Nutrition Myths Busted

(CARLSBAD, CA) – Everybody is giving nutrition advice these days. The clerk at your local drugstore, the radio DJ, and your friends on Facebook all have their favorite tips when it comes to healthy eating. The problem is that much of the nutrition advice we get from those around us is inaccurate.


Are You Going Nuts?

(CARLSBAD, CA) – Walnuts, peanuts, pecans and almonds. Nuts are all around us, and according to the newest research, these nutritional powerhouses can be genuine lifesavers. Just last month, researchers from Loma Linda University published an analysis of 25 studies, all of which link nut consumption to a healthy heart.


Fresh Fruit – Your Summer Shopping Guide

(CARLSBAD, CA) – Thumping a watermelon. Grandma swears by this method when picking her fruit for the annual family Fourth of July picnic. This year, it’s your turn. You scurry to the grocery store, dash over to the fresh fruit section, and start thumping. There’s only one problem. You have no idea what sound your “thump” is supposed to elicit in the giant melon!


Is Protien Power Overrated?

(CARLSBAD, CA) –  Atkins. South Beach. The Zone. Everywhere you look, high-profile diets of the day promise a svelte physique if you pack on the protein and “eighty six” the carbs.

Do we really need that much protein?


All Carbs Are Not Created Equal

Snack Attack

A Spoonful of Sugar

(CARLSBAD, CA) – A spoonful of sugar may help the medicine go down, but Mary Poppins might just change her mind if she knew how much sugar Americans are actually consuming these days.


Going Vegetarian

(CARLSBAD, CA) – So, you think you want to go vegetarian. Perhaps you’ve heard about the dangers of eating too much red meat. Maybe you’re setting a resolution to diet on fruits and veggies.

(CARLSBAD, CA) – It’s turkey time! That means family gatherings, football games, and hours logged at the dining room table eating.


Organic Foods – Are They Worth It?
