Affirmation of the Week
We are all down in the gutter,
except some of us are looking at the stars.

Stress Reduction Tip of the Week
Cultivate your own personal support system at home. Work on your intimate relationships to generate a feeling of well-being. Have a weekly date with your spouse. Prepare food and cook with your spouse and then dine by candle light with a glass of wine. Spend more time noticing what your spouse and children do right and affirm them for that. Take time to play with your spouse, children, grandchildren or pet. Release your impulsive inner child.

Food of the Week - Broccoli Rabe
Your grandmother may have called it rapini. It has old world charm with modern day benefits. It is packed with vitamins A& C and other nutrients. Once found only in the Italian grocer’s it is now widely available in supermarkets. Broccoli rabe looks like broccoli, but has smaller florets. Choose bunches with small stems and tightly closed flowers. When preparing, rinse and trim a quarter of the stem. Cut stems crosswise and blanche in boiling water for a couple of minutes. Then sautee in olive oil and fresh garlic for 3-5 minutes. Serve at room temperature by tossing into salads and meat sandwiches with tomatoes. Chop it up hot and stir into mashed potatoes for a healthy zip.
