Eating for Ethics vs. Eating for Health

I had a very interesting conversation with a colleague tonight.  It was about the choice of eating a plant based lifestyle and whether people will stick with it more for ethical reasons or for health reasons.  I was first introduced to plant based eating as a moral/religious choice when I was a child.  We hadContinue reading “Eating for Ethics vs. Eating for Health”

A Little Lost?

Hey there!  How’s it going?  I read an article a little bit ago, and it reaffirmed something I all ready knew and a bet you do too.  Unfortunately, I did not write the name of the article or the author (something that I am sure the author would appreciate and I need to be inContinue reading “A Little Lost?”

Are You Keeping Yourself Tuned In?

Good Afternoon!  How are you  doing today?  I have to say for myself vacillating between pretty good and fabulous.  I’m asking you this question because we have a tendency to tune ourselves out when we really need to be listening inwards. What are you talking about Adrienne?  Glad you asked.  I came across this thoughtContinue reading “Are You Keeping Yourself Tuned In?”

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?”
