The Weight Loss Equation 

Did you know that there’s a pill you can take before bed that shrinks your waist by a few inches before morning? No? Well, that’s because it doesn’t exist (yet, anyway). Losing weight and keeping it off takes work. The equation is simple, but the process isn’t always easy. Healthy Eating + Exercise = A... Continue Reading →

Tastes like sunshine

Move over PB, there’s a new jar of goodness in town! I love peanut butter – on toast, in cookies, straight from the jar – you name it. So the first time I encountered SunButter, I quickly dismissed it. Nothing could replace my beloved PB. But a couple of months ago I thought I would... Continue Reading →

Bottoms up!

Snippet: Ground Cherries

Last week I received a produce delivery that was supposed to include ground cherries. I took out every item from the bag, but could not find my beloved cherries. Instead, there was a small bag of papery, lantern-like items that I thought I had received by mistake. I opened one and found what looked like... Continue Reading →

No bones about it

At first mention, the name “bone broth” sounds a little chilling and gruesome – it’s everything but. Remember when your grandma used to simmer an entire ham bone to make a pot of split pea soup? It’s all about the flavor and, in this case, the healing properties. Did you know that bone broth can... Continue Reading →
