Always Read the Nutrition Label

By Dr. Miranda Graham | The Vegan MD

The healthiest food you can get will always be from the produce section at your local grocery store or farmer’s market. However, in the era of high-stress jobs and familial responsibilities that don’t always leave time to make everything yourself from scratch, learning how to properly read food labels to make sure that you are making the best choices out of what is available to you is a must. 

The Minimalist Kitchen

I hate gadgets. I’m glad that’s off my chest. From

Hallo-Whining!

Okay, I admit that Halloween was always my favorite holiday. It involved dressing up in costume, lots and lots of sweets and…it kicked off the holiday season with glitter and glamour that is unrivaled.

 

Then I adopted a healthy lifestyle and it all fell apart. Truthfully. As I work in the mission I love…and I do love my work, I discovered that giant bowls of mini-Kit Kats just didn’t cut it anymore. I simply couldn’t hand out “poison” to all those adorable kids.

 

Our Little Ones

It’s Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and Childhood Obesity Awareness Month so let’s talk about our kids and their wellness, shall we?

According to the internet, June is dedicated to helping men to find their way to wellness. It reads: “The purpose of Men’s Health Month is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys.”

 

Don’t Fry Day?

It’s Don’t Fry Day, but it’s not what you think. This is “take care of your skin” day. As Memorial Day weekend is on us and we unofficially kick off the lazy days of summer, think of your precious skin as you head outside to play…and use these tricks to keep glowing from now til Labor Day:

 

If you drink a lot of coffee, try green tea now and then. Coffee is great (I adore espresso, truly…) but it can dehydrate us leaving our skin looking…dry and sallow.

Get Outside and Play!

It’s May and the height of spring. We’ve done the cleaning, decluttered our lives and now it’s time to refresh our fitness routines.

 

How?

 

Get outside and play!
