How Do We Avoid Malnutrition?
Hordes of nutrition surveys over the last few decades have only confirmed what most individuals instinctively know; the quintessential 'balanced American diet' is anything but. In generations past, a typical American family naturally obtained all the required nutrients just by virtue of eating a proper meal three times a day. But now, we're busier, and seem to value convenience over eating healthfully. Processed foods have often been stripped of nutrients since it can last longer or tastes better this way. The most important tool to understand why America is suffering from malnutrition is to first be aware of what your body can and can't do on its own.

Best South American Coffee Blends
Coffee is the most important meal of the day. After drinking a cup of coffee, you're ready to face the world and all the challenges that the day can bring for you. You're stimulated with the caffeine and your energy levels zoom. However, all coffee is not created equal. The coffee you get in Africa is different from the one you would be from Asia or America. This is due in part, to the location the beans are grown. Each location has a different soil that produces different flavors. In fact, this accounts for the fact that different coffees from different regions have different characteristics. Therefore, if you're looking for the best coffee, then you need coffee grown in Central America. There the beans are not too bitter or acidic and have smooth flavors, whereas the beans from South America have an even and well-rounded taste with moderate acidity and sweetness. But having just one type of bean doesn't necessarily give you the best flavors. That's why many companies rely on blending their beans. This enhances the quality of coffee and creates a proprietary or signature blend that consumers associate a certain type of coffee to a particular brand or create a unique flavor. So whether you are looking for organic coffee, or just believe that coffee is good for you, these South American coffee blends will be the best part of your morning.
Most Successful Female Chefs
We live in a golden age of chefs. Between your Batalis and Bouluds, your Vongerichtens and Riperts, your Masas and Morimotos, New York is bubbling over with cooking legends who not only practice world-class gastronomy but also manage to turn themselves into millionaires. So here’s a question: Where are all the women? Despite the fact that women make up the vast majority of home cooks, and despite four-plus decades of modern feminism, women still run just a small percentage of top kitchens in New York and elsewhere. In a predominantly male dominated industry, female chefs are still an exception, but women are moving to stake their claim as the best out there. These ten women have made their names well known for creating delicious dishes and inspiring younger generations to follow their passions in the culinary arts.
Can Some Food Actually Make You Hungrier?
If some foods can make you hungrier than before, than what's the point of dieting? According to a study done in 2012, 52 percent of Americans believed doing their taxes was easier than figuring out how to eat healthy. That makes selecting the nearly 2,000 pounds of food Americans eat each year more of a challenge than a basic chore. In addition to figuring out what to eat, some would argue that figuring out the best times to eat specific items to power yourself throughout the day is a hassle. These days, it seems like there are caveats in place warning of the pitfalls for every food group–even fruit, which we are recommended to eat as many as, but NOT more than, four servings daily. While that is surprising, there are some foods that have been on the list of food no-nos for years. These foods are tasty entering the mouth but they add no nutritional value, and can seriously damage both your waistline and quality of life. Some food has been proven to make you hungrier, completely opposite its intended effect of curbing your hunger pains. That has a lot to do with salt and sugar content, whether naturally occurring or added to a food for enhanced flavor.
