Condiments are typically overlooked, or brushed off as “harmless,” or eaten in such small quantities that they're considered freebies. (I mean it's only a spoonful right?) They make bland foods taste better and good foods taste great. But they can also turn an otherwise nutritious meal into a metabolic nightmare, one tablespoon at a time. Small, frequent doses of potentially harmful ingredients can be far from benign, having a significant negative effect on the body. In fact, there is scientific evidence that more significant health effects may occur at low doses than high, especially for hormone-disrupting chemicals.
We are what we eat! Certainly food plays a major part in our life, punctuating nearly our every move. Often what we eat and drink determines how we organize our time, plan our social outings, and even sometimes it tells us what emotions to feel. (It's that powerful) As part of our relationship to food, we often talk about being on a "DIET." But have you ever wondered where the dreaded word originates?

For a long time, we thought avocados were good for nothing but ready-made guac and a decent California burger every now and then. But these little nutritional hand grenades were having an explosive impact on our diets for all that time. How so? They’re infused with a key nutrient for maintaining healthy weight: FAT. Wait…fat can help us maintain our weight? You mean to tell me, that dietary fat doesn’t make us fat? EXACTLY. Seriously though, fat is not something to avoid. For starters, it’s essential for normal growth and development. Dietary fat also
Okay so we've touched on protein, but what about all my "CARBOHOLICS" out there? Where's the love right? ;) Don't worry, this one is for you. Truth be told, carbohydrates (good and bad) are such a controversial topic when it comes to fat loss. Their hormonal impact is HUGE and you'd be surprised to know that contrary to popular belief, carbohydrates aren't all bad! With so many carbohydrate trends out there, it gets increasingly difficult to make smart choices. Truth be told, what type, what amount, and when we eat carbs has a significant impact
What Does Protein Do? In terms of the overall health and function of the human body, protein is essential for building and repairing things. Your organs, muscles, skin, hair, nails, bones and certain hormones are all made up of some amount of protein. It’s an absolute requirement for sustaining life and proper function of the human body.
