What’s in Your Sour Cream?

What’s in Your Sour Cream?

| September 8, 2017 | 0 Comments

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 […]

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 […]

Does Ketogenic Eating Cause Temporary Blurred 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 a 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 […]

I’m Thoroughly Enjoying Food Freedom

I’m Thoroughly Enjoying Food Freedom

| March 3, 2017 | 0 Comments

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 […]

Sprouted Lentils – An Inexpensive Organic Staple

Sprouted Lentils – An Inexpensive Organic Staple

| February 2, 2017 | 0 Comments

One of the arguments against eating real organic food is that it’s expensive and requires too much preparation. 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 […]

Healthier Eating Calls for Healthier Food Shopping

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 […]

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 […]

How Far Away Have We Gotten from Our Food?

How Far Away Have We Gotten from Our Food?

| April 8, 2015 | 2 Comments

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 […]

Does Red Meat Contribute to Menopausal Hot Flashes?

| July 23, 2014 | 0 Comments

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 […]
