Does it puzzle anyone else why people still choose to drink diet drinks?? (Not to mention normal soda, too) Like it genuinely baffles me! Even after all of the research that is put out there and the studies that have shown us that the term “diet” in front of any food or drink, is straight up foolingyou.
If you’re looking to sweeten a drink, it’s always better to go the natural route. Your body will recognize it more than these artificial chemicals that it doesn’t know how to process! Anything sweet in general should always be taken in moderation of course. If you’re ever confused about what to use, just ask yourself which one is the most nature-derived. The more closely a product is sourced from nature/plants/the earth the better it will be for you and easier for your body to process. Plus some even have health benefits such as honey and it’s inflammatory-fighting powers for example.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!! My family and I (aka: my uncle, grandparents, and my grandmas brother + his wife) are keeping it very low key by cooking up some fish, veggies, and then of course pumpkin pie from Costco because you gotta. My brother is in NY, sister is in London with her hubby, and my parents are back in California, so it’s pretty spread out this year. The fact that we are able to even go to/live in all of these places is just one of the trillion things i’m thankful for today. Have an amazing day!!
Different: This (pic above) California residency/enterprise is testing and redefining what “living spaces” mean to us and investigating what day-to-day living requires from us as people.
Health: This inflammatory ingredient, that you probably just drank from your almond milk latte this morning, has just been banned from organic food! Hooray hooray!

Wanderlust-ing: If I ever make it to this area of New Zealand I need to try to check this place out. Their retreats look so nice, too!
Science: Exciting news about stopping Alzheimer’s from gong haywire.
Lol-ing: LIFE magazine reminding us that we have come a long way…
Making: this pumpkin tart that reminds me of all of those raw cakes you see on all those healthy food blogs/sites. Kind of a unique and healthier take on pumpkin pie!
Dang: this is going to be the first city to allow people to use marijuana in bars and restaurants woah.
Health: I love this article on exactly why fats 100% don’t make you fat and counting calories is so misleading.
“The misinformation that has been pushed on our population by the food industry and our government, which is that all calories are the same- that’s true in a laboratory, when you burn them. It’s not true when you eat them.”
