It’s a Tajin® Occasion!

One of the hardest task mothers have is to convince their kids to eat vegetables as part of their school lunch or weekday dinner. I would like to introduce you a product that may help moms with this mission and that is available at grocery stores shelves nationwide: Tajin®.


Tajin® is a Mexican seasoning that goes great with fruits, vegetables and more. Based on a Mexican old age tradition of seasoning fruits and vegetables with mild chili peppers, lime and salt, Tajin® it’s a very versatile seasoning that consumers can use in different ways to enhance the flavor of fruits, vegetables, drinks or any food. Basically, it’s like Cinco de Mayo in a bottle.

Also, I’m sharing a recipe for Tajin® Corn Salad, which is a great for an afternoon snack or side dish.




Add Tajin® to your spice cabinet, family and friends will love it!

A Healthy Alliance! has the honor of sharing, Suzanne Steinbaum, DO, Director of Women’s Heart Health at the Heart and Vascular Institute at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York and a cofounder of the Global Nutrition and Health Alliance (GNHA) mission statements.

As a co-founder of the Global Nutrition and Health Alliance (GNHA), Suzanne Steinbaum,  educates people around the world about optimal nutrition being incredibly important. Steinbaum encourages people to get as much of their nutrients as possible from foods. But the reality is, it is more difficult than you think to consume enough through diet alone.

According to a study conducted by the GNHA, many adults may be overestimating how healthy their diets are and should consider supplementation. The survey of 3,000 American, British and German adults found that 72 percent reported having a “healthy” diet and more than half believed they consume all the key nutrients needed through food sources alone. However, the prevalence of chronic diseases in these countries suggests respondents may be overestimating how healthy their diets are. In terms of Omega-3 and Vitamin D, the survey also found that less than a third of those polled were actively taking a supplement.

A diet rich in important nutrients, like Omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin D, is key to having a healthy heart and well-functioning cells throughout your body. Supplements aren’t a replacement for a healthy diet, but they can be important to bridge the gaps in your diet.

Love Your Liver!

One of the hardest working organs in the human body is the liver, so it should go without saying that everyone has their liver’s best interests in mind. But in the case that you don’t, or you’re just looking for some more guidance, The Liver Healing Diet offers plenty.

Dr. Michelle Lai and Asha R. Kasaraneni team up to answer the questions: what does the liver do, what happens when it can’t do what it’s supposed to, and how can you help your liver do everything it needs to do? According to them, “the liver performs more than 500 vital functions”. Buckle up. It’s a long ride that’s worth taking.

The book provides a comprehensive overview of the liver and its many functions complete with helpful diagrams and labels for those who haven’t taken a biology class since high school. It also identifies the most common health issues that plague the liver and how those illnesses present as symptoms (your body’s way of sending red flags).


The second part of the book delves into creating a lifestyle that is beneficial to both the liver and overall health. Step by step, Dr. Lai and Kasaraneni discuss detoxification, diet, and exercise. They even answer some of life’s biggest mysteries, as they explain how to read food labels and just what all those vitamins and minerals really do for you.

The manual of healthy liver comes with a collection of recipes that promote a healthy lifestyle. No meal or food group is left untouched and full recipes for every time of day are included.
“In essence, your liver is a processing plant, storage facility, filtering station, and productive factory, all rolled into one,” write Lai and Kasaraneni. It’s high time we all start treating the liver like the powerhouse it truly is.
