(CARLSBAD, CA) – Valentine’s Day…It’s the season for heart-shaped candies, chocolate truffles, and giant-sized cookies. Love is in the air, but calories are in the edible gift exchanges. And while giving a box of chocolate-covered cherries may seem like an innocent, kind-hearted gesture, the toll that excess sugar takes on our health is reason to re-think your gifts from Cupid this year.
(CARLSBAD, CA) – Good news! Vitamin C may not only be good for staving off a cold, it may actually reduce your potential risk for having a stroke.
(CARLSBAD, CA) – It’s a new year. Time for resolutions. Time for making changes. And if you’re like most Americans, your goals may include dropping a few pounds. So, you stock your fridge with fresh fruits and veggies, and you tell your family of your plans to steer clear of the breadbasket. But, is that enough?
(CARLSBAD, CA) – Energy bars, power drinks, gel packs, and powder mixes. It’s a mass market for pre-workout snacks and beverages these days. But, do you really need all these? Not if you’re choosing the right foods.
(CARLSBAD, CA) – Whew! What a day! Your daughter forgot her clarinet, but you rushed it down to school. Your husband needs a root canal, and you scheduled it with the dentist. Your dog was due for an annual check-up, so you squeezed in a visit to the vet. Your boss requested lunch for 15 executives at the last minute, and you brought the caterers to the rescue. At the end of the day, you managed to make dinner, run a load of laundry, check the kids’ homework, and return three phone calls. You did it! Everyone’s needs were met. Or were they? Did you get a chance to take care of yourself today?
