A new year marks old disordered eating habits masked as “healthy eating.” Every year until this year, my resolution was to lose weight. It’s important to note, however, that I have never faced weight discrimination in my life.

Historical and Cultural Good: McNay Art Museum This 24-room Spanish colonial-revival house turned art museum is really an artwork in itself. Wander around the maze of paintings, drawings, sculptures and more to escape the Texas heat on any given day.

Brent Gorman, executive chef for Trinity dining, used the skills he got from his family to become one of the top chefs in the nation. Gorman grew up in Greece, where his parents owned a restaurant, his mother ran her own art studio and his uncle owned a bakery. In the summer, Gorman worked for his uncle baking and selling pastries. At the same time, his mother taught him how to sculpt and paint. One...
