According to the University of Illinois, there are approximately 350 million Christmas trees growing on U.S. farms. Last year, 30.8 million of these live trees were purchased at an average price of $34.87.
So what do all these numbers mean? Well, not too much, other than to show the evergreen business—like its name—is a booming one. And Virginia just so happens to be one of the top Christmas tree-producing states. Check out this list of NoVA tree farms where you can find and cut your own Christmas tree at www.NorthernVirginiaMag.com!

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

If your fingernails are significantly shorter than they were at this time yesterday, then you’re not alone.
The Washington Redskins overcame the adversity of both losing their starting quarterback to injury and an eight-point deficit late in Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens to pull off a 31-28 overtime win at FedExField. 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

To the dismay of many, Brian Orakpo has been recovering from a torn pectoral muscle for much of the 2012 season. The Redskins star outside linebacker tore his left pectoral during a game against the St. Louis Rams in Week 2 of the regular season. Orakpo's 2011 season was cut short with a similar injury as well.
The pectoralis (pec) muscles are large, highly visible muscles located on each side of the chest. The pectoralis major is a thick, fan-shaped muscle, situated at the chest (anterior) of the human body. It makes up the bulk of the ... Read More

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.
