Yoga, cranberries and the secret to making good tamales

Be sure to check out Sunday’s Healthy Living section, which will feature a story on a new yoga studio in north Stafford County that’s offering a big variety of classes, including hot yoga.  The section also will include a column from dietitian Jennifer Motl about why it can be smart to drink cranberry juice.

And if you’ve ever wondered how to make a good tamale, today’s Healthy Life Virginia can fill you in. The newsletter features a recipe from foodie Bryanne Salazar of Quantico, who says she picked up the “sacred tamale knowledge” from a friend.

Parents, especially, might be interested in a few other stories in today’s newsletter, including one on a survey showing that parents accept the majority of the blame for childhood obesity; and another on over-the-counter drug abuse among kids. Click here to read today’s edition.
