Eating for a Healthy Liver

I was recently reading a NY Times online article about a woman describing the moment when her liver failed her, and not from alcoholism (what most of us tend to think of first), but from something completely different. One line in her story grabbed my attention and really had me thinking about how we don’t […]

Dealing With Negative Comments

I borrowed this title from the author of a blog I follow – whom I am coming to know and admire more through her blog – and a recently-posted entry of an experience and reaction she had to some negative comments that were thrown her way. One thing I’ve learned through the years is that […]

Imua: Small Steps to Reach Your Goal

I was listening to an interview online today with a woman named Amber Singleton Riviere who hosts several online resources for small business owners and entrepreneurs. Her talk offered Steps to Accomplish Big Goals. There were a couple of points (some new, some not-so-new) that stood out to me and are worth sharing here. One […]

At this time of the year, it seems everyone is offering advice about how to eat during the holidays. There are a lot of “don’ts” and “stay away from”s, and we all know how difficult it can be to refrain from indulgences, especially when those around you are not or are raving about how good […]

My Pumpkin Obsession/Quest Continues

For some reason, I am completely obsessed with pumpkin right now. From a health perspective, pumpkin is full of anti-aging and disease-fighting nutrients: alpha- and beta- carotenes, and Vitamins C and E. Pumpkin is also an excellent source of fiber – as much as five grams per half-cup serving, and potassium, which promotes bone strength […]
