For the second time since turning 50, Sheila competed in perhaps the most grueling physical challenge in sport. This time it was the Ironman Louisville on August 25th 2013.

Below Sheila shares her story and what she learned from this amazing accomplishment!

Just because a dish is made with extra virgin olive oil doesn't make it healthy. Olive oil is still fattening (it contains 2,000 calories per cup). Canola oil has a similar nutritional profile and some products that tout it, like Weaver's gold popcorn which hit shelves last April, still hide hydrogenated oil (trans fats) in the ingredient list. "While olive oil is definitely a good alternative to butter, margarine or shortening, it...

10. Artisan
Shoppers are more interested than ever in knowing where their food comes from and 83% say food traditions are important. When a food is made with care, it means the ingredients are high-quality, which makes it healthy, right? Not necessarily.

In a recent study, participants who were asked to compare...

With Christmas less than two weeks away, the inevitable holiday parties and celebrations are upon us. Some might think that a holiday party is not the place to focus on health; they think it is okay to "let loose" at this time of year. And while there is some truth to that, the focus of the holidays should not be the high calorie desserts or greasy finger foods; it should be the people you love, the conversations and the dancing. It is possible to throw a healthy holiday party...
