There’s something about raw milk. For many of us, it was the first step in the real food journey. It tastes weird at first, like drinking ice cream. Then you grow to love it — especially the kids, then depend on it. Then it’s at every meal. And...

Splenda

A client was asking about Splenda recently and I pulled a bit from my soon-to-be-released book “Sally Oh’s Weight Loss and Health Detective Handbook” (April 2016). The bottom line for me is that there’s enough controversy about Splenda that I...
