Rutabagas Are Healthy, But You May Want to Eat In Moderation (Along With Other Root Veggies)

Knowing how to eat is just as (if not more) important as knowing what to eat. I think it’s pretty much common knowledge that whole, unprocessed foods, such as fruits and vegetables, are far more healthier than nutrient-void, processed foods. I do, however, believe that many are unaware of how important it is to also know how to properly portion certain plant-based foods.

You Might Want To Consider Being a ‘Locavore.’

I try my best to provide healthy, plant-forward dinners for my husband and 15-month-old son as much as possible. It’s not always easy, and I know many people can relate to this whether they are cooking just for themselves or their families. My biggest struggle is falling into a rut (really, broccoli again?!) or not knowing what to cook for dinner (enter feeling defeated and succumbing to take-out).

Attention Costco Shoppers. Hot Dog & Soda Will Always Be $1.50, But You Can’t Put a Price On Health

Recently, consumers speculated that the popular $1.50 hot dog and soda combo would increase in price due to inflation. It makes sense considering that a few months ago the price of Costco food court’s chicken bake increased from $2.99 to $3.99 “and its 20-ounce soda rose by 10 cents to 69 cents,” according to an CNBC report from July.

What is “Reducetarianism,” and Should You Practice It?

What and how we eat is very complex. Some people practice intermittent fasting.
