There are a lot of myths about fruit consumption. Vegetables in general offer a wider range of nutrients, more fiber, phytochemicals, and a lower sugar load for your body compared to fruit. However, if fruit consumption means you’re eating fewer baked goods or processed foods than you would if you were not eating fruit, you’re in good shape when it comes to health and feeling your best. Moderation, variety, and whole organic foods – and how you feel – remain your best nutrition guidelines.

5 Ways Diet Can Improve Brain Health

Navigating executive function issues can be challenging and fraught with emotion. Frustration is common for everyone. Children often feel shame, isolation, and hopelessness. Parents often feel guilt, anxiety, and anger. These emotions are difficult for the child and the parent, and they can wreak havoc on the parent-child relationship thus compounding the problem. Being compassionate towards yourself is key. Being compassionate with your child will let him or her know they are not alone or misunderstood, give them the security and confidence to learn and evolve, and strengthen your relationship. From there, you will both be in a much better position to find and sustain solutions that work for both of you.

Grated golden beets add a sweetness to any salad and are a great addition to the colorful, yummy combination of veggies in this glorious, nutrient-packed salad. Golden beets are packed with fiber and nutrients such as folate, beta-carotene, magnesium, iron, and fiber.  Beets can be eaten raw or cooked, but they add a wonderful crunch when grated raw. And while they can be coarsely chopped into a salad, their sweetness really shines when they are grated.
