Healthy diets come with a variety of potential benefits, including everything from less brain fog to a lower risk of developing certain diseases and chronic conditions. If you generally eat healthily but occasionally indulge in some junk food, you may be sabotaging the benefits you’d otherwise get from your healthy diet, according to a new study from Rush University Medical Center.

The study focused specifically on the Mediterranean diet, which has been the subject of many studies linking it with positive impacts on health. The researchers used data on 5,001 ‘older adults’ who participated in the Chicago Health and Aging Project.

The project aimed to evaluate the participants’ cognitive health by testing them every three years using a cognitive assessment questionnaire. The participants also provided details about which foods they consumed from a list of 144 options.

By analyzing this data, the researchers behind this new study found that participants

This Community Farm Is Serving Up Healthy, Affordable Food In A South Dallas Food Desert

South Dallas is a food desert, with limited access to healthy, affordable options. Food insecurity has only increased amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dallas’ Paul Quinn College is trying to help with its “We Over Me Farm.”

“We even offered land for like $0 rent, you know, for people to come build whatever they wanted to build and on campus and that wasn’t happening,” said Chris Dowdy, Vice President of Academic Affairs at the historically Black college.

He said once those efforts fell through, the university transformed its football field into the “We Over Me Farm.” Since 2010, the garden has grown more than 30,000 pounds of healthy and affordable food for the community.

Dowdy said the farm has had to shift gears during the COVID-19 pandemic, with more people struggling.

ROCKY RIVER, Ohio — Go Buddha opened its food delivery service in Rocky River last July and is finding the city to be a friendly place. Maybe that’s because the chef really knows food –healthy food — and apparently that is being appreciated.

But now he is going even further, offering the Cleveland area’s very first ATM food service at the west-side restaurant. But let’s step back for a moment.

Chef and owner Joshua Ingraham and his wife, Emily, started the business in October 2019. Ingraham was the former executive chef for the Cleveland Indians and, prior to that, was the culinary director at the Cleveland Clinic.

“We started our restaurant as a sideline,” Ingraham said. “I always wanted to pair food and health. I had to learn plant-based food prep and wanted to go back to the root of simplicity in food. Whether vegan or not, we can all
