I was recently invited to attend Pay it Forward Day
on Wednesday, December, 1, 2010 from a friend on Facebook. I thought it was a brilliant idea and one that many of us do on a routine basis. There is an actual world-wide Pay it Forward Day that will be held on April 28, 2011 as well. I personally think there should be more days to consider paying it forward than 1 or 2 days a year.
Here are a few details that are… Continue

It's Apple Season!
There's nothing like a crisp, tart, delicious apple! Try some organic ones this season. I think you'll really taste the difference and you don't even have to peel them!
Did you know some of the greatest benefits of fruit lie just beneath the skin?

William Sokolin once asked that same question in his quote: “What is the definition of good wine? It should start and end with a smile." I wonder if William was with us at our recent Meet and Mingle event at Ric’s Wine Market in Lakeland. From the moment you entered the event, Ric was there to greet you with a smile, and after enjoying a sip of wine, you definitely had a smile on your face.
Our Meet and Mingle event held on Tuesday,… Continue

I used to LOVE trick or treating as a kid.
My two brothers and I had an ongoing bet who could bring home the heaviest pillowcase full of decadent treats! I honestly can't remember who won, but I do remember sifting through the loot and separating the "good stuff" (aka chocolate) from the rest. There must have been 8-10 pounds of candy spread out over our kitchen table!
Things are a bit different now. It is SO not worth it to me… Continue

As unique as we all believe we are, I find that there are more similarities than there are differences.
It matters not your gender, race or body composition. We all have a desire to look and feel as amazing as we are capable.
So why is it that 92% of us surveyed are not happy with our bodies and feel overwhelmingly tired and stressed out?
I see a pattern.
Despite showing up at the gym for… Continue

Research shows that the first 10 years of a child's life are the most important in determining what diseases they will encounter in their mid-life years.
Have you begun to make the connections between your own current ailments (Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Bowel Disease, Hypertension, Arrhythmias, Cancers) and your past and current food choices?
Are you willing to contribute to the diseases your own children will have to… Continue

School lunches have been a hot topic this season, much in thanks to Jamie Oliver's TV hit, Food Revolution!
One of the main catalysts for Jamie's "mission trip" (Jamie is from the UK) to the United States to help our dying Standard American Diet eating populace was the USDA study that proved that children eating lunches from our National Lunch Program are more likely to become overweight!
Unfortunately even Jamie's solution of… Continue

One of the most difficult obstacles all of us face in eating healthy is planning ahead.
It's simple. If the healthy foods aren't in the pantry or fridge, we won't eat them.

I know how frustrating the weight loss roller coaster can be! The mental stress of constantly dealing with how we feel about ourselves wreaks havoc on all areas of our lives.
Get together with any group of women, and the conversation will eventually turn to food or body image.
