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

Lentil Sprouts

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… 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.

Getting Ready for 2017

New Year 2017

Acupressure

It’s been quite some time since I’ve had to deal with the excruciating pain of sciatica. Whenever I felt that all too familiar twinge, I’d massage the back of opposite hip and it would go away. I learned that trick from my acupuncturist. When I first went to my acupuncturist in obvious pain on my… Read More

Sneeze

This year is a particularly bad year for hay fever sufferers. I’m not sure if the lack of rain has much to do with it, but things are pretty bad up here in the Northeast. The amount of dust and pollen being kicked up by my neighbor cutting his lawn caused me to run inside… Read More
