I met with an athlete this week who leans heavily on sugar for boosts of energy throughout the day. It made me think about how in this season of sweet treats, many of us experience the same roller coaster highs and lows due to the abundance of confectioneries we are exposed to with holiday parties, baked good gifts, cookie baking marathons and candy canes at every turn.
If you go through the next 6 weeks unconsciously picking up every cookie, candy and piece of pie that lands in your path ... Read More

Washington Redskins fans, your team is officially red hot.
The Redskins used a strong second-half effort all around to defeat the visiting New York Giants, 17-16, last night in a nationally-televised, Monday Night Football battle at FedExField.
With the win, Washington moves to an even 6-6 on the year and has won three straight games – all against divisional opponents (Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys and the Giants).
Last night’s game was the perfect example of how letting a team stick around can come back to bite you in the end. The Giants – who lead the NFC East Division ... Read More

We at Dinner Matters hope you had a fun and flavorful Thanksgiving! It's always hard during the holidays to watch everything you eat, and it's especially hard on Thanksgiving Day. If you're like us, you probably enjoyed a bit too much turkey, a bit too much stuffing, and more than a bit too much pumpkin pie.
Getting back to healthy eating doesn't have to mean a letdown in taste though. Our Grilled Rosemary, Garlic & Lemon Chicken is a delicious dish that is simple to make and won't add inches to ... Read More

To understand the restaurant landscape in a region as diverse as Northern Virginia, is to appreciate the beauty of dichotomy. Dinner in farm country possesses all the sophistication as a meal inside the Beltway and a restaurant in Arlington deliberately creates a farmhouse aesthetic.
Wherever the highway unfolds, food rules.
Restaurants on this list put forth dishes that are, of course, wonderful and in line with the tenets of modern dining: seasonal and ingredient-focused. Value and atmosphere also contributed to rank. But it still came down to the food.

The Washington Redskins gave their fans plenty for which to be thankful over the past few days.
Washington went into Dallas on Thursday and defeated its rival Cowboys 38-31 in a nationally-televised, Thanksgiving Day game. It was the second straight win for the Redskins (5-6), who are still in the hunt for a playoff spot as the season winds down.
The first half of Thursday’s game against the Cowboys (5-6) couldn’t have gone much better. Dallas turned the ball over two times – a lost fumble and an interception – and the Washington offense was clicking on all ... Read More

Jammal Brown has spent all of the preseason and regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list. Brown attempted to practice earlier this month so that coaches could evaluate his performance since suffering from a hip injury, a torn ligamentum teres, that occurred during Training Camp. The right tackle underwent a hip arthroscopic procedure called arthroscopic debridement surgery at the beginning of the season, read more on the procedure below from Commonwealth Orthopaedics.
