How To Make Homemade Baby Food: Easy, Economical and Healthy

How To Make Homemade Baby Food: Easy, Economical and Healthy

Baby Food Cubes. Since I now have a child, I think I am turning into the “food police” (not that I wasn’t already).  Because I am “in the know” of what is in our food and water supply, I am very vigilant on taking steps to reduce my child’s exposure to toxins. One of those steps is feeding her organic food and using filtered water. Organic baby food costs approximately... [Read more]


Government Fueling Cheese Addiction

Government Fueling Cheese Addiction

Cheese Addiction:  Sounds Funny. But I’m Serious. It’s Real. When talking to people about cleaning up their diet, the number one food that is brought up is cheese. “I can’t live without my cheese.” Or, “Cheese is my main downfall.” Or simply the statement of surrender, “I can’t give up cheese.” It is never surprising to me, yet it seems... [Read more]


Eggs, Nutrition, and Cholesterol — Good or Bad?

Eggs, Nutrition, and Cholesterol — Good or Bad?

Are Eggs Good or Bad? The answer is “Yes.” Ah, the good ol’ egg. To eat or not to eat? There is a lot of contradicting information about eggs. And that is a HUGE understatement. Even cardiologists are giving out misinformation. “What?! Can’t Be!” You may exclaim. Of all people, shouldn’t they know the answer? Well, not necessarily. Most don’t study nutrition... [Read more]

Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution: Good Intentions, Could Be Better

Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution: Good Intentions, Could Be Better

I was excited when I first saw the trailer to the new network television series about healthy school lunch programs, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution. “Yes!” I thought, as I’m an advocate for healthy school lunches. “Now Americans can see how much of a positive difference can be made by changing school lunches!” But after watching the first episode, I was kind of... [Read more]


Most Restaurant Food High In Salt, Sugar and Fat

We happen to be living in a hotel for a couple of days while our home is being tented for termites. So basically, we are eating out for every meal, with the exception of snacks brought from home or purchased. And with all this eating out, we are discovering our tastes have changed quite a bit since we have been making our own food. Once Tasty Food, Now Not-So Great. It seems that restaurants that... [Read more]


When A Breakfast Burrito Is Healthier

When A Breakfast Burrito Is Healthier

“Free” Breakfast Doesn’t Mean “Good” Breakfast. We happen to be living in a hotel for a couple of days while our home is being tented for termites. The hotel provided breakfast. Granted, I’m not staying anyplace remotely fancy, so I didn’t expect much. But I at least thought I would have a decent selection of healthy choices, like maybe some fruit, cereal... [Read more]


Most Carbs Are GOOD! Processed STARCHES are Bad.

Most Carbs Are GOOD! Processed STARCHES are Bad.

Quit Calling Carbs “Bad!” I wish the media would quit misusing the word “carbs” (short for carbohydrates). I keep seeing the word “carbs” being used in a negative fashion: “Don’t Eat Carbs,” “Low Carb Diet,” “Carbs are Bad,” “Avoid Carbs.” Carbs this — carbs that. And in most all cases, what they are really... [Read more]


Global Warming: Deserts Expand. Drought Brings Death. (video)

Global Warming: Deserts Expand. Drought Brings Death. (video)

No Rain. Starting this post, I was about to begin with saying the “signs of global warming…” but I stopped and realized the appropriate word is “results” of global warming. As Michio Kushi mentioned in his lecture that I attended a few years back, deserts will continue to expand due to global warming. And that is exactly what is already happening in Africa — Kenya,... [Read more]


Could GM “Terminator” Seeds Ultimately Cause Hunger, Death, and the End of Life Altogether?

OK. I’ll try to make this quick. This morning, something dawned on me while I was thinking about Monsanto’s genetically modified “Terminator” seeds. If you don’t know, “Terminator” seeds are GM seeds that only produce once. Meaning, the seeds from the crops cannot be taken and planted to produce more crops. Instead, more seeds have to be purchased and planted.... [Read more]
