"Women sit or move to and fro, some old, some young, The young are beautiful, but the old are more beautiful than the young." –Walt Whitman As much as I love inspiring people for the sake of health and wellness, it is still a thrill when I am inspired, as often happens when I run […]

Honey Dijon Turkey Collard Wraps

On a day when I woke up too late to make my typical healthy delicious lunch, I ran across these Turkey Collard Wraps at PCC Natural Market in suburban Seattle Washington, PCC being a "Ma and Pa" version of Whole Foods. Treats like Turkey Collard Wraps, is merely another "arrow in my quiver" so to […]

Unlucky 13: The first 13 years of Genetically Engineered Crops

I sometimes regret that I don't speak enough on my blog against the hazards of eating Genetically Modified Foods, or GMO's. Just for the record, I am a conspiracy theorist at heart, and a person who's natural inclination is to venomously "Rage Against the Machine". However I don't wanna spend the rest of my life […]

Food For Thought: The Sunset Effect

I have a confession to make……………. As much as I use the words , "Zen", "Zen-Master", "Zen Philosophy", "Zen-bla-bla-bla", I don't have a very still mind. Perhaps both good and bad, since I love my active mind, and love the reality of my current "world view", and future possibilities that my mind creates for me. […]

Nature’s Dynamic Duo’s: Green Tea and Tomato (greatly reduce prostate cancer risk, and possibly ovarian, and other cancer risks)

This article is very similar to my article, "Nature's Dynamic Duo's: Green Tea and Papaya". The combo has been shown to dramatically decrease prostate cancer risk. Except I am focusing on Tomato in this post as opposed to Papaya. Why? The issue is really not so much about the healing benefits of green tea and […]

Fish in a Bag

When cooking for others, I love those meals that look like a "Grand Production", but in reality are very easy and very straight forward, with very simple quality healthy ingredients. So far as fish is concerned, I don't get overly concerned about mercury levels in fish, mainly because my main fish I eat almost daily […]

Girl Talk: Will lifting weights make a woman look too “masculine”?

….the short answer is no. The ridiculously "man looking" female bodybuilders are on steroids, "juicing" as they call it. There is no way the average woman could get that absurdly huge from only lifting weights. It is possible for a woman to find her arms, back, legs, or any body part getting more muscular than […]

Paleo Herb Bread

I don't eat a whole heck of a lot of grains, a slice of Whole Foods pizza here and there, and I try to think out of the box with gluten , as in using papaya enzymes to digest gluten. However, I do still love breads, and although I love my Coconut Banana Bread, in […]

Oils, the good, the bad, and the ugly

When people ask me of the main things that wreak havoc on people's health I normally say Genetically modified foods, high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners containing aspartame and other poisons, but the 4th that folks don't seem to be as aware of, is the oils we consume. You'll be amazed at the countless number […]

Nature’s Dynamic Duos: Papaya and Green Tea (Amazing health benefits when combined, especially for prostate health)

When I got hooked up to papaya, I swear I almost thought about becoming a modern day Dr. George Washington Carver, doing with papaya what Carver did for the peanut, that is, create hundreds products and  uses from one plant. The papaya, and all that is can do, seems almost a never ending list, I'm […]

Moroccan Braised Chicken with Organic Carrots and Hunza Raisins

I'm well beyond that bogus "Fat free" mentality from about a decade ago, and I prefer chicken thighs, wings and legs, because the healthy fat contained in quality pasture raised poultry is not only healthy, as healthy fat is as nececessary for balance, health, and wellness as is carbs and protein,  but also it makes […]
