 Dental health is so important. Failing to keep your teeth, gums and mouth healthy can ail the entire body. It is so much more than cosmetic or keeping pearly whites so, if you have a decent pair of chops, go to great lengths to maintain them. It is one of those things that you must […]

One of my best friends always says our single days were just like “Sex & the City,” except we didn’t take home guys from every party; we didn’t have the fabulous wardrobe; and we didn’t discuss every personal issue over wine all the time. In other words, real like isn’t a television sitcom, no matter […]

Cooking for your family can be fun. Children between the ages of 5 to 15 are really wonderful cooking companions and having them learn the most important tools to healthy living is really a plus. Conversing while you add ingredients just might influence what they feed themselves for years to come. My sons were exposed […]

The fabulous healthy alternatives keep pouring in! The journey from Fat & 40 for me has continued to Healthy 48. The struggle has been long and hard. Like most mothers, we put every one else first. We eat last, take care of every one else’s needs and dietary interests first and consider ourselves once we […]

Welcome to a lighter and healthier snack that everyone in the family can enjoy. There are 5 flavors of Italy to taste: Marinara, Alfredo, Spicy Tomato Basil, Garlic Olive Oil and my favorite, Mediterranean Sea Salt. The thing that I adore the most is that they are made with all natural ingredients: Semolina flour and […]

We’re long-time fans of our local farmer’s markets. We spend some time every Saturday talking to growers about their produce and finding new recipes. Still, there are always ingredients I buy and never use. Sometimes it’s just a matter of figuring out how to use them in a dish the family will enjoy. This year, […]

It is a new year, and yes, I do consider myself a new me. If you have been following these ‘Lifestyle’ posts you’ll recall that I set a goal of losing 20 pounds with the RISE IOS app and Tory Johnson’s “The Shift” back in the late summer/fall. I satisfied my goal despite being inundated […]

 What happens after Week 4 of Shift With Tory? It gets easier. How so? I don’t remember what I was eating over a month ago! Thank goodness for senility! The good news is that I am down 14 pounds! The bad thing is that I don’t even feel it yet, which is actually a good […]

It is week 3 of “Shifting” with Tory Johnson! I have lost 11 pounds and have 14 more pounds to go. In ‘The Shift’ Tory speaks on “paralyzing fears” and “making time for what’s most important to you”. These concepts really spoke to me because I too have had paralyzing fears of acceptance and conformity […]

I am over-weight. I have always struggled with my weight. There have only been two times in my life when I was thin. High School and College. Somehow I have always maintained the same size in clothes, probably because the weight distributes to my behind! Along with a girlfriend of mine, I have attempted every […]

I always lived by the “age is just a number” mantra until I was scheduled for surgery recently. Suddenly my age was a hot topic. The doctor said, “Oh, you’re almost 50. You’ll need these additional tests.” A nurse noted that I was nearly 50 so my recovery would be longer than a younger woman. […]

Being that my forage into the world of massages began with a pre-natal massage while I was whale months’ pregnant with my now three year old twins, I wasn’t fully aware of all the awesomeness that they held. Mind you, the massage was wonderful, but I wasn’t able to fully relax on my stomach or […]
