Spring is peeking its head in, and after a cruel winter of wearing big brawny snow boots, it's almost time to trade in stout for stilettos.
Here is celebrity and Nike trainer, Deanna Jefferson's, tips for strengthening your legs to walk with your head high in high heels.

After being a part of the Redskins Kids Club Combine on Saturday, I felt moved to create a smoothie that both kids and parents would love, but was also super-healthy for our bodies.
Unlike most traditional banana breads, this smoothie won’t weigh you down. It’s packed full of electrolytes and potassium. It also feeds the body magnesium, vitamin E & C. These nutrients make it an excellent post-workout snack or mini-meal.
1 banana, very ripe
1 cup coconut water
1 cup ice

I love anything with oats. So one day I set out to make a healthy granola bar. But, my impatience got the best of me and I tried to cut and eat them before they cooled. Although it wasn’t one of my proudest culinary moments, it turned into something fantastic –an addictive chunky granola. Although this recipe calls for gluten-free oats, you can replace them for the regular variety!
4 1/2 cups gluten-free whole oats
1/2 unsweetened shaved coconut
1/3 cup ... Read More
