    At a clinic in downtown Toronto the female employees are, in a manner of speaking, stockpiling breast milk. "We call it golden liquid," said Dr. Jessica Kim, director of Fusion Chiropractic and Integrative Health. "It’s probably more valuable than money here." 

    The office became a breastfeeding-friendly workplace (BFW) in 2008 when a massage therapist returned from maternity leave after just six weeks and wanted to continue nursing her infant. Kim and her colleagues consider breastfeeding the crème-de-la-crème of nutrition and fully supported the therapist. At three-hour intervals the massage therapist got comfy in the staff room to express milk. This Pied Piper of pumping inspired the clinic’s working women and, when they had their own babies, they expressed too. Now the clinic’s freezer is stuffed with baby bottles filled with the priceless fluid. (Labeled, of course.)

    Sometimes there are accidents. “People will literally cry over spilt milk,” said Kim, mother of two.

    “I’ve turned

    When it seems like everyone around us is divorcing (R.I.P Bennifer version 2.0, R.I.P. Miranda and Blake), it’s nice to see evidence that marriage doesn’t have to end in heartbreak.

    Reddit user magic976 posted some heartwarming photos of his parents, who recently celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary.

    To commemorate the occasion, the couple re-created two cute photos from their 1975 wedding day.

    The original photos were taken at the Redditor’s grandparents’ house while the re-creations were taken at the couple’s home, where they’ve lived for the past 30 years. But other than that – and a motorcycle upgrade – the photos are pretty spot-on, right down to the clothing.

    “Yes, it’s the same wedding dress and jacket my mom made for my dad,” the user wrote.

    If a custom-made jacket isn’t love, we don’t know what is.

    Is salad always best? Is red meat always bad? Is a thin crust pizza better than a bowl of pasta? Are appetizers ever appropriate? There are so many things to consider when trying to order healthy off a restaurant menu. All the questions can make a casual night out feel like a crap chute. In part two of my healthy restaurant rundown I’m taking a look at which popular dishes are the more nutritious choices.

    Caesar salad vs. cobb salad

    Why: People often assume that when in doubt, the best nutrition decision is to opt for a salad. But, that is not always the case. In fact, some salads have the same caloric and fat quantities as a Big Mac meal. From the toppings to the dressings to the cheese sprinkled on top, what first seems like a low-cal option can quickly turn into a dieter’s worst nightmare. Two of the more popular salad options are the caesar and the cobb; with the creamy garlic dressing and less of an assortment of veggies, most assume that the caesar is the king of unhealthy
