BH4BP #33 – Being Healthy: Tee Morris’s Journey

This week we are going to do something different with the show.  A few weeks ago on Show #26, I talked about my journey to becoming healthier.  That show got a really positive response, so I thought that it would be interesting to all of you if I interviewed a guest occasionally and discussed how […]

Iceberg: Bad for the Titanic and for Your Salad

Photo by Geoff604 via Flickr Salads can be a highly nutritious meal, if you use the right ingredients.  But, if you are choosing iceberg lettuce to put in your salad, you are sinking the nutritional benefits that you would receive from selecting a different leafy green. Iceberg lettuce may be the most popular lettuce, but […]

Don’t Pollute Your Air While Cleaning Your Floor

Photo by C. Anderson via Flickr Oh, no!  Its time to clean the house again!  I am always surprised how quickly the bathrooms get dirty and dust accumulates on every surface in the house.  Like most people, I dislike the cleaning process, but do like having a clean house. Most of us are constantly striving […]

Exercise Programs: How to Go the Distance

Photo by TimWilson via Flickr The first few months of the year are always super busy at the gym. The place is jam packed with new people.  There are waits for aerobic equipment that make amusement park lines seem fast in comparison and sometimes it seems that all the weight equipment you want to use […]

Bübi Baby Butter a Perfect Choice for Your Baby!

I was introduced to bübi baby butter two months ago by Vanessa Kemp, owner of Love TIA.  It was perfect timing, because I was in the process of looking for a better diaper cream for my son, who was 9 months old at the time.  He was getting frequent diaper rashes and the products that […]

BH4BP #30 – Beef or Mock Meat: What’s for Dinner?

Photo by VirtualErn via Flickr I know it seems like everywhere you go, people are telling you the healthiest thing you can do is to go vegetarian. I also know that many of you enjoy a nice, juicy steak or hamburger once in a while and don’t plan to give it up anytime soon. Others […]

Peppers: Hot and Healthy

Photo by Darwin Bell via Flickr One time, back when I used to live in the Seattle area, I went to a popular lunch spot in Bellevue called Dixie’s.  It was a southern BBQ restaurant (not healthy mind you) that looked like it might have been an automotive shop before.  What made this place special […]

Know Your Fats

Photo by Voedingscentrum via Flickr Fat?  Not that word again! The word fat has such a bad connotation. Many people think of fat only as the cause of obesity, clogged arteries, heart disease and many other medical problems.  While that’s all true, it’s too simplistic of a view. Too much fat is bad for you.  […]

BH4BP #29 – Running: The Gold Standard of Exercise

Today I would like to talk about a subject that is dear to my heart.  That’s right, running.  Both my dad and mom were runners.  They got me started competing in track when I was in elementary school and I have been running ever since. Running is really the gold standard of exercise. It is […]

Food Labels: It Looks Good, But What’s Inside

Photo by oskay via Flickr When many of us go grocery shopping, our purchases are driven by our senses.  We shop by what looks good at the moment, instead of considering what is inside the product.  If an item looks or smells good, it often ends up in the basket.  But, for those of us […]
