Why Be a Volunteer?
It’s not for money; it’s not for fame,
It’s not for any personal gain.
It’s just for love of fellowman,
It’s just to lend a helping hand.
It’s just to give a tithe of self. That’s something you can’t buy with wealth.
It’s not medals won with pride.
It’s for that feeling deep inside.
It’s that reward down in your heart.
It’s that feeling that you’ve been a part
Of helping others far and near
That makes you be a volunteer!

Don’t Leave Meals to Fortune
A meal of rice, vegetables and chicken at a Chinese restaurant certainly sounds like a healthy option. What often sabotages the feast are some of the hidden calories in many of the dishes along with the extras that accompany them.
Egg rolls – The health benefits of the vegetables inside lose out to the deep-fried wrapping. One egg roll contains 160 calories and 5 grams of fat. Choose a spring roll instead. The dough is typically thinner so you’ll eat 100 fewer calories per serving. Plus, you’ll consume less sodium.
Crab Rangoons – Best to avoid this combination of cream cheese, dough, and grease (after being deep-fried). Two rangoons will set you back 210 calories and 11 grams of fat – 6 grams of which are saturated fat. A better choice would be any of the soups. Most have fewer than 100 calories per cup. You will, however, be exposed to an abundance of sodium.
When it comes to the entree, your best bet is a stir-fry dish with non-breaded meat. Be aware that sodium levels will still be high, but at least you’re avoiding excessive fat.
Best entrees (with pulled, stir-fried chicken):
Chicken with Broccoli
Chicken with Broccoli
Kung Pao Chicken
Kung Pao Chicken
General Tso’s Chicken – With breaded and deep-fried chicken, this meal can contain 1,500 calories and 88 grams of fat.
Sweet and Sour Pork – The sweetness is a result of the 16 teaspoons of sugar per one-cup serving. That’s the equivalent of two chocolate bars.
Orange Beef – This entree has more calories than seven fast-food hamburgers.
Additional tips to keep the meal healthier:
Avoid fried rice which is white rice fried in oil and doused in salty soy sauce to give it the brown coloring.
Ask for chopsticks to help slow your eating pace.
Put half of your meal in a to-go box right away to help with portion control.
For dessert, go ahead and enjoy the fortune cookie. It’s a small portion at 30 calories per cookie.
