Getting REAL: Whole Grains

Whole grains are an excellent source of nutrition, as they contain essential enzymes, iron, dietary fiber, vitamin E, and B-complex vitamins. Because the body absorbs grains slowly, they provide sustained and high-quality energy.

How to take the candy battle out of Halloween.

How to take the candy battle out of Halloween.

October 29, 2017

Candy doesn't make a regular appearance in my household. Most candy is filled with artificial colors/flavors/preservatives and excessive amounts of sugar. When I first had kids, I thought for sure that I would never let them eat traditional candy. While that may seem like a great "clean eating" objective, it's not realistic. Overly pushing healthy replacements for traditional candy on holidays like Halloween can actually have the opposite effect on your kids. I have followed these tips for the past 6 years and have taken the "candy battle" out of Halloween...

Are you meeting your daily recommendations?

Are you meeting your daily recommendations?

April 20, 2017

The USDA recommends we consume 2 ½ to 3 cups of vegetables and 1 ½ to 2 cups of fruits per day! This recommendation is for moderately active individuals. A greater daily intake might be used for those getting more exercise. A mentor once told me, “the goals that get measured, get met!” So let’s do some food tracking together, what did you eat yesterday? Did you meet the daily recommendation? If you have trouble enough imagining five cups of fruits and vegetables on a plate let alone getting around to eating it, you're in the majority! An article from Todays Dietitian reported on a 2015 national survey that 76% missed the daily intake recommendation for fruit and 87% missed the daily intake for vegetables. If only our nutritional needs could be graded on a bell curve!
It's Time For A Food Waste Intervention!

It's Time For A Food Waste Intervention!

April 09, 2017

Of all the moments along our personal food journey, possibly one of the most shared might depict a wide-eyed, leafy-greens enthusiast pairing their newly purchased hull of fresh produce with their latest refrigerator organization methods... For me, this scene is as futile and temporary as trying to organize the apps on my phone... The whole process has about a two week rebound before I realize I’ve got it all wrong and start over! Organizing my apps I write off as a pastime, but two weeks of neglecting my produce on the other hand has a  direct effect on my wallet! Those shelves once brimming with fresh produce, now hold waste formations with only a soggy resemblance to the freshly misted counterparts I brought home. Those cucumbers I purchased now hold mushy scab-cratered surprises and my box of spinach somehow resembles the random tangles of wet weed brought up by fishing line…it's not pretty!
