Leavened bread - 1

Naturally Leavened Bread Made with Kamut

12 Stepper Darlene in Canada sent me these gorgeous photos of the whole-grain, 100% naturally leavened bread she made with Kamut rather than wheat, for her gluten-intolerant daughter. She used Jim Simmons’ starter. Read my blog entry from  June 8  on how to get some free starter. Hope this inspires those of you working on […]

bottled water vs. tap water

If you read Ch. 10 and Ch. 12 of 12 Steps to Whole Foods, you may already be familiar with my opinions about water.   (Drink lots of it. Especially first thing in the morning.

your Total Blender does not run itself

Y’all know I am madly in love with the BlendTec Total Blender.   (So much so that  I, for now anyway, give 12 Steps to Whole Foods away when you get one through the link on this site.)   It’s not just an appliance, not just a blender . . . it’s really my best […]

Let’s talk about food and sex

No, this isn’t that episode of Seinfeld where George Costanza tried to combine the two in a feverish fantasy . . . and if you can’t handle some frank talk about an important part of your life, WARNING: hurry and get out of this blog and come back tomorrow. Did you know that what you […]

I have more energy at 42 than I did at 22!

Thanks again for signing up for my free newsletter.   See, I was just like you might be.   I found myself in a place I hated: sluggish, 15 pounds overweight, suffering with a variety of health problems . . . and I was only 25 years old! But that’s a story you already know […]
