A Nutritional Guide to Strengthening Your Child’s Immune System
NTI Blog
by Amber Frazier
5d ago
Receiving a bundle of joy can be incredible, exhausting, and a constant opportunity to learn to love. For a child, this completely new world outside of the womb invites exploration of every kind — whether it be the sticks and stones in the backyard to social interactions with other kids and parents. The unseen learning behind each interaction happens inside a child’s immune system. As the child continues to explore the world, things you would never think of ingesting pop into their mouths, noses, eyes, and ears. Thus begins the not-so-fun experience of sickness. Though this exposure is a norma ..read more

We all have our favorite foods that we could eat almost every day. And everyone has times when they get into food ruts, preparing some of the same meals over and over because it’s easy or we’re out of ideas. There’s nothing wrong with having some foods on repeat, especially if you’re low on time or money. But part of a healthy diet should include variety. If you’ve ever met with a nutrition therapist, they may have underscored that diversity in what you consume can help your health. Or if you are a nutrition therapist, you may have learned this valuable principle. But have you considered why v ..read more

As we begin to feel comfortable with writing this new year’s numerals, planning can shift from reactionary to fun — especially when it comes to looking at seasonal foods. Though our grocery stores pack the same variety of foods throughout the year, seasonal foods are freshest and as a result, contain more nutrients. Eating locally also provides a sustainable, relational aspect to choosing food — making a trip to the local farmer’s market more fun and beneficial to your community.  And, it can be made easier by using a tool to guide you to the seasonal produce offerings.

Health Benefits of Pumpkin Spice: Allspice + Cloves
NTI Blog

We have come to our first frost and the last two spices in the pumpkin spice family: allspice and cloves. In the first two parts of our three-part series, we investigated the health benefits of cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Though allspice and cloves may be lesser known and used in the kitchen than their spice siblings, they are certainly no lesser in their health benefits. Origins of Allspice and Cloves Though it would seem that allspice would encapsulate all spices — given the name — it actually isn’t a blend of spices. Native to Jamaica, Central America, and the West Indies, allspice comes ..read more

Hearty Beef Stew

This might be one of my all-time favorite dishes to make during the chilly fall and winter months. Whenever I make this hearty beef stew, it reminds me of home, growing up, and the feelings associated when I eat it. One of my favorite childhood memories is going camping with my family and sitting around a campfire and watching a can of stew slowly heat up over the flames. The slowness of the bubbles developing was so intriguing to me. I loved the simplicity of those memories and the pure joy I felt once we finally got to take a bite. I think in general, everything just tastes better in the gre ..read more

The air has started to crisp like the apples that are now finally in season. Sweaters are coming out of storage and leaf peeping is the new fashionable weekend entertainment. And then there’s pumpkin spice. We don’t have to go far to encounter this sweet blend in our grocery store shelves, household cleaning products, and its influence even in the most unexpected places (pumpkin spice engagement ring, anyone?). Pumpkin pie spice typically contains cloves, allspice, ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Not only do they cause a warming effect in chillier temperatures, but they also provide many health ..read more
