Barley Greens: A Few Things You Didn’t Know About This Superfood

According to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, more than 1 in 2 adults and nearly 1 in 6 children are overweight or obese in countries surveyed by the OECD. There’s an unfortunate increase in obesity across most countries, but the United States continues to be the least health-conscious. A recent study by the OECD found the U.S. to have the greatest amount of obese adults, making up 38.2 percent of the population aged 15 and older. 

But what makes the U.S. so out of touch with health? Not only are the average portion sizes out of control, but also, most of what Americans eat consists of over-processed, cooked foods. Following a raw, plant-based diet is one of the most beneficial moves you can make to promote healthy aging. Organic foods in their raw, uncooked form offer the most valuable nutrients available to man.  Live foods, such as a raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and organic whole grains include an abundance of live enzymes, antioxidants and other nutrients and retain said offerings until they are digested into your system. That means you’re getting the most of what these live foods include instead of only a small percentage that a cooked product would provide.

Barley grass, for example, is naturally abundant in various nutrients that support the immune system and impact overall health and well-being.In this article, we’ll dive into some of the benefits of barley grass juice (barley greens) and how harvesting them and turning them into a

Want to Create a Healthy Home? Consider These 4 Areas

From helping you to relax to making it easier to cook nourishing meals, a healthy home is all about creating a space where you can feel your best.

If you enter your home and immediately feel unease or stress just from the sight of it, it could be time for a mini-transformation to align the energy of your space with the energy you want to be feeling in your life. (Especially since we’re all spending so much more time at home).

I’m sharing the 4 areas we’ve focused on in our home to create a space that feels like a mini-sanctuary and supports our daily wellbeing. 

How You Can Create A Healthy Home That Supports Your Health

Just as we’re mindful and aware of food items we put into our body, the same should be said about the air we breathe, the cleaning supplies we use in our home and everything else that surrounds us.

Things that make our space feel more like a health sanctuary or a space that supports my overall wellbeing is a mix of items and actions.

I’m mindful of the energy I bring into my home — as in checking myself if I’m particularly stressed or anxious — that way, what’s coming into our space is more aligned with how I would like to feel.

Engaging in activities that you love are also key to making it feel like a retreat away from all of the stimulation and distractions of daily life. For me, this looks

How to Make Pesto Out of Different Greens

Did you know you can make pesto with other greens instead of just basil?

Pesto is fresh and green and has the right balance of savory and earthy flavors. From salads, sandwiches, and pasta to chicken and seafood, pesto can basically transform any dish into a nutrient-dense and savory meal.

Pesto originated in Genoa Italy and is traditionally made with pine nuts, Parmesan cheese or hard cheese like Pecorino, basil, garlic, and olive oil.

The exciting thing about pesto recipes is the versatility you can apply with the greens — so instead of using fresh basil, you can get creative with any green or herb you have an excess of such as collard, kale, arugula, and mustard greens. This is such a great idea to use for food preservation after an abundant gardening season, to utilize all the greens you received in a local CSA, or if you stocked up at the market or grocery store on different greens.

Adding leafy greens, like spinach, kale, Swiss chard, and collard greens, to your pesto is an excellent way to boost the nutrition of your meal and use up all those seasonal greens no matter what your region.

How to stop overeating, bingeing, restricting and other patterns of compulsive eating during a pandemic. Learn how to develop a healthy relationship with food during the quarantine.

Can you believe we’re almost in the middle of July already? 2020 has definitely seen it’s fair share of major events over the last few months, all while under the cloud of a pandemic. None of us were really prepared to deal with the unique challenges that this year has brought due to a drastic shift in our routines. Many of us have been adjusting to running our lives completely out of our homes, and despite what some may believe, no one is immune to the effects that social isolation has on our emotional well-being

The Top 5 Vegetables for Digestion

Including a variety of top vegetables for digestion in your diet is a great way to boost your body’s ability to process nutrients efficiently.

Whether it’s bloat, gas, frequent bathroom breaks, or constipation, achieving healthy digestion is one of the most popular topics with my clients and our community.

While I already discussed the fiber-rich fruits that help to keep your system flowing, now it’s time to talk about a handful of vegetables that can help improve digestion. Both fruits and vegetables are known for their fiber content, but there are some key veggies that have a “special” effect on digestion.

Depending on your unique digestive system, gut microbiota, and tolerance to fiber, eating too much fiber can either leave you feeling very full and possibly constipated or with frequent bathroom breaks. The key when boosting fiber in your diet is to take it slow and steady, give your body enough time and space to get used to the increase in fiber.

Learn a few of the best vegetables for digestion that you may want to consider incorporating into your daily diet to optimize gut health.

How Vegetables Support Digestion

We all have heard how important fiber is to our digestive system. Fiber acts as a little broom that sweets your intestines and colon of bacteria and helps keep things moving through your intestines, which is important to prevent constipation and it also helps your body signal to you that you’re full!

How To Cook Legumes

Everything you need to know about preparing, cooking and serving legumes.

Packed with fiber, protein, and carbohydrates, legumes are a great component to any diet.

They come in many shapes, sizes, colors and variations, which can often cause a bit of confusion when attempting to prepare a dish with them.

Dried legumes, in particular, are often a mystery to most people. “What exactly are they? How do you cook them?” and “What’s the difference between legumes and beans?” Are just a few of the many questions we frequently hear on the subject.

Here we’ll address them all and give you the details you need so you know exactly what to reach for and how to cook them the next time you need to!

How To Cook Legumes

Legume is essentially the overarching term for all bean-like food items. Lentils, beans, peas, chickpeas, soybeans and even peanuts are all technical members of the legume family.

Each of these variations greatly differs from one another in terms of taste, texture, and nutrition.

While we love peas, chickpeas, soybeans, and peanuts, for our purposes today we’re going to mainly focus on beans and lentils.

What’s The Deal With Canned Beans?

First and foremost – canned beans are great too! We’re not knocking canned beans by any means. They’re inexpensive, convenient and still packed with nutrition. But, they really only taste OK. Hear me out.

When prepared well, dried legumes have a far superior taste and texture as opposed to canned beans. There

4 reasons to leave meat out of your diet

Are you looking to detox and restructure your diet to eliminate unhealthy fats and toxic substances? Removing meat from your daily meals is one of the most important steps to accomplishing this goal. Animal products – red meat in particular – make up a large portion of the saturated fats people consume. Cutting meat like pork, chicken, beef and lamb from your meals can reduce your risk of serious conditions like heart disease and certain forms of cancer.

While meat-lovers may find it very challenging to say goodbye to meat for good, the health benefits are significant, including ridding the body of accumulated toxins. If you’re not convinced that this dietary change is what your body needs to begin on the path to a healthier you, refer to these reasons why eating meat is detrimental to your well-being:

1. Meat increases your risk of many life-threatening illnesses.

The Mayo Clinic pointed to a recent National Cancer Institute study of 500,000 people that showed the participants who ate the most red meat daily were 30 percent more likely to die of any cause over a 10-year period. This was compared to those who consumed the least amount of red meat. Many additional studies, including ones reviewed by the World Cancer Research Fund International, have linked meat to an increased risk of multiple forms of cancer as well

Protect your heart health and overall well-being by replacing meat with plant-based foods.

2. It’s recommended to avoid proteins that are high in solid

Understanding Postpartum Depression

Bringing a baby into the world is one of the most miraculous things a woman can do. You create a strong connection with your newborn from the moment they start growing in the womb, and watch that bond continue to blossom as your child ages. But while there are many amazing milestones and feelings that occur after giving birth, many people shy away from discussing a condition that’s very common and has mothers feeling pessimistic after pregnancy: postpartum depression.

According to The Postpartum Stress Center, postpartum depression is a medical condition that occurs in 20 percent of all women after giving birth. Women are more likely to experience a mental illness postpartum, so it’s something that shouldn’t be taken lightly.

Let’s take a closer look at postpartum depression, some of its common symptoms and ways to cope and care for your body during this period of time:

What is Postpartum Depression?
Considered a mental health illness, postpartum depression is a condition that women may develop almost immediately after giving birth, occurring days or weeks postpartum. Most commonly confused with the baby blues, PPD is diagnosed when the harsh feelings of sadness and loneliness stick around for months after delivering.

While the exact cause of postpartum depression is unknown, this mental condition is likely to blame for hormonal changes. After giving birth, hormone levels are constantly up and down and can sometimes cause chemical changes in the brain. The depletion of nutrients like DHA, iodine, and vitamin D from growing a

“Why am I so tired?” Uncovering the Root Causes of Fatigue + How to Heal Them

Do you struggle to get through the day without a cup of coffee? Two cups? Three!?

Do you feel like you’re trudging through mud all day long?

Low energy is one of the most common complaint I hear from readers and clients.

This is something I dealt with myself when I was at the height of my health issues including adrenal fatigue. Instead of coffee for me I craved sugar because my body was searching for energy! But instead of excepting this as my destiny I knew I wanted to figure out why.

“Why am I always tired and have no energy?”

“Why do I have trouble sleeping? I wake up at 2 am, can’t go back to sleep, and then I’m exhausted all day.”

“Why am I so tired even when I get enough sleep? I’m talking 8 hours, every night!”

Sure, sometimes our hectic schedules are to blame (if you’re a new mother who’s getting just a few hours of uninterrupted sleep, of course you’re going to be sleepy!).

But most often, fatigue and tiredness go beyond our busy schedules. They can also be a symptom of something deeper at play.

So if you feel something is wrong — including being tired all the time — then you need to investigate the root cause. You don’t have to “just deal with it” or “push through it.” You definitely don’t need to rely on coffee or sugar to get through the day! You can FIX it.

What Goes Into Healthy Smoothie Recipes?

Smoothies are such a great way to get a nutrient-dense meal packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants. But not all smoothies are created equally.

It can be really easy for the sugar content in some smoothies to climb up to 50 grams in one smoothie. Regardless of if that is coming from whole foods like fruits or if it’s coming from added sugars, that spike will leave most of us feeling less than our best. Whether it causes a crash in energy or make you feel hungry not long after drinking it.

So healthy smoothie recipes contain a balanced protein, non-starchy carbohydrates (like greens) that are packed with fiber, and healthy fats.

Fibroids Diet: Recommended Foods for Managing Fibroids

Getting the news that you have a fibroid is an experience of mixed emotion. By its very definition—a firm, compact tumor that develops in the uterus—a fibroid sounds like something very bad. But fibroids are not cancer, and that’s reason for celebration and relief! Indeed, most physicians say fibroids are not a concern for worry, as there is very little threat that they will turn malignant. Women who are between the ages of 30 and 40 are at the highest risk for developing fibroids, but they can still occur in women who have passed menopause.

With that said, fibroids aren’t always nothing. Sometimes they cause pain, heavy menstrual periods, constipation, pelvic pressure, and frequent urination. Importantly, fibroids can cause complications during pregnancy, and women with fibroids have an increased likelihood of cesarean delivery (C-section) because the tumors can cause the baby to sit in a position not ideal for delivery. Even if you have symptoms associated with a fibroid, there is a very low likelihood that the mass will affect the baby, but it is worth noting that women who have fibroids have a slightly higher risk of miscarriage and premature delivery.

What Are Fibroids?

 Fibroids, also known as leiomyomas or myomas, are benign tumors that grow in the muscles of the uterus. These noncancerous tumors range in size–from the size of a pea to as large as a melon. Though it is largely unknown what specifically causes fibroids, doctors believe they are linked with higher levels of the hormones

Race Discrimination in Nutrition: Why Having a DIC Matters More than you Think

A discussion on tackling race discrimination in the field of nutrition.

I’ve always been a firm believer of nutritious food. As a registered dietitian, I am academically and professionally trained in the role that scientific research plays in order to keep fatal diseases at bay. And when we talk about food, we automatically talk about the culture it originates from. They are intrinsically linked, and one does not move without the other. 

We also all know that food items have often travelled from their country of cultural origin to be integrated into another. However, you may think what has that got to do with race, ethnicity and race consciousness? 

The truth is, everything is indirectly and unfortunately, linked to race all across the globe. From where we live and what we study, to the place we worship at and who our friends are. Similarly, the production and consumption of food may also face racial inequality because of the evident lack of nutritional education and relevant research policies. 

This is because the relationship between race and nutrition is complex – intricately interwoven into the level of poverty, unemployment, hard labour and disability. These issues are further enhanced through the absence of diversity and ethnic minority representation, especially in areas where their opinions can add value to our understanding of the subject.

Public health recognizes that race discrimination and structural racism are important factors to inequality in both health behaviours and outcomes. There is a clear link between nutrition and racial

Since you’ll need plenty of energy for your hike, it’s ideal that you eat a nutritious plant-based meal to give your body fuel to stride through the workout. For those who need an additional boost during the hike, however, it’s best to bring some snacks along for the trip.

How to Find the Right Food Portion Size for Your Meals

Do you ever wonder if you’re serving up the right food portion size when you’re creating your snack or meal?

Portion sizes and serving sizes can be confusing to say the least.

How much should I be eating? Should I follow the serving sizes? How do I know whether or not I need more than the “average” person?

These are just a few of the many questions I hear from the community daily!

In order for the nutrients you’re eating to do their job and fuel your body appropriately, we need to ensure we’re consuming the right amounts.

On one hand, if you’re perpetually under-eating or not getting enough of certain foods, you are likely lacking vital nutrition which can cause fatigue, lethargy, muscle loss, hair loss, brittle nails, irritability and excessive thirst over time.

On the other hand, consistently over-eating can also make your body feel less than its best and cause a number of symptoms like unintentional weight gain, high cholesterol, high blood sugar, heart disease and many more.

When you understand what food portion sizes your body needs, it helps you get the right balance of daily nutrients, which allows our bodies to feel their best on a daily basis and prevent chronic disease and health complications in the long run.

So in this article, you’re going to discover everything you need to know about portion sizes so you feel confident in how you’re nourishing yourself and know that you aren’t unknowingly over- or under-eating.

This amazing vitamin is a lipid-encapsulated form of vitamin C—meaning it’s surrounded by lipids—so it shuttles benefits into the blood stream in high concentrations without demanding digestion. It’s the upgraded version of the vitamin C we know and love.

How is Liposomal Vitamin C Better?

In short, liposomal vitamin C is the most absorbable and powerful form of vitamin C—that’s why we call it supercharged! It’s nearly as beneficial and direct as intravenous delivery of the vitamin, but it comes in a convenient oral form so that you can easily integrate it into your everyday diet and supplement routine. What’s more, this kind of vitamin C can raise your blood concentration of vitamin C. It’s an excellent way to give your body a big-time boost of vitamin C when you need it the most, all without getting poked and prodded with a needle!

Here are a few of the benefits of adding liposomal vitamin C to your diet:

3 Health Hacks For Summer

Today we offer you a guest blog written by a good friend of ours Scott Laird.  Scott is a Naturopath and works for a great organization called A Rood Awakening.  Enjoy his excellent writing!

3 Summer Health Hacks

by Scott Laird, ND

Usually, when someone sees or hears the term “hack” they think of a quick fix or a magic bullet that will solve all their problems. That’s not what we’re talking about here.

If you’re already familiar with the Hallelujah Diet, so you know that any truly effective change to one’s health is a lifestyle change, not a quick fix. Fad diets or a 3-day cleanse here and there miss the point, and they won’t work in the long run.

However, if you’ve made a decision to leave behind your old diet and lifestyle for good, there are indeed some quick things you can do to give your healthy new lifestyle a kickstart or even improve the healthy, Hallelujah Diet journey you’re already on. Here are 3 health “hacks” you can add to your regimen this summer:

1. Never eat wheat-based products after sun exposure.

If you spend enough time in the sun to cause sunburn, you have created competition within your body for Vitamin F (essential fatty acids, best source of which is safflower oil although olive oil is a good option, too).

Here’s what happens… your body uses Vitamin F to maintain skin health, but it also uses it to absorb nutrients from wheat. If you get

Causes of Vitamin D Deficiency

Vitamins play an incredible role in our bodies’ most complex processes, and vitamin D (which is actually a hormone) is one of the biggest superheroes in the vitamin squad! This fat-soluble vitamin, which is sometimes called the sunshine vitamin because it comes from the body’s interaction with the sun, helps the body battle disease, assist in weight loss and stabilize the mood. But, for a variety of reasons we’ll cover below, many people don’t get enough vitamin D, leading to vitamin D deficiency or D-ficiency. If you have signs of a weak immune system, have difficulty losing weight or battle depression, boosting your vitamin D intake through supplements and safe sun exposure may be a great first step in treatment.

Why Vitamin D Matters

So why is vitamin D so important? The body requires this vitamin to absorb calcium and grow a strong, healthy musculoskeletal system, and not getting enough can cause soft, fragile and misshapen bones and rickets disease in children. According to the National Institutes of Health, studies indicate that low vitamin D levels are associated with serious and life-threatening diseases, including colon cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment and asthma in children.

Vitamin D is also thought to help reduce depression and anxiety. Studies show a significant connection between vitamin D and mental health, indicating that lower vitamin D levels correlate with higher levels of depression. There is also thought to be a connection between Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)—a disorder triggering depression due to

The Best Ways to Consume More Probiotics


The body is filled with bacteria. Live bacteria and yeasts are beneficial for overall health and though probiotics are most commonly bacteria, they can also survive and operate as yeast. Maintaining a balance of both good and bad bacteria is important for maintaining proper function of many body systems, specifically in regards to oral and digestive health.

According to our Hallelujah Acres experts, there are two ways to obtain these necessary microorganisms: Either from fermented food sources or by taking a high quality supplement.

Consuming Probiotics Naturally
For followers of the primarily raw, plant-based Genesis 1:29 diet, cultured foods are a great way to consume probiotics naturally.

“Cultured foods are a great source of probiotics that don’t kill live enzymes.”

According to our experts, cultured foods are a great source of probiotics as they are a way to consume the hard-to-absorb nutrients from raw foods, while still keeping the enzymes alive. This is because there is no heat involved in the fermenting process – also known as culturing. Thus, the enzymes remain and a number of other health benefits are also added. Improving digestion, cultured vegetables can also provide omega-3 fatty acids, B vitamins and many bioavailable minerals and vitamins.

Common cultured foods include sauerkraut made from fermented cabbage, pickles and tempeh, according to the Global Healing Center. Also popular for fermenting are carrots, kale, celery, turnips, onions, leeks, beans and parsnips.

However, though keeping a balance of bacteria is crucial for proper functioning, it is not always viable today. Not everyone is able to get an adequate amount of fermented food in their diet.

“From creation, the human body was designed to have a harmonious relationship with bacteria,” explained Hallelujah Health Acres health expert Olin Idol. “Bacteria are not our enemy in general. They reside on our skin, in our bodies, most predominately in our colon where they perform a host of functions – the production of B12 being one of them. Unfortunately, our diets and living conditions today are not conducive to supporting a healthy balance of these friendly bacteria. Rather than being in predominance, [bacteria] often fall to a minority and are unable to carry out the required functions, especially the production of B12.”

Probiotic Supplements
Did you know that there should be close to three pounds of bacteria in a healthy functioning intestinal tract? Though it may sound like a lot, it’s what’s needed to aid in the day-to-day function and maintenance of your immune system, according to “Unravel the Mystery” by Ann Malkmus. And of those three pounds of bacteria, 85 percent should be “friendly” flora. Though as Idol explained above, the production of B12 is no longer predominant in most Americans.

“Thus, we need to rebuild our friendly flora through discrete probiotic supplementation and raw fermented foods or we need to supplement with vitamin B12,” said Idol.

If you’re looking for a B12 supplement, Hallelujah Acre’s B-Flax-D is a great choice. Regular use of B-Flax-D can help ensure that you are obtaining a sufficient amount of vitamin B12, which helps in healthy cell formation, aids in preventing anemia and nerve damage and serves as an important component of overall health.

If you're not getting enough probiotics through cultured foods such as sauerkraut, probiotic supplements are key.If you’re not getting enough probiotics through cultured foods such as sauerkraut, probiotic supplements are key.

Another option is probiotic supplements, which must have a high level of bacteria, such as our Professional Strength Probiotics. While many products available today merely claim that their capsules will make it all the way through the colon where they are intended to go, very few do. The Hallelujah Diet® Professional Strength Probiotic however, does in fact deliver up to 60 percent of its bacteria to the colon. Coating the GI tract with immune-fighting bacteria, these capsules can help to shield you from the bad bacteria that cause disease. Moreover, they’ll help you relieve discomfort related to the digestive system.

4 Ways to Protect Your Liver

Your liver is one of the largest and most important organs in your body. According to the Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care, the liver converts the nutrients in foods you consume into beneficial proteins and substances for cells when they need them. Additionally, it takes unnatural, toxic substances – such as alcohol – and turns them into harmless materials before they disperse throughout the body.

Unfortunately, 3.9 million adults were diagnosed with liver disease in 2015 according to a national health survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Of those diagnoses, deaths totaled 40,326. Common causes of the disease include viruses, alcohol use and obesity.

“Common causes of liver disease include viruses, alcohol use and obesity.”

Because the liver plays such a vital role in keeping your body in top shape, it’s important to give it the same love and care it provides for you. Here are four natural ways to protect your liver:

1. Cut the Unhealthy Habits
The liver is the body’s natural filtration system. When you follow bad habits, this critical organ becomes overworked and may not be able to process toxins efficiently. Drinking alcohol, for example, can disrupt the metabolism of the liver and lead to inflammation that causes scarring, also known as cirrhosis. Cutting this unhealthy habit will put less pressure on your liver and keep it in better shape.

2. Drink Coffee
Drinking a cup of coffee can give you that jolt of energy you crave in the

The Remarkable Antioxidant Benefits of Liposomal Vitamin C

Most people know that vitamin C is essential for proper immune function. It can protect against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, pregnancy health complications, eye disease, skin wrinkling…the list goes on. But did you know that the body cannot produce this essential vitamin on its own? It also doesn’t store vitamin C, making it critical to consider supplementation. Since you can’t rely on your body to produce, store or synthesize this vitamin, you must get it from your food or from dietary supplements. One great source is a recently developed, remarkable option: liposomal vitamin C.

Despite the advantages of taking a multivitamin or getting your vitamin C through various nutritious foods, liposomal vitamin C offers another way to absorb this immune-boosting vitamin, and it may be the most beneficial. It’s a lipid-encapsulated form of vitamin C that is shuttled without digestion into the bloodstream, right into the cells of the body. This makes it the most absorbable form of the vitamin available.

“Fall is on it’s way and flu season is near. Vitamin C is necessary.”

Now’s the perfect time to educate yourself about vitamin C and learn about the best way to boost your immunity and support healthy aging.

Top Summer Superfoods of the Garden

As the summer winds down and the farmer’s markets ramp up, we thought you would enjoy a little guidance on which of the fruits and veggies you find at the farmer’s markets would be the best to consume while they are in season:


These garden greats grow en masse in summertime and you can just taste their goodness. Their high levels of the antioxidant lycopene are known for possible prevention of several types of cancers, so eat them up this and every summer. The summer tomatoes have the best flavor you will ever find.


She’s the Queen of summer fruits. Extra-hydrating, super tasty and yes, really good for you. Loaded with energizing vitamins B and C, watermelons are also anti-inflammatory. Think bug bites, allergies, and that ankle sprain from the tennis game.  Watermelon is a good source of potassium and works as an antioxidant. It helps fight certain types of cancers and contributes to heart health. 


Summer is berry season and no matter which ones you call favorite, they’re loaded with super goodness to keep you vibrant and healthy all season long. Studies have also linked a dietary increase in antioxidant-rich foods to better protection against the sun’s harmful rays. In fact, blueberries are nutritional superstars, filled with fiber, vitamin C, and cancer-fighting compounds. Blueberry phytochemicals inhibit growth and metastatic potential of MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells.

Reducing Your Risk for Prostate Cancer


Prostate cancer affects a large portion of the U.S. population. According to the National Cancer Institute, there were 3,120,176 men living with prostate cancer in 2015. Generally, the average man has an 11.2 percent risk of developing the disease at some point in life. However, poor diet and a lack of exercise can increase the risk.

Here are a few tips on how to reduce your risk of prostate cancer:

Get your fats from plants

According to the Mayo Clinic, men who eat high-fat diets have a greater risk of prostate cancer than men who eat low-fat diets. In addition to eliminating fatty animal products from your meals, you should attempt to get all of your fats from plants. This keeps in line with God’s Original Diet  from Genesis 1:29, which is completely plant-based. Olive oil, nuts and seeds are great sources of vegetable-derived fats.

Eat more fruits and vegetables

Fruits and vegetables should make an appearance in each of the day’s meals. Compared to processed foods that are common in the American Standard Diet, plants contain many more nutrients and no harmful preservatives.

Healthline recommended eating natural foods that are red in color. Red foods such as tomatoes and watermelon get their distinct color from a nutrient called lycopene, which is also an antioxidant. Other foods that contain lycopene are: grapefruit, papaya, red cabbage, mango and carrot.

Foods high in the anti-oxidant lycopene could help to reduce your risk of cancer. Reduce or eliminate dairy products

Tips for Optimal Oral Health

Your oral health is more important than you think. Bad breath, irritated gums, soreness, and cavities found in your teeth can pose even greater risks to your well-being. Referring to the mouth as the “window to your overall health,” MayoClinic reported that poor dental hygiene can lead to endocarditis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and other debilitating diseases.

To ensure your mouth remains healthy and creates a thriving gateway to the rest of your body, consider the following tips for optimal oral health:

Practice Healthy Oral Habits
Your parents likely drilled brushing and flossing into your head as a child. You must continue following these health oral habits as you age, and consider implementing them into your routine more often. Brush twice a day and floss at least once, whether it be in the morning before work or at night right before bed.

“Water flossers use high pressured water to remove plaque from teeth.”

If you’ve struggled to keep up with a flossing regimen in the past, you may consider a different option for cleaning between your teeth. Water flossers use high pressured water to remove plaque from teeth, making it less difficult to floss for those with arthritis.

Visit your Dentist Regularly
Your day-to-day home regimen may be working for you, but it’s not enough for keeping your oral health completely in check. Visiting the dentist on a regular basis is key to overall wellness. When you visit an oral specialist, he or she can check for cavities, determine

7 Easiest Vegetables to Grow at Home (Small-Space Picks Included!)

We all can benefit from strengthening the connection to our food, where they were grown, and how they end up on our plates.

One of the golden standards for deepening this connection to our food is to grow it ourselves! Gardening comes in so many forms, large scale gardens taking up acres of land to having a small windowsill garden in your kitchen. And yet, both beneficial and supporting your health no matter how big or small you can garden.

If you’ve been following my personal journey for the past year, you know that my husband and I are changing our lifestyles and moving out in the forest of TN so live more sustainably and homestead. This process is a dream come true and one that includes gardening!

Through this journey I’ve learned so many tips, tricks, and basic skills to make gardening and growing your own food incredibly joyful and easy. Here are what I’m deeming as the top easiest vegetables to grow.

Why You Should Try Growing Your Own Foods

If you’re able to grow your own food, then this practice is a must!

If you’re unable to grow your own food or simply aren’t lit up by the idea after you try it out once, then the next best action to take is to seek out your local farmers and support them by signing up for a local CSA where you can reap all the health benefits of consuming local and fresh produce and support farmers.

What are Superfoods and How You Can Use Them to Elevate Your Meals

Superfoods can be a fun way to add a boost of nutrients or the Flavor Factor to your meals.

While they’re not necessary to eat healthfully and you don’t need to run out and buy all of the fancy super powders thinking they’ll transform your health and wellbeing, it is always fun to try new foods or to add a little something to your day that can give you extra nutrients. That’s exactly what superfoods can do for you!

In this article, I’ll share what superfoods are, when you should use them, and eight common superfoods that you could try if you’re ready to play with adding some to your life.

What Are Superfoods?

A superfood is a food that’s particularly rich in compounds like antioxidants, fiber, or fatty acids, that are especially beneficial to one’s health. Pretty broad, right? Well, it all comes down to the claimed health-boosting properties that food has and nourishing benefits you might gain from it.

Spinach and kale could be considered superfoods thanks to their abundance of vitamins and minerals and all the health-promoting pay-offs you get from eating them. The same goes for a green juice that’s filled with superfoods. Also, things like adaptogens — aka medicinal mushrooms, herbs, and spices often used in Eastern medicine — can be considered superfoods and ones we’ve used in plenty of recipes on Nutrition Stripped too.
