Dear Friends and Members,
August is upon us – and that signals the closing of summer. The kids are heading back to school, but why not do some back-to-school shopping of your own and join us for a shopping spree!? See below for information about our Athleta shopping party.
Our new space is about to undergo a facelift – although nothing much will change on the outside, the inside at 1558 Ben Sawyer will take on a whole new look. We’re about to begin tearing down walls, raising the ceiling, and changing up the flooring in our new home. Keep checking our Facebook page for photos chronicling our progress!
And keep reading – there’s lots to say this month!
Always Busy? 8 Ways to Stay Fit . . .
Wouldn’t it be nice to have every day be one of those “perfect” days? You know, the kind of day that includes a peaceful walk in the park, a heart-pounding workout, a playful few hours with the kids, and healthy, delicious eats at each meal-all the good stuff, in other words.
While somewhere in a far off land that may be reality, here on planet Earth, it’s not. Most of us spend our days meeting deadlines at work, shuffling the kids to and from school (and soccer practice, ballet, and baseball too), and hoping to have the chance to actually sit down for a meal. Click here for 8 everyday tips that work for busy people . . .

Staff Recipe File – from Sarah’s kitchen! Grilled BBQ Chicken, Zucchini and Corn Quinoa Salad
1 pound boneless and skinless chicken breasts or thighs
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup bbq sauce
1 pound zucchini, quartered lengthwise
2 ears corn
1/4 cup feta, crumbled
1/4 cup green onions
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
1/4 cup bbq sauce
1. Bring the water and quinoa to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the quinoa is tender and has absorbed the water, about 15 minutes, remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes, covered.
2. Season the chicken with salt and pepper to taste and grill or pan fry it over medium-high heat until cooked through and lightly golden brown, about 4-6 minutes per side, before setting aside to cool, slicing and mixing in the BBQ sauce.
3. Grill the zucchini and the corn until cooked and slightly charred, about 2-3 minutes per side.
4. Cut the corn from the cob, assemble veggies and chicken over quinoa, and enjoy!
Extra BBQ sauce may be added as “dressing,” and try adding flavorful garnishes such as feta, cilantro, and scallions!
