Are you confused by the numerous brands and categories of water? Here’s a brief overview of the different types of water, as well as their pros and cons.
As an additional note, when buying local from farmers who grow sustainably, it means less pollution will make its way to water sources in the community.
This week’s market mutt is, Jesse, a 3 year old Boston Terrier/Border Collie mix. Jesse’s owner actually helps run the Lil paws Maltese Rescue. You maybe wondering, “well, how did she end up with Jesse?”. Three years ago, while browsing Craig’s list Jesse’s owner ran across an ad that said, “Puppy to get rid of. Will be in back yard. Just come and take her.”. Having a soft spot for dogs, Jesse’s owner went straight over to the address listed and there she was, all alone in the back yard. Now Jesse spends her days playing with the wonderful Maltese doggies coming through the rescue and getting love and attention. She loves swimming, running, and playing fetch. Look for Jesse and her owners stocking up on veggies at Johnson’s Backyard Garden, (that’s where we found them) and ask about their wonderful rescue organization.
This week’s market sprout is Zach. He was enjoying a delicious gluten-free brownie from the Sweet Texas booth. Zach told us that his absolute favorite thing at the market is the kombucha from Budda’s Brew and his favorite flavor is blueberry. Zach and his family told us they love coming to the market as often as possible and they especially love our market because we have so many great vendors. Take Zach’s advice and try the kombucha!
The cliché of supersizing everything, has literally affected the health of many Americans. While huge homes and vehicles provide comfort and plenty of breathing space as a choice for those who can afford these luxuries, what’s so wrong with supersizing foods?
For a few cents more, many restaurants provide patrons the option to supersize meals and drinks. This might seem like a deal to many, but in the long-term, the effects are obesity, high cholesterol and a host of other conditions.
The fact is supersizing is wrong, because it contributes to these types of epidemics, in both children and adults. Let’s explain why:
The average person needs only a specified amount of calories per day, with guidelines being 1500 to 3000 calories the more beverages with artificial sweetener you consume during the day, the more your body will crave sugar.es, based on age, gender and the level of physical activity. When these amounts are exceeded, the result is weight gain.
As an example, a combo meal at McDonalds, complete with a burger, and supersized fries and drinks, contains over 1,000 calories.
Supersizing isn’t limited to take-out alone, it’s seen every day in servings of home-cooked meals. Remember your loving, well intended Mother saying you need to “clean your plate”.
While counting every single calorie consumed can be frustrating and obsessive, the diet can be kept healthy and in moderation with the following tips.
When it comes to downsizing and reducing the waistline, it’s all about portions. Many individuals swear by spreading five smaller meals throughout the day, instead of eating three whopping meals.
It’s also keen to remember that when trying to lose weight and downsize, it’s better to do so with healthy foods. Some of these include sustainably grown, local and seasonal foods. You’ll find that some of the best foods to be found are those available at Cedar Park or Mueller Farmers’ Markets.
