When I grew up, Saturday entailed us mowing and weeding.  Not quite my American dream, or that of my brothers as young teens, but we had a lush green lawn and it was every suburbanites dream. To some, a lawn is the crowning glory of their South Florida home. Yet to others it is a tremendous hit on their checkbook.

Everyone loves the appearance of an impeccable lawn.  Don’t you enjoy the smell of fresh cut grass and the feel of it under bare feet.  The cost to maintain it, mowing, edger’s, mowers, aerators, chemicals and fertilizers.  This is the bare minimum to achieve a beautiful lawn or hiring a lawn service.

Lawn service can be a tremendous hit on the checkbook. Studies show that well maintained landscaping can add 15% to the value of a home.

A healthy lifestyle is crucial to a long and healthy life. Developing healthy eating habits is not as baffling or as restrictive as many people imagine. The essential steps are to eat mostly foods derived from plants such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains and legumes and limit highly processed food. Most people in Palm Beach County strive to have a healthy lifestyle.

Vegetarian diets are low in cholesterol, saturated fats, high in fiber and folate, with zero animal protein.  It has been studied that in western countries most vegetarians live longer than most non-vegetarians live. They have substantially reduced risks for heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure and reduced risks for such cancers, particularly lung cancer and colon cancer.
