Last Friday Farm Shop participated in SpringFest, a program of HeartBeets at San Francisco General Hospital. HeartBeets is a superb example of a program working to unite good nutrition, social justice, local food and the medical community.
New Federal Dietary Guidelines Released
Every five years the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Agriculture update their guidelines for healthy eating. The 2010 dietary guidelines, released at the end of January 2011, offer more of the same advice as past ones: drink water instead of soda, cut back on salt, and eat more fruits and veggies.
Oh, and exercise a lot more. Enjoy your food, but eat less.
