Did you know that popcorn is healthy?
Yep, it’s true.
Not your movie theater popcorn of course; that is laden with saturated fat and calories (over 1000 in a large bag). Check out this article on movie theater popcorn from the CBC: http://www.cbc.ca/news/health/story/2009/11/19/popcorn-movie-theatre-salt-fat.html
However, home popped corn without butter is a great choice for a healthy snack. Did you know it’s a whole grain?
So enjoy some popped corn today and eat up your whole grains the fun way.

Did the holidays give you more than you bargained for?
If you´re like most people, you may have imbibed more than usual in high calorie drinks and desserts. With all the variety and options to choose from at holiday parties and dinners, it´s hard to keep saying no.
With the new year upon us, it´s a great time to reasses your goals, past and present, and make a plan to reach those goals.
Setting small, attainable goals are more reasonable than setting large, mostly unattainable goals.
Good luck on your path to health and wellness in 2011!
After every workout, you are probably thirsty, and also probably hungry, too.
Post workout drinks/meals can range from high carb to high protein, but may not have all the ingredients or ratios of macro nutrients that you need.
So what should you be drinking following your workout or training session?
Check out this article to learn more about the benefits of good old chocolate milk!
It’s inexpensive, tastes great, and it can get you through to your next meal.
Even before Christmas hits, the weight gain is steadily approaching.
Winter parties begin in November, usually, and include many alcoholic drinks, appetizers, mains, and desserts.
So what are some tips to help you stave off the weight gain and continue on your path to health and wellness?
- Eat before you go out; go slightly full already
- Decide ahead of time what you’ll allow yourself to give in to. Choose or two things ahead of time.
- Drink some water before you go, and throughout.
- Choose your drink wisely; wine vs. mixed drinks, eggnog vs. soda water, etc.
- Wear tight clothes; that way you will fit less in!
You don’t have to give up all the holiday treats, but try to make wise choices so you’re not stuck on a treadmill for four hours trying to balance your calorie intake.
Enjoy the holidays!
