Halloween Ghosts and Goblins!
I like to stock my house with lots of festive treats that don’t overload my diet on sugar and fat but still let me celebrate the holiday. One way to do this is to start dressing up your daily fruit. Of course I cannot take credit for all of these ideas but from a ‘hope to be dietitian’ standpoint I think these hit the “A” list for Halloween treats. Read More

Sodium is all the Buzz!

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

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
