How to Eat More Vegetables

“Eat your vegetables” is something you’ve probably heard all of your life.  Veggies are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and other phyto-nutrients that really improve your operating system.  If you struggle to get your three to five servings of veggies a day, we’re giving you tips on how to eat more vegetables.

How to Eat More VegetablesReplace Carbohydrates with Vegetables

Yes, you can convert recipes for your favorite carbs – including bread, pasta and potatoes – into veggie dishes instead.  Brilliant!  Here are some ideas:

  • Use a sheet of lettuce to make a sandwich wrap instead of bread or tortillas
  • Shred squash and zucchini into long, thin pieces and sauté them as a replacement for noodles
  • Puree cauliflower or a variety of squash to make a mashed potato substitute
  • Dip raw veggies in hummus, spinach or queso dips rather than crackers or pita
  • Make veggie dough for breads and pizza
  • Skip the rice in your sushi and add in another vegetable
  • Substitute sweet potato, squash or zucchini slices to make crust for quiche
  • Crisp kale or Brussels sprouts to top salads rather than croutons

Slip Vegetables into other Concoctions

Veggies are easy to hide in many delicious recipes.  This is especially helpful when you’re trying to sneak in vegetables so your kids won’t notice them.  You can puree the vegetables before adding them or simply chop them finely so they are hard to identify.  Try these favorites with veggies added:

  • Spaghetti sauce
  • Sloppy Joes
  • Chili
  • Casseroles
  • Stews & Soups
  • Mac n Cheese
  • Scrambled Eggs

Other Ideas to Eat More Vegetables

Need more inspiration?  Here are additional ideas on how to eat more vegetables:

  • Use avocado or bean puree as a moisturizing spread rather than mayo
  • Crust your bread with a veggie – cauliflower works great here
  • Add vegetables to other side dishes like rice pilaf, risotto and pasta salads
  • Fry your vegetables, but use a healthy, all-natural oil
  • Eat veggies for breakfast – straight up or mixed in a breakfast food, get one serving in to kickstart your day.
  • Veggie Burger – enough said!
  • Add vegetables to your power smoothie.
  • Fill half your plate with vegetables at lunch and dinner.
  • If you don’t like the flavor of vegetables, spice up your veggies with flavors you do like.
  • Scoop out a vegetable and use it as a bowl, such as a large mushroom or a bell pepper.  Be sure to eat the bowl too!
  • Change the texture of vegetables to make them more palatable.  For instance, you can shave asparagus, Brussels sprouts and kale so they are less dense.
  • Top your salads with flavors you love like grilled chicken, nuts or cranberries

Enjoy your veggies with these ideas on how to eat more vegetables!

How to Get the Most out of your Office Space: The Nitty Gritty

How to Get the Most out of your Office Space: The Nitty GrittyEarlier this week we brought you basic ideas for how to get the most out of your office space.  From your desk position and lighting, to temperature and organization, our tips are designed to help you focus and be your most productive self.  Today we’re getting into some more subtle details that can really make the difference when you try to get the most out of your office space.


Unless you work in an extremely strict office environment, you can add a little décor to get the most out of your office space.  While posters of inspirational quotes can give you a boost now and then, science says bringing nature into your office is the best choice.  You can do this in several ways.  First, as discussed in part 1 of this series, you can move your desk closer to the window to enjoy natural light and the sights of nature.  Secondly, you can bring in some potted plants to place on your desk or on the floor around your office.  (Watering them daily will give you a good reason to walk around a bit too.)  Finally you can bring in your own artwork of your favorite nature scenes.  Anything from snow-capped mountains and fields of flowers, to beautiful sunsets on the beach and trees in the park can boost your mood and bring on a more positive attitude at work.


Much like décor, sounds of nature are the best choice for your office space.  Play a rainforest, ocean or bird-chirping soundtrack as you plow through your workday.  These are even better than the peaceful harmonies or classical music.


So, you may not be allowed to paint the walls in your office, but even subtle color choices surrounding you can inspire more productivity and a more relaxed state of being.  Blue is the top choice when it comes to both of those goals, however you should incorporate whatever colors bring out the best in you.  Bring items from home to line your desk or hang on your walls so you can let the power of color work for you.


What you see, hear and even smell effects your creative process and work effectiveness.  We don’t recommend lighting a candle in your office space because it may be a fire hazard, but you can bring along a spice jar or a plug-in air freshener to get your nose in the game.  Peppermint, lavender and citrus improve your mood while cinnamon and wood scents make you more focused.  These will be especially helpful around lunchtime if your co-workers microwave meals stink up the office.


Studies show bringing your dog to work is an excellent idea if it is permitted in your office.  First, it will probably make you like your job better to have your best friend along.  But having your dog in the office may make you less stressed because pets in general are great stress relievers.

Switch things up now and then.  Work from a conference room alongside your co-workers for a few days or ask if you can spend half a day working at a coffee shop.  These environmental changes, even if only temporary, can help you see your work in a new light.

Take breaks often to invigorate your mind.  You may think pausing work is a waste of time, but it actually increases your productivity and creativity.  Get up for a brief walk, chat with a co-worker or read a non-work related article every hour.  Just be careful not to let your 5 minute brain-boost turn into a 1-hour social media session.

How to Get the Most out of your Office Space: The Basics

How to Get the Most out of your Office Space: The BasicsIf you work full time, you probably spend most of your waking hours during the week in your office.  Therefore, your office space should become a home away from home and be set up to maximize your productivity, efficiency, creativity and energy.  Even if you have little control of the size, shape and location of your office, you can make a few simple adjustments to ensure you get the most out of your office space.  Here are our best tips:

Desk and Chair

You probably know by now that the sedentary lifestyle contributes to chronic disease and a shorter lifespan.  Yes, sitting all day is just that dreary when it comes to your health.  Standing desks are the new “it” office furniture because they allow you to be productive while on your feet.  Not all offices can make the switch so if you have a regular seated desk, get up and walk around at least once an hour.  Have “walking meetings” or go to the cafeteria and use a high top table for a few hours of your workday.

For seated desks, make sure your computer monitor is approximately 30 inches from your eyes and at eye level.  Your arms should extend naturally to your keyboard without tensing your shoulders and your feet should be on the ground or on a foot rest.  Get an adjustable chair that will keep you comfortable and offer lower back support.  You should be in a slightly reclined position and consider using a pillow for added comfort and support.


In an office outside your home, lighting is probably outside your control. If you can make a suggestion to your employer, request natural light bulbs which you can explain will make you more alert and productive.  Should you be so lucky to have a window in your office, move your desk closer to utilize natural lighting as much as possible.  Otherwise you can invest in a light therapy system that will give you the benefits of natural light when you’re cooped up indoors.


Office spaces are notoriously cold but studies show that warmer temperatures promote more productivity and accuracy.  Anywhere upwards of 70 degrees should do it.  If you cannot control the thermostat, bring along a sweater or lap blanket to make your own heat.


How organized your office space is may be somewhat of a personal preference and you’ll have to gage the benefits of organization vs. clutter based on trial and error.  Some camps believe that a messy office makes workes scattered and unfocused, and may cause you to waste time as you are looking for important papers and files.  Others say clutter makes you more creative as your mind reacts differently when items are left about.  If a messy office drives you nuts, however, filling it with clutter will not do you any good. So you’ll have to be the judge of what works best for you here.  Just remember, an immaculate desk isn’t always the best choice.

Later this week we’ll be back with more tips for how to get the most out of your office space!

10 Tips for Surviving the Summer Heat

It’s hot out there in the summertime!  Surviving the summer heat is tough when you’re spending time at the beach, pool, sporting events and other fun outdoor summer gatherings.  Today we have 10 tips for surviving the summer heat!

Tip #1:  Stay in the Shade

This is somewhat of a no-brainer but when you are in direct sunlight, you’re going to get warm much faster than if you stay in the shade.  Seek shade whenever possible.  For a picnic, find a nice spot under a tree.  At the pool or beach, bring along an umbrella.  For tailgating, easy to assemble tents are helpful for shading you and your friends.

Tip #2:  Hydrate

Drinking water all day long on hot summer days is essential to surviving the summer heat.  If you are thirsty, you know you’ve waited too long to drink.  Sip water constantly throughout the day to avoid dehydration.

10 Tips for Surviving the Summer HeatTip #3: Dress for the Heat

Lose fitting lighter color clothes will help keep you cool when you are outdoors.  Also wear a hat with a large brim to shade your face and upper body from the sun.

Tip #4:  Avoid Peak Sun Hours

Spending time outdoors in the early morning, evening and night are better options.  If you are gardening, exercising, visiting an outdoor attraction or playing sports outdoors, go early or late to avoid the hottest part of the day.

Tip #5:  Soak Midday

On really hot and steamy days, cool off by taking a dip in the pool, soaking in a lukewarm bath or enjoying a refreshing shower.  This will help cool you down and hopefully allow your body to return to a more stable state.

Tip #6:  Be Smart about Fans

Fans may make you feel better but they aren’t necessarily cooling off your body.  For effective cooling, fans should turn counter-clockwise.  (You can reverse them in the winter to help circulate hot air.)  Create a cross breeze with fans by opening a window and placing fans facing in several directions throughout the room.

Tip #7:  Unplug

Turning off lights, unplugging electronics and steering clear of hot appliances like the oven and stove will help reduce the heat around you.  Plus it saves energy which is good for the environment and your pocket.

Tip #8:  Eat Optimally

Eating water-based foods will help keep you hydrated.  Also, avoid hot meals and heavy meals that will warm your insides and drain your energy.

Tip #9:  Cold Compresses

Using a damp washcloth, ice cube, ice pack or cold water bottle on pulse points like your wrists, neck, knees and elbows can immediately cool you down if you’re feeling faint from the heat.

Tip #10:  Sleep Tight

At night, keep your sheets cool by selecting light-weight cotton in light shades.  You can even put your sheets in the freezer to cool them off before bedtime.  Sleeping alone reduces the heat generated in your bed and also spreading out wide will keep you cooler.  Another way to beat nighttime heat is sleeping nude.

Summer Beauty Tips

summer beauty tipsSummer is in full swing and hopefully your summer glow is too.  With a little more skin exposure and lots of fun happenings, every glam gal could use a few summer beauty tips to keep her lookin’ her best.  Check out our top summer beauty tips here!


  • Everyone knows the #1 rule of summer is…wear your sunscreen!  For best protection select a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher and re-apply several times during the day.  Also, look for a non-comedogenic sunscreen that won’t clog your pores.
  • Most gals long for a nice tan in the summer months but don’t go about it the right way.  The safest option is a sunless tanning lotion or glow lotion that will give you a hint of a tan without the dangerous side-effects of free radicals.
  • Moisturize often to keep your skin supple and soft.  You can lock in some of the dampness from your refreshing shower by using a moisturizing body wash and then applying lotion immediately when you get out.  Buy moisturizers with natural anti-inflammatory ingredients like aloe vera that will help correct some of the damage done by sun exposure.
  • Exfoliate to help refresh your skin, but do it at night so new, tender skin cells are not irritated by the sun.  Be sure to exfoliate your chest too as this is an area sits high and gets a lot of sun exposure when you’re wearing scoop neck tops, sun dresses and bathing suits.  Start at your neck and gently exfoliate down to your breast to avoid premature aging of chest skin.
  • Invest in a signature hat this summer that will keep you looking hot while staying cool and shielding your face.  This protective fashion wear is multi-functional!
  • Shave your legs, armpits and bikini area the night before or several hours before visiting the beach or pool.  When salt, chlorine and UV rays get into freshly opened follicles, it can result in rashes, bumps and razor burn.
  • Eat antioxidants that will help combat the free radicals you’re getting form the sun.  Fresh fruits and veggies are chock full of antioxidants and are deliciously refreshing for light summer meals.


  • Try going bare-skinned during the summer.  This will not only show off your beautiful summer glow, but also help prevent blemishes caused by that make-up and sweat combo.
  • Even without a base, you can highlight areas like your cheeks with bronzer and blush.
  • Select a few light and breezy summer hues for your eyelids and lips that will enhance your summer look.  Make sure your lip-wear includes SPF to protect those pretty smackers!
  • Get funky with your nail colors.  Neon nails or shades of blue or green are outrageously awesome for summertime.


  • Your hair needs a bit of protection from the sun too. You can do this by wetting your hair before going outdoors.  When your strands are moisturized, they’ll absorb fewer chemicals from the sun and chlorine.
  • If ever there was a time to go natural with your hair, it’s summer.  Let those locks roam free on pool and beach days.  Getting your hair wet and letting it air dry is a great summertime look.  To pull your hair back, try an athletic headband.
  • Moisturize your hair with a nutrient-rich conditioner.  Leave in conditioners are great for highly damaged hair.  Also try UV protection hair spirtz to repair and strengthen your strands.
  • Experiment with up-dos.  Keep your hair off your neck and out of your eyes with a swanky up-do.  Check out the newest clips and pins to assist with your new summer look next time you’re at the drugstore.

Have a fabulous summer with these summer beauty tips!

Routine Depression Screenings for Women

Mental health may have turned a new leaf as a major health concern, a step that mental health care professionals have been encouraging for years.  The U.S. Preventative Services Task Force makes recommendations for preventative health care measures such as screenings, services, supplements, medications and lifestyle changes that would improve the quality of life for patients where the benefits outweigh the risks.  This group has recommended routine depression screenings during primary care visits since 2002.  In a new development they recently amended their recommendation with more emphasis on depression screenings for women who are childbearing and childrearing.

It is estimated that 12% of Americans experience moderate to severe depression or anxiety.  Nearly half of this population admits that their mental state affects their professional and personal lives to a large extent.  Without routine depression screenings, up to half of depression cases go undetected and undiagnosed.

Routine Depression Screenings for WomenThe recommendation of routine depression screenings puts mental health in the same category as other serious and chronic physical health conditions including diseases like cancer, heart disease, diabetes or Alzheimer’s disease.  The screening process is as innocuous as they come, a simple questionnaire from health care providers regarding the mental state and feelings of depression, anxiety and stress of patients.  This is far less invasive and less expensive than screenings and procedures for other potential health risks such as MRIs, mammograms, colonoscopies and biopsies.

While health care providers recognize mental health as an important element of holistic health and preventative health care, a stigma remains in the eyes of our society.  This may be one reason that depression screenings are even more necessary.  If someone had a physical ailment, they may be more likely to raise a red flag than if they have bouts of depression or anxiety.  Yet the repercussions of mental health disorders can be just as devastating, especially as mental health is intimately intertwined with physical health and can lead to further health complications.

For women, depression screenings are especially important in childbearing and childrearing years.  Adding new family members can be a huge stressor.  With added hormones and the responsibility of caring for a new life, pregnant women and new mothers are at increased risk for depression.  And when mothers suffer, babies suffer too.  That’s why the USPSTF updated the recommendation with an emphasis on routine depression screenings for pregnant and postpartum women.

Mental health is just as crucial to our overall health outlook as our physical health.  Health care providers can help their patients identify and get treatment for mental health problems by following the new depression screening guidelines.

The Healthiest BBQ Foods

This Fourth of July weekend you may be hosting or heading to a BBQ.  With all of the scrumptious selections at a traditional BBQ, it may be difficult to make healthy choices.  Options may be limited and temptations are high.  Well, we’re here to say, you CAN eat healthy at a BBQ.  Today we’re sharing the healthiest BBQ foods and which ones to avoid.


Burgers, hot dogs and pork are among the major meats at most BBQs.  If you’re going to opt for the real deal, select lean, top grade cuts of ground beef, beef hot dogs and pork.  Alternatively, you can make delicious turkey burgers and turkey dogs that will satisfy the cravings with less fat and calories.  Chicken and salmon are also great choices for the grill.  If you’re cooking in advance, try a BBQ pulled chicken in the crock pot.

healthiest BBQ foods

When putting together your sandwich, keep a few things in mind: First, whole wheat bread is better than white bread.  Or better yet, try an open faced sandwich with only one side of the bun.  Use lower fat and calorie condiments like mustard and relish rather than mayo and ketchup.  Skip the cheese because that adds about 100 calories per slice.

When grilling, use spices to flavor your meats.  Studies show they can actually cut down on HCAs caused by grilling.  Also, consider using alcohol as a marinade.  This also reduces carcinogenic effects from grilling.


While the meats may have fat, they pack in a lot of protein.  Many sides contribute extra fat and calories without much nutritional value.  Steamed, roasted or grilled veggies are a great choice and would definitely top the list of healthiest BBQ foods, or raw veggies with a hummus dip are another way to go.  Potato and pasta salads made the traditional way use a lot of mayonnaise which can be very fattening.  Instead, try a quinoa or brown rice side dish tossed with olive oil, spices and chopped veggies.  Side salads are another option that can help fill you up on nutrient-rich vegetables.  If you decide to have corn, skip the butter and enjoy the natural sweetness of the kernels.


Who can resist a chocolate firecracker tort, apple pie or an American flag cupcake?  Desserts are challenging and may be the one area where you splurge a little.  If you want to try a dessert, share it with a friend or just slice a nibble to give yourself a tidbit of the flavor without overdoing it.  Fresh fruit salad is a grand idea for a healthy dessert or juicy, sticky watermelon slices make a fabulous alternative that is both sweet and hydrating.  Frozen fruit bars are another healthy way to cool off at your holiday BBQ.


As with any healthy diet, avoid sugary sodas and sweet tea.  You may be tempted to have a margarita, sangria or other fruity cocktail at your July 4th BBQ but those are laden with empty calories.  A glass of wine or a light beer is a much better choice if you’re going to indulge in an alcoholic beverage.  Also consider water flavored with fruit slices or sparkling water to spice up your non-alcoholic selections.

Making Healthy Choices

It is hard to make healthy choices in social situations, especially if you’re a guest and the menu is out of your control.  You may want to ask your host what will be served so you can think ahead and plan accordingly.  You can also volunteer to bring several dishes to ensure you, and others, have healthy options.

Enjoy your 4th of July weekend with these healthiest BBQ foods.  After the holiday, you’ll be proud of your commitment to your health.

8 Reasons to Get a Workout Buddy

Studies show that working out with a partner has many benefits.  Ultimately, it can help you have better success in reaching your goals faster.  Whether you are trying to get healthier, lose weight, tone or lift your mood, working out with a friend is much better than doing it solo.  Today we’re sharing 8 reasons to get a workout buddy to help keep your fitness goals on track.

Accountability:  Setting fitness goals is terrific, but having a workout buddy help keep you accountable to your goals is even better.  Once you tell someone your goal, it is more real and you’ll feel more inclined to work towards achievement.  Your workout buddy will also help remind you of your goals to ensure you stay on the right path.  Also, when you have a workout buddy that is depending on you, you’ll be less likely to skip workouts or go easy on yourself.  A workout buddy requires you to make a plan and stick to it.

8 Reasons to Get a Workout BuddyFun:  Working out alone can be boring and losing interest is a fast way to fall off your routine.  Having a workout buddy makes exercising more fun.  You get to hang out with your friend while checking off your daily workout.  Even if your exercise isn’t conducive to chit-chat or you’re too out of breath to have a conversation, just being with a buddy is more fun than being by yourself.

Motivation:  Everyone goes through ups and downs when trying to achieve fitness goals.  You may start out strong but lose motivation.  A workout buddy can help lift your spirits when you need a boost.  Seeing your friend work as hard as you can be just the motivation you need to stick to it and achieve your goals.

Safety:  Working out with a partner is safer than exercising alone.  A workout buddy can help ensure you have proper form when doing exercises and is on the scene to help if you have an injury.  You’ll always have a spotter for weight lifting, someone to hold your feet for sit-ups and you’ll never be out by yourself on a late night jog.  There is safety in numbers, especially when it comes to working out.

Competition:  Healthy competition can help you work harder to achieve your goals.  If your workout buddy is experiencing better results, you’ll probably push yourself a bit more to try to achieve the same success.  Even small daily competitions such as racing to a finish line, doing more reps or reaching a higher intensity can be helpful in making a difference towards your goals.

Support:  With a workout buddy you’ll always have a cheerleader by your side.  On those rough days when you don’t think you can take another step, your workout buddy will encourage and support you through it.  When you cannot believe in yourself, your workout buddy will!

Variety:  Your partner will bring different skills and interests to your workout regimen.  Together you can try new exercise classes, sports and workout activities.  You may not have been adventurous enough to try belly dancing or mountain climbing on your own, but with your workout buddy, you may be more likely to give them a go.

Cheaper:  You and your workout buddy can split the cost of equipment and even hire a trainer together.  These items and services can add up but going halvies can make the bill more tolerable.

Get your fitness goals in gear with a workout buddy this summer!

New Food Labels Coming to a Package Near You

new food labelsLast month the Food and Drug Administration announced a recommendation for new food labels for all packaged food items in the U.S.  The nutritional guidelines are undergoing final review but are expected to go into effect over the next few years.  All packages require updating by July 2018.

What is changing about standard food labels?

Food labels will follow generally the same format but the information on them will change somewhat.  Here’s what you can expect:

Calories:  The font listing the total number of calories per serving will be larger and it is no longer mandatory to include “calories from fat.”

Servings:  Serving sizes are becoming more reasonable for what the average person would eat at one time.  For instance, a bottle of soda or a can of soup would be considered one serving, whereas old labels list it as two servings.  Larger packages with multiple servings will show nutritional information for one serving as well as the entire package in a two-column format.  The serving size section will also appear in a larger font.

Sugars:  Packages will now be required to list the amount of added sugar to food products.  This will allow consumers to differentiate added sugars from natural sugars.

Vitamins and Minerals:  Vitamin D, potassium, iron and calcium will now be required categories including showing the quantity and the percent of recommended daily value.  Vitamin A and Vitamin C will be optional.

Daily Recommended Values:  These are updated to reflect current scientific research regarding the amount of specific nutrients we need daily.

*Total fat, saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, carbohydrates (including fiber and sugars) and protein will all continue to be listed on new food labels.

Why are food labels changing?

Current food labels were instituted in 1994 but much research has been done about nutrition and the human body in the past 22 years.  Therefore, the Food and Drug Administration believes the guidelines on how nutrition is reported on food packages should be updated.

Some of the changes are for the sake of clarity, such as larger fonts and more accurate serving sizes.  Other changes are based on what information experts believe we should be concerned about in our diet, like added sugars versus natural sugars.  And yet other changes reflect research indicating the importance of certain nutrients like potassium and Vitamin D that contribute to healthy development, sustained health and lowered risk of chronic disease.

Preventative health is intimately related to what we eat.  New food labels are an effort to better inform consumers about food and help people make better nutritional choices.
