My husband started a new job last July, dream job with a company he has admired and followed for years. Exciting stuff. Unfortunately, dream job is in California and we were living in Chicago with a soon to be senior in high school. Last year was a bit crazy. I was in Chicago with my […]
I am deep into my endocrine intensive class. I have about 3 weeks left and then I’ll start my next class. I LOVE this class. I LOVE hormones and all that they do. The hot mess that the body becomes due to hormone imbalance is beyond fascinating.

Back in February I was contacted by a company in Lake Forest Illinois called Vital Proteins. They saw my post back in August about collagen hydrolysate and wanted to introduce me to their product line. They have a collagen peptides product and a collagen protein product.

I read an article by Dr. Mercola the other day about the dangers of Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics. It was scary. Scary enough that I shot the article around to family members to see if anyone was taking the antibiotics mentioned in the article. Turns out that two family members had recently had prescriptions of Ciprofloxacin (Cipro), […]
Here is my new favorite thing. Collagen Hydrolysate (Green Can) from Great Lakes Gelatin.
I have known about the collagen benefits of bone broth for a long time. I have also been trying to make my own bone broth for a long time. I do make it but not often so I never have […]
It’s been a crazy summer so far and I expect it will continue in a crazy manner until my son goes back to school August 26th. I think about writing something here almost everyday and then never get to it. I miss it. I’m looking forward to getting back on a schedule.
