1% Milk: The All-Round Ingredient

1% Milk: The All-Round Ingredient
1% milk, it is an all-round cooking ingredient. I used to believe that it would not work for cooking. I was wrong! It works great for cooking whether baking, preparing a cream-based sauce, or preparing a dipping sauce for battering. Our nutritionist, Stephanie DeBerry, prepared delicious recipes using 1% low-fat milk as an ingredient in the ONIE Test Kitchen. Read More

Pack it in with 1% low-fat milk!
1% low-fat milk is packed with vitamins, minerals and macronutrients. Did you know that people who drink milk have higher intakes of vitamin D, vitamin A, vitamin B12, calcium, potassium, protein, and other nutrients than non-milk users? Read More

1% Milk-No Added Sugar

1% Milk-No Added Sugar
At ONIE we agree that watching the sugar you eat is a very legitimate concern. Blood glucose levels are directly affected by the amount of sugar we eat. Similarly, carbohydrates are broken down into sugar. Too much sugar in the diet can cause you to gain weight and damage your overall health. The US Dietary Guidelines recommend that we reduce consuming foods with added sugars or foods that have caloric sweeteners added to them during processing, preparation, or after preparation.

Sodium is all the Buzz!
Too much sodium is all the buzz at ONIE. They are pouring on the salt for us and now most Americans consume 3436 mg of sodium/salt every day, which is much more than the 2300 mg recommended daily amount. Read More

The Salty Facts

The Salty Facts
Yikes, our children are consuming too much sodium! The Center for Disease Control and Prevention just released findings that 90% of school-aged children are consuming 3,279 mg of sodium/salt every day. It is hard to believe that 9 out of 10 ten kids are consuming almost 70% more mg of sodium than calories and it is affecting their health (1,681 mg of sodium for every 1,000 calories consumed).

Chicken Fingers

Chicken Fingers
The featured recipe of the week is chicken fingers. A family favorite but with a special twist. As indicated on the picture, it is 1 to 1 certified, which tells me that the salt/sodium in a single serving does not exceed the amount of calories per serving. This is an easy rule of thumb to help me limit my salt/sodium intake to 2300 mg per day, the daily recommend amount. Read More

Experience a Bit of France!
Today, I wish to share with you what I know about nutrition and eating habits in France. It may be interesting to compare what we do in France to the USA. We have a National Nutrition and Health Program in France called Manger-Bouger or Eat and Move. It means eat 5 fruits and veggies per day and do a minimum of 30 minutes of physical activity per day.

Watermelon, the State Vegetable

08/06/2014
Nothing says summer for me like watermelon and ONIE was offering tastings of watermelon last weekend. For us Oklahomans, watermelon is the official state vegetable. If you like factoids, here is another one. A watermelon is one of the few foods that is both a fruit and vegetable. Yes, the watermelon is a superfood. One slice has almost a fifth of the daily recommended amount of Vitamin A and C. Read More
