Please be mindful of friends and family with chronic health issues. The last thing we need is a cold or flu on top of everything else we're deluged with. Thanks, and enjoy the season.

Have trouble getting all those recommended servings of fruits AND vegetables? Maybe you can try what I did--smoothies. Not just green ones, either. I actually get at least one serving of all the DASH diet food groups (except meats) in a single smoothie each day. Tons of recipes out there. Look at the contents first.

It's the height of apple season (at least SOMEWHERE in the world!), and along with this beautiful photo comes word of how much we've learned about this one particularly healthy fruit. Included in the videos is the answer to how to clean pesticides from them (spoiler alert: baking soda and water).

It's not too late to start making dietary changes that can improve your quality of life. Better health through whole food is scientifically documented to improve or even prevent many chronic health issues that older adults face.

Here’s how scientists are tricking you into eating your veggies https://buff.ly/2ms3EHy Actually, it's a very interesting interview with a couple of psychologists about how we taste and how we can change some of that programming about what we like.

This is great support for those ready to put behind themselves all animal food sources. If you're not quite there, stick with WFH4A, where the emphasis is on gradual steps toward improving your quality of life through diet.

There is value to counting calories--it can give you an overall picture of your daily energy intake, and it allows you to "comparison shop." But should it guide what you eat? The answer is NO if you follow a whole food-based diet (more on that at http://wholefoodhealingforaging.com/wholefood). That, together with an overall guide like the Mediterranean dietary pattern, is a much easier approach than your favorite calorie-counting app, for instance.

Confused about how to translate all the whole food, plant-based diet hype into something you can do for yourself? This is one approach that has a lot to recommend it. Michael Greger is a phenomenal researcher and follows the primary scientific literature close than most, if not all, of the nutrition bloggers out there.
