This Week's Healthy Headlines


Looks like I will be taking the dog for a walk this afternoon, if we don't get rained on!! Don't feel like the gym today :) Report
Thanks SP ! I'm just getting started with wieght watchers (well a month now) and
eating healthy and finding different foods with low point values is still new to me.
So thank you for the "No guilt food finds and staples." Report
The Lunchbox arrticle is good as my daughter is going into 1st grade so this will be the first year she takes lunches.

I also liked the backpack article for me as I wear one on my walk to work with my luich, book, etc. Helpful on length of fitting. Report
I'm reading Judith Beck, PhD's "The BECK Diet Solution" and she talks about knowing when you are full and even if you aren't (since your stomach can be over stretched from years of eating too much), that when you PLAN what you are having and you eat only that amount, you WILL learn to deal with hunger. Her book is so worth reading. Report
The article about backpacks made me look because I carry my stuff (camera, pens, papers, notebooks, makeup, and sometimes my laptop, etc) around in a backpack from L.L. Bean. This was oriented toward backpacks for kids going to school, and it didn't really have any information I didn't already know.

The article about "(No-Guilt Food Finds ...) was interesting to me because I'm on a very low-sodium diet for hypertension. However, nearly all the foods mentioned have very or relatively high levels of sodium, so would cause me high guilt levels if I included them in my diet. Natural does not mean healthy for us to eat! Report
Do you know when your full? Great article. Report
Another great group of articles! I really enjoyed the one about packing healthier lunches, even if it was actually a little short on actual menus. Oh well, just room for creativity and planning on my part! Report
Cucumber salad sounds great, I have the ingredients so will be making this today! Report
can't wait to make the cucumber salad. I've never had Greek Yogurt. Can I use plain if I don't want to venture out into the unknown? Report
ROBERTAN1 - I'm sorry you are having trouble with that article, but I haven't been able to replicate that error message. I do know that is a safe site, Report
I was warned against the whole grains website by my PC security software--said that their tests showed that the website tried to make unauthorized changes to the test PC. Thought you should know. I didn't proceed onto the site. Report
Another great round-up. Thanks for doing these! Report
The article about fruit roll ups was pretty interesting. I am always on the look-out for a healthy snack. Report
Several good stories. I loved the school lunch article. I had to email it to myself to save it. My oldest is off to K on Tuesday so I'm new to the packing a lunch thing. I want to give her a healthy variety. Report

Was interested in the fruit roll ups and knowing if you are full. Report
