A Year Into the Journey

I started this blog a year ago, and what a journey it’s been. I’ve delved deeper into nutrition and health than ever before in my life (and I’ve always been interested in health!). Oh. My. What a whirlwind. The best part of this journey has been unearthing information that I could never find before. I am…

Blackberry Cobbler “Porridge”

We are out of milk, yogurt, and fresh fruit, I didn’t soak any cereal grain, and Little Boy doesn’t like eggs, so I had to get creative with his breakfast this morning. I did have some walnuts soaking on the counter and blackberries in the freezer…..hmmm….that would work! Blackberry Cobbler “Porridge” Large handful soaked walnuts…

Documentary Review: Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead

I watched this documentary last night, and boy do I wish I hadn’t had to give my mom back her juicer. Joe Cross is a successful business investor who lives in Australia. He loved junk food, and it was making him sick. He developed an auto-immune disorder that would cause spontaneous rashes to appear all…

The Fluoride Deception

This post is inspired by the section The Fluoride Deception on page 165 of Cure Tooth Decay by Ramiel Nagel. I used to believe in fluoride as a dental treatment that strengthens teeth and protects them against cavities. And why wouldn’t I? My fourth grade teacher had us swish with a red fluoride solution every…

There is Poison in My Mouth

I am absolutely horrified that I have eight amalgam fillings in my mouth, all of which were probably unnecessary at the time of placement and three of which I believe were a scam. They all contain approximately 50% mercury, the third most toxic known substance in the world (arsenic and lead are slightly worse). I’ve been…

How Much of Life is Spiritual?

Did you ever read Eat Pray Love? It’s a true story about a woman who “finds herself” by travelling to Italy, India and Indonesia (Bali): Italy to discover pleasure (much of it through food), India to discover God (while she lives in an ashram), and Indonesia to put it all together to find balance. There’s this…

A Day in the Diet

I realized when I wrote my last post that when I say things like, “I’ve gotten healthier as I’ve eaten more meat and more fat,” that my readers don’t know where I started from, so probably have no idea how much of those things I eat. To some, it might sound like I eat tons…

A Winter Without Illness

I wanted to make sure we were clear of cold and flu season before I wrote this post, for fear I would jinx it. It’s May now, so I think it’s safe to say that Little Boy and I are virus-busting ninjas! Let’s visit the past for a moment. Two winters ago (the one before…
