San Diego, California, August 2016— Hold the top sirloin, the fried chicken and the BBQ. An analysis by one of the world’s largest providers of shelf-stable seafood has suggested that residents of a number of non-coastal cities known for their traditional meat-eating ways may actually prefer salmon.

The internal analysis, conducted by Chicken of the Sea in honor of the second annual National Salmon Day on October 8, has named 10 markets as the “Top Salmon Cities” in the United States. Local residents in these markets eat more fresh and shelf-stable salmon per person than their counterparts in other U.S. cities. As a result, they also have the potential to eat more salmon or are more likely to try new salmon products, prepare salmon recipes or serve this super seafood.

Everywhere USA, May 2016—Here’s a good way to pick up on some “Zzzzzzzzz’s”.

A recent study from Nutrition Journal sought to determine if isoflavones from food would have a position impact on sleep duration and quality.

The researchers found, after analyzing the diets and sleep patterns of more than 1,000 Japanese adults, that higher isoflavone intake (between 22mg and 166mg in a 2,000 calorie day) was positively associated with optimal sleep duration and quality in the Japanese population tested.

Stamford, Connecticut, July 2016—Westin Hotels & Resorts, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Inc., recently declared the ‘death’ of Happy Hour as it was once known.

Today’s time-deprived travelers are combining business and fitness, in an effort to keep their well-being routine while on the road; and increasingly, they have chosen to catch-up with colleagues on running trails, rather than over cocktails. Earlier this summer, the chain helped kick off National Running Day, with participating Westin hotels nationwide hosting 5K runs during Happy Hour (4-7pm local time), bringing together guests, associates and local businesses to network while working out.

Everywhere USA, May 2016—While weekend breakfasts are often bigger affairs (and sometimes involve alcohol)—weekdays demand a more utilitarian fare. Most of us are looking for a breakfast that’s quick, transportable and satisfying enough to keep your belly full and mind sharp until lunchtime.

One option, the suggestion of Dr. Walter Willett, chair of nutrition at Harvard School of Public Health, is a combination of whole grains, nuts and fruit, plus a bit of yogurt. He adds that berries in particular are an ideal fruit for breakfast (or anytime). Packed with fiber and healthy polyphenols, there’s a lot of research to suggest blueberries, blackberries and their tart cousins are protective against cardiovascular disease and some forms of cancer—even the non-gut types like breast cancer.
