Gluten free Hawaii on Pride of America Part 1


  When I first booked this cruise back in January, I had no idea where it would lead as far as food.  I wanted to post my experience so far. If you are considering taking a cruise with Norwegian, my review and overview might help you to decide whether you would feel safe and comfortable…

Hawaiian cruise


  I was hoping to blog live from the ship but between limited wifi and a really busy schedule it’s just not possible.  Stay tuned for more posts starting next week! After a really exhausting double flight we arrived in Honolulu about 2:30 yesterday.  We had to wait for a cab to the airport- $50…

Is your probiotic making you sick?


I started a course of antibiotics last week for a gum infection.  We all know the consequences of antibiotics-stomach upset and for us ladies, yeast infections.  I started reading up on probiotics in conjunction with antibiotic usage and decided to try to take something to ward off the usual nasty side effects. I started with acidophilus….

Three days til Hawaii!!


  Only three more days until Paradise!  I started planning this cruise in January, so it’s been a long time coming.  Nothing left to do but the packing. As I stated in previous posts, I am hoping to blog live from the ship/airport, and I will be taking lots of pictures, not only of the…

That California cow may not be as happy as you think.  We have been told that milk does a…

Sailing soon aboard the Pride of America


  My apologies for not posting for the last several days. I spent yesterday in the ER with a pounding headache from the epidural I got on Friday. They could not do much for me.  I wasn’t going to get the injection, but did so anyway, and now regret it.   I have an appointment…

Four lies your scale is telling you


We are a country obsessed with weight.  Either we are obsessed with our scales, or being a certain “normal” size.   Weight loss products are a multi-billion dollar business.  But I am here to tell you that you needn’t be a slave to your scale, because it is lying to you. In this article from…

Another dairy free milk hits the market


  I recently came across an article on a new diary free milk that claims to taste just like the real thing.  It is not a nut, soy or coconut milk, but a synthetic milk made from yeast. Perfect Day Milk, the company behind the claim, uses a strain of yeast they call Buttercup: So they…
