Blogpost: We, Must Make the Connection

The New York Senate Passes a Bill S1471 that would require hospitals to offer plant-based options for their patients IF signed. Should we really need legislatures telling hospitals and doctors that nutrition is a vital part of healthcare and needs to be taken as seriously as pills and procedures? I guess so. I am a […]

Blogpost: Let’s Talk about Breakfast

Nothing is without confusion. Should we eat breakfast? Should we wait until we are hungry? What about kids? Should they eat breakfast? I am a morning person. I didn’t use to be a breakfast person.

Most people blame the lack of exercise for weight gain. If only they had more time or discipline to exercise their weight would be better.

Blogpost: You are Not the only One.

A table of 4 sits across from me at a local restaurant. They are all overweight. Their heads are too heavy for their necks to support. There is a marked curvature of their upper backs with their heads coming off 45 degrees to their bodies. It is an effort for them to get up from […]

Blogpost: The Hunt

My uncles used to ask my father if he caught anything when he came back in from hunting. He would reply he did not “catch” but he killed a squirrel or a deer. That violent act of killing happens each time before someone consumes meat. Most people only picture the act of shooting in the […]
