  • Dinner Tonight: Broths

    by Paula Gallagher | September 26, 2017

    brothBroths are liquids that are full of flavor, made with water that has been slowly simmered with bones, meat, fish or vegetables. They can be eaten alone, like a soup, or used to cook other foods like soups, stews, gravies, and so much more.

    Broths can be easily bought in the store, but they are just as easily made at home. There is nothing like a pot of simmering broth on the stove, plus you can control the ingredients in your broths, especially salt content. Broths are nourishing and offer many health benefits.

    I like to "stock" up on my broths because I find I turn to them as soon as the runny noses and itchy throats start. Read more

  • Your Diet Legacy and Your Daughter

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | September 25, 2017

    mother-daughter-cooking2As moms, we often try to instill our beliefs and standards in our children. Often, our goal is to ensure that our children learn from the benefit of our knowledge and experience so that they can create enriching, rewarding lives for themselves. So why is it then that one of the most significant messages moms often pass on to their daughters is the legacy of… dieting?

    Every mom wants the best for her children; there is no question about that. But unfortunately, when a mom lives through the emotional and physical pain that her overweight body may cause, she unknowingly often passes the “right to diet” on as though it were a “rite of passage” into womanhood.

  • Cold or Allergies - How Do You Know?

    by Paula Gallagher | September 20, 2017

    My neighbor has been struggling with a cough, scratchy throat and runny nose for 2 months. She can't figure out if it's a cold or allergies. She is not alone. Fall is a prime time for allergies, but it's also the time when you start to get more colds, thanks to kids bringing back all sorts of germs from school.

    While colds and allergies share common symptoms, their origin is different. A cold occurs when a virus enters the body. Symptoms are a reaction to your immune system’s fight against the infection.

    Meanwhile, allergies are an adverse reaction to a substance caused by an overactive immune system. Read more

  • Pass the Ketchup

    by Paula Gallagher | September 19, 2017

    ketchupFor the longest time, I feared ketchup would be the only source of fruit my children ingested. Unfortunately, most store-bought ketchups are laden with sugar (high-fructose corn syrup) and other ingredients that I shouldn't want my kids ingesting at every meal (or any meal).

    I found a recipe for homemade ketchup and I made a small batch to test it out. Truthfully, it did not go over well, but I continued to experiment and eventually found something that everyone likes. My kids now ask for my ketchup when we go out, as opposed to the regular stuff offered at restaurants.

    And ketchup isn't just a condiment used to hide the taste of food! It also has – or can have – many health benefits.  Read more

  • Do You Suffer From Protein Anxiety?

    by Neal Barnard, MD, FACC | September 18, 2017

    vegetarian-proteinDo you suffer from “protein anxiety”? It’s a condition commonly seen in people who have never had a protein deficiency, but worry endlessly that they’re not getting enough. They pile on the meat, fish, eggs or cheese, trying to avert an imaginary lack of protein.

    Of course, the body needs some protein to build and repair body tissues. But protein is widely available in beans, vegetables, and grains. It is almost impossible not to get all the protein you need, even without eating meat, dairy or eggs.

    Here are the numbers: An average women needs about 46 grams of protein per day; Read more
