I stopped into my local vitamin store the other day, and my purchases (whole flax seed, fish oil tablets and raw cacao nibs) prompted a comment from the cashier. “What do you do with all of that?” he asked. We fell into a conversation about diet and nutrition and so on. He mentioned that he’d been having a hard time losing 20 pounds, and when I asked him to describe his nutritional regimen, he said he eats a lot of frozen, pre-made meals. And he wasn’t talking about the better-quality, healthy-food-store-type of meals that do tend to be more on the nutritious side. No. This poor guy eats packaged stuff laden with sodium, hydrogenated oils and who knows what else.

In your twenties, you’re battling the balance of a social life and the start of your career. Physically speaking, your body can handle the stress of late nights, non-stop work and lack of sleep…but only if you take good care of it. Starting a few healthy habits during these youthful years will pay off in the long-run.
April 7 marks the 65th anniversary of the World Health Organization (happy birthday!). It’s also the day people from all over the globe come together to celebrate World Health Day.
This year, the holiday’s focus is on healthy blood pressure. So in honor of this special occasion, here are a few heart-healthy tips to remember:
One question I’m frequently asked is how to go Paleo on a tight budget, when the unfortunate reality is that it’s far more economical to make poor food choices than to eat fresh produce and wild meats.

While I do agree with the concept, we still need to address the fact that for many it may feel as though there’s simply no wiggle room in the family’s food budget.
You may be familiar with a Mediterranean diet, which typically is rich in vegetables, fruit, beans, olive oil, nuts and fish. What do those foods offer your body? The veggies and fruit provide you with fiber, vitamins and minerals, while beans offer both fiber and protein. Olive oil and nuts are powerhouses of monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs), which are healthy unsaturated fats, sometimes referred to as “good fats.”
Have you resolved to lose weight in the new year – but seem to be stumbling? Wishing for a way to support weight loss safely? The latest studies indicate that eating more protein just may be your path to weight loss success.
Gluten-free diets have become increasingly popular in the past few years. Some folks turn to wheat-free diets for weight loss, while others use them to find relief from wheat or gluten allergies or food intolerances. Whatever your reason, we know that figuring out how to avoid gluten can be tricky. From your morning cereal to the bread in your lunchtime sandwich to your dinner pasta, gluten is one of the most common ingredients in the grocery store.
