Nutrient Content view at a glance

Infographics are all the rage these days and for the right reasons. I am big fan of infographics as they serve as a great medium to convey information instead of text. Recently I came across this great infographic on Nutrient Content based on USDA Nutrient Database

Healthy Habits Survey

We did a quick survey on some of the practices people follow as part of their healthy eating. We sent out the survey to approximately 200 people in my network and 120 people were generous to take their time out and provide their responses. Thanks to all of you. Here is a copy of the final report in case you were interested.

8 foods account for 90% of allergic reactions

Did you know that 8 foods account for 90% of the allergic reactions that people experience?

According to Food Allergen Labeling and consumer Protection Act  (FALCPA) the following 8 foods were identified as responsible for 90% of food allergies

  1. Milk
  2. Eggs
  3. Fish (e.g., bass, flounder, cod)
  4. Crustacean shellfish (e.g. crab, lobster, shrimp)
  5. Tree nuts (e.g., almonds, walnuts, pecans)
  6. Peanuts
  7. Wheat
  8. Soybeans

These foods, and any ingredient that contains protein derived from one or more of them is considered a major food allergen. With FDA mandating that food manufacturers and restaurants declare allergens on their nutritional labels, these are things you are start noticing.

What is tinyhabit?

We have been furiously working on the early versions of the product, evolving it based on what you told us. Now that we have reached a stage where we are actively demonstrating the product, talking to our target customers, we thought it is time to come out and start sharing some information about what we have been up to.

Health is one of the most critical things that we all care about. Yes, there is money, there are all those material things, but without good health all those things will be of very little value.

Most of us treat good health and wellness as a given. When confronted with some drastic consequences, we scurry around and resort to a reactive fix, be it, packaged eDiets or “miracle guaranteed” quick-fix. We believe all those are futile attempts and while getting some temporary results, will land you right where you started. We believe that good health is a lifestyle choice that should be ingrained into our day-to-day life and to achieve that we should make long term investment on ourselves.

At tinyhabit, our goal is provide a platform for families to equip themselves to set and achievable goals. We think instead of going back and rectifying things that are seemingly misaligned with your goals, it is easier to incorporate new habits that will help you achieve your goals. We think focusing not on the results, instead on the habits/process has a better chance of success. Results will follow.

We have been validating our product with families and individuals to ensure it has resonance. We will soon be making it available to the larger audience. If you are interested in being a early adopter, please sign up on the home page and we will be in touch.
