A good friend of mine who happens to be a kick ass triathelete, ultra-maranother, and marathoner (slacker), turned me on to Generation UCan for fuel during my training runs and marathons. This friend is so fast and knowledgeable that whenever *she* tells you to do something, you do it.
This friend gave me a care package for one of my recent marathons, and it had everything a marathoner would want or need; water bottles, sleeves, gu blocks, and lots of UCan packages. As always, such a sweet and loving friend, thank you!
Currently on a granola bar kick (as witnessed a couple weeks ago here), here is my latest granola bar obsession: Lola Bars. Yes, I am on a roll with granola bars!
Now that it is August, it’s the perfect time to finish the summer on a good note with some nutritional advice from the lovely and talented, Dr. Jana Klauer. Featured on JGB twice before (last summer and early 2013), Dr. Klauer continues to motivate, inspire, and educate all of us. So, thank you Dr. Klauer for sharing more wisdom and science, and helping us commit to a healthy and active lifestyle!
The ever so beautiful and smart, Dr. Jana Klauer!
Back in July, I had the opportunity to talk with physician, author, and top-selling nutritionist Dr. Jana Klauer and share her health advice with all of you. She was such a hit and so informative, that I sat down with her again to find out answers to more of my burning questions! Here they are!
Question: What are your suggestions on how to create a healthy lifestyle within a family?
It all used to be so simple. The family sat down for dinner together, ate a wholesome home-cooked meal. No ordering out or eating fast foods. This is the way it was before both mom an dad worked. Now moms struggle with finding balance between work and home responsibilities. Today there are not enough hours in the day! So what to do?
Many of us feel this way. Balancing is tough! (picture courtesy abbyofftherecord.com)
