The Flu Shot – My Common Sense Approach

It’s January and influenza (flu) virus is knocking people down like flies. I see post after post on social media, again, on the pros and cons of the flu vaccine.

My Recipe For a Low-Carb Breakfast Bake

Let’s see, if you’re like me, you probably love weekend breakfast cooking, bacon, and cast iron. Am I right? How about low carb?

Several years ago I lost 70 pounds on a low-carb diet. Wow did I feel great! Forward three years later (today) and I’ve “found” 45 of those pounds I lost.

Now I’m on a mission to take that fat off and keep it off. I know low-carb works and the book, “Living Low Carb: Controlled-Carbohydrate Eating for Long-Term Weight Loss” by Jonny Bowden is where I’m starting my research. This post is my honest opinion, and review, of the book – not low carb dieting in general.
