Staying Motivated: Many people start fitness programs, but they may stop when they get bored, they don't enjoy it or results come too slowly. Here are some great tips to keep you motivated.
Positive Self-Talk: Self-talk is the talking you do in your own head about yourself and the things that happen, your own "running commentary" on your life. What you say to yourself can have a big effect on the way that you feel, and on what you can achieve. Positive self-talk is one tool that can be used to achieve your full potential.
SNFC Healthy Eating Recipes: Few foods are more comforting than a bowl of hot, homemade chili. Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op has a robust Turkey and Black Bean Chili recipe that will keep your family coming back for more. Chock-full of ground turkey, black beans and diced tomatoes, it's so full of flavor; your family won't even miss the ground beef! This chili is healthy and nourishing for both your body and soul, which will help you make it to Friday in one piece. Garnish with salsa and cilantro leaves, and serve with rolled tortillas on the side.
