Fatigue: Facts and Fiction

Everyone experiences fatigue at some point, but according to sleep expert Shiraz Daud, MD, ongoing fatigue may indicate a more serious problem. “A major myth about fatigue is that it’s normal and just related to a busy lifestyle,” said Dr. Daud, a pulmonologist at Missouri Baptist Medical Center and fellowship-trained sleep medicine specialist. “In reality, fatigue can signal medical problems.”
Stress.  It’s something everybody has, and it can be difficult to avoid. How we deal with stress affects our happiness and our overall health.  At times, seeing a counselor may be helpful or even sometimes medication may be indicated, but almost always, a lifestyle change will help. One such option includes a routine exercise program.

Perfect Sides to Any Summer Dish

Perfect Sides to Any Summer Dish

Kale is all the rage! Think outside the salad bowl and roast a batch of kale as “chips” – perfect to serve in place of traditional potato chips.  Because these kale “chips” are baked instead of fried, you’ll save calories and fat grams – plus dish up a dose of antioxidants key to your good health!

Carrot “chips” add a burst of bright color and nearly “sweet” flavor to snack time or as a side to your luncheon sandwich! Choose extra-large carrots for the simplest way to shave into strips.
