Do you have a food item that whenever you hear the name, see it in the store or advertisement say to yourself, “I really need to eat more of that."
For me, that is a vegetable called kale.
What a surprise it was when I opened my morning paper last week and saw the article Kale: Yes, it’s good for you, but don’t overdo it by Carolyn Butler (Washington Post 9/25/12). Was this a hint?
As a Registered Dietitian, I have been taught from my early ... Read More

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is essentially a pinched nerve in the wrist. It is the most common nerve problem in the upper extremity. Women are affected more frequently than men. The cause of carpal tunnel syndrome is compression of the median nerve in the wrist. The median nerve is the nerve that supplies sensation to the thumb, index, middle and half of the ring finger.
Certain medical conditions such as diabetes, hypothyroidism and pregnancy predispose patients to developing carpal tunnel syndrome. Although it has been extensively researched, there has never been any solid evidence linking heavy ... Read More

Last week, we talked about renewing, reorganizing and re-prioritizing our fitness lives. This week, I want to focus on what to do during that time you scheduled for yourself!
Enter: Tabata training. Once you stick with it and see results you will thank me, trust me.
What is Tabata training?
Tabata training is an interval training protocol that only lasts four minutes but creates huge EPOC – excess post oxygen consumption, which means your body continues to burn calories well after the workout is over. The timing of tabata offers negative ... Read More

The Washington Redskins put forth a solid effort against one of the best teams in the NFL in the Atlanta Falcons yesterday at FedExField, but in the end they fell just short, as the Redskins lost 24-17 in their second home game of the season.
The Falcons (5-0) came into the game with the third-best scoring offense in the league, led by MVP candidate and quarterback Matt Ryan and his trio of talented receivers in Roddy White, Julio Jones and tight end Tony Gonzalez.
But the Redskins’ defense was able to keep up with that potent Falcons offense ... Read More

What does Oktoberfest have to do with a wedding? Everything. History buff, beer aficionado and Munich Oktoberfest survivor (and my friend) Hope Flanagan laymanizes the origins of the holiday.
“For one thing, it actually mostly takes place in September despite the name.” This year’s Oktoberfest runs from September 22-October 7. Annually, millions of people descend upon Munich for Oktoberfest, making it the one of the largest festival in the world.
Oktoberfest origins were cultivated from more than drunken merriment. Before there was the celebration of beer and bratwurst, there was the celebration of love. “Back in 1810, Prince Ludwig ... Read More

The Washington Redskins headed into yesterday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers desperate for a win, and that’s exactly what they got. Although it wasn’t a perfect performance by any means, the Redskins pulled out a last-second, 24-22 victory over the Bucs at Raymond James Stadium in Florida.
Things were going very smoothly for the Redskins coming out of halftime. They led 21-6 and were dominant both offensively and defensively against the Buccaneers. But the hometown team just wouldn’t go away, and turned in several huge second-half plays to score 16 unanswered points and take a ... Read More
