How to Stop Getting Bit by Your Own Sweet Tooth

August 23, 2011 by Joyce Bunderson

Deciding to protect your teeth, your tummy, your heart and your hips from simple sugars is not such an easy decision in this world of cheap sweeteners. It seems as though it is being added everywhere; some places where we would expect it, and some, where we wouldn’t. Sugar (and its cousins – high fructose […]

Starting an “In a Hurry” Menu Idea List

August 9, 2011 by Joyce Bunderson

At the end of last week’s article, I suggested starting a list of ideas that work for you – healthy menu ideas that you can refer to when perplexed about ‘what’s for dinner.’ Since it’s summer, and it’s easy to slip into the long laid-back days, I thought that maybe a list of simple ideas […]

Enjoying a Splurge

July 15, 2011 by Mary Ireland

Well thank goodness that after Dr. Grandma spilled the beans on my brownie binge at a July 4th party, Michelle Obama had a burger, fries AND chocolate milk shake at a burger shack this week. This takes some of the pressure off of me, because I only had a few brownies too many. Both examples […]

Roughage Restored to Its Place on the Plate

July 5, 2011 by Joyce Bunderson

I remember the word ‘roughage’ being a funny word, at least is seemed so when I was a girl. My grandmother would chide us with, “eat your roughage.” Since Grandma didn’t teach us the benefits of roughage, we really had no clue about why she was so adamant about eating it. To us, it somehow […]

Boning Up on Vitamin D and Calcium – More May Not Be Better

June 28, 2011 by Joyce Bunderson

The other day I received an email from my sister; she was telling me about the Reclast Infusion that her physician recommended for her. She read the list of side affects and because she feels fine, she’s a little ‘freaked out’ about the list. Note: If you don’t like to use a list published by […]
