Cooking in the Kitchen with My Father

Food is fascinating. I love the art of preparing and eating good food, something I’ve recently embraced as a new hobby. One of the great benefits of cooking is feeling the connection I have with my parents and grandparents. I was raised by my grandmother and my parents and each had a different cooking style. They are no longer living, but I still have those memorable moments and think about them often while I cook. One of my favorite memories […]

The Importance of a Healthy Breakfast

Recently, my hair stylist was having a moment. It was well after 12 o’clock noon and she walked over to me after my dryer cut off and asked if it was ok for her to get something to eat. That was fine with me, but it was strange that she even asked. She usually ate something while I was sitting underneath the dryer, but this time, she had other clients and later confessed that she had waited too long to eat. It was […]

Waiting for My NutriBullet Rx!

I am getting a NutriBullet Rx soon and I am beyond excited about it! I have been making up soup recipes for about a year now and I will absolutely make full use of that machine. I wanted something to help my soup-making process along since I’m just starting this healthy eating and home cooking journey. Yes, in fact, my tomato soup has been a three-time failure. Each recipe has been a bit closer to the delectable soup I’ve been craving […]

Buy the NutriBullet

My husband finally convinced me that we should order the NutriBullet that he had seen on the infomercials during the wee hours of the morning. He had spoken about it several times, but I never saw the commercial and didn’t care enough to waste my time researching it. Well, let me tell you that I have seen the error of my ways and after having it just for one month I absolutely love it! First off, I’m disabled and exercise […]

I am pretty sure that my sugar addiction began the moment I was born because I cannot remember a day that didn’t go by when I didn’t have a sugar craving. When I was growing up, people were not as informed and concerned over what and how much we ate of anything. For 48 years, I consumed sugar on a daily basis. It never occurred to me that sugar could cause so many health issues. On the rare occasion when […]

Organic labels

Breaking news of e-Coli contamination, salmonella, pesticide and herbicide warnings, and even “Mad Cow” continue to put fear in our minds. How can we ever feel safe eating again? Food manufacturers stick labels on foods to make us think what we’re about to eat is “safe,” but what do those labels actually mean and should we trust them? Why Choose Organic? Generally, Certified Organic is the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) label verifying food is produced without the use […]

Obesity? Contagious? Well, not in the traditional sense, but turns out our eating habits are. We’re more likely to eat what our friends and family eat, so if they eat poorly we’re more likely to eat poorly, too. Makes sense when you consider how much time we spend with loved ones. Take a look at this infographic and then take a good look at your eating habits. Are you eating like those around you?

cacao

Well, sorta. Incorporating real cocoa – the dark stuff that’s been less processed – into your daily diet has actually been shown to increase your overall health. According to Dr. Will Clower Ph.D., consuming the right kind of chocolate has been shown to boost memory, attention span, reaction time, and problem-solving skills in a number of different studies by increasing blood flow to the brain.

I am 65 and have been overweight (250 lbs) since I was in my 40’s. Nothing seemed to get rid of those pounds. Working a desk job at night certainly made it harder to lose any weight. When I got the Nutribullet, I did not exactly follow any of the recipes, but made my own: in the mornings, I would have a fruit smoothie consisting of a handful of spinach, a banana, some blueberries, raspberries, strawberries or apples, some almonds […]

Transitioning from the Standard American Diet to Raw, Whole, Plant-based Foods  Americans continue to ask, “Where’s the beef?” According to the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations), total consumption of meat and dairy is projected to increase “substantially” by 2050. Despite abundant health research advocating meat’s demotion to only a supporting role on your plate, demand continues to rise and may eventually outpace supply. Proposed options to deal with this dilemma include more efficient, ramped-up production of […]
