Embrace Yourself for a Better Today

The dawning of the new year gives rise to one of the most difficult-to-obtain and more-difficult-to-sustain annual declarations – the New Year’s Resolution. For many of us, resolutions are formulated from one of two perspectives: gaining or losing. We want to gain more in our lives – freedom, time, wealth and love. Or we want to lose more – weight, insecurities, inhibitions, or the 10 years worth of junk that we have stored in the garage. While each of these is admirable more...

Loving Vegetables- You Can Do It

Adding more vegetables to your plate to make it look more like MyPlate can seem like a feat fit for Popeye, especially if you prefer a trip to the dentist to a side of mixed vegetables.  The good news is that the more you eat something (yes, even vegetables), the more you develop a taste for it.  That means the more you eat healthy veggies like broccoli, zucchini and bell peppers, the more likely you are to really enjoy them.  Here are a few tips to add more vegetables to your more...

Nutritious choices to boost your brain health and performance

Feel like you have a few mental cobwebs?  You may not be getting the nutrition you need to keep your mental edge.  An excess of simple carbohydrates (e.g., sugar and white flour) and not enough of the good stuff, like cold water fish, eggs, poultry, a wide variety of richly colored fruits and vegetables, as well as the foods below, could be to blame. 

Nutrition to replenish and rebuild for your next workout

Whether you’re walking, swimming, playing sports or lifting weights, replenishing and rebuilding with a post workout meal is essential.  The ideal meal is eaten within an hour of exercise and is a combination of protein to rebuild and grow muscle and carbohydrates to refuel your energy stores.  This means lean proteins, such as fish, poultry, lean beef and legumes, along with complex and nutrient-rich carbohydrates, such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables.
