New Key Takeaways in Blogs
If you’re a longtime reader of the blog, you may have noticed that they all now end with a “key takeaways” section. A summary has been a common request that I’m excited I’m now able to offer. Sign up here to have the blog delivered straight to your inbox.
Recipe: Gemelli with Zucchini Meatballs
This recipe comes from The How Not to Diet Cookbook. Don’t let the length intimidate you. It’s as simple to make as it is delicious. I like to make the meatballs and sauce ahead of time so their flavors develop even more. When I’m not in the mood for chimichurri sauce, I substitute my favorite salt-free marinara. Get the free recipe here, and watch how it’s made on our Instagram.
Key Takeaways: Alzheimer’s Disease
September 21 was World Alzheimer’s Day. For me, it’s personal. My maternal grandmother died of the disease. I witnessed her decline and Alzheimer’s impact on her when I was in medical school, but my newfound knowledge was useless by then. A disease without a cure or an effective treatment, Alzheimer’s leaves millions of families devastated each year. The good news is that it may be preventable. Read more, and check out all of my videos on the subject on the topic page.

Volunteer Spotlight: Tamara Amor
“I started volunteering at NutritionFacts.org as a translator almost two years ago. I have been following a WFPB diet for four years now, but I have always been fond of nutrition and research. I am constantly looking for the best ways to nourish our body and be environmentally friendly at the same time, so I thought that being part of this beautiful team was a great opportunity to keep doing it.
I’m a really savoury person, so I would say that my favourite WFPB recipe is any BIG salad with legumes, roasted veggies, and quinoa or rice. I could eat that every day, especially if it has a tahini dressing or hummus in it!”
