Food and nutrition.

Juice fasting

The term juicing is often associated with fasting. Indeed, juice fasts have become synonymous with cleansing and detoxification, thanks in large part to television infomercials and medical programs.

Mineral supplements

People who do not eat a balanced diet or those who restrict some type of foods may need mineral supplements. Mineral supplements should be chosen with care, having only the prescribed amount, as many minerals are toxic in excess.

Calories in wine

Most people have a general idea how many calories they consume when it comes to solid foods, although it is quite common to forget that when we drink, we are still consuming calories. So how many calories are in wine?

Juicing for seniors

Nutrition is an important concern for many seniors, their families and/or caretakers. There is so much conflicting information available, and seniors themselves may be bewildered by their changing appetites and eating patterns.
