Learning to Cook Nutritious Foods: Simple, Yet Seemingly Overwhelming

In recent months I’ve had the privilege of spending three to four hours every Tuesday morning with a very bright, helpful lady. It seems that at times providence is just plain serendipitous! This was certainly the case one Sunday after church when a member of our small parish politely asked if she might come visit […]

Signs of the Times

As our world advances, so too do the issues we deal with on a regular basis. Most of us are aware of the health concerns associated with sitting for too long. After so many years of the Standard American Diet (SAD), we know how important it is to get (and keep) our blood sugar levels […]

Type II Diabetes, Obesity, Butter, and Public Health: The More Things Change, the More They Stay the Same

A few days ago I received a request from the Diabetes Council of Hyde Park, NY, to be part of an “expert” panel (word used loosely in relationship to myself) on DIABETES, and provide a short article on the subject.  I decided to do it, and below is the article I provided them. Furthermore, I […]

How to Cure Picky Eaters, Part Two

This is the second and final part of my series on helping children eat nutritious food. For the first part in the series, please see “How to Cure Picky Eaters, Part One.” Getting persnickety eaters to enjoy a variety of nutritious foods can feel like a futile mission.  When you consider how many unhealthy influences […]

Stumbling Blocks to Healing: The “Yeah, But” Story

 I was recently going through my closed client files, some of which I’d not looked at for a few years. As I read each file, I suddenly felt nostalgic. It was akin to pulling out old boxes of family photos and simply sitting and pondering over each one of them. Some photos bring us a […]

Little Addicts

candy

Dad and I were standing next to the cake and candy table at my cousin Leah’s wedding, watching the couple’s first dance. Two little boys about 5 and 8 came up and frantically scanned the glass candy bowls. But all of the candy was gone. The 5-year-old spun around and stared up at us. “Where […]

Ancient Grain Primer: Taking a Closer Look at Nutrient Dense Grains

I recently had the privilege to write an article for the Weston A. Price Foundation titled “To Gluten or Not to Gluten,” and I was amazed to see so many responses of the not-so- favorable type. It didn’t take long to realize that I’d touched a very sensitive nerve with my suggestion that we stop […]

We’ll See You at Back to School!

It’s rare in this day and age to find people in the world of health and nutrition with as much experience and knowledge as Mark Anderson. For 44 years, Mr. Anderson has been educating health practitioners about the teachings of Dr. Royal Lee, the brilliant nutritional leader whose works have withstood the test of time. […]

Common Sense Reasons to Eat Organic Food

One of most heated debates about food these days is whether or not organic food is more nutritious than conventionally grown. No matter what side of the fence you’re on, it’s easy to find a study that will support your perspective. In my mind, there are some basic, common-sense reasons why we should eat as […]

Soda Habit: Breaking Up Ain’t Hard to Do

Back in the day, I was an avid soda drinker. And I’m not talking about just once in a while. I drank my share and your share and maybe even part of your best friend’s share. Growing up, I was almost never allowed this tempting beverage, so apparently I had to make up for it […]

Obesity Is a Disease—Are Refined Carbohydrates the Cause?

Burn more calories than you eat, and you’ll lose fat. This belief, known as the “calories-in, calories-out” theory, is an unquestioned principle of nutrition. We all buy it. And it makes sense—if we assume all calories behave the same in the body. Or, as the dietitians like to put it, “a calorie is a calorie,” […]

Can you eat your way to a healthier heart? Dr. Benjamin Sandler would answer with a resounding yes. His book, How to Prevent Heart Attacks, was published in 1958 by the Lee Foundation for Nutritional Research, yet his theories and advice are supported by recent research regarding diet and heart disease.

Get Off the Corn Syrup!

Where are the honeybees disappearing to? Scientists increasingly believe several interacting factors—from disease-carrying parasites to poor nutrition to pesticides—are responsible for the mass die-off. For instance, studies show that exposure to even nonfatal levels of neonicotinoids may make bees more susceptible to disease. But nothing makes a living creature more susceptible than malnutrition. Commercial beekeepers feed […]

Boys on Soy Formula

Soy infant formula should only be used as a last resort, says the Israeli Health Ministry, French Food Agency, German Institute of Risk Assessment, British Dietetic Association and other government health organizations around the world. As far back as 1999, warnings about soy and infant formula have rocked our world. In this shocking letter, two FDA toxicology experts officially […]
