Stuck on You: Mummies had Plaque too!

Cassie Rowe, MS, RD, LD/N

I came across a timely article after my last posting about the Paleo Diet; recent research that adds to the bundle of evidence we have already, telling us that people died from heart disease thousands of years ago—meaning it’s not a mere recent phenomenon as we are often led to believe by researchers today. Any guesses as to how we’ve got this info? Mummies. Yep, you read it right. Mummies.

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?
