  • Lunch Today: Spring Soup with Asparagus and Peas

    by Paula Gallagher | March 20, 2019

    Other than maple syrup, asparagus and peas are some of my favorite springtime produce. Their bright green color and fresh mild flavors really start to make me feel like spring is here! Although nothing beats fresh peas right out of the pod or lightly steamed fresh asparagus, this spring soup may be a close second.

    Asparagus is high in folate and prebiotics as well as vitamin K, fiber, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, zinc, vitamins A, C, B and E, and the phytochemicals beta-carotene and chlorophyll. Talk about a superfood! Read more

Fats in particular become very difficult to digest. In the past, the solution has been to avoid fats altogether. The problem with that is that fats are important and without them, skin issues, vision and eye problems, fatty tumors, bruising, and many other problems occur.

    The gallbladder plays a key role in digestion of fats. Read more

  • Live a Greener Lifestyle: 5 Things You Do Not Need in Your Home

    by Paula Gallagher | March 13, 2019

    In an effort both to live a greener lifestyle and save some money, I began making some small changes at my house. At first it seemed daunting and undoable, especially with a busy schedule and two young children, but after a few weeks and with some thought, we have cut down a lot on paper and plastic and we really don't miss these items like I thought we would. One of the biggest wastes is single-use plastic, such as water bottles, Ziploc bags and plastic wrap. Over half of the plastic we produce is for single use purposes and it is estimated that as much as 91% is not recycled. Much of it ends up in our oceans. So armed with that stat alone, we started our switch. Read more
