I’m reading an interesting book titled The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson, and it is fascinating! So much of what Olson talks about is in perfect alignment with what we teach our clients – that even very small changes in the way you eat can create big differences in your health over time.

Let’s say you want to lose weight (or maybe just not gain any more). Experts tell us that about 3,500 calories equal one pound. So, in other words, if you cut 3,500 calories from your diet, burn 3,500 calories more through exercise, or some combination of the … Read the rest

Lunch – we ignore it, skip it, or grab it on the go. We buy it, share it, or bring it from home. We pack it in brown bags, squeeze it into Tupperware, or store it in a desk. We carry it in backpacks, purses or briefcases. But do we really take this important meal seriously?

Many families dine in restaurants several times each week. Especially when both parents work, finding time to cook at home can be challenging. And, if you travel with work, then you are almost forced to eat out a lot.

Dinning out can be a social experience too. It brings the entire family together, even if everyone is going in different directions during the day. Often, other extended family members are included too.
