No ifs, ands, or buts about it: breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I realize I may sound like a nagging wife or mom and I don't care. Moms and wives (and dads and other caretakers) instinctively know loved ones need proper nourishment to start the day. If you are the modern American who typically skedaddles out of the house without eating breakfast, it's time to sit your butt down and listen up!

It was a beautiful midsummer's night on the patio of an Italian restaurant on the Hill in Saint Louis. We were celebrating my mother's 79th birthday. The dinner was fantastic; we had our fill of locally grown fresh green salad, whole grain penne with a homemade marinara sauce and a perfectly cooked piece of Dover sole. Everyone seemed content, until my teenage son looked at his plate and screamed.

Nothing grabs my attention quite as quickly as someone behind me on an airplane sneezing uncontrollably. Avoiding germs when traveling can be difficult, but there are ways to dodge them, or at least reduce the chance that your fellow travelers will infect you.
New Years Resolution
Tuesday, December 27th, 2011
When it comes to New Year resolutions there are three groups - those who DO make them, those who DO NOT, and those for whom IT DEPENDS.  I'm in that third group.

Those of us with gluten allergies or celiac disease are somewhat used to interrogating wait staff on what we can or cannot eat.  It's a totally different experience at Company Café in Dallas, Texas.  Gluten eaters may find themselves asking for the gluten version of things because pancakes, French toast and bagels are gluten free, unless you request the full flour version.

Travel expands horizons and introduces new concepts, unexpected people and opportunities you've never had. Sometimes, not often, those things can happen right at home. Last week Karen and I drove twenty minutes from our homes here in Dallas to the remarkable world of the Jjim-jil-bang or Korean bathhouse. We walked into King Spa and Sauna with no clue of what we were doing. It didn't matter-everyone was very kind and we got tips from fellow bathers as we went through the day.
cockroaches

My mother lifted a piece of lettuce on her plate and we discovered she had been given a bit of extra protein with her steak, in the form of a very well done cockroach.

After my initial reaction of pure horror, my mother waved to the maître d'. She showed him the cockroach. The management apologized profusely, and made it clear the restaurant would take care of it.

Remember the adage, "Women have to work twice as hard to be considered half as good"? Dr. Lois Frankel writes in her bestseller, Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office, "It's a myth that people get ahead because they work hard. The truth is, no one ever got promoted purely because of hard work. Likability, strategic thinking, networking, being a team player are but a few of the other factors that go into crafting a successful career."

There seems to be a lot of confusion around whole grains, and good and bad carbohydrates.  I think the pandemonium occurred somewhere along the path of human food consumption when someone erroneously stated that all carbohydrates were bad. Who knows how it happened? I can only guess that maybe an innocent victim was wolfing down an oversized bagel too quickly and it got lodged in his throat.

The other night at 9:30, the temperature here in Dallas was 100 degrees. We’ve been setting records all summer for the highest low temperature in a day and the most triple digit temperature days.

Getting and staying in shape is a high priority for most people, but often is challenging. Travel also affects one's success in keeping fitness habits.

I have a family of boots. Each pair of boots evokes a different feeling when I'm wearing them. The newest add to the collection are bright pea green (see photo) with a fit that feels as smooth as wax. Playful, these boots have some serious swagger! When I'm wearing them, I forget about all the others.

Many people have spent the last 2 years working even harder but for less return and recognition. They think they can't move on because another opportunity may not be out there, or fear what they're doing won't provide the level of income.

Their confidence has taken a big hit during these times. Yet some people seem to be doing better than ever. You may wonder "why does it look so easy for them"?

The foundation of their success is confidence.

Picture this: a beautiful sunset, a radiant rainbow, a horizon that beckons you to traverse the ocean to a continent beyond.  Everything seems possible.  It's all within your grasp.  You lean forward in your beach chair - ready to embark - a smile on your face as you breathe the crisp ocean air slowly into your lungs.

My son is about to depart on the trip of a lifetime. He will be trekking on China's northern Silk Road for a month with a group of students from his high school. During the past few months, we have received many e-mails from the trip organizer giving us information about China's politics, culture, and history.

holiday food

For people watching what they eat, the holidays lurk like monsters in a kid's closet. Sometimes we start eating what we know we shouldn't just because the holidays are coming: A preemptory shot of eggnog to keep feelings of deprivation at bay.

Much like the technological revolution, the green living revolution has seen jargon of its own develop and is, consequently, adding new words and terms to our mainstream language. The recently revised Shorter Oxford dictionary saw green terms such as the following added:

"carbon footprint"
"green audit"
"Chelsea tractor"
"carbon-neutral"
"emissions trading"

When my brain fog and unreliable memory got to be too much for me and my friends and family, I went to a doctor who gave me some hope and a book. This book, The Ultra Mind Solution -- Fix your broken brain by healing your body first: The simple way to defeat depression, overcome anxiety, and sharpen your mind, answered a lot of questions my shaky brain hadn't even come up with.
