Happy New Year to all and welcome to the spring semester. Spring semester at Syracuse is always exciting, even though we usually arrive back to more snow than we can handle. However, the spring semester brings new challenges and new excitement. Physical activity, usually on most people’s resolutions list, is not the first thing on a student’s mind at the start of the semester. Yet physical activity is extremely important, and is very easy on a campus like Syracuse’s.Read More...

The final two weeks of the semester can be very stressful, especially during the fall semester with the holiday season approaching. Students everywhere experience the same pressure to finish projects, study for exams, and prepare to go home for the holidays. The most standard advice is to get out and exercise, but I have found that scheduling physical activity is not always possible during the end of the semester. Alleviating stress during the end of the semester can happen if students manage time effectively and do something relaxing in addition to physical activity.Read More...

We are inundated with numbers depicting death tolls, dollars spent on tobacco, and increased disease risks. I am all for numbers (nerd alert!), but as someone who grew up in a time when anti-smoking ads outnumbered ads romanticizing tobacco, I feel as though I am numb to more faceless statistics. Instead, I find that the most jarring and impactful anti-smoking PSAs are the personal stories we all have of a loved one or friend who has suffered from the devastating effects of tobacco use.Read More...

As a college student, I know how easy it is to be tempted by high-calorie, unhealthy food choices. With midterms having come and gone and the holidays quickly approaching, it is very easy for college students to make unwise choices regarding their eating habits. For me, I definitely made unhealthy choices due to stress and the ease of picking up a piece of pizza from Marshall Street. I urge my fellow classmates to make food choices keeping moderation in mind while finishing midterms and going forward into the holiday season.Read More...

Let’s face it- puppies make so many things better, and unless you want your home destroyed, they need a lot of exercise (which means us owners need to get moving, too!). So what better way to add to the fun of the SU campus Monday Mile than letting a certain little girl by the name of Lucy Goose tag along.Read More...

Over the years, I’ve created a special bond with skillets and whisks, mandolines and spatulas. This love of the craft was instilled in me early in life."Read More...

I would like to say it is unseasonably warm in Syracuse right now, but I don’t really know since I was not living here at this time last year; but that is beside the point. The point is, this weather is warm and fantastic and when the weather is warm and fantastic, I crave ice cream.Read More...

What’s better than procrastinating on something that you really (and I mean really) don’t want to do? Obviously being mature, toughing it out, and just getting it done. So, as I was procrastinating the other night I decided to try out a new recipe one of my friends sent me from 101cookbooks.com. I had acquired about 10 cups of fresh kale earlier in the week through an undisclosed source and needed to use it before it went bad. This “Winter Pasta Recipe” was perfect. It is a kale and goat cheese pesto that as it turns out is pretty delicious. Combine it with whole-wheat pasta and you’ve got yourself a satisfying meatless meal.Read More...

Today is a day to wear red to show your support in the fight against heart disease. The Go Red for Women campaign is designed to create awareness about the number one killer of women in America, cardiovascular disease. In 2004, the American Heart Association introduced the campaign to show that heart disease wasn’t just a disease of older men, but a major concern for women too. Regardless of who it affects, heart disease is something we must all be aware of.Read More...

I'm always thinking of new ways to incorporate vegetables in my meals and give classic recipes a healthier spin. I love pureed cauliflower and I love mac and cheese, so I decided to creatively blend the two together to make this dish! The cauliflower gives the mac and cheese a rich, creamy texture and carrots give it a bright pop of color.Read More...

As we approach the halfway point in our semester it can be easy to lose focus. With each class pulling you in a different direction and a social life that just won’t quit, something has to give. Your health and personal well-being, however, should not “take the hit”. The Healthy Monday Campaign aims to help you stay on track by promoting healthy habits and supporting healthy programs throughout campus.

November is National Diabetes Awareness month and I think it is the most appropriate month to discuss the disease that affects 26 million Americans and threatens the lives of an additional 79 million who are at risk. We’ve just gorged on Halloween sweets and treats and are preparing for feasts and festivals over the remaining weeks of the year. Most of us know someone who has diabetes, but many of us don’t consider ourselves at risk.
