Avocado Salad

A few days ago my daughter explained a very simple ketogenic lesson to me and it became my “Aha” moment. The explanation was so simple, yet poignant. She said, “If you want your body to become a fat burning machine, you have to feed it fat.” That was it. That statement caused lightbulbs to flash, birds… Read More

Leggy Plants

My sprouted seeds have legs and that’s not a good thing.  Apparently leggy seedlings mean they’re growing long legs in an attempt to find quality sunlight. Fortunately, it’s a lesson I’ve learned early in the season so I can go back to the drawing board early enough and still have veggies this year. Growing from… Read More

I’ve been doing some behind-the-scenes work on my blog.  Apparently, it isn’t so behind-the-scenes since my email program sent a ton of emails to you regarding my work. I apologize. Please ignore those emails (yes…all of them)… Read More

Frankincense Essential Oil

Frankincense, like so many of the other essential oils, is a wonder oil! I think I’ll have to share more of my essential oil success stories. This story, however, was quite by accident.

Frankincense Essential Oil

With all of the benefits of using frankincense essential oil, who knew it was a natural cure for pink eye. Just recently I came down with a case of conjunctivitis, aka pink eye. I was unfortunate enough to have contracted it in both eyes. It didn’t take a visit to the doctor to know what… Read More

Knee Anatomy

What does it mean when your knee starts popping and swelling? Is it because of a tear in the meniscus or is it because of a maladjusted spine? At my age, I’m used to the sandy sound of chondromalacia, but the popping and swelling is a whole new adventure. When the Knee Popping Began About… Read More

What’s in Your Sour Cream?

Never take a food nutrition or ingredient label for granted. I was shocked and surprised when a brand that I have trusted for years threw me a curveball. Actually, it was my own fault. I got complacent. It all started a few years ago, back in 2013 when I went to purchase heavy cream for… Read More

My Fitness Pal

Adopting a ketogenic lifestyle is simple in theory. You just drop the carbs and increase the fats. What could be more simple than that? Well, in theory, it’s simple, but in practice, it’s a little tricky. The problem arises when you’re not quite sure of the macronutrient makeup of the foods you’re eating. This is… Read More
