by Leisa on December 15, 2010

by Leisa on April 18, 2010

I admire perfectionism, I have a healthy dose of this trait myself – but it is when perfectionist tendencies turn rigid that they become a problem – both for the person with the stratospheric expectations, and for those around them.

A Cowboy Goes Vegan

by Leisa on October 19, 2009

This was a great challenge and it is quite amazing that this sort of concept is being promoted on mainstream television!  Now, I don’t agree with everything in Dr. Oz’s approach here – having processed soy vegan food is just as bad as eating processed junk food – but at least it is a big

by Leisa on August 15, 2009

Just recently someone very close to me was diagnosed with heart disease and told very strongly that they were on the path to either a heart attack or bypass surgery in the next few years.
