Gluten Free St. Patrick’s Day Fun and a Recipe for Shamrock Smoothies

Healthy St Patricks Day Recipes for Kids

  St. Patrick’s Day has always been a fun holiday for me, everything from pinching the poor hapless soul who doesn’t wear green (or orange!) to chugging more than my fair share of green beer back in college. Funny, I can’t seem to recall partaking in any other tradition for St. Patty’s day. Must have […]

Kaempferol and an Anti-Ovarian Cancer “Green” Smoothie

Green Smoothie Recipe

Ovarian cancer remains the most deadly form of gynecologic cancer, mainly due to the fact that the vast majority of women are not diagnosed until the disease has become very advanced.  Due to its high mortality rate, it certainly makes sense to take preventative measures, especially if you have a family history and diet is […]

Detox January and a “Blues Clues Smoothie”

Green Smoothie2

When was the last time you said ‘I love you’ to yourself? Was it with a quiet day at the spa? A cucumber eye treatment with a purifying avocado, kale and lemon masque perhaps? Prior to a few days ago, that would have been my idea of self pampering.  I’m great at wearing green veggies […]

We, like many people, went through a tough time when the economy tanked in 2008.  Since changes in the stock market can affect our income, I’m sure you can imagine just how tight things became around here!  We sought out all sorts of ways to cut costs and a funny thing happened in the process… […]

Homemade Limeade Concentrate

I love Limeade, especially during the hot summer months.  I find it to be even more refreshing than Lemonade or water for that matter.   While I have been learning to reach for water first, or even sparkling water with a spritz of freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice (no added sweetener), I still enjoy […]
