do the chocolate makers influence the news that dark chocolate is healthy?

There’s much debate about attitude and depression, and whether it’s within a person’s control. This Everyday Health article recommends eating certain foods to help alleviate bad moods and crankiness.

Tomorrow, I’ll build on this with a few more simple tactics.

Midlife Eating

An Apple Dumpling A Day....

Eating to boost our brainpower, even at midlife?  Maybe.

Not suggesting any of us – Baby Boomers, Gen-X, Gen-Y or anyone else -should reinvent our eating habits. But maybe we could be a little more focused.

Ever heard the saying, “A little goes a long way?”

Food For Families

Central Florida volunteers gather at a local High School every Thanksgiving Day morning to pick up and deliver boxes of food to needy Families.

Tomorrow will be our tenth year of this Thanksgiving Day family tradition.

A decade ago, and even before Cheryl was pregnant, I suggested to her that we find a way to show our children that we are here to serve and not to be served.

This is a simple, and seemingly insignificant act of kindness influences our thinking, and our actions, all year long.

A Publix Grocery Store Produce manager started Food For Families many years ago.  With help from Central Florida Churches, Schools, and community members, needy Families are identified.

The Central Florida Community also delivers Food for Families on Christmas morning and Easter morning, providing us opportunities to put others first on three special days where we traditionally didn’t.
