It’s Coming Together…

I was pleasantly intrigued to receive an email from the manager of a restaurant, at which I eat fairly often and enjoy very much, to review the menu with him and the chef, to support their intention of serving healthful, delicious meals that cater to a variety of food preferences. This was on my mind as I tuned in to NPR this morning and caught a wonderful story about Meatless Monday. Check out that link! On my mind too, was the recent headline that 1 MILLION pounds of beef has been recalled for E. Coli contamination.

It’s no surprise that factory raised beef had to be recalled–again–or that millions of Americans are understanding the benefits of Meatless Monday from an environmental and health perspective, or that restaurants across the country are enhancing their entrees with fresh veggies, either grilled or quick sauteed, and groovy grain side dishes. A heightened awareness is burgeoning all around us. It’s coming together…

How is real food showing up in your life?

"After thirty years of eating healthy foods and participating in regular, vigorous exercise, I was astounded to discover I have Coronary Artery Disease. In March of 2010, I had two stents placed in my Left Anterior Descending Artery- this was big. I consulted Robin Mallery, RN, knowing she is a local expert on Cardiac Rehabilitation. I especially respected her lifestyle of nutrition and physical fitness. Robin’s reassurance that I was doing many things correctly, and her instructions on how to fine-tune my program to deal with this life-threatening disease, was invaluable. Robin’s exquisite grasp of balancing traditional medicine with diet, exercise, relaxation and fun has helped me through this medical crisis". --Maiya Gralia, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and cross-country ski instructor and coach
