It’s Friday and many of you will be having sushi for one of your weekend meals. I eat sushi at restaurants a lot but also pick up some during the week at my local Whole Foods or Central Market that is already made because it’s healthy andÂ convenient. Â Sushi can be a great high-protein/lowfat meal if you make the right choices. But, there are so many options! Here is a a breakdown of what to order atÂ restaurantsÂ and be sure to watch the clip below where Â Lily JangÂ (CBS/KHOU) and I show you the best grocery store picks!Â …

This year, commit to making your (or your child’s) back to school routine more healthy! For many kids and college students – going back to school means you are actually more active than you have been during the summer. You may have to walk a lot on campus, play sports or participate in other activities. Being more active is great, but you need to make sure what you are eating (or feeding your kids) will fuel these activities and not cause weight gain. For starters, try to prepare all the meals yourself. School lunches are getting better and better, but the only way to control what you eat is to make it yourself. In the videos below (featured on CBS), I show some of my favorites for school lunches, snacks and foods to boost brain power.

I’ve been busy training the Rockets Power Dancers (NBA Cheerleaders) this summer and we wanted to give you a little insight into how hard the girls actually train. The workout with me 2-3 times per week and we do a vareity of exercises that will be shown in our new workout series “How to Workout Like A Rockets Power Dancer”.

In this video Yasmine and I show one or our sample leg routines. For workout details, click on the Youtube link and view the description below the video.Â
It’s almost bikini season, so that usually means extra focus on butt (aka glutes) and abs! Glute workouts aren’t just for women – guys can benefit too. Also, having strong glutes will improve your running speed, prevent injuries and help support your core. My favorite exercises for glutes are lunges and there are a lot of ways to mix them up (see videos below!). Be sure to watch me and anchor Lily Jang every Monday on CBS! We are on 5:30-7am on local KHOU channel 11!
Many people don’t have access to farmers markets, health food stores or other organic grocery stores such as Whole Foods (my favorite). You can still makeÂ healthyÂ choices at chains such as Kroger, Wal-Mart, Tom Thumb, Randalls, etc. but you just need to educate yourself on the right products to pick. Most of these large chains have an organic section and sell many of the products I list below – you just have to look. If they don’t have them, ask for it. If the public (aka you) demands it – they will eventually have to carry it. Over the next few weeks, KHOU morning news anchor Lily Jang and I are going to show you some of the best choices to choose when you shop.
