A Food Fight of Epic Proportions

Cassie Rowe, MS, RD, LD/N

Earlier this month a new “rule” was proposed that will prohibit the sales of any unhealthy snacks at any school that receives government funding (i.e., schools who participate in the National School Lunch Program). There's some debate about the outcome of this regulation and when and if it’s implemented (that’s up to you, since the general public has time to comment). Depending on the angle with which you view this legislation, you may or may not be for it. This might just be a food fight for the record books!

Food Porn: Just in Time For Valentine's Day

Cassie Rowe, MS, RD, LD/N

Yep! I said it. Food PORN. What is it? Well, it’s a term defined by The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) as “menu items with eye-popping levels of calories, saturated fat, sugar and/or sodium”, and it exemplifies the Xtreme Eating list put out by the same group which identifies the most unhealthy dishes at restaurant chains in the nation. Curious about the winners this year?

A brand-new research study published this year brings us more positive health-nutrition news. It appears that young and middle-aged women can decrease their risk of heart attack by eating a combination of blueberries and strawberries. Delish!

Early results of a new study show that people who consume coffee are less depressed than people who drink sugar-sweetened beverages. How’s that for incentive to drink your morning cup of Joe?
