We all know something is not quite right with our food system when organizations can sell burgers for under 2 bucks. Whether it is euros, dollars or pounds the idea that the cows grow to produce these beef burgers is reduced to a value only, means nutrition, sustainability and systemic wellness have all gone out the window.
As the cancer rates have continued to rise to 1-in-2 for men, and 1-in-3 for women, I have personally seen many people hopelessly say, “Everything now causes cancer.”
Overwhelmed by information overload and contradicting research, it’s no surprise that it is hard not to get discouraged when trying to eat healthy. The good news is – there are significantly more things that are not carcinogenic or capable of healing the body and defective cells, than there are those that are carcinogenic.
Fizzy water is damaging our teeth as its acidity wears down enamel, an expert warns.
Sparkling water is more acidic than the plain version of the beverage, which is made worse by its common inclusion of additives, according to Dr Edmond Hewlett from the UCLA School of Dentistry.
Drinking fizzy water causes a chemical reaction that produces carbonic acid and gives the drink its distinctive ‘crisp' taste, however, that same substance may also seriously damage our dental health.
I'll be the first to admit it, up until a few weeks ago I was not much of a kohlrabi advocate. To me, it looks like it came from the dinosaur era and feels almost mutated. But! It keeps appearing in CSA boxes and on grocery stands, so I did some more research and came to find out that it's in the same family as kale, collards, broccoli, and mustard greens. What's inside, though, is totally unique.

Young or old — one or all of these major issues are likely to hit you like a mack truck at some point in your life. It can happen when you’re 28 or 88 but eventually these pain points are going to impair your quality of life before you even see them coming.

One of my favorite things about being a chef is taking an existing traditional recipe and playing around with it to make it healthier—without sacrificing any flavor. Here are my go-to swaps for when junk food cravings hit:
If you're craving Mac & Cheese, try Quinoa Pasta With Walnut Miso Sauce
While on my quest to find more natural ways to prevent and cure any ailment known to man, I ran into an array of plants that I had never seen before. As a child, one of my father’s hobbies was harvesting plants and growing fruits and vegetables. After school, I would go outside to help him even though I did not have much of a green thumb.
You may have caught wind of last week’s news that 20 percent of baby food—and 14 percent of other food—contains lead. The finding came from a report by the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), a nonprofit advocacy group.
Here’s what you should know.
Still believe that processed food products are mostly pretty wholesome and, as they often like to claim, ‘full of natural goodness’?
Well, they’re certainly full of something, but perhaps not what you believe. None of us would really choose to eat some of the truly disgusting ingredients that have been cunningly packed inside a strawberry-flavored pudding, ice cream or a hot dog.
Let me guess, you are one of two kinds of people when it comes to sardines:
You love them and eat them regularly or you can’t stand them and don’t even know why you are reading a post about them.
Statistically, it’s likely you are in the latter group, as 73% of people claim to dislike sardines. But give me 5 minutes and I might convince you to try them… and maybe even love them!
