I was live at the Northwest Harvest Cherry St. Food Bank location this morning. They showed me how they can feed a family of three for just 0.67 cents. Can you believe that? You can't even get a cup of coffee for that! They have big buying power from farmers all across the country that sell to them at big discounts ... they also rely heavily on donations from people like you.
With so many people out of work these days and losing their homes, it's more important than ever that we band together to do what we can to keep our neighbors fed.
We've made donating really easy this year. You can be in your bed in sweats or at your computer at work. All you have to do is text the word "Hometeam" to 85944 and a $10 donation will be sent - EVERY PENNY goes to feed hungry Washingtonians.
Do it. It's the right thing to do.
There were many many people in line waiting for this food.
We need your help folks. Please donate today.
Make it a great day!

500 lbs of turkey
90 lbs of croutons
300 lbs of potatoes
300 lbs of yams
90 lbs of cranberry sauce
1200 dinner rolls
That's how much food he will be serving as he welcomes 600 guests (all from needy families that might otherwise not have Thanksgiving or dinner at all for that matter) into his restaurant for a 3-course sit down Thanksgiving meal. The 8th Annual Holiday Dinner offers needy families a fine dining experience. Many of these people have never dined in a white tablecloth establishment before, and Chef Howie doesn't make them line up. They are given a 'reservation time' and greeted at the front door as if they were regular paying customers.
The guy has given away 2-million dollars in gift certificates - truly amazing! Attaway Chef and Happy Thanksgiving to you!

Thems are some good lookin' chains right there
We also learned the difference between studded tires, non-studded winter tires, and the all season variety. Bottom line: go to talk to your tire guy and ask because it goes on a case-by-case basis. How much do you drive in the mountains, do you want winter and summer tires, etc

While there's no doubt that the best way to keep accountable and on track is to have a trainer, many of us either don't want one, can't afford one, or don't have the time to get to their particular gym.
I'VE GOT SOLUTIONS FOR YOU! Imagine if you could click a button on your Smart phone and get in shape? Okay, well it's not that easy, but it's still pretty simple. There are thousands of Apps out there to download (some free, others are very reasonable) that have personalized workouts, videos, pictures of the exercises, and explanations to keep you motivated and moving - and we all need more motivation! You can do this on your living room floor for goodness sakes!
Not only are there workout apps, there are also nutritional apps as well that count calories, track hydration levels, calculate your BMI, and keep you accountable for what you're putting into your body and what you need to put more of into you body. Get it?
We were at Seattle Strength & Performance this morning with Trainer Jaison and Trainer Jay who are both awesome but totally crazy (in a good way). They kicked my rear end but everything that they had me do really worked. If you want a personal trainer GO SEE THEM!

The percussion sensation, Stomp!, has banged it's way to Seattle and boy am I excited about it! The hit show features 8 performers that play everything and anything that you would find in a junkyard or your garage ... brooms, garbage cans, poles, pipes, matchboxes, inner tubes, paint cans... you name it, they can make beautiful noise out of it! And between you and me, all they do is play...all the time. From the moment we got there until the second we left, they just wanted to play like we were kids on the playground ... it was awesome!

Winter is coming and I can already feel my skin drying out like leftover fruit. Does that happen to you too? My hair gets brittle, my face dries out, and my heels crack. Sound familiar? Well ... I've got solutions for you! This morning I was live at Salon Voda on South Lake Union in Seattle learning tips and tricks to stay supple this winter. The crew over there is awesome and they are going to offer King5 viewers 50% off the "BioLustre" hair treatment until the end of November!! Get beautiful hair for Christmas!
CLICK HERE TO SEE ME WITH ROCK HARD HAIR - TOTALLY HILARIOUS!
So after trying out the salon treatment we hooked you up with some awesome home remedies! Check em' out:
Dry / Cracked Heels: something we all deal with in winter (men...you too!)
- Take lotion or baby oil and slather it on your feet. Put a plastic bag over top of that and cover your feet with the fuzziest socks you can find. Go to bed. Do that for 3 days and your feet will feel like a babies bottom!
- Men (and anyone else that shaves their face). Make black tea, dip a cotton pad in it, and dab it on your face where you would shave. Ahhh soothing...
Homemade Face Mask (you can use this on your hands too)
2 1/2 oz organic yogurt
1 Tbsp carrot juice
1 Tbsp organic honey
Tbsp ground almonds
1 tsp whole milk
Apply mixture and let set for 20 mins. Remove with warm water and moisturize. AWESOME!
