December 2016
As is our custom, we are using our final newsletter of the year to reflect back on our most popular blog entries from the last twelve months. Enjoy your favorites again and check out the ones you missed.

2016 has been a tough year for many of us for a variety of reasons, particularly the election and its fallout. Politics affects nutrition (consider our government's "war on obesity," for example) as does hate. Remember that we are donating 100% of your co-pays from mid-November through the end of the year to the Southern Poverty Law Center, an important organization that fights hate and teaches tolerance. You are making a difference, and we thank you for that.

Best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season!
