  • It seems like we see the typical donuts and pastries at every work meeting we attend. This can be trouble for individuals trying to maintain a healthy diet, considering a single donut or pastry could contain 300 calories or more. Next time, try serving some healthier food options.

    Below are some suggestions for healthier snacks for any time of day.

    Pass the water. Be sure to have cups on hand for a water fountain or bottled water as a beverage option. Bypass the sugar-sweetened beverages including soda and fruit juices.

  • Last week, we focused our attention on choosing seeds for our gardens. For all gardeners, we aspire to have a successful gardening season—full of bounty and enjoyment. Let us continue the gardening discussion with some helpful tips to keep in mind for your garden.

    Plan your garden on paper before you begin. Draw a scale model of your garden space.

    Plan to plant perennials like asparagus, rhubarb, chives, and horseradish along one side of the garden since they may produce for six to twelve years.
