The Brunch Dilema

The Brunch Dilema

The word Brunch conjures all kinds of images for me, mostly savory, but sometimes sweet.  Just thinking of all the wonderful foods available on a brunch menu, ranging from gourmet pancakes to bacon and egg dishes.  Breakfast is definitely my favorite meal, first because there are so many options of what to eat, second because … Continue reading

Eat These Chips!

Eat These Chips!

When I was growing up, Arthur Treacher’s Fish and Chips was a popular fast food franchise.  Eating fast food fish was praised as a healthy choice.  Here’s the breakdown for the standard Fish & Chips dinner: 1590 calories, 86 g of fat, 95 mg cholesterol, 2980 mg sodium, 163 g carbs, 10 g fiber, 44 … Continue reading

Paleo Dollar Meal!

Paleo Dollar Meal!

I hear over and over again that it’s expensive to eat healthy.  I think it’s the opposite.  Think of all the unhealthy things you can eat that appear to be “cheap”: pasta, bread, corn, potatoes, fast food.  Problem is, we buy so much of it because we don’t get the nutrients we need from them … Continue reading
