Save on Prescription Medicine For Your Family

If your family takes any prescription medicine at all, then you know prescriptions can get expensive.

Granted, we do our best to stay healthy and boost our immune systems, so we rarely need prescription medicine, but there are times when it is the best choice for what…

5 High Fat Foods To Help You Lose Weight

We have heard it before: Gram for gram, fat has more than twice the calories of protein or carbohydrates, and eating too many calories leads to weight gain; therefore, people should eat less fat. Right? Not so fast. While reducing calories does work for short-term weight loss, sustainable, long-term weight loss is a bit more complicated. According to the The Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology, long-term weight loss depends on how the body processes and interacts with food and all its nutrients, not just its calories. How else could…

If you are a mom of lots of little people, it can seem…daunting, to say the least. Thankfully, my family has been pretty healthy over the years. We only caught the flu once a few years ago, and it was the B strain, which is the milder of the two. We do get colds and some respiratory…

How To Get Started With Intermittent Fasting

There’s a lot of talk about Intermittent Fasting lately. Everyone wants to know if intermittent fasting will benefit them and then how to actually get started. Intermittent fasting isn’t a new phenomenon. When we eat this way, we are really mimicking the life of our ancestors. Food was not available to them 24 hours a day. Fasting is not a form of starving ourselves, either. Essentially, it is just an extension of what we already do. Most of us fast…
