I don't remember it, but I have been told that my first non-baby food snack was a french fry. I am now 75 years old and I ain't dead yet! I am convinced that one day some "scientist" is going to come out with a study that states oxygen is deadly!

Menopause has been barely a blip on my health radar-thankfully.

At 60, I'm still waiting for the hot flashes to attack.  After testing my estrogen levels,  my doctor suggested that I may not have the same experiences that other women in my family are going through.  Whew...I hope that proves to be true.

 

 


@Calhounwoman Oh do let us know how that goes! I'm 58 and out of menopause already, and I didn't use flaxseed meal --though I would have had I known it would reduce hot flashes. Instead I made motherwort tincture. That stopped heart palpitations and hot flashes in seconds.

 

 

 

DH used flaxseed more than me: he adds it to everything.

Eating Healthy Everyday!!

Hello My Community and Happy Spring!

 

It is wonderful to be progressing with my Posterial Laminectomy Surgery.  It has 

been a "difficult " time for me .  I start each morning being grateful because it's

difficult getting into a good sleeping position.  These 9 mos. have been painful , but I keep moving forward to complete Wellness.

I have been trying to eat healthy too.  I saw the Air Fryer on TV and some of you

might already have one. For me it was fantastic!! I cooked my first meat and did not believe that 1 table spoon of oil could fry several pieces of chicken. The chicken was so brown and crispy. So, finally I bought a good useful item. I also ordered the Air Fryer cook book that was a good price also. Amazon Prime did get it delivered in 2 days.  

Looking forward to cooking more foods from the Cook Book.  Hope with less oil

that I can also lose a few lbs. That was one of my goals too.  Perhaps try a few

deserts since Spring and Summer have lots ofreal fresh fruits ( the early fruits doesn't have a taste or smell to me ).

So, I am happy for the wonderful weather and looking to more progress with my

Recovery.

 

Happy Spring to each of you as we enjoy the Newness of each day!!!

 

  ENJOY !!!!
