February is American Heart Month
It’s a good time to focus on heart health and the things we can do to combat heart disease — the leading cause of death in the United States. If you enjoy a tall, cool glass of milk every day or maybe indulge in a few splashes on your breakfast cereal, then you’re already engaging in a heart-healthy diet.

The days are getting longer. The nights are getting warmer.
It can mean only one thing – summer is almost upon us. And that means that kids will soon be freed from the shackles of their daily school routines. For them, it’s heaven: Sleeping late. Playing with friends. Hanging out at the pool. But it can also mean that they’re no longer receiving the same level of nutrition they were when they were getting their lunches at school.

Love them or loathe them, they’re here to stay. New Year’s resolutions are a staple in our culture and just about everyone I know makes them. My resolution is to add more protein to my diet. Why? Because protein is crucial to bone health and as we already know, women are more susceptible to weak and brittle bones as we age.
