A few years ago, a large study of more than 150,000 women helped clear poor, vilified coffee of the suspicion it was contributing to hypertension
But while that 2005 study found no connection between even many daily cups of coffee and high blood pressure, it pointed a finger at another suspect (indeed –one of the usual suspects): It found that soda intake—regular and diet alike—was associated with higher blood… Continue

I wanted to go right back to the very beginning of the Protein and Fat Loss discussion to provide some very basic "first principles" that you must know as you embark on your fat loss journey. In this post, which I am now referring to as Part 0 (because parts 1, 2a and 2b have
already been written!) I will explain why Protein is so important in fat loss (yes you should be getting protein with every single meal you eat to keep your furnace stoked...more on that in another post), and… Continue

I recently ‘converted’ my family to add at least one raw meal once a day to our diet.

Soon our son will be turning 3 and I’m already planning with excitement his birthday party, which requires me to do lots of thinking about alternative solutions for a healthy kids menu and eco friendly party.

We like to eat. We especially like indulgent foods – desserts, snacks and tasty treats.
We’d love to believe it’s okay to heap our plates with foods we perceive as “healthy".
In fact, studies have shown time and again that foods perceived as healthy or foods with a health aura drive us — if only subconsciously — to eat more. Foods with "low… Continue

I started hearing about the concept of raw food quite a few years ago. I was just starting to realise how the food I’m putting into my body affects my health, and the idea of eating a lot of fresh vegetables and fruit, unheated – made sense to… Continue

First Mom Michelle Obama said
to food makers recently: “If there is anyone here who can sell food to our kids, it’s you. You know what gets them to drive their parents crazy in the grocery store.”
We parents are quite aware of a TV ad when we see one, but marketing efforts go way beyond direct advertising on TV and internet games. Kids are exposed to slick… Continue
