Photo: "Healthy Food" by Spin Diva



I suddenly came to the realization that eating organic, market-fresh, good for me fruits and vegetables was going to be nearly impossible here in GiTMO and I am disappointed because this is, after all, a tropical island where things are supposed to grow abundantly year round.

2010:The Year of the Awakened Parent

If asked if you are you an “awakened” parent you would probably pause to consider what that actually means. What constitutes being an awakened parent? Many equate the term “awakened” with “eyes wide-opened” or being “aware”. In terms of parenting, to be awakened means to be conscious of what your role as a parent consists of…examining your role, determining if it is working to produce the results you intend, and finally, making necessary changes to achieve those goals.

Your Children Only Get One Childhood

I am the first one to say parenting is serious business. After all, I’m not only a mother and a grandmother, my work as an author is based on parenting as well. And like most parents, I focus on how and what my children learn, especially during their formative years. The formative years are the most important years in terms of the characteristics and traits they obtain and carry into their adult lives.



Parents place an enormous amount of energy on their children’s academic education,… Continue

Keeping Friends – Save your Health

Health, how do we appreciate it without losing it first? This is one of the questions that I think about quite a lot.



1. Everyday when you wake up and nothing hurts, say and know, it’s going to be a GREAT day!

2. If something does hurt, then decide what you are going to focus on instead to get your mind off of the parts that hurt.

3. Focus on what you want to accomplish that day, and then work hard to make it happen! It is such a good feeling when the day winds down to take… Continue

Teaching swimming = healthy kids + safe kids

A study released this week* proved that participation in formal swimming lessons cuts the risk of drowning for children ages 1-4 by 88%. Remember the first time you gave your new baby a bath? That rather concerned look on their face when you lowered them carefully into the water and then that flicker of recognition, ‘oh yes, water, I floated in my warm and comforting cocoon for the previous 9 months before you ejected me in a rather forceful manner’. I remember that my two quickly came to love… Continue

Adobo pork chops are a big favorite at my house. They are spicy and have a wonderful flavor.

Makes: 6 servings



Ingredients



* 6 boneless pork top loin chops, cut 3/4 inch thick ( 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 pounds total)

* 2 tablespoons packed brown… Continue

Why is This News?

I just read an article on WebMD about the benefits of a diet high in fruits, nuts, and vegetables and low in fatty, processed foods (Not All Diets Pass the Heart-Healthy Test) and wondered "Why is this news?" Don't we all know this stuff by now?
