  • Asparagus, April’s vegetable

    This month look for this wonderfully, flavorful vegetable at your local farmer’s market. Asparagus packs in a ton of good vitamins and minerals in those stalks! Steam it, pickle it, sauté it, roast it — the possibilities are endless!

    When buying asparagus, choose stalks that are bright green with purple shaded tight tips; these are the most tender and tasty. It is best to cook it soon after buying, because asparagus can become tough and woody after several days.

  • Beauty begins within: taking time to enjoy life

    Life style changes in diet, exercise and stress reduction are the premise of healthy living and healthy looks. What we think and what we eat are at the foundation of how we look. What we take time to enjoy in the beauty around us not only gives greater meaning to our life, it adds to the beauty that is reflected in our appearance. Busy schedules and rushing adds years to our appearance and causes a decline in organ function. It is critically important to take time out to relax and indulge ourselves at times.
