Hungry like the Bear?

  YES, that is a picture of an enormous black bear that’s making its way through Harvard Ma.  I wish I took a picture of the sky today. How beautiful was the Earth this morning?! Before it started raining the lighting at around 6:30am was glorious. Right out the gate today is starting off much better...

I’m sorry, but coffee is not breakfast.

Back in the swing of things yet? The school year has just begun. You, most likely have less than 20 minutes to slap on some deodorant and put your hair in a clip before pilling everyone into the car. I don’t have children, so I may not fully understand the mad dash most of you endure...

Cakes, cookies, pies, ice cream, candy, soda are some obvious food choices that traditionally contain sugar. These are foods that are marketed as “dessert.” What if you were consuming products on a daily basis that were not deemed “dessert” but had the same sugar content? Would that surprise you? There are plenty of processed food...
