What do the Three Stooges have in common with these ladies?


Beverly Warren Gaard
Recently, I had the pleasure of meeting these two lovely ladies. Both of these actresses had roles in the Three Stooges movies.

Beverly Warren Gaard was in one Three Stooges films. Maybe you have also seen her in D.O.A and River Lady. Her book, I Was There, will soon be released. Her favorite foods are bananas and pineapple. She does aerobic exercise and walks 30 minutes every day. By the way, Beverly is 90 years old!
Dianna Darrin

Dianna Darrin appeared in ten of the Three Stooges movies! Dianna is an actress and singer and had roles in numerous movies (The Broken Land with Jack Nicholson, Slither with James Caan) and tv shows (Bonanza, McHale’s Navy). When Dianna wants to lose weight, she cuts back on portion sizes. She loves Sushi and Italian food.


It was a rare treat to meet these delightful and accomplished women.

Vegetables are Your Friends



Are you looking for ways to eat vegetables? Try these tips:
-Vegetables are delicious grilled or roasted. Make a stir-fry or add them to a smoothie.
- For convenience, stock up on canned (tomatoes, dried beans) and frozen (corn, spinach) vegetables.
- Go to a Farmers Market with family or friends. Keep trying new vegetables.
Here's an awesome recipe loaded with vegetables. Go Yum!
Roasted Veggie Pizza

Spread 3 cups of sliced mushrooms and 1 red pepper cut into ¼ inch slices on a large pan and roast at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Add ¼ inch slices of ½ large sweet onion to 1 tablespoon of hot oil and cook until caramelized. Remove onions and add 7 cups of small pieces of kale to 1 tablespoon of hot oil and stir-fry until wilted. Press 2 prepared pizza crusts on pans. Spread marinara sauce on crusts. Add veggies and cover with shredded mozzarella cheese. Bake pizzas in a 450 degree preheated oven until crusts are golden brown on bottom and cheese is golden and bubbling.

Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right

Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right

It’s been a busy month helping clients enjoy the taste of eating right. Are you like most people? If food doesn’t taste good, you aren’t going to eat it. To be healthy, it’s important to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. I have found that some people are turned off by vegetables, because they grew up eating them steamed, mushy and flavorless.

Keeping in mind the theme of National Nutrition Month, “Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right”, I worked with my clients to find interesting, new ways to prepare vegetables. And do you know what? It worked.
  • ·         If you don’t like anything green, try kale chips. They are surprisingly quick and easy.
  • ·         If you think vegetables are bland, coat cut up pieces of potatoes and carrots in a little oil. Season with a new herb, like rosemary, and roast. Delicious!
  • ·         If you absolutely don’t like vegetables, throw some spinach, celery, and cucumber in a blender with an apple, some yogurt, and ice for a refreshing smoothie.


With a little creativity, it’s easy to enjoy new flavors that taste great. For more ideas, check out eatright.org/nnm.
