  • Is Buying Organic Worth It?

    Is Buying Organic Worth It?

    by Libby Aneskewich Many grocery stores today have organic sections and more and more people are choosing to purchase organic foods for themselves and their children. Buying organic foods can be expensive as they may cost up to 60% more than regular produce items. There are several different organic food labels to look for like “100% organic” or “certified organic.” Certified organic food items must meet a long list of requirements at a greater cost to the farmer, therefore justifying their higher market price. If you are someone who prefers organic foods, there may be quite a few reasons why - you may be buying organic foods including greater nutrient ....

  • Stress Free Meal Prepping

    Stress Free Meal Prepping

    by Hannah Martin Years ago I made a Pinterest account and saved many meal prepping ideas in hopes of conquering the habit. However, for some reason it seemed like a daunting task. Rather than planning and prepping, my husband and I would buy groceries to have on hand for healthy meals, but it usually wasn’t until my drive home from work that I thought about dinner. At that point neither of us had pulled out any chicken, turkey, or fish from the freezer to thaw. This frequently led to stressful evenings, having to quickly thaw a protein source and rushing about the kitchen to throw something together. With that in mind, I decided a goal of mine for the new year was to ....

  • Scared of the Scale?

    Scared of the Scale?

    by Michelle Sadowitz Maybe you can relate…you see the scale in the corner of your bathroom floor and you have this internal battle going on “Should I step on the scale or nahhhh?” Maybe you walk over to the scale and hover one foot over, then decide that you’ll push it off till next month. The scale can be an intimidating thing. I don’t think many people can say that they enjoy facing the scale. I know I don’t! Personally, I used to struggle with my weight and I would step on the scale multiple times a day to make sure I hadn’t gained weight. After every meal I would check and if I increased even just a pound, my day was ruined and I would make ....

  • Growing Your Summer Herb Garden

    Growing Your Summer Herb Garden

    by Cory Phillips It's that time of the year again. Plants are in full bloom and if you haven't noticed almost every grocery/home improvement store are selling flowers and edible plants, also known as herbs. Pick yourself up a few different types (my go-to every year are: rosemary, basil, thyme, oregano, mint, and of course jalapeño peppers) and plant them in your garden or in a few pots on your porch. Besides watering them when it's been dry outside, there really isn't much else you need to do to take care of them. I find that having an herb garden every year helps me be more creative with making meal - rosemary/thyme on chicken, basil to make my own pesto, ....

  • The Many Benefits of Foam Rolling

    The Many Benefits of Foam Rolling

    by Faith Judson Foam rolling may be a newer concept, but it should be something that is here to stay. Many people have seen a foam roller or have at least heard of one before, but do not understand its purpose or benefits. It may seem like just a piece of foam, but for those that understand what it is and what it does know that it is much more. Most people love a good massage. They know it feels great, but there is more going on. Soft tissue mobilization, a more technical term for what a massage is, creates a chemical response in the muscle tissue. It changes the quality of the muscle fibers, leading to improved treatment and injury prevention. The problem is that regular ....

  • Creating Healthy Habits as a Family

    Creating Healthy Habits as a Family

    b y Bob Romanaskas Summer can be busy with vacations, camps, holidays and get-togethers, but the lack of school schedule and laid-back summer days make for a perfect time to try new things and create healthy habits. When we think of health, we often think of nutrition and exercise; however, sleep, emotional health, and socializing are equally important factors to consider, especially for kids. Summer is the perfect time to offer new healthy foods to your family thanks to all the fresh produce in season. Kids are more likely to try new foods if they are involved in the planning and cooking process. Grocery shopping or cooking with kids can be a way to talk about nutritious foods ....

  • The Most Important Person to Know

    The Most Important Person to Know

    by Sarah Long When was the last time you studied yourself? I'm not talking about your likes, dislikes, and interests, but who you actually are. What makes you tick? How are you wired to react to situations and the people around you? Knowing yourself is a huge part of self care. If you don't know yourself, how will you know how to take care of yourself mentally, emotionally, and physically? We often spend so much time getting to know other people that we lose sight of the fact that we are the most important person we'll know on a deep level. Sometimes it's helpful to take personality tests to help with this. Not the ones that tell you what dessert you are, or what decade you ....

  • Why We Won't Bash Your Diet

    Why We Won't Bash Your Diet

    by Libby Aneskewich There is no one diet that is perfect for everyone. Some people may see success with the Whole 30 diet, the keto diet, or just simply by adding in more fruits and vegetables. That doesn’t mean that one is better than the other; it just means that some diets will work with individual lifestyles better than others. One of the benefits of sticking to a regimented eating plan for 30 days or more is the concept of eliminating food groups. When you eliminate one or more more food group you may find that your body functions more optimally with or without it. For example, if you are following a diet that eliminates dairy products and you find ....

  • Add in Those Veggies!

    Add in Those Veggies!

    by Cory Phillips Let's all take a second to be honest with ourselves -we say we eat our daily amount of veggies, but do we really? Most of us "health conscious" people still aren't getting enough vegetables into our diet. So today here's 10 ways to get more veggies into your meals. 1. Pick a new vegetable at the grocery store each week to try out and even base a meal around. You'll be surprised at how many veggies you've never given a chance. 2. Pack pre-cut veggies into snack-size bags for perfectly-portioned munchies. Keep them eye level in the fridge for easy access. 3. Add peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, or onions to your eggs for a delicious omelet, or pile ....

    Too Tired To...

    by Michelle Sadowitz “I’m too tired to….”
    You’ve all heard someone say that phrase before, and YOU
    have most definitely said those words before. It is such a common thing that people deal with, yet we don’t seem to be properly addressing the issue. Feeling tired has probably
    kept you from doing activities
    that maybe you wanted to but didn’t have the energy, maybe you didn’t perform as well or focus well in a class because you were just so tired or maybe your lack of energy caused you to skip exercising. There are a lot of reasons you may feel lack of energy and so tired all the time. But you don’t have to stay stuck in that rut, ....
