Holidays, Carbs and Joint Pain

Holiday Eating

During the holidays, my usual health resolve weakened. I let my guard down and abandoned some of my usual healthy habits.

Wonderful Bone Broth

Crock Pot

I can’t believe how wasteful I’ve been over the years. I recently discovered bone broth. Maybe what I should say is I’ve re-discovered bone broth and cringe when I think about the number of bones I threw away.
