Worth Double

Because I have two children who were born preemies, I know full well how far medical advances have come in the area of NICU and PICU. I get emails from the March of Dimes, and this fundraising drive caught my eye. I am copying this directly from the March of Dimes website:

Hallee on the Issues: Government Mandated Health Insurance

No one can deny that there is a health crisis in America. The generation we are raising today is the first generation in history that will not live longer than their parents. High blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, morbid obesity, autism, Type II diabetes, cancer, heart disease, viral outbreaks, a host of chronic conditions — our hospitals and doctors’ offices are flooded with patients.

Menu Monday – 24 OCT 11 – Daniel Fast Week 3

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of October 24th. I have some pumpkin leftover from my Winter Squash Stuffed with Wild Rice, Dried Cherries, and Roasted Pecans (the recipe will go up this week), and the boys are begging me to make pumpkin cookies.

Our church is currently observing 40 days of fasting, and Gregg and I decided that we would do a Daniel Fast. For the next few weeks, you will see a “vegan extreme” diet. We are consuming only fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and drinking only water – no sugars, honey, syrups, nor eating leavened bread. Kaylee is observing her own form of this fast and will be abstaining from the sugars and the meat – she will be consuming dairy, however. The boys will be eating our meals with us, but will have some meat and will have dairy.

Menu Monday 09 MAY 2011

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of May 9th. I’m keeping the menu simple this week, because I have a lot of work to do in the garden. As far as desserts go, Kaylee is fasting from sugar this week, so I’m going to just have some fresh berries and (unsweetened) whipped cream to eat as a dessert, and I’m not going to make anything here that would tempt her.

What are Antioxidants?

In beginning this regimen, I’ve done quite a bit of research into supplements, vitamins, etc. And a word that I’ve come across several times is the word “antioxidants.” Things that contain antioxidants are apparently good for you. But, why? You may already know this. But since I didn’t and had to learn about it, I thought I’d share with you my newfound knowledge. :-)

Breaking the word down, we get “anti”, which means against, and oxidants. An oxidant is very specifically defined as a chemical agent that oxidizes. Yeah? So?

Natural Health: Cinnamon

For millenia, human beings have sought methods for healing and health holistically. It is only in the last century or so that we’ve really sought out lab-produced medicines. As wonderful and life-saving as prescription medication can be, in our focus on pharmaceuticals, we’ve lost a lot of knowledge about God provided health and healing properties that grow naturally.
