Research for the Road

healthy monday headerThere’s no reason you can’t eat well while you travel!  Plan your meals they way you would plan your wardrobe or

loding: go online to find local eateries and menus, pack healthful snacks or schedule a supermarket trip when you arrive at your destination. Then come up with a plan for how you will fit healthful meals into your itinerary. If you’re planning an upcoming vacation or business trip, take time to consider your meals. Having an idea of what’s available will help you feel in control and  reduce your chances of overdoing it.  If you’re looking for sustainable food on the road, check out the Eat Well Guide.

 

Decatur Landmark Comes Down- Dairy Queen

Dairy Queen has been a landmark in Decatur and on many days people stood in line to get ice cream, sat out front or crossed the street to play in the Magnolia Tree.  Keep your eyes on this corner as it takes a new life in the great history of Decatur. Pictures taken by Gregory White this morning before some of the demolition took place.
