Live a Healthy Life

With all the health and nutrition information out there, it can be confusing to figure out how to choose a balanced, healthy diet.  Why, just this week I read 2 articles (both dated this week) about eggs.  One article told me eggs were not as healthy as the Egg Council claims.  Another article told me that eggs were not as unhealthy as previously thought.  What are we supposed to think?

Well, at the Maud Marks Library, we want to help!  Next Saturday, March 8 at 2 PM, Jan Flewelling, a nurse with Houston Methodist will be here to help straighten out all that information.  She'll be discussing a holistic approach to healthy living including eating right, exercising, and other aspects of living your best life.

On the Shelf: Diabetes & Heart Healthy Cookbook

Healthcare has been a hot-button topic lately. No matter where you stand on the issue, it’s likely you’ve been thinking about it a lot, and, if you’re like me, I imagine you’ve also become more aware of the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise.
