“Flip the Script” on the “All American” breakfast

For non-vegetarians who know of the quality of grass fed meats pasture raised poultry and eggs, we instinctively know that the "All American" breakfast doesn't have to be as unhealthy as perceived. Like most other foods and meals, it can be enjoyed and contribute to health and wellness, once we remove those unhealthy ingredients.

Maca, a great coffee substitute, from a lesser known Super-duper food everyone over 40 should know about.

Make your own healthy delicious barbecue sauce!!!!

The reason I say it this way is that there is too much high fructose corn syrup and refined sweeteners in barbecue sauces and ketchups, and it all contributes to childhood (and adult) obesity. It all adds up as we consume ketchup, barbecue sauce and the like all day every day. I think making your […]

Healing my back problems from watching an Earthquake Documentary

Back problems plagued me about a decade ago, supposedly from a bulging disk. I would work on strengthening by back at the health club via back extension exercises, where you bend the torso and straighten the body while suspended horizontally. It helped some, but stiffness hung around for years. But I had an epiphany as […]

The Chocolate Project: making chocolate our friend, not our enemy

I consume chocolate everyday as part of my Power Smoothies. However, my chocolate is in the form of Organic Raw Cacao nibs. Eaten by itself, you'll find raw cacao to be unenjoyably bitter.

Has anyone ever tried the Squirrel GMO test?

I posted a video at the bottom of this post because I have been hearing and reading so much lately about the premise that animals won't, given a choice, eat genetically modified foods. I don't live in an area where I could try this experiment, but I'm sure a lot of health conscious eaters might […]

Why I Think Pink Himalayan Salt is Superior to Sea Salt

Read my comments at the bottom pertaining to the popular question, ‘Is Pink Himalayan Salt a Scam?’ Talking “healthy eating talk” to a co-worker a while back, I mentioned Pink Himalayan Salt which he never heard of.

Millet Pancakes

When tackling "The Pancake Project", I think this is the most important creation, because of my personal belief of the health benefits of millet.

Once again I have a recipe that I ran across that is currently in it's "development" stage but […]

The Apple Core: One man’s trash is another man’s cancer prevention.

The heated, or shall I say EXTREMELY HEATED, debate over vitamin B17 being the solution to effective cancer prevention, (just as vitamin C was the solution to scurvy disease a few hundred years ago) will rage on for decades I am sure, but for those who know instinctively that there might be some truth to […]
