Swiss chard, figs and homemade pizza oh my!

Yippee!  Sprouts moved in down the road.  I can’t tell you how excited it made me!  When I lived in Addison, everyone thought I was weird because I went to 2 different grocery stores (Wal-mart and Sprouts and sometimes even Albertson’s if they had a good special.)  Back then, I baked an artichoke (which wasn’t worth the hassle), made my own sushi, and even attempted kohlrabi.  Even though I’m...

How I can turn brushing my teeth into something nutrition related

As you might have seen in the last post I went to the dentist last week.  I’ve always had extremely sensitive teeth.  So sensitive, in fact, that it’s hard to eat fruit straight out of the refrigerator.  Part of the reason for this is because my gums are receding and the roots are exposed.  I actually had to have surgery for this when I went about seven…it was called a gum graft where they...

Operation BP: Part 3 – Lesson Learned!

Did you know that when checking blood pressure you should use your left arm!  Apparently that little tidbit of information didn’t commit to my memory at any point in school.  But any nurse, dental hygienist or other practitioner regularly checking your blood pressure knows this. My point: for 3 years I’ve been worried sick about my blood pressure jumping 10 points.  As you’ve read in the past...

Pity Party

After a week long pity party, I’m over it and back to my running life.  After last Tuesday’s track workout (which kicked my butt by the way), I haven’t touched the running shoes.  In fact, the only exercise I’ve done in one week’s time is Wii Bowling and Tennis and Dance, Dance Revolution.  I even went as far as telling saying, “I’m through with running!”  I take it back…I...

The Psychology of Nutrition: PART 1

You wake up one morning and get on the scale.  It’s higher than usual (let’s say by 10 pounds.)   It’s been several weeks since you’ve weighed, but you certainly didn’t think it would be that high!  You knew you’re clothes were feeling a little tight though.  How do you respond to this? You’re going to grab a banana for breakfast that morning instead of eating the bowl of cereal you’ve...

Who says you HAVE to let your produce go bad?!

How many times have you thrown away an entire bunch of grapes because you never opened the bag up?!  I have some great tips for you and saving your fruits and veggies so that doesn’t happen. Grapes can be frozen to make a sweet after-dinner treat. Tomatoes can be made into salsa. Celery, bell pepper and onion are considered to be the “holy trinity” by chefs.  Freeze and pull back out for soups...

Processed Nation

Processed Nation – Wendy’s and hot dog don’t have mold yet! After I thought about all the food I said I would purchase on my Processed Nation Blog, I decided to reevaluate the situation.  All it took was thinking about all the bugs all that food would attract in my house.  I HATE bugs, especially roaches. Instead, I waited until a presentation I was doing on 11/29 to Instinct Volleyball club about...
