  • Suggestions for more nutritious meeting snacks

    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.

  • Plan your garden for maximum production

    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.

    “As we sat beside my 5-month-old son’s hospital bed, we begged God for a miracle.  Smith had been fighting 24 hours for his life but, really, he had fought since birth. Smith was born with a rare liver disease called Biliary Atresia. The bile ducts in his liver were not formed correctly. Bile was trapped and quickly caused cirrhosis to his liver,” explains Smith Webster’s mom, Holly from Jefferson County.
