Monthly Produce Give Away

Posted on February 15 by
in Blog

Starting in March of 2017 I will be giving away one produce box per month to one lucky winner! All you have to do is "like" my HMD Nutrition face book page to be eligible to win. Please share this with family and friends who might enjoy a box of produce delivered to their home in Maricopa County.

The Heather you see listed to call is not me, but actually a friend who is growing organic, hydroponic lettuce (even kale) that she sells in addition to boxes or on its own.

Check out her FB page at Twisted Infusions Farms. Her kale is so fresh it lasts for 2 to 3 weeks in the fridge!

All I ask is the winner to be home when it is delivered so we can take a picture of you, the produce box and Heather who will be delivering it personally to you. The boxes do vary each week as does your seasonal produce, below is just one example.

Frozen Yogurt vs. Ice Cream: Which is Healthier?

Posted on May 23 by

Ice cream is made from milk and cream, where as yogurt is made from yogurt, milk and sometimes cream.

To be labeled ice cream, it must contain 10% milk fat. There is no requirement for frozen yogurt.

Let's compare vanilla ice cream to frozen yogurt:

Ice cream: 130 calories, 7 grams of fat, 16 grams of carbs and 2 grams of protein.

Frozen yogurt: 120 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, 20 grams of carbs and 3 grams of protein.

*In yogurt there is friendly bacteria, but this benefit is lost as they are killed during the freezing process.

So.....when reading the nutrition facts label, it is important to look at the whole picture..... calories, carbs, fat and protein.

Personally, I would chose the ice cream here as the difference in calories is minimal but there is less sugar and more fat for better blood sugar balance.18581630 1885260565022003 8279477798411253824 n
