But beyond prices paid at the register, when you consider true cost accounting (factoring the value of social, environmental, and health impacts of food production), there is no comparison between healthier and less-healthy food: healthier food invariably wins, hands down.
Last week, I attended the annual International Conference on Culinary Arts and Sciences in Montclair, N.J. Occurring for the first time in the United ...
Making an effort to decrease the amount of food you waste has several benefits, from money savings to environmental support and even philanthropy. Curious where to start? A little planning and self-awareness goes a long way.
With farmers markets in full-swing and the summer bounty on the horizon this is a great time of year to embrace a more plant-centric plate!
While we know that not having enough to drink in extreme heat, or when vigorously exercising makes people very unhappy (and quite ill), it's less clear how small changes in fluid intake affect mood and energy levels.
Most people unpack their shopping bags and put everything in the refrigerator. In theory, that seems like a good idea, doesn't it? Then why do we find a few days later our fruits and vegetables are limp, shriveled, or worse yet rotten? What went wrong?
With more than seven billion of us established here, with California drying up, with climate changing and traditional crops failing, with extinctions accelerating and with environmental stresses globally near the breaking point, earth is no longer an unsinkable, titanic cruise ship.
Whether a runner or not, we are all living active lifestyles these days and need proper nutrients to fuel our bodies right. Superfoods are a great way to get enough of those nutrients. With all the products promoting superfood claims these days, it can be hard to find the best ones.
Within the last month, the KIND snack company, received a warning letter from the U.S. Food and Drug ...
If I'm dreaming I wish men would come out and say "we don't like a woman with a super flat stomach, perfection is not what we're after"...but that would require I go back to sleep and dreamland.
We only really have a choice between sensible guidelines that address sustainability, and senseless guidelines that dismiss the obvious. We only really have a choice between protecting our kids' food and water, and consuming it all. We only really have a choice between addressing a clear and present danger, and the shortsighted stupidity of ignoring it.
One of the hardest things about being overweight is how you feel about yourself. I know, because I've been there. I want to share a story with you......
I just don't find the appeal of a liquid meal as pleasurable as eating -- and chewing -- real food. I'd rather boost my energy taking a walk outside, doing yoga, getting a good night's sleep and eating a delicious meal prepared with farm fresh vegetables and fruits and lean proteins.
For all his contributions to science, controversial and otherwise, in modern context Sir Isaac Newton is most indelibly associated with one rather suc...
I simply got into a routine. By having that consistency, it created a habit and I actually craved going to the gym at lunch. An added bonus is that it helped my stress levels and I would come back to my desk reenergized for the afternoon. Now I'm trying to create a routine that works for me in my new life as an entrepreneur.
The forests that produce our oxygen are in turn dependent on animal species that are sustained by them, and pay it back in various ways, such as by dispersing seeds. The vast interdependence of life is a bedrock principle of biology, from bees to buffalo to banyan trees. As glaciers melt and sea levels rise, our fellow species and we will sink or swim together.
