Fish Fry Fund Raiser

Radio Maria’s Fish Fry this past Friday was a great success! There were enough plates for everyone and plenty volunteers to keep everything moving. Thanks to John Tumminello, the Knights of Columbus Council 3200, and all the other great volunteers for this fun and beneficial event. And especially for those that purchased a plate to help Radio Maria. Thank you!

July 13, 2013 РWhat’s Wrong with Teenagers’ Diets?

Many teenagers today live on dead-food diets, eating only junk food, processed food, or baked or fried snack food. Few of them eat anything that is real, live, and fresh. Most adolescents get their fruit from fruit juice rather than from whole, enzyme-rich, fresh fruits and their vegetables from fried potatoes! In the years between 1965 and 1996, soft drink consumption in the United States increased by nearly 300%. Sadly, a 2010 study found that 40% of all the calories consumed by children aged two to eighteen years were from empty calories-that is, refined sugars and solid fat with half of those calories coming from soda, fruit drinks, dairy desserts, grain desserts, pizza, and whole milk (rather than reduced-fat milk). But true health can only be obtained through proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. When we go against the laws of God, polluting our bodies and our minds, the result is an imbalance, a dis-ease of bodily function, and that leads to a diseased body or mind. This episode will discuss the specific foods teenagers are consuming, while offering healthy alternatives.
