I overdid it on the roller yesterday. I knew I might have been doing it while I was doing it, but that didn’t stop me. Apparently, I irritated my sciatic nerve. I became exquisitely aware of this at 3:00am, when I awoke from a sound sleep, feeling like my entire right leg was on fire. […]
Good morning, everyone. Yes, I know it’s been a long time. Mea Culpa, blah, blah, blah. This is going to be a long post with no pictures, some links, and an awful lot of health stuff. If you don’t want to read it, I don’t blame you. This is the point where you click to […]
Looking at me, one can (and I have) say that I’ve never missed a meal.
Sounds funny and, on one hand, it’s true. I haven’t missed many. Truth be told, I’ve even doubled up on some. However, as I was eating breakfast (gluten-free cinnamon raisin bread with cream cheese), I thought about how many meals, thousands […]
When I first set up this blog, I didn’t intend it to be about my cats. I know, we all my love my cats (well, most of us), and while they are cute, and endlessly fascinating, but…
That said, I do want to write about the things that are going on. The real things. Some […]
I woke up yesterday to a chilly, damp and rainy day. It called for soup.
The process of making soup is magical to me. I take all these disparate ingredients and mix them together into a watery mess. I add heat and come back hours later to find that the watery mess has turned into […]
I wanted to reply to a comment left on my Facebook in response to yesterday’s blog post, but I don’t know how to do that without sounding over-the-top preachy. So, suffice it to say that my husband and I do not have an extravagant income, nor do we have exorbitant food bills. However, we make […]
oh…how difficult you are.
I saw the nutritionist yesterday. She’s a holistic nutritionist, believing as I do, that a body out of balance manifests in disease. And boy, is it ever time to put my money where my mouth is. I don’t want anybody to get alarmed, though. I’m working closely with my MD (who […]
Yeah, I’m writing about the bike again. I have a feeling it’s going to happen a lot.
You might have already figured out that I love riding. I’ve already explained why.
Today, I had a break between clients. I was in a lousy mood because I have an appointment with my […]
I just got a call from my doctor.
The good news is that I don’t have Celiac Disease. Of course, as she pointed out, that doesn’t mean I can eat wheat without experiencing joint and muscle pain as a result. We only know that I’m not flattening out the intestinal cilia when I do. I […]
Braised Kale and Tortellini
I’ve been craving dark green, leafy veggies lately. The Kale at the market looked amazing, so I brought home two bunches. Kale is pretty boring steamed, but sauteed, it takes on new life. I’d not braised it, however, and was curious as to how that might come […]
