Cappello's and The Spunky Coconut

We got the opportunity to catch up with Kelly Brozyna, from The Spunky Coconut. Read the interview below.  What initiated your interest in food and nutrition?Before we had kids, I didn't know how to cook anything that wasn't from a box. It all began in 2004.

Your cheese addiction may indeed be real. And, my fellow cheddar fiend, you are not alone.A recent University of Michigan study published in the U.S. National Library of Medicine looked at why certain foods are more addictive than others. Not surprisingly, pizza topped the list, and the ingredient in the wondrous pie that calls to us most strongly (often late in the night; sometimes even at the gym) is the cheese on top.Most Americans eat 35 pounds of cheese a year.

Appearing in the New England Journal of Medicine in January 1985, “Paleolithic Nutrition: A Consideration of Its Nature and Current Implications” argued that the human body is “genetically programmed” to run not on a modern diet but on the foods consumed by our Stone Age ancestors.“The human genetic constitution has changed relatively little since the appearance of truly modern human beings, Homo sapiens sapiens, about 40,000 years ago,” S.
