Eating Real Food Cookbook Released by Basic Nutrition

Obesity has become one of the major health concerns over the last century, as it affects more and more people each year. Obesity is associated with an increased risk of numerous diseases, such as certain types of cancer, coronary artery disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, and cardiovascular disease, as well as a significant increase in early mortality.

Products that are loaded with additives are destructive and are causing an increase in weight and a decline in health. While modern health gurus often confuse us with complex diets and expensive ingredients, making it hard to navigate through the facts.

The secret to weight loss, disease prevention, and well-being is simple: the solution is to EAT REAL FOOD.

Out To Lunch Podcast with Stephanie Riegel

Out to Lunch finds Baton Rouge Business Report Editor Stephanie Riegel combining her hard news journalist skills and food background: conducting business over lunch. Baton Rouge has long had a storied history of politics being conducted over meals, now the Capital Region has an equivalent culinary home for business: Mansur’s. Each week Stephanie holds court over lunch at Mansur’s and invites members of the Baton Rouge business community to join her.

At our lunch with Stephanie we talked about how in today’s complex, high-tech, polarized and post-pandemic era, it does indeed, as someone famously once said, take a village to raise a child. You as a parent cannot do it alone. Raising balanced, productive little people requires not only concerned caregivers but a robust school system and a variety of other programs that address emotional, physical and psychological needs.

The Patty G Show with Basic Fitness

Basic on The Patty G Show

Guests for the Patty G Show: Jennifer Macha & Nely Ward. Two fitness fanatics that are not only about staying in shape, but working with kids and adults alike to get them in shape as well. From being forced to sit at home during quarantine, we got right to work realizing they just couldn’t stand the sitting still. Making the leap from working together at the same company, we pulled our resources together and began what is now known as, Basic. With a simple plan, we went into a new venture amidst a pandemic and came out with a winner of a business model. Whether you want personal training, or you are a school looking to get their team conditioned for the upcoming season, we are the two people who can make that happen.
