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!

New Years Resolution

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.

In the modern-day rat race, while striving to achieve financial success, or just plain trying to keep up with the darn Joneses (Who the heck are the Joneses anyway?), we have literally run ourselves ragged.  We spend long hours at the office, eat fast food and junk food, or skip meals altogether.  We also lack daily physical exercise, sunshine, and adequate sleep.  All of these detrimental lifestyle behaviors are negatively affecting our health.

Clients often assure me that the real reason they cannot get into the kitchen and cook a wholesome meal is that they do not have the proper pots and pans, or other equipment to get started.  That's hogwash!  For basic cooking purposes, all you really need to get started is one large frying pan and one large soup pot or six- to eight-quart stockpot, both with lids.  That's it.

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.

Years ago while traveling in France, I passed a sign that said Thalassotherapy. French friends told me that thalasso places use seawater for health benefits and that the French government sponsors these health spas. Apparently the French government no longer pays for thalassotherapy, and that had been my favorite part of the story. I'd love to think my government would pay for spa treatments. The real truth is that the French coast is dotted with these saltwater healing plants and everyone is welcome to go and pay their own way.

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.

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.

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"

Two students from Rice University in Houston created a centrifuge to help diagnose anemia using only thirty dollars worth of common household items: a hot glue gun, a few cut up plastic combs, empty yoghurt containers, and a salad spinner. Inventors, sophomore Lila Kerr and freshman Lauren Theis, were challenged to make a medical device that is portable and can operate without electricity.
