Supermarket Swindle: Two Things To Avoid On Your Food Labels

By | 2017-06-10T11:21:36+00:00 January 1st, 2015|Did You Know, Healthy Eating, What Are You Eating?|15 Comments

As I've said before, there are only a few things that really unnerve me - one of them is dishonesty in marketing. (Surprise, surprise... that's what marketing is.) If you browse an aisle at the supermarket, you will see claims made on package after package after package... but is it really worth it? For that [...]

By | 2017-06-10T11:22:00+00:00 November 28th, 2014|Food 101, Healthy Eating|26 Comments

A while back, I was asked the following on twitter: "Why is eating healthy so time consuming and expensive?" To which I replied, "You'd like me to answer that in 140 characters or less? LOL" If anything, I was trying to spare ol' girl from a rant consisting of 324,356,316 tweets back to back trying [...]

Why Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Breaks My Heart

By | 2014-09-23T13:58:32+00:00 September 23rd, 2014|Health On The Small Screen, The Op-Eds|50 Comments

So, I know I'm late in writing about Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution (JOFR), but I really needed to sort out my thoughts on it, first. As I've mentioned, I'm not much of a pop culturist. If I didn't have twitter already, I might never know what a twitter is. I know that's shameful, 'cause I'm [...]

Another Reason To Ditch The High Fructose Corn Syrup

By | 2017-06-10T11:25:34+00:00 April 3rd, 2014|Did You Know, Food 101, Healthy Eating|7 Comments

Why? Because there's mercury in it. I'm a believer in a simplified life. It's like, I appreciate the fact that processed foods allow us the ability to eat more complex dishes at less of a cost to our time... but you can't get "something" for "nothing."

You might [...]

Avoiding That Starving Feeling

When I first began phasing processed foods out of my life, the most difficult part was the fact that I always felt hungry. Sure, I was eating three square meals a day, but I was always starving. I mean, we're talking "OMG I HAVEN'T EATEN IN 3 MONTHS (or hours, whatever) I'M GONNA DIEEEEE" starving, [...]
