Starting a Food Blog for Your Health...

Feb 22, 2018 by

Accountability is a key ingredient in dieting. If we aren’t careful, we can fool ourselves into thinking that we are eating right and well.

Historically, this has been done through a diary. This idea still holds up today, but the value and power of that diary have been magnified by the internet. If you log your diet and exercise through a blog, you not only keep track of your food, progress, cheats, successes and failures, you share it with the world. By opening up yourself to worldwide observation you have created a powerful motivation to stay on track. And nowadays, finding a great domain name...

Exercises Following Shoulder Injury...

Feb 20, 2018 by

One of the largest and most complex joints in the body, the shoulder is a combination of bones, ligaments, tendons, cartilage and muscles, designed to be amazingly flexible to allow for our wide range of motion.

Shoulder pain or decreased range of motion may mean there is an issue with the joint itself or with the surrounding muscles, ligaments and tendons. One of the more common problems is a tear in the rotator cuff, which is the group of four tendons and muscles that stabilize the shoulder joint. Our ability to rotate our arms...

Feb 20, 2018 by

Coffee. First thing in the morning. No exceptions. No negotiation. Even if you, personally, are not a coffee drinker, you probably live with one and recognize the futility of trying to converse or do pretty much anything until at least that first cup of coffee has been consumed. It doesn’t matter if we are talking about folks living in a high-rise in New York City or on the family farm in Iowa. For more than 60 percent of Americans, coffee starts the morning with us and travels with us throughout the rest of the day.   It may be that there are places where people are more obsessed with the kind of coffee they drink than others are.

Try These 3 Healthier Alternatives to Frying Your Food...

Feb 20, 2018 by

It really is too bad, not to mention totally unfair, that it seems to be a rule of the universe that those things we love the most are so often the worst for us. Not everything, of course.

This is not the case when it comes to fried chicken, greasy burgers, French fries, chicken tenders, mozzarella sticks, hush puppies, egg rolls and, well, you get the picture. We love fried food, and it is bad for us in so many ways.

Foods Associated with California...

Feb 20, 2018 by

What springs to mind when you think about California? Hollywood and movie stars? The Golden Gate Bridge? Yosemite? Big Sur? The breathtaking coastline? Hearst Castle? The redwoods of Muir Woods?

Who would have believed that in only a couple hundred years the vineyards of California would be producing wine that is in high demand all over the world?...
