Sprinkling chopped walnuts on top before baking gives more of crunch and magnifies the ta...Read Full Post »

Some Americans believe that if we eat fish and vegetables, and guzzle down wine and olive oil, we will live forever -- or at least longer than our American-diet-eating counterparts. Nothing could be further from the truth.
In the early 1960s, researchers realized that Cretans (the people living in Crete, an island in the eastern Mediterranean Sea) live...Read Full Post »

The tens of trillions of bacteria that live in your digestive tract, also known as your microbiota or gut bacteria, can make it or break it for you as far as your health is concerned. The microbiota (pronounced mi-kro-bi-O-ta) does many things, including combating disease-producing bacteria, making vitamins B and K (essential for making energy and blood clotting, respectively), and digesting food substances that...Read Full Post »

Makes 2 servings
- 1 cup oat milk
- 1/4 cup cashew or almond butter
- 3 tablespo...

Blood sugar numbers are high when sugar piles up outside the cells and can’t get inside.
In a person who does not have diabetes, the sugar moves into the cells through glucose doors. Once the sugar gets into the cell, it bounces around a bit before it can be used to make energy.
In Type 2 diabetes though, the sugar can’t move into to cell because there’s no room...Read Full Post »
