Quote of the Day
Golden Rule Week is observed April 1-7. The Golden Rule is actually a Bible Principle that can be found in several places. Luke 6:31 states "Treat others the same way you want them to treat you".
Even if you do not believe in God, and the Bible, I think that everyone can agree that this is just a great personal rule to live by!
Recipe of the Day or a Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day
The month of April is NATIONAL FOOD MONTH. That leaves it pretty wide open, so our Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day for April 4th, is to learn about Healthy Foods. Healthy foods lead to healthy families!
In a perfect world, we would all go to our nearest local grocer to buy foods that were not treated with hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides, any chemicals, or genetically modified foods. Foods would be healthy food!
