Yoga: How It Works

Workout fads come and go, but virtually no other exercise program is as enduring as yoga. It's been around for more than 5,000 years.

Yoga does more than burn calories and tone muscles. It's a total mind-body workout that combines strengthening and stretching poses with deep breathing and meditation or relaxation.

There are more than 100 different forms of yoga. Some are fast-paced and intense. Others are gentle and relaxing. To continue reading, click


Don't Let 'Hanger' Get the Best of You

What do you call hunger mixed with anger? “Hanger.” Being hangry can lead to unhealthy snacking.

Hanger can happen to anyone. Feeling irritable and short-tempered is a natural result of hunger. In fact, it’s a part of our brain chemistry. The same mechanisms that manage our feelings of hunger also have an impact on our mood and emotions.  To continue reading, click here.

Why Practice Balance Poses

The most dramatic experience I ever had with my balance failing me was about 8 years ago. Swine flu was going around that year and got me, making me very, very sick. And while I felt awful and had all sorts of unfortunate symptoms, the one that stuck with me the most was my compete loss of balance. I remember trying to get up from my bed to go to the bathroom and immediately collapsing into a heap on the floor. It would be funny if it weren’t so scary. It is a rather peculiar feeling when you try really, really hard but are definitively unable to remain upright. And the stairs were positively terrifying. It took me three days to begin to regain my sense of balance and when I did it was a great relief.  To continue reading, click here.


4 Things to Do Before You Discipline Your Toddler

Toddlers can be a difficult, hardheaded bunch. Exploring the world around them is their top priority, which means getting into potentially dangerous situations is a constant concern for parents. Toddlers also tend not be too keen on listening to mom and dad, which makes this stage of development particularly frustrating. But that frustration can often lead to disciplining a toddler when it's unnecessary or even inappropriate. Here's a few strategies to help parents determine if discipline is appropriate as well as how to avoid it all together.  To continue reading, click here.



Crock Pot Chicken Cacciatore

 (6 servings)
Original Recipe

This hearty, tomatoey stewed dish gets a low-carb, slow cooker makeover in this alternative to  traditional chicken cacciatore. Cacciatore means "hunter" in Italian, so chicken cacciatore is literally "chicken hunter's style."


  • 3 pounds skinless chicken thighs and/or legs (bone-in; if using boneless, 8 or 9 thighs)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
  • 8 ounces brown crimini or portobello mushrooms, roughly chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 14-oz can chopped tomatoes
  • 2/3 cup dry wine (white or red)
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning mixture, or 1 teaspoon each oregano, basil, and thyme
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/3 cup tomato paste
  • 1 inch of Parmesan cheese rind (optional)


1. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Put in crock pot set to high, and cover. Alternatively, you can brown the chicken in a skillet and then transfer to the crockpot. You can use the same skillet for cooking the vegetables.

2. Heat olive oil over high heat in a large skillet. Cook the onion and green pepper for 2 to 3 minutes, then add the mushrooms. Two minutes later, add the garlic. Cook for another minute.

3. Add the tomatoes, wine, herbs, and more salt and pepper. Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, until liquid is almost completely boiled away. Taste and adjust seasonings, if necessary. If it tastes harsh or acidic, add just a touch of sweetener (one drop of Sweetzfree can do the trick).

4. Add the tomato paste and Parmesan cheese rind, and stir to combine. Spoon ingredients onto the top of the chicken, and cook for 3 hours on high or 6 to 8 hours on low. About half an hour before you are ready to eat, check and adjust seasonings one more time.
