Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting turns everything I ever read/thought I knew about eating well (and especially about eating breakfast) upside down and inside out. For all the information I have read about not starving the body, intermittent fasting (or IT) says our body needs a...

Favorite green juice

Favorite green juice

I have been making my favorite green juice today. It is a fairly simple recipe and very light on the 'green' taste. Plus it is economical because you get a lot of juice out of the vegetables. One of the downsides of juicing carrots is you need a lot of carrots to make...
