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

egg sandwich

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… Read More

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… 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

Cabbage

I know, the first thing you think of when someone mentions raw cabbage juice is, YUCK! I did too until I tried it. Some time ago I struggled with low stomach acid. To repair the condition I took Betaine HCL pills. The theory being that HCL taken with meals provides the necessary acid for the… Read More

The 100 Year Lie

100 Year Lie

I just got through devouring The 100 Year Lie  by Randall Fitzgerald.  Once I started reading the introduction, it was difficult for me to put the book down.  For three days, I read as much as I could when I could.  When I got through, all I could say was, “Wow!  Preach it brother!” Mr… Read More

Grass Fed Beef

It’s funny how things change. Not too long ago I was attempting to transition to a raw food diet. While I still see some merits to eating raw, I realize 100% raw is not for me. I think I captured my true mindset in my vegetarian, vegan or whole food post. As I was roaming… Read More

Week 3 or 4 (?) Update

Calendar

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… Read More
