Optimal You

When I was a little kid, I was convinced if I concentrated hard enough, I could take off on a magic carpet and fly around the world.  Dragging my brother along for the “ride,” we laid one of my mom’s area rugs out on the front driveway, sat cross-​​legged, closed our eyes and visualized ourselves lifted off the ground.  As you can imagine, it didn’t take long for my brother to lose interest and my mom to demand her rug back!  Fortunately, I’ve managed to channel that misguided imagination and adventurous spirit into other endeavors along the way.  Although I have yet to levitate anything, I have learned a lot about defying gravity in other ways.  A recent article by my friend and colleague, Tina Van Horn, shines the spotlight on a superior you and a truly “magical” formula to help you soar.

Morphing Wing

When I was living in Texas, I toured the Johnson Space Center near Houston.  It was remarkable to see that iconic image of the Mission Control Center, NASA’s command center for Gemini, Apollo and Space Shuttle missions.  It is a surprisingly tiny room considering the magnitude of the accomplishments of both man and machine over the last 50+ years.  Today, NASA, the US Military and other private organizations continue to innovate.  The image here is an artist’s concept of an adaptive or “morphing” aerospace vehicle that can change their shape in flight to adapt to conditions and enhance flight performance.  Wouldn’t it be cool if we could adapt on the fly as well?  We can with the latest nutritional advancements for the 21st century.

Spiderman

I’m not much of a magazine reader but I have flipped through a Reader’s Digest or two while visiting relatives.  I go right for the clever short stories and jokes.  I even submitted an inadvertent joke my nephew made about superheroes when he was four years old.  He was describing all of their powers one evening to his uncle Mark.  His favorite superhero is Spiderman (mine too, actually!).  He shared every one of Spiderman’s powers in great detail.  When Uncle Mark asked him about the next superhero on the list, Spider-​​woman, Lorenzo innocently quipped, “Oh, she’s just like Spiderman only more complicated.”  It sure felt like a Reader’s Digest moment!  In a world of information overload, condensing a lot of information into a little space to make things more digestible still works.  What if you could do the same with your food choices?
