John’s Pizzeria, NYC – Not to Be Missed

Last night we discovered John’s. It first opened its doors in 1929 on Sullivan Street in Greenwich Village. After losing its lease, owner John Sasso dismantled the brick oven and moved it to it’s currant Bleecker Street address when it still turns out the renowned and legendary pizza. In 1984 John’s opened a branch on 64th Street on the Upper East Side. Its continued success made the search for someplace as unique as the pizza a goal. As a result, the newest John’s in Times Square opened in 1997. Built in 1888, this site once was the Gospel Tabernacle…

How Does Food Synergy Give You More Energy?

The science of “food synergy”, “food combining” or “food coupling” began being evaluated by modern scientists after the discovery of micro nutrients. Food combining is the practice of eating certain foods together that increase the amount of nutrition your body will absorb from the foods. The more nutrients you get, the more energetic you can feel. Why not learn a little about food combining, and make the food you’re already enjoying even healthier for you? This doesn’t mean the (now discredited) notion of avoiding carbs & proteins together or the avoidance of mixing fruits and vegetables under the false…

2000 Calorie Diet Menu and Meal Plan

The 2000 calorie diet plan limits a person’s daily intake of food to 2000 calories. This is almost close to the normal amount of calories a person consumes in a day. But the difference between a 2000 calorie diet plan and a normal everyday eating is that the 2000 calories from a diet plan come chiefly from fruits, vegetables, nuts and other nutritional food stuff rather than from foods that contain saturated fats. Following the 2000 calorie diet will keep you hale, healthy, energetic and brisk. With this 2000 calorie meal plan, your odds of reducing your weight and…

Paleo Diet – Lose Weight and Eat Healthy

Paleo Diet – The Basics Do I need a Paleo Diet Plan? 50,000 years ago, when men were hunters and gatherers, it was okay to “eat-up” in order to develop layers of fat, as that would be useful in the winter when food was hard to find. That’s not a problem anymore. Today, we get a constant supply of processed and refined foods such as chocolates, sodas and sugars, which are really bad for us. They cannot be synthesized by the kidney and liver quickly enough as they contain so many simple carbohydrates – which become metabolized into the…

Foods That Balance the pH Level – Going From an Acidic to Alkaline Body

An imbalance in the pH level (acid-alkaline) of your body can affect your nervous system (depression), cardiovascular system (heart disease), muscles (fatigue) and skin (aging). If your body is too acidic, mineral reserves are depleted and your body uses what ever source it can take minerals from, a process which can cause health problems. Whereas, in an alkaline environment, your body reaches an ideal weight and corrects health challenges naturally. In order to provide your body with the nutrients it needs, introduce alkaline foods into your diet. Alkaline foods neutralize acids and toxins in the blood, lymph and tissues,…

Foods to Include in a Diabetic Diet

It’s easy to say what a diabetic shouldn’t eat: sugars, simple carbohydrates, alcoholic beverages. Sometimes it seems that all the tasty foods are forbidden – pizza, donuts, cake, ice cream, brownies, etc. Is a diabetic doomed to a diet of broccoli and broiled fish? Not at all. For the most part, people can eat normal foods – but wisely. The biggest problem diabetics have is consuming too many calories. Simply limiting caloric intake to 1500-1800 calories would stabilize blood sugars for many patients. Not only that, but body weight and serum cholesterol would drop as well. If you are…

What Makes Caribbean Food Special?

The sea, sun and sand make the Caribbean a popular tourist destination. But aside from the beautiful weather, the amazing landscape and the total Caribbean experience, Caribbean food is unique and appetizing.

A lot of Caribbean food…

Flowers You Can Eat – Nasturtiums

Flowers, so bright and cheerful, raise your vibe without even trying. Edible flowers take that energy into the centre of your being, especially when they also have medicinal properties like the gorgeous nasturtium. Their flowers are bright trumpets, heralding sunny days. As children we used to pick the nasturtium flowers, bite off the point at the back of the flower and suck out the nectar, the merest fairy sized sip of sweetness. The plants grow easily and prolifically from seed, tumbling out of planters with abandon, flowering all shades of fire colours from vermilion to ochre. All they need…
