Living a healthy lifestyle is central to maintaining wellness throughout your lifetime.

There are many behaviors that influence your health - what you eat, how you sleep, if you smoke, how active you are, how you manage stress - to name just a few. You can improve your quality of life by making simple, positive changes to your daily routine.
Where to start?

What would pesto be without basil, or salsa without cilantro? Whether used by the pinch or by the bunch, fresh herbs bring the flavors of a meal together by infusing amazing aromas and flavors.
Summer gifts us with fresh basil and mint, two of the most important culinary herbs. Sweet basil is the most common type. This member of the mint family has been used as a medicinal plant, and its oils and extracts are said to have antioxidant and antibacterial properties. It offers a good amount of blood-clotting vitamin K , as well as vitamin A, manganese, and magnesium.
Eating a diet rich in vegetables and fruits every day is vital for good health and to protect us from developing diseases, such as heart disease, obesity, diabetes and certain types of cancer.
This is because food is medicine! Vegetables and fruits are important sources of various vitamins, mineral, antioxidants, phytochemicals and probably many unknown or poorly studied compounds that have protective properties and health promoting effects.
Often labelled a "superfood," blueberries are low in calories and incredibly good for you. The two most common types are Highbush blueberries and Lowbush blueberries. Highbush are the most commonly grown species in the US. Lowbush are often referred to as "wild" blueberries and are typically smaller and richer in some antioxidants.
Summer is the prime time for grilling. Whether your menu includes simple burgers or something more elaborate, a little preparation can help you serve up a healthy meal.
It is important that you start out clean. Don’t let the charred buildup on your grill transfer to your meal. Use a wire brush to clean your grill. Then wipe it down with a cloth or a bunch of paper towels to make sure that no grill-cleaning bristles will get into your food. Exposing protein-rich meat, poultry, and fish to high heat and open flames creates chemicals linked to various types of cancer; and when fat drips and burns on the grill, the resulting smoke also contains toxic substances linked to cancer. You can reduce the formation of these compounds in several ways: Line the grill with foil perforated with holes, cook for longer at a lower temperature, or have a spray bottle filled with water handy to control fatty flare-ups.
Corn is the largest agricultural crop developed in the United States, and has been grown in North America by the Native Americans for over 7,000 years. Not only is corn a versatile summer vegetable, great for barbeques, but it’s also good for our bodies too.
A cup of yellow corn kernels has 4 grams of fiber which can prevent constipation and promote good cardiovascular health. Each serving also has 14 percent of the daily value (%DV) of vitamin C and 12 %DV for manganese, two antioxidants that play a role in bone health.
Summer is here! With the warm weather and sun come tasty seasonal vegetables like summer squash, zucchini being the most recognizable. Summer squash is high in vitamin C and low in calories and can be a savory or sweet addition to your summer menu.
Longer days and warmer air say picnic season! Everyone is eager to head and stay outdoors after a long and frosty winter. Picnics make great outings to be outside in nature or enjoy the city landscape, get some vitamin D from sun exposure and enjoy a good time with your love one, kids, or the whole family. There are so many healthy and yummy food choices you can pack.
