Healthy Eating Guide
The hectic pace of modern life often takes a toll on nutrition--as we fuel our fast-paced lifestyles with fast food and squeeze our meals into the corners of ever-tightening schedules. But the busier our lives become, the more crucial it is to provide our bodies with nourishing foods that will sustain the level of energy we need to keep us going.
A warm pan of decadent brownies or a moist, melt-in-your-mouth cake are simple treats that show your love. Unfortunately, these beloved desserts are usually off-limits for gluten-free eaters.
Local Bounty – Making the Most of Farmers Markets
Colorful produce of all sizes, shapes and textures, fresh air, and friendly farmers — what better way to spend a summer morning than at your local Farmer's Market? Here you'll find the most nutritious produce for you and your family (and, if you're lucky, some freshly baked breads, cheeses, and other artisinal foods, too). At the same time, by shopping at the Farmers Market, you'll actively support your community as well as the environment (most supermarket food travels an average of 1,500 miles to the shelves!).

But as with many indulgent pleasures, there are downsides — such as the trans fat and saturated fats used in commercial frying and the potentially carcinogenic chemical acrylamide, which forms most abundantly in starchy chips that are fried at the high temperatures employed in food factories.
