Energy Drinks: The Down Side

August 4, 2014 by


I have been working with the employees of RBM Lumber alongside Sheri Lynn for over a year now, ministering a Genesis-based health and safety program. I absolutely love working there. I have seen vast improvement in the guys’ mobility, flexibility, and overall fitness. AWESOME! Recently, however, Sheri  and I noticed some fundamental differences between the […]

November 3, 2013 by


New research suggests that sugary, fatty treats can elicit the same reaction and activate the brain in a similar manner as cocaine and morphine in lab rats.  In fact, in this study, the brain chemistry in the rats were higher in the ‘pleasure center’ after eating an Oreo versus being injected with either morphine or […]

March 30, 2013 by


Many ‘natural’ food stores attend some type of trade show to find new products to put on the shelves.  I recently attended EXPO WEST – a trade show of monstrous proportions located in Anaheim, California geared towards the ‘NATURAL FOOD INDUSTRY’.  The show is nothing short of overwhelming; people pushing food in your face, crowds […]

Independence from Social Eating Norms

July 8, 2012 by


Recently I was responsible for bringing ‘treats’ for my son’s soccer team after a game.  Several mother’s advised me to buy concession stand coupons (meaning soda and candy) like most mothers did because it was easy and the kids liked it.  I answered, “Hmm, I was thinking of something healthier after the kids play so […]

High Protein Diet Harmful?

Starting Out

March 3, 2012 by


We have all been there; learning something new can be challenging to say the least.    For some, the learning curve is short and sweet, for others, it can be a struggle for what seems like an eternity.   I remember when I first fell in love with horses and riding.  So many things to keep track […]

January 13, 2012 by


Processed and refined foods are processed and refined foods – and can’t be trusted for your health.  No matter WHAT the claim is on the label, if you’re not familiar with the FDA standards for what that claim means, you may be in trouble. ‘Gluten Free’ claims are a HUGE market in the USA.  Even […]

For Fun… Science vs God

October 5, 2011 by


There was a group of scientists, and they were all sitting around discussing which one of them was going to go to God and tell Him that they didn't need Him anymore. Finally, one of the scientists volunteered and went to go tell God He was no longer needed. So the scientist says to God, […]

Coach Peggi Ingram, RN I know you have experienced days and sometimes weeks or even months when you are just too darn busy to pee let alone think or plan!  As Sheri says, we get very caught up in the do- ing and forget about the be-ing.  As a previous emergency room nurse, I have […]
