Weekend Conversation Starter

I’ve been watching The Crown season 5 on Netflix, one episode a night. The sad truth is, midway through an episode, I fall asleep or zone out. And my partner in crime turns off the television, disappointed that I am not keeping up. I don’t know about you, but for some strange reason season 5 has been a bit difficult for me to watch for so many reasons. Are you having the same issues? If so please tell me why?

healthy cooking to healthy choices to healthy you

Funny, how in the 50’s and 60’s all the way to about early 2013-2014, it was all about canned goods, frozen packaged foods, and boxed goodies here in the U.S. (I can’t really speak for the rest of the world). Although disappointingly, I found the same sort of push in most of Europe, tapping heavy into working couples who have no time to make anything from scratch. Now we have nothing but information, about what to eat and what to avoid. Sometimes too much information confusing us into making bad choices, or even the choices once reported as good choices, we learn on Facebook and Twitter to being suddenly bad choices. (Are you confused? Good, that’s the point. Anyway, we can’t be sure of anything. But my motto is-if you are not sure, go the moderation route. If you are somewhat sure, then click on each photo to learn about the best choices. {Click here to get there – Heidi Swanson} From Amazon:  San Francisco-based photographer and cookbook author Heidi Swanson is the creator of …
