Love Bacon AND Animals? 'Reducetarianism' May Be For You
What do you call a vegetarian who sometimes eats bacon? "Regular old failure" is one term that might come to mind, given that some 80 percent of self-identified vegetarians eventually go back to including meat in their diets, according to a 2014 study. Brian Kateman has a more positive spin. And he has a plan, to help folks who'd like to reap the benefits of vegetarianism -- like better health, improving the environment and reducing animal cruelty -- without entirely giving up their pork. It's called reducetarianism, and it's got an attendant hashtag -- #lessmeat -- that basically says it all. "Part of...

9 Foods That Keep You Feeling Full Longer
SPECIAL FROM Next Avenue By Linda Melone Sticking to a low-calorie diet in an effort to lose weight immediately presents one big challenge: hunger. When you’re hungry you’ll grab the quickest food within reach and forget all your good intentions. It’s one reason why only one out of five people can last a month before falling off the diet wagon, according to a British survey. The foods you choose, however, can make all the difference between feeling hungry again within a half hour and being satisfied for several hours. “Key components of highly satisfying foods are protein and fiber,” say...

Your Sugar Might Be Made With Animal Bones. Sorry, Vegans.
Marshmallows, beer and even some orange juices are not considered vegan foods. And, depending on one's definition of "vegan," neither are some sugars. Refined sugar -- the kind that's added to coffee, cookie dough and cake batter -- is made from either sugarcane or sugar beets. The two have near-identical nutritional facts and tastes, and they are used about equally in the States. But, their refining process is different. To manufacture table sugar from sugarcane, sugarcane stalks are crushed to separate the juice from the pulp. The juice is processed and heated to crystalize, and is then filtered and bleached w...

3 Painless Ways to Start Eating Right When Nothing Else Will Work
You know what you're supposed to eat. You don't need another blog post telling you this food is good and that one is bad... those rules seem to change every day anyway. (Hint: "Eat whole foods" is one that's a constant.) It's not that you don't want to eat healthy. You even understand that, over time, your taste buds will adjust, and you'll actually crave raw fruits and vegetables while becoming less interested in processed and fried foods. You know how important it is. Not just for you, but for your family. And that if you don't start soon, it'll one day be urgent. And -- maybe -- too late. And yet you can't...

Vegetarian diet 'could have slight benefits in diabetes'
Conclusion This systematic review has identified six trials assessing whether vegetarian or vegan diets improve blood sugar control in type 2 diabetes compared with control. It found the vegetarian or vegan diet gave significant improvement in one measure of blood sugar control (HbA1c), but not in another (fasting blood glucose). However, there are some important limitations to consider before we can categorically conclude that people with type 2 diabetes should switch to a meat and fish-free diet: The improvement in blood sugar control was quite small The pooled results of five trials found a vegetarian or vegan diet wa...

It may not always seem like it, but this is a golden age of imagination and invention. That's not to say that the world isn't sick with violence, poverty and misrule. It surely is. But, long ago, our species of great ape left the others far behind, reinventing ourselves as explorers, builders, communicators, artists and dreamers. That's never been truer than today, as creative minds toil in the service of the planet and others. Because climate change, poverty, and famine are complex worldwide problems, they're inspiring equally complex, world-changing solutions. It's now possible to pursue a career in, say, engineering, ...
