Growing up we’ve all heard people talk about the issues they’re dealing with because “it runs in my family.” Seldom are they discussing anything good. They’re usually explaining away diseases of the body or mind, weight issues, difficulties in money, relationships or jobs/business. But decades of research has found that these issues are actually the results of what runs in families, not the causes. The top 7 Killers that are often passed generation to generation, causing diabetes, heart disease, are what I refer to as the “Uns”. How many of these “Uns” have you seen your parents struggle with? How many are trying to take you out today? Are they attacking your children right now?
This month marked the 100th anniversary of the celebration of Mother’s Day. The celebration of the Director of Operations for the family – a.k.a. ‘MOM” – is a cherished ritual.
Mother’s Day gives her that something special back. That something is a special message “We see what you do for us. Thank you. You are appreciated. You are loved.” This day also reinforces the bond between mother and child, and exhibits the admiration of the spouse or partner.
Can you believe it’s almost March! Now that 2014 is well underway, how many of you are still going strong with your New Year healthier you resolutions? Are you still exercising every day? Are you whipping up delicious, healthy meals that provide you energy, stamina, clarity and that sexy new body?
The truth is, 95% of people who make resolutions abandon them by January 15. It’s challenging enough to achieve an important goal. And to do it today — a time of massive, unprecedented challenges — is an even bigger problem.

“Excuse me do you have ANYTHING VEGAN?” This was the question Anything Vegan asked all day Sunday on our vegan grub prowl at Taste of D.C. We found a few good hits like this Authentic Greek vegan, gluten-free salad dressing formulated by restaurant Athens Grill/Angeli Gourmet owner Anna Maria Angelakis. When I tasted it I had a flashback, in 2008 I ate at this little Greek Restaurant in Australia when I bit into my portobello salad wrap I was hit with a remarkable burst of flavors that I will always remember and never tasted again…until Sunday at Taste of D.C, this dressing taste like Greece in a bottle!
This Thanksgiving (and every day) I am thankful for the family and friends who live nearby. Travel has one of the most significant environmental impacts of all our activities. Having a local Thanksgiving is a great way to avoid stressful travel, break bread with neighbors, and add to your green life. If you are planning to go over the river and through the woods to visit family and friends this Thanksgiving though, travel smart. There is not much we can do to make traveling by plane much more efficient but if you are driving, make sure your car is tuned up and your tires are properly inflated. That’ll make your trip more economical. And don’t forget to carpool! Someone surely will be going your way.
The fate of the world is in our hands…or rather, on our forks. The food we choose to eat (or not eat) is a significant component of green living. One of the most effective steps you can take to a greener life is to reduce or eliminate from your diet animal-based foods like meat, eggs, and dairy. This is because raising animals for consumption uses more land and water, and produces more waste including greenhouse gases than growing plants. According to a New York Times article, raising, storing and transporting meat is responsible for almost 1/5 of greenhouse gas emissions! Even one meat-free meal per week could make a big difference in the fight against climate change. Whether you eat meat, live a vegetarian/vegan lifestyle, or are somewhere in between, go green with greens and the delicious recipes from AnythingVegan.com!

The China Study found an inverse relationship between the concentration of Vitamin C in the blood and prevalence of cancer. When levels of Vitamin C in the blood were low, families were more likely to have a high incidence of cancer. Low vitamin C was prominently associated with a higher risk for esophageal cancer, for leukemia, and cancers of the Naso-pharynx, breast, stomach, liver rectum, colon and lung. How is vitamin C able to do such amazing things? The antioxidants in these foods interfere with free radical damage to cells that can lead to cancer.
