I went through the pantry, cabinets and refrigerator to get rid of products with questionable ingredients. Some of the questionable ingredients include, but are not limited to: Mono Sodium Glutamate (and all of […]

I’ve blogged about my bout with sciatica. It was an extremely unpleasant and painful time in my life. The pain and discomfort lasted for about a month to a month and a half. When I look back over my bout with sciatica I come to a rather startling conclusion. I think it was caused by […]

A Post Snowstorm Food Observation

There’s something to be said about healthy eating. Recently we were hit with an October snowstorm, which caused a power outage. Our outage lasted for 2 ½ days. During that time, the foods in the freezer remained frozen and I felt comfortable that they didn’t spoil. The temperature in the house hovered between 48 and […]

In an earlier post I discussed my bout with sciatica pain. I still don’t know what caused the pain, but I know for sure it’s very painful. Some folks suffer with sciatica flare ups for several months and even years. I read in one forum where one guy has been taking drugs for his sciatica […]

This is not a profound statement, and I’m sure we all know this by now. Just yesterday while I was at the mall, I met a man that personified the statement. He was in front of me at the check out line. He purchased several hundred dollars worth of workout clothes. He was a personable […]

OK, I’ve tried microwave popcorn, Jiffy Pop popcorn and air popped popcorn. I’ve got to say, hands down, that the best popcorn that I’ve had recently is Mr. Popping Cob’s popping corn. It caught my eye as I was browsing the shelves of our local farm’s store. It was a miniature cob of corn with […]

Let me start this by stating for the record, “I don’t want a dog.” I made that statement 7 years ago when we got Fido. My daughter wanted a dog and we went to the Animal Rescue Foundation and got our dog. Our dog is the sweetest, silliest, cutest, smartest, dumbest, knowledgeable dog on the […]

Week 3 or 4 (?) Update

| October 2, 2011 | 0 Comments

I’ve lost track of time. I’ve been having such a blast with this real food journey that I forgot to update my stats. Oh well, the heck with stats. I know I’ve lost some weight, increased my energy and drink coffee once a week (it’s a Sunday ritual in my house). The convenient one-stop-shopping days […]
