Best Vegan Multivitamins – Plant Based Supplements That Actually Work

by Matt
With the rise in popularity of veganism and plant-based living in general, we’ve seen an increase in effective vegan supplements over the past few years, especially multivitamins. For those of you wondering, the big difference between a vegan multivitamin and an ordinary one is that typically, the vegan varieties derive their vitamins and minerals from plant-based, natural sources. This means that not only are they OK for vegans to eat as they contain no animal products, they are also extremely healthy, as all of their nutrient content comes from actual plants rather than synthetic chemicals in a lab. It should […]

What You Need to Know About the Paleo Diet and Why It’s Just Another Fad

by Matt
There’s something about the Paleo Diet that has the health and wellness world buzzing. Maybe because it’s supposedly a “return to our natural diet,” maybe because it’s helping people lose weight, or maybe because it’s simply the rage.

One thing should be noted that we advocate healthy living at all costs, even in baby steps. While there are plenty of flaws with the Paleo diet, we’re not here to say […]

If you’re one of the 29 million people who suffer from diabetes in the US, you’re probably thinking ‘Oh, great, another fad diet’, but that’s where you’re wrong! My name is Dr Nicola Siso, and I am a lifelong Type 1 diabetic, with a PhD in Holistic Nutrition that I’ve dedicated to reversing the symptoms of diabetes. When I was first diagnosed – age 29! – I was in shock, and I felt like my life was over. All I wanted was to have energy, lose weight, and feel great again, but with the late diagnosis I was convinced that […]

Caring For and Cultivating Succulents

by Matt
These special little plants have been oft ignored in the gardening scene but are slowly rising in popularity due to their charm, beauty, ease of caring for, and hardiness. Succulents come in a ton of varieties, including miniature-sized, which are extremely popular right now. Obviously, there’s still a lot to know if you want to properly take care of your succulent – you can’t just buy one, plop it on a window sill, and abandon it. Like any plant, they need attention, just a different kind of attention. As is often the case, there is a spectrum of needs for […]

The water situation in flint started in 2014 when the source of city’s drinking water was changed to the Flint River.

What Makes Smoothies So Good For Us? Here’s The Facts

by Matt
Easy to make, tons of variety, and unarguably delicious? That’s pretty much the best way to describe a smoothie, but you could easily add “highly nutritious” to that list. If you’re not very well acquainted to the new world of smoothies, they’re more than chic drinks you can grab at the mall, or a bizarre vegan trend. The reason why you’re seeing them pop up all over the place is that they are not only perfect as treats, they are easy-to-make meals that blow most Western “meals” out of the water in terms of nutrition and our biological needs. So […]
