Hormones- You Big Jerks!
  HORMONES.  They can be our worst enemy or our best friend.  They can leave you feeling like the world is ending via an internal Chernobyl meltdown or like you invented, built and own the place!   I am not gonna do what everyone thinks I’m gonna do and FLIP OUT MAAN!   The purpose ...

At least they are TRYING
          It is now that time of  year.  Resolutioners at the gym hoping to make some changes this year.  I am amazed at how they attempt to use some of the machines.  They even have pictures on them but still somehow they end up looking like the lady in this photo. ...

Grains... The Atomic Gut Bomb!
Post Holiday bloat.  Chelsea Handler made a pretty good joke about it last night.  I generally don’t find her particularly funny but she nailed this one.  She said something along the lines of us all being too fat and bloated post holiday to want to have sex, in less PG related terms.   There are ...

Tonight we dine with a new favorite of mine, Bison.  Bison Ribeye so far has been my favorite cut.  When I can I do choose to purchase organic, grass fed beef.  If I can get Bison instead, even better.  Bison is a tremendous source of protein and it is delicious!!  This article breaks down comparing ...
