New Years is a time to reflect on the previous year and to wipe the slate clean for the new one. New Year Resolutions are an ancient practice dating back nearly 4000 years. Both ancient Babylonian and Roman cultures used the new year to reaffirm their religious faith. The expectation was that in being better people, [...]

Why I’m So Thankful for This Ugly, Old Sweatshirt

November 22nd, 2018|Categories: Blog, Community, Features, People, Women Health Wellness|Tags: |

By Melanie Eberhardt I still don’t know why she gave me this sweatshirt. I’d seen her wear it a number of times but don’t recall ever making a comment about it. We had spent the afternoon in front of her wood burning stove watching old black and white movies and sipping hot tea with honey. It [...]

Broccoli Silk Soup to Chase Away the Cold Weather Chills

November 20th, 2018|Categories: Community, Women Health Wellness|Tags: , , , |

I’m so happy we’re officially in Soup Season. Don’t you love soup? And its heartier bro, stew? I got this recipe a few months ago from a friend. Then I promptly lost the little post-it note I wrote it down on, but that’s OK because it’s so simple to make and with just four ingredients really [...]

From the time she was 11, Angela Wood dreamed of riding a horse across America. Over the next few decades, life offered its distractions but the dream was always in the back of her mind. A few weeks ago, Angela’s dream finally came true. At age 50, Angela set out on a 2-year nationwide trek, driving [...]

When Broccoli Met Bacon

August 30th, 2018|Categories: Community, Women Health Wellness|Tags: , , , |

It’s still so darn hot out, but after a long day’s work I often want something really savory and delicious. But not bad for me. Or just a little bad for me. If I’ve thought ahead, I’ve made the incredibly easy dressing in the morning so it can blend. Then when I get home from work [...]

Lil Wheat-Free, Lower-Carb Maple Doughnuts

August 7th, 2018|Categories: Women Health Wellness|Tags: , , , |

For me, the hardest thing about eating lower carb is the lack of delicious bread. I grew up eating my mom’s fresh-baked bread right out of the oven, so hot the slices were messy and uneven and butter melted into it immediately. Nutty-tasting sesame seeds on the crust and pillowy softness inside. I ate a lot [...]

Salad’s Bestest Buddy

June 25th, 2018|Categories: Women Health Wellness|Tags: , , , |

Greens are so healthy, we should be eating them at every meal. Well, no. But if you’re like me and eat a lot of salad, you don’t want to ruin a perfectly good greens habit with boredom. Just like an ice cream sundae, it’s all about the toppings, all the crunchy, tasty bits that bring the [...]

My Side of the Mountain

June 1st, 2018|Categories: Women Health Wellness|Tags: , , , , |

I love a good salad, always have. I wonder how huge of a mountain my lifetime of salads would make. Or at least I did love salad. But then along came the romaine scare, and then finding out that canola oil messes up your omega 3/omega 6 balance (and canola is in every salad dressing). So [...]

Asparagus, You Look Great. Have You Been Working Out?

April 23rd, 2018|Categories: Women Health Wellness|Tags: , , , |

Remember when you couldn’t get brussels sprouts everywhere? Back in the olden days, when they might appear in a cafeteria, probably hospital, boiled or smothered with cheese sauce as a tip of the hat that they tasted awful. Then not too long ago, brussels made the acquaintance of the deep fryer and the Granny Smith apple [...]

My Friend Fennel

March 21st, 2018|Categories: Women Health Wellness|Tags: , , , |

For a long time I wanted to buy fresh fennel at the store because it looked so nice and smelled so good. But heck, I didn’t know what to do with it. Then one day awhile back I was gazing dumbly at a beautiful, haphazard fennel pile at the farmer’s market and my mouth started watering [...]
