The smell of a freshly cut grapefruit immediately takes me back to cold winter mornings growing up. My parents shared a grapefruit every morning with their breakfast. I realize now why “winter” is the season of this memory; winter is when citrus fruit is at its peak season.
Citrus as a winter fruit is another example of Mother Nature’s perfect timing!

The Redskins were in last place in the NFC East and their chances of even sniffing a playoff spot had almost dwindled completely.
But five wins later – including Sunday’s 38-21 win over the Cleveland Browns – Washington finds itself leading the NFC East Division, and at 8-6, controls its own destiny to make the postseason.
Though the final score of the Browns game ... Read More

We’ve all heard the statistics about holiday weight gain. Americans can gain between 5-7 pounds from Thanksgiving to New Years. During this time of year, I tell my clients to try to maintain their weight and fitness level. No extreme dieting or marathon workouts. As the saying goes, “You can’t out exercise a bad diet”. As our schedules get busy and our family obligations take over our lives, I thought I’d offer you an option to squeeze in some exercise. It’s called the 2012 LUNGE CHALLENGE ... Read More

It was the Redskins’ fourth straight win, and gives the team a 7-6 record on the year.
The Redskins seemed dead in the water late in the fourth quarter of yesterday’s game, but quarterback Robert Griffin III and the Washington offense took the ... Read More
