Cashews growing on the tree

Who knew the bone-loving qualities of cashews?

From Dr. Mercola:

“Cashews are the number one crop in the world (after almonds), cultivated in more than 30 countries. They require a hot, humid climate to proliferate, which is why India, Brazil, Mozambique, Tanzania, and Nigeria are the largest raw cashew producers. (more…)

Spice Up Your Bones

By: | Posted in: Blog, Featured | Friday, Jul 6, 2018 - 4:43pm

Last week Skelly and I did a little dejunking in the kitchen. We went through all of those dusty, old spice jars hiding here and there in the cabinets. They must have been there for years!

YOU know what I’m talking about.

We started fresh with a brand new wooden spice rack that we keep on the counter.

I love it! And it speaks to my need to be organized. (more…)

Raspberries

My bones (Skelly) love berries  because that means summer.  Do you adore the summer as I do?    Spending time with friends at the beach and getting lots of bone-building sunshine.  And eating plenty of brilliant fresh summer berries.

Even though berries are tiny, they pack a powerful punch when it comes to your bones.  Their beautiful reds, blues, blacks, and purples tell you that they are full of natural antioxidants.  Yet they have such a short shelf-life.

There is a trick keeping your berries mold free.

Can Pomegranates Reverse Bone Loss?

My Skelly really likes summer fruits like blueberries and watermelon. But come winter there’s a fruit she loves even more. I’m talking about pomegranates. These are one of the oldest known fruits in the world. In ancient Egypt they were buried in the tombs of royalty.

And I love pomegranates for what they do for my Skelly…

The Essential Thryroid Cookbook

Did you know your thyroid can make or break your bones?

Chances are you know someone with an underactive thyroid. Maybe it’s you…

I’m not surprised. Hypothyroidism has become an epidemic. It’s estimated to occur in up to 6.5 percent of people. It’s twice as likely to hit you if you’re a woman and three times more likely if you’re white.[i]

Build Healthy Bones While You Sleep

Bones need sleep

At the end of a long day I am bone tired. But when my head hits the pillow, my Skelly still has lots of work to do. Here’s what I mean…

Your bones have a daily cycle just like the rest of your body.

They are built up by special cells called osteoblasts that work mostly during the daytime. But come nighttime your bones are broken down by other cells called osteoclasts. They clear out old cells and make way for the new osteoblasts that come during the day.

Top 4 Bone-Building Supplements

By: | Posted in: Blog, Featured | Tuesday, Aug 22, 2017 - 8:56pm

When it comes to bones, I’m all about feeding my Skelly bone-building foods.

It’s always the first step in my bone health program.

You see, you can’t just pop a pill and keep poisoning your bones with bad food. But I do think that supplements can play an important role in boosting the nutrients that your bones need.

Maybe you don’t digest your food very well so you aren’t getting the nutrients your bones need. Or maybe you’re trying to eat right, but you’re not hitting your goals at every meal. I get that…

Now, I’m no expert on supplements. But I thought I’d share with you today the four supplements that I take to make sure my bones are getting the most important vitamins and minerals they need.

And before I get started, I’ll mention the one “bone” supplement that I DON’T take.
