Taste The Titanium Dioxide?

The tagline of the popular candy Skittles is “Taste the rainbow.” Now it may be more appropriate to say “Taste the titanium dioxide.” And this does not make for good publicity.

Stop Fiddling Around With Your Diet and Try Fiddlehead Ferns!

To be honest, I was shocked to see them at first because they looked like little green snakes on a plate!

Why I’m Making Watermelon Rind Pickles This Summer, And You Should Too!

Watermelon season is upon us. I cannot think of a more refreshing and satisfying summer treat. On a hot day, there’s nothing better than biting into the juicy flesh of a cool, fresh piece of watermelon. Like most people, I chuck the rinds into the trash.

If You’re Trying To Eat Healthier – Let Your Smart Speaker Help!

We probably have all witnessed friends and family asking an invisible “Alexa,” “Siri,” “Bixby” or “Google” to play some music or tell them the weather and wondering who in the world they were talking to. They were, of course, talking with their “smart speakers,” one of the latest and more popular technology accessories for the home. In addition to playing music (which is what I had originally thought they were limited to), they also can provide access to a wealth of information as well as control other “smart” devices in your home.

Think Prunes Have Only One Health Benefit? Think Again!

When you think of the health benefits of prunes, one thing – and probably only one thing – comes to mind. This is not surprising since eating prunes is probably one of the best things you can do to keep yourself regular or address an occasional bout of constipation.

To give you some background, prunes date back to ancient western Asia. They eventually spread to Europe and then made their way to the U.S. in the middle of the 19th century. Today, we consume almost a third of a pound of prunes per person, second only to dried dates.
