    Health Food Store People are very conscious about their health. Many are tired of using the same old commercial products with the issues of worsening skin, falling hair, unhealthy food consumption and non recyclable residue. There are many foods that add good nutrition to your body. Only few health food stores are available today that provide healthy food. A health food store is a store that offers healthy food products such as healthy snacks, organic breakfast, dry fruits, oil and ghee, pulses, rice and flour, snacks, spices, tea and coffee that helps you to be healthy and strong.  These…

    There’s not much gray area when it comes to probiotics and our health and more and more studies suggest positive effects from taking probiotics. A boost in immune function is a prime example. [1] While many have speculated antibiotics–by decreasing bacteria–are responsible for rising obesity, one recent study found lower levels of bacteria could actually cause a person to be overweight. [2] The human gut is home to a plethora of bacteria—some good, some bad—and as “good” bacteria, probiotics could help maintain that balance; but, there’s one thing we can probably all…

    These nutritious treats on crackers are going to annihilate your midday junk food cravings and show NO REMORSE. Most healthy snacks offer very little textural contrast — they’re either all smushy, like smoothies and oatmeal, or all crunchy, like pretzels and granola bars. Having a little crunch with a little something creamy is more satisfying. I like crispbread crackers (like this) for the task because there is just the right amount of surface area to make things interesting without overdoing it.

    As you’ve already known, GMO foods are extremely unsafe because of the countless health risks and life-threatening diseases that they can cause in the long run. Even if consumers are now more aware about the negative effects of GMOs, greedy manufacturers still continue to produce and sell them to this day. They certainly won’t be stopping anytime soon, therefore it’s up to us to be more meticulous when it comes to buying safer foods.Several studies have found that sugar beets, soy, canola, cotton, and corn are the top 5 crops that are often genetically-modified.

    The close of the Permian Period around 250 million years ago saw Earth's biggest extinction ever. At this time large volcanic eruptions were occurring in what is now Siberia. The volcanoes pumped out gases that led to acid rain. Falling on the supercontinent Pangaea, the acid rain killed off end-Permian forests. The demise of forests led to soil erosion and the production of organic-rich sediments in shallow marine waters.

    As one of the most preventable conditions on the planet, obesity is, unfortunately, a significant problem in the world today. According to the World Health Association, the global obesity rate has more than doubled since 1980.

According to governmental health charts, if you have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more, you’re considered obese. The BMI scale, however, is largely generalized and doesn’t take into account muscle weight. What You Should Know About Obesity If…

But I don't want to talk about chemicals right now, rather a very different type of DDT: Desired Dough Temperature. Why worry about the temperature of dough?Well, why sauté onions on the stove at a low temperature or bake muffins in a 350 F oven, or slow-smoke a pork shoulder on the grill at 200 F? Because temperature matters, that's why.In…

    As a society, we have tried to encourage kids to eat healthy foods by hiding them, disguising them as something else, or pouring processed cheese sauce on them, and I think that we do a disservice to children by doing so. Children don’t come into the world eating only chicken nuggets, pizza, and french fries. They will eat the food that they are given. That’s the food that they will become used to and like. So, if we feed them only “kid” food, those are the tastes they will develop. If, however, we feed them all sorts of foods, they will eat them as well. Our daughter, Shorey, eats…

    On the first Wednesday of every other month, I have a column called Wednesdays at Whole Foods. It showcases the most interesting news, products, store events, and happenings at the company. Today’s column is a slight departure from the normal format. —- There are very few people on the planet that have more insight into what is going on in the organic food industry than the department heads and buyers at Whole Foods Market. After all, these are individuals who put billions of dollars worth of products on supermarket shelves. Not only are they market influencers and tastemakers,…

    If anyone you know is still feeding their children conventional cereal, maybe this piece of news will get them to change their habits. GMO Free USA, a non-profit that educates consumers and other stakeholders about the potential hazards of GMOs, just published its results of independent lab tests (verified by DNA analysis) done on Kellogg’s Froot Loops cereal. Here’s what they found: 1) 100% of the corn in the Froot Loops was genetically-modified, containing DNA sequences known to be present in insecticide-producing Bt and Roundup Ready corn. This corn produces insecticides inside…

  • Easy Red Lentil Kale Soup

    Luisa Rodriguez
    26 Feb 2015 | 4:53 am
    This is one of my go-to recipes for a quick easy winter lunch, especially this winter. It has been so cold that almost the entire family (excluding my eight-year-old who hates soup) looks forward to no matter how many times I make it. It warms the soul and it is yummy too. The best part […]

  • Forgive Your Way to Better Health

    Luisa Rodriguez
    21 Jan 2015 | 1:30 pm
    At Sunday service, we have all heard our pastors tell us that we should forgive one another. They may have even taken us to the record in Matthew 18:2 where Jesus tells Peter that we should forgive someone 70 times seven times. However, did you know that unforgiveness can be detrimental to your health? On the flip side, […]

    10 Nov 2014 | 5:28 am
    Those who know me, know that I am a big proponent of breastfeeding. They also know that I breastfed both of my kids past the one year mark. I know that sounds strange to many or and it may even sound disgusting to others. I remember overhearing a mom in one of my circles criticize the idea not knowing […]
  • A Better Way to Christmas Shop

    Luisa Rodriguez
    23 Oct 2014 | 11:36 am
    Every Christmas, the average American spends about $800. The profits from those sales will mostly benefit the shareholders, executives, and owners of those companies. Although many of these companies do make donations to charities, it is usually a tiny fraction of their earnings. I am not against corporate wealth, but I am saddened by the amount of […]

    23 Feb 2015 | 10:26 am
    This is the second fruit in my candidly themed "test the fruits" series. See part 1 here. I bought a Carambola from wholefoods recently. It's commonly called a starfruit, because it looks just like a star when sliced.It was pretty bland. It tasted a little like a sour grape and the edible skin was similar to that of an apple.

  • Natural Deoderants : Are They Even Safe?

    16 Feb 2015 | 2:19 pm
    I've used to use a deoderant which contained sodium alum. Yes it works, but NO it's not all that safe to use. I've come to realize that it's getting harder and harder to find GENUINE natural and healthy foods and cosmetics. It's a sign of the end times really.I hate feeling cheated and wasting my money. These days the packaging of "natural" products is deceptive. As is the wording. I did some research into the sodium alum used to make this deodorant. Here's what I found.Read more »
