It's no secret that organic food is the safest for your family, and although studies aren't 100 percent conclusive, it appears that buying organic will not only protect you from ingesting harmful pesticides and other chemicals, but it will ensure that you are eating the most nutritionally rich food available. The problem is, most regular grocers in the United States only offer a very small selection of organic foods, and they tend to cost significantly more than non-organic foods. According to the rules of supply and demand, the tables will turn in our favor once more people begin buying organic, but in the meantime, here are five ways you can make the switch without busting the bank:Continue Reading >

Your motivation is at an all-time high and you're focused on your goal. You've been eating right, getting your exercise in, and your hard work is actually starting to pay off. Every day, your clothes get looser and the scale gets lighter. And the best part is, it's getting easier. Your healthy lifestyle is becoming a habit.

Many health and fitness enthusiasts love to spit out this popular saying: "Abs are made in the kitchen." The reason they say it is to stress the importance of diet. And that no matter how hard you work in the gym, if you're eating junk, you aren't going to ever look the way you want.
But while I agree with that thought, the saying is all wrong. Because many people are setting themselves up for failure before they even step into the kitchen. Why? Because they're sabotaging themselves at the grocery store! They're making shopping mistakes that makes it almost impossible for them to succeed.
Well, I'm going to clear up the most common errors right now and show you how you can shop yourself slim!
Your days of slaving over a kitchen stove and food shopping may be over thanks to a beverage called Soylent. The nutrient packed powder was created by 24-year-old Rob Rhinehart, a software developer, who decided that he wanted to make people's lives a lot easier by never having to eat, clean up, or go to the supermarket again. You see, Soylent is supposed to replace all your meals without the messy cleanup or effort to make it in the first place. It EVEN helps you lose weight and gives you energy!
I guess you can say that if this is the wave of the future, then you'll be drinking your favorite meal (or something like it) instead of eating it very soon. If you're like me and think this is a bit strange, then you'd be surprised to know that Rhinehart ALREADY has over $410,000 raised in his campaign to mass produce Soylent. So... will it be available to the rest of us?Continue Reading >
