Each week I focus on articles and tips for Healthy Living (nutrition, fitness, weight loss, etc.)
- 51 Billion Calories & Counting (PR-USA.NET)
- Too busy to grocery shop? (SEACOAST ONLINE)
- Build a healthy garden from the ground up (SFGATE)
- Could you change 10 percent of your diet to locally-sourced foods? (ANNARBOR.COM)
- Farmhouse Culture‘s Classic Caraway sauerkraut is made with only three ingredients (organic green cabbage, caraway seeds and Sonoma sea salt). Crunchy and full of flavor, Classic Caraway is naturally low in calories and high in both fiber and vitamin C. Eat it on its own as a salad, or piled on a turkey sandwich with a smear of hot Dijon mustard.
- Penna Spicy Beans pack a wallop of flavor into each crunchy bean — they’re low in calories and offer a good dose of fiber, calcium and potassium. Add these spicy beans to an appetizer platter or chop coarsely and toss in a salad.
- Two tablespoons of Trader Joe’s Eggplant Hummus is a mere 30-calories and offers eight-percent of your daily fiber requirement. Try a dollop on your sandwich as a mayo substitution — or simply enjoy the rich flavor as a dip for raw vegetables or crisp crackers.
