The Cost of Permanent Press

Nobody would argue that people are busier than ever these days.  Between work, spouse, children, home and other commitments, there is more and more competition for our time.  And those companies that manufacture goods understand this and cater to the demands of convenience and ease.  But at what cost?

After…

It's Not Rocket Science

Last week, I did a post about the child obesity epidemic in the United States.  In that post, the first point I wanted to make is that food is fuel.  When you realize that very fact, it becomes easier to make better choices.   It’s all about how you view yourself.

If you could buy yourself a brand new car and money was not an option, what kind of car would it be?  Visualize that car.  Imagine yourself in the driver’s seat.  Take in that “new car” smell – actually don’t…

Children - The New Faces of Obesity

It’s no secret that obesity is a problem in the United States.  And in spite of the fact that a hunger problem exists as well, our population as a whole eats more and moves less than the citizens of other countries.  Sadly, it’s no longer just affecting adults, but children as well.  Even though medicine has made huge strides and people, on average, are living longer, it has been said that today’s generation of children and teenagers may not live as long as their parents will.  So,…

Nifty Niacin - It's Not Just a Word on Your Cereal Box!

If you would have asked me a few years ago what niacin was, I would have likely said it was one of those funny sounding vitamins that I used to read on the side of the cereal box in the morning.  And it is.  But it was only recently that I realized just how important this little gem of a vitamin really…

SEE What These Foods Can Do For You!

When I was growing up, most people I knew must have had pretty good vision.  I say that because contact lenses weren’t the norm like they are today.  If a person couldn’t see well, that person wore glasses.  And most of the people I knew didn’t.

Sure, my grandparents wore glasses, as did the lady at the front desk of our library, and probably a couple of…

Red is Not Just for Valentine’s. What Every Woman MUST Know!!

Here in the Chicagoland area, people are wearing RED today as part of the American Heart Association’s “Go Red for Women” campaign.  Many people still do not realize that Heart Disease is the #1 killer of women over the age of 20, according to the AHA.  The upside to this?  It’s largely…

Orange You Glad They Like It?

I absolutely LOVE my local Whole Foods Store (if you can call an hour’s drive one way local).  When you walk in the door, you are met with a HUGE produce section that looks alive.  It’s almost like a giant piece of artwork.  So many different colors, different textures, and different smells are just waiting for me…

Green Moms and Germs

During my many years of parenting, I have discovered there are many things I would prefer not to touch.  Some of these things are pretty obvious – various bodily fluids, “icky” things like frogs (maybe that’s just me) and anything that could potentially bite me.

During flu season (I recently learned there is no such thing as cold season), there are some “not so obvious” things that I would prefer not to touch as well.  These are those every-day items that we routinely touch without…

What Have These Brave Kids Got to Lose?

I am a huge fan of The Biggest Loser TV show.  To me, it’s not just about a group of people losing a large amount of weight and competing for a prize.  It’s about so much more than that.

I am overjoyed that the group behind this show has finally decided to take on the matter of child obesity.  It’s a sensitive subject and, so far, they have handled it beautifully.

Our children watch our every move.  We are responsible for the food we bring into the home, how many times we allow…
