posted a Quick Tip about Avocado. February 11, 2013
Avocado is probably my favorite fruit, because of the fact that despite being a fruit, it's an excellent ingredient in so many savory dishes.  My favorite use of the avocado is for making guacamole, which is a perfect thing to go with meats like chicken or steak, and of course, as the ideal dip for tortilla chips.

Ice Hockey
Welcome to the greatest sport on Earth. You take a bunch of guys, put them in ice skates, give them sticks, and let them go out and fight over a small rubber disc. Next to ice hockey, everything else looks like it was made for ADD.

Little Debbie Snacks Cloud Cakes, 10-Count Box
         I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, for the last time, I know! It isn't a Twinkie, but, since Hostess's unfortunate fiscal collapse, it's the closest we've been in a long time. I happened across an article in a business section of a newspaper that talked about how Little Debbie was going to use her 'street smarts' to launch what the …

The connection of sport and fitness
Honestly, killing the ESPN contract probably killed any hope the league ever had of becoming a major sport in this country. All the ways Bettman tried to grow the sport were destroyed by it because now …

The connection of sport and fitness
It's stupid that the NHL apparently believes it's the only option. There are many in this country. I can follow the NBA a bit more, and I'm finally learning to enjoy it. 
posted a Quick Tip about Gardening. September 09, 2012
Plants create oxygen, so gardening is always a good thing. There are strategies and challenges to it too. It isn't just planting the seed into the soil, watering it sometimes, and letting nature take its course. There are certain plants you have to strategically plant according to season, terrain, and to get them however much sunlight they might need.

Super Size Me
What can I say?  This is ridiculously stupid for the fact that Morgan Spurlock tries to point out how unhealthy McDonald's food is by eating it for a whole month.  Of course if you eat crap like that for a month, you're gonna get tons of health problems.  But really, if you eat too much of anything, even healthy foods (such as only eating fruit for a whole month), you're …

Rainbow Light Brain & Focus Multivitamin
I like that Rainbow Light's Brain & Focus Multi is a food-base formula rather than something only concocted in the lab. This gives it better bio-availability and it is less harsh on you system. Many multis have given me an upset stomach if I don't eat food with them, but not these. That said, I'd still make sure I took these with a meal for better absorption. On that point, the daily …

Oral-B Smartseries 5000 Professional Care
I enjoy using the Oral-B Smartseries 5000. In addition, I have a slim Oral-B Pulsonic that I use when traveling. I also have an Oral-B Professional Care 3000 that does a decent job of cleaning. Its brush head is smaller and less effective than the 5000's, and it has only 3 modes rather than 5 and doesn't come with a SmartGuide™. The 5000 is less bulky and seems to hold a charge longer …
posted a Quick Tip about Fruit. July 24, 2012
Nature's candy. Tastes good, provides sugars that won't kill you and essential vitamins, and comes in a million different varieties. I usually try to eat fruit with my breakfast.

Supermarket Vegan: 225 Meat-Free, Egg-Free, Dairy-Free Recipes for Real Peoplein the Real World
   What you see is what you get in this cookbook. There isn't a breakdown of why to go vegan or what vegan looks like. Instead the book gets right to the recipes. And the ingredients in the recipes should be in most grocery stores.      I think this Is going to be a great resource for someone who knows the whys of going vegan but doesn't know where to start.   …

Thrive Foods: 200 Plant-Based Recipes for Peak Health
I haven't checked out Brendan Brazier's previous two books, but, since my public library had Thrive Foods, I did indeed check this one out.      Brazier's why to go plant-based is very compellingly presented. He has done some serious homework. The first 100 or so pages of Thrive Foods is focused on the realities of nutrition and why the Standard American Diet is not …

A useful plant which can be rather easily turned into a good pasta dish.
posted a Quick Tip about Sleep. December 09, 2011
The third greatest thing in life (as with daily routine). It is re-vitalizing, healing and a significant part of life. Sleep is very important and gives the brain time to reboot itself from the stresses of life. I like dreaming too.... :)
