Healthy Skin Month

There comes a time in our lives when we think we can take a sigh of relief. Whew! I’m so happy those cursed years are over, we think.  The sweating for no reason, hair growing in weird places, and body changing days are behind us. Even better, we think, NO MORE ACNE! Those pimple-popping, giant… Read more »

November is Diabetes Awareness Month

Diabetes is a growing epidemic related to elevated blood sugar levels. Last year, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control reported that over 30 million people in the United States have some form of diabetes. That’s 10% of the population!

Avoid Grilling Carcinogens

Grilling outdoors is the highlight of the spring and summer months. The smell of the smoky embers, while tantalizing, can forewarn of possible carcinogenic food changes during the grilling process.  Knowing what these changes are doing to the food and how to lessen your exposure to them is important not only for food safety, but… Read more »

The Dangers of Bug Spray

My family comes alive in the summer. From the boat to the bonfires, and a weekend or two of glamping (have you met me?), it seems like we do everything outside. My fondest memories are the bonfires. I can still see my sons standing there with their little hoodies on, their faces lit up from… Read more »

Healthy Swaps for Baking and Cooking

Other than Disney World, Pinterest is my most favorite place on earth. I lose about two hours of my life each time I dive into that site and search for new recipes for my healthy lifestyle. I used to get into what looked like the perfect recipe and have to back right out after seeing… Read more »
