Eat Right to Live Right

Jun 17, 2008
A mother in South Florida is challenging the idea that healthy food maybe too expensive by putting up a group that helps other members in buying food straight from the organic produce farmers. Donna Kass is the Organic Produce Buying Club of South Florida's Pinecrest group's host.

The members think it's a great deal because it's cheaper than Whole Foods, Wild Oats, even Publix. The group was originally put up by Jayme Rosenbaum because a lot of people were unable to buy organic produce due to high prices. Since they 've cut the middleman, and bought food from the source, it's cheaper.

As we mentioned a few days ago, schools were having problems in financing healthy food options in the cafeteria. The best way that your children can help them and themselves is by packing lunch. How does this serve the school? It allows them to buy less food if they notice that fewer people were buying from the them.

School owners are now in a quandary: do they serve the more expensive healthy food or the less expensive not-so healthy ones? It's economics vs. nutrition now as educators are stuck between a rock and a hard place.

There's a fine line line between eating health and obsessing over the matter. Add to this the "paranoia" regarding eating particular foods and advising them to totally deleting them out of the kitchen for good, and you have orthorexia. No, it's not yet part of the manual for psychiatrists, but an alternative physician, Dr. Steven Bratman, phrased it in one of his books.

It's a condition when people focus too much of their time thinking about the virtue of what they eat rather than if it tastes good or not. Not only can they be irritating to the people around them, but also they pose a danger to themselves by pushing themselves to disordered eating.

Writing articles for a living sometimes make you drink and eat the weirdest things. In order to research and write more, you have to be awake; and you know what that means...yes, coffee multiple mugs of it. Caffeine is supposedly a writer's drug of choice. However, it isn't healthy. One more problem it causes is that once you're done, you can hardly fall asleep. And when that happens to you, you tend to feel hungry.

If you're a teenager, and you heard the word "exercise" , it may just not register. However, besides toning up your muscles, it also does other good things to you. Remember, you only need 60 minutes of vigorous exercise to be healthy.

From infancy, milk has been a dependable source of nutrients. Except for individuals with extreme lactose intolerance, people are encouraged to drink milk in a regular basis as a source of essential nutrients, aside from regular meals and supplements. Studies have shown that milk helps in maintaining bone health, and may also help prevent diabetes, hypertension, reduce risk for particular cancers, help ease pre-menstrual syndrome, and it has been proven to be beneficial for pregnant women.

Studies have shown that the ordinary teenager's reluctance to sleep early is biological in nature. Yes, parents, if your teen can't sleep earlier, it's not because he doesn't want to, but rather because he can't.
