Soy, Almond, or Coconut Berry Yogurt

By Eric C. Sharer, MPH, RD, CSO, CDN Berries

Research has shown that diet can play a big role in men’s health. Numerous studies have found that diets high in saturated fat such as animal protein, poultry, and various dairy products, and low in dietary fiber, can increase risk of various diseases and disorders such as heart disease, Erectile dysfunction, various cancers including colorectal and prostate cancer, and diabetes. Several studies also have found a link between dairy consumption and increased risk of prostate cancer. In recognition of Men’s Health Month, try this delicious non-dairy yogurt recipe which is rich in dietary fiber, dairy free, and low in saturated fat if you do not use the coconut milk yogurt. Enjoy this for breakfast by adding fiber rich foods such as ground flaxseed or your favorite nuts/seeds.

NIA Focus: Feet and Heel Lead

By Andrea Hersh, NIA instructor

Between the ages of 5 and 21 I took ballet and modern dance classes. When I walked, my feet were in habitual turn out. This was My Body’s Way of walking.I was proud of my ballet feet but eventually this caused me to have problems with my back.

It wasn’t until I started taking Nia in 2009, that I was shown that the body’s natural way of walking was in parallel.The healthy skeleton is built with the feet parallel directly under the pelvis.The Body’s Way of walking is the heel leads and then the whole foot comes down.If the foot is in turn out, the heel lead comes down on the side of the heel, throwing the pelvis, hips and spine out of alignment.This could cause eventual knee, hip and back problems.

I still catch myself walking with a slight turn out but quickly adjust my walk.When I walk now, my mantra is “heel lead, whole foot, heel lead whole foot, heel lead whole foot….”
