I distinctly remember going for a walk with my husband one crisp morning after Christmas last year. There was much to be done. We had a Christmas tree to dismantle—ornaments to gently wrap and store. There was the aftermath of unwrapped gifts, the discarded wrapping paper to deal with and boxes to break down and recycle (not to mention finding a place for all the new stuff). So, too, did we have a kitchen overflowing with excess food. In short, we were full. Our bellies and most every room in our house showed proof that our holiday had been abundant in every sense of the word.
(BPT) - When Schuyler Morris’ son, Bear, experienced his first life-threatening allergic reaction to dairy from a piece of buttered toast given to him by a well-meaning babysitter, Morris wasn’t initially sure the reaction warranted an epinephrine injection. Although Bear had previously been tested and diagnosed with a life-threatening allergy to dairy and peanuts by an allergist, in the moment, Morris questioned whether the signs and symptoms her son was experiencing were truly an emergency and didn’t want to overreact. Instead, she headed for her pediatrician’s office. Morris wasn’t even halfway there before she realized she needed to take action immediately.

In the same vein of “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “Catcher in the Rye,” Rudolfo Anaya’s “Bless Me, Ultima” has evolved into one of the most widely beloved and challenged books of all time. In some high schools this best-selling Chicano novel is considered a mandatory reading. Other schools have banished the book for its use of profanity, references to witchcraft, and religious themes. For anyone with an open mind, “Bless Me, Ultima” is certainly an enriching read-through about acceptance, family, faith, culture, and independence. The charm of Anaya’s novel sadly doesn’t shine through this adaptation by Carl Franklin, which gets bogged down by wooden performance and insipid direction.

“The Five-Year Engagement” had a surprisingly poor opening over the weekend, grossing only $11.1 million and placing fourth at the box office. “Think Like a Man” maintained first place for the second week in a row, grossing $18 million, and somehow, someway, maybe by some misalignment of Jupiter’s moons with Venus, even “The Lucky One” (those who read my review last week know how I feel about this movie) managed to top “The Five-Year Engagement” over the weekend.

Driving through Tucson, one notices an abundance of colorful restaurant signs inhabiting the city’s crowded streets. Familiar corporate logos can be found on every corner alongside local chains and family owned establishments. Not only are there endless places to dine at, a common theme seems to connect many eateries on these cluttered roads; most menus are not centralized around a healthy diet. Between your typical fast-food staples, and the inexhaustible (although delightful) Mexican venues, it can be nearly impossible to enjoy a delicious yet healthy meal while dining out.
