Himalayan Salt

I was just talking to my Mom this morning about what kind of salt she is using in her kitchen.   The white bleached processed table salt is not the stuff I would recommend to her or anybody. White table salt affects blood pressure, water retention and is just not good for you.    High […]

Vitamin D Deficiency

We are just coming out of our beautiful summer months full of sunshine.  Fall is underway and winter is not too far off. The sunlight vitamin, D, is so important to our health.  This is the “pro-hormone” that is produced in our bodies when we are outside in the sunshine.  Our bodies do not produce […]

Porridge – I look at it as a SUPERFOOD!

I read a study about “centurions” a few years ago and one thing they all had in common was that they all ate oatmeal (porridge) for breakfast every morning. I was recently talking with a friend of mine who also eats steel cut oatmeal every day for breakfast.  I shared with her a little bit […]

Turnips

With our Thanksgiving fresh in my mind, I’m reminded of a vegetable that we don’t include in our weekly rotation of vegetables very often.  It is often served at holidays along with the festive roast turkey dinner.  I never would have thought that this rarely eaten vegetable would be so good for you.  Time to start […]

Fall Cooking

I love fall.  I love the crisp air, the colours on the trees as the leaves get ready to fall to the ground, lighting candles to add warmth to my home, sitting by the fire with wooly socks on and a homemade blanket from my Mom over my lap. I love fall for the changes […]

The Brave Face of a Strong Woman

I get newsletters from a site called “LESSONS LEARNED IN LIFE”.  I enjoy reading both short quotes and longer messages like the one I’m about to share with you today. I receive messages from this site daily and it seems that when I need a pick-me-up or a reminder to be strong, I open up […]

Oregano Oil

I love this oil.   It’s strong and tough and works hard for me.  It’s an antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial, antiparasitic, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, digestive, anti-allergenic and more. Oregano oil goes with me everywhere.  It is in a tiny little bottle easy to carry in my purse.   A little bit goes a very long way.   It […]
