It's still a little on the early side for spring to officially start (especially when parts of the country are still covered in snow!) but sunny days make me crave lighter dishes and fresh vegetables from the farmer's market.
Almost two week ago, my husband and I started Project Eat It, Don't Move It. Instead of packing up and moving all of our pantry staples, we decided to use them before our move, so I've had to get really creative in the kitchen.
Cigar aficionados and pipe smokers often claim that their habit is safer than cigarette smoking because they don't inhale. Even if they think they're just harmlessly puffing away, they're still damaging their lungs, a new study shows
One of the best things about stretching is that you don't need any equipment to do it—same thing goes for strengthening your core. So the idea of buying a piece of equipment to help me do those very things seems unnecessary, kind of like buying a kleenex holder when the tissues already come in a perfectly serviceable box. But as a gear reviewer, I'm up for (almost) anything, so when a flexibility/core strengthening gadget called the TendoFlex came across my desk, I gave it a whirl.
If you're looking for help in your healthy eating or weigh loss endeavors, it's worth paying attention to an "expert's" credentials.

At home there's no one watching to see how much I eat.
Most people think overweight and obese people use "slow metabolism" as an excuse for not losing weight. And this was what I've always assumed, until I realized my metabolism is 33% slower.

How do you know if your child’s chubbiness is baby fat or obesity? You can’t always tell just by looking, and you can’t always count on pediatricians to broach the subject. But you can take matters into your own hands and adopt habits that will keep your child as healthy as possible
I confess: I'm a bit of a conservation nut. I'm the gal who fishes soda cans out of the garbage to put in the recycling bag, who turns the lights off in empty conference rooms as she passes, who brings her own take-out container to the company cafe. That's why I was so excited to hear about Brooks' new Green Silence running shoes.
