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).

Wonderful Bone Broth

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. Childhood Memories As a kid, I remembered my mother saving bones after Thanksgiving, Christmas or any other […]

3 and 1/2 Months of Low Carb Eating

| December 12, 2012 | 0 Comments

One thing I learned about the low-carb journey is that it’s a journey of constant tweaks. In my first month the low-carb I went hog-wild eating fats. I totally changed my eating habits to something that was foreign to my body. The immediate influx of large amount of fats took some getting used to. I […]

The other day my brother asked what was the one thing I miss since embracing the low carb way of eating. I had to think for a minute because my transition wasn’t a difficult one. After a moment of thought I had to say I missed the occasional slice of bread and butter. Having said […]

It wasn’t until we had an overnight guest over the Thanksgiving weekend did I realize just how much my nightly sleeping has improved. Let me see if I can explain this delicately. My husband and I are of the age where we are feeling the effects of health mistakes we made in our youth. Some […]

Lower Carb Thanksgiving

Lower Carb Thanksgiving

I’d like to say we enjoyed a low-carb Thanksgiving, but I’d be telling a halftruth. Actually, we enjoyed a lower carb Thanksgiving. I modified the ingredients on some foods and didn’t cook others to reduce the carb load. However, not everyone at my Thanksgiving table is on a low-carb eating plan so I made a […]

I Love Jicama

I Love Jicama

| November 18, 2012 | 0 Comments

Jicama (pronounced Hik-A-Ma) looks like something you move out of the way of the lawn mower. The one I purchased looked like a huge light-colored rock. It was just as heavy as a huge rock. Cooked vs. Raw I’m sure cooked jicama works just fine for some dishes. My initial venture into jicama land was […]

The other day we stopped at the diner for breakfast. Hurricane Sandy had knocked our power out so the diner was a quick and easy solution to the breakfast challenge. Being a low carb foodie, I ordered the smoked salmon and cream cheese on a bagel, but told them to hold the bagel. The meal […]

Since going low carb I continually look for evidence confirming I’m doing the right thing.  Aside from my improved health, reduced blood pressure and normalization of my blood iron count (previously suffered with bouts of anemia if I forgot to take my iron tablets), I love reading about the benefits of low carb eating.  What […]

Since reducing my carb intake I feel great! I no longer think of this as a dietary change. I think of it as a way of life. Just like some people don’t eat radishes or broccoli or liver, I choose not to eat foods with a high glycemic index. In other words, in general I […]
