Posted by Eskaton on Apr 11, 2017 2:44:23 PM

While the saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” may seem cliché, there is some truth according to an Australian study. Data shows that eating at least three servings of fruits and vegetables a day can help lower stress, especially for women. In the study, eating between three and four servings of fruits or veggies a day was linked to a 12% lower risk of stress compared to those who ate zero or no servings; for women, this percentage jumped up to 18%.

Posted by Eskaton on Mar 15, 2017 1:23:40 PM

The February 2017 flood crisis took a giant toll on over 188,000 Northern California residents living in cities surrounding the Oroville Dam. Many families without shelter found themselves living in their cars in parking lots or taking refuge at fairgrounds in more than four counties. Even 578 inmates at the Butte County Jail were transported to Alameda County, about 170 miles away. “I recognize that this is displacing a lot of people,” Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea told reporters.

6 Supermarket Shopping Tips

Posted by Eskaton on Mar 6, 2017 6:41:23 PM
Be sure to keep these helpful tips in mind for your next trip to the supermarket. These tips will help you make more mindful nutrious decisions, as well as make for an easy trip to the grocery store.


  1. Make a List – by having what you need written down ahead of time it will help you resist temptation and speed up the shopping process.
  2. Don’t go to the store hungry – you are more likely to impulse buy if you shop while hungry.
  3. Shop the 4 corners of the store – this is where you will find the most nutritious items. (Fruit and Vegetables in the produce section; Whole grains in the bakery; Low-fat milk/yogurt in the dairy aisle; and Lean Protein in the meat/fish/poultry department).
  4. Read the label - bypass the front of the package and rely mainly on the nutrition facts panel and ingredients lists. If you’re looking to bump up fiber or protein intake, or lower fat/saturated fat intake, the nutrition facts panel can be a one-stop shop for all nutrients and can simplify the process of comparing products (make sure you also check the serving size).
  5. Don’t buy at eye level - look high and low on store shelves for the least expensive items in their category — and often the most nutritious. Brands pay higher slotting fees to be placed at eye level, and those costs are generally passed on to consumers.
  6. Try something new – go out of your comfort zone and try something you haven’t tried before, who knows you may end up liking it.
