Sisters: A work in progress

posted: 04/10/2014 3:10 a.m. Discuss

I experienced a bit of sadness late last year when I found out that Just Like Mom’s, a Sherwood home-cooking restaurant, had closed. But it was made a little less poignant by the opening of Two Sisters Catering in a lovely free-standing building on Kiehl Avenue.

PRACTICALLY ACTIVE: Hugs an often-neglected component of good health

posted: 04/07/2014 2:37 a.m. Discuss

Most of us have probably heard the phrase “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Well I’m taking that a bit further with my new quotation, “A hug a day keeps the blues away.” Embrace it with me, won’t you?

PRACTICALLY ACTIVE: Season change is a good time to purge cabinets

“Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon.” — Doug Larson Now that we’re a few days into the new season, many of us are all about spring cleaning. We tend to think of that in regard to cleaning house, but I had an email that mentioned it in relation to cleaning out cabinets and refrigerators, a concept many of us should be able to sink our teeth into.

PRACTICALLY ACTIVE: Keeping an eye on vision maladies for diabetics

posted: 03/10/2014 3:12 a.m. Discuss

“No one ever injured his eyesight by looking on the bright side of things.” — Anonymous Over the last few years I’ve noticed my eyesight getting worse. Of course working on a computer for eight hours a day doesn’t help, and we won’t even go into the amount of TV I watch some days.

PRACTICALLY ACTIVE: Blood donations to Red Cross slow to a trickle

posted: 03/03/2014 2:11 a.m. Discuss

Some of you may remember that I wrote about blood donation last year. It’s a topic I’m passionate about and something I’m proud to do for others. It is, after all, hard to be active without enough blood in our bodies.

Wee Betty’s is a good bet

posted: 02/27/2014 3:07 a.m. Discuss

The first time I heard the name Wee Betty’s, I thought it sounded like a good name for a day care or a store selling petite clothing.

PRACTICALLY ACTIVE: Living with either type of diabetes takes work

posted: 02/10/2014 1:07 a.m. Discuss

I have high blood sugar and Type 2 diabetes is not going to kill me. But I just have to eat right, and exercise, and lose weight, and watch what I eat, and I will be fine for the rest of my life.

Gadgets & Gizmos: Breakfast sandwich maker

posted: 01/29/2014 2:57 a.m. Discuss

If you’re a fan of fast-food breakfast sandwiches but want a less expensive, better for-you option, look no further than the Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker.

PRACTICALLY ACTIVE: Sticking to a diet plan’s important on game day

posted: 01/27/2014 2:48 a.m. Discuss

Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks will meet in a fierce battle for football supremacy.

PRACTICALLY ACTIVE: Getting fitness writer, food reviewer on same page

posted: 01/13/2014 2:40 a.m. Discuss

“Don’t look to the people that you respect and expect them to do all the right things. Instead, look to the heart of the people and learn from their mistakes.” — Anastasia Blanchard Hey, folks! I hope your new year is off to a good start. If it’s not, I hope you’re working through your challenges in a healthy way.

Littlefield’s fills breakfast yen

posted: 01/02/2014 3:23 a.m. Discuss

Just off of John F. Kennedy Boulevard in North Little Rock, in the parking lot of the strip center that also houses a Kroger, 10 Fitness and Dollar Tree, sits the little building that could. The place has been home to several restaurants, from Mexican, pizza and burgers to a frozen yogurt shop.

PRACTICALLY ACTIVE: Resolved: Improve lifestyle in the coming year

posted: 12/30/2013 2:58 a.m. Discuss

Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.

SUPERMARKET SLEUTH: Now meatball fans can pick gluten-free

posted: 12/25/2013 1:18 a.m. Discuss

Today is Christmas and I hope those of you who celebrate it are enjoying the day. I also hope Santa was good to you and that your tummies are or soon will be full from a good meal. And maybe there’s even a nap in your future.

SUPERMARKET SLEUTH: Christmas is a time for chocolate flood

posted: 12/18/2013 2:55 a.m. Discuss

Say the words “Christmas candy.” Don’t the words just pleasantly roll off the tongue?

PRACTICALLY ACTIVE: Helping others provides lift for givers as well

posted: 12/16/2013 4 a.m. Discuss

It’s hard to believe that 2013 will soon be coming to a close. It seems like just yesterday we were ringing it in.
