Thanksgiving, full of family, friends, and food. Lots and lots of food. For someone who wants to stay fit and healthy, being surround by food can be overwhelming. You love the holidays, but fear gaining weight. The average person gains 1-2 pounds from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day. Below are some tips to eating a healthy meal and not overeating during the holidays.
Just because it’s the holidays, doesn’t mean you should over indulge with unhealthy foods. A good tip to not overeating is portioning your food. Choose the healthier foods and only give yourself a certain amount so you …
The holidays are a time for celebrating with family and friends, but the season can bring challenges for cancer patients and those who have recently completed treatment. The stresses of cancer may leave them feeling out of touch or overburdened with traditional holiday responsibilities. If someone you know is in, or has recently completed, treatment for cancer, consider these tips for helping during the holidays.
Let the patient take the lead. Some people will want to celebrate the holiday season as they always have, but others may want to step back and be less festive. Even if treatment is over, your …
Hello! My name is Michelle Nigro and I’m thrilled for the opportunity to start volunteering with Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer. I’m 23 years old from the Boston area and I am passionate about breast cancer awareness and fundraising.
Throughout my entire life I’ve tried to do my part to spread awareness and fundraise for a cure. Growing up I would hold bake sales at school and sign up my sports teams for Breast Cancer fundraising walks in Boston.
When I entered college I started organizing my own fundraising and awareness events. As the philanthropy chair of my sorority, Alpha Epsilon Phi, at …
Happy holiday season. I really hope people are able to enjoy and really appreciate the holidays and cherish them. I know a lot of people with terminal cancer sometimes struggle through the holidays. I think a lot of them may think it’s their last one. The bottom line is no one really knows. I really hope each of us can focus on the all the good of Christmas and not just the present. I really enjoy all the good energy of Christmas, all the lights and decorations. My ultimate present would be to see everyone enjoying the holidays, not matter …

One word: Garlic. I use garlic in so many things when I cook. Tomato sauce, mashed potatoes, stir-fried veggies; they all taste so much better when I add a little (but usually a lot more than a little) garlic.
For the amount of garlic I use when I cook it’s surprising that I don’t own a garlic press. Chopping garlic the old fashion way, mincing and slicing on my wooden cutting board, works pretty well. I still get the same delicious flavor, it just takes a little longer and leaves my fingers smelling like garlic for a couple days, …
The fall is quickly passing! Thanksgiving will soon be here before we know it and it is time to think about holiday parties! Whether you choose to go out to a restaurant to have your party or do one at home, time is now upon us to start thinking about it and to start planning it!
Last year a friend who does not bake was invited to a holiday party where she needed to bring a dessert and asked me to bake the dessert for her! Of course I said yes and when she told me about the party …
I think I was seven when I made roasted pumpkins seeds for the first time. My mom, sister, and I gutted the orange gourds, rinsed the stringy flesh from the seeds, and placed the little teardrops onto a baking dish. After the oven timer beeped we sprinkled the toasty snack with salt and ate until with couldn’t eat any more.
Fall always brings me back to that memory and I’m sure it has everything to do with the abundance of pumpkin-flavored everything. There’s just something about pumpkins that changes the atmosphere of an entire season. Perhaps it’s the flavor: for three months of …
