Is Sugar In Fruit Bad For You?

A crop of new fad diets, such as paleo, keto, carnivore and pegan — have convinced a lot of people that fruit is a dietary no-no. Some making making claims like “fruit is bad for you” or “fruit is toxic." It’s true that whole fruit contains sugar, but it is natural sugar. The sugar we would be wise to limit is added sugar, found in regular soda and many highly processed foods. When you eat an apple, a pear, a peach or some berries, their sugar comes wrapped in a fiber-rich, water-rich, nutrient-rich package.

9 Health Benefits of Oranges Backed By Science

The orange is both a literal and symbolic embodiment of the sun, from whose light it is formed and vibrantly emanates. As a whole food, it irradiates us with a spectrum of healing properties, the most prominent of which some call "vitamin C activity," but which is not reducible to the chemical skeleton known as 'ascorbic acid.' Science now confirms the orange has a broad range of medicinal properties, which is why the ancients knew it both as a food and medicine. As our increasingly overdiagnosed and overmedicated population leaps lemming-like over the cliff of pharmaceutically-driven conventional medicine, with most drugs carrying a dozen or more adverse side effects for every benefit adver

Spring Clean Your Health Routine

Use the change in season as your cue to make some mental and physical shifts. Here are some ideas for dusting off your health and wellness routines just in time for spring. 1. PUT YOURSELF ON YOUR TO-DO LIST When you’re always putting other people’s needs ahead of your own, your performance as a parent, professional and leader can suffer. Put your oxygen mask on first! 2. JUST GET OUTSIDE It’s smart to get a small amount of unprotected sun exposure — say 10 minutes a day (apply sunscreen after that) — in order to let your body produce Vitamin D which is linked to helping prevent everything from osteoporosis, to heart disease and certain types of cancer. And no one can argue the fact that

What's up, Doc?!

With Easter right around the corner, we thought we would mix things up this week with Organic Rainbow Baby Carrots. The carrot (Daucus carota) is a root vegetable that is often claimed to be the perfect health food. It is crunchy, tasty and highly nutritious. Carrots are a particularly good source of beta-carotene, fiber, vitamin K, potassium and antioxidants. Carrots have a number of health benefits. They are a weight loss friendly food and have been linked to lower cholesterol levels and improved eye health. The carotene antioxidants in them have also been linked to reduced risk of cancer. They are found in many colors, including yellow, white, orange, red and purple. The traditional or
