- Try some CA avocado for a recipe ingredient that’s versatile and nutritious
California is the prime grower and exporter of avocados, and for good reasons. The state’s soil, sea breeze, air quality and drainage create ideal conditions for growing high quality avocados that are creamy, filled with vitamins and antioxidants, and taste good. Avocados go great with salads, and can be used as substitutes for breakfast toppings like butter and cream cheese, or mayonnaise in poached eggs. Chef Sara Moulton will discuss some of these recipe ideas and more on the “Everyday Gourmet” series of The Balancing Act® on Lifetime TV.
- Don’t let the dog (and cat) days of summer get to your pet
The hot summer weather is here, so it’s time to think about our dogs and cats, and keeping them safe and healthy. With proper care, such as making sure the cat or dog is hydrated, a pet can enjoy the outdoors with his or her pet parent even in hot weather. Join Michelle Dixon, Health and Nutrition Specialist for Petcurean Pet Nutrition, who will offer these and other tips for protecting our pets and feeding them quality pet food on this “Family Ties” segment. She will also talk about Petcurean’s “Savour Every Moment” contest, where people can submit photos of fun times with their pets. The winner gets to be featured in an ad campaign by Petcurean, and can also receive either a GoPro® camera or a year’s supply of dog or cat food.
