Looking around the Earth Day corner

by Bea James, senior manager of organic, natural and sustainable programs
Monday, April 21, 2014

I love Earth Day because it recalibrates me back to living sustainably as best I can! It also gets me thinking about all the things on the horizon when it comes to living green, including my food choices. Below are some of the top food trends that I predict will be leading the way to a healthier future.

National Nutrition Month is coming to an end, but really, isn’t every month nutrition month? Here are some important things you can do for your health year round.

Flexitarian: the meat eating vegetarian

When I first heard the term flexitarian, I thought someone was inviting me to do a new form of yoga. Nope, not at all. As a matter of fact, the only thing I had to flex was my mind by opening it to this relatively new concept.

A flexitarian is someone that’s a vegetarian and a carnivore, but not at the same meal.

May is International Mediterranean Diet Month, a chance to focus attention on one of the world's healthiest (and most delicious) diets.

In February, 2013, a major clinical trial was published in The New England Journal of Medicine showing a 30 percent risk reduction for heart attacks and strokes with the Mediterranean diet. In April, 2013, a second large scale study was published in Neurology that showed following the Mediterranean Diet was associated with lower risk of memory and cognitive impairment. With new evidence, this topic has been especially hot.

How to juice your produce

Did you know for a moderately active adult male, the Center for Disease Control recommends eating two and a half cups of fruit and four cups of vegetables per day? Even though I’m surrounded by fruits and vegetables as a produce manager, I still find it difficult to make sure I’m getting enough of these foods in my diet.

That was until I discovered a simple and fun solution to the problem: juice them! Juicing is a great way to get all of the benefits of a diet rich in fruits and vegetables without having to prepare them. Not only that, but it gives you the opportunity to reap the health benefits of vegetables you may not enjoy eating.
