April Video Tip Clip:  Proper Posture

Do you slouch when you sit or stand?  Have you ever noticed that your shoulders round forward or your head seems to hang too far out ahead of your body?  Do you suffer from low back or neck pain?  What about headaches?  Traci is a Certified Posture Specialist and may be able to help correct a few (or all) these types of issues!

Monthly Spotlight

Positive Posture

A study just published in the Journal of Behavior Therapy and Experimental Psychiatry suggests that while simply sitting or standing with good posture is not an acceptable replacement for professional treatment for depression, it can actually help you to feel more upbeat, energetic, alert and proud of your accomplishments.  At the same time it may also help you to feel less fearful, and have higher self-esteem at the end of a stressful task.

We don’t have a psychiatrist on staff, but we do have a N.P.I. Certified Posture Specialist.  In fact, each of our Certified Personal Trainers can help to correct postural distortions such as rounded shoulders or forward head posture, but as a CPS; Traci is best qualified to evaluate and correct a variety of postural issues.  

Many adults (and even some youth) suffer from headaches, back pain, and other issues that are often able to be traced back to poor posture.  We understand that not every guy wants to look like Dwayne Johnson, and we get that not every woman aspires to look like a swimsuit model.  What we suspect everyone does want though, is to feel and function their best…and we’d love to help you do just that!

Yours in health,

Egg & Bacon Mini Casseroles

Ingredients

  • 1 (10-ounce or 280-gram) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • 4 slices (35 grams per slice) 100% whole-wheat bread, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup (110 grams) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 green onion stalks (35 grams), chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 4 slices (110 grams) cooked bacon, chopped
  • 5 large (50 grams each) eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups (305 grams) low-fat milk

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Spray one 12-well muffin tin (or two 6-well muffin tins) with cooking oil spray, and set aside.

Put thawed spinach into a mesh strainer, and squeeze out as much excess water as possible. Set spinach aside.

In a large mixing bowl, coat cubed bread with olive oil. Add spinach, cheese, green onions, garlic powder, salt, pepper and bacon. Toss the bread mixture until well combined. Divide the mixture evenly among the 12 muffin-tin wells.

In the same bowl, beat the eggs and stir in the milk. Pour the mixture over the bread in the muffin tin, trying your best to evenly divide the egg-and-milk mixture into each muffin well.

Bake the casseroles for 30–40 minutes, or until the bread on top is golden and crispy and the centers are set. Test by poking a skewer into one of the casseroles, and see if it comes out clean.

Allow casseroles to cool before serving.
