AUDIO INTERVIEW: Eating healthier and planning your meals with Lisa Oz #TheOzFamilyKitchen
Fans of The Dr. Oz Show are often curious about what he and his family eat. It's easy to assume they live on a diet of kale and bean sprouts, eating only for sustenance, rather than enjoyment. But nothing could be further from the truth.
The Oz family, including Lisa and her husband Mehmet, love food – it just has to be good food, not processed or filled with empty calories.
Now for the first time, in THE OZ FAMILY KITCHEN: More Than 100 Simple and Delicious Real-Food Recipes from Our Home to Yours (Harmony Books; $27.99, On Sale October 6, 2015), Lisa Oz is inviting readers to her family table and sharing their knowledge, passion, and recipes."
I had the pleasure of talking with Lisa Oz. Lisa is the wife of Dr. Oz and her and her husband have a very busy successful life. Everyone who gets busy or tired gets in the habit of last minute meals. Many times, last minute meals lead to bad choices and eating habits. I've been guilty of this. Lisa discussed with me how important the role of food plays into spending time with her family and why it's essential to come up with an intentional plan to eating successfully. The truth is having a plan and goal and living a life of always working to achieve those goals is the only way to live successfully.
It's a great interview and you are sure to find some terrific recipes especially since Thanksgiving is not that far away. Enjoy the interview!
You may have seen the video of Army veteran Justin Patterson giving Brantley Gilbert his Purple Heart, and you may have even heard of how the two kept in touch after their Memorial Day ride. That's not uncommon. The "One Hell of an Amen" singer says he's frequently on the phone late at night, talking to military vets who are battling demons.
Gilbert has been a vocal and active supporter of the troops overseas, as well as organizations like the Wounded Warrior Project. He says it adds a lot to his life, beyond the very public events, ceremonies and YouTube videos.
"I invest in relationships so once I care about somebody, once I give a s––t about somebody I like to keep up with them and make sure they're okay, the best I can," Gilbert says.
It's a roller coaster. Some of his new friends relapse back into PTSD symptoms. "I find myself on phone conversations late at night, talking about things that are difficult to talk about that aren't about me, which is really, really good for me," the singer reveals.
Few are aware that Gilbert was once working toward a degree in marriage counseling before chasing musical dreams. He's also a guy who has battled mental demons, often with alcohol and reckless behavior. He's a credible and reliable confidant for these men and women, and that's a responsibility he holds dear to his heart.
Big gestures like the Wounded Warrior Project motorcycle ride and the more recent Chatanooga Unite concert are what fans see. It's what they don't see that leads to these events, and will continue to in the years to come.
Today is Thomas Rhett's third wedding anniversary. And when you look back at the video from the day he married his wife Lauren, it looks so much like his brand new video for his song "Die a Happy Man" that it's hard to tell the two apart. "My wife is one of those people that never wants to be in the spotlight or in videos, but it was inevitable for her to be in this one because I wrote the song for her and about her," Rhett told People about "Die a Happy Man."
The song — which goes "If I never get to build my mansion in Georgia/Or drive a sports car up the coast of California/If all I got, is your hand in my hand/Baby I could die, a happy man" — is off Rhett's latest album Tangled Up.
Casey Beathard and Dave Turnbull wrote "The Boys of Fall," which Kenny Chesney released in July of 2010 as the first single from his 12th studio album, Hemmingway's Whiskey. The song debuted at No. 17 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart — Chesney's highest debut since September of 2007 — and hit No. 1 in October. It also earned a Top 20 (No. 18) spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
Football is my biggest passion, other than songwriting and the family stuff I do. If I'm not with my family or writing, I'm at home, just watching football. That's my background: My dad and brothers were in football, and I have a big passion for it. I'm coaching my kids all through it.
That phrase, "the boys of fall," is something I'd heard a while back. It was something about, "I miss the boys of fall." I wrote it down and sat on it for a while.
Dave and I were sitting around with nothing to write. It was one of those times where it was in the air; you knew football season was coming. When Dave and I started talking about football, that phrase came back to me. We wanted to write it.
It was not so much about football as much as, we were talking about life. I always coordinate football with life anyway — leaning on each other and all that stuff you face in life. There's not a small town — or any town — in this country that doesn't get it. This is where football came from. I'm surprised there hasn't been a big song about football until now.
I knew Kenny had the same passion for football as I did. I remember him being on ESPN doing all the college game-day interviews, and I've seen him on TV with Sean Payton, the coach of the New Orleans Saints. I sent the song to him the first chance I had. He immediately got back to me and said he was going to put it on his album. This story was originally written by Alanna Conaway, and revised by Angela Stefano.
Business network CNBC reports a new survey found that nearly half of Americans have no savings at all. Data from GoBankingRates.com found that 28% of those surveyed had no money in their savings account and 21% didn't even have a savings account. Just 29% had 1-thousand dollars or more in savings.
An exercise pill – a way to pharmaceutically work out without the hassle of actually finding the time and going to the gym – might be the answer to every couch potato addicted to Netflix and Sunday Night Football's dream. But this pill isn't meant for them: an exercise pill would primarily benefit people who are paralyzed or had a stroke, or patients with spinal cord injuries, for example, and that's good news.
In something out of Brave New World, researchers are now starting to develop a pill that would help patients get the benefits of exercise, such as muscle growth, even when at rest.
Trials of the exercise pill are ongoing with animals. Let's hope they don't result in super muscular pets.
Test trials with animals are already underway but the thought of super muscular guinea pigs or chimps is kind of disturbing.
"They'll let you get muscles that are stronger and faster and reach exercise goals much quicker," said Ismail Laher, co-author of the study from University of British Columbia in Canada in this story from Time.
According to a new review in Trends in Pharmacological Sciences. "This is an achievable goal based on our improved understanding of the molecular targets of physical exercise," said co-author Ismail Laher in a release.
