Jennifer Aniston’s Workout and Fridge

“Yoga strengthens my muscles and gives me a great sense of peace and calm. It also improves my breathing and centers me. I usually follow yoga with about 40 minutes of cardio – hiking, running or at the gym,” she says.

Mexican food is a favorite, including “tortilla chips, guacamole, and quesadillas with lots of melting cheese.”

“Fish, chicken, hard-boiled eggs, string cheese, apples, Diet Coke and iced tea.”

Kindergarten Lunches Get Failing Grade

“When dietitian Shannon Crocker went into four kindergarten classrooms in two Ontario elementary schools to check the contents of the children’s lunch boxes, she was dismayed by what she found.

“Many were packed with poor food and drink choices such as cold hot dogs, gummy treats, sugary fruit beverages and packaged cookies,” says the Ancaster, Ont., mother of two.

Kindergarten classes were chosen because Ontario began introducing its new Early Learning Program in September, which means thousands of four- and five-year-olds now attend school for a full day.

Crocker adds that many lunches did not provide enough food for the long day the children were at school…..” Click here to read the rest!

Mmmm Cheeses!

From EverydayHealth.com (here!):

Cheese is an important source of calcium and protein in your diet. Calorie-watching diets can include cheese: low-fat cheese or very flavorful varieties in small amounts (you only need a small amount with all powerful flavour).  Include reduced-fat cheeses or lower-fat cheeses of regular versions.

  • Add a thin slice of almost any variety of semi-soft cheese to apple slices.
  • Create a roll-up of deli sliced turkey breast and cheese.
  • Top whole-grain bruschetta with freshly diced tomatoes and a sprinkle of Parmigiano-Reggiano.
  • Mix fat-free cream cheese with a can of salmon and a dash or two of smoke flavor.
  • Top a sweet potato with low-fat cottage cheese and steamed broccoli.
  • Pair gorgonzola with dried figs, apricots, and pears.
  • Top a bowl of berries with small slices of Brie.

Cheeses to try:

  • Fresh cheeses. Spano says these include cheeses that contain some whey and have a short shelf life. “Cottage cheese, ricotta, cream cheese, mascarpone, and mozzarella are all fresh cheeses. Fresh cheeses are soft and creamy,” she explains.
  • Semi-soft cheeses. In this category are the gourmet cheeses Brie and Camembert, as well as processed cheese brands like Laughing Cow. These cheeses are usually pale in color and can be easily sliced. Some semi-soft cheeses are flavored with dried vegetables or spices. Other examples include Monterey jack and muenster.
  • Hard cheeses. Also known as aged cheeses, this group includes Parmigiano-Reggiano, asiago, and gruyere. These cheeses are hard to the touch because most of the moisture has been removed. This makes them good for grating and gives them a long shelf-life. Most of these cheeses have intense flavors.
  • Washed-rind cheeses. Washed-rind cheeses include Tallegio and limburger. They are bathed in salted water, brandy, wine, or liquor. “Washing develops a strong flavor, retains moisture, and changes the color and texture of the cheese,” says Spano. The exterior of washed-rind cheese may be bright orange or brown; the interior is often soft and pungent.
  • Blue cheese. These cheeses are also called blue-veined cheeses, markings that make them easy to recognize. The color comes from the blue mold that gives these cheeses their very strong flavor. Blue cheeses include gorgonzola, Danish blue cheese, and Roquefort. Blue cheeses crumble easily, making them ideal to use in salads.
  • Processed cheese. The term processed is used to describe cheeses that are a combination of natural cheese and ingredients like emulsifiers or artificial flavors that increase shelf-life. Examples are American cheese and processed cheese spreads
