World Salt Awareness Week

 

This week is “World Salt Awareness Week”


 
World Salt Awareness Week“World Salt Awareness Week” is held from Monday March 11th to Sunday 17th March. This year’s theme is Less Salt Please, showing how you can reduce the salt in your diet without compromising taste and flavour. For more information visit World Action on Salt website.

When it comes to awareness about salt (sodium) consumption, most of us know that consuming too much salt can hurt our health. “Too much sodium raises blood pressure, which is a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke,” says CDC Director Dr. Thomas R. Frieden

But for many people, the awareness stops there; they don’t realize where most of the salt they take in is coming from. Is it the salt shaker on the table or by the stove? Is it the salt that naturally occurs in foods? These are indeed the source of some of the salt Americans consume, but the greatest amount—about 65 percent–comes from packaged foods and restaurant items.

According to the CDC, 10 types of foods are responsible for more than 40 percent of people’s sodium intake: luncheon meats such as deli ham or turkey; pizza; poultry; soups; cheeseburgers and other sandwiches; pasta dishes; meat dishes such as meat loaf; and snack foods such as potato chips, pretzels and popcorn; and breads and rolls, which in themselves are not too high in sodium until you consider the amount that we typically eat of these products.[1]

You can lower your sodium intake by eating fresh, unprocessed foods, and reading product labels to select those lower in sodium. Talk to your healthcare provider about your sodium consumption. To learn more, visit cdc.gov/salt [2]

January 28 – National Have Fun At Work Day

 

Monday January 28th is “National Have Fun At Work Day”


 

Wanted to post this early so everyone can get organized and plan. HAVE FUN!!


 

Here are some suggestions to help your day be more fun and to help you and your co-workers have a great day!

1. If appropriate at your work place, bring up the “National Have Fun At Work Day” idea to your co-workers. Maybe folks could join in to bring snacks. Or maybe they’d even have other ideas to add.

2. Wear something a little offbeat to work. People will think you’re nuts – or just having a great day. Hopefully it will get the comments started. Perhaps everyone could dress a little offbeat.

3. If you have a small office – or a small department, little gifts are always a great way to begin the day.

4. Food always seems to be a hit around the job site.

5. A white elephant gift exchange is always fun.

6. If your group likes to party together, perhaps you’d rather save your fun until after work . Someone may offer their home or apartment and others join in with food, drinks and games.

7. Many of us may have work-at-home jobs. This national day of fun does NOT exclude you. If you work at home, email a couple of your good clients and share some fun.

If your work keeps you very busy – just sharing a smile and a few fun words can cheer up most everyone.

Keep this appropriate. Yes, we all have work gripes. Today with so many companies downsizing, or heaping more work on fewer people, or just doing all they can to stay in the black – a day with a little fun added can help you keep your sanity.

December 16 – National Chocolate Covered Anything Day

 

Today is
National Chocolate Covered Anything Day.


 
National-Chocolate-Covered-Anything-DayWoo Hoo!!!! Falling between Thanksgiving and Christmas, the timing of this day couldn’t be better. We can enjoy something… anything… covered in a generous amount of chocolate. Pour, spread, or drizzle chocolate over just about anything today.

It’s a day to rejoice and indulge in one of my favorite sweets….chocolate. Everything tastes better dunked, dipped or drenched in chocolate.

In honor of today, try whipping up one of the fabulous video recipes below.

October 31 – Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone!


 
Kids look forward to this day and love to dress up in costume and go door to door to get candy, big surprise.

Trick or Treating should be one of the great adventures of Halloween for kids! Making your child’s Halloween fun and memorable will give them memories for a lifetime. Mom and Dad if you are accompanying the kids you should dress up as well. Get in the spirit, make the night more memorable.

Here are a few safety tips for the Trick or Treating:

1.) It’s unfortunate I have to even say this, but remind the kid’s not to eat any candy before inspected.

2.) Make sure the kids have a flashlight and/or reflective tape on their costume so they are visible to cars.

3.) Trick or Treat in a group if out without an adult.

4.) Make sure someone in the group has a cell phone.

5.) Plan a safe route so you know where the kids will be at all times.

6.) Remind the kids to stay in populated areas and not to cut through back alleys and fields.

Making your child’s Halloween fun and memorable will give them memories for a lifetime. Mom and Dad if you are accompanying the kids you should dress up as well. Get in the spirit, make the night more memorable.
