Happy National Nutrition Month!

MT. PLEASANT, Mich — Happy National Nutrition Month! As we “spring” into a new season, it’s the perfect time to get those summer body goals in the works. While working out is essential to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, nutrition should never be ignored. In this blog, we’ll cover some of the top foods you need to be integrating into your eating plan to not only keep you looking great but feeling your best as well!
KALE This leafy green has experienced quite the bought of popularity, especially in plant-based diets in recent years, and for good reason too. Dieticians claim that this plant is even healthier than spinach and is full of vitamins, minerals, and cancer-fighting compounds.
GARLIC This popular relative of the onion is used in cuisines all over the world, but its benefits include much more than warding off vampires. Not only does garlic bring new, flavorful dimensions to dishes, but it’s also extremely high in vitamins C, B1, B6, calcium, potassium, copper, manganese and selenium. It’s also high in beneficial sulfur compounds such as allicin, contains various cancer-fighting properties, and has significant antibacterial and antifungal capabilities.
BLUEBERRIES When it comes to the nutritional value of fruit, blueberries are in a league all their own. Although they’re not as high in vitamins and minerals as vegetables are, they’re packed with antioxidants. Additionally, studies have shown that they improve memory in older adults, and contain cancer-fighting properties.
DARK CHOCOLATE Chocolate lovers rejoice! Your favorite sweet not only curbs those sugar cravings, it actually contains a lot of health benefits too! Dark chocolate with a high cocoa content is loaded with fiber, iron, magnesium, copper, plus an amazing range of antioxidants! In fact, studies have shown that dark chocolate contains more antioxidants than other food tested, including blueberries and acai berries! It also contains powerful health benefits like improved blood flow, lower blood pressure, and improved brain function. One study even suggests that people who consume chocolate more than five times a week have a 57% lower chance of heart disease. However, in order to take advantage of all these benefits make sure you’re consuming chocolate with at least a 70% cocoa content, for best results, we suggest 85% or higher.
SEAWEED The thought of consuming seaweed may make you turn up your nose, but don’t snub this incredibly healthy vegetation! A longtime mainstay in Asian cuisine (and for good reason), these plants are slowly making their entrance in Western diets due to their particularly high counts of minerals like calcium, magnesium, and iron. It’s also loaded with various bioactive compounds like phycocyanins and carotenoids. But where seaweed really shines is it’s impressively high content of iodine, which is a mineral your body uses to make thyroid hormones. It does have a pretty distinct “ocean taste” but if you’re not a fan of that flavor profile, you can always take it in supplement form.
AVOCADO Avocados are a fruit that’s in a class of their own. They’re extremely good for you, and contain a wide variety of nutrients, including 20 different vitamins and minerals. They do not contain any cholesterol or sodium and are revered by many dieticians for their high content of healthy fats. Additionally, they’re loaded with fiber, and contain more potassium that bananas!
CHIA SEEDS Recognized as one of the healthiest foods on the planet, chia seeds are loaded with properties that have incredible benefits for your body and your brain. They contain high levels of healthy fats, calcium, magnesium, protein, fiber, zinc, and various vitamins. Donned a superfood, these tiny seeds have risen to great popularity in the past few years, and are championed for the ability to contribute to weight loss as well. Additionally, studies have shown they may lower your risk of heart disease, reduce blood sugar levels, reduce chronic inflammation, and more!
BROCCOLI When it comes to great-tasting nutrition, broccoli is an all-star food with numerous health benefits. It contains high amounts of sulforaphane, which scientists are currently studying the anti-cancer properties of. It also presents high amounts of vitamin C, B vitamins, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc. In addition, it contains folate which is necessary for the production and maintenance of new cells in the body.
MISO PASTE Another traditional ingredient in most Asian diets, Miso paste is made from fermented soybeans and grains and contains millions of beneficial bacteria. It stimulates the digestion system, energizes the body, and lends a distinct umami dimension to the flavor of your dishes. It’s an excellent source of copper, manganese, vitamin K, protein and zinc. Plus, it’s incredibly high in enzymes due to the fermentation process. While there is conflicting research on the negative effects that introducing soy into your diet may have, consuming miso in smaller quantities will not have a profound oestrogenic effect. Just make sure you thoroughly check the label before purchasing, as many soy products are made with genetically modified beans, so err on the side of caution and look for a brand that is created with organically grown ingredients.
TURMERIC This boldly-pigmented spice is major player in Indian cuisine and is used to give curry it’s yellow hue. But brightly colored dishes isn’t it’s only claim to fame. This herb has been the subject of numerous studies which have resulted in this super spice’s popularity. Its active ingredient is curcumin which has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a strong antioxidant. The overall content of this ingredient is not high in the spice so for your body to properly absorb it, we recommend consuming it along with black pepper, or taking it as a tincture. It’s also known to increase brain activity, and lower the risk of brain diseases, in addition to helping prevent and treat Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, arthritis, and age-related chronic diseases. It has also shown some promise in smaller studies for the treatment of depression, but as always, consult your doctor before making this your primary method of treatment.
QUINOA This ancient grain, nicknamed the “mother of all grains” by the Incas, provides a wide array of health benefits. There are hundreds of cultivated strains, but the most readily available in the US are white, red, and black. Unlike other whole grains, it is naturally gluten-free, and is a complete protein; it contains high amounts of potassium, iron, zinc, copper, fatty acids, magnesium, and much more! It has been known to help prevent kidney stones, improve blood sugar control, prevent hemorrhoids, and constipation. Due to its status as a complete protein, it’s an excellent choice for those that follow vegetarian or vegan diets, but we recommend it for meat-eaters too! Just make sure you rinse it before cooking as it has a naturally bitter coating that called saponin that works as a natural insecticide.
We hope you found our list of highly-nutritional foods to be helpful and educational, there are obviously so many more super foods that we did not include, but these are a few of our favorites. Do you have any favorite healthy, whole, foods we didn’t mention? Comment and let us know. Happy National Nutrition Month! We hope you stay happy & healthy. Until next time!

There is no “typical Jewish food”. Israelis or their parents/grandparents came from almost every country in the world and brought their cuisine with them. So you can find Moroccan Jewish food, Polish Jewish food, American Jewish food, Indian Jewish food… What many people think of as typical Jewish food, such as gefilte fish, kishkes etc., is not at all popular in Israel .
And your question isn’t clear. When you say you want a Jewish restaurant, do you mean a kosher restaurant? All kosher restaurants have a certificate prominently displayed. Here is an example, exact style might vary:
https://www.tripadvisor.com/LocationPhotoDir…
There are plenty of Jewish-owned restaurants that are not strictly kosher and don’t have a certificate, but they may serve food that is indistinguishable from those that do have a certificate. Reasons for not having a certificate might be that they are open on Shabbat (the Sabbath), which automatically disqualifies them from being kosher, or the owners for personal reasons do not want to go to the trouble of getting a certificate.
Shellfish is also prohibited. Creatures living in water (river, lake or sea) must have both fins and scales to be kosher, so trout is kosher; catfish isn’t.
Kosher restaurants are either meat or dairy. Kosher meat restaurants don’t serve anything dairy at all. All dairy foods or anything with the slightest trace of milk products (not just cheese) are prohibited with meat, not only on the same plate but at the same meal, so if you have a main course containing meat you can’t follow it with milky coffee. (Of course if you want to you can go somewhere else for your milky coffee.) Fish isn’t considered to be meat, it’s “neutral” in the same way as vegetables, and can be eaten with either meat foods – although most people do not mix meat and fish on the same plate – or with dairy foods.
And just because a restaurant is kosher it doesn’t necessarily mean it serves “typical Jewish food”. Being kosher means it doesn’t transgress any of the religious laws. There are kosher Chinese restaurants, kosher Italian restaurants, but nobody would suggest that the food served in them is typically Jewish. The recipes may be slightly different to conform with the rules for kosher food, so if a typical Chinese dish contains shrimps (which are not kosher), a kosher Chinese restaurant would use tuna or some other kosher fish instead.
And there are plenty of Jewish-owned restaurants that are not remotely kosher. Not all Jews in Israel are religious, far from it. You can find Jewish-owned restaurants that serve pork, shellfish, anything you can think of. The owners are Jews, but that’s as far as it goes.
Does that help?

SyphilisFlaschly : lilplatinum: The_Sponge: lilplatinum: Try eating it regularly. If your culinary range of spices is limited to salt, pepper, and if you want to get crazy a little paprika, than Germany is culinary heaven.
Also they eat raw minced pork for breakfast. Sometimes shaped as a meat hedgehog.
Gah! Raw pork? Damn.
But aren’t there other culinary options in Germany? Italian, Greek, Indian, Middle Eastern, etc.?
A joke about my favorite country in Europe:
“Czech cuisine is German food served rudely.”
The Turkish food is good due to a large Turkish contingent, a lot of the other foreign food is changed to Germans aversion to anything remotely spicey. Berlin is okay because it’s pretty international, but for the food snob in me I’ll stick to NYC or Texas.
Think that’s bad? Check out what the Swedes think pizza is. And the first person to make a Chicago joke will feel wrath of my touch screen keyboard.

Italian food is world’s most popular, Indian cuisine ranks ninth

In a survey of 24 countries, pizza and pasta take the top spot, closely followed by Chinese and Japanese cuisine
Indian cuisine is the ninth most popular in the world
An international YouGov study of more than 25,000 people in 24 countries finds that pizza and pasta are among the most popular foods in the world, as Italian cuisine beats all comers.
We asked people which of 34 national cuisines they had tried and whether they liked or disliked them, with Italian food being the most well-liked. The cuisine received an average popularity score of 84% across the 24 nations we studied.
Patriotically, the biggest fans of Italian food are Italians themselves, with 99% enjoying their national cuisine. Other big fans include Spaniards (94% of those who have tried it say they like it) and the French (92%), while the least impressed by Italian food are the Chinese (59%).
Second place behind Italian food goes to Chinese cuisine, which scored on average 78% across the countries surveyed. It’s liked by 95% of Chinese people, with Singaporeans (94% of those who have tried it say they like it) and Hongkongers (91%) also particular fans. The cuisine is least popular in Saudi Arabia (54%) and Indonesia (57%).
The world’s third most popular cuisine is Japanese, scoring an average of 71% across the 24 nations. Aside from the 94% of Japanese people who like it, 94% of Singaporeans who have tried it also do, as well as 93% of Hongkongers. Once again it’s the Saudi Arabians who are least enamoured, with only 43% enjoying it.
At the bottom of the table comes Peruvian cuisine, which received an average score of only 32%. Scoring only fractionally higher (and rounding to the same percentage score) was Finnish cuisine.
It should be pointed out, however, that Finland was one of the countries surveyed but Peru was not, meaning that the loyal 94% of Finns who like their own country’s cuisine was enough to give them the edge. Had the study included Peruvian opinions then Finnish cuisine would likely have come bottom.
The lowest opinion any nation had for another nation’s cuisine was Japan towards Saudi Arabian cuisine, with just 11% of Japanese people who have tried it saying that they like it.
In fact, the survey finds that Japanese people are the harshest food critics of any nation surveyed. Of the 34 cuisines we asked about, 23 scored less than 50% among Japanese respondents. On average only 39% of Japanese people said they liked any given foreign food.
By contrast, it’s Filipinos who are the most likely to appreciate international cuisine. An average of 67% of Filipinos who had tried any given cuisine said they liked it, with only five types of food being liked by fewer than half.
Indian food all the way!
Indian cuisine is among the top ten popular cuisines in the world, standing at number nine, with an average popularity score of 62% across the 24 countries.
Other than their own cuisine, which 93% of Indians claim to like, they also have a palate for Italian (80%), Chinese (77%) and American cuisines (75%). However, Indians have lower tolerance for Norwegian, Filipino, Finnish and Peruvian cuisines.
Although 77% Singaporeans and 70% Malaysians like Indian cuisine, the rest of South East Asia has a lower preference for our food. In Indonesia 49% and in Vietnam 44% of those who have tasted Indian food claimed to like it.
In Thailand, on the other hand, people hold the cuisine in disdain, with only 27% who tried it stating they like it. However, it is actually China that has the least liking for Indian food, with only 26% saying they like it.
Indian cuisine is more warmly received in the European countries, with over half the people in the surveyed countries saying they like it. It is particularly popular in Britain (84% of those who have tried it say they like it), Norway (75%), France and Finland (71%).
Nearly three quarter (74%) Australians are fans of Indian cuisine. Even in Middle-Eastern countries, Indian food is a hit, with 76% in Saudi Arabia and 71% in UAE saying they like it.

20+ Vegan and Vegetarian-Friendly Restaurants in Virginia

20+ Vegan and Vegetarian-Friendly Restaurants in Virginia by Patricia Keppel | Posted: Mar 13, 2019 Comments: 0 Comments
When you’re trying to stick to a vegan or vegetarian diet, dining out can be pretty difficult. But while vegetarian-only dining options are hard to come by, Virginia has several vegan and vegetarian-friendly restaurants that offer more than a few meat-free alternatives on their menu. So whether you’re a lifelong vegan or an open-minded diner just looking to sample some veggie-based fare, these vegan and vegetarian-friendly restaurants are worth a visit.
Gillie’s Restaurant—Blacksburg
Gillie’s has been a favorite dining spot for Blacksburg residents and Virginia Tech students alike since 1975. The restaurant blends your classic down home cooking with progressive vegan and vegetarian fare, using the freshest ingredients to craft healthy, casual cuisine. They are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with each menu having several vegan, vegetarian, and even gluten-free options clearly marked. Vegan lunch options include the Hummus Salad, Tempeh BLT (vegan), and Gillie’s Burger, made with a black bean patty. For vegetarians, there’s the Tofu Reuben, Mushroom Burger, and the Peanut Tofu Wrap.
Ellwood Thompson’s Local Market—Richmond
Since 1989, Ellwood Thompson’s has served the Richmond community as a locally owned grocery store, bringing organic produce and products from local farmers, artisans, and businesses, but in the past decade, they have expanded their in-house kitchen, offering a wide array of vegan and vegetarian prepared foods. Vegan chicken nuggets, tempeh mock chicken salad, and veggie wraps are just a few of the vegetarian and vegan friendly dishes at this community staple.
Brown Chicken Brown Cow—Hampton
While Brown Chicken Brown Cow is primarily a burger place, you can substitute a falafel patty for the beef, allowing all of the burgers to be vegetarian. We like the Nostradamus – topped with caramelized onions, Gruyere cheese, Creole mustard, and arugula, or the Aristocrats – heaped high with caramelized onions, goat cheese, cabernet-blueberry glaze, and arugula, but you can also build your own burger. Another vegetarian option is the Chick-A-Pea sandwich – a falafel sandwich with Tzatziki, spinach, and tomato.
Hidden Julles Café —Haymarket
Specializing in local, organic, and natural dishes, Hidden Julles Café offers colorful culinary masterpieces with unique ingredients. For breakfast, vegans can try the Vegan Breakfast Burrito, filled with home fries, guacamole, pico de gallo, black beans, spinach, and quinoa, while vegetarians have the option of Stuffed French Toast, the Haymarket Breakfast Burrito, Avocado Toast, and Florentine Eggs Benedict. Lunch menu items include the Veggie – available in a wrap, salad, or sandwich, or the Vegan Wrap – with spinach, quinoa, hummus, pico de gallo, cucumbers, black beans, guacamole, and lemon vinaigrette. In addition to vegan and vegetarian food, the restaurant prepares Paleo and gluten free dishes.
