Monday, December 14, 2015 2

If you happen to be in the vicinity of southern Minnesota or close to Hwy 169, I suggest you find your way to the city of Amboy for a bite to eat at The Amboy Cottage Café.  It's a quaint, European inspired eatery serving up delicious homemade food like "grandmother" used to make!  Their euro-style exterior and cozy, decorative interior make ...

As a healthy living advocate, I'm always trying to encourage people to avoid processed, toxic foods.  Those manufactured foods that do nothing but harm our bodies.  Unfortunately, most grocery stores aren't doing the same.  They have aisles devoted solely to chips, cookies and soda, and carry products that utilize tricky labeling to appear healthy when they are anything ...

Sometimes my Irish heritage kicks me in the butt and says (with an Irish accent of course),  "Make me a hearty bowl of oatmeal!"  Today was one of those days! Does this mean break out the peaches and cream instant oatmeal or the Quaker quick cooking oats?? Absolutely not!  Ever since I switched to steel-cut oats, soaked ...

There aren't many supplements stocked in my kitchen cabinets these days.  I have a few that I feel are necessary due to my high activity level, but that's it! I would much rather sink my teeth into a traditional, wholesome meal to give my body nourishment than pop pills that may or may not benefit me.  I'm pretty sure ...
