Energy Fix

Finding energy when you need it can be quite challenging. I remember the days when I couldn’t consider myself awake until I had a large cup of coffee, or two. Even in high school I would pop energy pills in exchange for all-night study sessions. […]

Incidental Exercise

We all aim to adopt healthy habits in our lives, but some may not come as easy as others. Incidental exercises are the movements we carry out as we live our daily life. We complete numerous activities during the day and may not realize the […]

This week’s favorite was something I had been looking for ever since I started eating raw. While I was home in Orange County for the holidays last year I managed to find a vegetable spiral slicer at Williams Sonoma. Unfortunately, they were sold out at […]
