Yes, You CAN Learn to Love Salt Less!

Meet your taste buds. You have about 10,000, mostly concentrated on the top of your tongue. They can detect five basic tastes: sweet, sour and salty, bitter plus the more recently recognised umami. Your taste buds play a key role in helping you enjoy or stay away from certain foods which can be a problem when it comes to very fatty, sugary or salty foods. We've all heard of the “sweet tooth”, but some people have a “salty tooth” tooth as well. In fact, studies show that people with high blood pressure tend to have a preference for saltier foods, which is concerning as high salt intake is a known risk factor for high blood pressure and stroke. You don't have to follow your tastebuds though! You can train them to help you eat more healthily. Here's how.

The Truth About Sustainable Seafood: Farmed vs. Wild Fish

Most health and nutrition experts agree that Americans should increase their consumption of fish. Fish are high in protein and low in calories, cholesterol and saturated fat. Some varieties also are excellent sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which have been found to decrease the risk of heart disease and stroke. Because of these health benefits, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2015 recommended that adults eat 8 ounces of fish a week. Americans currently eat only half that amount. But which is better – farmed or wild fish?

How To Reduce Food Waste

Let's talk about food waste. Every year between 30-40% of food in the U.S. goes to waste as it makes its way through the supply chain—that’s equivalent to two out of five bags of groceries never making it onto your plate. Unbelievable, right? Especially because consumers don't even realize they're doing it a lot of the time. But those random slices of bread and eggs that are a bit past their expiration date add up. Then consider this - food production uses 10% of our total energy budget, 50% of our land and a whopping 80% of all freshwater consumed. In fact, producing the food consumers throw away generates more greenhouse gases than most entire countries do. So as consumers we are not just being wasteful, we're hurting our environment too!
