Nutrition Nugget: Ultra-Processed Food
Nutrition Nugget! Bite-size, bonus episodes offering tips, tricks, and approachable science. This week, Jenn's talking about ultra-processed food. The statistics show that 57% of adults' diets come from ultra-processed foods, and 67% of children’s daily calories come from empty calories. To identify ultra-processed foods, they are typically wrapped in plastic and contain at least one ingredient you don’t usually find in a kitchen, like emulsifiers and additives. Although there are some benefits to ultra-processed foods, such as being less expensive and more economically accessible, it’s essential to weigh the options to make the right choice for you.

A Grocery Store Run with Your Health Coach
Here’s how to read the nutrition labels to know if what you’re buying is truly healthy. And for the items you’ll buy anyway, how to build a meal around them so your health (and weight loss) doesn’t suffer. When you go grocery shopping, do you actually read the nutrition labels, or do you just grab whatever looks “healthy” and call it a day? Today Jenn is taking us through Whole Foods together to review various products and evaluate which items are the best options. She provides in-depth information about breakfast foods, pasta, snacks, items in the frozen isles, and snacks. Many things in the store are packaged and marketed as healthy options, but upon looking more at the nutrition facts, it’s clear that they are not quite what they market themselves to be. Jenn gives helpful information in this episode and great insight into how to read labels. Tune in today to learn if the items that frequent your shopping cart are really the best options. The Salad With a Side of Fries podcast is hosted by Jenn Trepeck, discussing wellness and weight loss for real life, clearing up the myths, misinformation, bad science & marketing surrounding our nutrition knowledge and the food industry.

Nutrition Nugget: Progress
Nutrition Nugget! Bite-size, bonus episodes offering tips, tricks, and approachable science. This week, Jenn's talking about progress. We often want to see immediate improvement in numbers, and those numbers either make or break our mood. Instead of focusing on all the things that you “should have done” to change the numbers to something you wanted to see, say the motto: “I may not be where I want to be, but I’m sure as hell not where I was.” This can be your new mantra as you focus on all the great things you are doing for your health and how you are moving your health forward.

Nutrition Nugget: Couscous
Nutrition Nugget! Bite-size, bonus episodes offering tips, tricks, and approachable science. This week, Jenn's talking about couscous. Some benefits of couscous are that it is rich in selenium, a decent plant-based protein option, and is easy to cook! It takes on whatever flavor you cook it in, which can make it very adaptable for the meal you are making. However, the carb count is significant, which may spike your blood sugar. Jenn feels there are better options on the market that are more well-rounded, but this doesn’t mean you have to eliminate it entirely. It can be a great option to switch up your routine or get you started on moving towards more whole foods. Like what you're hearing?
