Greetings and welcome,

If you have arrived on this page, you probably have an interest in your health. Really healthy now can mean living a quality life later. Sometimes we are willing to take a chance with our own health, but for our children, not so much.

Dang, we are busy people with jobs, kids playing every sport imaginable, kids who always seem to be sick with something, and colds/flu/miscellaneous afflictions of our very own.

We think everybody is sick, off and on. But in truth, really healthy people are rarely sick. And they don’t talk about it. How many Facebook posts say something like “Gosh, I feel so great today.”

Don’t be fooled. Frequent doctor visits and medications (including over the counter drugs) reflects a lack of health. Gaining weight slowly (or not so slowly) over time reflects a lack of health. At the core of health is your diet. And this is where we can all get into trouble.

Busy people are always looking for a cheap and easy way to get food in our family’s mouths. At home we tend to whip up the stuff that the food companies make so convenient for us busy folks. The temptation to “grab a bite” on the way to wherever you are going is enormous because it is so easy.

Commercial food manufacturers and fast food restaurants find us to be suckers, leading us down the cheap and easy garden path. If this is your diet and you or your kids aren’t’ sick yet, have faith.  It will happen eventually.

Follow me on my Facebook page and this website. In your interest I do my own following of expert doctors, scientists, researchers, etc, keeping up with new information.

Here is what following me buys you:

  • Easy but also nutritious recipes that I think can fit into your lifestyle. I will explain in simple terms how each recipe adds health value,
  • Blogs covering important health conditions caused or negatively impacted by diet.

My book, It’s All about the Food, tells you what a healthy diet looks like and explains in pretty simple terms why that’s important. Click here to read the reviews. Then buy the book and put it on top of your to-read stack.

Click on “categories” on the right hand side of this web page and then click on any category you want to know more about. One of the categories is “Recipes.” Or enter a search term by the magnifying glass at the top of the page. Any blogs I have posted within that category will immediately pop up on your screen.

If you have any questions or ideas on how I can make this website more helpful to you, click on “Contact” at the top of the screen and tell me about it. I promise to be responsive.
