Omega 3’s and you

Who knew there were so many health benefits of Omega 3’s. When I started out grass finishing 14 years ago, I had been reading about the health benefits to the land, the animals, and humans in a number of places. Although, Omega 3’s are not the only benefit, they do seem to be at the […]

We have banned partially hydrogenated Vegetable oil but not GMO’s

June 16, 2015, the FDA announced partially hydrogenated oils (a primary source of trans fat) will no longer be allowed in food unless authorized by the agency due to its health risks. In  Dr. Mercola’s article today, I found out that the FDA banned Partially hydrogenated Vegetable oil (wow, what a switch). The driver here is it […]

“Don’t worry, Be Happy”

Remember that song by Bobby McFarrin from the late 80’s?  Had a nice beat and easy listening. Kind of a de-stressor. Dr. David Perlmutter, in his newest book, Braain Maker, describes how food affects our mood and almost everything else about our lives. The primary  “game changer” is the biology in our gut. Our micro-biome! […]

We have to take control of our own future.

How we live for the rest of our days and the future of our children and grand children is (has always been) in our own hands. Short term cutting of corners turns into a lifestyle of cutting corners. At least on the food level we have got to stop using the “bean counter” approach and […]

Be the best version of you … you can be

I just read an article on the twelve habits of exceptionally likeable people. When I finished, I said out loud, “That is just a good article. We all can use more friends in this day and age. The best way to get friends is to be a friend. I hope you enjoy the article as much […]

Your “one in a thousand” … In this case, maybe not so good:-(

According to Dr. David Brownstein, 1/1000 people have a “negative reaction” (see bolded symptoms towards the bottom of this post) when supplementing with Iodine. “But why am I supplementing with iodine in the first place?” A number of thoughts come to mind, but for a complete list, get THE BOOK. Iodine is a member of […]

Arsenic, it’s not just for breakfast anymore!

Here are some of the results of Arsenic levels found in foods by Consumer Reports. Note how these levels compare to the 10 parts per billion that the EPA has established as an upper limit for drinking water: Arrowhead Mills Organic Sweetened Rice Flakes – 963 ppb (!!) Della Basmati Brown Rice – 568 ppb […]

Sleeping Kitchen and the Seven Super Foods

Most of us are trying to stay, or get, healthy on a budget. This morning Dr. Mercola came up with a list of seven Super Foods we can all afford. Before, I write the list, I want to plug “Local” “Regenerative” “Nutrient-rich” Farmers. The Boise Farmers Market, located at 10th and Grove-just off the connector, […]

What is your favorite flavor of Pi(e)

Happy Pi Day! If you like numbers, Yesterday, March 14, 2015, should have been a good day for you. When written as a numerical date, it’s 3/14/15, corresponding to the first five digits of pi (3.1415) — a once-in-a-century coincidence! Pi Day, which would have been the 136th birthday of Albert Einstein, is a great excuse […]

Thursday Morning Ah-Ha

Some years ago, there was a Mensa Convention in San Francisco .. Mensa, as you know, is a national organization for people who have an IQ of 140 or higher. Several of the Mensa members went out for lunch at a local cafe. When they sat down, one of them discovered that their salt shaker […]
