Magnesium

I have posted about this mineral before but it’s always worth a refresher on the topic. Every evening in my after dinner ginger tea I add a serving of “Calm”, a powdered, unflavored magnesium supplement. The ginger tea is healthy in and of it’s self but adding a scoop of magnesium powder ups the nutritional […]

Our bodies are mostly water….the brain, heart, lungs, muscles, kidneys, skin are all high in water. Even our cells are mostly water. Regular day to day body […]

Swiss Chard

You’ve heard the recommendation to get something leafy green in your diet every day. I try to have a big green salad everyday to ensure I get that “green” food into my system. Green is good. Dark leafy greens are among the most nutrient dense foods you can eat. Lately I have been in a […]

Pomegranates!

It’s the season for pomegranates. I have always loved this beautiful fruit. I remember my Mom buying me pomegranates when I was young. I still look forward to this time of year when fresh pomegranates are available in the grocery stores. The job of breaking the fruit open and seeding it is not my favorite […]

This post is as much a “REFRESHER” for me as it is an informative bit of information for my readers. During Covid-19 I have been leaning into more sugary treats. I’m not alone when I confess this. Sugar is a “comfort” food that is easy to love and get hooked on. It’s basically a drug. […]
