A urine test for diabetes-related cognitive decline?

What I Ate Wednesday: Moving Edition

Happy Wednesday!We are moving to California in 3 days and so our place is a disaster! Everything is pretty much packed at this point, so everything I ate on Tuesday had to be something easy to make that didn’t require any dishware. I’ve packed the entire kitchen, except for some tupperware, one fork (so I can still eat) and one glass. I am just going to throw out the tupperware, fork and glass when we leave....more

Doing the Little Extras

 In case you hadn't noticed, I spend a good bit of my time working out. It's obviously not all I do...I also teach, host/co-lead a Bible study, take courses for my Masters, study God's Word, maintain a healthy happy marriage, and all the other every day things we all do.

However, lately I feel like I've been making some cuts in my triathlon training that are not necessary and that I am not happy about......more

Our First Tasting Event...

Our first tasting event is over. We put a lot of love into our recipes and concepts and it was so wonderful to get outside perspectives and feedback on everything. Overall we gathered valuable feedback. Of course some items need to be tweaked, you know, loved a little more and held a little tighter before they are 'done'. We welcome the opportunity to continue working on our creations.  We were delighted to hear from friends who are in the food industry or are 'foodies' and want to help us out.  What an amazing way to spend time with friends.  We look forward to the future....more

Choline intake improves memory and attention in rats (and maybe humans)

So far it's only been tested on rats, but they're actually very similar to humans in many ways (which is why they use them so much). Choline (a vitamin B group nutrient found in things like soy, wheat germ, eggs and beef liver) helps improve attention-holding capacity and long-term memory.In the study, rats were given choline supplements during pregnancy, then their offspring were studied once they became adults.Rats that had the choline supplements in utero did better on memory and attention tests.Rats that had a regular diet in utero did ok, but not as well....more
