Someburros Superfan

There's just something about Someburros that encourages "super fan" status,
and the iconic Valley Mexican eatery is looking to reward its biggest cheerleader with its most
sizable giveaway to date: free burros for not one, not 10, but 30 full years.

Starting Wednesday, March 23, Someburros friends and fans can enter to win the grand prize
by sharing the reason they crave Someburros within 10 words or less to the restaurant's
Facebook page. Entries can be uploaded to Facebook.com/Someburros, and then the Vasquez
family, who owns and operates the eatery's six Valleywide locations, will then select its 10
favorite entries. There's plenty of time for the public to get in on the voting, too, because
Someburros social media fans may then vote amongst the top 10 entries and ultimately select
the Someburros Superfan.

Online entries can be made between Wednesday, March 23 and Saturday, April 30, and voting
will then take place between Tuesday, May 3 and Monday, May 9. The official winner of free
burros for 30 years will be announced Wednesday, May 8 via email.

From Certified Organic, GMO Free, Fair Trade, Cage Free, etc.  What does all of this mean?  Life Time Fitness Registered Dietician, Julie Brown is here to explain.
Fair Trade. You've probably have seen this label in the coffee aisle in the grocery store or when you order a latte at your favorite coffee shop.  This label is acquired after meeting certain international standards.  It is inclusive of workers' rights, collective bargaining, high working conditions, fair contracts, and payment that covers producers' costs and gives them certainty.
USDA Organic definition is that it's produced "using methods that preserve the environment and avoid most synthetic materials, such as pesticides and antibiotics." The most refers to the fact that it only has to be 95-percent.  In animals it is everything to what they eat and letting them "exercise their natural behavior."  It must also be GMO free, preserve natural resources and be maintained in a separate area from non-organic foods.
Cage Free Many of us opt for this label when buying eggs, thinking it is both healthier for us and the chicken.  But cage free just means chickens were not kept in cages.  In fact, they may not even get out for fresh air and stay confined to a barn.
GMO Free You see this on everything from snacks to bread at the grocery store.   GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organisms.  If something is Verified GMO-Free it means that the food product has not been altered at the gene level. Another definition of a genetically modified foods are also frequently described as "genetically engineered", "genetically altered" or "genetically manipulated.

Melissa Sledge 

Melissa Sledge was featured in the March Issue of Shape magazine for her 43 pound weight loss. 
(Current weight loss total is 47 pounds.) Her weight loss success is attributed to making small changes to her diet and continuing to make modifications to encourage continued weight loss.
Melissa plans and prepares her meals weekly and is dedicated to a healthy lifestyle. 

    I eat "real" whole foods. My diet is simple and consists of eating foods in their truest form. (Shop the perimeter of the grocery store) 
    I select 3 meats (beef, poultry or fish) and pair them with a variety vegetables.  
    Each prepped meal is paired with a different item. Variety is essential to prevent boredom. 
    Depending on what I'm preparing, cooking meals can take about 1-2 hours. 
    Simultaneous cooking: all burners on the stove have a pot and the oven is full . I start with oven foods first, fish or roasted vegetables, and while those     items are cooking I cook broccoli, beets egg white and turkey patties. 
        I am genuinely hungry every 2-3 hours and eat 5-6 times a day. 
        Before bed, I select the meals for the next day.  If I know I have a busy day, I select foods that will 
        be easy to manage on the go. Ex: tuna, apples, measured quantity of nuts in a Ziplock bag.

Preventing Sport Injuries

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Rymer Liriano took a hit to the face at a spring training game last week suffering multiple facial fractures. It's a reminder that sports injuries happen quickly and for our kids there's an even greater risk. Dr. Pablo Prichard, the Chief of Plastic Surgery at John C. Lincoln Hospital is here with some tips to stay safe while playing sports.

Sports related injuries can happen quickly but for our kids the risk is even greater. 
The group Safe Kids Worldwide estimates that 1.35 million children suffer sports related injuries. 
20 percent of those injuries are to the face and head.

Protective gear designed for your sport is the best way to avoid or minimize an injury.
Everyone not just kids should wear helmets and protective eyewear be sure it fits properly!

Beyond the face and head, other more common injuries are pulled or strained muscles.
Stretch and warm up properly Take breaks and be sure to take time off during practices and workouts.
