An Adorable Look at Fruits and Vegetables Doing Yoga

Meditation-Yoga-Foods

Marta Prior is an Illustration and Art teacher who lives in Barcelona. One of her specialities are illustrations done in ink and watercolor. Among those illustrations is this unique, and pretty darn cute, series focusing on every day produce practicing the art of yoga. Because nothing relaxes you like seeing adorable anthropomorphic foods practicing an ancient art.

While the series is nothing world-changing, scandalous, or bacon-related, it’s definitely neat to look at. Check out her rather impressive collection of watercolors below and decide for yourself. After all, even foods need to strengthen their core and better their breathing.

Green Juice Trend Now in Popsicle Form

pops

In the past few years people have become increasingly willing to shell out the dough to sip kale, beets, and lemon juice through a straw.

Now, taking it a step further, Innocent Ice Pops freezes “green juice” into popsicles made from just fruits and vegetables. Vegan, gluten-free, fat-free, and kosher, the popsicles come in three flavors: Tropicarrot, Kale Daddy, and Sweet Beets.

Note, another company, Green Wave Smoothies, has created a similar frozen treat, calling them “the first popsicles that incorporate nutrient-dense, dark-green leafy vegetables.” The pops come in flavors like Kalelicious and Green Coolada. Uh oh, guys, we sense a trend here.

So if you’re looking to have a healthy frozen treat as we approach the hottest days of summer, you might want to consider these green juice pops. Still, they’ll never be as satisfying as a sweet, crunchy choco taco.

BUSTED: Whole Foods Fined for Overcharging Californians

Whole-Foods-Fined-Pete

Ruh Roh, Whole Foods. The popular grocery chain was penalized a sum of close to $800,000 after a year-long investigation discovered that they were overcharging customers in the state of California. There’s about 74 Whole Foods total.

It was uncovered by State and local inspectors that purchased foods weighed less than how much they were advertised to cost for said weight. The weight of salad bar containers were also not subtracted after the final checkout, Fox News reports. According to prosecutors, this violated consumer protection laws under false advertising and unfair competition.

Whole Foods is set to pay $210,000 to the city attorneys of Los Angeles, Santa Monica and San Diego. The chain must also repay $100,000 to a weights and measurements enforcement fund. There will be both state and store pricing accuracy managers to prevent this from happening again as well as random quarterly audits in all 74 Whole Foods locations in California.

This Website Calculates the Calories in the Fruits & Vegetables You’re Juicing

Juicing-Website-Calories-Pete

 

The toughest thing about juicing, other than cleanup, is keeping track of how much fruit and veggies you’re throwing into the machine. Sure, it’s easy to go nuts with it, but in the end, it could do you more harm than good if you don’t keep tabs of what you’re juicing. Especially with the sugar content.

The website Simply Smarter Juicing is a pretty nifty tool that gives folks the nutritional information of various fruits and vegetables most commonly used when juicing. Some of the foods included (along with some health facts) are apples, carrots, strawberries, spinach and ginger. All one has to do is drag the individual ingredients over into a slot. The animated juicer starts shaking and boom, instant nutritional facts. The site also creates a customized recipe based on your ingredients scaling the portions to fit the juice. It also suggests other juice recipes based on your choices.

Now if only there was a site that counted the caloric content of breakfast pizzas.

These Animated Images of MRI-Scanned Fruits & Vegetables Are Hypnotizing

Sometimes, there can be nothing more magically terrifying than watching an MRI. The haunting images of an inside-look at your brain makes you question what’s going on in that head of yours. So if the human brain is interesting enough to view or hours, what other organic material could translate well through an MRI? Maybe my lunch.

The images below were taken by MRI technologist Andy Ellison. Using a Philips 3 Tesla MRI from the Boston University Medical School, Ellison took a close, intimate look at every day produce. The results, as you can see, are pretty damn breathtaking.

Here are the Foods that You Can Magically Regrow from Leftovers

how-to-plant-vegetables

It’s not unusual to find that the organic, pesticide-free produce tends to be a tad more expensive. Add that with your grass-fed beef and free-range chicken, and you might as well give up and reach for that box of chocolate. Because chocolate is a salad anyway and won’t cost you an entire paycheck.

Don’t fret. While you can’t grow organic beef in your kitchen (yet), you can grow a mini vegetable garden using scraps and save a few bucks next time you go shopping. All you need is water, soil and last night’s leftovers.
