    •         I was thrilled with the show, watching a few stories of woman who have changed their diets or even started to recognize how frequently we are feeding our children foods that we all should be avoided. Even if it just starts to open peoples eyes to the idea that diet and disease are linked then we are getting somewhere. 

      I cannot wait to see the film, I may have to wait quite a while or plan a flight outside of the state to find it!



      Highlights from the show today-

      Three foods we MUST AVOID:

      #1-If it has a parents and a face-DO NOT EAT IT! 

      *That includes fish, I was a little surprised by that, but he explained it well. We get a lot of bad fats while getting that small amount omega-3's.

      #2 DAIRY!!

      It is the biggest contributor saturated fats! WHOA bigger than meat.

      #3 Processed foods- really if it comes from a box or has to have a label to explain what it is, AVOID IT!

      * EVEN OLIVE OIL, Its processed.

      Dr Bernard gave a couple of suggestions for salad dressing without oils.  He said he loves to squeeze a fresh lemon over his salad instead of dressings.

      We have so many fantastic recipes that follow these guidelines. Disease can be prevented! CANCERS AND HEART DISEASE!! Let's pave the way, make the change, demand better!!

    • Can ADHD be cured through diet?

    • I stumbled across this article the other night and quite frankly I wasn't surprised with the results of the study. What was disappointing however is that with the results it will take a lot more than just a few studies to open peoples eyes to this idea.

      Study: Diet May Help ADHD Kids More Than Drugs

      "Hyperactivity. Fidgeting. Inattention. Impulsivity. If your child has one or more of these qualities on a regular basis, you may be told that he or she has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. If so, they'd be among about 10 percent of children in the United States.

      Kids with ADHD can be restless and difficult to handle. Many of them are treated with drugs, but a new study says food may be the key. Published in The Lancet journal, the study suggests that with a very restrictive diet, kids with ADHD could experience a significant reduction in symptoms. 


      Pelsser compares ADHD to eczema. "The skin is affected, but a lot of people get eczema because of a latex allergy or because they are eating a pineapple or strawberries."

      According to Pelsser, 64 percent of children diagnosed with ADHD are actually experiencing a hypersensitivity to food. Researchers determined that by starting kids on a very elaborate diet, then restricting it over a few weeks' time.


      Teachers and doctors who worked with children in the study reported marked changes in behavior. "In fact, they were flabbergasted," Pelsser says.

      "After the diet, they were just normal children with normal behavior," she says. No longer were they easily distracted or forgetful, and the temper tantrums subsided.

      Some teachers said they never thought it would work, Pelsser says. "It was so strange," she says, "that a diet would change the behavior of a child as thoroughly as they saw it. It was a miracle, a teacher said."


      But diet is not the solution for all children with ADHD, Pelsser cautions.

      "In all children, we should start with diet research," she says. If a child's behavior doesn't change, then drugs may still be necessary. "But now we are giving them all drugs, and I think that's a huge mistake," she says.

      Also, Pelsser warns, altering your child's diet without a doctor's supervision is inadvisable.

      "We have got good news — that food is the main cause of ADHD," she says. "We've got bad news — that we have to train physicians to monitor this procedure because it cannot be done by a physician who is not trained."

    • I spent this last weekend and a fantastic event with my husband. While sitting during a break, I glanced over at a magazine the guy next to me was reading and was SHOCKED to read the headline: "McWEDDINGS".. with a picture of a big mac with a cake topper on it. Mcdonalds is now offering a wedding service!!! Of course I did a double or even a triple take (in a sneaky non creepy way over the guys shoulder). Then I tapped  my husband and pointed it out. I am not sure how new this info is, but man I just started thinking they will do ANYTHING for buck! 





      You get to start your blissful marriage at McDonalds and end it something like this (a commercial from PCRM):



      It is time to take a stand and make better choices.
