The Opposite Diet

After that Sunday pie post, I knew redemption was in order with a post highlighting a healthy food that is the antithesis of Coconut Cream Pie.  What is the most commonly reviled food for most human beings of any age? Brussels Sprouts! Actually, I’ve been meaning to make Brussel Sprouts since reading a post about… Continue reading The Opposite Diet

Eating the Finest Piece of Pie in the Midwest

Took a favorite local road trip along the Minnesota/Wisconsin border to the south with my brother yesterday. It’s a really cool drive because you follow the river, and go through a lot of old river and railroad towns that haven’t changed much in over 100 years. We followed the Minnesota side of the river until… Continue reading Eating the Finest Piece of Pie in the Midwest

Eat Clean Challenge #4

The article was going through some of his amazing career highlights and statistics, and they had a lot of fun, fascinating… Continue reading 1,000 Squats Every Day (For 38 years)

Plant a Knowledge Seed in Someone

I can’t remember the first time a knowledge seed was planted within, but there is a favorite memory of being in Mrs. Roofe’s 2nd grade grade class and being a surprise winner of a book reading contest, which really boosted the learning self esteem, and greatly enhanced a love of reading. For the contest, the… Continue reading Plant a Knowledge Seed in Someone
