Who would have thunk it? Bone broth for hay fever relief. Imagine that! I’ve been drinking bone broth off and on, but recently, I’d say for the past month and a half or so, I’ve been drinking it regularly. One mug of bone broth in the morning has become a daily ritual. There are so… Read More

Accepting My Natural Hair

As my hair begins to grow, it’s coming into its own. As I learn how to care for my natural hair I’m getting more used to it. As a matter of fact, I’m liking it. Imagine that…after decades of wishing my hair wasn’t like it was, I’m happy with the hair God gave me. That’s… Read More

For the Love of Healthy Hair

Since this blog is all about health, I felt it necessary to begin with a few posts on hair health. Realize that since I’m a woman of color I’m going to address it from my perspective. Some things may apply to other races/nationalities and some might not. Just wanted to get that out of the… Read More

I realize that I’m really enjoying food freedom. It took me several years (more like decades) to get here, but it sure feels good being here. I didn’t realize my current state of food freedom until my daughter came back for an extended visit. You see, she’s suffering from a case of bacterial imbalance in… Read More

Personally, I’d rather spend the money and time preparing food in my own home instead of suffering the accumulated effects of eating processed junk foods. The accumulated effects will land you in the doctor’s office if not… Read More

Frederick Douglass in his autobiography said, “Knowledge makes a man unfit to be a slave.” Maya Angelou said, “When you know better, you do better.” I bring the wisdom of both mentors with me every time I go food shopping. Their wisdom and my research has me shopping at no less than four and sometimes… Read More

Having suffered from sciatica pain for several years, I’m happy to say that it has been five years since my last knock down, drag out flare up and I’m working proactively to keep it that way. Now don’t get me wrong; Ms. Sciatica has tried to clear her painful throat a few times, but when… Read More

Getting Ready for 2017

It’s the end of the year and I’ve been looking through this year’s blog posts. That was real easy to do since I only had 2 blog posts in 2016. To extend my stroll down memory lane, I decided to look through 2015’s posts. That was a little more labor intensive since I had a… Read More

The recurring theme this growing season is “too much.” I sowed too many seeds and too close together. My organic garden is a jungle. The cucumber and squash won’t stop growing. They’ve overshadowed everything in their path. Aside from aggressively growing squash and cucumber, my tomato plants are taking off also. Actually, all of my… Read More
