About half of all U.S. deaths from heart disease, stroke and Type 2 diabetes are linked to poor diets, according to a new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
And eating more — or less — of just 10 types of food can help raise or lower the risk of death from these causes.
Scientists at Tufts University identified the foods that seem to contribute the most to the risk. At the top of the list? Salt. Next, the high intake of red meat and processed meats such as bacon was linked to 8 percent of the deaths. And sugary drinks were a factor in 7.4 percent of the deaths.
Bringing healthy food to the table, especially for the growing children, has never been this easy. We soak the seeds the first day for 24 hours. Then every morning and evening we fill the jars with water to do a shake and rinse. So, simply fill the jars, shake and pour the water out. once you’ve shaken the water out of the jars simply lay the jars on their side next to the sink. Keep them close and convenient. In six days you’ll have jars full of clean and organic sprouts for salads and sides. The nutritional value is exponentially higher when the beans open and the taproot grows. This is a great solution for anybody who feels they are too busy to grow their own healthy foods. With simple old-school methods no one has excuses and there is no light required. Moreover, the sweet and crunchy experience usually wins over the children.
From our experience, if you have an active lifestyle and need easily digestible foods that translate into quick and clean energy, this is definitely a route for you guys to explore.
I hope this message finds you guys excited about getting ready for the spring time.

Despite being a thinspo/anorexia blog, I would never encourage people to choose my path. All of my followers probably want to lose weight - so here are a few healthy diet tips!
1. NEVER GET TOO HUNGRY - Hunger is a primal urge that’s difficult to deny. When you’re famished, it’s hard to hold off until you can find healthy food. As a result, you end up eating anything that’s not nailed down, and typically, regretting it. Planning meals and snacks works wonders to head off the intense hunger that can do a number on your best intentions to eat right.
2. USE THE RED, ORANGE AND GREEN RULE - At each meal include one food that is any of these colors. By focusing on these foods, you’ll be sure to get some produce on your plate and won’t have space on your plate for higher-calorie fare.
3. DRINK ENOUGH WATER - Water is essential for keeping the body hydrated and we’re actually more likely to retain “water weight” by not drinking enough of it rather than by having too much.
4. KICK THE SALT HABIT - Salt is a big contributor to weight gain and often a reason why the numbers on the scale aren’t going down. The average American consumes twice the amount of salt they should have each day, leading to weight gain, bloating, and the inability to lose stubborn pounds. Salt can also make you feel hungrier and thirstier, so check the nutrition labels for high sodium levels and choose fresh over packaged or restaurant foods. You’ll see a puffy face and belly go down quicker just by cutting back on your sodium intake and choosing more natural foods.
5. DON’T THINK DIET SODA WILL MAKE YOU LOSE WEIGHT - Just…just don’t, okay?
6. FOCUS ON NUTRIENT BALANCE INSTEAD OF COUNTING ALL THE CALORIES - Making sure an eating occasion has carbs, protein, and fat instead of just counting calories (like a 100 calorie pack) delivers better energy and fat loss results by giving the body what it needs, like quick- and longer-digesting nutrients so you stay full longer.
7. KEEP A FOOD JOURNAL - Keeping a food record is vital to losing weight and keeping it off long term.
