The body that heals itself…

Just a little food for thought on a Monday morning… Isn’t it an amazing thing that the human body has the innate, natural ability to heal itself?  This means that the secrets to health and wellness lie not in bandaids and gimmicks or chemicals and elixirs, but within the natural function of the human body. …

Hail to the Kale…

Kale is like that ever-smiling, friendly neighbor you see out walking his dog in the mornings. He’s lean, full of cheer, and just wants to give you a pat on the back. Kale is that in veggie form; it just wants to make you feel great! Kale is a SuperFood by even the superest of…

More quinoa…

Well I’d say it’s about time for a new recipe post.  I apologize for the delay, but things are getting busier around here which is all anyone can hope for with a new business right?? So anywho, I’ll just jump right in to it.  I gave this recipe a try yesterday and I’m looking forward to…

Go green…and leafy…

Is it just me or are food product advertisements taking over the world!? Well those and pharmaceutical ads…but that is a story for another day. Everywhere I look I see an ad for some colorfully packaged provision boasting an above average nutrition content, claiming weight loss benefits, or making promises about various other health topics. …

We can take steps to reducing the stressors in our day-to-day lives, but to some extent stress is inevitable and will remain out of our control.  What we can control, however, is how we individually manage and…

Nuts for health…!

Jonesin’ for a snack? Instead of reaching for the box of processed crackers, the bag of greasy potato chips, or the stash of sweets try munching on some mixed nuts.  Make your own trail mix in the bulk section of the grocery store and just keep a jar of it on hand.  This just happens…

Snackin’…

I have to give credit to my dear cousin Brita for this one; a lady who knows her way around the kitchen.  I really love chickpeas–they have such a great buttery flavor and they are a wonderful source of fiber, zinc, folate, and protein. Did you know that chickpeas are also called garbanzo beans? So…

Pico with peppers…

Make your own salsa!!  Sharpen your knife skills (pun intended) and do some chopping with this recipe. Pico de Gallo (pronounced peeko day guy-o)  salsa is a nice, fresh treat in the summer months.  Again, it has that cilantro/lime combo that I love so much. Go ahead, give it a try.  You know you want…

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!…
