When my wife and I became parents, we felt very motivated to create an active lifestyle for our family. We spent lots of time outside, on walks, and at the park with our son. Biking didn’t enter the picture until a friend told us how much she and her toddler enjoyed biking together. We started biking regularly and were hooked! I will write more about successful family biking in the future; this post will focus on Fort Collins bike commuting.
Location, location, location
It took planning and a couple years for me to start bike commuting. The biggest step was to move somewhere more bike-friendly (Chicago didn’t cut it for me). Fort Collins is an official “Bike Friendly City,” a certification awarded by The League of American Bicyclists. Fort Collins is continually striving for a better bike infrastructure, specifically a low-stress network by 2020.
You have probably heard that antiperspirants have been linked to illnesses like cancer and Alzheimer’s. (The research is limited because the FDA does not require that personal care products are proven safe to be on the market.) If the initial studies concern you, you may have been wondering if there are any great alternatives.
If you like bold flavors, this recipe is for you. The blue cheese, balsamic, and sun dried tomatoes might make you feel like you have been transported to a restaurant in Europe. As they would say in Spain, que rica! (I have never been, so I live vicariously through my wife who studied abroad in Spain.)
My recipe below is a twist on a recipe from Wendy Polisi. I have tried a few of Wendy’s recipes and they were all unique and excellent. Wendy started a website all about cooking quinoa, but she now has all sorts of recipes and articles. I highly recommend her recipes, especially if you love quinoa. (And if you don’t love quinoa yet, her recipes will fix that.)
In college I read The Mist by Stephen King. The small town of Bridgton, Maine is suddenly enveloped in an unnatural fog that conceals some very scary monsters. It is a fun read.
In my practice, I see many patients who complain of brain fog (mental confusion and spaciness) along with their musculoskeletal issues. They are often eating healthy diets and exercising, but still the fog remains. Brain fog can be complicated, but it is definitely something that I can help you with.
The connection between health and religion is generally ignored by health providers of Western Medicine. In this post, I would like to step outside that norm. The importance of religion to health is said to be widely accepted by mental health practitioners. The general public, however, may not be as educated on how religion affects their health.
Our nutritionist, Noel Jensen, recently wrote an excellent blog that answers the frequently-asked question, “Juice or smoothie?” For my family, smoothies are the better fit for our nutritional needs. Each of us, including my 2-year-old and 5-year-old, drink a green smoothie almost every day. They are a quick and easy way to achieve serious health benefits.
Our Green Smoothie Story
I was taking several nutrition courses in chiropractic school when I learned that our diet was lacking in several ways, many of which would be addressed by green smoothies. However, I knew I had to get my better half on board with a change. My wife’s side of the story is quite amazing, so I wanted her to share it:
Our massage therapist, Sarah Babbitt, has been a member of the Larimer County Search and Rescue team since 1996! We’re happy to share information on this great organization and their event on July 16, 2016.
Search & Rescue
The Team. The search & rescue team consists of non-paid, highly trained professionals. They provide 24/7 search and rescue services under the authority of the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office.
The Service. When the pager goes off, “we all know what that means – someone needs our help! No matter what time of the day or the season, we have our backpacks ready to go whenever and wherever we are needed. And we love to do it! Call-outs may include: a lost hiker; a missing child; Alzheimer’s patients; a climber who got stuck or injured; hikers or hunters surprised by a blizzard; injured runners, mountain bikers, etc.”
