Like jazz music? Painting abstractly is the perfect pairing 🎶 🎨 Call Sonoma Cellar (703) 566-9867 to sign up to watch me live painting to the Tara Hofmann Duo on 1/29. I’ve been practicing on these works in progress while listening to Tara’s music. The event also features a Chateau St Michelle wine tasting and Sonoma Cellar appetizers.
This is my own testimony. I discovered chiropractic care while serving on active duty nearly 20 years ago. I struggled with numerous injuries, and had difficulty running even 2 miles. Within a few months of starting care I felt better than I had in years. After 6 months of care, I trained for and ran my first marathon, and have completed more than 50 marathons since!

The Chicken Post
Today I am here to write about our dear friend....the chicken
We know tons about chicken, eat tons of chicken, buy tons of chicken. We just all love chicken put simply. It's delicious.
Chicken gives us a great source of balanced macronutrients, taste! and something that can be used in a variety of different ways. Versatile if you will. Some believe however there is nothing overly special about chicken. Some feel it does not match the value of fish and it's healthy fat content or maybe certain cuts of porks protein density. The truth is...chicken is actually as optimal a protein source as it gets!
Chicken is about the 8th highest leading source in the micronutrient SELENIUM. It has roughly about 22 micrograms of it per 3 ounces of meat. The RDA for Selenium in Adults is 55 micrograms a day which really is not a lot. Why does this matter?
When Selenium communicates with concentrated amounts of Iodine (found mostly in seafood) in the body it can boost the thyroid glands T cell output enough to boost metabolic efficiency temporarily. This means whatever you are working towards might happen slightly faster if you do keep chicken in your diet and if you don't eat it and are not opposed to trying it, maybe it's time to!
Roughly 9 ounces of chicken can get you to your RDA for selenium which is not a lot of chicken really. This is great news! This means it's an obtainable goal for most people who are working on a health goal of their own. If you are attempting to burn fat the fat may burn quicker! If you are attempting to gain muscle the yokedness
May happen slightly faster.
To end this ode to chicken, I will say all protein sources out there have a unique reaction In the human body and the each have unique properties. Continuously vary your sources keeping in mind why we love chicken!
