I’ve been deep in the weeds with more things that I can count lately, but I wanted to pop in and share a few things with all of you before I disappear into the wild again. Since I gave birth to my youngest last summer, I’ve been back in the gym hitting it hard. With all of the talk about supplements and if they...

Vegan Nutrition and Supplements

The real world has been quite busy this week, so I don’t have all my thoughts together for the post I’d intended to write for today. However, I did come across this amazing post from No Meat Athlete today that was too good not to share. This post goes into the most detail on vegan nutrition and supplements than I’ve seen anywhere else and...

Though veganism is something I’m deeply interested in on all levels, one of the things I am most inquisitive about is how it affects our health and wellness. Nutrition is something that I am passionate about even when the veganism angle isn’t in play (though most roads lead back to a whole food, plant-based diet in the end anyway), and so I try to...

Thoughts on Ex-Vegans and the Vegan Community
Read more

Another one bites the dust. As some of you may have heard, Alex Jamieson, author of The Great American Detox Diet, “came out” this week that she’s no longer vegan. The comments on her post range from complete outrage to relief and I find myself feeling somewhere in the middle of that scale. On one hand, I understand that we all have cravings and...

I am officially a fitness nerd (thank you, CrossFit). Seriously, I think about fitness just about all of the time and not just the act of working out, but also the science behind why certain things work and why our bodies do what they do. I’ve never been that into science to be honest with you, but I suddenly find myself learning anatomy, physiology,...

Whole Life Challenge

Feb 15, 2013 by

I’m not normally one for nutrition or wellness hype. I don’t do cleanses (with the exception of my own juice cleanses once or twice a year) and I don’t buy into most supplements (exceptions: protein powder and multi-vitamin) or fitness/nutrition programs (exception P90X). However, any time that I have gone out on a limb and invested my time and energy into a program, such...

Going Gluten-Free (Sort Of)
Read more

As I made mention of earlier this week, I decided to cut gluten out (mostly) of my diet for a couple of weeks to see if it improved a few very minor health issues I was having. Though I am not too concerned about these issues, I did want to see what kind of natural suggestions there were for dealing with them. After reading...

Menu Ideas for Getting Fit
Read more

I was a bit nervous about hitting the publish button on this one. Getting healthy and fit are, in my opinion, very personal things, and anytime you talk about personal things you open yourself up to¬†criticism. But blogging, just like any other kind of journalism, is meant to be seen and read and if you are doing it well, it’s likely to cause some...
