Let’s face it – we have all been that person, the one who says “it’s okay, I am fine. I will make that doctors appointment another day.” There are millions of reasons why we don’t take time to make healthy lifestyle choices. Kids, jobs, cat videos on the Internet – we’re all busy. But let me ask you this – if it were the health of your child, your parent, or another loved one, would you still procrastinate? Whatever the reason, there’s no excuse for not taking care of yourself just like you would make the time to take care of someone else!
March 22nd is Diabetes Alert Day. No one is excused from prediabetes. 86 million American adults (more than 1 in 3) have prediabetes and are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes, a serious health condition that can lead to heart attack and stroke. Surprisingly, nearly 90% of those with prediabetes don’t even know that they have it. But it’s not all bad news. Prediabetes often can be reversed through weight loss, diet changes and increased physical activity. Diagnosis is key: research shows that once people are aware of their condition, they are much more likely to make the necessary lifestyle changes. Education and awareness could mean the difference in so many lives.
Making changes may seem tough. But remember, even a small amount of weight loss (5-7% of your body weight) can reverse prediabetes before it develops into type 2 diabetes.

My dog, Trouble, is a 4 year old Yorkie who certainly lives up to her name. You see, while most canines do dog-like things, my pup seems to think she's either a person or a cat. There's really no in-between with her, and she certainly never really acts much like a dog.
She lays around and sleeps, tries to go into our litter boxes, and she even tries to steal the cats' food when I'm not looking.
When she's not exhibiting kitty-like behavior, she is trying to steal my veggies or bottles of water. The fresh clean water in her bowl isn't good enough, so she wants her Mommy's bottles instead. She's such a silly pup at times!
So yes, Trouble can definitely be...well...trouble!
We love her anyway, of course, and she's a very valued member of our family. We want what's best for our dog, so we know that cat food simply won't do. Cats and dogs have different nutritional needs, so we've been hunting for a dog food that even my very picky dog will eat.
Usually, Trouble either turns her nose up at dog food, or she will eat it when she's super-hungry and I put the cat food out of her reach. On the rare occasion, I find dog food that she will happily devour. Those, however, are few and far between, and they don't always contain the quality ingredients I prefer to feed my pet.
Did you know dogs need the proper balance of protein, carbohydrates, and fats to thrive? It's true! Most of a dog's caloric intake should come from animal-based proteins, not from grains or soy.
That's why I was really excited when I learned about the brand new, high-quality dog food from Weruva®.
This food is new to the scene, and is made with the wellness of your pups in mind. Weruva® offers 2 different formulations of dog food: Caloric Harmony and Caloric Melody.
Both of these kibbles are low-carb, and are made with only the finest natural ingredients, such as chicken, lamb, salmon, venison, and more. These foods are rich in things your dog needs, like salmon oil, linoleic acid, zinc, and B vitamins. This winning combination of ingredients helps your dog maintain a healthy coat and skin, too!
There are a few things you won't EVER find in Weruva® dog foods:
What's the difference between Caloric Harmony and Caloric Melody?
Caloric Harmony offers 80% animal-based protein, while Caloric Melody offers 70% animal-based protein at a bit lower cost.
The generous folks at Weruva® sent us a bag of their Caloric Harmony Chicken Dinner with Pumpkin to check out for ourselves. I was immediately impressed with the ingredients, especially the addition of pumpkin. Dogs LOVE the stuff, and it's actually great for their digestive systems.
Now Trouble seemed a bit confused by this food at first. It doesn't look like the cat food she's so used to sneaking....It doesn't smell like cat food, either. In fact, according to her reaction, it must smell a whole lot better to her!
Score #1 for Weruva®. It's passed the sniff-test!
Hey. This is a pretty big deal. Trouble is a picky little thing, after all!
Now for the important part....Will she eat Weruva® Caloric Harmony Chicken Dinner with Pumpkin?
After sniffing and whiffing and sniffing some more, Trouble took the plunge and dug into her brand new food. No, scratch that. Trouble HAPPILY devoured her Weruva® Caloric Harmony!
I have to admit, I am very pleasantly surprised. Like I mentioned before, Trouble definitely lives up to her name, so the fact that my spoiled little diva gobbled up food that was actually made for dogs rather than humans or cats is saying a lot!
Obviously, Weruva® Caloric Harmony is a winner with Trouble, the pickiest Yorkie on the planet.
It's a winner with me, too! This food is incredibly well-balanced, and full of only the best, natural ingredients. By choosing Weruva®, I always know that my dog is getting the proper nutrition to keep her happy and healthy.

Here in the Cleveland, OH area, we have snow on the ground. Again. In March. Mother Nature seems to be more than a little bit confused, and she really just needs to cut it out. We, like so many others, are more than ready to welcome springtime. Whether it seems like it's on the way or not, it will get here, probably sometime sooner than later. I hope.
Anyway, every spring, I try and update the kids' wardrobes, from their heads all the way down to their toes. Spring is all about color and fun, and I like my kids' looks to reflect a brand new season.
This year, we got brand new shoes from a well-loved Japanese company, IFME. They have recently launched their best-selling line of children's shoes here in the US market, and kids and parents everywhere are loving what they see! I mean, can you blame them? These shoes are brightly colored, designed for comfort, and definitely make a statement!

As the mom of 3 incredibly tech-savvy kids, it's a constant battle to limit internet access. We have laptops, smart phones, tablets, and gaming systems that all have internet capabilities.
In a technological age, parents are faced with a lot of worries when it comes to their kids' activities online. Some of the more common concerns include:
When it comes to internet access, I am pretty strict about what I will allow my kids to be exposed to. This is true even when it comes to my 16 year old. Just because something is online doesn't mean it's suitable for kids to view. With all of the adult content, spam advertisements, online predators, and otherwise unsavory things online, I feel it's better to be safe than sorry.

Cold and flu season is here, folks. Here in NE Ohio, I know a lot of families are feeling the effects. Coughs, sneezes, and general ickiness seem to go hand in hand with a dreary, Ohio winter. Thankfully, knock on wood, we have not been struck with the "Winter Sickies" yet.
Should we suddenly become afflicted with coughing or runny noses, I have a great solution in my cabinet: GaiaKids® Bronchial Wellness for Kids is an alcohol-free, natural supplement that safely and gently promotes respiratory wellness. It also supports healthy mucous membranes. And as we all know, kids and excessive mucous do not go well together!
