30 May, 2017

If you asked baby boomers what the most pivotal aspect of retirement planning was, most would say financial stability and an affordable home. Whether it’s aging in place, choosing a destination near family, or living it up in an active lifestyle community, buyers want a home for the long term, and that means considering how that home will work for them in the future. Retiring should be all about fulfilling dreams, and embarking on this adventure called life. Keep it affordable with some savvy ...read more

What’s On the Outside Counts For Homebuyers

30 May, 2017

When exploring their home options, most baby boomers would agree the common denominator in finding the perfect sanctuary is an outdoor oasis. Before checking out the master suite, many potential buyers head straight for the backyard to see if they’ll have space for entertaining, a fenced area for the dog, and a lush lawn for stargazing. Notorious for fabulous year-round weather, destinations like Florida, California, and Arizona are where the demand for outdoor entertaining is practically a re...read more

Is going vegetarian healthy?

28 May, 2015


Any vegan or vegetarian will tell you that the number one question they're asked is where they get their protein?  It's almost perplexing to some that getting adequate nutrition from a plant based diet is even possible! Well balanced meals that forego the meat are actually proven to provide the nutrients necessary for energy, and maintaining optimal health without the burden of cholesterol or saturated fats.

Meatless Monday has become quite a trend and a ve...read more

Getting fresh with herbs

19 May, 2015


It's easy to get stuck in a flavor rut when it comes to cooking with herbs.  You buy cilantro for taco night, and what doesn't get used sits in the fridge until it wilts.  Sound familiar?  Herbs add a fresh flavor to slow cooked dishes, and even cocktails.

Experiment with different herb/food pairings to discover your favorites! Here are some that I find most commonly available, and that are easy to mix and match.

Conquer your sweet tooth!

19 May, 2015


On average, Americans consume about 130 pounds of the sweet stuff each year.  Sugar is EVERYWHERE. Check any label at the grocery store and you'll find it in everything from ketchup to lunch meat. Sugar releases the feel good chemical dopamine into the brain, so it's no wonder in our high stress world that so many reach for sweet solace.  Did you know that research has likened the addiction to sugar to that of cocaine? I'm not saying quit sugar all together, but...read more

Sun Safety!

11 May, 2015


It's encouraged to spend time soaking up some good old vitamin D, but take precautions before heading outside.  Aging skin loses elasticity making it  more sensitive to UVA and UVB rays.  People think there's no danger as long as they avoid sunburn, but according to the American Cancer Society, they are still at risk for skin cancer.  Did you know that even on a cloudy day 80% of UV rays can still pass through?  Pull up a poolside chair with these tip...read more

Coping with Jet Lag

04 May, 2015


Traveling is rewarding, but we've all experienced the dreaded jet lag.  You've crossed time zones and suddenly your entire internal clock is off kilter. If traveling by plane, it's likely you haven't slept much if at all, not to mention your diet being sabotaged by airplane food. Whether coming or going, it can feel like you're in a haze and often the first inclination is to crawl under the covers to sleep it off.

Juicing is not just a trend!

04 May, 2015


Juicing is much more than a health craze.  It's a way of infusing the body with a wealth of nutrients without taking a handful of supplements. It is also an easy way to get our recommended  9 + servings each day which to be honest, can be difficult sometimes.  Fruits and vegetables are most beneficial in their raw living form because they retain the nutrition often lost during the cooking process.  The beauty of juicing especially for seniors is that the vitam...read more
