Christmas Fruit N’ Nut Truffles (Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, No Refined Sugar)

The festive season has an incredible reputation for encouraging less-than-healthy eating. Yet, with a little extra care and consideration we can still enjoy super-healthy celebrations, whilst knowing that every morsel that we eat and share with family and friends can be filled with health affirming goodness. I’ve enjoyed eating healthful foods for years and would choose wholesome plant-based delights any day of the year. Learning to create very satiating recipes has shown me that eating this way is so alive, so vibrant and can play an important role in keeping us healthy and fit. Now, I couldn’t imagine any other way.

Top 10 Superfoods – You Might Be Surprised

A Win for the Little Guy: “Eat More Kale” Dude Beats Big Corp in Court

A neat little story out of Vermont, where a hippie stencil artist and self-described “defiant dude” who makes maybe $40,000 a year selling Eat More Kale t-shirts just won a three-year trademark battle against fast-food giant Chik-fil-A – annual sales $4.6 billion, or nine sandwiches per second – which had argued that his slogan’s “misappropriation of Chick-fil-A’s EAT MOR CHIKIN intellectual property (is) likely to cause confusion” (though they failed to specify just how stoned you’d have to get to confuse eating a t-shirt with fake chicken.) Bo Muller-Moore had protested his t-shirts, sweatshirts et al, designed to promote local agriculture, pose no threat to the giant – who, besides, don’t even spell “More” correctly.

11 Delicious Vegetarian Soup & Stew Recipes

There are few meals as simple as opening a can of soup, plopping the contents into a pot or bowl and heating it up. But there is little satisfying about this kind of meal when it comes from a can from the supermarket. The affordable canned soups are loaded up with sodium and other unwanted additives, with ingredients that have had the nutrients processed right out of them. And if you’re going for healthier, more locally made soups then you are probably paying what feels like a small fortune. Take control of your kitchen and food budget by making these soups for yourself. You can put them in individual containers and store them in the fridge and freezer so you can have the same level of convenience but for less money and a much greater level of satisfaction.

Americans consume water regularly without a passing thought, even though it can lead to a wide range of health problems including brain damage, dementia, bone cancer, muscle disorders, and thyroid disease. With few exceptions, most other countries do not fluoridate their drinking water, and for good reason—fluoride is a toxic drug linked with an array of potentially serious health problems. Yet despite irrefutable evidence of harm, the United States still adds fluoride to municipal water supplies reaching nearly 211 million Americans, including infants, the elderly, and those with chronic health problems.
