    Great interview! As a collegiate athlete, it has taken me a long time to enjoy an “easy” workout. I would feel like if it wasn’t an hour and a half of sweat and heavy breathing, it didn’t count. I injured myself a lot that way. Now I can find peace in short exercises throughout the day and walking. Not to mention with 3 kids I don’t have time for “workouts” anymore. Some push-ups here, some pull-ups there, some squats over there, some chasing kids around in circles and I’m good!

    No wonder that Spirulina, has been declared by World Health Organization (WHO) as.

  • Therefore, eat blueberries whenever you get a chance in any
    form you like. So it has a less full bodied flavor than tamari and it has a larger alcohol
    content which isn’t necessarily a problem but there’s less flavor to it and since it has wheat in it people with wheat allergies and people with gluten intolerance which is a big percentage of the population cannot consume it.
    You need to have a number of superfoods in your diet

  • If embarking on a homemade raw food diet for your pet (sometimes referred to as BARF), thoroughly research the area first as nutritional balance is essential.

    Stone Age is long gone, but this simple example shows why we have this mechanism.

    Soy – Look for tofu, soy milk, or edamame rather than soy powder.

  • Bring 2 cups of water to a boil and add the red quinoa. Doing a lot of small things, can make a huge difference in the quality of your life.
