Warm HeartsNov 19 2015
It's cold outside. For figure skaters, it’s also cold inside. (That is, until you warm up and start practicing—then it’s just right!) But still, after a couple of sessions—especially if you’re drilling rockers and counters and twizzles for a session or two—then you get a little chilly in your fingers and toes.
After a long (and fun) day at the rink, sometimes a cup of tea or cider or hot chocolate is just the thing that warms you up. (And check it out, apple cider is good for you.) Why not share some of that warmth with those around you? It’s almost Thanksgiving, and we are grateful for great parents, coaches, and friends. Say thanks to mom and dad for spending their day at your competition in the cold with their favorite hot beverages. (They’ve cheered for you all these years, haven’t they?) When you come to the rink for your lessons, bring a couple of hot drinks for your coaches. (They’ve spent days and weeks and months and years helping you reach your dreams, haven’t they?) And don’t forget your friends. (They’ve encouraged you, made you laugh, and been there with you every practice, haven’t they?)
We are thankful for skates and ice and figure skating. We are thankful for our memories and dreams. But we are especially thankful for the people who made them possible.

Apple Cider and Autumn's AntioxidantsNov 04 2015
The trees have changed colors and brightly colored leaves are scattered around under the clear bright blue sky. We are wrapping our warmest knit scarves around our necks and heading to the apple orchard. Turns out, it's good for us!
Maybe you love apple cider as much as we do. It's hearty and full flavor is about the only food in the world that can really sum up "autumn." More than just a treat, it is also one of the foods especially good for you. Apple cider's health benefits surpass those of clear apple juice. Jan Oszmianski, from the Agricultural University of Wroclaw in Poland, has studied clear apple juice in comparison with cloudy apple juice (cider). Utilizing a new technique called electron paramagnetic resonance, they effectively were able to compare clear and cloudy juice's polyphenol content. Polyphenols are a type of antioxidant that gives fruits their color.
The polyphenols are 2.6 to 5.3 times more in cloud apple juice (cider) than in clear apple juice. Cider is 1.5 to 1.8 times more powerful in antioxidant properties. Commercial clear juices (compared to the lab-produced clear juices used in the study) have one tenth of the antioxidants of cloudy juice.
Additionally, people who frequently eat apples have a reduced risk for lung cancer. Apples' polyphenols can reduce your risk of cancer and improve your brain function!
This fall, join us and enjoy some apple cider. It's the perfect warm drink after a day of chilly training at the rink! You'll know that not only are you enjoying the taste of fall, but you are also getting autumnal antioxidants and health benefits, too!
