The Joy of Flying

You are dangling 25 feet in the air. Far below you is nothing but the hard warehouse floor. Holding you up is nothing but a sleek, slippery fabric which increasingly threatens to slide right out of grip with each passing moment.

Try a healthy beet salad

Candy striped chioga beets are an excellent source of potassium, magnesium, phosphorous, iron, vitamin A, B and C – they also help purify the blood and prevent some cancers. Eating them raw gives them great texture when sliced thin and tossed with Central Coast Creamery’s Goat Gouda and Kumquats and Basil. This is a beautiful spring salad and a little goes a long way; it would also be a great side to roasted chicken.

Benefits of fitness on overall health

“A healthy body is a guest-chamber for the soul; a sick body a prison.” – Francis Bacon

Like many of you, I feel we live in one of the most beautiful places in the world.  It’s relatively easy to enjoy the outdoors and be active year-round on the Central Coast.  I have also been lucky enough to work with an active group of people and have many active patients that inspire me to compete and push myself athletically.

Seniors strive for fitness

Age is mind over matter...if you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter. – Mark Twain

The famous quote above by Mark Twain truly represents the philosophy of the home owners at Traditions at River Oaks, a community of over-55 active seniors.

Since August 2013, a group of more than 30 seniors have met twice a week to lift weights, work on balance, flexibility and just have a good time while getting stronger and fit in the process.

Their ages range from 55 to the spry 90-year-old Bonnie Meyer.

“If you run, you are a runner. It doesn’t matter how fast or how far. It doesn’t matter if today is your first day or if you’ve been running for 20 years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run.” – John Bingham
