Grass Fed Beef

It’s funny how things change. Not too long ago I was attempting to transition to a raw food diet. While I still see some merits to eating raw, I realize 100% raw is not for me. I think I captured my true mindset in my vegetarian, vegan or whole food post. As I was roaming… Read More

We Are What We Eat

We Are What We Eat

This is not a profound statement, and I’m sure we all know this by now. Just yesterday while I was at the mall, I met a man that personified the statement. He was in front of me at the check out line. He purchased several hundred dollars worth of workout clothes. He was a personable… Read More
