Spring Body Cleanse

By Crystal Wakoa             

If the thought of spring cleaning your body through detoxification brings up confusion or fear, well it’s no wonder.

Kick-start Your Kid's Day

By Sandy Beck

Your mother probably told you that breakfast was the most important meal of the day. And now you’re saying it. Just as your car won’t get very far on fumes, your children also need a meal that will refuel and sustain them until lunchtime.

A breakfast that is rich in whole grains and protein and low in sugar has been shown to boost attention span, concentration and memory, and that will prepare their minds and bodies to function at peak performance in school all day, every day.

The Many Faces of Winter Squash Soup

By Crystal Wakoa   

At last, the air is crisp and cool. Evening temperatures call out the need for sweaters and a yearning for the comfort of hot soup. Nothing fits the bill like winter squash. The name is a bit of a misnomer, as winter squash are planted in the spring along with summer squashes, but take much longer to ripen.
