If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It! Watermelon Is Delicious & Healthy Just As It Is

Just when I think I’ve seen it all, I come across stories such as the following. Apparently, popular pizza chain Domino’s attempted to create a watermelon pizza that actually tastes good. Yes, you read that correctly, and not surprisingly they failed! Watermelon has been quite the popular food lately on social media. For example, there was a recent TikTok trend where people were putting mustard on watermelon and eating it. Even Lizzo tried it. Again, unsurprisingly she did not find it very appetizing.

You May Drop Pounds With Keto, But It Could Cost You Your Health

If you hop on Instagram and do a search with #keto, you will come across more than 23 million posts. Many of these posts feature beautiful, fit people showcasing appetizing looking low carb, high fat meals with animal protein such as chicken, steak and even processed meats such as bacon and salami. Bread and high sugar fruits such as pineapple are pretty much forbidden, and full-fat dairy is more than welcome.

A Low-Fiber Diet May Not Be So Gut Friendly, Even If You Are Not Obese

I bet if I asked what is the most important role of fiber, many of you would say to help you go to the bathroom! And that is one of the reasons why dietary fiber is so important. But there’s also a lot more to fiber.

Fasting May Be Beneficial, But Here Are Some Details You May Want to Know

There are many famous people who endorse intermittent fasting. Apparently, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey skips breakfast and lunch and only eats dinner (between the hours of 6:30pm and 9pm). "During the day, I feel so much more focused," he said during a podcast, according to People Magazine. "You have this very focused point of mind in terms of this drive. The time back from breakfast and lunch allowed me to focus more on what my day is."

Vitamin K Just Gave You More Reasons to Eat Your Green, Leafy Vegetables

Vitamin K (not to be confused with the cereal of a similar name!), was discovered in 1929 and got its moniker of vitamin K from the German word "Koagulationsvitamin" since it was originally identified as having an important role in our blood’s ability to clot after an injury like a cut. (Clotting prevents excessive internal or external bleeding). 

Get Rid Of That Sweet Tooth. Your Cells May Thank You!

We all know that consuming too much sugar is not good for us. For example, you probably realize that eating a lot of sugar increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Despite this, it’s hard for many of us to reduce the amount of sugar from our daily diets. It tastes good, delivers a jolt of energy, is readily available in so many foods and is very addicting (some doctors say just as addicting as drugs).

A Simple Eating Guide To Preventing Heart Disease

If I sound like a broken record, I’m sorry. It is, however, always worth mentioning that heart disease is the leading killer of both American men and women. Until this fact changes, I honestly do not think that I can discuss heart disease prevention enough.

We Must See Plant-Based Meat Alternatives and Beef on an Equal but Different Playing Field

It can be difficult to keep up with all the food products that are readily accessible to us. Although it is great that we have so many options, we really need to do our research and make sure that we are getting the nutritional value we expect.

Cottage Cheese Before Bed?

Cottage cheese is not the prettiest looking food out there. If I’m being completely transparent, this type of cheese reminds me of those not-so-sexy, back-in-the-day salad bars that also offered jello. But a recent study provided evidence suggesting that I may want to give cottage cheese a chance in my regular diet.

Are Fasting & Golf The Fountain of Youth Combo We All Need?

Professional golfer Phil Mickelson recently won the P.G.A. Championship at 50-years old, reportedly making him the oldest winner of a major golf tournament. I by no means consider 50 to be old, but in the world of professional sports 50 is apparently "old." Mickelson beat players half his age, so, of course, everyone wants to know: what is his secret?

We Have An Energy Drink Addiction Issue On Our Hands. It’s Time To Be Proactive

The first two things that come to mind when people think of addiction issues are usually drugs and alcohol. But, of course, we can really become addicted to anything whether it’s food, sugar, shopping, exercise and sex (just to name a few). Once a substance or habit starts to take over and negatively affect your quality of life, livelihood and health, to me, this is addiction.

Why You Should Care About Carob, Especially If You Are Overweight

Healthy foods really can have magical effects. For example, foods high in vitamin C, such as lemon, orange, kiwi, broccoli and bell pepper, help prevent scurvy and may even help better manage diabetic foot ulcers and slow down aging of our skin. Carob powder appears to be another one of these magical foods.
