Felicia has learned the hard way that health, whether good or bad, is a result of daily choices and habits. On this blog Felicia shares what she's learned and the healthier choices she now makes as a result of her new knowledge. She hopes to encourage others to experiment to find alternative solutions to nagging problems (she's also is a bit of a tree hugger and likes to share ways to lighten the toxic burden on the environment).

The other morning I ran out of creamer for my coffee so I took a quick run to the local Hannaford’s grocery store. I usually buy heavy cream produced by Hudson Valley Fresh but Hannaford’s didn’t have any. I didn’t feel like traipsing across town to track down Hudson Valley Fresh (not too many stores […]

A little over a month ago I made my first batch of bone broth. Since then I make sure to keep bones brewing daily. When I finish with one batch, I get rid of disintegrating bones and add one or two new bones in place of the old ones and start another batch. Making Bone […]

Wonderful Bone Broth

I can’t believe how wasteful I’ve been over the years. I recently discovered bone broth. Maybe what I should say is I’ve re-discovered bone broth and cringe when I think about the amount of bones I threw away.

3 and 1/2 Months of Low Carb Eating
