Did everyone see the article on Gawker last week proclaiming that organizations demanding mandatory labelling on foods containing GMO’s is simply a con to get consumers to purchase more organic foods? (Like that would be a bad thing…)
You know, I always try to be nice and to take the high road, meet people where they are and not judge. But GMO proponents just kill me with their slimy rhetoric.
I always say that your mother was right, at least about this one. Nothing gets your day off to a great start like a healthy breakfast. Skipping breakfast sets you up for a rollercoaster of a day with your blood sugars all over the place trying to keep you nourished and balanced.
According to WedMD: “Skipping meals, especially breakfast, can actually make weight control more difficult. Breakfast skippers tend to eat more food than usual at the next meal, or nibble on high-calorie snacks to stave off hunger.

I began my plant-based macrobiotic practice 33 years ago when I was terminally ill. Given about nine months to live, all my attention moved to healing and what I had to do in order to well…live. I was committed to doing what needed doing, what needed changing.
I love The Environmental Working Group. I have found that their research is impeccable and they do not resort to simple scare tactics. But they also don’t shy away from the truth. I turn to them for a lot of information.
This month, as spring springs, we think skin. We want to reveal a dewy lush complexion as we face sunny days and fewer clothes, but it’s important to take care of our largest breathing organ and to know what is in the product we are slathering all over our precious skin.
Ya’ know, I never really liked avocados…too soft and mushy. The flavor was okay, but the mouth-feel was just not for me. And then one day, my husband convinced me (after much pleading and cajoling) to try his guacamole…and I was hooked forever. What I had considered soft and mushy was actually smooth, creamy and oh, so sensual. I can’t get enough of them.

I love this simple to make multi-surface cleaner. I use it for just about every surface in my house, from the dining table to granite counters to wooden cabinets. It smells great, disinfects and cleans like nobody’s business. And there’s no need for a boatload of different products!

My husband and I are both athletes. Robert is a distance runner and gym devotee and I am a gym rat through and through. We also work hard, on our feet most of the day, resulting in what I call “The Always Full and Thoroughly Stinky’ laundry basket.
Sweaty gym clothes, day to day work clothes, towels, sheets and linens mean that I do a lot of laundry…and the cost of detergent (and the dicey ingredients in a lot of them…) was making me crazy.
