Fairlife milk is the newest brand of milk to hit our local grocery store shelves, and I think it shows some promise. Here’s why: it’s lactose free and one cup of Fairlife milk packs a whopping 13 grams of protein and has only has 6 grams of carbohydrate. How’s that possible you ask? Ultrafiltration.
Ultrafiltration is a pro [...]
It took me a while to develop a healthy appreciation for thrift stores, but now that I have, I’m hard-pressed not to step inside of one when something catches my eye. Typically, I’m looking for fun new dishes to use on the blog or cool furniture that can be refurbished and put to good use. Alas, it was unadulterated nosiness that [...]

Please note that, although this website offers diet tips in addition to recipes, we caution you to always consult your doctor [...]

(BTW, I do and a recipe is soooo on it’s way). It costs about $25 ($20 if you’ve got one of thsoe ubiquitous bl [...]
Hey there! We’ve been gone a while, and we’ve missed you!
What was originally only going to be a 2 week hiatus turned into 3 months (!!!) thanks to post-surgery recovery needs, the holidays, and a few back-to-back snowstorms that have hit the Northeast.
Although we’re still not quite back in the saddle, we’re close en [...]
