With Cholesterol Awareness Month underway (see my article on ways to be heart healthy all month long here), I thought I’d get the dish on what it means to choose healthy snacks from Ramona Cappello, Founder & CEO of the number one heart healthy snack company, Corazonas Foods.

September is national “Cholesterol Awareness Month,” and I’m challenging myself to make it a heart healthy one. Childhood (and adult) obesity is no joke in our country, which is why raising awareness about heart healthy eating, and regular exercising should be our mantra for the month of September.

Let’s be real for a minute. Who really has the time to crunch abs 24/7 in hopes of looking like an ever so “perfect” Victoria Secret model? In reality, some (or most) of us have nine-to-five desk jobs that make it nearly impossible to stick to a strict diet [...]

I used to think there was the possibility that I might have been secretly adopted simply because I don’t resemble ANYONE in my immediate family. My brother is 6’2, buff, athletic, and darker than any cast member on the Jersey Shore. My sister sizes up at 5’8, and is athletically built with light hair [...]
History in the making will be unfolding right before our eyes in several hours now and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I have to admit though I don’t think I’ve been more jealous of someone than I am of Kate Middleton. She’s a beautiful commoner who met her literal prince charming, who now [...]
