Hunkering down to watch sports on TV usually involves grabbing the traditional grub - chicken wings, sliders, nachos, that sort of stuff.
Earlier this month, a group of five Tribune employees, me included, took up the Club 1 Fitness Challenge, and are working on changing the food we eat to develop healthier lifestyles. Okay--we're on a diet. But you're not supposed to say "diet" anymore, right? But we're working on coming up with good tasting, easy to make dishes. With this in mind, I'm extending that to the meals I make my family and friends.
This week I passed a major milestone. You may remember me mentioning a couple months back about the big plateau.
When it's cold outside, I love making soup for supper. Everything goes into a single pot, starting with an aromatic broth and a substantial array of vegetables, then a little bit of protein, and finally a crispy garnish. And when dinner's over, there's only that one pot to wash!
WASHINGTON (AP) - Some of the nation's largest food companies have cut daily calorie counts by an average of 78 per person, a new study says, more than four times the amount the industry pledged to slash by next year.
(BPT) - An ever increasing body of academic research is showing that the current level of salt Americans consume is not only perfectly healthy but that adopting low-salt recommendations will actually harm people. The most recent example of this is a review of all available research on salt and health by the Institute for Medicine (IOM).
One of the questions I get regularly asked about my Paleo diet is how I can survive in America's bread basket without bread. This actually has been kind of a challenge for me, but not because I miss the taste of bread.
(BPT) - Only 8 percent of people who make New Year's resolutions actually achieve their goals, according to a recent study by the University of Scranton. This year, instead of making a promise to lose weight, make small but impactful changes to the way you eat to ensure you reach your resolution goal.
Maybe you have a business to run, a degree to complete, a trip to take, children to raise, or any combination of those or similar duties.
The Friday before Christmas we had a "treat your coworker day" - basically a food sharing day. I expected a lavish spread of sweets, to which I was prepared to avoid. I, of course, brought Paleo alternatives - good but not sweet.
Great Bend Tribune Managing Editor Dale Hogg and his wife, Volunteers in Action Volunteer Coordinator Linn Hogg, have embarked on this two-month lifestyle change experiment as a couple. This is their final update on how it all went.
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Office workers in search of snacks will be counting calories along with their change under new labeling regulations for vending machines included in President Barack Obama's health care overhaul law.
WASHINGTON - There's more disappointing news about multivitamins: Two major studies found popping the pills didn't protect aging men's brains or help heart attack survivors.
NEW YORK - Take another look at that food label. An ingredient or two may have vanished.
A few weeks ago, I sent out a request to all of you to send me your best soup recipes. After going through the first real cold snap, I realized that my soup recipe collection was woefully lacking on soups acceptable on the Paleo diet. Most of the soups I make are loaded with noodles, dumplings or beans, which I must confess, I thoroughly enjoy.
