PREPARE FOR THE THE BIG DAY” WITH A VOLUMETRICS WEIGHT CONTROL PLAN ~ VENDOR FEATURE: BROOKE JOANNA BENLIFER, RD ON FOX5 NEWS 05.17.11
Tips and ideas for great and filling eating habits from nutritional health & wellness expert Brooke Joanna Benlifer, RD that will trim you down and keep you full as you prepare for your wedding day on San Diego FOX 5 News.

Instead of starving yourself or attempting an unhealthy fad diet prior to your wedding, think of food as a way to increase your vitality and help you be in peak condition for your special day. Studies show that the top 5 most filling foods (apples, beans, eggs, fish & popcorn) each offer unique health benefits!!
Apples, beans & popcorn are great sources of fiber and beans provide filling protein, too. Eggs and fish provide excellent sources of protein and eggs contribute Vitamin D, while fish such as salmon & sardines are an excellent source of metabolism boosting, heart healthy omega 3 fatty acids.
To fill up without filling out, give these easy food combos a try:
Protein smoothie
Fruit & hard boiled eggs
Veggies & hummus
Salmon salad with Greek yogurt on a bed of greens
Air popped popcorn topped with Parmesan
You’ll be looking & feeling fantastic!

WEDDING VISION: VENUE ~ THE SAINT FRANCIS CHAPEL & SAN DIEGO MUSEUM OF MAN 02.24.11

SAINT FRANCIS CHAPEL is located in scenic Balboa Park on the south side of the California Plaza, across the street from the main entrance to the Museum of Man. Designed by Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue as an example of a Spanish Colonial church, the Chapel was built to add a religious note to the Panama-California Exposition of 1915.

The interior decoration was executed by Goodhue and Carlton M. Winslow. The Chapel is a blend of stark mission simplicity with tile floor, ceiling of heavy beams, and bench seating with an elaborately decorated gold leaf altar. The altar includes elegant modeled figures of the Virgin and Child, flanked on the left by Saint Francis Xavier and on the right by San Diego de Alcalá

The Saint Francis Chapel is one of San Diego’s favorite choices for wedding and commitment ceremonies. This dignified sanctuary is non-denominational, welcoming the services of all faiths.
