After filling my head with more information than I could stand, I decided it was time to do something. Before I go any further, here’s a tip; although we shared the titles of food documentaries in the About Real Food post, don’t do like I did and watch all of them over a period of […]

Finding Real Food

| September 8, 2011 | 0 Comments

Throughout this blog I’ll be using real food and whole food interchangeably. It is my opinion that most of the food found in the average grocery store isn’t real. It’s got more chemicals, preservatives and additives than real food. Let’s take Cool Whip for example. Wired magazine did an article about its ingredients. No sense […]

If you or anyone you know eats food, you should be aware of the information contained in the movie “The Future of Food  .” Realizing how important it is to get this information out to the general public, the creators of the movie have made the movie available for free (without commercial interruptions). The movie […]

This post used to be the “About” page on a blog I recently created. Instead of continuing with the new blog, I thought it would be better to combine the contents of that blog with this one.

Let me start this post by saying that I do not have a medical degree nor am I a medical practitioner.  I’m writing this post as one who used to suffer terribly from heartburn during the holiday season.  Year after year it seemed like I had an internal the alarm clock that was set to […]

In 2006 I had my first confrontation with hot flashes. At first I didn’t know what the heck was going on. It couldn’t have been hot flashes, I was way too young (or so I thought). After coming to the shocking realization that I was actually having hot flashes, I started doing some research on […]

I happen to be a fan of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Often times I make my own peanut butter by grinding peanuts, almonds or even cashews in my Magic Bullet. I add a drop or two of olive oil for consistency and there I have it…peanut butter. Although I knew the peanut butter was […]
