  • National Nutrition Month: Go Further With Food

    by Paula Gallagher | March 7, 2018

    canned-tomatoesIt is National Nutrition Month and this year's theme "Go Further Food" was chosen because what you eat and how you eat can make a huge difference. Whether it's starting the day off right with a healthy breakfast or fueling before an athletic event, choosing the right foods can make you go further! The theme also has an environmental perspective. Preparing foods to go further at home and within the community can have a positive impact by helping reduce food loss and waste.

    So what can you do? Many Americans, when asked, put eating healthy and getting healthy at the top of their list of priorities. Read more

  • Dr. Mark Hyman's New Book: "Food. What the Heck Should I Eat?"

    This blog was written by Dr. Mark Hyman about his new book, Food. What the Heck Should I Eat? (Article reposted with permission from Dr. Mark Hyman.)

    food-what-the-heck-should-i-eatEating healthy is more confusing than ever. I’ve been studying nutrition for 35 years and found that even experts are confused by the science. If the people we look to for nutritional guidance keep changing their views, no wonder the rest of us are so overwhelmed!

    You know what I’m talking about. One day eggs are unhealthy, then the next day they are a miracle food. One year the government tells us to eat bread, pasta, and other carbohydrates as the foundation of our diet, and the next it tells us to cut carbs. The US Dietary Guidelines told us 35 years ago that all our health problems were derived from eating fat and recommended we eat fat “only sparingly.” Over three decades later, they suddenly learned fat wasn’t so bad for us.

    Then you’ve got the dogmatists who believe you must adhere 100% to a particular plan to be lean and healthy, whether that plan be vegan, Paleo, vegetarian, Mediterranean, raw food, ketogenic, high-fat, low-fat or omnivore. Read more

  • Healthy Snacking in the Summer

    by Paula Gallagher | June 28, 2017

    healthy-snacksThe school year has wound down around here, and that means that routine goes out the window. My kids go from 3 healthy meals and 2 snacks per day to continuous grazing, thanks to a mostly unscheduled summer. The problem is that this lack of schedule tends to lend itself to higher fat, higher sugar and less nutritious diet because the snacks my kids gravitate toward tend to be granola bars and freezies! So, although the summer is more free-flowing, to encourage healthy snacking, I find it important to have tasty and filling snacks ready to go. I plan ahead and make big batches, and freeze them, where appropriate. Read more
