A low-glycemic-load diet that also adheres to the principles of the traditional Mediterranean style of eating appears to reduce the risk for type 2 diabetes by about 20%, new prospective research shows.
My name is Lisa Tsakos, Registered Holistic Nutritionist, corporate speaker and author. This blog provides professional advice from a nutrition and weight loss expert (me!) about corporate and family health. Here you'll find recipes and articles that address work-related challenges like eating on-the-go and maximizing your productivity with the right foods. You'll also find out about how you can help your children develop strong immune systems and healthy bodies. As a nutrition instructor, I often found myself thinking, "When I have kids, this is how I will feed them." With two toddlers, I have the opportunity to practice what I have been preaching and to try out my theories. So far, they seem to be working!

The newest edition of Label Lessons reveals the hidden, scary ingredients in back-to-school convenience foods and provides healthier alternatives that taste just as great (if not better) and are just as convenient!
Mott's Flavoured Applesauce - Mango Peach, for example, contains high-fructose corn syrup (called glucose/fructose in Canada) and yellow 6, an artificial dye that is known to cause poor behaviour in some children! Feeding that to a child who is expected to behave in a quiet classroom might be asking for trouble!
Unjunk Your Kid's Lunchbox reviews a range of favourite foods for school-aged kids, including sandwich breads (and gluten-free bread), fruit juices, cereal, cookies, and even provides a recipe for the newest lunchtime trend - bento box lunches.
