What is Healthy Living?
Healthy living, by definition, is just that – “health” and “living.”
Healthy living encompasses much more than just food and exercise. It embodies everything else in your life; your home, your work environment and even your relationships with others. I mean sure, it is great that you are eating organic, grass-fed and even Non-GMO foods, but what else?
You’re at the grocer and get in line to check out with your three items. You glance up at the guest in front of you to get an idea of how much longer you will be waiting in line, all the while tempted by the woeful wall of candies and chocolate. It’s a couponer. Not just a one or two coupons (snagged off the pasta box while in line) either. But a bonafide binder-in-hand, ten of each item, total is going to go from $762.89 to $33 with gift cards after coupons – Couponer. All the while, you’re thinking to yourself, “ain’t nobody got time for that” or “why must you pick today of all days for your haul, when I just needed milk, coffee and goldfish crackers.”
The countdown to the infamous Valentine’s Day, a day for cheap chocolates and wilted roses, has begun. But what if, this year could be different? What if, this time you won the mad V-Day rush and came out on top with the best gift your guy or gal could ask for? Oh, it’s possible. No, a string quartet and a diamond ring worthy of the Titanic are necessary. (more…)
The O word. Nope, not the one you’re thinking about, the other one; organic. What exactly does organic mean? That seems to be the question of the hour nowadays with the world of health and wellness going head-to-head with the food and Franken-food industry. Yep, frankenfood, it’s a word – look it up.
Meal planning. You may have overheard the soccer mom mafia talk about it or maybe come across a mouth watering photo montage of meat and veggies on Pinterest. Either way, meal planning is a thing, and it’s a nifty game changer at that, once you’ve mastered it.
Ah Brunch! A simple word that can wear the cloak of verb, noun or even adjective if you tried hard enough.. “OMG that cocktail is so brunch!” But the question of where to, how and when not to brunch always comes to mind. If one does brunch, where do you go? How do you know that’s where you should go? Can you bring your dog? What about the kids? I mean, really, who knew a non-shalant trip to the local watering hole for pancakes would turn into such a cultural plague of social cues and what-to-do’s.
Have no fear, we are here to “brunch” it down.. See what we did there?
Genetically Modified Organisms. Also known as GMOs, with a silent and unmistakeable taboo that surrounds them. But why? What exactly are they, and why are they all of a sudden the “bees knees” in the news, the grocery store and your box of Frosted Flakes in the cupboard?
I’m sure we have all said it before.. the best love story is the one we call our own. Well, this cold never be more true in our case. Our story is one filled with ups and downs just like many others share, but in the end we continue to grow as a family whom strives for a fuller, happier, whole life.
