Nutrition - 11 April 2011 - Unfit parents, the incredible edible egg, and a low-carb overview

Good Monday Morning, All!

 

The little weather birdie has flown all the way out to Arizona to tell me that your weather this week will be bordering on fantastic! Make sure that you take advantage of it by getting outside and soaking in that delicious vitamin D making sunshine. A brisk walk during your lunch break, a pick-up game of soccer with the kids, or just relaxing on the deck with a good book are all simple ways to do this. Enjoy!

 

The Boston Globe had an interesting article posted yesterday titled, “Parents of tots often less fit, study says.“ In a nutshell it claims that the study found women consume more sugary drinks and fatty foods when caring for toddlers while fathers simply become less active. In the end, they both become less fit and weight gain is one major indicator. For those members of our group who have raised kids – is this similar to your own experience? I’m going to assume that most of the sugary drinks and fatty foods are coming from the bites and sips of the young ones “kids meals” instead of good home cooked suppers. Check out Sarah’s recent post on this topic.

 

Nutrition Tip of the Day: Eat eggs. I love eggs. And you should too. Here – Marks tells us why.

 

One of our biggest struggles is to explain to others how we eat and why. Remember – I feel it is best to follow a guideline but make the changes necessary to best fit you. If that includes a food such as dairy or very little exercise then so be it! Everyone is different. However, many people feel they are experts about what to eat and every diet out there and so they like to engage in “discussion” (argument) over what is what. Here’s a terrific write-up by NJ Paleo Girl on the differences between Paleo, Primal, and Atkins. And there’s a cool graphic to make it easy. Plus she’s from NJ which makes her awesome by association. :-)
