Egg Replacement

Whether you need a vegan alternative or you do not have eggs on hand, these egg substitutes can help stabilize your baked good. • I have tried flaxseeds, applesauce, and banana in various items with success, but note that these substitutes will affect the taste and texture of the end product. • It's good to have options! • Eat Well, Live Well

Produce Stickers

The numbered stickers on your produce are called PLU ("price look-up") codes and they are used to identify produce. If you see a 4 digit number beginning with a "3" or "4" that means that the produce was conventionally grown (fertilizers, pesticides, etc were likely used to encourage things like pest or weather resistance, out of season growth and higher yields). Stickers that have 5 digits and that begin with a "9" represent organic produce (95% - or more- free of synthetic chemical or additive and cannot be GMO engineered). Eat Well, Live Well.

Variety Is Key

One of the best things we can do to ensure that we are eating a balanced diet is to have variety in our meals and snacks. This allows us to consume different nutrients from each food group

New Year, New You #2019

I hope you all had a lovely New Year! This is the time to refresh, recharge and reevaluate our goals in life. Whether it be more physical activity, healthier eating patterns, better managing your overall health or any another plan, it is possible with focus and persistence! What are some of your goals for 2019? One of mine is maintaining a healthy outlet for stress (yoga has been a new outlet for me)! Eat Well, Live Well
