Recipe of the Day or a
Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day


The Month of October is Stress Awareness Month!

Stress is a constant for many of you because you live in a world full of stress. Stress about money, marriage, job security, health issues, your kids, your parents, relationships or many other issues cause you to feel overwhelmed.

The Month of October is Stress Awareness Month!

How each of you deals with stress is a personal choice. You can choose to deal with it in a positive or negative way. Emotional eating is the negative way many of you cope with feelings tied to stress. Knowing what causes you to turn to food in stressful times is a key factor in preventing emotional eating. It is important to learn your eating triggers and develop positive stress busters that do not involve eating, as well as healthy diet habits
