Mediterranean Diet Most healthy diets include fruits, vegetables, fish and whole grains, and limit unhealthy fats. Following the Mediterranean diet may lead to more stable blood sugars, lower cholesterol and triglycerides, and a lower risk of heart disease and other health problems. The Mediterranean-style diet has fewer meats and carbohydrates and more plant-based foods and monounsaturated (good) fat than a typical American diet. If you're looking for a heart-healthy eating plan, the Mediterranean diet might be right for you... “Research has shown that the traditional Mediterranean diet reduces the risk of heart disease. In fact, an analysis of more than 1.5 million healthy adults demonstrated that following a Mediterranean diet was associated with a reduced risk of death from heart disease and cancer, as well as a reduced incidence of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases” according to the staff at the Mayo Clinic
The Mediterranean diet:
•Plant-based meals, with just small amounts of meat and chicken, when they are used more servings of grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts, and •Foods that naturally contain high amounts of fiber •Replacing butter with healthy fats, such as olive oil •Using herbs and spices instead of salt to flavor foods •Limiting red meat to no more than a few times a month •Eating fish and poultry at least twice a week
The diet also recognizes the importance of being physically active and enjoying meals with family and friends. Remember to live love, laugh and share the love of a healthy lifestyle.
We like to give something back to the children in our community that's why we came up with the idea to give students a free scoop of ice cream for 1 A on their report card or a special award during the school year 2013 - 2014.
We also offer an after school kids special on smoothies for only $2.50

The importance of a Healthy Diet
Most of us don’t get enough nutrients from fruits and vegetables. The current recommendation for a healthy diet is to fill half your plate at each meal with fruits and vegetables. Do you get that much? Most of us do not, especially our children....Most of us suffer from a daily fruit and vegetable consumption gap. Putting the right foods into our bodies is a struggle.
Fast food drive-thrus and all-you-can-eat buffets lie and wait on every corner. Perserveatives, fat, salt, and sugar have been added to almost every package on the shelf at the grocery store. Grabbing a bag of chips or a bottled of soda at the convenience store is easier than peeling an orange or tossing a salad.
The message is clear: We need more fruits and vegetables and other whole food-based nutrition in our diets every day. It's the one thing people agree that we can do to improve our health and reduce our risk of chronic diseases, such as stoke, cancer and heart disease. And that is what inspired us to open Fuel For Your Body, Promote Health and Wellness to our community as well as, our children.But healthy eating takes time, planning, and can cost a lot of money. With today's busy lifestyles – from busy moms to traveling executives to active seniors – it's easy to miss out on the nutrients we need from fruits and vegetables. That's why adding whole foods from Fuel For Your Body to your diet is an important step for you and every member of your family. It's a simple, affordable way to fuel your body with good nutrition.

Antioxidants from the Orchard
Whole food based nutrition delivers powerful antioxidants that provide your body protection, because it relies on fruits and vegetables. According to the National Cancer Institute, antioxidants are “substances that may protect cells from the damage caused by unstable molecules known as free radicals. Examples of antioxidants include beta-carotene, lycopene, vitamins C and E and other substances. Many of these antioxidant substances come from fruits and vegetables.”

Part of a healthy diet, fruits and vegetables contain a powerful array of antioxidants that offer protection for our bodies.
