Dear Valued Subscriber,

Have a happy, healthy week. Bonnie and Steve Minsky


Make It Better For Your Children

grandkidsThe greatest gift we can give our children is to assure that they will be healthier than the generation that came before them. If public health experts are correct, this will not be the case for children today. At this time, children have never been more at risk for diabetes, obesity, and myriad other chronic diseases. Is this what we truly want for our children? I don't think so.


Of all the incredible improvements I see in my clients, none are more rewarding then when a child gets well. Implementing a "healing from the inside out approach" takes a tremendous amount of hard and thankless work, as well as the intestinal fortitude to say "no." Aside from being overwhelmed initially, friction in family, work, and social circles does not make succeeding any easier. While providing future savings, it is certainly not the cheapest route either. However, this approach is unquestionably the most effective.


I have made it my life's work to provide the necessary tools for my family, friends, coworkers, and clients to have every opportunity to achieve the quality of life they deserve. Surely, there are no quick fixes. Many forces have and will continue to work against this approach. However, the tools to make a generational change are available to you. Whether by baby steps or huge strides, make the commitment to assure that your children and grandchildren do not just live longer, but enjoy a better quality of life.


Sincerely, Bonnie


Raise Your Dining Out IQ
96% of main entrees sold at top US chain eateries exceed daily limits for calories, sodium, fat and saturated fat, according to a study funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and conducted by the Rand Corporation. It examined the nutritional content of 30,923 menu items from 245 restaurant brands across the USA.


The study found that appetizers averaged 813 calories, compared with main entrees, which averaged 674 calories per serving. Family restaurants fared worse than fast-food. Many drinks offered on kids' menus have more fat and saturated fat on average than regular drinks. 


Quick Tips to Raise Your Restaurant IQ:  

  1. Drink only water, tea, or black coffee. Limit adult beverages to one maximum.
  2. Tell your server right when you sit down that you do not want bread or bread products brought to the table. That way, you avoid the temptation.
  3. Skip appetizers, salads, soups, and go directly to ordering the entree.
  4. Replace any grain side dish with a vegetable dish. Two vegetable dishes with lean protein are ideal. Make sure the vegetables are not cooked in butter or heavy oil.
  5. Try to avoid any heavy sauces on your entree.
  6. Eliminate dessert unless fruit.
  7. If you order a salad for your entree, ask for the dressing on the side (try to stick to a real vinaigrette). Eliminate any grain carbs (croutons, pita chips, etc.), include lean protein, and fruit is okay.
  8. Stay home. You can better control what you eat.
