Study: Tea, not coffee, protects brain

A study has shown that drinking two to three cups of black tea a day can reduce the risk of developing early signs of dementia by almost 50%. The study did not find the same protective results with coffee, meaning it's unlikely caffeine is the beneficial ingredient.

Tips for Healthy Eating

What is a healthy diet?
First and foremost, a healthy diet includes all foods. There are no good or bad foods in a healthy diet. The key is to balance healthy foods with foods that you enjoy, but may not be as good for you.

Eating should be fun!
It’s OK to eat and enjoy your favorite foods. Don’t feel guilty! When you choose to eat less nutritious foods just remember to pay attention to portion size and not eat too much.

Relax about eating!
Listen to your body. There is a simple rule to follow. Eat when you are hungry and stop when you are full! It takes your stomach 20 minutes to recognize how full it is… so slow down and really taste your food. Enjoy each bite and pay attention to your body’s hunger and fullness signals.
 
One of the healthiest things you can do for yourself – to improve your life and reduce the risk of chronic disease and obesity – is to maintain a healthy, well-balanced diet. All of BluNuvo’s menus reflect our deep commitment to a healthy approach toward nutrition.
