I’ve had many people tell me, “Oh, I don’t use salt.” Salt is essential for the body to maintain health. Why do you think the first thing they do when you go to the hospital is start a saline drip? Watch this short video for a brief explanation.

Like you, I too am worried about my family. I worry that they aren’t getting enough vitamins. I worry they will get cancer, so I try to buy organic, no hormones — pure food — but it’s impossible. I feel like a total failure, but I swear I’m not giving up.

Release Permits under 7 CFR Part 340, low and behold tobacco was listed as well as: corn, to sweet oranges, from black cottonwood, to sugar beets, grapefruit, potato, soy, walnuts, chestnuts, alfalfa, sorghum, casava, apple, eucalyptus, sugar cane, mustard, cotton, tomato, beets, Mexican lime, peppermint, poplar, safflower, papaya, aspen, grapevine, persimmon, cypress, banana, pine, switchgrass, elm, palm, barley, plum, petunia, anthurium, grapes, wheat, bermudagrass and peanuts. I was shocked.

I’m the first one to tell people to buy organic and I support labeling GMO’s in principle, in so much as I support accurately labeling GMO products. What I do not support is giving people a false sense of security. These bills have no substance. There are holes big enough to drive a truck through.

Green Mountain Gringo — believe it or not that’s what our new Salsa is called, and it’s a mouthful. I made a Mexican pizza for lunch today. Of course, today’s pizza looks a lot different than the ones I used to make. Today, I use a pizza stone, instead of an 11″ x 17″ pan. I like to mix the pizza sauce, salsa and refried beans.

I’ve read all these stories that the media is putting out about how organic food is a waste of money. How there is no difference in vitamin content. Well I can tell from the taste, the texture, the aroma, that there is a difference.

6-months ago I knew about genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) but I really didn’t care one way or the other. I’ve spent a little time each day learning more about GMO’s and the consequences. What I’ve found just keeps getting worse and worse…

I wonder who decided it was best for us to become cannibals? The thought to me conjures up images of Ernest Shackleton in The Endurance Expedition. That’s exactly what we are doing when we allow companies like Senomyx to use aborted fetuses in our food. The food companies and tasters are creating novel flavor enhancing compounds for the processed […]

Why isn’t anyone concerned about the bees? It was all over the news a couple of years ago, now we hardly hear anything. If congress doesn’t act soon it will be too late and our planet will be irreversibly changed. I’ll show you…

I guess I should start at the beginning, when the hubby and I stopped in at Carl’s Jr. on Saturday the 26th we ordered four western bacon cheeseburgers and went home (15 miles) to eat with our son…

Has the food craze hit your family? Our family has been spending more time in the kitchen than ever before. From baking homemade breads and pizzas to dehydrating chicken for the dog to eat, we are really enjoying the time spent and since we are careful what we buy and prepare many of the foods from scratch, we’re eating healthier. Something I can feel good about.

So, you know me. I let my fingers do the clicking and came up with Chicken Jerky for Dogs, believe it or not, it’s really easy. A couple words about the recipe: Take your chicken from the freezer and thaw it for just about an hour. Chicken should still be frozen, but it will have rested enough to allow you to create nice, thin slices.

I have been on a quest for chocolate and not just any chocolate — but chocolate with sea salt. First I have to tell you about the very best caramel I’ve ever tasted. They are called “Bequet Gourmet Celtic Sea Salt Caramels” and let me tell you, they are incredible. The caramels have this salty after-taste […]
