Choices and Consequences

This New Year’s Eve, I decided to make a gluten-free lasagna as part of a festive meal with my kids. I used rice pasta, which is neutral, but I also used canned tomato sauce, ricotta cheese, and mozzarella cheese on top. Tomatoes are an avoid, but I’ve found that they improve muscle pain and energy […]

Merry Happy ChrismaHanukkah

This year, the first night of Hanukkah fell out on Saturday, December 24th. This meant that the food stores were crazy busy late in the week, and weren’t open at all on Saturday night or Sunday. We never go food shopping during Shabbos, so the fact that many stores were open on Saturday until noon […]

Microwave

I’ve heard a lot of bad things about microwave ovens- both that they’re unhealthy to be around while they’re running, as well as making the food less healthful. According to some studies, the very nature of microwaves damages foods, while others say that toxins can leach into foods more easily during microwaving. Those studies imply […]

Evitar alimentos procesados

Un ejemplo de un producto que puede llevarte a equivocaciones. ¿Sabes cómo se producen los embutidos? Cada uno tiene un proceso diferente y, si bien, cada vez se intenta utilizar menos aditivos, aún están muy lejos de ser productos “all natural” como reza el eslogan de las marcas disponibles. Además del azúcar refinado, la dextrosa […]

My health hasn’t been quite right since the hernia repair surgery back in December. In February, an echo-cardiogram revealed fluid on my heart, and I’ve been going to doctors and tests […]

Re-Starting a Familiar-ish Routine

Jack started attending the local public high school last Wednesday, after two years of homeschooling. Up until I pulled him out of school, I’d always had at least one child in school or day care since Hannah started preschool. So that’s about 16 years of being used to a “school schedule” followed by two years […]

Reboot

It feels like I’m constantly re-inventing myself and having to re-start what I already know works for me. For YEARS, I was able to be very strict about my diet, not really being tempted by the non-compliant stuff in the house for the kids. But somehow, over the past year or two, things have shifted […]

¿Que son ‘alergias’?

Una reacción alérgica es la respuesta de nuestro sistema inmunológico hacia algún alergéno que para muchos es totalmente normal e inofensivo. En cambio para aquel que es sensible, dicha manifestación se amplifica, convirtiéndola en una reacción fisiológica no apropiada que se manifiesta en patología desde las formas más comunes como por ejemplo dolor de cabeza, […]
