Mayor Cory Booker: My Organic Food Stamp Challenge

When I heard about Newark Mayor Cory Booker's (now Senator) one week Food Stamp Challenge on the Sunday Morning Show, I was intrigued.  As a bone health and nutrition coach, I wondered whether you could not just survive but eat well on food stamps.

Your Bones: Why Eating the Whole Food Matters

By guest blogger: Margie King, Nourishing Menopause What makes an apple good for us? Is it the Vitamin C? Vitamin K or B6?  Is it the soluble fiber or the insoluble fiber?

Shocking GMOs study will chill you to the bone!

Calcium for strong bones: are supplements better than food?

  One question I often hear from my clients is “How much calcium do I need to take every day for my bones?” The hidden assumption in that question is this:  “you have to take a supplement to get enough calcium for your bones.”  That seems to be the philosophy of most consumers and healthcare […]

Strong Bones and Milk: Relax! Light up a cigarette and have a tall glass of milk.

“Sit back and light up a cigarette – it does a body good.” As shocking as that sounds today, there was a time when it was widely accepted. My early memories are filled with smokers.  In the 50’s my parents would light a cigarette whenever they wanted to relax:  during and after family meals, cocktail […]
