Another Family Day – A Day to Eat Dinner with Your ChildrenTMis coming up to honor, remember, and celebrate the impact having meals together will have on your children. Studies show over and over that the simple tradition of eating a meal together reduces the likelihood your child will engage in risky behavior like drug and alcohol abuse.
We are taking the pledge to be a Family Day STAR! A Family Day star:
Our great-grandmothers didn’t need nutrition lessons—then again, they weren’t forced to wade through aisle after aisle of packaged foods touting outlandish health claims and confusing marketing jargon. Over the last few decades, we’ve forgotten what “real food” is—and we’re left desperately seeking foods that will truly nourish our bodies. We’re disillusioned with the “conventional wisdom” for good reason—it’s gotten us nowhere.
Most Americans Don’t Realize They Are Slowly Packing on Pounds
Aug. 2, 2012 — The next time one of your friends asks if he or she looks like they put on some weight, you may want to consider being honest with them — even if the answer is yes.
If so, you will be doing your part to help break through our collective denial about our tendency to gain weight. A new study suggests that most of us are clueless about whether we are gaining or losing weight. The findings appear in Preventive Medicine.
Does the support of a Health Coach increase the likelihood that people will reach their health goals? All signs point to yes.

Do you think brussels sprouts suck? Think again. If you hate brussels sprouts, then give this recipe a try –you might be surprised to find that they’re AWESOME!

Add sprouts to hot oil before the oil smokes and burns, then stir frequently while still allowing edges to darken. Sear 4-5 minutes –reduce heat if necessary during this process, but not too much.
