It’s been quite some time since I’ve had to deal with the excruciating pain of sciatica. Whenever I felt that all too familiar twinge, I’d massage the back of opposite hip and it would go away. I learned that trick from my acupuncturist. When I first went to my acupuncturist in obvious pain on my […]

This year is a particularly bad year for hay fever sufferers. I’m not sure if the lack of rain has much to do with it, but things are pretty bad up here in the Northeast. The amount of dust and pollen being kicked up by my neighbor cutting his lawn caused me to run inside […]

I ask this question because my daughter recently had a conniption because she found bugs on her organic celery stalks. When I walked into the kitchen to find out the cause of the commotion, she, in a rather shrill voice exclaimed, “There are little black bug things on my celery!” My response, “Okay, wash them […]

I’ve decided to make snow my best friend this winter. Well, not really my best friend but a useful inconvenience. This winter we seem to be pounded with snow; anywhere from the nuisance 3-inch snow up to a couple of feet of snow. Instead of sitting home grumbling about the annoyance, I decided to put […]

A different spin on the classic lasagna is to cook it in your crock pot. The basic premise is the same. You layer the ingredients and then you bake. This time, however, instead of using pasta I chose to use sweet potatoes. Why use sweet potatoes? Simple, they’re nutrient rich and tasty. When I cook […]

Drink More Water
