Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Historically primarily a male affliction, the gender gap in heart disease has narrowed in a somewhat ironic turn of events for women who have sought equality with their male peers. In fact, men today have slightly fewer heart attacks than women, although this is partly because men don’t live as long as women and also tend to have fatal heart attacks at a younger age.[i]
This is one of my favorite DIY Sushi recipes. Working above a sushi restaurant is tempting to say the least but buying sushi for lunch everyday can be pricey. I manage to make 10 hearty rolls at home for under $20 (keep in mind I already had brown rice and sauces)! I feel a lot better about spending $2 on lunch compared to the $11 restaurant price! There is no need to be intimidated when it comes to making sushi. There is also no need to purchase a sushi rolling mat (unless you want one of course). I find the most important factor in making successful sushi to be good sticky rice.
Dear dudes of Dude’s Foods, I need to level with you. I still struggle with depression. Although I have been recovered from bipolar depression for several years now thanks to nutrition therapy, I still have days where those old thoughts and habits creep up again. This past week I have put a lot of pressure on myself to write a memorable and informative blog post and that pressure has affected my mood. It’s time to take a step back and breathe.
My name is Aaron Mello and this is the first installment in a monthly series I’ll be writing about men’s health and nutrition called “Dude’s Foods”! Why focus on men in particular, you might wonder?
The Nutrition Therapy Institute’s MNT (Master Nutrition Therapist) graduates are amazing! In the past year, we have had 32 students complete their studies. They have spent thousands of hours learning about nutrition and the science behind it. With passion and perseverance, they are ready to make their mark in the area of nutrition. They are well equipped to succeed! We had the opportunity to celebrate our graduates last Friday evening.
What better way to nourish yourself during the hot summer days than with a refreshing kale cashew mint salad? This salad is great for lunch or dinner. No-heat cooking this time of year is such a relief! Dig in to this refreshing salad and let us know what you think!

2 cups cabbage (green or red) – shredded
We are very proud of Michelle Frett and her recent accomplishment of becoming a Natural Food Chef. Her story is a real testament to the idea that it is never too late to choose a different direction…
I became a Natural Food Chef because:
I wanted to start a new career that I would enjoy. I realized that the two things (besides my kids) that I am most excited about are cooking and nutrition/natural health. It just made sense to put the two together and make that a career.
