I am not a nut milk enthusiast by nature. In fact, milk (cow’s milk, that is) was my favorite drink from age 0-28 or so. As I got older and, like many adults, my body had less ability to effectively digest cow’s milk, I started cutting back. A few years ago when I switched to … Read More.
This post was written by Annalaura Maranville, a member of your Co-op Cafe Team and a plant-based eating enthusiast. Eight years ago, I stumbled upon a brochure about veganism. I’d been in an on-again-off-again relationship with vegetarianism for years, but on this particular day, I was struck with an unavoidable conviction to go fully vegan. After … Read More.
By: Molly Herrmann for Co-op, Stronger Together There is nothing that can turn a good day to bad faster than coming home and trying to feed your child dinner (emphasis on the trying.) It can be a very frustrating experience if your child has limited foods they are willing to eat or if they liked … Read More.
Fast. Probably also food. Fast food is great because it’s fast, but, more often than not, it’s not the best thing to put into your body and sometimes barely qualifies as food. The good news is, it doesn’t have to involve a drive-through or come with a side of fries. It’s possible to do fast … Read More.
By: Jesse Haas for Co-op, Stronger Together I run around with a group of incredibly active and strong people, several of whom also enjoy a friendly weightlifting competition now and then. It’s been interesting seeing how their diets have changed to keep up with the nutritional demands of their training. Their focus, in large part, is … Read More.
I am not the kind of dietitian who likes traditional diets or “dieting.” I am all about eating more fruits and vegetables, making more of your grains whole and incorporating additional healthy fats into your everyday eating. But if you’re going to try a new diet this year, there is one I feel a bit … Read More.
It’s that magical time again when we look back on the year that just ended, often in the form of top ten countdowns, and look ahead to the new year and how we want our lives to look at the end of it. While some people are resolving to be brilliant, hot and/or rich in … Read More.
By: Eve Adamson It usually goes something like this I will lose 20 pounds! I will finally get in shape! I will eat better! I will be more environmentally conscious! I will cook for my family more often! I will spend more time with my family! I will stop ordering pizza and eating fast food! I … Read More.
It’s frankly impossible to get through the holidays without either saying yourself or hearing someone else say something shameful about indulging in food. “I had three cookies! I’m so bad!” “Wine and cheese tonight, extra treadmill time tomorrow!” “I’m being good… no seconds for me!” I’m gonna go out on a limb and say we … Read More.
Food is an important element of many holidays (and my favorite thing about some holidays. Grilled everything on Labor Day? Don’t mind if I do). The protein of the meal is often the centerpiece of gatherings of family and friends, and sometimes even involves a traditional recipe handed down through generations. But just because your … Read More.
