Kindness Isn’t Just For Humans

When I think about living a life filled with abundance, I cannot imagine that life without animals. I have been an animal lover my whole life. I started out with goldfish (that cost about $.05 a piece and lasted about a day) and added two tiny turtles I named “NoNo” and “SoSo.” They lasted quite […]

Take Care of Your Health Before You Get Sick

This morning as I was reading my bible, there was a passage that stood out to me. From the Wisdom of Sirach 18:18 in my Orthodox Bible it says, “Before you speak, learn, and before you get sick, take care of your health.” Not only did it stand out for me when I read it, […]

20 Ways to Eat Like a Greek for Longevity

Want to make your home into a longevity hotspot? Start with the kitchen! Earlier this week, I blogged about Ikaria, Greece (aka The Island Where People Forget To Die). The people of Ikaria eat what most people refer to as a Mediterranean Diet. The real Mediterranean diet has been shown to lower rates of cancer, […]

Living to 100 – Can You Do It?

Many of you know I have a great interest in health and longevity. In fact, I even teach a class on it using all of the information I have gathered over the last few years. While nothing can guarantee that you will live a longer life, there are obvious things such as quitting smoking and […]

Should You Be Fasting?

For me, that answer is yes! Let me tell you why! Every year, our family celebrates what we refer to as “Family Week” even though it lasts for 10 days. Family Week begins with my husband’s and my wedding anniversary on the 8th, our daughter’s birthday on the 11th, Father’s Day and finally, his birthday […]

Can You Really Live Longer In A “Blue Zone”?

Most of you know my love for the book and website “Blue Zones.” I was first introduced to Dan Buettner and his work with Blue Zones by watching Oprah about 3 years ago. I immediately went out and purchased his book by the same name. You can find it in the recommending reading section of […]

Obesity Is Caused By Processed Food

In what would seem like a no-brainer, we now know that obesity is caused by processed food. From Mercola: One interesting fact is that, in contrast to third-world countries, in the US the poorest people have the highest obesity rates. This seeming contradiction is, I believe, a clear indication that the problem stems from the […]

Raw Corn Chowder Recipe

I was going to make some version of a creamy cucumber soup tonight, but I saw some delicious looking corn on the cob this morning and grabbed 5 ears. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them, but this afternoon, I got a huge graving for corn chowder. I started searching the […]

Going Vegetarian

My husband and I are Orthodox Christians and attend a local Greek Orthodox Church. Usually twice a week and during certain times of the year (like Lent), we abstain from meat (and if you’re strict, dairy as well). We were usually pretty good about abstaining from meat; however, my meatless menu would include things like […]
