Five-a-day of fruit and veg is good, but '10 is better'
Conclusion This research supports the idea that the more fruit and veg you eat the better – at least, up to 10 portions (800g) a day. It also suggests the number of people who die early might be reduced if they were to eat more than the current recommended guideline daily amount. However, before we take this at face value, there are some important considerations: There are likely to be many confounding factors that may have affected the results. It might be that people who eat a lot of fruit and veg are also more likely to be physically active, consume less alcohol, not smoke and be a healthy weight...

Fresh From Farms to Schools -- It Just Makes Sense
As the person in charge of ordering food for the Dallas school system, Dora Rivas certainly knew that the fruits and vegetables provided to her students came from farms. She just didn't know which farms. Or, more specifically, where those farms were located. Near Dallas? In Texas, even? Those questions came up almost three years ago when her team applied for a federal Farm to School grant to help pay for locally-grown produce to be delivered to schools. What's happened since has changed everything from the way kids are learning to what they are eating. Educators have happily learned some lessons, too. The result is ...

What Being a Vegan Runner Means to Me
It takes only one word, really: this lifestyle, to me, is a practice. I use the word in the way it's commonly employed in the context of meditation, yoga, philosophy, or even religion -- where "practice" means an activity done for its own sake, something that is not at first pleasurable (and in fact is often quite difficult) but that is unquestionably worthwhile for the foundation of character that it builds. Worthwhile, ultimately, because it purifies the soul. Many runners run for the joy of running. Many vegans, since coming to this diet, have discovered a love for food and cooking they didn't know existed. ...

Pumpkin: More Than Just Pie
We carve faces in them and love the pies, but pumpkin, it turns out, is actually a very nutritious gourd with so many great beneficial components that can make it a great side dish to many meals, much like sweet potatoes, only without a blood sugar spike. It's in the same plant family as squash, cucumber and melons, very similar to butternut squash, yet it's mostly forgotten and left out of our diet. Its bright orange color denotes a rich content of carotenoids, the precursors to vitamin A. Nurses Health Studies indicate that a diet high in carotenoids can decrease the risk of cataracts and cancer. Pumpkin is chock full ...
