The Freezer: My Blast Haven

The freezer is a great way to keep produce; it adds a nice chill to your NutriBlast and keeps much longer than storing it in the refrigerator. When I go to the grocery store, I already have a good idea of what I’m putting in the freezer the minute I get home! For instance, I know exactly what I have to do when I buy beets. Wash, peel, cut (into chunks), and freeze. I like the taste of pineapple and after […]

Hello, I’m back from surgery! Back from writer’s block, too. Diagnosed with breast cancer that wasn’t really  breast cancer (loads of stage zero, go figure!), I was lucky enough to have kind, talkative surgeons, wonderful, giving nurses and great support from my family and friends. Although the diagnosis necessitated a mastectomy, my surgery was complicated by non-health threatening issues and I’m scheduled for more surgical fun in the future. For now though, I’m pretty much as cancer-free as anyone can […]

Salad Dressing

I used to eat a lot of salad with a lot of salad dressing. I started buying salad dressing in bulk just to make sure I never ran out of it. I didn’t even realize that I had so many bottles until recently;  there were bottles in the fridge, in the kitchen cabinets, on the pantry shelves, and even in the fridge at work and in my desk drawer at the office. Did I really need this much salad dressing? […]

Boston-Marathon-2012-009-1024x768

This year, I challenged myself to participate in a five-mile walk for heart disease awareness. I’ve done this walk several times, but I’ve had some obstacles to overcome since then. I just didn’t realize that I would have to overcome some of my own negative thoughts. When I participated in 2011, I wasn’t in good shape. In fact, I was the very last person that finished that walk. I saw the police officers rolling up the tape and removing the […]
