The Magic Potential Of Peppercorns

I owe my ex-husband an apology. He loves black pepper and tops every savory dish placed in front of him with a substantial amount of ground of peppercorn.

Could You Or Someone You Love Have Celiac Disease?

Now that the weather seems to be drying out a bit, I am on the road to check in with my parents in Truckee and on to my son in northern Utah. A few weeks back, my son called me from the emergency room, vomiting blood. The doctors checked him out, sent him home with a possible diagnosis of an ...

What To Do Before You Do A Cleanse

Make Your Own Salad Dressing

When I have clients who are ready to organize their diet around real food, one of the very first things I encourage them to do is eat a salad every day and skip the store-bought salad dressing in favor of homemade. The beauty of a salad every day is that it adds a significant amount of nutrient dense food to ...

Guard Against Deadly Hantavirus While Spring Cleaning

The abundant sunshine has turned my thoughts to spring and the evitable spring cleaning that most of us undertake to mark the end of winter. Garages and closets get reorganized. Seasonal cabins that have lain dormant for five or six months are opened up, and aired out. The problem with spring-cleaning those rooms and buildings that have been shut tight ...
