Why Mammograms Don’t Appear to Save Lives

“Early” detection is actually really late. Without mammograms, breast cancer may not be caught for an average of 22.8 years, but with mammograms, breast cancer may only grow and spread for 21.4 years.

I Survived Whole30! Here Are The Results

Let me be the first to admit that I was skeptical. What Is Whole30? Whole30 is a very popular elimination you typically see all of your friends attempting after new years. The official rules say that for 30 days you cannot consume any added sugars (real or artificial), alcohol, grains, legumes, dairy, sulfites, or MSG. Basically, you’re sticking to fruit, meat and vegetables. As if being restrictive weren’t a challenge enough, Whole30 has one other important stipulation. If you cheat and eat one of the forbidden foods, you […]

Welcome to: The Amino Profile

If you’ve ever taken a high-school Biology class, you may remember a little thing called ‘amino acids.’ Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, and if you’ve ever stepped into a gym, you’re likely to hear the word ‘protein’ at least a hundred times before you leave (*not scientifically proven but probably true), so you can imagine the importance of amino acids in fitness. Amino acids are prized in the bodybuilding world as the source for everything from energy, recovery, muscle hypertrophy, fat loss, to strength […]

Sprouting

We are into the part of the winter (because it’s technically still winter) where we get surprise 75-degree days. We have had quite a few in the last few weeks, and I have seen flowers sprouting up from the ground around town! I sure hope a blanket of snow doesn’t surprise us all. Breakfast Mazen won’t eat eggs, but he loves French toast, so it’s one of the ways I get nutritious eggs in him. I am pretty sure I fed him scrambled eggs his whole second […]

No Soup For You!

You may remember this phrase from the popular 90’s American TV series “Seinfeld.” This phrase caused so many of us to chuckle as the fictional character “The Soup Nazi” refused to serve certain customers in his restaurant. His quick dismissal of these individuals was often for reasons known only to him, leaving his victims feeling dejected and hungry. They lived in fear of provoking his hidden sources of frustration, which would cause him to blurt out the famous phrase, “No Soup For You!” Many people fear that […]

Curried Chicken Soup

Here is a variation on chicken soup that’s rich with the flavors of curry, shiitake mushrooms, and cilantro. It’s thickened with coconut milk to induce satiety. The best results are obtained by using homemade chicken broth, though store-bought (look for brands without wheat flour, cornstarch, or other grain derivatives) still yields a delicious end result. Makes 6 servings. ¼ cup coconut oil 1 pound chicken breasts, cubed 4 ounces shiitake mushrooms, sliced 1 quart chicken broth 2 cans (14 ounces each) coconut milk ¼ cup curry powder […]
