I had a fantastic experience last night that I wanted to share with you.
I was invited to counsel teams at the Player’s Development Academy (PDA), which is one of the premier soccer clubs in the United States, and the home of U16 PDA Slammers National Champion girls soccer team.
How many of us have memories of being stranded at the dinner table as kids, made to suffer over cold everlasting gobstopper-like brussell sprouts? “You’ll sit there until they’re done!” was the declaration in my house.
Now as we become parents we may find ourselves finding out that our parents weren’t just being cruel (or maybe they were) as we balance between the horror of that memory, and our desire to raise healthy kids.
Or perhaps you’ve gone the other way, allowing your inner child to win, living out that promise you made at the dinner table “I’ll NEVER do this to my child when i grow up…”
In either case it’s important you know WHY the kids should be eating veggies and what it means for YOU as a parent. So here are our 5 reasons your kids need to finish their veggies:

AlumniWellness blogger, meditation guru and yogi Light Watkins is a funny guy. So it came as no surprise when he called me to tell me how much fun he had on the Subway here in New York on his last trip. Apparently while he was involved in conversation with a friend he was also solving a Rubik’s cube on the train. Little did he know he had developed something of a following in the train car as he methodically turned the dial on the 80’s most iconic toy.
When good friends visit the office we only know how to do ONE THING… Share the LOVE!!!
My good friend and former college roomie, Lavell Flamon, came all the way from Denver for a visit, so OF COURSE I ran him to the gym. It’s just what we DO!
