Manage your Energy, Not your Time

I am grateful for the positive support and encouragement from friends and family for this blog.   Good ideas for blog postings quite often come from casual conversations with this wonderful group of people.  As I’ve learned about the power of the law of attraction, I’ve come to believe there  are no real coincidences.  Rather, you […]

Love is Letting Go of Fear

If you aren’t living a life of peace and fulfillment, it’s typically subconscious thoughts that are holding you back.  Many books on how to achieve happiness, wealth, better relationships, etc focus on changing our thoughts in order to achieve feelings of happiness.  As I mentioned previously, the main theme is often similar, but they have […]

Happy Father’s Day!

“Anyone can be a father, but it takes a real man to be a daddy.”  – Anonymous Happy Fathers Day to all fathers and especially to my dad, my husband and my brothers.  This is a great occasion to express gratitude towards your dad for all his love and support. While Mother’s Day was officially […]

The Power of Gratitude

Many of us are taught as children to say thank you in exchange for receiving some thing or kind words, primarily under the guise of good manners.  A parent prods the response with “what do you say?” after the child receives a gift or words of praise.  Parents are helping the child establish the habit […]

The Secret

I’ve read a number of self enlightenment books and it’s interesting how you can read a book at one point in your life and it doesn’t resonate or have much of an impact.  Another time you read a book with a similar message and it makes a big impact.  Most books about happiness, creating wealth, […]

Salisbury Steak

I always have grass fed ground beef in the freezer.  Lucky me we still have some of our very own Dexter beef.  If you have freezer space, it’s more economical (and handy) to buy grass fed ground beef in quantity.  It can keep up to a year in the freezer. You can find some Paleo […]

Paleo Cooking Resources

Yesterday I raved about Well Fed and Well Fed 2.  There are several other cookbooks I recommend as well.  Like any lifestyle change it was tough in the beginning as going Paleo means cutting out several food groups that many of us built our meals around.  After all weren’t we “breaking bread” when gathering with […]

We Love Being Well Fed

When we first embraced the paleo lifestyle, there were few paleo cookbooks available.  Over the past few years many have been published as Paleo has become more mainstream.  Initially I bought them all.   It was a low risk purchase as they were being written by people whose blogs I read almost daily and I had […]

Grain Brain

People fear getting Alzheimer’s more than death.  More and more kids are being diagnosed with ADD and ADHD.   People are overwhelmed with anxiety and depression.  There are a lot of pharmaceutical companies looking for drugs to resolve these problems once they occur.  According to neurologist Dr. David Perlmutter there is something we can do to […]

It Started With Paleo

The first real step of my journey to better health started with the Paleo Diet.  I thought we were eating healthy with a sometimes organic, low-fat, whole grain, dairy, bean, meat and vegetable/fruit diet (more fruits than veggies) – with some fast food and grain based snack foods thrown in because like most families we […]
