Today was my two-week post-surgical appointment with the surgeon. It went very well!
Day 4 post surgery is going even better than day 3. I woke up without a headache although I ended up with one again by the afternoon. Not sure what that’s about.Continue reading
So, day three after surgery was not as easy as days one and two. Primarily because I had a splitting headache. This is apparently a common phenomenon post surgically. The swelling in the body causes pressure on the nerve endings which can result in a headache, at least that is my understanding.Continue reading

What is it about lettuce that makes it such a divine alternative to bread?

I decided to make some mushroom soup with some chicken broth left over from a chicken that I baked. Since I’m doing keto and because I have all of my groceries delivered I was low on vegetables so the best I could do was cream of mushroom soup. I didn’t even have an onion 🙁 but decided to have a go at it anyway.Continue reading
Looking for a substitute for grains? Here you go!
I don’t think there’s a better substitute for grain than hempseed florets. I like them as a morning cereal or as a substitute for rice at dinner. They are loaded with protein, 10 grams per 3 tablespoons. They also have 15 g of polyunsaturated fat, the good fat, and finally and best of all, they have effectively one carbohydrate.
I usually use the hempseed florets as a cold cereal in the morning. They’re perfect on a keto diet! I put berries on top, some cinnamon and heavy cream. If I’m not doing keto, I use coconut or almond milk. I like this warm as well as cold.
Another great way to use hemp seed florets is in place of rice. When I use it as a rice substitute, I heat it up in water or I sauté it with onions and celery. For the sauté, use a tablespoon of coconut oil and a half cup of diced celery and onion. Sauté celery and onion until translucent then add the hemp seed florets last. Season to taste. I use adobo seasoning on mine. Hempseed is the perfect complement to any meat or dish that you would normally serve with rice.
For more information on the health benefits of Hempseed florets be sure to check out the newsletter entitled Hemp as a Super Food.

I wasn’t able to blog yesterday because I got involved in a yard project. I wanted to expand my patio by a few feet so that I could move the table and chairs into a corner and make more room for a glider for Moli and I to sit on during these gorgeous spring afternoons and evenings. It was tricky because I didn’t have any two by fours and it involved building up the side of the patio in order to level it out and accommodate a chair.Continue reading

How COVID 19 Infects Us and
What It Does Once We Are Infected
By Dr. J. Renae Norton
Lets talk about how COVID 19 actually gets into the human body, and what it does but before we do that lets take a minute to explain the difference between a virus and a bacterial infection. I think people are really confused about this, which makes it even harder to understand how this virus is spreading. I always say knowledge is power, so let’s power up!Continue reading
We use the word “binge” very casually in our society. We “binge” watch episodes of our favorite shows on DVR or Netflix. We “binge” listen to podcasts. Most of us probably “binged” on Star Wars movies before.
But when is bingeing on food actually Binge Eating Disorder?
Consider a time when you thought you were bingeing and ask yourself the following questions:
*. Did you consume an abnormally large amount of food in a short period of time as compared with what others might eat in the same amount of time under similar circumstances?
*. Did you experience a loss of control over eating during these episodes?Do you consume food faster than normal?
*. Do you feel fuller than usual?
*. Are you consuming large amounts of food when not hungry?
*. Are you consuming food alone due to embarrassment over the amount of food you are eating?
*. Do you feel disgusting, guilty or depressed after the binge?
*. Do you feel distressed about the binge?
Finally, think about your behavior over a period of time.
Has the binge eating occurred at least once a week for 3 months?
It is important to note that weight gain may or may not be associated with BED. And while there is a correlation between BED and weight gain, not everyone who is overweight binges or has BED.
If you find yourself answering yes to these questions, I am here to help.
