We all tend to over-indulge during a holiday week, but rather than dwelling on the unhealthy, you can look ahead and bounce back.
It’s that time of the year when we not only have to concentrate on eating healthy, but on staying properly hydrated too. The summer heat can cause discomforting symptoms if regular and adequate fluids are not consumed.
We know that water is good for us, but we might not be able to put our fingers on why. Here are some details on water’s health benefits and how to work more water into your day!
I’ve been wanting to play more with fermenting my own food, and home made apple cider vinegar (ACV) seems like a great place to start! Apple cider vinegar is sort of a wonder food. From cooking to cleaning to medicinal uses, ACV is just plain good stuff. You can get ACV at the store, but […]
We had a nice discussion over on the Facebook page about giving up coffee, and I thought it might be nice to continue the conversation over here.

I’d been dying to try the elusive black trumpet mushroom, and it didn’t disappoint.
I’ve always been a fan of kombucha, the fermented tea touted for its health benefits. But the buzz I would get from store-bought kombucha always made me feel like a light-weight. The labels claimed that the tea had less than a 0.5% alcohol content, but drinking a bottle of kombucha would make me feel like […]
Heatwaves tend to have a way of killing appetites and making us feel too lazy to cook. Before succumbing to a freezie & popsicles diet, try out these energy-boosting, easy, oven-free meals and nutritional necessities.
Kombucha tea is touted for its health benefits. In addition to being an alkaline beverage, it’s rich in B vitamins and in vitamin C. It’s got a sort of tangy flavor and a little bit of carbonation. The taste almost reminds me of a super tangy lemonade, though it takes a little bit of getting […]
