Project Roots (0:00:00) Despite the rise of "healthy" grocery stores like Whole Foods and Sprouts around the country, many people across the U.S. still do not have access to healthy foods. How can we ensure all Americans have access to the healthy food they deserve? Bridget Pettis, founder of nonprofit Project Roots and former WNBA player and coach, discusses the importance of making healthy food more accessible. Sugar "Addiction" (0:15:36) If you have a sweet tooth, stopping after just one chocolate chip is most likely a challenge. Sugar is a huge part of most of our diets, but how much is too much? And how can we cut back on the soda, cake and other sugary sweets? Fitness nutrition specialist and health coach Malia Frey helps us navigate our relationship with sugar. The Art of Bonsai (0:34:59) Bonsai is not a species of tree, but instead a reference to the form a tree will take. The history of the bonsai tree is a long one. Thought to have originated in China, it was exported to Japan where the Japanese have spent the last several hundred years cultivating the art. Creator and host of the popular YouTube channel Bonsai Zone, Nigel Saunders, shares the modern-day art of bonsai. Speaking Others' Love Languages (0:52:46) Think about the ways in which you feel and receive love. Are they the same as your partners'? Or your children's or your friends'? Dr. Gary Chapman, author of the best-seller The Five Love Languages, teaches us how to identify and speak the love languages of our loved ones, even when they are different from our own. Are Packaged Foods Healthy? (1:27:00) Let's go back to those frantic days a few months ago when you arrived at the grocery store in a panic only to find almonds and Eggo waffles left of the shelves. Thank goodness our fears of only eating packaged foods did not become a reality, but contrary to popular belief, packaged and frozen foods might be much more nutritious and useful than we realize. Nutrition expert Toby Amidor shares ways to incorporate pacakaged foods into our diet.
