The latest fad diet is all the talk around the water cooler lately — after all, it helped your co-worker lose 15 pounds like magic. It sounds easy enough, that you’ve even considered giving it a shot. Although that fad diet may help you shed a few pounds pretty fast, in the long run, they tend to lose their oomph.
Whether you will be hosting a Superbowl party this year or just making snacks for your own family and you want to serve something healthy, one approach you can take is to serve lightened-up versions of foods that you know your friends and family members will enjoy.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., an ordained minister and leader of the modern American Civil Rights Movement. Under his direction, African-Americans made great strides in genuine progress toward racial equality in America. Dr. King advocated non-violence and is known as one of the most celebrated nonviolent leaders in history.
King was deeply influenced by both his Christian faith and the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi, another leader who spoke of nonviolence. Dr. King led a nonviolent movement starting in the late 1950s and 1960s with a goal to achieve legal equality for African-Americans in the US.

New Year’s Day is more than just the time of year when we turn over a new date on the calendar.
It’s symbolic for another reason: Although we could choose any day of the year to make a brand new start at anything we have decided is “off” or lacking in our lives, the beginning of a new year always seems like a good time to make changes.
Unfortunately for most of us, the enthusiasm for our New Year’s resolution fades out rather quickly. The majority of people who make those resolutions don’t see them through. They start off with the best of intentions, as all bright and shiny projects do, but they just can’t seem to keep the momentum going throughout the year.
