While we're thrilled to see those golden oranges and bright reds filling the tree tops since fall's arrival, we're even more excited to see everything turning a shade of pink for breast cancer awareness month. The more we all know about breast cancer, and the methods for prevention, the more lives we can save.
According to the American Cancer Society, "60% of breast cancers are diagnosed at a localized stage, for which the five-year survival rate is 98%." With self-breast exams starting in your 20s, and annual mammograms beginning at age 50, women are able to detect abnormalities and symptoms sooner and begin treatment earlier.
Examinations play a major role in prevention and detection, but one of the greatest things you can do to prevent the second leading cause of death for women (via the CDC) is take care of your body with diet and exercise.

A diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables is key to breast cancer prevention. So it's fitting that it's also vegetarian awareness month. This Asian-inspired vegetarian meal is hearty, satisfying, and rich in flavor thanks to the sriracha sauce, garlic, ginger, and variety of vegetables.
With this recipe you can totally fly under the radar - no one will notice it's meatless! Prepare as is, or try a variation using wild rice and your choice of salsa. Prep it in the morning and enjoy a delicious, comfort-food dinner when you get home in the evening.

With a long list of training certifications, his Body Sculptor studio in Atlanta (with a DVD series and potentially a new book), and several celebrity clients (including Justin Bieber) Dolvett's one of the most qualified trainers to ever work with the contestants on the hit reality show.
