How to Make a Nutrition Handout

Want to make an engaging and memorable nutrition handout? There’s no need to re-invent the wheel — we’ve been testing and tweaking our handout templates for years. Put our research to work for you today, with this free handout template!


Whole Food Diet for Heart Health

Choose a whole foods approach that pays equal attention to the types of foods consumed as well as types of foods to exclude.


A New Spin on Beets

Try this new spin on beets today!


MyPlate Activity Ideas

The following activity ideas are excerpted from the new book, MyPlate for Everyone, which is coming soon from Food and Health Communications!


Fruit and Diabetes

People with diabetes shouldn’t be afraid of fruit! Fruit is packed with vitamins and minerals, including antioxidants. It also contains dietary fiber, which fills you up and helps with blood sugar control. Fruit’s sweet taste makes it a natural and healthful dessert too.


Enjoy Summer Produce!

This amazing salad was inspired by a trip to Berkeley Bowl, where fresh produce spans the aisle as far as the eye can see. Use it in your Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month celebrations!


The Skinny on Protein

High-protein, low-carbohydrate diets are back in the spotlight, thanks to the Paleo, South Beach and Atkins trends. While protein is a necessary nutrient for the body in order to build lean muscle, synthesize hormones, grow hair and nails, and maintain organs, information about how much protein we really need and in what form seems to be misleading and/or lacking. Here’s the skinny…


Dietary Consistency

Have you fallen into the all-or-nothing trap where you eat perfectly one day and abandon healthful eating the next? Is a vacation or holiday a happy excuse to overindulge in foods that you’ve labeled as taboo?


Make Dessert Delightful!

This shortcake is amazingly simple. It uses a small slice of cake along with a lot of fresh fruit and just a little whipping cream. It is delightful, not sinful!!


Women and Iron: What You Need to Know

Get everything you need to know about iron in one handy post!


The Skinny on Sugar

Research synonyms for sugar and you find “sweet” and “dearest.” But ask most fad diet enthusiasts, and they will associate sugar with “evil,” “toxin,” and even “poison.” Too much of anything is no good, but vilifying this carbohydrate without distinguishing between natural sugar and refined sugar has gone too far. Here’s the real skinny on sugar.
