment, Entocort, and one of GlaxoSmithKline's…

These islands, ten miles off the north coast of Scotland, have been inhabited for at least 8,500 years. First by Mesolithic and Neolithic tribes… then by the Picts… then invaded and annexed by Norway in 875… then re-annexed to the Scottish Crown in 1472.

    This Sunday is Mother's Day. I want to take a moment to thank my mother for everything that she has done for me and continues to do for me every day. But I want to especially thank my mom this year for teaching me to try new foods. Growing up, I ate so many foods that many of my friends never heard of. I was lucky that my mom taught me to try all foods and enjoy the natural, healthy taste and nutrition that each food brings. I grew up with quinoa before it was the rave.

    A new study* has been released that tell us we need more positive healthy marketing messages about healthy beverages. Researchers at the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity found parents are not really sure what makes a healthy beverage. Part of the problem seems to be the labeling and marketing messages found on beverages. Most parents know that soda is not part of a healthy diet. They get that. They also know milk and water are healthy drinks. What is confusing is the flavored drinks, sports drinks, fruit juices. These drinks tend to be high in sugar and calories and not much else. But…

      Nigel Slater's simple stuff is where he excels, I reckon, and his latest book, Eat, is a welcome return to form. I've made his Root vegetable tangle 5 times in as many nights, varying the vegetables and, in the interests of getting things to the table faster, using a mandoline rather than a peeler. The rosemary and onion are essential; so is the large quantity of olive oil, I'm afraid, and the pepitas are absolutely non-negotiable but otherwise, play. I like it with a poached duck's egg (god, and how) as much as I like it with pan-fried tempeh or a spoonful of yoghurt.

There's a tried-and-true thing going on with her writing that I feel really drawn to, tried-and-true 'cause Roden recorded recipes from (mostly) women in communities that cook a lot. Many reviews on Amazon criticise the book for being light-on for Ashkenazi recipes, for being too heavy on the Sephardic food, but this is a plus, especially for…

    20 May 2015 | 8:43 am
    Osteoporosis affects more men than prostate cancer. In a large study of smokers, men were more likely than women to have osteoporosis and fractures of their vertebrae. Smoking history and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) were independent risk factors for low bone density among both men and women. Researchers say screening for low vBMD by using QCT in men and women who are smokers will increase opportunities to identify and treat osteoporosis in this at-risk population.

By 'listening' to the pressure differences created by the acoustic waves, researchers can reconstruct and visualize the inner structures of complex objects such as the brain and cardiovascular systems. Diagnosing cancer with photoacoustic imaging requires contrast agents that deeply penetrate tissue and selectively bind to malignant cells.

It was one of those hot and hazy days where the air is stale and you feel slimy even after you’ve just come out of the shower. (The Challenge of) Feeling Good in a Bathing Suit “No thanks,” she replied. “I just can’t be seen in public in a bathing suit.” I shrugged my shoulders and drove off.

    Spinning classes have the power to elicit feelings of misery and shame, as well as primal rage aimed at the instructor – which is why I haven’t been on a spinning bike in years. However, a colleague asked if I would participate in a spinathon fundraiser for a local charity. Now, riding a stationary bike for two hours is on my ‘least favorite things to do’ list. I’m a mountain biker at heart so indoor cycling – not my thang. But hey, it was for a good cause so I thought “why not? It could be good spring training for my cycling season”.

    My family takes cod liver oil daily, as a sort of insurance policy (you can read more about why we take cod liver oil daily here as well as other whole food supplements we take).  As my family has traveled the path of traditional foods, we’ve incorporated cod liver oil, bone broth and fermented foods into our daily routine, for our better health.  It’s second nature now. Cod liver oil is particularly high in omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA.  These fragile fatty acids help to support general health in many ways, but seem to be particularly supportive of emotional well-being…

While most dishes, like pasta (hold the clam sauce, please), truly appealed to my youthful tastes, others required a more sophisticated palate. Pan-fried smelt … no thank you.

    We all know about the book and movie with “shades of grey” in the title. That phrase may conjure up certain images in your head, but it got me thinking about all the shades of grey in nutrition. People frequently speak about food in absolutes – this food is bad, or this diet is best. Well, it’s not that simple: Nutrition is not always so black or white. To me, shades of grey means there’s a little bit of right and wrong. With so many of today’s food fads, popular diets and nutrition claims there’s typically a nugget of truth.

This does not mean turning bargain food shopping into a second hobby. We are all overworked, overstressed, and overtaxed. Most of us don’t have time to scrupulously compare store prices or cut coupons. Even so, there are ways of making choices that work within our resources. Here are 10…

What’s really going sometimes feels like the frog in the pot metaphor. If you drop a frog in a pot of boiling water, it will of course frantically try to clamber out. But if you place it gently in a pot of tepid water and turn the heat on low, it will float there quite placidly. As the water gradually heats up, the frog will sink into a tranquil stupor, exactly like one of us in a hot bath,…

    Eating beyond full takes us into the vague place where food is no longer about nourishment or need. We enter the milieu of wants and desires and usually it is not food we are wanting or desiring. To be physically satisfied by our food is a wonderful feeling -one that allows us to enjoy a variety of foods with or with out the company of others. When we learn to eat to satiety and then stop, we can trust ourselves with any type of food or in any type of situation –celebratory or not– for we know from experience that we stop when we are physically full.

    21 May 2015 | 6:31 am
    With my recent post about health guidelines, I was also reflecting on how I'm a rule follower and a recipe user for the most part - which is one reason I joined the monthly Recipe ReDux challenge in the first place - to challenge myself in the kitchen. This month's challenge was: DIY Kitchen Essentials - What favorite kitchen staples do you now make from scratch – but in the past you purchased? Show us your best DIY recipe for keeping cupboards, fridge or freezer stocked with healthy basics. Think homemade frozen waffles, salad dressing, broth or other kitchen essentials.I had quite a few…

    17 May 2015 | 8:09 pm
    As stated previously, maternity leave and the transition to spending more time as a mom means that I have lots of blog post ideas, yet don't get around to writing often. I can't complain though, I am really enjoying my time away from technology and screens to watch my little one grow! I do spend time on social media for work (and pleasure) so it's a bit of an internal struggle for me and I continue to work on not comparing myself to the assumptions I have of others based on their social media presence. I am in my 30s and still trying to figure out my priorities and how to live my best life.I…

    With the most recent ReDux challenge on my mind, I started sifting through my cupboards. You might also be in a bit of a 'spring clean' mood/mode in your kitchen. I know my mom said she was working her way through a few things in her freezer. I took a look at my pantry and spices. I often look for recipe inspiration in my own kitchen and then perhaps google ingredients to see what I can try together. It's not only a great way to clean, but also to help with meal planning, and budgeting.Source: HealthLineI found some freekeh (young green wheat; an ancient grain) in my cupboard and decided to…

    I didn't find time for last month's Cook Once, Eat Twice recipe challenge, oddly enough we made what I was planning one evening a little later. I was thinking leftover baked potatoes as a type of one-pot hash or a scramble, which my husband made one night since it's such a quick meal to throw together. Since I now have a five month old on my hands, things that are quick or make leftovers are still key. I was also working on a few recipes for an upcoming young athlete demo when I came up with this one.I get my chance to blog and create in the kitchen once the little one goes to bed at night,…

  • Jello Pudding: Healthy and Homemade (plus video how-to)

    Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist
    22 May 2015 | 6:09 am
    Jello pudding made with unprocessed ingredients is an easy, fast and yummy treat that is the perfect dish to take to cookouts and potlucks. It pleases junk food and healthfood fans alike. People sometimes get a puzzled look on their faces when I suggest jello as a healthy treat for kids. This is understandable, because boxed jello pudding from the store, which is almost without exception the type of jello anybody sees anymore, is one of the nastiest, most artificial concoctions on supermarket shelves. I literally cringe anytime I see an adult serving this frankenfood to a child. (...)Read…

    Have you ever had an opportunity that you knew would be life changing and would probably never come around again? Even if it was a little inconvenient to make it work, did you go for it anyway? I had an opportunity like that years ago after I finished graduate school. I had a couple months off and a few thousand dollars in the bank before I started my full-time career in IT consulting. An opportunity to go to Japan and China with my college best friend suddenly presented itself, and while it was a little tricky to pull off, I made my plane reservations and went for it. My parents were…
  • All Purpose Comfrey Salve Recipe

    Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist
    18 May 2015 | 10:46 am
    When it comes to salves, I much prefer one that will work for nearly all situations and challenges the skin may encounter. This simplifies things considerably and means the kids know exactly what to grab and use when they have a skin problem as opposed to a medicine cabinet full of tubes and jars that they need to fish through to find the right one. A couple of years ago, I discovered a comfrey salve that functions in this manner. I originally purchased it from a local herbalist-in-training and over time, have found it to be the most effective salve I have ever tried. My family and I have…
  • The Toxic Effects of Water Birth on Mom and Baby

    Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist
    14 May 2015 | 6:36 am
    Water birth has become an established practice in parts of the United States where midwifery is strong and natural childbirth is popular. It is also gaining momentum in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Germany. Advocates of water birth say that it is safe, offering Mom drug free pain relief and better oxygenation during labor and a calm, peaceful entrance into the world for baby as the warm water simulates the intrauterine environment. In addition, the umbilical cord pulsates longer after a water birth, helping to remove damaged red blood cells from the baby’s…
  • Family Doesn’t Get Your Real Food Habit? Here’s Why

    Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist
    12 May 2015 | 9:53 am
    One of the most common questions I receive by email relates to the lack of acceptance of friends and family, even a spouse, regarding the decision to eat Real Food or otherwise make healthy changes in the home. The abandonment of margarine, Egg Beaters, pasteurized dairy, and GMO and additive-ridden processed foods can trigger a lot of debate, discussion, and stress within the home environment at first. This pushback is to be expected and is totally normal. You should in no way be confused, distracted, discouraged, distressed, or derailed by this type of reaction. Most importantly, never…

  • Pasta Salad with Wild Blueberries

    Danielle Omar
    22 May 2015 | 8:21 am
    This pasta salad is sure to please all summer long. It’s antioxidant rich, high in fiber, super flavorful, and so pretty to look at! I love cold pasta, especially when the weather gets warmer. It’s the perfect way to highlight the best of what spring and summer has to offer. For this pasta salad I used English peas from Trader Joe’s and my favorite microgreens from Whole Foods. I also snuck in a ton of fiber by using a whole grain Orecchiette. The Orecchiette was a perfect fit because the English peas and Wild Blueberries naturally fall right into the “little ears” of the…

    These light and airy Peanut Butter and Banana pancakes are both creamy and delicious with a just a hint of ginger. The perfect way to start any day! I made these peanut butter banana pancakes using cereal. As you may know, I’m not a huge fan of boxed cereal. Unless it’s the kind I make myself, cereal is just not my bag. However, my reason why is likely not what you think. I created this recipe while visiting the General Mills offices in Minneapolis. It was an Dietitian blogger event. I actually enjoy visiting brands. I learn a lot about their business practices, meet their employees, and…

She’s my best best friend for over 35 years and Macular Degeneration has affected her life first-hand. Here’s her story. When I started seeing small dark spots I thought it was the beginning of the end for my sight. I’ve always worried about my eyes. I constantly look for changes in my vision and get exams like clockwork. What’s strange is that I’m not a worrier. I’m pretty good at taking what life dishes out and rolling with it.

    Creamy banana pudding between layers of delicious chia pudding sprinkled with an almond crumb topping — perfect for a satisfying breakfast, yummy afternoon snack or anytime dessert! This post is part of the California Almonds #CrunchOn campaign. As a member of the Healthy Aperture Blogger Network, I was compensated for my time and received free samples for recipe testing. Almonds are a staple in our house. Raw almonds, slivered almonds, almond butter, almond flour, almond milk — you name it, we are using it one way or another.

  • Chopped Quinoa Salad with Cranberries

    Danielle Omar
    4 May 2015 | 8:07 am
    Yes, another quinoa salad. Once I start making them I just can’t stop. This one is so tasty. I followed my simple formula for quinoa salad making and it worked like a charm. This time I used dried cranberries for an antioxidant boost and instead of a nut or seed, I added my freshly sprouted mung beans for the crunch. It’s so light and refreshing, this batch did not last long! If you’re thinking right now, I wish I liked quinoa it might be how you’re cooking it. I wasn’t a huge fan of quinoa until I started cooking it correctly and eating it cold as a salad. The…

  • 10 Reminders Any Woman on a Wellness Journey Needs to Remember About Food

    cdobbas
    13 May 2015 | 2:22 pm
    When I was deep in my body-shaming days, I was obsessed with women’s mags and online articles, touting the latest cellulite-busting, waist-whittling, six-pack designing diets. And celeb rags talking about their weight loss and hot-bod secrets? I ate them up, like thick butter-drenched slices of French bread … just like a carb-craving (hungry) woman … after swearing off bread for a week.   My dysfunctionally functional relationship with food and my body was – well – one of the reasons I got into the nutrition field. I wanted to learn what (in the world) was really…

      Do you have doubts and fears? Have you ever failed? Has the thought, “Am I good enough?” ever crossed your mind? YES? Good. That means you’re trying. That you’re showing up. That you’re putting yourself out there. That also means that you’re a human being having a human experience. More importantly … it means you’re not alone.   Life is our biggest teacher. I always remind my clients that “the work” really happens in-between our sessions. When the totally unexpected happens. When the uncomfortable occurs.

        As early as childhood, we’re taught to focus on the outcome. Go after the main prize. Get that college degree. Score our dream job. Land the perfect partner. Birth the cutest babies. Have the perfect body. Cultivate the best life… As I write this list, I already feel exhausted… We’re repeatedly reinforced to go after “it.” To chase the dream, to meet the expectation. And when one dream comes to fruition, we tackle another. We chase more perfection.   But what would happen, if it wasn’t like this? What would happen if we said, “No” ? In truth, there’s…
  • Are You Exercising the Wrong Way?

        It was dark out. I was exhausted. And was just about to step off the train from a 12-plus hour day. I so badly, just wanted to go home, rest, eat, and call it a day. But, I had packed my gym bag that morning and there it was, hanging over my shoulder, nagging me to workout.   The thoughts raced through my mind: The only workout you ever regret is the one that never happened. No pain, no gain. Excuses are for quitters. So, instead of going right, I went left when I got off the train … to the gym. I worked out for an hour, came home angry because I had had no downtime (and…
  • Is Fear What’s Really Blocking You? Choosing Love Over Fear

      I talk about “choosing love over fear” a lot. In fact, these words make up one of my favorite daily mantras: I choose to let love in and fear out. It wasn’t always like this though. Before I was ready to dig deep and really look at (or even be aware of) how my inner world shaped my outer world, I would have thought you were a little nutty, if you told me to “choose love over fear.” Today, however, choosing love over fear is an integral (grounding) part of my day on a moment-to-moment basis – in all areas of my life – finances, relationships, business, self-kindness ……

But maybe you’ve tried it before and growing a garden wasn’t as easy as it seemed. In actuality, gardening takes more than natural talent; it takes hard work, dedication and research. This last part is especially important when you find that no matter how hard you try, your garden just won’t grow. In such instances it may be something you’re doing wrong or it may have nothing to do with anything you’ve done. Taking steps to get to the…

    Kate Wilson

    It’s hard to believe that cutting animal products from your diet doesn’t always mean that you’re cutting your food budget, too. Good fruits and vegetables often cost a higher price, and convenient, pre-made meals that you can grab on-the-go are especially more expensive than their counterparts that include animal products. Of course, this shouldn’t make you shy away from going vegan; in fact, the lifestyle boasts a slew of health benefits, including clearer skin and more restful sleep. Better yet, you’ll find that there are plenty of ways to eat a vegan diet without breaking the…

As humans I don’t think we ever take time to have that LITTLE amount of sensory stimulation around us. Totally dark, no sound, can’t feel anything, only our breathing. Even when we meditate we can still feel discomfort, feel our bodies, and hear sounds around us. This is next level quiet.   This was my 2nd…

You’re probably wondering – how can I possibly list 3 things that will make people healthier no matter what? No matter if you’re vegetarian, vegan, paleo, gluten-free, or you don’t care about diet at all…whether you’re sick or well or somewhere in between? I feel very strongly about these 3 things. For everyone. No matter who…

      At a wine bar, it‘s common to order a cheese plate that comes with a variety of cheese, nuts, and dried fruit.  That  means a lot of fat, calories, and sugar — clocking in at around 650 calories a serving in a normal cheese plate. It’s nice to pair delicious cheese with wine, but there are lower calorie alternatives that can also pair nicely with your wine selection.

  • What To Do When Your Mouth Is On Fire From Red Hot Chili Peppers

    Penny Klatell, PhD, RN
    5 May 2015 | 6:42 pm
    I was in a restaurant that specializes in chili – hot, hotter, and hottest.  Four large thirty-something guys were sitting at the table next to mine. One guy ordered, “hottest,” with an “I can handle it, no problem” look on his face. Shortly after this big, burly guy dug into his chili he was sitting glassy eyed, rivulets of sweat dripping off of his bald head, practically unable to speak.  The waitress, obviously having seen this happen before, came running over with a glass of milk with orders to “drink up.” Have you ever had a similar reaction to very spicy food — maybe…

Perhaps you very overly brave and ordered the five alarm chili at your local Tex-Mex place. It happens — but what do you do?  You can burn the heck out of everyone’s mouth, sweat profusely, toss the whole dish into the garbage, feed the compost pile, or maybe somehow salvage what you’ve made. There are those of you who routinely look for the spiciest food around and are probably thinking – so what’s the problem?  But, for…

This week, let's discuss your bedroom habits and surmise how to make your time between the sheets a superior sleeping experience.Many things impact sleep, including the stresses of life like World hunger, making your rent or mortgage, picking a filter on Instagram, Facebook-stalking an ex, and watching the latest Game of Thrones or Downton Abbey.Where for art thou point?62% of parents and 45% of kids have a TV in their…
  • The Slippery Slope of Sleeplessness pt I

    22 Apr 2015 | 9:35 am
    Remember as a kid you wanted to stay up all night? If you've babysat a kid lately and heard the bedtime protest, maybe you've thought to yourself... Geez, I'll go to bed and you can stay up! Sleep is something that eludes many adults. It's stressful being a grown up and dealing with bills, work and Instagram. But children are starting to share in our grown up sleep-deficiency. Why is this a problem? Let us count the ways...First up, it's worth knowing how much sleep you actually need:Infants - 12-17 hoursToddlers - 11-14 hoursPreschoolers - 10-13 hoursSchool age - 9-11 hoursTeens - 8-10…
  • Got Milk for Your Aging Brain?

    8 Apr 2015 | 10:26 am
    In articles gone by, we've discussed at length kids and milk, kids not drinking milk, parents forcing kids to drink milk, inventive ways for kids to eat dairy other than milk, and the importance of parents setting an example by actually drinking milk. It's about time we get grandma and grandpa on the bandwagon. Milk consumption in oldies is actually important too, and for more than just bones.A new study finds milk consumption in older adults is linked to higher levels of glutathione in the brain. What is glutathione, you ask?Well, it has a couple of functions, but for…
  • How to Police Pint-Sized Pie Holes

    25 Mar 2015 | 12:43 pm
    When it comes to kids and food, there are often two extremes: The militant, health freak parents... Or the exact opposite. The media publicised recent research showing pint-sized pie holes were pigging out on plentiful portions of pizza-pies. Should we let kids be kids: have their pizza and eat it too, or is there perhaps a more palatable plan? The way children eat and view food is strongly tied to the attitudes and behaviours of their parents (more on that here, here, and here). If daddy sits down to dinner and says "green beans, yuck..." and then turns to little Tommy and says "eat your…

  • Artificial Sweeteners Can Promote Glucose Intolerance

    Science For Fitness
    27 Apr 2015 | 9:56 am
    The movement away from sugar and towards non-caloric artificial sweeteners (NAS), began over a century ago after recognizing that 1) large amounts of calories could lead to obesity and likely a variety of other health problems, and 2) that large amounts of sugar adversely affected hormone levels (in particular insulin), which could also lead to obesity and a variety of other health problems. Thus, consumers looked to NAS as a way to continue to eat sweet foods and beverages while protecting their health. However, research is beginning to indicate that NAS may not be as harmless as we had…

  • Arguments Against the Paleo Diet? Not What You’d Hope For

    Sebastijan Veselic
    7 May 2015 | 6:24 am
    The paleo diet, as it’s often called, is becoming increasingly popular throughout the world. In the past few decades, it has gained a notorious following, known for the mantra how we should eat like our ancestors have eaten in the past. At the same time, a steady flow of people has argued that the paleo is unfeasible, mostly because we don’t know what exactly even was on their food plate. In this article I explore some of these notions. I’d like to start by writing that the paleo diet has been shown to work for a short time-frame, improving various health bio-markers which are…
  • Is Fiber Really That Healthy?

    Fiber is a marketing buzzword, loved by advertising teams. However, did you ever ask yourself whether there is any truth to this matter? I mean, if a new version of a product has 10% more fiber – then it has to be good for you, right? Article guide: What is fiber? Health benefits Cholesterol Glycemic control Weight loss No, this isn’t necessarily the case. Admittedly, many people would benefit from an increased intake of fiber, at least if they’re in the majority who are consuming a diet high in refined carbohydrates and trans and saturated fats, also known as the Standard American…
  • Why Is Impulsivity Important For Obesity And Why We Should Be Aware Of It

    Sebastijan Veselic
    7 May 2015 | 5:57 am
    Everybody has a different attitude towards food. Some experience (extreme) pleasure when they’re presented with particularly appetizing food, while others couldn’t care less. This reaction towards appetizing food, together with a personality trait called impulsivity, are two factors with (probably) huge implications in the obesity crisis. A few decades ago, when the amount of processed food was lower and food didn’t accompany us on every step, people who were impulsive had less to worry about. When you don’t have a certain food item available, it’s also less…

Researchers from the University of Hildesheim in Germany were investigating whether there were different rates of mental disorders in people who were either omnivores, vegetarians, or partial vegetarians.

One of my most favorite ways to prepare birds is through a brine and smoked. The flavor of smoked chicken is incredible and the meat stays ridiculously tender and juicy. As you can see in the photos, the technique used is a reverse spatchcock. Why do this? Great question – it helps the smoked chicken cook quicker as well as more evenly. If you have a sharp set of kitchen shears, this will be a snap.  This is like the…

    This unbelievably refreshing kiwi spinach smoothie is my favorite breakfast or snack on a hot sunny day. It immediately cools you off and the balance of sweet and sour flavors is just perfect. You might have noticed I’m a bit crazy about green smoothies. During the warmer part of the year, I hardly have anything else for breakfast (the occasional chia pudding or a healthy dessert-like breakfast being the only exceptions). They just fill you with so much energy and make you feel simply amazing. It must be the insane amount of vitamins and minerals. And if you supercharge your green…
  • Steamed Asparagus With Creamy Cheeze Sauce

    WIN-WIN FOOD
    14 May 2015 | 2:18 pm
    Bright green steamed asparagus, just enough to soften up a bit but still nicely crunchy and fresh, drowned in a rich creamy cheeze sauce is the perfect side dish for spring. Asparagus season is a big deal here in Germany. This time of the year, all grocery stores and farmers markets go crazy and offer asparagus of all kinds, colors and shapes. Even the restaurants seem to have a silent agreement to offer asparagus centered menus all over the country. Since there is no escaping this nationwide veggie madness anyway, I happily embraced it and created a lightened up steamed asparagus classic…

    Crispy and flaky shell filled with creamy, bright yellow custard laced with a bit of vanilla, cinnamon and a distinctive egg-like flavor. You won’t believe these healthy Portuguese custard tarts contain no eggs at all. Ever since I got to visit Lisbon this spring break, I couldn’t stop dreaming about their gorgeous looking pastries. These traditional, custard filled tarts were peeking through basically every café window and smelled so amazing that most tourists bought them by the dozen. Unfortunately, these beautiful desserts are made with fat laden puff pastry and filled with egg…

    14 May 2015 | 12:55 pm
    In December 2006, a groundbreaking paper was published in the journal Nature showing that the bacteria that live in the gastrointestinal tract are fundamentally different between thin people and obese people.1 Researchers showed that the microbiome of the gut — this is the types and amounts of bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract — can influence the amount of calories a person absorbs into the bloodstream.2 In other words, obese people have a microbiome that produces more calories than thin people. 2 Recent research has shown a similar difference between people with diabetes and those…

    How’s your digestive health lately? Any tummy aches? Has a medical professional ever prescribed an antibiotic for you? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you are certainly not alone. In the United States, 60 to 70 million people are affected by all classifications of digestive health issues. Many are also affected by intestinal discomfort while taking antibiotics. In 2010, healthcare providers prescribed 258 million courses of antibiotics. That means four out of every five Americans was given an order for antibiotics. And in 2013, the Center for Disease Control and…

    As one of the most important vitamins for healthy nervous system function, energy, and positive neurological function, vitamin B12 is pretty much vital. Most of us don’t give vitamin B12 a second thought, however.

This is too bad because vitamin B12 is an essential organic compound that is vital for our overall health and well-being and is definitely not one of the fundamental nutrients you want to go without.

    Avocados are a healthy, creamy, tasty food, whether they sit on top of a sandwich, an omelet or a salad — or become transformed into guacamole. Avocados balance hormones, contain beneficial fats, and feature over twenty vitamins and minerals. They are a uniquely high source of plant sterols, which is the part of the plant that corresponds to cholesterol in people.  Eating plant sterols has been proven to lower cholesterol and increase heart health in several research studies from sources like the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Another key benefit of avocados is their ability…

    Blue and purple colored berries are delicious treats that provide many health benefits, particularly for the eyes. These fruits get their colorings from one of the plant kingdom’s most powerful substances – anthocyanins. In one recent study, Japanese scientists in Tokyo studied the effects of black currant anthocyanins on work-induced computer eye problems and visual fatigue. With a dose of 50 milligrams of black currant, there was a significant increased ability of the eyes to adjust to darkness, as well as reduced eye strain and improvement in symptoms of eye fatigue or vision problems.
