Let Food Be Thy Medicine And Medicine Be Thy Food

Posted in Food, General, Health, Nutrition, Vitamins

Hippocrates said that way back (somewhere 431 BC). He has obviously been getting dizzy turning over in his grave as more and more centuries have passed only making our food choices and sources less than beneficial, let alone like medicine! Many of us (myself included) get into eating the same foods over and over and […]

Every day is a new start to the rest of the best of your life. What is it you have always wanted to do? What is it you know you need to stop because it’s an obstacle to what you really want? Take a few moments and reflect on your life, what will happen if […]


“cholesterol” from Tom Valentine, Facts on Fats and oils

Posted in Books, Food, General, Health, Nutrition, Vitamins

I’m going to share this as it is written from my “Nourishing Traditions” cookbook loaded with informative and interesting facts.  “Cholesterol is especially important to our brains. That’s right, today’s “most hated” substance is essential to the human brain function. In fact, infants need a constant supply cholesterol during brain development, which is why mother’s […]


Don’t neglect to stretch

Posted in Exercise, Fitness, Food, General, Health

When I was younger all I cared about was burning calories and weight control. Aging has taught me many things about priorities. Now my goal is first to feel good. Instead of eating to maintain weight, my number one objective is to eat to maintain optimal health. I don’t believe any one diet can give […]


Skin Care

Posted in Books, Food, General, Health, Nutrition, Vitamins

It is the time of year when many people have extra dry skin. I am a firm believer in “we heal from the inside out”, but while you are in that process you may need to choose something topical. I am always for as natural as you can be and avoiding medicines that have side […]


Body Composition

Posted in Exercise, Fitness, Food, General

Body composition and body weight have different value. A person could be thin but still have an unhealthy amount of fat because they don’t have a good percentage of muscle.  Muscle is healthy tissue.  Using resistance training is a great way to build muscle mass. There are numerous exercises that can be done to create […]


Benefits of a well balanced life

Posted in Exercise, Fitness, Food, General, Health, Nutrition

The benefits of eating well and exercising regularly and getting rest far outweigh the alternatives.  If we are burning our candle at both ends, eating on the go and never getting enough restful sleep, eventually we are going to crash and burn.  Quality proteins, I believe best from animal sources, fresh cooked and raw vegetables, […]


Nutrition is King

Posted in Fitness, Food, Health, Nutrition, Vitamins

Letting nutrition be king over just a craving is essential to maintaining optimal health and wellness. In America taste is all the rage while in some unfortunate places many people lack even having enough food, let alone the right foods. While America is rich in options we are poor with our selection. I hope to […]


Nutritional Support

It needs the B vitamins in balance to protect the heart by reducing homocysteine levels in the blood (homocysteine is a common amino acid found in the blood, high levels are related to early development of heart and blood vessel disease). Arteries and nerve […]


Patience is Positive

Posted in Books, Food, General, Health, Nutrition, Vitamins

Patience is such a positive quality to possess. I know I have a long way to go myself in learning to employ it. It is a valuable tool when we have dreams and visions for any area in our lives. I recently read a small book called “Stop Treating Disease, Start Building Health by Steven […]
