21-Day Challenge

My husband, daughter, and I are embarking on a 21-Day Challenge to eat cleanly. My daughter has tried it before -- for my husband and me, this is all new, but we consented to give it a try, all in the name of family harmony. Given my recent podcast with Michael Farrington on nutrition for junior tennis players, I thought I would expand on that theme and share some recipes and menu ideas that you can adapt to suit your family's needs. At the beginning of January, Emma returned to Atlanta for a 3-month stint, testing the local acting waters. She has been living in the Los Angeles area since leaving for college back in 2007. For those of you familiar with the film/TV industry, you know how tough it is for a young actress to break into the business. Emma has definitely felt the struggle, supporting her acting passion by holding various other jobs such as math tutor, hotel restaurant hostess, preschool assistant, and birthday party princess-for-hire. Anyway, the industry seems to be booming here in Atlanta, and several people have encouraged her to give it a shot, especially since she has a free place to live! So, that whole empty nest thing is on hiatus for now, thank goodness! So earlier this week, Emma proposed that the three of us take a clean eating challenge, something she has done through Chef V (who, sadly, doesn't ship her products to Atlanta) many times herself. I should mention that in addition to having a passion for acting, Emma also has a passion for cooking and has...

Did you know diabetes affects your mental health? From depression to relationship problems or mood swings, too much or too little glucose (sugar) circulating in the blood can trigger behavior and thought patterns that may seem unrelated to how much insulin is released by your pancreas. Out of control glucose levels influence how you feel and make decisions, your beliefs and, yes, your attitude, a very necessary component of your overall care.  The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states less than half the number of people with diabetes who have depression get treated, which leads to worsening stat...
