Don’t squash using imagination with veggies

Health & Fitness Columnist

I find it hard to believe that I am writing the August column. I feel like I just started to write about all the yummy and healthy fresh produce that can be found in the summer months in Georgia and now we are embarking upon the end of the summer.

Prepare fresh veggies the healthy way

Health & Fitness columnist

Well, June is gone and now July is upon us and, as we live in Southern Georgia, we all know that is only going to get hotter and more humid as the days of summer go on. Therefore, I highly recommend trying one of the smoothie recipes I provided you all with in June. If you missed the issue, you can always go online to the Herald website to find the recipes in the past issues/columns section.

Summer snacks can be healthy as well as tasty

Health & Fitness Columnist

Well, believe it or not summer is here. I am sure you are asking yourself, how in the world did June get here so quickly? Over the next few months I am going to write about all the fresh, yummy and healthy produce that is available to us in Southwest Georgia over the summer (and fall and spring, too).

Kids benefit from playing team sports

Health & Fitness column

Spring and summer bring many opportunities for kids to participate in sports and other activities that promote and encourage exercise and being active, along with team work.

It’s March and that means spring break!

Health & Fitness column

I know it is hard to believe that it is that time of the year again; we are getting ready to turn our clocks ahead (next weekend) and spring break is just around the corner. That leaves us with the question: What to do for spring break that will not only keep the kids busy, but give them something fun and healthy to do?

Keep up the good work: Sticking with the changes

Health & fitness column

Yes, it has been about four weeks since you sat down and made those New Year’s resolutions and the big question is: Are you still adhering to them?

Are you ready for some healthy changes?

It is that time of year when we all start to ask ourselves: What will my New Year’s resolution be this year?

Holidays are the perfect time to get physical

Health & Fitness column

Again this month, let me remind you about the great benefits of getting your annual flu shot. Not only will you be protected against the flu, but you will also protect those around you.

Find balance for a healthy holiday season

Before I provide you with valuable tips and ideas on how to have a healthy (and not overindulge) holiday season. I want to give you a friendly reminder to get your annual flu shot. I just went through the “ordeal” of getting my three kids (ages 5, 5, and 2) their shots, so the “sting” is fresh in my mind.

Yes, you can have a “healthy” Halloween

It is hard to believe that October is upon us and Halloween is right around the corner. Living in Southwest Georgia usually means there are plenty of warm days still ahead of us and plenty of time for outside play and fun Halloween activities.

Keep kids physically active on the weekends

It’s inevitable. Saturday morning rolls around and everyone looks at each other and asks, What are we going to do today?

Make a healthy transition back to school

Wow! Where did the summer go? It seems that each year May rolls around, school is out and our schedules go by the wayside. Then all of a sudden (much too fast for many and not fast enough for others), we turn around and it is time to go back to school and attempt to get the kids back on schedule
