The excessive amount of sugar kids consume during and after the Halloween holiday can be spooky. But it doesnâ€™t have to be. Though most trick-or-treaters tend to throw out the apples and raisins put in their pillow sacks, there are yummy treats that offer a nice compromise â€“ great taste without all the sugar. It’s all in the way you present it. Little ones will love these healthy alternatives – and parents, youâ€™ll love the way their children respond to them. Get your kids involved in preparing healthy treats. Letting them decorate their own creations using miniature candies/chips/sprinkles means they’ll have a blast making and eating them!
Check back soon for some healthful recipes you can make with your Little ghosts and goblins!
If you want to swing by and see/sit in it, please let me know. Can’t wait for my FCV!!!
So excited to drive the new Honda Clarity Fuel Cell – coming to L.A. by the end of this year! Amazed to learn that it will have all of the latest driver safety features (lane keeping assist and adaptive cruise control, among others) that will help me stay on the road safely on my drives to our farm (The Mesa) – I can’t wait – less than 20 weeks to CLARITY.

Researchers examined diet and mortality among some 125,000 male and female health professionals who were free of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes at baseline. During roughly 30 years’ follow-up, over 33,000 participants died. High intake of saturated fat â€” when replacing carbohydrates â€” was associated with an 8% increase in total mortality. Similarly, high trans fat intake conferred a 13% mortality increase. In contrast, high intakes of polyunsaturated fatty acids and monounsaturated fatty acids were associated with 19% and 11% reductions in mortality, respectively. In addition, replacing 5% of calories from saturated fat with calories from polyunsaturated fatty acids and monounsaturated fatty acids was associated with mortality reductions of 27% and 13%, respectively. The authors conclude: “Replacement of saturated fats with unsaturated fats … should continue to be a key message in dietary recommendations. These findings also support the elimination of partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, the primary source of trans-fatty acids.”
At NutriFit, we minimize saturated fats because we care about your health. Science proves it, and we believe it.
The Aztecs and Mayans were the first to recognize the potency of chocolate â€“ theyâ€™d celebrate the harvest of the cacao bean with festivals of wild orgies. Montezuma believed that drinking 50 cups of chocolate each day enabled him to better serve his harem of 600 women. For my NutriFit meal delivery service clients, I believe that it puts us in â€śthe zoneâ€ť. The zone of health, that is!
Science gives us another reason to enjoy this heady delight. Dark chocolate contains naturally occurring plant compounds called Flavonoids. These natural powerhouses are part of the polyhenol group.
Some of the key heart health benefits include:
Some psychological benefits of chocolate include improved mood and pleasure, by boosting serotonin and endorphin levels in the brain.
Finally, flavonoids absorb UV light, and so have a beauty benefit of keeping womenâ€™s skin more moist, smoother and less scaly. After all, better blood flow in general also means increased blood flow to the skin!
For all these reasons, and because I love chocolate, Iâ€™ve designed hundreds of delivered, healthy diets that include daily doses of the best quality, most delicious, guiltless decadent desserts.
Highlights from our day of harvesting yesterday include:
81 lbs. of zucchini
17 lbs. of rainbow Swiss chard
14 lbs. of cucumbers
9 lbs. of tomatoes
5 lbs. of fresh herbs (mint, pineapple sage, thyme, oregano, basil, chives)
edible flowers, lettuce, purple and fingerling potatoes, bok choi…
This from the Tufts Health & Nutrition Update this morning:
In a recent report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Committee for the first time addressed safety concerns about coffee, concluding that drinking three to five cups a day (up to about 400 milligrams of caffeine) was associated with minimal health risks. The experts also noted observational studies indicating that coffee intake is associated with lower risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

More scientific evidence affirming health values associated with drinking coffee: “A large new Korean study reports that people drinking three to five cups of coffee daily were 41% less likely to show signs of coronary artery calcium than non-coffee drinkers. This calcification is an early indicator of the artery-clogging plaques (atherosclerosis) that cause coronary artery disease, which afflicts nearly 16 million Americans.The findings should in any case perk up coffee drinkers, many of whom grew up hearing that their favorite beverage was bad for you. The recent report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Committee for the first time addressed safety concerns about coffee, concluding that drinking three to five cups a day (up to about 400 milligrams of caffeine) was associated with minimal health risks.
