You don't have to stray from your diet this Easter.
The Easter holiday, like many other traditional holidays, is celebrated over a big meal. Whether you choose to indulge in savory ham, spit fire lamb, roasted chicken or skip right to the chocolate bunny, the calories can add up fast. However, this once a year holiday, should not be treated like a food crime scene. Foxborough Patch spoke with Josh Heenan, certified strength and conditioning specialist. "People get all worked up around the holidays because of more temptation and less than stellar dietary choices," said Heenan. "If you practice eating a well balanced diet throughout the year, these splurges are something you should enjoy." Easter dinner in itself is actually a healthy meal, complete with vegetables, proteins and greens. …

Life lessons and a Greek Easter recipe straight from Yaya's kitchen!
"Eat something you must be hungry," my Yaya (Grandmother in the Greek language) would always recite to me when I came to visit. In the Greek culture, food is important, but not because of the obvious reasons such as taste and comfort. Some of the most important conversations in my life have occurred around food. Whether cooking in the kitchen, heading out to dinner or enjoying a late night snack, food brings people together. What I learned to cook in my Yaya's kitchen dosen't measure up to the life lessons that I learned. Every Greek Easter my family gathers in my Yaya's kitchen for a day filled with good food, great conversation and life lasting memories. One of my favorite recipes of the Easter holiday is Tsoureki, pronounced, 'tsoo-REH-…

Procrastinate, panic, plan then get into action.
I just finished up tax season, and I’m exhausted! What is up with everyone waiting until the last minute to file their taxes? I should talk because I’m a procrastinator too. I wait until the last minute to leave the house, because I think I can get just one more thing in. But the thing is, procrastination also leads to forgetting those things we put off for another time. I woke up at 6 a.m. today, and my eyes sprung open as I said to my husband, “My Patch article is due!” Panicked, I ran downstairs and turned on the computer. At that moment, I realized Easter is this Sunday, and I’m having a bunch of people over for dinner! Panic again! What good is getting panicked over something? Everything will progress forward until the appointed time…
