6 months old baby started eating organic made baby food. Now is constipated.she's had sweet potatoes, banana, Apple's, peas, squash, zucchini. ?

Why the rush: Solids in the first year do not help the baby grow better.Breast milk is an adequate nutrition source, and solids today are primarily a training process to transition them to the table. Apples and bananas are constipating agents. Prunes & pears loosen stools. I'd quit the rush through the list of foods and just keep it simple. ...Read more

Eating raw rice in pregnancy effect baby?

I hope this helps and best of luck with the pregnancy! ...Read more

Does my baby need rice cereal or water?

Probably not: You do not mention the age of the infant, but no infant under the age of 4 months needs cereal, and water only serves to dilute the calories they are taking in. The only reason to feed the infant water is if they are vomiting, and you cannot get them to drink formula, pedialyte, or gatorade, in that order. ...Read more

Iam gluten free gaining weight why if i avoid all bread items i eat chicken beans beef along side salad no dressing rice or corn cereal fruits?

Gaining weight: That's great that you are not consuming a lot of carbs and are watching your diet. You also need to look at the overall quantity (and calories) of what you are eating as well. Are you exercising too? Without physical activity (cardio), it is hard to lose weight. You have to burn more calories than you are consuming. You might be doing this already and have another reason for weight gain. ...Read more

Is this a healthy dinner? 1 activia yogurt, serving of almonds, 1 sweet potatoe, 1 boiled egg, and some baby brussel sprouts? Im 18 5'8 and 190 lbs

Is this a healthy dinner? 1 activia yogurt, serving of almonds, 1 sweet potatoe, 1 boiled egg, and some baby brussel sprouts? Im 18 5'8 and 190 lbs

OK- healthier if...: This has potential but i advise choosing organic yogurt;conventional brands like activia are from cows fed gmo corn & given antibiotics & rbgh(bovine growth hormone)-avoid! the same applies to eggs. Please eat organic eggs or they're from chickens fed gmo's & antibiotics! almonds, sweet potato & brussel sprouts are all healthy- while organic is best, these are acceptable if grown conventionally. ...Read more

Is it bad to eat raw glutinous rice flour?!

Is it bad to eat raw glutinous rice flour?!

Raw glutinous rice flour: No, is good!!This high raw rice salad is satisfying, delicious and oh so nutritious! High raw rice salad What on earth is a “high raw” salad anyway? Well, high raw basically means “mostly raw”. In other words, a high percentage of the ingredients are raw, so you know you’re eating as much raw food as possible. This particular high raw rice salad was created after I read “The Starch Solution” by Dr John McDougall. His approach to healthy eating involves eating as much low-fat, high-carbohydrate (starchy), vegan food as you like, and there are plenty of people who’ve lost heaps of weight and, more importantly, healed all kinds of illnesses and medical conditions by following his guidelines. So when we’re looking for ways recently to increase our calories without adding more fat to our diet, this was one of the ideas we tried. ...Read more
