Red Meat the Healthy Way

A diet high in red meat has been touted to either fatten your waistline and lead to heart disease, or to transform you into a leaner, healthier version of yourself. So what’s the skinny on eating red meat the healthy way? Beef, lamb, pork, and venison provide quality protein, B-vitamins, iron, and zinc. Depending on the cut, meat can be low in fat. When buying meat, pay attention to the source, cut, processing, and preparation method. Source Meat can be derived from grass-fed cattle that has been raised organically and not fed drugs or hormones. After slaughter, organic meats have not had any chemical preservatives added. Conventional meat comes from animals bred on factory farms and usually exposed to hormones. While the scientific jury continues to debate the...

Summer Irritants: Poison Ivy

We all love spending time outdoors when the weather is warm and sunny. Watching the trees slowly grow full with leaves and colorful flowers coming into bloom makes spring and summer one of the best times of year! There are also some major downsides to to warming weather and blossoming plants that, without preparation, can cause us harm or discomfort. Sometimes it's harmless, such as mild seasonal allergies to tree pollen. Tree, grass, and weed pollen are a widespread allergen to many people in the United States. In most cases, seasonal allergies only lead to mild discomfort, but for others, plant allergies require intervention. Poison ivy, on the otherhand, affects about 85% of the U.S. population, with over 50 million people suffering from the allergic reaction to the...

Tricky Labels: What Do They Mean?

Heart-Healthy Foods labeled as "heart-healthy" have been deemed to be low in sodium, low in saturated fat, and contain no trans fats. Heart healthy foods contain very little fat in general. The heart healthy check: You've seen this check mark on food labels in the grocery store, but you may have not known what it was for. What exactly does heart healthy food need to have before it can be labeled so?  Foods have to meet a specific set of qualifications in order to be packaged with the Heart Healthy Check on their label. The FDA inspects each product to make sure it meets the standars. You can read more about the qualifications at heart.org: Total Fat: Less than 6.5 g Saturated Fat: 1 g or less and 15% or...

The Dish on Diets: Healthy Eating for a Healthy Life

Fad diets and crash diets come and go, but there are a few diets that have stood strong throughout the years. We will be talking about a few of the most popular and long-standing diets that have come around, emphasizing both the positive and negative aspects of each. Diets don’t work for everybody, and diets are definitely not one-size-fits-all. We are all looking for a balance of food groups, essential vitamins and minerals, and living a healthy and active lifestyle. Steer clear of diets that promote rapid weight loss or have very strict guidelines. A diet is about a lifestyle change, not a temporary fix, and strict guidelines make it difficult for new dieters to stick to their plan! Paleo Description The idea behind the paleo diet is...

What are natural flavors on food labels

Secret ingredients? We are beginning to understand how important it is to read the labels on our food and know exactly what we are eating. As you scan through the list of ingredients, what you’re not seeing is a lot of hidden ingredients. Hidden ingredients are things that remain undisclosed on the label. Most of the time they are harmless, but if a person has certain food sensitivities, these hidden ingredients could cause trouble. How do we know what we are reading really means what it says? Artificial colors What does this mean? We see this listed on ingredients everywhere! Artificial colors are simply food dyes that are added to foods where the color is not appealing, healthy-looking, or when the product will change colors with age. Some...

Reading Food Labels: The Basics

Serving Size We talk about servings every time we discuss how much food from each food group we eat in a day. For example, 2 servings of vegetables or 3 servings of fruit. But how do we know how much food is in a single serving? That’s where the nutrition labels come in. A Nutrition facts label will tell you immediately what is considered 1 serving of the packaged product. It will also let you know how many of those servings are in the container. Often, it’s just an approximate number since a lot of packaging is done by the weight of the item not the quantity inside. Everything listed on the label below will be the amount per single serving of the product. Measuring Servings by Ounces: If...
