Healthy Dipping? Salsa!

Filed Under: General Wellness & Wellbeing,Gluten Free,Health Foods at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor
Salsa dip

Snacking doesn’t necessarily have to be unhealthy but did you know that one of the most popular dips actually offers a ton of health benefits? Yes, that’s salsa. Fresh tomato salsa has several health benefits when made with fresh ingredients and low salt. The most common ingredients in tomato salsa are hot peppers, onions, lime, and olive oil. These ingredients provide a source of essential nutrients such as vitamins C, beta carotene, minerals, antioxidants and much more.

Fresh red tomatoes are high in vitamin C, vitamin A, and contain the wonderful lycopene ingredient known to prevent heart disease and atherosclerosis, the hardening of the arteries.

Hot peppers such as jalapenos are often used in salsa and contain vitamins A, K and C, as well as folate and lutein. Jalapenos are also known to speed up the metabolism helping you burn fat more efficiently. Capsaicin, the chemical responsible for a pepper’s spiciness, plays a role in the treatment of some health conditions, and may help relieve indigestion and stomach pain.

Lime juice has antioxidant properties and may help to prevent infections. Onions contains vitamin C, or ascorbic acid. Olive Oil is likely the best choice of oil to be used for salsa for its multiple health benefits as it contains mono and polyunsaturated fats, which unlike saturated fats, may help lower cholesterol levels in the blood, reducing your risk of heart problems.

Fresh tomato salsa is often served with Mexican dishes such as tacos, chips and fajitas but you can also eat it with healthier alternatives like chopped carrots and celery sticks, making a very healthy snack full of vitamins, minerals and fiber. Plus, you can use salsa as a healthy garnish for grilled fish or chicken, boosting the meal’s nutrient content and adding flavor without the use of salt or fat.

“Going nuts” doesn’t always mean a bad thing. In fact, when it comes to nutritional value, nuts are the way to go. Considered by many as a healthy snack, nuts contain a variety of vitamins, minerals and nutrients that can really make a difference on your diet. If you are not sure which one you should shop, here is a quick view of 5 nuts that pack the biggest health punch.

Delicious cashews are an excellent source of essential minerals such as magnesium, iron, and copper. High in unsaturated fat, a single serving of cashews provides 4 grams of protein as well as omega-3, omega-6, and vitamin K.

2. Peanuts

Peanuts may get a bad reputation due to its high amount of calories but this popular snack is also packed with healthy nutrients. Peanuts contain about 7 grams of protein per serving and are a good source of vitamins such as niacin, B6, and vitamin E. Additionally, the magnesium content in peanuts has been linked to cardiovascular health.

3. Pistachios

Low fat, low carb, and loaded with vitamins and minerals. That’s the perfect combination everyone is looking for in a snack and pistachios are just the perfect fit. An excellent source of vitamin B6, copper and manganese, pistachios contain other essential vitamins and minerals that may be helpful for improving health condition as well as aiding in weight management.

You Can Get More Fresh Fruits & Veggies into Schools Nationwide Just by Drinking Healthy Skoop!

Filed Under: Baby and Child Health,Health Foods,Sports Nutrition at 9:00 am | By: Guest Blogger
We might not look it, but as a nation, we’re starving. We’ve got plenty of food. Or at least we’ve got plenty of stuff that passes for it. But when it comes to nutrition, we’re all hungry for a solution. We created Healthy Skoop to be part of the solution. We’re on a mission to bring plant-based nutrition to every American, and our superfood blends and protein powders are a convenient way to make sure you are giving your body what it needs every day.

But perhaps the coolest part about getting your Skoop on is that you’re not just doing a good thing for yourself–you’re doing a good thing for the future health of the country. That’s right. Positive change is baked into each and every batch of Skoop. Allow us to explain…

HealthySkoop_ProjectProduce_Icons (1)Our school lunch programs are struggling–there are too many schools out there that have to count french fries and ketchup as vegetables in order to meet FDA requirements. There are kids out there that think leafy greens are just for feeding their pet rabbits. This generation of kids is the first generation in the history of America that may have a shorter average lifespan than the one preceding it–and that is seriously not okay.

That’s why we partnered with the Chef Ann Foundation to create Project Produce. The Chef Ann Foundation is a non-profit dedicated to providing tools to enable schools to progress from serving highly processed, unhealthy food to serving fresh scratch-cooked food. Project Produce is a joint effort between Healthy Skoop and Chef Ann Foundation to provide grants for fresh fruits and veggies to schools across the country.

HealthySkoop_ProjectProduce_Collage (1)Schools who qualify for the grants use the money to purchase fresh fruits and veggies for the kids to sample and educate the kids about healthy eating in fun, creative ways. Seriously–these veggie parties are fun-Think veggie costume contests, smoothie bar mob scenes, and highly-vegucated 6th graders teaching the younger kids what’s what. We know because we go to many and enjoy interacting with the kids, sampling veggies, and talking about nutrition.

We’ve pledged to give 3% of our total revenue to Project Produce. So far, in 2015 alone, we’ve already been able to help out over 20 schools across the country. That’s over 8700 kids who were given the chance to learn about healthy eating habits that will impact the rest of their lives. #SkoopOn!

To learn more about Project Produce, please visit https://healthyskoop.com/project-produce. To support Project Produce by buying Healthy Skoop, check out Lucky Vitamin’s selection of our products here: http://www.luckyvitamin.com/m-6374-skoop

Chia Seeds may be small but are packed with nutrients like zinc and copper that are known to promote hair growth. , Plus, they contain calcium, manganese, and phosphorus, and is a great source of healthy omega-3 fats. Sprinkle some chia seeds on salads or add a tablespoon to your smoothie.

Avocado is a great healthy fat to add to your diet. Plus it keeps your scalp in good shape as well as prevents hair loss as a result of a vitamin deficiency.

Lentils are high in zinc, folic acid and iron. The iron specifically helps the red blood cells carry oxygen needed for cell renewal and strength. So this is a great food, especially if you are vegetarian.

Eggs are extremely helpful in achieving shiny and beautiful hair. In addition to protein, they supply your body with biotin and other b vitamins essential for hair growth.

4 Things Whey Doesn’t Want You to Know About Plant Proteins

Filed Under: Green Living,Health Foods,Supplements at 5:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor
ProteinProtein is an essential nutrient that plays an essential role in many body functions. Protein supplements have been very popular for many years with whey protein often leading the way in sales. But did you know that many vegetarian sources may be an excellent alternative to whey protein? Why? We present you the 4 reasons whey doesn’t want you to know about plant proteins.

1. Omega-3 and Omega-6 Essential Fatty Acids

Plant protein provides not only good quality, pure protein but also additional healthy ingredients such as omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids. For example, hemp protein is loaded with these two fatty acids that have heart health and anti-inflammatory benefits. One of the few Omega-3 sources found in plants, the fatty acids in hemp reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, lower blood pressure, and may even ward off Alzheimer’s disease. Moreover, the Omega-6 fatty acids in hemp stimulate skin and hair growth, maintain bone health, regulate metabolism, and help the brain function.

2. Improve Digestion

Improving the digestive system is another great benefit from a variety of plant sources of protein. Many people tend to have digestion problems with protein supplements such as whey but plant sources can actually help to slow digestion, which prevents spikes in blood sugar and therefore sustains your body’s energy. A diet rich in protein and fiber from plants such as chia and hemp may help promote digestive regularity.

3. Cholesterol Regulation

Plant proteins have a reduced content of essential amino acids in comparison to animal proteins. A significant reduction of limiting amino acids such as methionine, lysine, and tryptophan means lower protein synthesis. However, lower intake of these amino acids provides a preventive effect against cardiovascular disease via cholesterol regulation by an inhibited hepatic phospholipid metabolism.

4. Weight Loss

Some sources of plant protein can also aid in weight-loss by making you feel fuller longer and reducing cravings. Pea protein, chia and hemp protein contain good amounts of fiber and help aid in satiety, which will prevent you from snacking and keep you fuller longer.

4 Healthy Choices for Your Kids

Filed Under: Baby and Child Health,Health Foods,Personal Care,Supplements at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor
KidzIf you are looking to ensure your kids have a healthier, greener life, it is a good idea to check out a few products that can really make a difference for your little ones. Some parents may be looking for a few specific products to improve their children wellness, so we present you a great way to start this with 4 healthy choices for your kids.

1. Probiotics

Adding probiotics to children’s diets may have be helpful in treating viral diarrhea and preventing antibiotic-associated diarrhea. Probiotics supplements contain living microorganisms, such as yogurt with lactobacillus, that change the bacterial balance in the human body. Taking probiotics boosts the kind of helpful, good bacteria in the body that can destroy harmful bacteria and reduce infection.

2. Fish oils

Research suggests that children with ADHD are more likely to show symptoms of low omega-3 levels and have lower levels of omega-3 in their blood than children without ADHD. There is some evidence that increasing omega-3 levels reduces the severity of ADHD-type behaviour, such as inattention, in some children.

3. Organic Foods

No-brainer here. Organic foods should be a priority not only for your little ones but for your whole family. Organic foods are grown without chemicals and pesticides and are definitely the better choice for a healthy, well-balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, lean meats, whole grains and low-fat or fat-free dairy products. Organic foods do have lower levels of pesticides and drug-resistant bacteria and that is extremely important for kids because young children are more vulnerable to chemicals.

4. Organic Baby Wipes

The soft baby skin is very sensitive and can easily be affected by chemicals. It is extremely important to make sure that your baby can use certified organic baby wipes, made with plant ingredients and known to be grown without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. These baby wipes are the purest and safest product for your baby.

5 Health Benefits of Eating Seeds

Filed Under: Health Foods,Immunity,Nutrition at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor
SeedsIf you are not eating seeds, you don’t know what you’re missing. Chia, hemp, flax and many others seeds contain one thing in common: they are healthy foods that can be easily added to a healthy diet. Antioxidants, fatty acids, fiber, vitamins and much more can be found in these wonderful health foods. So, let’s look at 5 health benefits of eating seeds.

1. Antioxidants

Chia seeds are famous for its high amount of antioxidants which provides an endless list of benefits such as anti-aging, improve cellular health and hormone balance. Flax seeds are also packed with antioxidants (lignans), known to fight the production of free radicals, which can damage molecules in cells and contribute not only to aging process but also to several diseases including cancer.

2. Fiber

Chia, flax, hemp are all “high in fiber, low in carbs”. So, if you are looking for that specific combination, make sure to add these seeds to you diet. Almost all the carbs in chia seeds are fiber as its true carb-content is only one gram per ounce. Chia seeds can absorb up to 10-12 times their weight in water, expanding in your stomach, increasing fullness, and helping you eat fewer calories. Flax seeds are also extremely high in both soluble and insoluble fiber which can support colon detoxification, fat loss and reduce sugar cravings.

3. Lower cholesterol

Studies have found that adding flax seeds into your diet can naturally reduce cholesterol levels. The soluble fiber content of flax seeds trap fat and cholesterol in the digestive system. It also traps bile (made from cholesterol) which is then excreted, forcing the body to use up excess cholesterol in the blood to make more and, as a result, lowering cholesterol levels.

4. Healthy Skin and Hair

Promoting healthier skin and hair is another great benefit from eating seeds. Flax seed oil contains essential ALA fats as well as b-vitamins which can help reduce dryness and flakiness. It can also improve symptoms of acne, rosacea, and eczema.

5. Immune Support

Hemp seed oil contain sterols, which can improve immune function and help control cholesterol levels. Also found in sunflower and pumpkin seeds, sterols may also naturally help increase your intake of dietary fiber.

New Brand Spotlight: Field Trip

Filed Under: Health Foods,Nutrition at 5:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor
FieldTripIf you like jerky, Lucky Vitamin has exciting news for you. We are happy to introduce a new brand of natural jerky to our customers: Field Trip.

Field Trip offers jerky products that are hardly ordinary. The company was started to provide a healthy alternative to people who cannot find healthy jerky products at grocery stores and gas stations.

Field Trip jerky is made the old-fashion way: dried and seasoned with natural ingredients and without artificial preservatives and sodium nitrates. Just a traditional cut jerky, done right. All products are all natural and contain no chemical ingredients such as commonly used nitrates, nitrites, preservatives, artificial ingredients, added msg, hydrolyzed corn protein, celery juice powder, disodium inosinate, fructose, corn syrup, maltodextrin, and sodium erythorbate.

Additionally, Field Trip jerky products are gluten-free. For years, jerky producers try to weigh down the finished product by using soy sauces and other unnecessary ingredients that contain wheat. These products have higher sodium, sugar, and long chemical words on the ingredient list as this common strategy may lead consumers to think they are actually getting more protein per bite. Field Trip jerky does not employ any of those tactics and uses only gluten-free reduced sodium soy sauce. The company has tested all jerky products for gluten and every single jerky product contains less than 5 ppm of wheat.
