  • The Last Summer Recipe: White Bean Stew

    by Paula Gallagher | September 21, 2016

    white-beansThe last day of this glorious summer. It's not easy saying goodbye to peaches, zucchini, tomatoes, corn and berries... oh, and the basil, glorious basil. It has been such an abundant growing season around these parts and I'm not sure I'm ready for the squashes, kale and turnips just yet.

    This recipe combines beans, tomatoes and basil to make a simple stew that still tastes like summer, but keeps you warm when the nights get cooler. My suggestion is to use all fresh ingredients. If you don't grow them, head to your farmers' market to take advantage of the last of this summer's fare. Read more

  • Two Important Tests for GI Health Offered Through Village Green

    by Margo Gladding | September 20, 2016

    gi-health-2As a nutritionist, I answer a lot of questions about a variety of different health challenges. But, the body system that seems to bring the most people to Village Green searching for natural solutions is the digestive system. Uncomfortable symptoms such as indigestion, abdominal pain, heartburn, gas, bloating, constipation, and diarrhea can be debilitating. And, many of the over-the-counter and prescription medications can act as bandaids and do not fix the underlying issues.

    More and more evidence is showing that GI function and the gut microbiome are critical for optimal health and play a role in so many conditions including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, mood disorders, autoimmune diseases and autism. Therefore, in my opinion, healing the digestive system truly is the place to start when dealing with any health concern, not just GI complaints. Tests for GI health can be very useful. Read more

  • Be Active With Your Family

    by Paula Gallagher | September 19, 2016

    skating-familiesAre you active with your family? Consider this. My kids are in a lot of activities! A LOT! Hockey, swimming, lacrosse and soccer, to name a few. They love trying new sports and being active. My husband coaches and I usually cheer from the sidelines, or just drop off to get the other kid to the other activity.

    And although we often go on Sunday night walks or bike rides together, I was starting to feel left out of the sports conversation. I was a bystander. So this weekend, I decided at the age of 41, to stop being a bystander and join a hockey team. Channeling one of Oprah's sayings... if not now, when? Read more

  • Mangoes Can Help Prevent Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes

    by Paula Gallagher | September 14, 2016

    mangoesNew research from Oklahoma State University published in the Journal of Nutrition has found that eating mangoes can help prevent or decrease the development of obesity and type 2 diabetes. Eating mangoes can also prevent the loss of beneficial gut bacteria that comes from a high-fat diet.

    Obesity and high-fat diets are associated with the development of many chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes and heart disease. And although there are many drugs prescribed to treat these diseases by lowering blood glucose and lipids, medications can have serious side effects.

  • What You Are Feeling is What We Are Seeing

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | September 13, 2016

    mirrorWe are what we feel. If you feel overweight, unattractive or ill-equipped in some way, take a look at the way you dress, the way you carry yourself, what you do (or don’t do), and the relationships you have. Notice that what you are feeling shows itself in the clothes you choose, the opportunities you may be avoiding, and what you’re willing to tolerate in a coworker, friend or partner.

    Where did these feelings come from and are they worth taking a look at?
