Only been on the job for a month and have really enjoyed working here. Today the boss told me to pick something off the Jersey Mike's menu because he was buying us all lunch. I told him thank you but…Continue
I just watched the documentary last night. I was curious how the volunteers would describe their 6 week challenge and if the results showed a healthier outcome. I'm a yoga teacher, eat organic and…Continue
Hello All,I have to say that I was familiar with the mistreatment of animals but this took it to a whole new level. I cried so hard and had to close my eyes to most of what was being shown. I am a…Continue
Hi, all! I have been vegetarian for nearly two years which started as a resolution for 2013 after I watched Vegucated for the first time in December 2012. Now I'm ready to take it a step further and…Continue
I often write in an attempt to sort out the mess inside my brain. Sometimes it helps. So I might as well put my fingertips to the keyboard on this life change.

While doing the dishes, I started getting really hungry. By the time I was done with dishes, I was starving. So I started preparing something…Continue
So, this morning, after realizing I needed to increase my iron intake for energy, I made a decent shake, which was basically broccoli, mango, kale, and watermelon. I waited a little while after drinking it and then worked out at the gym.
When I got home, I had a few walnuts and almonds, then some pistachios. I cooked lunch, which was green lentils, with raw broccoli, kale, avocado and green pepper, with just some red wine vinegar and mustard as dressing.
This did not go…Continue
I went out and worked on weeding the garden (man is it bad) I should say attempt. They are so in there. I was only able to get probably 10 percent done. On top of that I checked on my celery. I thought the bunny has been eating it. Nope I apparently can't grow celery as there really is nothing growing. I would think after it being planted for a month there would be more than just a few leaves (they were bought as seedling and grown pretty well at that.). Oh well. My…Continue
