Trainer Tuesday- What are some foods that are healthier than you think?

Posted: 04/15/2014

A food that is healthier than you think is mushrooms. Not only do they add flavor to recipes, but mushrooms are the only vegetable source of vitamin D. In addition, many popular mushroom varieties like white and portabella are good sources of B vitamins like riboflavin and niacin!-Sara

With fad diets and crazes and new reports on the news all the time it's hard to know what's real and what's not when it comes to the nutrition content of food. One particular food that had been pretty much demonized to many dieters is the egg, and more specifically the egg's yolk, because of concerns of cholesterol and 'bad fats'. While it is true that egg yolks do contain cholesterol, they also contain 80-90% or more of many micro-and macronutrients, and much of the protein and essential fats and are a good addition to many diets. –Kristen

While they are a nutritional powerhouse full of protein, healthy fat, vitamins and minerals eggs continue to have a bad reputation in some circles. While it is true they are high in cholesterol the host of health benefits they provide can outweigh the downside for most people.  Great as a part of breakfast you can also hard boil them and you have a convenient snack! - Keith

Trainer Ruesday- What are some good methods to use when grocery shopping?

Posted: 02/04/2014

In addition to doing the majority of your shopping around the perimeter of the store, and making a list before going in there are a few other tricks I use while grocery shopping.  Make sure to never go grocery shopping when hungry will help cut down in impulse buys, items that may just appeal to you because you are hungry.  Also try to avoid purchasing items that have ingredients you can't pronounce.  Chances are that means the food has been heavily processed.-Keith

 

A good strategy to use at the grocery store is to start by doing all of your shopping on the outside perimeter of the store. This is where all of the fresh and less processed foods are. Another good strategy to use is to make a list and stick to it. You will not only save money this way by not buying things you don't need, but you will also be less tempted to by things that are not as healthy. –Sara

 

When I shop at the grocery store I always stick to a set list. That way I do not buy anything I shouldn't be eating or anything that will be a bad choice later on. I like to purchase chicken, sweet potatoes, frozen veggies, fresh fruit and nuts, among other healthy things. -Andy
