Buckwheat: It’s Not What You Think It Is

With a name like buckwheat, it would be understandable to assume it’s a form of wheat. Right? Well, if you were to make this assumption, you’d be completely wrong.

“Healthy Sweeteners” Is Not an Oxymoron

Who doesn’t enjoy a sweet treat every once in awhile? I know my family does.

And now that I know about various choices for healthy sweeteners, I feel better about indulging just a little […]

5 Dinnertime Survival Tips for Your Busy Family

I find summer to be a really relaxing time with the kids at home—nowhere in particular to be for the majority of the day until…dinnertime. This can cause some real problems and complaints from hungry kids in the backseat on the way home from a ball game (or whatever the activity was that night). The […]

Thankfully, there are shoot-from-the-hip people like […]

The Shocking Truth About Nut Butters

Coconut Almond Butter

My whole family loves nut butters. For breakfast, raw almond butter slathered on a piece of warm toast with melty butter underneath, gobbled up while it’s still gooey. For a snack, roasted peanut and raw sesame-seed butter smeared on crisp apple slices. For dinner, peanut butter made into a sauce over chicken, vegetables, and rice. […]

Autoimmune Reactions: Part of Every Chronic Condition You Treat

When he first heard of this odd new concept of autoimmune reactions in the body, the father of modern immunology, Nobel Laureate Paul Ehrlich, was so aghast that he dismissed the theory out of hand, calling it Horror Autotoxicus. Almost a half century would pass before Dr. Royal Lee and colleagues discovered the phenomenon anew […]

It’s Not You; It’s My Thyroid

Let’s play a game. It’s a lot like Jeff Foxworthy’s  “You might be a redneck if…” routine—but not nearly as amusing.
