We have actually had arguments…um, conversations…about this in my home. My family much prefers white rice. The starchy, bright white kind that turns into goo when I cook it. Cooking rice is not one of my strong suits. For years I had a rice cooker/steamer that was a gift from an Asian friend. She gave … More White rice or brown: which is best?
I have read too much lately. I will spare you a list of all the things I have discovered that are worse for you than I thought. My biggest disappointment was canned tomatoes, which I use often. A recent article pretty much just scared me away from ever using canned goods. Period. I rarely do, … More Really? Green beans? Why?
Totally appalled by this post from Cadie Joy about organic vs. non-organic apples. I get a little complacent about buying organic every now and then, but this makes me realize that I shouldn’t. It is sometimes more expensive, but if you can possibly do it…do it. Read ’em and weep, folks… Let’s talk about apples. … More Puleeeeeze buy organic when you can…

Well, mine has. A lot. Basically, I can’t see. Contacts AND corrective glasses make the problem almost tolerable, but it pretty much stinks to have less than decent vision. I read this article on mercola.com with great interest. The ‘Bates Method’ seemed a little unusual, to say the least, but otherwise the information about supplementation … More Now that you are a little…older…has your vision changed??
This was a little bit painful to read…but I already knew the end of the story. The good news is that this somewhat depressing article (via mercola.com on Facebook) about a study that proves that sugar is actually toxic appeared on such a main stream platform: Time.com. If you follow health and wellness proponents, you … More Public enemy #1: SUGAR
I admit that I am a ‘do-it-yourself’ kind of gal. Maybe six kids will do that to you. I’ve been known to make my own clothes, aprons, diapers, sanitary napkins, bread, baking mix, cheese, soap, laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent (perhaps my most spectacular failure…), shampoo, body lotion, lip balm…I could go on, but you get … More How to make your own vitamin C!
