We all “fast” for seven or more hours at night when we sleep. If you feel a little sluggish when you miss your morning meal, you have a good reason. You’re running your “engine” on empty. Eating breakfast restores your body’s supply of blood glucose, the brain’s main fuel source.
I always have the same thing for breakfast: a piece of toast and coffee. I’m usually hungry by 10 a.m., so I grab a candy bar from the machine at work. Do you have any ideas?
Are you eating the 3.5 to 4.5 cups of fruits and vegetables recommended daily for most people? Try having an apple and some baby carrots for a snack to boost your nutrition.
I have a lot of apples on my tree, and I would like to dehydrate some. Do I need to buy a food dehydrator?
Lately we’ve been hearing a lot about overweight and obesity in the news. According to a recent report, about two of three people are overweight or obese. Being overweight places people at greater risk for diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, joint problems and other health issues.

My kids want to eat the same thing day after day. How can I help them try new foods?
