Local Love: Fatty Daddy's

Our Legacy doesn't date back 50 years, we didn't have a grand business plan, and we actually didn't even know how to make ice cream. While working together at the tech giant we decided we wanted to open a business together. We had so many ideas but we kept coming back to delicious gourmet ice cream. Why ice cream, you might ask? Well, what other thing makes you smile by just uttering those magic words, "ICE CREAM." So we partnered with a local creamery to learn, and work hand in hand with them to create our signature flavors. 

Once we had our flavors pretty much worked out, we scouted the area for a place set up shop and call home. We decided on a neighborhood location, somewhere that we would become a part of the community and even be able to give back. We look forward to making you feel like part of the Fatty Daddy's family as well, so stop in and enjoy some amazing ice cream or even one of our delicious (Almost Famous) Fatty Daddy's Cookie Cup.

Vitamin D

A new small study finds that vitamin D supplementation increased healthy gut bacteria & boosted cancer-killing immune cells in the gut.

--Cancer Killing Cd8 cells were increased 

--Vitamin D3 increases the growth gut microbiome which an protect against many diseases are linked to the gut (cancer, diabetes, heart disease, infections)

--It is important to point out that the vitamin D doses were high during this eight-week trial: 140 IU/kg bodyweight daily for the first 4 weeks and 70IU/kg daily for the last 4 weeks. 

--we have always known that cancer has a "map" where the equator "sunny" countries with more vit d have less cancer. Please read website for more details:

--We also have studies that suggest calcitriol (the hormonally active form of vitamin D) can reduce cancer progression by slowing the growth and development of new blood vessels in cancerous tissue, increasing cancer cell death and by reducing cell proliferation 

--Vitamin D is a hormone that influences over 200 genes that cause cancer, heart disease, and diabetes

Purse Must Have w/Fawn Cheng

You can tell a lot about a woman, by what's in her handbag it's kind of like her alter ego, or best friend. 
Here are the top items to keep in your bag to ensure you're prepared in every situation: 
Keep these rules of thumb in mind:

  • Look pretty
  • Makeup items (liner, balm, gloss, color, powder)
  • Toothpick or white strips
  • Smell good
  • Fragrance
  • Gum
  • Play it safe
  • Sunscreen
  • Wipes or sanitizer
  • Eye glass case
  • Be a creature of comfort
  • Book 
  • Ear buds
  • Healthy snack

Something to consider is what many wives/moms tell me: their handbag is an "our" handbag, meaning it becomes a satchel for hubby and kids too.
