Why Do We Suffer So Much? It’s Us vs. Our Grandparents

The big question is why do we suffer so much?  I don’t remember my grandparents or especially my great grandparents ever suffering from allergies, hives, gluten sensitivity, or autoimmune diseases.  So what gives?   Well, they lived entirely different day to day then we do. Let’s take a look and see what we may be doing […]

Your Summer Refresh Plan

My recent post ushered in that Summer feeling.  I gave you a great Creamsicle refresher that will add high quality protein to your day or to start your day or even post-workout recovery.  I’m reminded by many of you that it’s that time.  You know… shorts & tank tops, sundresses and bathing suits for the pool and/or beach.  […]
