You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream! There’s definitely room in every healthy diet for a modest scoop of fully-loaded ice cream on occasion, but if you want to indulge in a healthier and lighter way while still enjoying a tasty frozen treat, we’ve got a recipe for you!

If you’ve never heard of a granita, it’s an Italian dessert that lives somewhere between sorbet and shaved ice. It’s wonderfully easy to make at home because it requires no special equipment and no churning. And it’s wonderful for folks who are looking for a healthier treat because the recipe is low on added sugar and dairy, and packed with healthy nutrients thanks to fresh, ripe peaches.

3 Ingredient Peach Granita

How to Read a Nutrition Label

Nevertheless, being aware of what you’re putting in your body (and how much) is important. So buckle up! We’re going for a ride to Labeltown (it’s like Funkytown, only more educational).

Break it down

    1. Serving size – the first thing you want to look at is the serving size, and how many servings are in the container. I used to think that the serving size for Oreos was “one package.” Turns out it’s two cookies. Clearly you can see my discrepancy.
    2. Caloric Content – trying to watch your weight? Watch your calories! Essentially, this part of the label tells you how much energy you’re taking in. It also tells you how much of that energy is coming from fat.
    3. The Nutrients – this part of the label clues you in on macro-nutrients (fat and protein), vitamins, minerals, and fiber. The left side of the column lists the nutrient (e.g. Iron, total fat, fiber), and the right side of the columns lists the percentage of the recommended daily value (%DV) for that nutrient.

Too Much

Generally speaking, most Americans consume too much of the following nutrients:

    • Total fat
    • Saturated fat
    • Cholesterol
    • Sodium
    • Protein

Not Enough

We want to work on getting more of these:

    • Fiber
    • Mono and polyunsaturated fat
    • Iron
    • Vitamins A and C

One thing to keep in mind when talking about Daily Value percentages is these percentages are based on a 2,000 calorie diet. So, if you’re daily calorie budget is 1,500, the percentages will be higher for you.

So there you have it! The nutrition label, decoded. Now, if anyone can tell me why un-popped popcorn is listed on a nutrition label…that would solve one of life’s mysteries for me.

What nutrient boggles your mind?

There are a lot of wonderful things about summer that make it easier to stick to a healthy lifestyle: The nicer weather makes heading outside for a walk, bike ride or swim more tempting; fresh veggies are abundant and affordable at roadside stands and farmers’ markets; and dessert is easier (and healthier) than ever thanks to the availability of ripe, fresh, sweet fruit!

Of course, there’s room in our diets for the occasional piece of pie or fudgy brownie, but for a healthy everyday treat, you can’t beat fresh fruit. And summer is the time to really get your fill! We absolutely love fresh summer melons because they’re not only super tasty and naturally sweet, but they are packed with water and tons of nutrients (not to mention, bright and beautiful to the eye!).

Watermelon slices are great for a quick and easy weeknight dessert for your family, but here’s a way to elevate your fruit and its appearance for something a little more special. This super simple, three-ingredient summer melon salad still comes together in a flash. And you’ll be amazed at how melons taste even fresher and tastier with a little bit of lemon zest. It’s the perfect way to celebrate summer!
