Paleo? No Problem!

By now, even if you aren't ON this diet, you've heard of the Paleo diet. Right? The word “diet” here is actually misleading because eating Paleo is a lifestyle, something designed to make you look and feel your best. What exactly IS the Paleo diet? The paleo diet is a focus on eating natural, real food that is widely available with little or no processing. In other words, the paleo diet focuses on eating the way nature intended us to eat. That doesn't sound so bad, does it?

Diabetic Superfoods

If you have diabetes, you know how important how much and what type of carbohydrate foods you eat are for managing it. You know the balance between how much insulin is in your body and the carbohydrate you eat makes a difference in your blood glucose levels. But do you know what the power foods are for helping manage your diabetes? There's a wide variety but here's a few to try on for size.

Prepared Meal Service Qs & As

On Quality: Q:“You're shipping my meals, so what if something shows up broken or ripped and I can't use it? What then?”

Seniors and Appetite

It can be difficult for many people to see their aging family members and loved ones change over time. Seeing those changes and facing them begins with knowing what to look for and asking the right questions. One of the bigger challenges we face as we age is changes to our appetite. Loss of appetite in seniors isn't an uncommon thing.

But, as you know, eating well is vital for everyone at all ages. Your daily food choices can make an important difference in your health and in how you look and feel. Eating well gives you the nutrients needed to keep your muscles, bones, organs, and other parts of your body healthy. Eating well helps keep up your energy level, too.

Why Are We Addicted to Salt?

Salt – it makes your food so much more flavorful, but we also know that it's not necessarily good for us. In small pinches, salt is important for the body, because it is an electrolyte that helps balance fluids in the body. The problem is that salt also has a major impact on our heart and kidneys. Too much sodium makes it harder for the kidneys to eliminate the excess sodium, which may lead to an increase in blood volume. This can contribute to raising blood pressure to a dangerous degree.

How Meal Delivery is Cheaper Than Grocery Shopping

Life is busy, too busy sometimes. Busy enough that you don't have time to cook but more than that busy enough that you don't really even have time to go to the grocery store. Think about it – maybe you're a single parent whose just gone back to work after a long maternity leave, or a household with multiple kids with multiple activities that require you to chauffeur them around town on an increasingly hectic schedule or maybe you're a bit older and getting out just isn't as easy as it once used to be. What can you do? Sure, you could order take-out all the time but 1) that gets expensive and 2) (more important) it's terrible for your long-term health. OR you could try a meal delivery service that makes fresh, healthy meals with local ingredients. But wait?

Reheating Seafood? Really?

Have you ever heard this before? “The only thing worse than eggs when reheated? Fish. Just don't do it.” Guess what? Not true. It is true that fish is never going to be better than it was when you first cooked it. It is also true that it is very easy to ruin fish while reheating it. BUT not only is reheating frozen seafood perfectly safe but it can taste absolutely delicious (depending on who's prepared it), and it's simple to do.

First and foremost, there's our preferred method – the microwave oven! Faster heating time, no mess and no fuss.

Why do Americans Have Such a Poor Perception of Frozen Meals?

Frozen dinners are quick & easy to make on those nights when you get home late from work and are exhausted, or when your family's schedules are hectic and you just don't have time to cook. So why don't more people take advantage of frozen meals? Why do they get such a bad rep anyway? Not only are they simple to prepare but they can be nutritious AND delicious.

What to Count – Carbs or Calories?

So you're trying to be healthier in the new year – exercise more, sleep more soundly, eat better and lose weight – but you've already gotten stuck when it comes to the eating better and losing weight part. You know you have several options you can go with, amongst them portion control or watching carbs, so which is it? Which will provide the better value for you? It actually depends on which you find easier as both have proven to have benefits.
