The Guest Story
Coming home from a long day, I noticed four children playing in my yard just after the school bus dropped them off. "Children, y'all are tresspassin' and that's totally not cool." I told them. They seemed reluctant to go home even though they were my next-d...

Trail Mix Trail Mix
I'd been wanting to make some trail mix lately, but I tend to find the proportions daunting. But as far as I can tell, there's no rule against using a trail mix as a basis upon which to make trail mix. So I started off with a can of Planters Nut-rition Whol...

A Tradition of Tea
Part of my sugar addiction problem is tea. I used to drink a gallon a day - easily. It was only reluctantly that I tapered it down to a half-gallon, but the upside was that I'd be more likely to drink it hot than cold and therefore more of it sooner than la...

Natural Goodness
I'm a creature of habit. I tend to eat my food just one way - the same way - every time. So it is with my strawberries - I always eat them with a few teaspoons of sugar. So it blew my mind just now to actually enjoy plain strawberries. Why was I covering up...

Some Considerations
I have some challenges that make Whole30 a bit of a bear. The speck of a town that I live in has no grocery stores. The nearest store to me that sells food doesn't have a produce section - it has just about all the cheap shelf-stable junk food you could eve...
