An allergy is an inappropriate response by the body's immune system to a substance that is not normally harmful (Balch 2006).   Food Allergies occurs when a person's immune system generates an antibody response to the ingested food (Balch 2006).   In 2012, 5.6% or 4.1 million children reported food allergies in the past 12 months (Bloom, Cohen & Freeman 2011).  In order to see what appropriate treatment is helpful for a person who has food allergies it is important to start using different food allergies testing methods.  The different food allergy testing methods are the elimination/challenge, skin prick testing, atopy patch test, radioallergosorbent testing, enzyme-link immunosorbent assay, third generation ELISA Assays microarray chip technology and Energetic Methods (Pizzorno & Murray 2013).  There are other testing methods that have been used for food sensitivity testing and treatment but systematic scientific studies have either not been done to verify...

Back to school again (in the Southern region of the United States) .  My, how time goes by so quickly.  This is the season where a lot of our darling children will come home for a long day of school screaming  “ Mom!” “What’s for dinner?”  or “Mom, I am hungry!”  “What do we have to eat!”   If you do not have dinner ready now you can give them a healthy snack that will tie them over until dinner time.  Pick snacks that taste good, help them to look and feel great.

Make sure that you do not give too much of a snack that your child will not have enough to eat for dinner.  But, if your child is doing something active like playing a sport, taking a dance class, biking or running around with your friends, it’s OK to fuel up with a bigger snack.

 Your child can eat lunch at noon and dinner’s at 6:00, a snack right after school–say at about 3:00–is just right. They will get some fuel to do homework or to get outside and play.

 You can pack a great snack in your...

I am again out on the road and this time I am at Hollywood Beach, Florida to work for the Black Enterprises - Women of Power Summit.  I had a chance to work as a nutritional consultant for Abbott Corporation who was a sponsor at this event. I really enjoy this conference because it give women a chance to network with positive like minded women. The speakers at this summit were Actress Vanessa Williams and Alfre Woodard who received Legacy Awards and Debra L. Lee, chairman and CEO of BET Networks.  To see the videos of these talks click here

 

 

 

 

                 

       

 

 

 

 

 

 

So excited to see all of these incredible women and hearing them speech but the best thing I had the chance to do at this trip was the sunrise beach yoga.  Hearing the soothing sounds of the waves splashing onto the shore., the sand stuck on my feet and seeing the seagulls flying around made me feel at peace and grateful for being there.  Our excel...

Since the winter  is here do you think eating locally needs to stop during this time of year? Definitely not so! Cold weather crops, the use of hoop houses and other methods to extend the natural growing season, and old storage bins for vegetables like cabbages and potatoes all mean that there are plenty of winter fruits and vegetables to choose from in most of the country. Look for the winter fruits and vegetables at farmers markets and in produce departments for the best flavor (and greatest value) in season. Specific crops and harvest dates will depend on your region’s climate and most of these are only available locally in temperate regions.

 

What types of fruits and vegetables are good to eat during the winter season?  They are cabbage, celery, pears, carrots, spinach, brussels sprouts, parsnips, cauliflower, broccoli, grapefruit, sweet potatoes and yams, onions and leeks, potatoes, winter squash, mushrooms, pears and turnips.

 

If you want to extend your winter gardening season then...

 

 

This may sound like you.  Every year, I decide to make some resolutions goals to only find out by June that I have  drop out or gave up in doing them.  The problem was that I focused on the resolution (losing weight) but I was not finding out what was the solution  (changing emotional eating habits) to make a positive changes with my life.  That is why it is important to not only find what you want to change in your life but how you are going to do it and keep the momentum going.  

 

The Living Healthy Movement is focused on finding solutions not doing resolutions!  Come and be a part of this movement by clicking here and sign up for the Living Healthy Movement Newsletter.  You may ask yourself well what would I like to change in my life this year. Here is an excellent article from my favorite college - American College of Health Science (www.ACHS.edu).  (In this article, I would have called the resolutions to solutions but the concepts ideas of chang...
