Nutrition, Trader Joe’s must haves and Kayco at 30 with Cindy’s Corners

Recipes and Restaurants is way more than a kosher meal. It’s about a lifestyle, a choice and about incorporating our dietary laws into international menus for all. One important connection is a healthy option. As a successful businesswoman, family member in charge of meals and member of a community lucky enough to be included in everyone’s simchas, I, like most of you, face the challenges of weight loss, exercise and coordinating all into my daily schedule.

Meet Lisa Young

Lisa R. Young, Ph.D., R.D.N., C.D.N., is an internationally recognized nutritionist and portion size expert. She is an author, international lecturer, media consultant, private practice registered dietitian nutritionist, and adjunct professor of nutrition at New York University. She is the author of The Portion Teller Plan and is regularly called upon by major media outlets as an expert voice on nutrition and health. She lives in New York City.

Young is going to be joining me and sharing all kinds of great tips. You can follow my journey on Instagram on both @cindyscorners and @drlisayoung for live updates in between her regular tips in this column.

In the meantime, you can pre-order her new book coming out in January, 2019.

Finally Full, Finally Slim shows you how to permanently lose weight by right-sizing your portions without eliminating entire food groups or staring at an empty plate. Within these pages, Dr. Young outlines thirty days’ worth of simple changes to help you shed pounds and provides a portion plan that ensures you will feel satisfied. She expertly describes the relevance of diet to health and steers you toward whole foods and away from clever marketing claims that may be secretly sabotaging your weight-loss efforts. You’ll learn useful strategies for how to eat out, enjoy special occasions, and indulge in a favorite treat without tipping the scale. It includes the latest research, accommodates current lifestyles, and can be used alone or in combination with other diets.

Real weight loss is about more than food, Dr. Young addresses the whole person—your mind-set, environment, habits, and life—through research-based advice. You’ll learn how relationships, gratitude, self-compassion, and sleep patterns, for instance, can make a difference.

Portion control outlives all fad diets because it isn’t a diet. It’s a lifestyle.

Celebrate Kayco at 30

Celebrating 30 years is NJ based KAYCO, which exhibited at the very first trade show with its iconic Kedem grape juice and has evolved into one of the leading manufacturers, importers and exporters of kosher foods. Its leading brands include Haddar, Glicks, and Gefen, and more recently Tuscanini, Heaven & Earth and Paesana, among many others.

Over the years KAYCO has captured numerous awards in the prestigious Kosherfest New Products competition and has introduced new products and brands that have become household names in kosher food pantries.

Fueled by its commitment to innovative product development, KAYCO continued to satisfy consumers’ growing demand for kosher products. It was clear from the get-go that the market for kosher products was, and continues to be, insatiable.

I will be bringing you some giveaways when Kayco celebrates it’s anniversary at Kosherfest. Stay tuned. Many of my non-kosher, even not Jewish followers purchase Kayco brands for their tastes, gluten free and organic options.
