Why Hair Goes Gray

I often wondered why the hair starts turning gray very early in life for some people, and yet for others, myself included, there are only few gray hairs here and there, at this later stage in our lives.

So, when I found this article with some scientific explanations, I wanted to share it with all of you, so you also stop wondering and blaming other factors for turning your hair gray.

I am not a scientist or a doctor, so I really can’t comment here, but I bet my Pharm D. children, and MD friends, might chime in with their opinion, which is sincerely encouraged and welcome.

The Importance of Walking – Part I – Humor

What’s all this talk about daily routines, exercise, working out, walking. Well, all these are great things for staying fit and healthy, but how about some good humor to add to that routine.

Top Diet Myths

Not everyone loves potatoes, but who doesn’t love bread?????? How can anyone resist the aroma of a fresh baking bread……hmmm…yuuummmm………I’m sure not many of you! I love them both, with or without butter. My theory is that everything is good for you, in moderation, and in addition to some type of regular exercise (walking is my favorite).

After I read this article I decided to copy and paste it into my post to share with all of you, my wonderful readers.

Sorrel Leaves – My Organic Garden

Fresh sorrel could be a little challenging to find in a local grocery store, so the best place to look for it is in a specialty food stores, or to grow your own. I had a difficult time to even find seeds, until I inquired about it in our local gardening/farming store. They did not have it in stock, but were familiar with this herb, so I was very pleased to be able to order it.

Let me introduce you to this vegetable/herb, if you never had a chance to experience its taste or appearance.

Pecan Chocolate Cake – Atkins Diet

Dieting is not an easy task to keep up with, but worse yet, what do you do about celebrating a Birthday, and you need a special cake for the occasion. How about a cake for someone on Atkins Diet (high fat and extremely low carbs), which means no sugar and no flour……a couple of main ingredients you always use in making cakes!

Google.com to the rescue!! I found a real nice recipe for a Sugar Free Pecan Chocolate Cake, but I was quite skeptical about the outcome of this project….cake without flour or real sugar…only sugar substitutes….??? Would it taste like chocolate flavored cardboard??? Would it be very dense? Would it be very flat???
