Watermelon and Pancreas Health

As watermelon was the main character of my most recent film clip (shown above), I felt I should take some time to write about it. Honestly, at first I thought there was not too much to say. When I researched the nutrition, it didn’t appear to be a “super food” of any kind. But, that […]

Quicky Chicky (a vegan recipe) (pancreatitis recipe)

I’m ashamed to say that I did not make it to the store last week to pick up fresh veggies. By Friday, any fresh items that I had were just not so fresh anymore. So when lunch time came, I had to go…canned. Honestly, that’s not such a bad thing…in moderation, since many cans do […]

This was not a planned juice. My pancreas is acting up and I need some […]

Misto Popcorn

In an effort to get healthy and have a lower fat intake, I have eaten soy lecithin, dimethyl silicone, and propellant. Yes, I said propellant.
