Expert Healthy diet doesn’t have to be a lofty expensive goal / Public News Service

March is National Nutrition Month, and North Dakotans are being reminded of ways to better manage their health through personalized diet plans considering flexibility without all the pressure.

In a post-pandemic world, people might try to shed unhealthy eating habits they developed during the early stages of COVID-19. Or the crisis may have inspired them to pay more attention to preventing disease and improving their health.

Bailey Holmquist, a registered dietitian based in Fargo, said fewer processed foods should play a role. For example, there are certain proteins to keep in mind.

“I tell my patients, ‘Do what you’re able to, but if we can get good grass-fed meats, pasture-raised eggs, wild-caught fish,'” Holmquist outlined. “So that we get the most nutrients out of those animals.”

But if such items are not in your budget, or you don’t have time to look for them, she recommends buying the protein most easy to obtain. Canned beans are considered a good complementary option. And there is affordable peanut butter made from healthy ingredients. Holmquest emphasized it is not about being perfect with your diet, but instead focusing on consistency.

Holmquest also pointed out specific guidance on healthy diets does not work for

Certified organic 2024 – Changes ahead

CHICAGO — Much has changed in the US organic food and beverage sector since the US Department of Agriculture National Organic Program (NOP) was established in 2000. And 2024 will bring more changes, everything from stricter regulations to a growing demand for imports.

To ensure organic remains a reliable certification for shoppers, NOP issued its Strengthening Organic Enforcement (SOE) rule that went into effect on March 20, 2023. Operations and certifiers must fully comply with the rule by March 19, 2024.

The SOE closes loopholes that have enabled ingredients that do not meet NOP standards to enter the organic supply chain, leading to fraud. Key updates include requiring certification of more of the businesses at critical links in organic supply chains.

Previously, only operations involved in producing, processing, packaging and labeling organic products required certification. The SOE requires buyers, sellers, brokers and traders to be certified.

“The USDA estimated 4,000 to 5,000 companies would need new certification,” said Nate Ensrud, vice president – ​​US technical services, certification and food safety solutions, FoodChain ID, Fairfield, Iowa. “Many organizations think they are exempt when they are not. It’s the middle layer of the supply chain that is of primary concern.

The Best Children’s Cookbooks Puts Kids in Charge of the Kitchen

I still have my copy of the Barbie Party Cookbook. Published in 1991, it was meant to introduce children to the idea of hosting a party. It begins with tips on choosing a date (don’t choose a school night), reserving a skating rink or a park in advance, and picking a theme. But of course, it’s mostly about cooking. The book is divided into 10 types of parties, with menus to match. There are jelly heart cookies and chocolate-dipped strawberries for Valentine’s Day, and mini pizzas for a video slumber party. “Before you begin to cook, make sure that you can use the kitchen,” a section titled “Barbie’s Kitchen Rules” advises. “An adult needs to be present to help you with difficult steps and answer your questions.”

This was not my only cookbook for “children,” but none of them really taught me how to cook. Any recipes involving knives or the stove (so, all of them) said to get a grown-up to do that part, leaving me mostly to spread jam on sandwiches or decorate scoops of ice cream to look like butterflies. I did not learn how to dice vegetables, or roast a chicken, or even throw a

McKenna (@mckennaiseating) shared the Taco Bell dupe recipe in a TikTok video.

To start, she cooked a flour tortilla, added cheddar cheese on top, and heated it until the cheese was properly melted.

Next, take her choice of tostadas and break it in half with her hands.

“You can use a regular crunchy taco shell, whatever you’d like, but something crunchy,” she said.

“This is what I do, I lay it on the two halves.”

For protein, she added a layer of taco meat, spreading it out over one-half of the shell halves and tortilla.

The secret ingredient was her homemade sauce, which she dubbed “Mommy’s Special Sauce.”

“It’s mayo, sour cream, garlic powder, chili powder, salt, and the secret ingredient is jalapeno juice from pickled jalapenos,” she revealed.

On the other half of the tortilla with no meat, she dumped a healthy helping of

US airdrops food into Gaza in move criticized by aid groups | Israel War on Gaza News

United States military cargo planes have air-dropped food into Gaza, in the first of a series of aid drops as humanitarian groups criticize Israel for blocking access to the besieged and bombarded strip.

The US, together with Jordan’s air force, “conducted a combined humanitarian assistance airdrop into Gaza … to provide essential relief to civilians affected by the ongoing conflict”, US Central Command said in a statement on Saturday.

The C-130 planes “dropped over 38,000 meals along the coastline of Gaza allowing for civilian access to the critical aid”, it added, as the enclave faces a humanitarian crisis after almost five months of war.

US President Joe Biden had announced a day earlier that the US would airdrop aid there after more than 100 Palestinians were killed on Thursday in northern Gaza while waiting for aid.

US National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said on Friday that the US will carry out multiple airdrops in the next few weeks, which will be coordinated with Jordan.

Kirby said the airdrops have an advantage over trucks because planes can move aid to a particular area quickly. However, in terms of volume, the airdrops will be “a supplement to, not a replacement for

Make healthier food accessible to Filipinos

A health group on Wednesday raised concern over the prevalence of overweight and obesity among children and adults in the country.

This as the Healthy Philippines Alliance (HPA), a network of civil society organizations advocating for the prevention and control of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), urges the government to help make healthier food accessible to Filipinos, in line with the commemoration of World Obesity Day .

The HPA stated that poor dietary habits and lack of physical activity contribute to overweight and obesity, elevating the likelihood of developing NCDs such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and chronic kidney disease. Moreover, obesity established during childhood can endure into adulthood.

“Consuming an excessive amount of any food is detrimental to your health, leading to an increase in calorie intake and subsequent weight gain. Therefore, it is essential to be aware of the calories required based on height and level of physical activity for adults and based on age for children,” Jennina Duatin, a Registered Nutritionist Dietician who serves as Board of Trustee of Diabetes Philippines, an HPA member, said.

“Furthermore, maintaining a well-balanced diet involves consuming appropriate portion sizes of macronutrients like carbohydrates, protein, and fats tailored to individual daily calorie needs,” Duatin
