The LiVe Well Garden makes a big difference in the lives of those who participate.
Last year every single person who had a plot in the garden at Orem Community Hospital said it was an excellent experience. They said gardening changed their eating habits, and they started cooking more at home and eating more fresh fruits and vegetables. Gardeners got to know each other and became friends. So this year, …

When it comes to making healthy changes there are two types of people:
1) The moderator - takes things slow and makes one change at a time.
2) The abstainer - makes big changes all at once. Cold turkey.
Which are you?
One style isn't better than the other. But understanding your style can help you make better lifestyle changes without getting frustrated and beating yourself up.
We all have our own unique set of characteristics and we have to find what works for us as individuals in order to establish a healthy habit. Here are four areas that can help you decide how to achieve the healthy habit you want.

Celebrate Pi Day with this YUMMY Shepherd's Pie.

Make it extra healthy by keeping the skin on the potatoes when you mash them. The potato skins contain a lot of the nutrients found in the potato.

INGREDIENTS
1½ lbs. red potatoes, washed and cut into ½ inch cubes, skin on
¼ cup low fat milk
1 Tbsp unsalted butter
2 tsp black pepper
1 lb. ground beef, 95% lean
1 Tbsp garlic
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup frozen pearl onions
1½ cups carrots, diced small
1 can no-salt-added corn, drained and rinsed
1½ cups frozen peas
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp dried rosemary

PREPARATION
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Adjust rack to center of oven.

2. Put potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Put on the stove over high heat and cover. Bring to a boil, uncover, and cook until potatoes are fork tender, about 15 minutes. Strain potatoes and return to pot that is now removed from heat. Add milk and butter and mash with a potato masher. Season with black pepper as needed.

3. Meanwhile, prepare the meat filling. Over medium high heat, cook ground beef until most pieces are light brown. Remove to large bowl.

4. Add olive oil, frozen pearl onions, and carrots to pan. Saute for 5 minutes or until frozen onions are heated through.

5. To the bowl, add onions, carrots, corn, and peas. Mix well to combine. Add Worcestershire sauce, thyme and rosemary and stir.

6. Empty bowl into 9-inch pie dish that has been coated in cooking spray. Top with mashed potatoes, being sure to cover the edges to create a seal.

7. Place pie on a baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes. Remove and let cool 5 minutes before serving.

Sure, they're eventually all going to fall out, but research is showing that failing to take care of baby teeth may cause lifelong dental problems. #dentalcare   #dentalhygiene   #dentist  
Ignoring oral health just because first teeth are going to fall out can lead to a lifetime of dental problems.

Ana Call, a registered nurse at Orem Community Hospital, has worked night shifts for 13 years, caring for women in labor, after delivery, and babies. She's no stranger to odd hours and the stress that causes on her body and immune system. 

“Once I had children, my sleep after working all night became very sporadic," says Ana. "I felt that in order to stay as healthy as possible and be able to deal with little sleep, I needed to do everything in my power to keep myself healthy."

This is where growing up in Wisconsin with a big family of 12 siblings – and even bigger garden – came in handy, because it taught Ana the importance of eating fresh fruits and vegetables to stay healthy. Even though it hasn't always been easy, Ana has noticed she feels better when her diet is based on fresh foods.

Though it does take more effort to prepare fresh food, Ana is a firm believer that it is 100% worth it and she has yet to find a salmon that tastes better than what she makes at home.
 
“I encourage everyone to get in the habit of buying healthy food, having your fridge stocked with fresh fruits and vegetables, getting your children used to snacking on healthy foods, and making it a priority to fuel your body with good food,” said Ana.

Making a menu, and prepping in advance to make healthy meals is now a part of life for Ana and her family. Her youngest child has even hopped on board and loves to make “green lemonade” with her in the morning before school.

Keep up the good work, Ana!

Small changes make a big difference.

From mixing fresh fruit into your cereal or yogurt to adding more vegetables to your sandwich at lunch, small changes can lead to a more nutritious diet. How do you add more fruits and vegetables to your meals?

A flashback to childhood, or an adult coping tool to reduce anxiety?

Adult coloring books are becoming increasingly popular — and for good reason! Coloring can help calm us and center us in the moment. There's nothing childish about it. Perhaps we were smarter as children than we think!
