Saturday night we went to a 50’s dance party at our clubhouse. They were serving hamburgers, french fries and rootbeer floats. Not exactly healthy fare! Plus we don’t eat meat. Se we brought our own veggie burgers and used their rools, lettuce, tomato and onions. We had a few fries and no rootbeer float. Npt 100% healthy but we turned a dietary disater into something not so bad. You can still go to all your fun events and eat healthier. Make the choice and follow through with it.  Dancing is good exercise and the commradery of being with your friends and neighbors is mood lifting. The choice is yours … choose wisely.

How many times have you given in to your kids and given them fried chicken and French fries or a hamburger so you don’t have to listen to complaints? Our life is stressful enough, we don’t need to hear our kids constantly complain about what they are eating. It so ease to say “They will only eat …”. We are parents and therefore our kids teachers. We should be teaching them what they should be eating to remain healthy. If we give in to their desires, we could be making them unhealthy and sickly. Be a parent and teach! It may not be the easiest road but it’s the right one!

We all know that too much salt is bad for you. Most people who are taking in too much salt don’t get it from the shaker. It comes from hidden salts in foods that we don’t associate with salty flavors. Yahoo Health recently ran the top ten hidden sources of salt:
• Salad dressing, dips, ketchup, mustard, soy sauce
• Cheeses
• Canned soups, stews and vegetables
• Breakfast cereals
• Bagels and baked goods
• Cured, smoked and deli meats
• Anything labeled low salt. The law says it must be 25% lower than regular product. If the regular product is very high the low version is still high.
• Fast food and French fries
• Products labeled “Low Fat” or “Heart Healthy” uses salt to make the product taste good.
• Some desserts like puddings and cream pies
