Question: My doctor has told me that I need to increase the amount of fiber in my diet? Can I just take fiber supplements?
Are you in a bit of a cooking or baking slump?
There are so many diets and diet books out there. Before you buy that book or try that diet your friend or neighbor recommended ask yourself these 5 questions:
Question: I’m 75 years old and don’t really cook much. My doctor has said I need to reduce sodium. What are my options?
I get a lot of different food safety and food storage questions. Last week’s was about Ingles Rotisserie Chicken. A customer wrote asking, “How long can rotisserie chicken be refrigerated before it needs to be thrown out or eaten?"
We regularly see articles debating the benefits of drinking coffee. Many of us (myself included!) can’t really start the day without a cup of hot coffee.
Question: I’m hearing a lot about foods that reduce inflammation and don’t really understand what that means or what I should be eating?
It might be surprising to hear a registered dietitian with a degree in Human Nutrition and over 25 years of experience in nutrition saying, “Food won’t fix everything,” but it’s true.
It’s that time of year when think about gift giving and may struggle to have the time or finances to buy for everyone.
Q: I am having a lot of stomach issues and a friend suggested I may have celiac disease and I should stop eating gluten. Is this good advice?
