As she told Greeley Tribune, "It's our 'neener-neener-neener' to breast cancer". She shaved her head for the last time in the fall of 2011, she reported to us. "I have short spiky hair now and I'm enjoying it." Twelve days into chemotherapy in 2009, Kay gathered a group of friends and family to have a 'Head Shave Day'. For a while, had her daughter, Tiffany, use her head as a canvas to reflect her outgoing personality.
March is National Nutrition Month and the American Dietetic Association is encouraging everyone to get their plate in shape. Doing that shaping includes getting rid of some foods and replacing them with better choices. "When people eat foods that have added sugars and solid fats, they are consuming extra calories they don't need," says registered dietitian and Academy Spokesperson Angela Ginn. "These 'empty calories' are found in a number of foods and drinks and offer little-to-no nutritional benefits." "It is smart to look for foods that have no added sugars, like unsweetened apple sauce or unsweetened whole-grain cereals," Ginn says.
