While you will find many dog foods that make you cringe at the smell, there are some that are actually made from people grade food… meaning you and your dog could both eat.

Lots of shops that carry pet food will permit your dog to try some of the costlier kinds so that he or she can indicate a preference.

Key Certifications for Culinary Careers

  • Posted on June 4, 2018 at 12:11 am

There are several key certifications for culinary careers. The first and most important is the Culinary Arts Certificate, which serves as a stepping stone into many careers in this field. As culinary professionals continue their educational path to reach their career goals they may also decide to complete a Chef’s Certificate, Master Baker Certificate or any number of other certifications to prove their areas of specialization. Since the Culinary Arts Certificate is one of the most important key certifications for culinary careers, this article will focus on the educational programs for the CAC.

A Culinary Arts Certification program can be completed in two years or less at a technical / vocational school, community college or specialized culinary institute. There are other certificates that may follow depending on whether you want to work in a restaurant, bakery, hotel, catering company or in the management side of things. You will learn about food preparation, nutrition and sanitary practices during your culinary certification. Your courses will include subjects such as Baking and Desserts, Baking for Restaurants, Cooking Poultry/Fish/Meat, Food Service Sanitation and Nutrition for a Healthy Lifestyle.

In order to complete a CAC or any other culinary certificate program, you will need to prove that you have mastered the skills involved in that program. Basic food prep skills will not suffice. Culinary certificate programs involve much more than simply learning how to cook and keep your work station sanitary, too. You will learn how to present dishes, use all the major food preparation methods of the world, take necessary safety precautions, prepare nutritiously balanced meals and properly use all the tools of a chef’s kitchen.

After earning a Culinary Arts Certificate you will have an excellent foundation for a rewarding career in the culinary industry ranging from cook to caterer to restaurant manager to food stylist to sommelier. You will also have the foundation to complete more advanced certifications and take your career to the next level. Without any sort of education or certification, however, you will have a more difficult time climbing the steps of the professional culinary ladder.

Why Natural Organic Foods Are Good For Your Health

  • Posted on June 3, 2018 at 5:39 pm

Whilst it might appear like a new trend, organic food has really been around for a lot longer than the foods that we’re accustomed to eating. This is food that is grown and nurtured in a natural manner, so as not to upset the growing development or the person who’s eating it. But with more and more labels claiming to be ‘natural’ as well as ‘organic,’ it can become confusing when you’re in a grocery store aisle. Then when you see that the prices are somewhat higher than ‘normal’ foods, you may doubt if it’s even worth a second look.

What defines natural food?

Natural foods are defined as foods that do not endure any chemical processing, either in the growing procedure or in the harvesting procedure. These are foods that do not contain pesticides or insecticides, fertilizers as well as other toxins.

If you observe organic foods that are pre-packaged, this means that each of the components is also processed using organic methods. Though, you need to look for packages that include the phrase ‘100%’ or ‘certified’ organic in order to know that all of the ingredients are organic. If a package just includes the now generic term of organic, it can signify that only a percentage of the ingredients are processed in this method.

Why decide on natural foods?

Many people are turned off by the elevated costs that organic foods appears to have. And with the lessened processing, these costs don’t seem justified. However, the reason behind the somewhat higher prices is that these are farms that cannot manufacture as much yield as those that make use of chemical substances. Lots of fertilizers will allow farms to cultivate many more stalks of corn, for example.

But when you take away this fertilizer to cultivate organic corn, you may only obtain half as much – and in doing so, the farmer needs to charge more. There are as well some restrictions as to how much money these smaller and sometimes family run farms get from government sources. Without the additional monetary help, these farms may not make any profits without increasing their overall prices.

In selecting natural foods, you are also supporting local farmers (in the majority of cases) that are growing healthier products. The food that you consume should not contain added toxins as well as chemicals. A number of scientific studies have shown that eating large quantities of these kinds of substances can lead to a multitude of problems – some cancers, diseases, as well as other health problems.

The toxins can build up within your body and start to damage healthy cells. And this is no wonder, considering nature never intended for us to eat chemical substances that have been added to our foods. In addition, a lot of people are sensitive to these kinds of chemical substances, so consuming organic food allows them to avoid any harmful reactions they may have otherwise.

Health and Fitness Tips to Eliminate Stress

  • Posted on June 3, 2018 at 3:48 am

Our society is one that is under a lot of stress and this stress is literally making people sick. Stress can run down your immune system, cause sleep problems such as insomnia or over-sleeping, cause gastrointestinal issues such as ulcers and much more. It is extremely important to add a health and fitness routine to your daily life in order to feel better and to reduce stress levels. Stress can be caused by a number of factors such as an illness, a death of someone you love, job expectations, financial difficulties, relationship problems and many other reasons. It is important to understand where the stress is coming from and to learn how to eliminate it from your life.

When developing a health and fitness plan, it is very important to include an adequate amount of exercise. Exercise is not only good for the body, but it is also a great natural aid in reducing stress and tension. Activities such as walking, biking, aerobics and swimming can be great examples of good exercise habits. The average person would greatly benefit from working out for at least thirty minutes, three-five times per week. Exercise alone can greatly reduce stress and anxiety and many doctors highly recommend some form of exercise for their patients who are experiencing an unhealthy level of stress.

Another factor to consider when creating a health and fitness plan is a healthy diet. It is imperative to avoid sugary foods, caffeine, salty foods and foods that contain empty calories such as candy bars. These foods should be replaced with healthy alternatives such as fruits and vegetables, foods that are rich in protein such as nuts and cheese, and yogurt. A proper diet can help to build up an immune system that may be weakened by high stress levels. When the immune system is weakened, there is an increased chance of getting an illness or disease. One should also cut out red meats and eat lean meats such as chicken or fish. These changes can greatly improve the way that a person feels.

It is possible to reduce stress by utilizing a health and fitness plan. It is important to speak to a physician about the stress that a person is feeling and to gain assistance in creating a treatment plan. Stress can interfere with your health and happiness and the sooner that it is under control, the better.

The Consequences of Food

  • Posted on June 1, 2018 at 10:35 am

Nourishment is key to good health. Unfortunately, many of us only think we are eating healthily. Consider milk, for instance. Humans are the only beings who drink milk after being weaned from our mother and even drink milk from another species. The pasteurization process destroys the vitamins and nutrients in the original product, so we then add artificial vitamins. We call this “fortified”.

There are a number of concerns with processed foods. In order to provide the consumer with a long shelf life, chemicals are added to the foods. Chemical additives are also added for color, consistency, taste and more. The problem is, the effects of most of these additives are yet unknown. Some of the synthetic chemicals used in processed foods are known to have carcinogenic properties. Processed meats such as hot dogs and bologna are particularly dangerous.
