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. Sometimes, what I learn is painful and sometimes it’s joyful. Today in a very short length of time, I experienced both emotions. I was reading […]

Week Two – A Setup for Success

January 9, 2018 by Joyce Bunderson

It’s week two of the New Year; are you still toying with ideas for goals for this New Year? Why not? Think about it; but don’t procrastinate too long – jump in – get started. Don’t sell yourself the idea that you missed January first and now it’s too late. The following are just a […]

Rabbit Food – A Brainy 2018

January 2, 2018 by Joyce Bunderson

I was thinking that maybe this year you may want to consider focusing on getting greens into your regular eating pattern. I’ve met quite a few people who make fun of those (including me), suggesting that such eating is rabbit food. I don’t say much to them, because I know they’re committed to what they […]

Don’t Blame Gluten – It May be Fructan

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 […]

Replacing Sugar Sweetened Beverages

November 21, 2017 by Joyce Bunderson

I just stumbled upon a study published in Obesity on November 14, 2017. It was published just in time for this article that I’ve been planning to write about beverages. Since it’s good news, it was an especially welcome find. What the Harvard professor Sara N. Bleich et al found when they examined National Health […]

Substitutions and Wild Creativity

November 14, 2017 by Joyce Bunderson

Today, a granddaughter and a few of her friends are coming over for a little cooking lesson. I’m going to involve them in three recipes; a stir-fry (same technique used to make fajitas); minestrone soup; and a super easy soup. I chose the recipes; recipes that will help them learn techniques that can be used […]

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; […]

Herbs and Spices for Flavorful Food

October 10, 2017 by Joyce Bunderson

As I begin typing this post, I realize that I’m headed for Greece, where herbs and spices are integral ingredients in making food quite wonderful. This article won’t get posted for about a month, but I’m in one of my moods to share a bit about the use of herbs and spices. On April 25, […]

Faulty Fear of Fat and Cholesterol

September 26, 2017 by Joyce Bunderson

I was extremely fortunate to attend the Fielding School of Public Health at UCLA. I say that because it took many in public health nutrition thirty years to finally get the recommendations that my professors shared with me clear back in the 1980s. The issue of dietary cholesterol and fat was taught fairly differently between […]
