It seems like everyone is talking about what they can and can’t eat these days: supermarket aisles are lined with products claiming to be gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, soy-free, and everything in between. Suffice to say, food allergies, food sensitivities, and food intolerance are a hot topic in nutrition and health right now. There have been new diet trends and entire patterns of eating designed around the idea that people may be “sensitive” to certain foods, and that this sensitivity can cause negative reactions like inflammation and fatigue. From dietitians and physicians to news anchors and journalists, there are a lot of people talking about the subject; but is there solid science to back it up?
It's hard to believe another year has come and gone. It feels like just yesterday everyone was lying on the couch, hands on bellies, wondering why they ate so much. We have a sneaking suspicion it may happen again, in a week's time.

In honor of a holiday in which we're grateful for a whole lot – including health – here's a full Thanksgiving feast for you and your family: From a tasty little appetizer to the main event.Read more
