The health benefits of incorporating Omega-3 fatty acids into our diet is nothing new. We have learned from other cultures that these fats are healthy. Some of these cultures such as the Inuit in Greenland eat as much as 40% of their diets in fat. However, these people have low rates of diabetes, heart disease and degenerative joint disease. The reason for this is their fatty diets are… Continue

I am a bit obsessive when it comes to feeding my kids. When I start looking at labels and realizing that EVERYTHING they eat has sugar, salt, and disgusting chemicals it just makes me crazy! Even so-called "healthy" foods like yogurt and granola bars are loaded with refined sugar and high fructose corn syrup. It makes me want to move to a cabin in the woods and feed the kids… Continue

I considered myself to be a pretty healthy eater until this past Tuesday when I attended a lecture called "Special Diets for Special Children." As if traveling and eating healthy wasn't hard enough, now I'm faced with traveling and supporting a special diet for my kids. Talk about pre-planning...

food make you feel afterward? After the holidays you may feel bloated,
tired and notice that you…

I took Elle and Bunny to the doctor the other day for their annual back to school physicals. Both girls are healthy and Bunny spent 20 minutes entertaining her pediatrician with her unique style, all the while lounging on the exam table with a paper gown draped around her like a sarong...this by the way has never happened before, I have never… Continue

It's Julies chief carer here , her hubby Pete, having read her latest contribution to the site regarding " Candida " I have realised I haven't been doing my job very effectively with relation to my juicing duties. I hadn't realised that all my juicing had been overloaded with fructose which for those of you who have read the latest blog will now know feeds the candida yeast infection.
So I thought I would educate myself in the correct protocol for juicing and pass on this information so… Continue

Every few months I get these cravings for sweets. I’m not a big-time sweets-eater. Not sure if it’s because my mom didn’t feed us many sugary foods while we were young or if I wasn’t wired to love desserty foods…but back to my point, every few months I can’t seem to finish a meal without salivating for a sweet bite afterward.
That’s been my life this past week. Continue

FACT: Tapioca is delicious.
FACT: You are what you eat.
AND THEREFORE: I have figured out why my bum looks like tapioca.
I often wonder why I’m not as healthy as I’d like to be; and after some reflection, what I really end up wanting to know is: Why is pizza so demanding? Why does it have to be the center of attention ALL THE TIME?

What child doesn’t love to eat a bag of popcorn, licking the excess salt off of each finger? Many of the foods we love contain large amounts of sodium. Foods with lower levels of sodium often taste bland. But are we once again sabotaging our health for taste? (Yes!) And should the government help save the public’s health by mandating decreased levels of salt in the foods American’s consume? (Yes!)
According to a new statement from the Food and Drug Administration, Americans are… Continue
