The Pros of Intermittent Fasting, with Caveats

The Pros of Intermittent Fasting, with Caveats

Breakfast is overrated.

Ditto eating three square meals a day.

Same with eating six small meals throughout the day.

All overrated.

What’s more in tune with an ancestral lifestyle is the practice of intermittent fasting, or skipping a few meals every once in a while, which, science says, is hugely beneficial to your body and your brain.

Bone Broth, Nutritional Rock Star

Bone Broth, Nutritional Rock Star

I started experimenting with bone broth six months ago.

Bought the crock pot. And the cheese cloth. And the industrial strength dish detergent. Found some random beef and chicken bones in my grocer’s freezer. Right next to the frozen dog food.

I dove in femur first because I’m a learn by doing type.

I’ve never had a total bone broth disaster. But I’ve learned a lot over the past six months. In today’s post I share my secrets to awesome bone broth, the benefits of “doing” bone broth on a regular basis and what to do when making it yourself is out of the question.

Friday 5–Free e-Book for Better Health.

I love Fridays!  I love the weekend.  I love the idea of Friday.  I love Friday 5. I love sharing all these good things that keep showing up to support our commitment to making ourselves and our world better. Friday means more health and happiness and ease and more opportunities to FEEL GOOD. So, here are five things I found useful, interesting, entertaining and/or helpful this week. Enjoy! My new e-book is ready and waiting for you!  It’s called On Day 22: Optimal Health for the Rest of Your Life.  In it, I share ten strategies to help you optimize your health and eliminate the hassle of getting older.  You know what I’m talking about!

It’s not always easy to find grass fed meats and when you do, the prices will definitely give you pause.  Bit if you’re going to eat meat, it’s really the only choice in terms of health.  The grain-fed stuff is toxic, even if it’s organic. Good news!  This week I heard about two options to make it easier to eat the good stuff.  And cheaper. Option one is Butcher Box.  It’s a subscription service.  Because what can’t you subscribe to these days?  It’s $129/month, which works out to $13 – $18/pound.  Okay, that’s not much cheaper, but if you have to drive an hour to get to a source, like I did when I was working in Greenwood, SC, then it may be worth it. At any rate, they have a great compare/contrast article on the benefits of grass fed v grain fed beef that’s free...
