There’s nothing quite like the aroma of peppermint, whether you’re chewing gum to refresh your breath or spraying a room fragrance to banish the odor of something you burnt (oops).
If you’ve never considered the power of peppermint before, we’re delighted to introduce you to some of its benefits.
“‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, dieters were wishing that they’d eaten less than a mouse.”
Maybe that’s not quite how the poem goes, but many of us, by Christmas, wish that we’d done better in staying on our diets. If you’re dreaming of sugar plums but want a slim waist as well, we’ve got the tips you need to avoid gaining weight this year.
What does it really mean to follow a kosher diet? In Hebrew, “kashrus,” from the root kosher (or “kasher”), means suitable and/or “pure”, thus ensuring fitness for consumption, according to the Badatz Igud Rabbonim KIR, which is one of the largest kosher certification organizations.
For those following kosher diet guidelines, finding what they need in the local grocery store can be a challenge. Many stores don’t have kosher sections, leaving shoppers to wander aimlessly up and down the aisles hoping to find what they need.
As we get closer to the winter holidays, many of us are making our shopping lists – and checking our bank accounts as well. What can you do if you want to save money while eating healthy? We’ve got the scoop on the answer: Buying in bulk.
Whether you’re stocking up for Thanksgiving or want to have a wealth of goodness for those after-school snacks year-round, here are some great deals in the bulk virtual aisle at Vitacost.
Tell me what you want, what you really, really want. We’ve all been there: You’re trying to read a book, or pet the cat, or clean the kitchen floor. And you can’t stop thinking about…fill in the blank.
For some people, it’s a cookie. Some long for potato chips, while others are ready to scream for ice cream or pudding. And here’s the problem with trying to substitute supposedly healthy foods, like carrots and celery, for those cravings: You can end up eating so much that you actually consume more calories than if you had just one serving of the real deal!
At Vitacost, we have one word for how we want you to feel about your autumn 2013: Awesome! And that means celebrating the essence of the season in the healthiest fall foods, from pumpkin to apples.
