I had promised myself in 2012 to get Green Tea into my daily regiment due to it's amazing health and healing properties, which go all the way to the level of cancer prevention. For example, I make a big batch of green tea, let it cool, and put it in a half gallon glass container, [...]
I run across a great set of legs every now and then in real life. And when I see a pair cross my path like Haley's Comet, somewhat toned and/or muscular, but stopping short of a "she must be on steroids" look, I have to go up and give her a non threatening compliment. These [...]
Please guys, I'm not a doctor, I don't need anyone anyone "popping pills" without knowing what they are doing, getting a heart attack, and then suing me. But this subject matter is too important for overall male health for me not to write this post. I think those Viagra, Cialis, and other TV commercials are [...]
Brazilian Beer Marinated Chicken I remember growing up, observing my father in the kitchen, when Sunday was his one day to take over the kitchen and cook, that he was always pouring beer on his creations. I found it "interesting", to say the least. Well, like father, like son. I don't drink that much beer [...]
I knew this day would come. I suppose it's been here for a while, but this is the day I researched it and came with so much evidence, it was nauseating. Bottom lime, GMO's is starting to show up in our organic food supply, in various forms. For example, organic farms can find their product [...]
"Things are never as bad as they seem, you just gotta learn to see the forest for the trees" –Huey Lewis There is a 222 acre nature park named Tualatin Hills near Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton Oregon, and I started walking through it to get to work, and at lunch, since the weather [...]
I get the feeling from the comments from my readers make about my recipes, that I am winning the war against those who don't think that healthy eating can be delicious eating. Now its time to go on the offensive, hit at the jugular vein of the enemy, and launch and attack on their most [...]
Maca is a nutrient dense plant that grows in the harsh conditions of the Andes Mountains in Peru. It can be purchased in powdered form and is great in smoothies!!! I wrote a well received article on Maca, and its benefits to women over 40, I just wanted to touch upon the great benefits of [...]
Is your fish sticking or falling apart on the grill or skillet? Try grilling or frying fish on lemons!!!!! (Why didn't I think of that?) I know this seems like such a trivial subject to write a whole blogpost on, but running across this little "tidbit" of information opened up fish "Fish Grilling World" to [...]
I wanted to "introduce" an amazing plant that I have been researching named Kwao Krua Kao. This is the exact same herb I wrote about in my recent breast cancer prevention article where I used its other name, Pueraria mirifica, just wanna use its second name here. Note I say "introduce" this herb as opposed [...]
On the Menu: Crab Cakes Made Healthy One of my personal favorite flicks, with great music, and as always, another "Oscar Worthy" performance by the way too underrated Jeffrey Wright as Blues artist Muddy Waters. …..and a note on why I don't get too uptight about occasionally eating so called "scavengers", that is, shrimp, crab, [...]
The quick comment, as I make with all my bread recipes, is that I'm not a huge bread eater anymore, but I still love occasional fresh baked quality bread, and I utilize papaya enzymes to digest gluten. Just thinking "outside the box" to address the gluten free, grain free movements. Anyhoo, tricking friends into eating [...]
Although I eat tons of veggies, I'm not a vegetarian, and doubt if I ever will be. I do however, like to prepare some "non-meat treats", and just to keep in practice with some non meat recipes, which comes into play if, for example, you have vegetarian friends, or are throwing a party and want [...]
I'm not a super big coffee drinker, on most days at work I drink my Maca Coffee, which is much better than java to me. I do still love regular coffee on some days however, especially on those "lazy Sundays" where the world slows down, and I actually have an hour or two to live [...]
I've always been a fan of the "One Shining Moment" collage at the end of the NCAA Basketball Tournament, something about it I just love every year. And I love that song!!! Just wanted to share this year's segment of the memorable moments of the NCAA basketball tournament. I think the Network will remove this [...]
We all know that Danica Patrick has no problem showing us what she got. That's not the point here. However, Danica's cameo appearance, along with Dale Earnhardt Jr., in Jay-z 's hot video "Show Me What You Got" will set the theme for this latest batch of hard bodies. …….and they are going to show [...]
Okay, as a youthful 50 years old, I thought I had it going on, zipping up and down the basketball court at the gym like a 30 year old, but Wendy Ida is putting all of us to shame. But I ain't "hating", just embracing, admiring, and being inspired, so welcome Wendy Ida to my [...]
Sriracha is a type of hot sauce, named after the coastal city of Si Racha, in the Chonburi Province of Eastern Thailand. You can replace the Sriracha with you favorite "spicy stuff" if you want. I love chicken thighs, mainly since they are so juicy, and I am not afraid of fat, or shall I [...]
