Sugar and Heart Disease

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. […]

A Food Refresher! What not to eat…

I don’t know about you but during this “COVID-19” time I’ve kind of let my guard down a bit in the “nutrition” end of things. I’m being very careful in all of the other ways to avoid Covid but we’ve been a little free spirited with our diets. I believe this is because we are […]

Is it ignorance or fear?

Why are there people out there who don’t seem to care one little bit about COVID-19? They seem to be oblivious to the fact that our world, the entire world is in the middle of a very serious “pandemic”. It angers me when I watch some Canadian news stories, but mostly I see it in […]

Black Licorice

Do you remember back to the days of “Twizzlers” licorice sticks? I sure do. It was a memorable sweet treat we would chew on and share with our friends. Back when I was a youngster I remember my parents bringing me a “goodie box” to camp and it usually had a package of licorice in […]

Bone Health

This topic is not something I paid too much attention to over the years. I just assumed that because I was eating healthy I was looking after my bone health. Did I get a big surprise. Not being able to walk and put too much weight load on my bones over the past 12 years […]

Turmeric is the spice that gives curry its yellow colour. It is a spice that has been used in India for hundreds of years. It contains compounds with medicinal properties. These compounds are called curcuminoids and the best of those is “curcumin”. I have posted about turmeric before but I think it is worth repeating. […]

Hydration

Are you hydrated enough? It’s amazing how many body functions are affected by not drinking enough water on a daily basis. I am guilty of not drinking enough water. I’ve been told by health and wellness professionals that I need to drink more water. I frequently shy away from drinking too much liquid throughout the […]
