Seldom is there silence in Paris. Except that magic time early in the morning. Before the noisy folk awake. Before the children scamper off to school, always feeling compelled to yell at their compadres. And, most importantly, before the jackhammers start pounding and clacking in the building across the street. I’m no stranger to noise ...

Yes, hooked! We all know we should be eating our greens, but somehow we never quite get around to it, probably because munching through a pile of greens daily can be boring and lengthy, and therefore unsustainable (especially during the colder months). Here’s where green smoothies save the day. These past few weeks, I’ve been reading Green for ...

It turns out mosquitos like Norwegian-Americans. I know this because I currently look like I have the chicken pox. None of my companions in French Guiana had more than two bites, whereas I had two nearly every square inch. Resulting in: me smelling constantly of lavender essential oil (lovely) and me having to exercise every ounce of ...

A very happy (nearly) new year from Ann and me! As 2017 rolls in, perhaps you’re thinking about setting some resolutions.

We assure you that, after trying our ...

As unconsumeristic as we may try to be, the holidays can be financially challenging — even for the minimalists. Those squats you said you’d do to prepare for holiday indulgence? Instead it’s your credit card who’s getting the workout. Presents for the fambam, friends, colleagues… holiday travel, and extraneous mundaneries like wrapping paper, scotch tape, ...

You’ve heard it before — your spine is your lifeline. And chances are you’ve heard of chiropractic… maybe even tried it. But maybe you didn’t stick with it because maybe you didn’t find the right one, or maybe an MD told you it wasn’t important. Au contraire, mon MD frère. Chiropractic is all kinds of essential ...

Ann and I have been asked about vitamin B12 a lot recently. It’s the first thing people tell you to watch out for when you say you’re a vegan. But – newsflash – B12 isn’t actually inherent in meat, nor in dairy. It comes from the soil. So for an animal product to contain vitamin ...
