Cami’s Corner: Eating healthy with Friends  Thanks to Melisa, Amanda and Danielle for sharing what you eat and being a part of Cami’s Corner and Teen Health in Maui!

Cami’s Assignment: Ask three of her friends what they eat for dinner with their families and then Cami’s response on maybe how they can make some healthy options!  Following with a few comments from me, Suzie


What is your typical family dinner? -Rice, beans, and chicken, with salad. Is the portion size typically a plate full, or what? -I go for one plate full, no seconds.

 Do you usually eat with your family together, or do you eat in front of the TV, etc? -It depends; we at least have a family dinner every week. I sometimes eat on the island, at the table, or in front of the TV.

Amanda’s eating habits are really good, one thing I would suggest though is to have less rice with her meal. Rice is fine, but in smaller portions. You do need your grains, Manda :) Cami, you are right!

Nice job guys. I’d like to next time learn about the true portion sizes of food and what kind of salad dressing is being used too. Sometimes the creamy ones are hidden with lots of fat and a gazillion calories!  I’d like to see the rice be substituted, with a multigrain rice or brown rice. Chicken is excellent protein as long as the skin is removed. Continue reading Cami’s Corner Teen Health on Maui Eating Healthy with Friends

Aging Gracefully and Naturally Skip the Plastic Surgeon!

Aging Gracefully and Naturally, Skip the Plastic Surgeon

SuzieMauiI discovered this article at a frequently reliable resoursce: WebMD. or  As an active, outdoor person, I am curious as to the findings of how non-surgical approaches can slow down the signs of aging. We know that exercise, lots of water, a good night’s sleep, being a non-smoker/accessive alcohol consumption and maintaining a healthy weight; all aids in a more natural approach to the Fountain of Youth. 

Of course, wearing sunscreen, managing stress and eating a healthy diet may keep Father Time at bay and keep the plastic surgeon away!

I’ve recently started exploring Omega 3 for my skin and hair, and also know the benefits that may help keep cholesterol levels in check. I also eat a fair amount of salmon.  Sleep is critical to me, so is applying lots of sunscreen when I’m on and off the water! Keeping young at heart and trying new things, playing my guitar, and enjoying all the sports that Maui has to offer,  keeps me young!   Think young, don’t at your age!  Suzie Cooney

Throughout the ages, people have been searching for the elusive “Fountain of Youth.” And this desire for a magical place, pill, or tonic that can prevent or reverse the effects of aging has sired a new, and growing, field of medicine — antiaging medicine.

These days, there is a plethora of alternative treatments touted as antiaging remedies from “magical” fruits, wrinkle-erasers, memory enhancers, and other supplements to transcendental meditation, special diets, and physiologic purification to remove toxins from the body.

But can you really turn back the hands — or crow’s feet — of time? Here’s what the experts have to say.

Bye-Bye Botox, Hello Blueberries?

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, more than 1.6 million botulinum toxin (commonly referred to as Botox) procedures were performed in 2002, making it the most popular nonsurgical procedure. By temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles, Botox has been shown to dramatically reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, or furrows, between the eyebrows. In fact, women with frown lines and crows’ feet are gathering in living rooms across the nation to get the shots that smooth facial wrinkles as Botox parties become the Tupperware parties of new millennium.
