Why I get adjusted…

Do I get adjusted for backaches, headaches, neck pain/tension, knee pain, or all those other little twinges I feel with day to day life?  Sure.  Keeping the spine in alignment and moving is great for helping the body work efficiently as a mechanical unit.  But does chiropractic care do more than that?? Yes, much more!…

Sitting, sitting, sitting…

Here’s one for all you daytime desk commandos out there.  We are a society of sitters.  Many of us sit all day long. We wake up and maybe sit down at the table to eat our breakfast, then we sit as we drive to work.  We get to work, take a seat at our desk and maybe…

Gotta love the slow cooker…

The health goal here is really just to be cooking actual food.  This would be a great dinner option to get us away from the packaged meals or fast food. SLOW COOKER ASIAN BEEF -Beef chuck roast -1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce -1/2 tsp ground allspice -1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes -2 Tbsp brown…

Salad made simple…

Well it is summer, which means it is time for veggies and fresh summer salads!  I have several salad dressing recipes I’ll most likely share with you here, but since we’re getting into the busy mid-week I’ll share this one that just couldn’t be simpler. The thing about most of the store-bought, bottled salad dressings…

Homemade Energy

Make your own energy drink with chia seeds! Yes, that’s chia seeds as in the chia pets with the crazy plant hair.  In the realm of nutrition these little seeds pack quite a large punch.  Chia was valued by the Aztecs as a “superfood.”  The seeds contain protein, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids—including high amounts…

Quinoa Salsa

I call this dish quinoa salsa and it is a favorite of mine.  I usually make a large batch and split it into storage containers to bring for work lunches.  Sometimes I just eat it plain with a spoon, sometimes I splurge with some tortilla chips, and I’ve even eaten it using lettuce leaves as…
