I have been a member of Facebook since 2009. I literally had no use for Facebook and the soon-to-be-irrelevant Myspace at the time, but at the encouragement of my nieces and nephews, I signed up and became yet another willing participant in the social media experiment. What originally passed a...

"More Pasta?"

"No thanks, I just lost my appetite"


For many of us, dieting advice is easy to abide by: eat smaller portions, reduce sodium intake, drink more water, avoid processed foods, etc. However, some diet fads can make one question the very foundation of their belief systems when it comes to food. One th...

America's Obesity Problem

Posted on May 17, 2012 at 10:30 AM Comments comments (1)

  One of the greatest freedoms we enjoy in America is the right to choose. This is evident from the millions of food products lining the shelves of our supermarkets, countless restaurants ranging from fast food to fine dining, as well as take out food, catering, and even vending machines. We even have a cable channel devoted to the preparation and consumption of food. We want for nothing when it comes to our choices in food item...

Whatever this email claims will happen to those who do not heed the warning will be much worse if we do not forward this email to at least everyone in our contact list. This email is vague on sources if it supplies any at all; but the message urgently screaming at us in bold, red, capital letters removes all do...

It's a new year. what now?

Posted on January 3, 2012 at 11:10 AM Comments comments (0)

 The Christmas decorations have been taken down, the party hats and whistles swept away. The family is headed home and resolutions have been made. Collectively, we tell ourselves that this year will be different. This is the year that we are going to lose weight, exercise more, quit smoking, drink less, pray more, fix whatever is broken in our homes and in ourselves. Then the sense of deja vu sets in.
