Looking Back on 2018

Goodbye 2018

I think I’m over the whole New Year’s Resolution phase of my life. When I was much younger I’d start the year with a laundry list of resolutions and never get further than 30 days in sticking with them. Sadly, I’m not unique in this practice. I believe it was a couple of years ago… Read more

Locs – No Comb, No Chemicals

Locs

I feel some type of way when I see/hear/read about chemicalized locs. I do understand that not everyone was blessed with very kinky hair. I also understand that we live in an impatient society. The combination of non-kinky hair and impatience is what I believe leads people to resort to various chemicals when transitioning to… Read more

Sugar: The Legal Drug

Sugar Cubes

My daughter asked me the other day, “What do you think is the most addictive drug?” I thought about it for a minute and said, “Crack/Cocaine.” She nodded her head thoughtfully and then said, “The most addictive drug isn’t classified as a drug. It’s perfectly legal and it claims its victims very young. The most… Read more

How’s Your Non-Physical Health?

Serenity7

A Dose of Health is mainly about recapturing our health one choice at a time by creating healthy habits. When I first started this blog I wrote mainly about physical health in the form of nutrition and a little bit about fitness. When good nutrition and fitness became a daily habit, I then branched out… Read more

A Long Road to Health

Health Journey

The journey to health is a long and winding road (thanks Beatles), but it’s well worth the trip. It’s been quite some time since I’ve written anything here. The reason I haven’t written is that I had nothing to say. Also, I’ve been busy with a host of other projects. One of my other projects… Read more

Clear Vision

My birthday gift to myself was a large annoying eye floater, a few flashes and not so clear vision. What was going on? I turn 60 and WHAM! My body starts to give me the blues! At first, I thought the floater was an annoying bug that kept following me. After all, I was sitting… Read more

Wild Arugula

I have two gardens.  One is a raised bed garden out in the yard and the other is a container garden on my back deck.  The one on my back deck gets more TLC than the one in the yard. Since the container garden is right outside of the kitchen it’s easy to tend to… Read more

Roll of Bone Broth Fat

I’ve written more than once about the benefits of bone broth. Aside from being delicious, it’s healing. I’m writing about it again today to encourage you to keep the bone broth fat. Often times when meandering around the internet, I see great bone broth recipes. Unfortunately, some of the recipes advise readers to toss off… Read more

Avocado Salad

A few days ago my daughter explained a very simple ketogenic lesson to me and it became my “Aha” moment. The explanation was so simple, yet poignant. She said, “If you want your body to become a fat burning machine, you have to feed it fat.” That was it. That statement caused lightbulbs to flash, birds… Read more

Leggy Plants

My sprouted seeds have legs and that’s not a good thing.  Apparently leggy seedlings mean they’re growing long legs in an attempt to find quality sunlight. Fortunately, it’s a lesson I’ve learned early in the season so I can go back to the drawing board early enough and still have veggies this year. Growing from… Read more
