    My Review of 'Game Changers'

    My Review of 'Game Changers'

    I have a few friends that have become vegan, and they're really into the diet. I understand the reasons why they've become vegan, but I still haven't become full-on vegan. I obviously know that too much meat is bad for me, but I eat it not because of the nutrition, but for the taste. It's sort of like asking everyone to go sugarless for the rest of their lives. We all know it's good for us, but we're all addicted to it, so we can't.

    Variety in the Woods

    Variety in the Woods

    I must start with a disclaimer: I grew up in the Poconos and moved back twice more over the years. I watched it evolve from a wooded wilderness safe from tourists five days of the week to a destination full of city folk who chop down every tree on their increasingly tiny lots. I remember few chain restaurants, local roads that were safe from the tourists, and frequent winter power outages. Now, most chains have taken over Route 611 and beyond, GPS means no backroad is safe, and, well, depending on where you live, the power still sucks…

    Sap! Review

    Sap! Review

    What do you know about sap? Before trying these drinks, I knew little to nothing about it. In my head, I always confused it with maple syrup. I’m aware that these two things are in fact, different, but I never had a reason to seek out any answers. I guess it was just one of those things I was comfortable in my confusion of. I knew it was sticky and came from trees. That’s as far as my knowledge went. So when I saw the Sap! variety pack of maple seltzer, maple soda and sparkling birch, I thought I could use this as a learning experience.

    Foods Celebrities Refuse to Eat

    There are certain foods that people don't like after tasting them. There are some foods people don't like because of the way they look. There are some foods people don't like because of the way they smell. Then there are some foods people refuse to eat because they were forced to eat so much of it when they were young. They vowed to never eat that food again when they grew up and left their childhood home. They said when they make their own money, they would eat what they wanted and not be forced to eat what they didn't like. Many of those people have kept the promise they made to themselves long ago and still refuse to eat certain foods today.

    The Czech Republic or Czechia is a landlocked country in Central Europe. Its neighbors are Austria, Germany, Poland, and Slovakia. Czech cuisine has been influenced by Austrian and Hungarian cuisines. The national cuisine is based on ingredients that can be grown domestically such as cereals, leguminous plants, and potatoes. These are usually served with pork, beef, or poultry, and in some places, with freshwater fish.

    If you are #basic and love Starbucks but are trying to make healthy choices, this post is for you! I have been on my own health and fitness journey, and what I have learned is that when you start off trying to cut everything out, and become super restrictive all at once, more than likely you're not going to be able to sustain that way of eating. I believe in starting off slow, and trying to be more mindful about what you are consuming. So making some healthier swaps at first can make the transition a little smoother.

Then again, it could be something to do with the fact that these types of goodies can easily be build into a fun and creative activity with children.

    7 Benefits of Switching to Organic Food

    7 Benefits of Switching to Organic Food

    The question of whether organic food has any merit as a healthier alternative is a controversial one. The reason for this is because it should be healthier in theory, but you should be keenly aware of the fact that produce is defined as organic within certain parameters, and a willing grower of these groceries can find holes in these parameters in order to save money, and still retain the required stamp of approval. Still, the bottom line is that the organic variety truly is healthier most of the time, so it really ends up being a question of whether the quality corresponds fairly to the increase in pricing. In order to be certain about this conundrum, you should just take a look at seven benefits of switching to organic food.

    Lester's Fixins Review

    Lester's Fixins Review

    This is one of the most chaotic things I’ve done in my life. Not just as far as beverages go, but in general. I’m willing to try pretty much any food once, and that extends to beverages as well. There’s no way I can justify what I’m about to do.I’ve been curious about these drinks for years. I’ve seen them on Amazon, but would always talk myself out of trying them, for completely obvious reasons. I have some predictions about which will be the most repulsive. Ranch is topping the list. There’s literally no way it can be good. I’m not really into Ranch dressing. I prefer Caesar. That being said, I wouldn’t want to try a Caesar dressing soda either. I can’t decide if these drinks would be better or worse without carbonation. It doesn’t matter, because they ARE carbonated and I WILL try them all. The minutiae of it all is pretty irrelevant at this point. What I WILL say, before even trying them, is that I appreciate that they’re all made with cane sugar. I appreciate a nice cane sugar soda. I know people will judge me for trying these. I understand that I will be persecuted and my beliefs will be brought into question. I’m not doing this for ME, I’m doing this for YOU and I’m doing this for US. I hope you all appreciate this sacrifice I’m making, even if you yell at me for it. OK, now let’s get into tasting and reviews.

    Clean Cause Review

    Clean Cause Review

    After trying the SAP! drinks, I vowed to try more beverages that have a cause or positive message attached to it. I’m looking into more brands that do this (and I’m taking suggestions if you have any). Companies aren’t usually transparent about where their money goes or where the ingredients are sourced, and a lot of us don’t really question it. Why would we? We were raised in a climate where corporate brands have been vying for our attention, and it’s easy to miss smaller companies that are trying to do better. It’s tough deciding what brands or companies to spend your money with, when it really comes down to it. I don’t know that there’s necessarily a right choice in some instances. There’s constant stress and grappling with spending the money you earn, and how to spend it (unless you’re rich, but I don’t believe rich people have any reason to read or relate to anything I write). I even have some skepticism when I do find a brand that seems to hit the right marks with me. What are they hiding? What are their values? Sometimes the lines are too blurry to make a distinction between pandering and genuine mission statements. Do you ever feel that way? It seems like inclusivity and awareness are just brand benchmarkers now. But again, the lines are pretty blurry. It’s rare that I find a brand whose owner has transparency about their motives, so it led me to seek out something and report back.
