I love this visual chart from The Farmacy on how to tell if your avocado is ripe or not because I never know.
Via The Farmacy, this is a great list of anti-inflammatory and alkaline foods to eat more of as you kick off a year of healthier eating. Here at Noshtopia, our mission is to help you find more ways to eat foods like this in ways that are fun, tasty, and social!
Here's some beautiful red leafy greens and chard we found at the SF Ferry Building farmer's market last weekend.

Yes, we get to venture into the stomach and actually see what happens to food in there. From a scientific standpoint, the videos are fascinating. From a personal standpoint, seeing what happens to the processed foods in the stomach was rather frightening.
