A Matter of Time DownloadHere’s a recent article I wrote for Attorney at Work, a great blog. The article, like the blog, is geared toward lawyers, but the tips are helpful to anyone who is busy and trying to figure out how to make it all work! The article is part of their quarterly download, which is a really great e-zine. This one is called A Matter of Time. I hope you enjoy it!

I thought this article was helpful and contained some great tips on nutrition to help ward off cold & flu this season. It’s at Scholastic magazine and lists superfoods, including (my favorite) sweet potato, salmon, broccoli, milk, oatmeal, and more.

“Healthier” Chicken Pot Pie

As I look at the nearly five inches of snow outside my window (it’s not even winter yet!), I am thinking about warm, yummy, comfort food. And I saw these recipes at the Eating Well blogs for “healthier” (it’s all relative) chicken pot pie. I think I’ll try the biscuit-topped recipe first, assuming we don’t lose our power again (like last week during Superstorm Sandy).

Woman Holding Cup of Water and LemonA friend recently reminded me of a great home remedy for a cold or flu, particularly one that has you feeling phlegmy. This great home remedy, made from things you likely have in your pantry, really does work. Read about it here. The key ingredients are vinegar, honey, and lemon, plus a few other things. If you can’t stomach the vinegar, ramp up the lemon and add some cayenne. It will definintely still help! Be well!

I really like the Eating Well blogs; I always find helpful information there and I almost always agree with the advice. Today is no exception. Brierley Wright has a great article on chronic inflammation, what it is and how to avoid it. All the tips are simple changes to your diet and guidance for an exercise regime. Her ten ways to beat inflammation are:

  1. Increase Omega-3 fatty acids and reduce Omega-6 (i.e. add salmon and olive oil to your diet)
  2. Practice yoga.
  3. Consume soy.
  4. Get a massage.
  5. Limit trans-fats and saturated fats.
  6. Eat green leafy vegetables.
  7. Keep stress at bay.
  8. Sleep at least 6 hours each night.
  9. Exercise often.
  10. Drink green tea.

We are going on vacation today to next Thursday, so I won’t be around for blogging. I’m not taking my computer and have decided to be (mostly) disconnected during our time away. It’s only sun and fun for me and my family. This time for rest and relaxation will also be a time of rejuvenation. As I’ve said before, it is important for us to remember to find time for downtime. Here’s some of my favorite posts on the benefits of rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation:
