Supplements

Supplements are just that – supplements to your diet. Do not replace good food choices with pills/potions. But with today’s industrialization, mass production, and urbanization, it is virtually impossible to get all that we need from our foods. Even the right food may not have the nutrition it was meant to have because of depleted soils, improper picking time for optimal nutrient content, poor growing conditions, etc. I consider the following to be basic essentials for supplementation: Multi-vitamin – the best is a vitamin that is from a “natural’ whole food source and has a wide selection of nutrients.

Homemade Almond Butter

Food, Health, Research we Recommend
Someone once told me that Almond Butter was better for a person than peanut butter. I shook my head and thought how is that possible when peanut butter brings us so many wonderful things. Where would the world be without peanut butter cups, or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, or peanut butter cookies...mmm. And I can't be the only one that loves when a fresh jar of peanut butter is opened and I get to take the first dip into the smooth top. So I set out to do my own research and what did I find you might ask? The answer is that Almond Butter is slightly better for you than peanut butter is, that's it, Almond Butter has less saturated fat (by 2 grams per serving) and it has…
