Hint

There is a product I can buy at my grocery store called Hint.  It is bottled water with a “hint” of fruit flavor.  No sugar, no artificial sweetener, all natural.  I love it – – except it’s a little pricy to drink on a daily basis.  When it goes on sale I stock up. I […]

Dehydration

Do you believe in providence?  I do.  Too many times in my life a random search, an unexpected meeting, a chance conversation, turns out to be life changing.  I found the Blood Type Diet in a random search.  I believe that was the providence of God.  I may well be experiencing another blessing of providence […]

Spices, Supplements and Bible Stories

The Eat Right 4 Your Type Cardiovascular Disease book recommends two spices as Super Beneficial for Type O’s – Turmeric and Fenugreek.  I take a Turmeric supplement once a day and often cook with Turmeric itself and with a Curry powder the number one ingredient of which is Turmeric. But Fenugreek I have never used.  […]

Exercise after Menopause

There are four facts about exercise after menopause that are intertwined.  When taken together they create a downward spiral that robs women of health as they age.  Fighting against them takes daily awareness and daily effort.  I knew the facts.  I have even blogged about them.  But I let down my guard, and lost some […]

Eye rolls and Exercise

The exercise recommendations for Type O in the Cardiovascular Book are not appreciably different from the recommendations in Dr. D’s other books.  What I learned – that is new to me – is that one of my definitions was completely wrong, and that being 15 years older now than I was when I started the […]

Fresh look at Vegetables and Fruits

I feel like I’ve made some progress since my last blog.  At least one of my meals every day has been beneficial or super-beneficial protein.  I have lost more than a pound – a noticeable part of which has come off my belly.  I feel encouraged. This week I focused my reading on vegetables and […]

Blood Test Woes

Reading blogs means you walk through life, learning alongside the blogger.  So when I was learning about the BTD, you were there.  When I sent my kids off to college, when my first grandbaby was born, when I started buying organic – you were there.  This week I got the results from the blood work […]

Spicy blog

It all started at the grocery store when I was almost out of Italian Seasoning.  Of course I was in a hurry.  As I scanned the spice bottles looking for the very well-known McCormick’s blend of that name.  I saw a familiar texture.  I saw the word seasoning.  And I pulled a bottle off the […]

So embarrassing, so not worth it

Last Friday I went hiking with my hiking club.  Between cancellations for weather and conflicts with the new grandbaby, I had only hiked twice since Christmas.  I was ready to hit the trail. We hiked about three miles in a Hill Country park.  I was taking pictures of trees budding, and enjoying the promise that […]
