    Aldi is known for selling quality food at great prices. The popular chain is also an excellent place for low-carb and keto eaters to stock up on healthy and convenient staples. For the most part, we focused on whole or minimally processed foods. Aldi has some more processed low-carb fare, such as their fan-favorite L’oven Fresh Keto Bread, which many people find helpful when trying to reduce their carb intake. However, the best eating advice — no matter what type of diet you’re adhering to — is to reduce your intake of ultra-processed packaged foods and focus instead   Read More

    The #1 Healthiest Fast-Food Chicken Sandwich, Says Dietitian

    For many people, the main attraction at their local fast food restaurant isn’t the burgers or fries—it’s the chicken.

    Health Benefits of Legumes – The Healthiest Beans for Your Diet

    “Beans, beans, the magical fruit … “ Yeah, yeah, yeah—we’ve all heard this little ditty (which has certainly stood the test of time since my kids now sing it themselves).

    Choosing to avoid meat and eat a plant-based diet has never seemed so virtuous and necessary. Between the intrinsic cruelty of industrial livestock production and livestock’s climate footprint—estimated by the U.N.’s Food and Agriculture Organization to be 14.5{c33c21346ff5e26ab8e0ae3d29ae4367143f0d27c235e34c392ea37decdb8bed} of all greenhouse gases world-wide, significantly greater than that of plant agriculture—it has become increasingly difficult to defend the place of meat and animal-sourced foods in our diets. Jonathan Safran Foer, the novelist turned animal-rights activist, may have best captured this thinking in his 2019 nonfiction book, “We Are the Weather: Saving the Planet Begins at Breakfast.” As he writes, “We cannot   Read More

    5 Types of Rice: Which Is the Healthiest?

    Is rice healthy? It’s not your imagination: The rice section at your local grocery store has gotten a whole lot more interesting.
