fish oils for inflamation

Why Fish oils?

I have some great videos to answer that question for you, a few to get your understanding going....but don't just take Dr. Sears' word for it. I have also included some additional links at the bottom for more information on why...there is overwhelming information online - just look

If you will only take 1 supplement, than it should be quality DHA/ EPA fish oils

Dr. Sears discusses fish oils (7 minutes) - yes I know it doesn't show you all the graphics...
Home test for quality of your fish oils (4 minutes)
New fish oils?

Spaghetti Squash

Nicole was over and asked about one of my favorite little squashes the...

Spaghetti Squash

I love this little gem, Spaghetti squash contains many nutrients, including folic acid, potassium, vitamin A, and beta carotene. It is low in calories, averaging 42 calories per 1-cup...and what's more...
it's tasty! It has a little bite to it and a soft sweetness. I like it way more than regular pasta. So I scoured the net a found a simple video to help you cook one for your family.

If you don't want to hit the oven, you can actually cook this baby in the microwave. Stab it a few times with a knife and cook on high heat for about 4-5 min per pound.

(yes you could still cut in half and clean it out first, but it takes longer to cook in the microwave this way)

This is great with ANY of your favorite sauces or for a tradiotnal approach make some Meatballs and Sweet Pepper Sauce. Yum!
