Nobody ever changes a strongly held opinion because of a single study. It’s too easy to find potential flaws in any given set of results: they tested the wrong people, or used the wrong protocol, or simply got a fluke result. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. You shouldn’t discard all your previous opinions every time you read a new study.

Why Aren’t We Promoting Health to Combat COVID?

It’s an unfortunate fact that health officials and pandemic response authorities, by and large, are completely ignoring the role a healthy lifestyle plays in the COVID-19 pandemic, focusing instead, almost exclusively, on the necessity for a vaccine.

According to Reuters,1 the U.S. government is planning to launch an “overwhelming” COVID-19 vaccine campaign come November. An unnamed “senior White House administration official” is quoted saying:2

“The fine line we are walking is getting the American people very excited about vaccines and missing expectations versus having a bunch of vaccines in the warehouse and not as many people want to get it. You may not hear a lot about promoting vaccines over the airwaves in August and September but you’ll be overwhelmed by it come November.” read more

My Low Carb Frozen Yogurt 😋 + Lolli’s Sale!

Did you know you can mix low carb yogurt with almond butter, macadamia nut butter or even peanut butter 🥜🍯 and it makes yogurt SUPER CREAMY and absolutely delicious?!

I discovered this because I don’t actually LIKE yogurt, but my doctor recommended I eat it more regularly after dealing with gut health issues last year – and mixing almond butter in with it did the trick for me. 🥰

I started out getting all fancy with it, layering it up into a pretty parfait (picture below), but the truth is: I just stirred that all together after the picture was taken – – and THAT is how I discovered “frozen yogurt” was my favorite way to eat this. read more
