Summer’s Gift from Nature

August 28, 2018 by Joyce Bunderson

Is summer fruit one of the things that makes summer so wonderful? I know that that you are not being bombarded with advertisements to eat fruit. And that you, may be considering a ketogenic eating style, where fruit is limited. But the fact is that fruit is not just a plain wonderful, refreshing and flavorful […]

Sharing Some Fasting/Keto Thoughts

April 24, 2018 by Joyce Bunderson

I’ve been reading some of the barrage of articles about fasting and Ketogenic diets. Some of what I’ve read is based in fact, sprinkled with fairly insignificant errors. But some of what’s out there is just not factual. Some of the arguments that use biased or incorrect information, or faulty research design are extremely frustrating […]

Issue of Sustainability Much Bigger than Supposed

February 27, 2018 by Joyce Bunderson

I listened to a presentation by Danielle Nierenberg, the founder of FoodTank (like ThinkTank for food) and Chris Vogliano, a Registered Dietitian and doctoral student from New Zealand.

Call It What You Want

January 30, 2018 by Joyce Bunderson

Last week I wrote about the Mediterranean style of eating not going out of style. It a fascinating thing to me that one of the latest styles of eating is anti-inflammatory diets. In my effort to try to know what the public is being told, I stumbled upon a considerable collection of information about inflammation […]

Keeping the Joy in Learning

January 16, 2018 by Joyce Bunderson

Is lifetime learning one of your goals for the New Year? Or is it already one of your treasured passions? If yes, I’m with you. Like you, I love learning.

December 26, 2017 by Joyce Bunderson

About 1 in 100 people have the inherited autoimmune disease – celiac that causes damage to the small intestine when gluten is ingested. Another .4 percent of people have a doctor-diagnosed wheat allergy. Beyond this number there is a large group of people who have what is called “non-celiac gluten sensitivity.” This large group of […]

‘Tis the Season for Roasted Vegetables

November 28, 2017 by Joyce Bunderson

We live on the bench of the Wasatch Front of the Rocky Mountains; that’s a blessing when considering views; but when the cold weather comes, my native southern California core still chills at the thought of winter temperatures. Last night the weather made it first dip into the twenties; although it’s still November as I […]

November 7, 2017 by Joyce Bunderson

Does the holiday season increase the likelihood that you’ll grab fast food at mealtime? Even if you’re trying not to have fast food frequently, the holiday season can impact the best laid plans. For some people, especially those new to watching their intake, a hundred or two extra calories don’t seem like a big deal. […]

Google’s Corporate Eating – A Brilliant Model

October 31, 2017 by Joyce Bunderson

As so often happens to me, two things bump together and that gives me an idea of what I want to write about. This week was not an exception. The two events were: (1) talking with a friend with a little four-year-old super picky eater; and (2) reading a great article published in Food Management; […]
