"Who's your Mama? I'm your Mama!"

Encouraging a rescued gosling to consider her its mama is all in a day's work for humor writer, animal lover, and fitness instructor Jane A. Schmidt. As a child Jane wore metal leg braces like Forrest Gump's, but she dreamed of an unfettered outdoor life raising animals.

Today Jane's living her dream. In rural Wisconsin, surrounded by ducks, geese, goats, cats, dogs, donkeys, and a pet pig, Jane writes books and leads clients on backpacking adventures. Her latest book is Not A Perfect Fit: Stories from Jane's World. To see how a determined woman crafted a life for herself that seemed out of reach, tune in this week to The Studio with Cheryl and Jane A. Schmidt.

Join host, Andrew Tint as he highlights the issues facing Generation Y.

This week Generation whY answers the first question in Human History, "can Milk Duds be made healthy"? Two weeks ago I challenged Fitness Superhero Miss Barbella, aka Tanell Pretorius, that she could not make God's chosen food, Milk Duds, healthy. Since Andrew Tint isn't the end all be all of judging chocolate, we luckily got a man who was, Noah Lion, of Noah's Rockin Raw ChocolateTune in live to find out if Milk Duds are going to be replaced.

Get "Blissfully Fit" on the Next GREAT TASTE!

Wild Rice SaladI knew it was a sign that Great Taste is right in tune with what's happening in America when I read an article in the NYT Monday entitled, "Preaching a Healthy Diet in the Deep-Fried Delta."  It seems that the National Baptist Convention is planning to have "health ambassadors" in every member church by September 2012.  Some churches have even established "No Fry" zones in their kitchens.  Frankly, this is great news as it's critical that organizations with influence on family life take an aggressive approach to educating their public about eating well.

Our guest this week, David Lee Sheng Tin, is a health coach and lifestyle consultant. who has developed the Blissfully Fit course.  He asserts that, "Bliss is a state of complete joy and/or happiness.  When you are blissful you feel contentment and serenity.  For Bliss to be maintained 24/7 a state of mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being has to be present."
