Eradicating the Epidemic of Childhood Obesity

Childhood obesity has been called an epidemic and for good reason. In the past three decades, in the United States alone, childhood obesity rates have tripled. Nearly 1 in 5 school age children and young people (6 to 19 years) in the United States is now obese or overweight. That’s a huge increase! And it’s a huge risk to our children’s health and well-being.

Make Breakfast #1

Spring is in the air so you might be starting to get health-conscious in anticipation of summer and bathing suit season.

You’ve heard it said a million times but breakfast really is the most important meal of the day and there’s plenty of reason why.

Top Mind/Body Trends of 2019

These days we realize that being healthy is a mind + body experience, not an endeavor solely focused on food and exercise. While eating healthy and taking care of ourselves physically is essential, we also need to manage stress, sleep well, use tech responsibly in our lives, be mindful of what’s in products we use on our bodies (such as makeup, etc)., and so on. It can all seem a bit overwhelming at times, so we’re here to help you out with a look at some of the top mind & body trends of 2019.

Happy [Insert Food Holiday Here]!

We like holidays. Who doesn’t? But there are HOLIDAYS, and then there are holidays like “Wave All Your Fingers At Your Neighbor Day” (yeah, we’re not sure about that one either). The ones we really like though are the food holidays (of course!) and there are some great food-related holidays happening this month. Listen up, because you’ll definitely want to participate.

Souping vs. Juicing

Are you a fan of cleanses? If so, you're likely familiar with juicing - extracting juice from fruits & veggies using a juicer. Juice cleanses are often used to detox the body and kick-start bodily systems into optimal function, but there are some negatives. That's one of the reasons juicing is seemingly being replaced by souping. What is souping? It's essentially the same thing as juicing except you use soup instead. It helps detox your body, reduce inflammation, and increase circulation. Plus, there are various ways to do it. It's quickly becoming one of the most popular cleanses around. So, is it right for you? And how does it compare to juicing?

Not only are there an almost inconceivable number of diet plans out there (many of them simply trends best left alone), but changing how you eat often requires, well, changing how you eat – buying foods you've not purchased or haven't purchased as much of before, plus a whole lot more cooking than you may be used to (or have time for!).

How you shop, how you cook, even organizational skills can help in your quest for a healthy lifestyle!

The Delightful Frittata

If you're a fan of eggs, you might just be a fan of the frittata. What exactly is a frittata? The short answer is “an Italian dish made with fried beaten eggs, resembling a Spanish omelet” (thanks, Google dictionary!). The longer answer is a frittata is an egg-based Italian dish similar to the omelet, crustless quiche, and scrambled eggs that have ingredients like meat, cheese, or veggies. The word “frittata” loosely translates to “fried”. So, a somewhat fried absolutely delish quiche-like delight!

What to Eat Post-Workout

What you eat after a workout is almost as important as the workout itself. There are a lot of contradictory ideas out there about what you should eat post-workout too – “eat ALL the protein! No protein at all! Carbs are the enemy! No wait, they're you're friend! FAT IS BAD! Actually, put a tbsp. of butter in your coffee (yes, we're serious, it's a thing. Ew...)”. So, what should you believe? What are you supposed to eat after that will help boost weight-loss and keep your body healthy? We're here to let you know.
