I loved this recipe from Cooking LIght Magazine
. It was given to me by my husband's coworker. The chicken is stuffed with creamy goat cheese and caramelized onions. Served with an easy pan sauce, it really was delicious, and well worth the effort to make.

Morgan Spurlock gained 25 pounds and suffered physically and emotionally after eating exclusively at McDonald's for just one month in his excellent documentary Super Size Me
But that’s not the reason “minimize fast food” is the rallying cry of almost all serious health and weight-loss advocates.
Spurlock’s personal experiment makes for good entertainment, but personal stories aren’t scientific proof, and… Continue

From Ask Dr. Mao:
The healing power of soup: something that both scientists and grandmothers can agree on. From helping you lose weight to warming you up from the inside out to boosting your immunity, soup is a winter staple that you shouldn’t be without. Maybe that is one reason that it is celebrated this… Continue

As much as I hate to admit it, I’m fast approaching the big 50, and losing a few pounds has become increasingly difficult. Partly because I’m a foodie that loves to cook and loves to eat, and partly because my body has decided to jump ship when it comes to burning those extra calories.
When it comes to losing weight my favorite mantra is “calories in - calories out.” These days the calories in seem to be sticking no matter how hard I work at the calories out.
So, I’ve… Continue

From the Globe and Mail:
Expanding waistlines create risks to your career, according to a new study that found overweight employees are much more likely to be overlooked for opportunities, advancement and pay raises than slimmer staff.
At the same time, research shows that Canadians… Continue

If you have spent any time in home health care physical therapy, you can't help but notice the less then ethical practices that are depleting our Medicare dollars faster than they can be replenished.
I know, our government may not have their focus right but this is not a political blog here...
I'm focused on helping home health care PT's raise the bar if you will. Deliver the golden standard to the golden years. It seems the work ethic is slowly ebbing away...we must… Continue

I folks, it's been a while since you've seen my ugly mug in this place :-P Before I moved from Indonesia I had to stay in a hotel for a month and that didn't help with my weight loss, along with the stress of getting my wife's visa.
The move back to Scotland went well, but then here without a job, and six months later I still don't have a job, but still pressing on.
I hit a low point for about 2 months and piled on a good few… Continue

My husband loved this meal, and the whole dish was under 400 calories!
I love meals that come together in one skillet. This skillet contained creamy yukon gold potatoes, tender pork and mushrooms in an earthy herb sauce.
Be sure and use a wine you would drink when you’re making the sauce. Bad wine makes for a bad sauce!

From the NCPA:
President Obama is a great admirer of the Mayo Clinic. Time and again he has extolled it as an outstanding model of health care excellence and efficiency. So perhaps the president will give some thought to the Mayo Clinic's recent decision to stop accepting Medicare payments at its primary care facility in Glendale, Arizona, says… Continue

Quinoa is a dieter’s dream. High in protein and fiber, it’s filling and satisfying. Even if you’re not dieting after the holidays, but like to eat light and healthy, quinoa should be on your shopping list.
It’s such a versatile grain that’s cheap and quick to cook. I add it to soups, use it as a side dish, and make a salads out of it. I’ll often make extra and freeze it for a quick meal. Convinced yet?
If not, try this… Continue

January is that time of year where most of us make resolutions to lose weight and start exercising. I see examples of those resolutions at the gym. People get memberships as gifts, or decide they’ve indulged too much over the holidays and take advantage of gym membership specials.
More power to them, I say. I watch as new faces take up space on the treadmills and bikes, and while I have to admit it’s a bit irritating having to wait for an open treadmill, I truly hope they stick to… Continue

Starfish? Soldier? Yearner? How do you sleep? I fall firmly into the Fetus category of sleeping positions–curled up on my side–which, according to researchers at the Sleep Assessment and Advisory Service, suggests that I am a tough cookie with a sensitive heart. (And yes, it’s true…underneath it all I am a big mush.)
Sleep scientists believe the position in which a person sleeps offers important clues about their personality. Director… Continue

I find it very sad that people order tuna sandwiches at restaurants and fast food joints, thinking they're ordering something healthy. They have no idea that what they've ordered is laden with unhealthy fat and extra calories.
According to the dailyplate.com
, a typical tuna sandwich can have 290 calories, 6g of fat, and 2g of fiber.

That's a perfect dish for me because it uses brown rice originally so I don't have to substitute it and change cooking time.
You can use white rice but it will cook in only 20 minutes + 10 more minutes to cook the broccoli.
* 3 tbsp olive oil
* 2 shallots, minced
* 1 1/2 cup brown rice (long grain is perfect)
* 3 cups vegetable stock
* 1/2 lb. broccoli florets

The cold, dry air of fall and winter may come as a relief after a sticky summer, or it may make us mutter darkly as we crank up the heaters and huddle indoors. But either way, the dry air can bring with it dry skin, scratchy throats, congestion, and nosebleeds.
Relief from the dryness can come, whatever the season, from a humidifier to help put some moisture back into the air. It may also help to soothe the symptoms that result from colds and… Continue

To call in sick or not to call in sick? The question arises often during cold and flu season. Deciding whether you should take a day off may affect more than just you and your sickly self. Say it's Tuesday morning, and you awake coughing, sniffling, and sneezing - but you have a deadline to meet. You have a choice. You can either:
Slog in to work, spewing sneezes and rubbing your nose raw with tissue. Your eyes glaze over as you stare at your computer screen. Despite your attempts to… Continue
