Lentils are loaded with protein, iron, and fiber—so they’re one of my go-to ingredients for a satisfying salad! This one features cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, and feta, plus, a bright and zippy vinaigrette.
Could this be the perfect summer salad? Loaded with fresh corn, tomatoes, and avocado (plus, a killer dressing) this dish is all about celebrating seasonal ingredients. Bring it to your next picnic or cookout…or throw it together any night you want an (almost) no-cook side. Pro tip: Serve on its own or on top of a bed of arugula.
When we think about eating well, we often think about what we should eat to nourish our bodies, get enough energy, protect our hearts, manage our weight…and that’s all super important! But, did you know food also has a really big impact on our brain health and function, including our mental wellbeing?
Acid reflux, resulting in heartburn, is incredibly common these days. In fact, as many as 60 million Americans experience heartburn at least once a month. So if you’re no stranger to some mad, fiery reflux—you are not alone! And, the great news is, there are ways to prevent and treat heartburn that have nothing to do with medications like PPIs or our old friend Pepto.
While autoimmune diseases are common these days, they’re also commonly misunderstood. Their symptoms can sometimes masquerade as other conditions, making them harder to diagnose. And while treating autoimmunity with immune-suppressing drugs is sometimes helpful and necessary, often these treatments merely address the symptoms, not the root cause of autoimmunity. Because the truth is, autoimmunity can be managed and even reversed (yes!) by using nutrition and other lifestyle changes.
