Is This Organic?

[caption id="attachment_902" align="alignnone" width="725"] Creative Commons: Ginny[/caption] With a lot of new research about food products in our supermarkets, there are many people who are choosing to buy organic products for themselves and their families. It wasn't long before people started to realize how hard it was to decipher what was made or grown organically and what was not. With debates about labels and government regulations, identifying certified organic foods is not always a simple task. Here, we discuss two ways to read the labels on your food for when you're thinking to yourself, "is this organic?" Organic Labels These categories are set up by the USDA and all products sold in stores are required to follow them. Not all organic foods need to use the USDA Organic label...


Not All Fats are Created Equally

[caption id="attachment_860" align="alignnone" width="600"] Photo: cyclonebill[/caption] Why all fats are not the enemy The first thing that comes to many people’s minds when talking about fat in our food is a myriad of unhealthy foods such as chocolate cake or cheese fries. Fatty foods have a bad reputation because we know that when we eat a lot of unhealthy foods, it makes us gain weight. In fact, we get so used to eating fatty foods that it makes it easy for us to overeat as well as make us crave fatty foods when we are hungry.

Reading Food Labels: The Basics

Serving Size We talk about servings every time we discuss how much food from each food group we eat in a day. For example, 2 servings of vegetables or 3 servings of fruit. But how do we know how much food is in a single serving? That’s where the nutrition labels come in. A Nutrition facts label will tell you immediately what is considered 1 serving of the packaged product. It will also let you know how many of those servings are in the container. Often, it’s just an approximate number since a lot of packaging is done by the weight of the item not the quantity inside. Everything listed on the label below will be the amount per single serving of the product. Measuring Servings by Ounces: If...
