Thank you, Martin Ginsburg!

Posted by:

In the spirit of authenticity and honesty, it’s time to fess up. I have a major obsession… Cookbooks! I LOVE to cook and I LOVE good, healthy food that I can share with family and friends. It’s October, and everywhere I go, every magazine and cookbook is front and center presenting a new temptation.

It’s REALLY hard for me to NOT buy a cookbook (whether new or used), especially when these titles and book covers are staring me in the face:

  • “Small ...

Musings on Spring Delights!

Posted by:

When the leaves burst forth and I can enjoy tulips on our breakfast table for next to nothing in cost, I am ready for SPRING! I cherish colors in the garden and eagerly await our first farmer’s market opening (we live in Colorado so we don’t get to enjoy the year round markets of other states). I’m a sucker for new cookbooks bursting with visuals that get my mouth watering. I’m ready for new adventures outside that take me out ...

Could Your Toothbrush Be Keeping You Sick?

Posted by:

Okay, so we had a few funky germs in our home over the holiday season and while washing the bedding and airing out the house, I remembered that bacteria can also linger on our toothbrushes. Most of us brush at least twice a day. Funny how good health can be derailed when brushing with a germy toothbrush, one with lingering bits of bacteria.  It’s easy to forget, right? So, do I replace or clean?  Read on for the latest info ...

“The Giving Book” – Teaching Children about the Gifts that Keep on Giving

Posted by:

One of my new favorite books is one that teaches and engages young readers beautifully in the power of compassion and service to others. This is a poignant time of the year, especially when so many children in our communities go without.

While most adults want to bring holiday happiness into a child’s life, how do we instill in them a greater awareness for those around us who may live with less? How do we instill in them that their actions ...

Healthy Organic Wine Choices for the Holidays!

Posted by:

U.S. sales of certified organic wine and those made with organic grapes hit $80 million last year, rising 28 percent since 2004, according to the Organic Trade Association (OTA). Today, wine enthusiasts buy nearly twice as much organic wine as they did in 2003. The association says it expects organic wine sales to continue to grow.

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, how about trying an organic wine in lieu of a non-organic one this year? “Why?” you may ask. Here’s ...

Please Pass the Chi Whiz!

Posted by:

Okay, many of us have heard of “Chi.” As a reminder, it’s the circulating life energy that in Chinese philosophy is thought to be inherent in all things. Further, in traditional Chinese medicine the balance of negative and positive forms in the body is believed to be essential for good health.

And of course boosting our chi can be fun, as seen in one of my favorite images by artist Diane English, click here to visit her website to ...

The Perfect Storm Theory of Breast Cancer and Iodine Deficiency

Posted by:

Okay, so how many conversations do you hear about this topic? Believe me when I say it’s important!  In Lynne Farrow’s book The Iodine Crisis I recently read that thyroid and breast disease “skyrocketed between 1970 and 2000.” Why would that be, I thought? I continued reading. Apparently iodine was looked at as a “universal medicine” going back thousands of years, and used primarily in it’s earlier form as seaweed.

So where did iodine go and why are we ...

Breast Cancer: Recovery and Creation

Posted by:

Trust me when I say that when going through any cancer treatment, there are multiple doctor’s appointments, treatment plans, test results, medications, medication changes, surgery and treatment dates, questions, answers, notes upon notes that you take and it’s critical to keep track of this information. I know – I went through this 12 years ago. For the cancer patient, treatment brings emotional ups and downs along with fatigue and mental fogginess. It’s an added burden to try to remember and ...

The Healing Power of Reiki

Posted by:

It’s an understatement when I say I had the good fortune of being introduced to Reiki nearly 12 years ago! I had been diagnosed with cancer and was looking for anything to help me heal. I am so grateful that I am open to trying new things, especially healing modalities, as long as it doesn’t involve pain! I’ve learned that the world is abundant in healing resources. We just have to know how to tap into them.

I’m always a little ...
