TTR – Strawberries

Sweet delicious strawberries are one of spring’s better crops; especially when they’re locally grown, freshly picked and the air is filled with smell of ripe strawberries, yum! Bursting in vitamin C and fiber, who doesn’t love strawberries? Their heart shape should tell you that this is a fruit that will help promote healthy hearts. Besides… Read more

Is it your Thyroid?

There is nothing more frustrating than eating a healthy diet, exercising and not losing weight. Doctors look at you suspiciously when you air your complaint (as if you have a 2 pound bag of M & M’s hiding in your purse) and your girlfriends think you’re living in denial. What’s really going on?

Dinner Diva – Sodium

You will notice in a lot of my recipes, I say “salt and pepper to taste” There is a reason for this–not because I’m trying to frustrate you! Salt should be added slowly and, depending on the recipes, in steps. That’s how the pros do it and it makes sense–this is how to get the… Read more
