Wholesome Eating


What does it mean -- wholesome eating? It's a topic that has been covered a lot lately. The idea of wholesome eating isn't a new concept. Many think it means eating whole foods, for instance, eating a whole fruit or vegetable. But I would go a step further to say that in addition to whole foods, wholesome eating is making sure one incorporates all food groups in the diet and in reasonable portions.

Day of wine and roses


There's an old Chinese proverb that goes....."The rose has thorns only for those who would gather it."  I suppose the point of the saying is that roses are the kind of flower that should be admired and enjoyed as they bring us beauty and scent to lift our spirits, inspire us to creativity perhaps and douse us with the possibility of romance. In China, this time of year introduces the peach blossom that is a sight to behold. It is said that these blossoms are magical as they induce a spirit of romance in the one who catches hold of them as [...]
