We Got Featured!

We got featured on Vegan Liftz, check out the veganism on the rise article here.

The Cost of Going Vegan

The UK took a look at the cost of eating a vegan diet as compared to a conventional meat and potatoes (or bangers and mash) diet and the results were interesting.

Eating for Your Workout

Each January, we commit to getting healthy and fit. Then winter doldrums set in and we set our deeply-felt resolutions aside and curl up under a blanket on the sofa.

The spring comes and with it a renewed commitment to be our best (or perhaps it’s simply the deeply-held dread of taking off our layers and revealing what we have wrought over the winter months). For whatever reason, getting fit and spring go together like love and marriage.

Want More Energy?

Do you feel sluggish in the afternoons? Light-headed or suffer with brain fog and fatigue? If your health if generally good, you might be confused by this.

You may just need a B12 boost. Our bodies crave B12 to keep our nerves and cells healthy, among other things.

Vitamin B-12 (cobalamin) is a water-soluble vitamin that plays essential roles in red blood cell formation, cell metabolism, nerve function and the production of DNA.

Light, Bright Italian Fare

I am always inspired by my travels in and around Italy…all of the Med, really, but Italy is where my heart lives. I feel my best there, the most natural, the most…me.


The Sensual Nature of Strawberries

Here on the East Coast, during that brief period of paradise known as early summer (or late spring), strawberries rule…as they should. There is nothing quite like them in the plant kingdom. I can think of no other fruit that inspires thoughts of sensuality and romance like these lush berries. Slightly sweet, with just enough tart flavor to sparkle on our tongue, strawberries seduce us…and we willingly submit for every minute that they are in season.

Spring Sneezing

As April showers are replaced with May flowers, many of us rejoice at the thought of spring being fully sprung.

And then there are the more than 50 million Americans who dread the blossoms on the trees, the pollen in the air because for them, spring doesn’t bring flights of fancy, but rather boxes of tissues for their runny eyes and noses.

Seasonal allergies are no joke. According to The Asthma and Allergy Foundation, allergies cost more than $14 billion each year. That’s a lot of sneezing!

Is there any relief that doesn’t involve you feeling like the walking dead?

The DARK Act

With all the talk about the DARK Act (HR1599)seeing the light of day in the Senate after easily passing in the House, I thought it might be time for us to become educated on this potentially game-changing legislation. We need to fully comprehend what is at stake here and why it’s so important to let your representatives know that you want food labeled with or without GMO ingredients so you can decide for yourself if you want to consume them.

Get Your Glow On

How do you maintain a demeanor of calm, serenity in the world we live in? To say it's been a heck of a time since March of 2020 would be a laughable understatement. We are more than a year into the pandemic, with lockdowns, restrictions, masks and social distancing as our new normal for now.

Saturated Fat

As we celebrate our tickers, I thought I would take a look at one of the ingredients that seems to cause us so much grief.
We are told that eating foods containing saturated fats raises cholesterol levels in your blood. We know that high levels of LDL cholesterol, along with elevated triglycerides (fats in the blood) increase your risk of heart disease and stroke.
What exactly are saturated fats? A bit of chemistry for you.
