Health Food For Foodies

 Chefs and doctors are teaming up to create healthy dishes you might actually crave

 Click on the link to get to the article. When you see the picture above click on where it says Interactive: Culinary Rx and scroll down a bit. Clicking on each food will tell you its benefits.

"Though connecting food and health has a long history, this collaboration between doctors and chefs represents a newer approach—studying and sharing how certain foods can prevent diseases or help manage them. In May, the Goldring Center for Culinary Medicine at Tulane University will debut the nation's first teaching kitchen affiliated with a medical school. Located in New Orleans, it will be a place for students, doctors, chefs and the local community to investigate the role food can play in managing obesity and related diseases." 
 "It is the goal of Mr. Nischan and other chefs collaborating with doctors and farmers to advocate for the role that nutrition can play in overall wellness by gathering and offering up data that supports their claims. Encouraging people to eat more of these foods—by showing how delicious they can be—is the first step."
