Prediabetes Diagnosis?

| March 17, 2014 | Reply

Eight years ago, during a routine blood test at my cardiologist, I was told I was “prediabetic”. To my shock and dismay, my fasting blood glucose level was over 100. I THOUGHT I was living a healthy lifestyle but apparently I was wrong. I had to learn what was going on and quickly. I hate […]

Death From Alzheimer’s More Prevalent Than Reported?

| March 12, 2014 | Reply

It is quite possible many more people die from Alzheimer’s Disease than is currently being reported. Why is that so? Basically, death certificates generally list the direct cause of death, such as pneumonia, rather than the primary cause, like Alzheimer’s, says Bryan D. James, PhD, assistant professor 
at the Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center in Chicago.  “Many people do not realize that Alzheimer’s […]

When making important decisions, do you “trust your gut feelings”? Do you choose what your instincts tell you or do you always completely rationalize your choices?

All produce is not created equal. Since you will be buying fresh fruits and veggies and more than likely feeding it to other trusting individuals, it makes sense to go for the nutritional gold. Experiment with different varieties of what you normally would pack into your cart. Listed below are some suggestions for wholesome goodness […]

The thing with some kids is once you feed them, it seems like 20 minutes later, they say they are hungry again! At least that’s been my experience lately with a kid going through a growth spurt. Always on the lookout for a nutritious snack that will keep him filled for at least an hour, […]

There’s always a “new” plan out there promising fantastic weight loss results. The promise of a svelte body in six weeks, or major weight loss with minimal work always sounds super tempting, especially for those of us who overextend ourselves on a daily basis.

Admit it. You’ve given in. I’ve given in. Standing in the checkout line at just about any store, you are surrounded by “the final temptation”. You’ve gotten in a bit of mild exercise shopping for what you came in for, and by now you may be just a little hungry or thirsty. If by necessity […]
