Comments Off on Gumbo: The Southern Comfort Food

For some, the changing of the leaves from green to vibrant splashes of red and yellow means the New England Patriots preparing to do battle against any and all challengers. For me, this season means anticipating the CBS Fall TV lineup, since my son Rob will be appearing in the new series “NCIS: New Orleans”, airing September 23rd. I have visited New Orleans several times and during these visits I have always tried to take a cooking class or two. So in honor of my son, I would...

Comments Off on Things I’d Tell My 50-Something Self: #2 Health is Everything

“Martha: Throughout the 90’s and for most of your life, you considered yourself invulnerable. Good genes, basically excellent health, with a physical education teacher Mom whose solution to every problem was to “go for a run” or “play a set of tennis.” You thought your body would last forever.

Comments Off on Can You Lose Weight With Yoga?

When we are feeling...

Comments Off on Exercise is Key After 40

Once I hit 40, my metabolism stopped. I was no longer able to lose 5 pounds in a week by just eating salads and gone were the days where I could just exercise a few days a week and drop those unwanted pounds. With kids and a job, exercise is harder to fit in. On top of that, my 40’s brought with them a series of injuries that I am trying to work around. I soon figured out that I had to work smarter, not harder to meet my fitness goals. It’s obvious to anyone over 40...
