Milk: Is It Truly A Key Component of The Human Diet?

This blog was written by Kristy Cooper who used to manage our office.  Kristy was a valuable member of our team with great insight and we wanted to share her interesting perspective on consuming milk with you!  Originally posted on March 24, 2015.From a young age we are taught that it's important to "drink your milk" as it's a major source of calcium and vitamin D necessary to promote growth along with strong bones and teeth. I have come to wonder if this is particularly true. I've heard many things painting dairy in a negative light, ranging from dairy causing acne, to vocal...

This is an old blog of ours written by Tammy Marie Rose.  She shares some valuable information!

It has become this sort of monster, this awful thing in...

So, when we are grocery shopping how do we ensure that we are getting healthy wheat?Well, it is not easy! There is a lot of deception in our food industry. In my opinion whole grains are definitely healthy...

Breakfast Matters

Mom always said that breakfast was the most important meal of the day. Some people think that was just an old wives' tale, but recent research says otherwise. Studies have shown that people who start the day with a good breakfast burn more fat and have more stable blood sugar levels all day long. And the definition of a "good" breakfast includes, according to the United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA) website, ChooseMyPlate.gov, whole grains. Whole grains may help lower your risk of heart disease, add valuable fiber to your diet, and are a good source of B vitamins, folic...
