Our farmers produce more food than we need to feed America. Unfortunately, the generous supply of vegetables and fruits in this country is often taken for granted by many who have easy access to it. In fact, a National Resources Defense Council report finds that roughly 40 percent of all edible food produced in America is not eaten. Based on food and beverages thrown out, up to $2,275 is wasted each year by a typical family of four in this country.

Fresh foods make up most of the discarded food. The average American wastes about 20 percent of the vegetables and 15 percent of the fruits inside and outside of the home, numbers that are higher than the previous generation. Properly storing fruits and vegetables is important in getting the most out of your produce. Keeping heart-healthy produce fresh prevents waste and will help save money. Learn how to stretch your budget with this infographic.

Considering the amount of time we spend in the office, at home or in some coffee shop working feverishly over a computer for work, it is important that we do it as healthily as possible. The right temperature, proper lighting, calming colors and a little greenery will go a long way to keeping you healthy at work apparently.

A little can go a long way, and there’s perhaps no place where this is more true than in the office. Seemingly small adjustments to things such as the thermostat, lighting, and furniture can make a world of difference in creating a healthy and productive workplace that helps to retain employees. In fact, 1 in 3 workers say they accepted or left a job due to the condition of the building and/or amenities offered.

Click below for an enlarged image of the infographic and get some easy tips on keeping employees (and yourself) happy and healthy — without spending a lot of money!

We’re more concerned than ever with maximizing our workout efforts and getting the fastest results. Effective workouts demand complete nutrition, and these simple guidelines will help make the right choices to refuel the body.

Recovery should be thought of as a window of opportunity. Approximately 30 minutes after cardio, the body is optimized to replenish its energy stores— muscle and liver glycogen. For strength training, the window is extended up to two hours post-workout. Muscle protein synthesis occurs, setting off muscle tissue recovery and repair, replacing fluids, and helping the body adapt to the stresses of the workout.

Eating around your training is vital to your progress. Use this infographic to help get the nutrients you need for the best results in the gym!
