I just got back from sunny Scottsdale, AZ, from a sponsored trip to the Produce for Better Health Consumer Connection conference. The main focus of the conference is to get together all stakeholders in the country with a common mission of getting consumers to eat more fruits and veggies. You might wonder why a conference like that is needed, but perhaps wonder more why is it that only 1 in 10 Americans are eating enough fruits and veggies daily. Everyone knows how important plant foods are for our health, right? Anyhoo, I got totally pumped from the conference after meeting with farmers, commodity boards, retailers, you name it. OH, and I also think I should move to Scottsdale – the weather is SO much nicer than NYC! 🙂

So many people complain of indigestion, yet so many people do nothing about it. My favorite quote from this article is, “The first line of defense is not to worry about the remedy, but figure out how to avoid it all together!” Who said it? Me! Can’t tell you how many patients say, “This food causes ______ when I eat it, what should I do?” Ummm – usually my response is, SO don’t eat it! BUT, please read this article for other tips on what to do.
I know – I probably sound like a broken record by now! But guess what – drum roll please – pasta can be part of a well-balanced diet. Thanks to Healthline for letting me provide some great tips on how everyone can still enjoy one of their favorite foods. Cause come on, life without pasta…. is like a day without sunshine! 🙂
