Grocery shopping does not top the list of my favorite things to do, but I’m probably in our local market at least three times a week just for more fresh fruits and vegetables. If you must know, I have to go back every few days just to keep my home stocked with oranges. Each time I buy them, I purchase 15 to 20 at a time. I’m not kidding.
Do you remember the days when yogurt was a thin pudding like substance filled with sugar and a bit of fruit? In the past few years, what we used to think of as a healthy snack has gotten a bit more confusing as the buzz has turned to probiotics, prebiotics, and the various cultures that we now are being told are good for our gut.

Women’s Health Needs Change Throughout Her Life – Ladies, you eat right every day. You never skip meals. You don’t “cheat” with a snack of crispy, crunchy salty, delicious chips, or a decadently sweet chocolate-dipped cookie and, you never even think about putting rich cream in your morning coffee. Right? Right? (We can practically hear the crickets chirping. Your silence speaks volumes.)
When was the last day you stopped to take care of yourself? Or better yet, to really spoil yourself? Amidst the craziness that is life – taking care of your families, running our homes and for many of us operating as businesswomen as well, we often let ourselves move to the very bottom of the list.
I’ve always prided myself on my vision. When I was younger, I used to brag about my eyesight to the point of saying that Superman wished he could see as well as I could. My hubris came back to haunt me when I reached my 30s. Suddenly, my vision had met its kryptonite.
For at least the last three years (and I’m guessing many more), the number-one New Year’s resolution has been some version of lose weight, get fit, or eat healthier. We live in a society that is yo-yo obsessed with fitness, health and appearance. We want to eat healthier, but we love food. We feel better when we exercise, but we are always talking about how busy we are.
Whether you’re in the mood for a sweet treat, or you’re making a romantic dessert for your significant other, chocolate covered strawberries are a great way to enjoy something decadent with the added freshness and nourishment of fruit!
I got my first taste of curry while traveling to London for business. One of my colleagues insisted that I join him for lunch at his favorite curry restaurant. I agreed because I’m an adventurous eater and I like to try new things.
By far one of my favorite things to do with my small people is to head outside. Whether we are running, jumping or just enjoying each other in the fresh air, I do love that quality family time and I especially appreciate that the exercise is good for us. But you and I both know the opportunities for this type of family togetherness greatly diminishes as the temperatures drop.
