I am flipping ecstatic right now! Guess what showed up in the mail today? Huh?! Huh?! No guesses?! My SCOBY! What in the hell is a SCOBY, you ask? SCOBY stands for Symbiotic Colony Of Bacteria and Yeast, and can also be known as a "mother" or "mushroom". Don't be confused; this is no fungi, but a …
Black Seed Oil: Cures Everything but Death
This is too great of a post not to share! Lemon juice, ginger, and milk thistle are must-haves in my daily regimen. While I haven’t yet tried black seed oil, the little research that I have done this morning suggests that this is a powerful immune boost and overall wonderful addition to any diet.

You Say Toe-may-toe, I Say Toe-mah-toe
Describing my dad’s garden in Brussel Sprouts That Don’t Taste Like a Cave must have got me in the mood for my garden, because last night, after the kids were in bed and the dinner dishes done, I couldn’t wait to start my seeds for this year’s garden. Armed with a pair of tweezers and …
YOU are Not a Waste of Time
I have been a slug for the past couple of weeks. My usual active and healthy lifestyle has been neglected, and I have a million and one excuses. The constant below-freezing temperatures and snow on the ground makes it almost unbearable to go outside. When I do slug my way over to the gym, the …
