Maca Root Tips

Many of us have heard of the term, “superfoods”. They have been quite the rave and the term has been tossed around quite a bit, particularly in the health/food industry. I’d like to ‘let you in on’ one of my favorite “superfoods”, Maca root. Maca is a root vegetable, of the crucifer family, originating from the high Andes mountains of Peru, growing at 7,000 to 11,000 feet, making it the highest altitude growing plant in the world. With this type of standing title, imagine what it does to your body when you consume it! Continue Reading…

Springtime Nutrition

On Saturdays HSK will publish an article on diet, nutrition and general well-being, written by nutritional consultant and chef, Laura B. Leff. Know why? because a healthy body with a spiritual mind is a blessed soul.

Spring is upon us; the much awaited time of year when flowers are abundant, lovers walk hand in hand on sun-kissed days, the sun sets later in the day…allowing more time to play, and the farmers’ markets fill up with delicious produce. As most of us know, eating in season is the most natural and nutritional way to eat. Seasonal eating provides you with the most nutritionally-dense foods, rendering the body with all it’s goodness when eaten! Being that our world is so globalized, sometimes it’s difficult to know what foods are in season and which ones are being shipped in from various parts of the world. Therefore, I’d like to let you in on what’s made for eatin’ this time of year, followed with some preparation tips. Continue Reading…

Are You Still Eating Fat-Free and Low Fat Foods?

Low & Fat Free Are Bad For You

On Saturdays HSK will publish an article on diet, nutrition and general well-being, written by nutritional consultant and chef, Laura B. Leff. Know why? because a healthy body with a spiritual mind is a blessed soul.

I would like to clear things up about fat-free and low-fat foods. The hype around these foods started in the 80s and it still has a bit of a hold in the food industry.

Fat isn’t good for us, right? Wrong!

The issue around these foods is that you are stripping away the fat, which is the main satiating macronutrient. Fat assists in sending hormonal signals to our brain to let us know that we are satisfied. What happens when those signals aren’t met? You guessed it; you keep on eating because you’re not satisfied. Psychologically people tend to think that they can eat more of the fat-free or low-fat products, but in hindsight, you end up overeating and the body stores those extra calories as fat in the body. Causing you to become fatter. Crazy, huh? Continue Reading…
