Are You Getting Your Phytonutrients?
We all know that eating our fruits
and vegetables is good for us. They supply needed
vitamins, minerals, and fiber and are usually low in
calories. But another way that fruits and vegetables
benefit our health is through phytonutrients.
Phytonutrients are unique compounds found in fruits
and vegetables that have positive effects on our
health. There are many types of phytonutrients, and
each one supports our bodies in a different way.
One characteristic shared by many phytonutrients is
a high-antioxidant capacity, which enables these
compounds to defend the body against the damaging
effects of free radicals. A few phytonutrients can
even function as vitamins. To

Ways to Fit Yoga in Everyday
If you follow people who do yoga on
Instagram or Twitter, you've probably seen this
hashtag: #yogaeverydamnday. It's become a kind of
rallying cry, a way for yoga lovers to feel
connected and to affirm their commitment to this
practice. But is it practical for the average
person, especially those who [are] just getting
started? I’m going to say yes, as long as you are
very broad minded about what yoga is. It doesn’t
have to be 90 minutes of intensely physical yoga in
a class setting. It doesn’t have to be a physical
practice at all. Here are 5 ways to have yoga be a
part of every day. To

Broccoli With Ginger, Garlic and Almonds
Raise a Physically Confident
One of our most important jobs as
parents is to build our kids' self-esteem, and that
should extend to physical confidence too. Kids who
are confident in themselves and their abilities will
do better academically, socially, and behaviorally.
Physical confidence, in particular, can mean better
mental and physical health. Even obese and
overweight teens who often face bullying and
discrimination can feel empowered and improve their
self-worth through exercise. To continue reading, click
If you don't currently have a favorite
way to prepare broccoli, look no further. This
versatile Asian broccoli stir fry recipe goes with
almost any meal and is a definite crowd-pleaser. The
trick is to lightly steam the broccoli and then to
stir-fry it in a flavorful sauce. Toasted slivered
almonds sprinkled on at the end give it a nice
- 1 bunch broccoli - cut into florets, stem
peeled and chopped
- 3 tablespoons toasted slivered almonds
- 1 tablespoon cooking oil of your choice
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon dry sherry
- 1 teaspoon equivalent artificial sweetener
- 2 cloves garlic, minced, grated, or pressed
- 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger (see tip)
1) Lightly steam broccoli florets and
chopped stems in a steamer basket placed over a pot
of simmering water, or microwave in a covered
container in a small amount of water for 3 minutes.
The broccoli will turn a bright green.
2) While the broccoli is cooking, toast the almonds.
You can do that in the skillet you're going to use
for the broccoli. Heat the pan over medium heat and
add slivered almonds (you can add a small amount of
oil if you like, but it's not necessary).
Watch them closely as they can
burn quickly. Set the almonds aside in a small bowl
until just before serving.
3) Make the sauce: Whisk together soy sauce, sesame
oil, sherry, and sweetener in a small bowl.
4) Heat the oil in a wok or large skillet over
5) Stir-fry the broccoli in hot oil for 1-2 minutes,
until almost tender. Push to the edges of the pan.
6) Put ginger and garlic in the center of the pan
(add a little more oil if needed), and sauté 30-60
seconds, until fragrant and just lightly browned.
7) Add the sauce to the pan, and mix all the
ingredients including broccoli together with a large
spoon or spatula. Transfer to a serving bowl and
sprinkle with toasted almonds.
