Did Going Vegan Lower My Cholesterol?

So I told you last August I went vegan to lower my cholesterol.  Yesterday I had a biometric screening for my insurance- my employer requires it for me to get lower insurance costs. I get a basic health exam and if the health professionals find something wrong, like say high blood pressure or diabetes, I would have … Continue reading

But Don’t Take My Word for It…

Recently I blogged  about the health benefits of a vegan diet. Well, lo and behold, I get an email from Faunalytics (a research library for those of us promoting a more humane lifestyle) that includes an abstract from a position paper published by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics providing guidelines for helping vegans and vegetarians reach optimal … Continue reading

Sound Reasons for Going Vegan that Don’t Include Animal Cruelty

January is Veganuary, a month-long promotion to get you to consider going vegan, or at least to enjoy a few meat-free meals.  I’m a most unlikely vegan spokesperson because, while female, I am not young, blonde, or thin, and I don’t walk around in my underwear with PETA signs (you can thank me with money). … Continue reading

Healing Energy Coming Right Up!

  A couple of days ago, two young women walked by me. They were chatting amiably and laughing, as good friends do. Suddenly I felt a rush of energy pass right through me. I smiled. It felt so good. In these days where there is such anger and animosity, it’s refreshing to see people who are happy. … Continue reading

So How’s That Vegan Thing Going Anyway?

Depends on who you ask. Rumpy is not pleased. He misses bites of tasty morsels as I noshed to my heart’s content. Last week I was checking out at the grocery, and the kid ringing me up asked if someone in my home had a dairy allergy. I said no, this way of eating is a choice. … Continue reading

If you’re interested in American History, I highly recommend signing up. This week’s show talks about the work ethic in America. … Continue reading

Women Shaming Other Women? Shame on You!

This morning on Facebook a local news outlet had posted a heartwarming story of police officers giving out ice cream to community kids on a hot day. But many of the comments in the thread were about one young woman in one of the photos who wasn’t wearing a bra. “You should have bought her a bra.” “No … Continue reading

Going Vegan

I recently had my cholesterol tested. Though still healthy, the LDL number has creeped up, and it was recommended I start now to make changes to keep those levels from creeping higher. This is a big deal, because there’s a significant history of heart disease on both sides of my family. So I’ve ramped up my exercise … Continue reading

The Gift of Health, Courtesy of Rumpy and JB

Among the many gifts given me by Rumpy and June Buggie is the gift of health. Because of Rumpy I get out and get moving each day. June Buggie keeps me on a regular schedule with his insistence he be fed at the same time each morning. And then there is the gift of mental … Continue reading

The Soothing Sound of a Purring Cat

This morning I woke to find June Buggie lying on my chest purring loudly. Immediately a feeling of peace washed over me. How is that? Purring happens when cats contract both their laryngeal and diaphragmatic muscles. That’s how they can purr while inhaling and exhaling. Purring happens at low frequencies of between 25 and 150 hertz. This … Continue reading
