pros and cons of studying holistic nutrition

My master plan was to become a Hollywood superstar. I’m not even kidding. But after a decade of the dross and disillusionment of Hollywood (at least in my experience,) I hightailed it out of there and never looked back. Anyway, that story is a whole thing and may result in an epic novel at some ...

eco-vegan-summer-essentials

Summer oughta be easy-breezy. Now, this summer might be a bit… different, but there are certain essentials that remain intact: throwing off our shoes, bathing in the sun, drinking fresh water and matcha lattes, and eating strawberries and cream. Yum. At least that’s what I’m into. Eco + Vegan Summer Livin’ How to make your ...

Right now I have so little time to spend time doing the things I love. Working over full time, I barely have time for Veggie Magnifique, or even household chores. Like, when can I clean my house? Fold laundry? Write thank you notes? Let alone relish languid afternoons, long walks, or drawn-out chats with friends. ...

I’m the first to eschew modern convenience in the name of quality, homemade, and… let’s be honest, tech-circumvention. Even if it takes longer. When I was in my early 20s, for example, my old roommate in LA used to gawk at my “old fashioned” ways, i.e. using a handheld can opener instead of an electric ...

It snowed this morning. No biggie. Just the 9th of May, and it’s snowing. Now, I’m told that New Hampshire weather isn’t always this crazy, and that I ought not worry… but as a new mover to this state, obviously I’m raising an eyebrow. I realize that I’m talking about the weather, and before you ...
