What do you think is a moderate amount of pizza? I would say 1-2 slices, but I can bet that my 20-year-old brother would say the whole pizza. Eating food in moderation has become a common piece of advice for weight-maintenance and weight-loss. Being a healthy weight is the most important thing you can do to prevent cancer, after not smoking, according to AICR research.
Memorial Day is right around the corner, making it the perfect time to start planning a cookout staple: pasta salad. Traditional pasta salad made with mayonnaise and white pasta is heavy and high in saturated fat and refined carbohydrates. But it’s actually an easy dish to lighten up — in calories and taste — with fresh, seasonal ingredients. Making the pasta whole wheat also adds fiber, which is known to reduce cancer risk and keep you full for longer.
The vibrant colorful ingredients make this Spring Pasta Salad pop and the flavor improves as it sits. You can store it in the fridge for 3 to 4 days and use for leftover lunches or dinners. It is hearty enough to be served as a main, but also pairs well with grilled shrimp or salmon.
Last year, you lovely lot supported my global day of action, Food Revolution Day, shouting about the need to teach every child about good food, in turn helping them to be healthier and happier. Today, we’re again making a big noise about the global Food Revolution, with our fifth annual day of action, Food Revolution Day, and I wanted to briefly update you on what we’re planning in order to ensure that 2016 is a breakthrough year.
Firstly, rather than focusing all our efforts on a single day, we’re using the Food Revolution to launch an ongoing, global campaign to provoke debate and inspire positive, meaningful change in the way we access, consume and understand food. We want to inspire and encourage people all over the world to make better, more informed decisions around food, and in turn, empower them to support and push for positive change in the wider food industry.
