Five Pound Bagel

Do You Know a Bagel Weighs Five Pounds?

Blog #4 – Do You Know a Bagel Weighs Five pounds? Greetings Cool Healthy Lifers!

It’s All About The Journey For me, the starting point was all about freeing myself from everything I Read More

Living Healthy made to look easy

It’s Easy to Live Healthy, Right?

Wanted. Soothsayer who can read fortunes and decipher quantum physics. Oh, and I want them to tell me how to “live healthy.” Living healthy should be easy, right?  Don’t do drugs … Don’t have fast food more than once a week … Make sure you walk a few miles with the dog every few days … and “you’re healthy.”  But we all know that things don’t work that way.  Life is complicated and unfortunately, so is our health.  Today “we’re healthier than we’ve ever been,” yet as a country we’re obese, chronically ill and always sick.
