A Newbie's Guide to Seasonal Eating and Cooking - by Christy Morgan
I recently contributed to JL's Vegan 101 Seriesand I wanted to share it with you all at Christina Cooks! For me, being vegan isn’t just about saving the animals (though that is the most important piece of the puzzle for me).

Keep Your Resolution To Stay Fit - By Ken Dill
Not enough people in this country exercise regularly. I know that may sound like a bold statement, but I’m sure it’s true. I don’t have the exact percentages at my fingertips, but until it’s 100% it’s not enough! Exercise is not optional for healthy living. Just like eating and sleeping, it is an absolute necessity.

Why Must Corporations Sell Lies? - by Christy Morgan
Living in Los Angeles, I’m constantly bombarded with billboards trying to sell me stuff. It’s one of the most annoying things I face living here, next to traffic, where I sit with nothing to do but look at all the billboards. Most of the billboards selling a product are selling lies. For instance, the newest Coca Cola campaign says to “Open Happiness.” As if drinking Coke is going to make you happy. What a joke! Drinking Coke is going to send you into a spiral of depression, obesity, and diabetes. Sodas in general are known for their high sugar content, high fructose corn syrup to be exact, which is linked to all kinds of health problems.

Living in Los Angeles, I'm surrounded by anorexic Hollywood stars and regular people are consumed with dieting and starvation. It isn't psychologically or physically healthy to put so much concern and energy into the way we look. We create toxicity in our entire life when we become obsessed with the physical. I know firsthand what toxic thoughts can do. Even though I've been pretty thin my whole life, I would break down in tears looking at my thighs in the mirror. Our society, advertising, fashion magazines, and culture have allowed this to happen to both the women and men of my generation. Read more
Meatless Monday: Take it Easy - by Christy Morgan
Studying plant-based nutrition for many years, with many different doctors and experts, reading different books, and experimenting with my own diet and lifestyle has shown me many things. And it's confirmed how drastically our health in this country has declined. A diet full of chemicals and fake food, an animal-centered diet high in fat, our complete lack of exercise, an over-consumption of sugar and processed food are just some of the offenders. But there isn’t one culprit that we can pinpoint as the bad guy. Read more
