Today’s Healthy Dose – Healthy Bees, Healthy Food

Honey bees are responsible for 80% of all pollination, and they ensure we get to enjoy some of our most nutritious foods.  But they are just as afraid of us, as we are of them, so don’t swat, give them something to do instead. Long season or year round flowering plants that are native to your region will keep them hard at work and healthy too.

Time to plant some flowers?


Today’s Healthy Dose – Poor Poultry

Many chickens are crowded together, sitting in their own feces, spreading salmonella and other diseases, feeding on antibiotic and pesticide laced genetically modified corn and soy, depleted of essential vitamins and minerals, with no outdoor access, and no light. Then they’re injected with a yummy salt and preservative cocktail to “boost” flavor during processing.

Remember the saying you are what you eat?  When it comes to chicken, buy organic.
