Berries, Berries and More Berries!



Hey folks!

We've made it to the middle, so let's pull ourselves over this hump! :-)

I came across the following list of seven berries we should be eating everyday from Global Healing Center.  The berries listed pack a powerful nutritional punch carrying with them antioxident strength! Berries can be a great topping for oatmeal and enhance any smoothie! So, take a look at the list and add these to your next shopping list!

Some Sweet Throwbacks!



Hey folks!

When thinking about what to post today - wait- I didn't have to think about it at all! My very dear friend AL, sent me a text telling me I should do something about sweet potatoes today.  He said some people were talking about them this morning on the news.  I LOVE receiving ideas for topics as it gives my brain a break!

Fatty Liver- Delicacy or Torture?




Hey folks,

I must be on a questioning kick these days!  I just find it very interesting to pick people's brains about different issues.  The production of Foie Gras is one that has been a hot button issue for quite sometime amongst animal activists.  I came across a very intersting article on cnn.com about Foie Gras pertaining to the production and controversy surrounding it.
