What’s in Your Sour Cream?

Never take a food nutrition or ingredient label for granted. I was shocked and surprised when a brand that I have trusted for years threw me a curveball. Actually, it was my own fault. I got complacent. It all started a few years ago, back in 2013 when I went to purchase heavy cream for… Read More

Adopting a ketogenic lifestyle is simple in theory. You just drop the carbs and increase the fats. What could be more simple than that? Well, in theory it’s simple, but in practice, it’s a little tricky. The problem arises when you’re not quite sure of the macronutrient makeup of the foods you’re eating. This is… Read More

Blurry Vision

From my experience, I think adopting a ketogenic lifestyle will cause temporary blurred vision in some people. I noticed that after I went on an LCHF ketogenic way of eating my vision started to get blurry. I wear reading glasses and at times they didn’t seem strong enough. There were times I would put them… 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.

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

Getting Ready for 2017

New Year 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

Celery

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… Read More

I don’t know if there is scientific proof that red meat contributes to menopausal hot flashes, but I do know that I gave up red meats a little over a month ago (June 18th) and within a couple of days the flashes began do diminish. After a couple of weeks they only occurred once or… Read More
