Food

I think I’ve found the resolution to my gardening problem. First let me explain the problem. The problem is too many critters. Between the squirrels, ground hogs, deer and any other 4-legged creature living in the northeast, my garden just doesn’t stand a chance. I once tried growing tomatoes on the porch (at least the… Read More

Raw Oatmeal Recipe

Making a bowl of raw oatmeal is easier than cooking it. It takes half the time and half the cleanup. I’m not 100% raw by any means, but since I’ve decided to take a trip on the road to raw eating, I thought it important to figure out how to make a raw breakfast. I… Read More

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… Read More

We Are What We Eat

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… Read More

Week 3 or 4 (?) Update

Calendar

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

Beef

Several hours ago Associated Press reported that Tyson has recalled 131,000 pounds of ground beef because it was contaminated with E. Coli. This on the heels of the cantaloupe recall issued by Jensen Farms a week or so ago because of the deadly Listeria bacteria. We’ve had recalls before and there will be more to… Read More

Keeping it Realistic

Keeping it Real

It’s human nature to go overboard. Well, it might not be human nature, but it’s my nature. Knowing that I have this tendency to enjoy too much of a good thing, I have to keep my real food adventure in check. Here’s the Story: My daughter told me late at night that she had invited… Read More

What’s on Your Plate?

I was roaming around aimlessly on the internet this morning and came across a few articles that saddened me. After reading these articles, I realize just how important it is to know where your food comes from. The modern way of shopping means we develop a relationship with the people behind the deli counter, the… Read More
