Cowspiracy – Fantastic Movie

By | 2017-12-19T11:28:03+00:00 June 7th, 2016|Health & Lifestyle|0 Comments

My wife and I just watched a great movie called Cowspiracy.  I thought I knew all there was to know about being vegan, but this film really opened my eyes.  This film is one that everyone should watch, not just vegans. It lays out the facts and research so nicely that even a meat eater should begin to question their food

Little Vegan Restaurant in Guatemala

I came across this little vegan restaurant in Guatemala as I was going through my pictures from our recent trip.   I never would have thought we’d see a vegan restaurant in this out of the way/under developed part of the country.   Unfortunately, we just finished with dinner so we couldn’t eat there.   However, it didn’t stop us from buying a couple

My husband and I just returned from a vacation in Antigua Guatemala.   One of the things we did was a vegan cooking class.   This was one of the most fun things we did.  The class was the El Frijol Feliz Cooking School (http://www.frijolfeliz.com/). The owner’s name was Luis and our chef’s name was Leivi.     Luis runs a Thai restaurant

Because our health is of the utmost importance, we should strive to make the best choices in terms of our diet, exercise, and making sure our bodies are in their optimum state. While most of us rely on medication to cure or mitigate diseases, everyone is still susceptible to health risks caused by genetics, the environment, and our overall lifestyles. Dr.

Last weekend was insane! My feet are sore, my arms are sore, my tummy is sore.. wait, is that a bad thing? 😉 But it was all worth it because I got to attend the Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, California! I went two of the days and still wasn’t even able to see all of the convention! I am strongly

Tea vs. Coffee

By | 2017-12-19T16:46:12+00:00 January 28th, 2014|Health & Lifestyle|0 Comments

Earlier on my Instagram account, I asked everyone whether or not they were a tea or coffee kind of person. Surprisingly, the large majority of everyone said they were tea drinkers! I thought it would be more 50/50.. but that is still great! I wanted to help sort out the pros and cons of drinking tea and coffee. I also wrote

Save Money.. Buy in Bulk!

It can get so expensive re-buying already packaged flour, spices, nuts, and other ingredients. To save some money, try buying in bulk! If you really think about it.. you’re just paying for the containers and packaging that your food comes in if you don’t! I buy my spices, nuts, dates, and flours in bulk. Grocery

First U-Pick Day!

So the other day I went to an organic farm in Oak Glen California! I had never been apple picking before so I was extremely excited to take apples right off the tree! Can’t get any fresher than that, right? I had such a great time! I can’t believe more people don’t do

Homemade Toothpaste!

By | 2017-12-19T19:12:42+00:00 August 24th, 2013|Health & Lifestyle|2 Comments

The idea of making your own toothpaste might be a new idea for you but it is a great way to know EXACTLY what is in your toothpaste!  Normally, I would buy Tom’s fluoride free toothpaste. I unfortunately don’t live anywhere near a place that sells this kind of toothpaste and I’m in a rut if I run out before I

Cook and Prepare in Bulk!

I know it can be hard to find time in the day to cook when you have a million other things going on. Yet, if you want to live a healthy vegan lifestyle, cooking is what you have to do. So the way I solve this problem is cooking in bulk! When I go to the grocery
