The majority of Americans are fruit and vegetable deficient! In fact, 70% of Americans are not getting enough fruit in their daily diets, despite the USDA Dietary Guidelines recommendation to consume four servings, or two cups, of fruit a day as part of an overall healthy diet based on an average 2,000-calorie diet. And, this includes kids too - according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, on any given day, 45 percent of kids eat no fruit and 20 percent of kids eat less than one serving of vegetables. Just in time for National Fruit & Vegetable Month (June), Registered Dietitian Elizabeth Ward shares tips for squeezing more fruits and vegetables into your diet.

Dubbed by Gourmet magazine as the “Year of the Home Cook,” families are being forced back into the kitchen by the economy. But unlike moms in the 70’s, today’s busy moms are faced with a new challenge – shoring up basic home ec skills that they might not necessarily have.
A recent Rutgers study – funded by the Canned Food Alliance – confirms that moms flounder when it comes to basic kitchen know-how. However, what the study also showed was when given a roadmap for healthy meal prep, grocery shopping, kitchen organization and food storage practices, positive changes were made.

FLASHBACK - "867-5309/Jenny" - Tommy Tutone
Tommy Tutone is a
power pop-rock band, best known for its 1982 hit " Jenny," which peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100. Although it is usually referred to as a San Francisco band, it was actually based in Willits, California, at the time that "Jenny" was released. The song became so popular that people in the United States to this day dial this telephone number and ask for Jenny as a prank. Regarding the famous number, "We had people threatening to sue us. It was the Buffalo Chief of Police's daughter's number in New York," said frontman Tommy Heath. Although the band is frequently remembered as a one-hit wonder, it had another top-40 hit on the Hot 100 with "Angel Say No" in 1980, predating "Jenny" by a couple of years. A common misconception is that Tommy Tutone is the name of the lead singer; it is actually the name of the band. Tommy Heath is the lead singer. The name of the band developed from its original name, Tommy and the Tu-tones, to merely Tommy Tutone.
