Last week two things came my way that inspired this blog post from me. Firstly, although I hardly ever watch TV (not out of principal, only because French TV is not really my thing, and I’m too lazy to spend time channel surfing), I saw that Sean Penn/Susan Sarandon flick “Dead Man Walking” and it ….
Why is the elliptical trainer always the most popular equipment in the gym? It builds cardiovascular fitness and muscle strength, yet it’s gentle on your joints. And it’s easy to use for everyone! Running, walking and stair-climbing are all effective cardiovascular exercises. An elliptical trainer simulates those activities, but in the comfort of a gym ….
When you walk into most gyms and health clubs these days, you’ll notice all of the different types of weight training equipment and cardio machines to help get you looking trim, toned, and terrific. When it comes to cardio equipment, the traditional treadmill has a rival in Elliptical trainers. In fact it’s now common to ….
People prefer slow cookers mainly due to their ease of use. You just have to dump in the ingredients, choose between low and high for your cooking temp, set it and forget it. As a slow cooker, Ninja 3-in-1 cooking system still boasts of all those familiar preset controls on other appliances, but it’s also ….
Real Food can be quite the undertaking. In fact, my husband and I soaked a huge batch of white beans in whey over night and we are boiling them now in our huge stock pot! This process alone can take up to one full day – which is a lot more time-consuming that just popping ….

Essential oils are getting popular, but I’m leery of outlandish claims. I myself have experienced some great benefits from using essential oils, yet I’m skeptical about some of the claims that many people make about them. I believe in honesty when it comes to natural remedies and am not likely to fall for gimmicks or ….
People are different. What works for one person may not work for the next. Some people (like myself) prefer to dive in head first, make changes right away and quit everything cold turkey. Others prefer the longer, slower approach. They like to dip their toes into the water first, then walk slowly into it and ….
It’s true that we never use our full mental capacities – not by a long shot – and a lot of this is due to our daily routines. Everyday habits like taking showers, making meals and brushing our teeth are no coincidence. While habits help us to function with as little thought as possible, they ….
Getting excited over new (or renewed) discoveries can give some people a bit too much of a push that sends them over the edge with exaggerated claims. I’m not one to buy into gimmicks and claims with an ‘Us vs. Them’ approach, its insulting to consumers. Many folks in the natural path for healing are ….
