tribute to my “grama”

I am in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and Spokane, Washington for the Thanksgiving weekend.   The three of us here are 40, 60, and 80 year old women–me running my five miles each morning, my aunt walking, and my grama lying on the couch recovering from knee replacement.   It’s her third joint replacement, with a […]

a bodybuilder who “gets it!”

I leveraged some of this from a blog by Jason Ferruggia, one of the few bodybuilders who actually knows better than to drink whey protein shakes:Many of you know that dairy is not good for getting lean, and that consumption of dairy products has been linked to a decreased immune response.   Most of us […]

kefir grains

The next three days, I’m going to post some Q&A on subjects related to my recipe collection.   These are questions some  truth-seeking readers have asked: Q: ABOUT KEFIR GRAINS: I understand they are “friendly bacteria” that “keep on giving.”   They ferment milk into living organisms right?   Therefore, do they live indefinitely, and […]

Parenting Skills for Young Children

My next week of blogging will be about one of my favorite topics, possibly the #1 question I am asked—and the one I care about most.   How do I get my kids to eat right?   That is, parenting skills for young children when it comes to food and nutrition.   These blogs are […]

Modern dietetics

I heard a lecture by a registered nutritionist this weekend.   My experience in the past with dieticians has been that they are all “party line,” totally under the influence of the meat- and dairy-industry-controlled curriculum.   (Those with  dietetics  degrees are  the ones designing the menus in hospitals and schools, remember?    Enough said.)
