What’s Eating You?

I can tell you what’s eating me.  Or rather what I am eating.  Or when I am eating.  Or why I am eating.  See, I can be a stress eater.  It was really cool a few years ago when I was at a meditation and one person there said “Don’t stuff your feelings/words/stresses back downContinue reading “What’s Eating You?”

Are We Setting Ourselves Up for Illness?

Hi There!!!  I was listening to Duke and The Doctor the other day, and Dr. McBarron was talking about cold sores, and the connection with corn. Corn is very high in argenine.  Argenine is buddies with the Herpes virus, therefore contributing to the eruption of cold sores.  Argenine suppresses Lysine, which retards virus growth/boosts the immune system.  Here is a great link that I foundContinue reading “Are We Setting Ourselves Up for Illness?”

Are Your Daily Vitamins Keeping You Young or Aging You?

I believe that everyone deserves the right to know what’s really in their food, and in their supplements so they can be absolutely sure they’re really getting what they paid for.  Do you? According to Dr. Linus Pauling, two-time Nobel Prize winner   “You can trace every ailment, every sickness, and every disease to a vitaminContinue reading “Are Your Daily Vitamins Keeping You Young or Aging You?”

Hunger Pangs or Mal- Nourishment?

This thought came to me this weekend while camping for the first time in my life.  Yes, here I am, almost 45 and I have NEVER camped.  But that’s beside the point.  It took me a week to figure out what I was going to bring for food (It was my son’s Cub Scout pack)Continue reading “Hunger Pangs or Mal- Nourishment?”

All Calories are Created Equal! Or Are They?

What do you think?  This was an area of conversation that came up in one of my Linkedin groups, which became quite controversial among the professionals in conversation. Is it okay to eat anything in moderation?  Doesn’t that give someone permission to consume anything?  Think of the consequences of consuming that sugar or fat. WhenContinue reading “All Calories are Created Equal! Or Are They?”

AFG – Avoiding Fruits and Goodies

I was playing around with my initials the other day, seeing what kind of acronyms I could come up with and this was one of them.  I liked it because these two food groups get put into the same category of sugars when they are not anything alike.

LOOKING FOR FOOD IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES

Does anybody remember that song from the ’80’s?  Only it’s ‘Looking for Love in all the Wrong Places’.  I feel that way some days when things just aren’t right.  I know what I need to be eating, I just look in the wrong place.  Or rather I give myself permission to look in the wrongContinue reading “LOOKING FOR FOOD IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES”

The Comfort Zone

Pretty powerful words, aren’t they?  We all have our comfort zones and we like them!  Some of them are important for survival, some are feel good and others are not healthy.  I say that because when a comfort zone causes complacency, it’s no longer a comfort zone. I think you have probably all ready comeContinue reading “The Comfort Zone”
