Good evening, everybody! Hope you had a terrific Easter weekend, and got to spend some time with loved ones. My only complaint was it went by too quickly! There's some interesting health and nutrition news on the web today, and we'll be looking at several lists. The first list  of the day features the "Fattest Cities in America" as compiled by Wallethub. The bad news? The vast majority of the fattest cities are located in the Southeast. The worse news? Tennessee has 4 metro areas in the top 14, with Memphis at 1, Chattanooga at 6, Knoxville at 12, and...

Good evening folks! Got some interesting articles to cover in tonight's blog, including a look at the Healthy Food Choices Act being introduced by our local Representative, Dr. Phil Roe, what the 2X3+1 rule is, and what percentage of Americans live a "healthy" lifestyle.

With it being reintroduced, I guess it previously died in committee or was voted down, probably due to some snack and soda lobbyists.

Good evening, folks! Getting a little later start than usual, as I once again got a round of disc golf in this evening. It's a great sport if you're looking for something less intense than running, and some of the courses are rather nice to look at! You can play a round in approximately an hour and a half, and probably walk 2-3 miles, depending on the course. If you want a website that can tell you more about courses near you, try Disc Golf Course Review. Follow that link, and you can learn which courses are nearby, as well...

Good afternoon, hope everyone's weekend is off to a great start! We're a day later than usual with today's blog, as I decided to do something healthy yesterday evening and played 9 holes of disc golf! With the improving weather, it's getting harder to make excuses to not exercise! That said, on to our first article for today. This article gives some tips on substituting in flours made from "pulses" for regular flour. A "pulse" is a category that includes beans, chickpeas, green peas, etc. While pulse flours might not be familiar to you, they're a staple of gluten-free bakers....
