I’m not sure… but whether it’s a creative block or the early onset of Alzheimer’s is pretty clear; at least to me it is. Now what was I talking about? Oh, eating healthy and keeping the brain sharp as a tack. Now the brain is no mere mechanical organ, nor is it simply a storage unit for the countless memories of a lifetime. It is the combination of these things and it also contains an enormous capacity for perception, empathy, reasoning, analyses and so much more. In some ways it could be said that “you” reside there. And without going [...]

Ok, so I wasn’t always a grocery shopper.  I mean, I’ve been a bachelor for years and it wasn’t on my top priority list.  That was until I got on my health streak (which I have continued for YEARS now).  So, I thought I’d share some good tips with you when you go to the store.  Check it!

First, let me say that I’m not sure if I believe the hype on this stuff…but I have had many people ask how this really works so I figured…”Hmmm…why not blog it!”.  This technology is implemented in the Green Star Twin Gear Juicer.  I have tried to research it more as far as studies but was not able to really come up with anything.  Anyway, here is my dissertation on it!   It was like writing a really short college essay.  ENJOY! Bio-magnetic content and special magnets within the gears of the twin-gear design supply positive ionization to the minerals of [...]

Why Buy a Juicer?

0 by / on October 23, 2008, 8:58 am

The best reason to ask “why buy a juicer” is to look closely at the label of most store bought juices. What comes first? Corn syrup? Sugar? How much fruit or vegetable is actually in the juice? Look at the ingredients and you will quickly find that most of the easy-to-buy, right-off-the-shelf juices available are made of sugar and water with a bit of fruit or vegetable juice. These juices typically also contain a number of preservatives, coloring agents, and other unnecessary and possibly detrimental additives that will neither be advantageous to your diet or your health. Raw foods, on [...]

Benefits of Vitamin K and How to Get It! “Who put the ‘K’ in Vitamin?”

0 by / on October 23, 2008, 8:54 am

I just love imagining the expression of profound “Huh?” on your face. (Or maybe I just overestimate my cleverness) Anyway, what I’m talkin bout Willis is Vitamin K; that amazing “koagulating” substance essential for healing our wounds.

Now for years scientists have believed that coagulation (see I can spell it) seemed to be the only boon of this baby but recent discoveries have shown [...]

Food Preservation Times and Tips – “Keepin It Fresh”

2 by / on October 21, 2008, 8:50 am

When you’re a health nut you tend to buy a lot of produce. This is a great thing until of course you begin to add up the cost of all the items you’ve had to toss because they went bad before you had a chance to eat use them. For me, I’ve developed an adversarial relationship with bananas. I buy a lot of bananas and it seems that they’re almost always over green in the produce section, they sit on my counter for two days ripening, I use maybe 2 and, whamo!, they’re brown. Now, fortunately because I use them [...]
