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 […]

Not for Fashion; but for Health

August 21, 2018 by Joyce Bunderson

I recently stumbled upon an article on How America’s “Ideal” Butt Has Changed Over The Last Century. I’ll concentrate on seven of the eleven styles. Certainly, we’d have to almost be in a cave to not guess that the ample curves of Minaj and Kardashian would be the present popular style. I can remember […]

Going a Little Nuts

July 31, 2018 by Joyce Bunderson

It seems to be one of the holdovers from the days when so many were eschewing any food with fat; but there are still people who don’t include nuts in their diet because of the fat content. Too bad!!! Nuts and seeds are dense with fiber and nutrients. The fat in nuts is mostly monounsaturated […]

Are You Moving Toward Non Dairy Milk?

July 17, 2018 by Joyce Bunderson

This is definitely the age of non-dairy milk. Options are more plentiful than a dietitian’s wildest imagination. My imagination can be pretty wild, but I still see a range of options that include both good and bad choices for different individuals. Having all these choices can be nice, especially if you have lactose intolerance; you’re […]

June 12, 2018 by Joyce Bunderson

Watching someone gradually ‘slip away’ into the grips of Alzheimer’s disease is a sobering experience. Many of us have considerable fear of this happening to us; but what surprises me is that it doesn’t appear that most people understand that less than 1% of the Alzheimer’s population develops the disease due to a genetic mutation. […]

Lifestyle Is Key to Managing Hypertension

May 29, 2018 by Joyce Bunderson

Hypertension or high blood pressure has long been known as a silent killer; the fact that humans don’t really feel their blood pressure, means that a person can have lethal blood pressure and not have a clue. So the first step is to take opportunities to check your blood pressure fairly frequently. The next step […]

Designing Your Own Personal Eating Plan – A Long-Term Journey

May 22, 2018 by Joyce Bunderson

There are a few issues that trouble me while observing the general public go through yet another restrictive diet. (The ketogenic diet seems to be gaining popularity by the day.) Restrictive diets can lead to fewer calories and thus to weight loss. But eventually they go off the diet, unless they mold it into a […]

Mushrooms to the Rescue

May 1, 2018 by Joyce Bunderson

In my experience, people either love ‘em or hate ‘em. I guess if you really hate them, you hate the types you’ve tried of the 7,000 edible varieties – and therefore assume they are all not for you. But on the other hand, if you don’t hate them, then maybe you’ll be interested in their […]

Calories Matter

April 10, 2018 by Joyce Bunderson

As much as we wish that calories wouldn’t matter; the fact is that our bodies are very effective at sucking the energy out of most of them. (Yes, I’m aware that calories are a measurement of energy.) When headlines are splashed across the newspapers or magazines that say something like: “The Key to Weight Loss […]
