Sam I Am
I’m writing this blog so you all can remember me as who I am today: happy, healthy (for the most part), and satiated. Come tomorrow morning, you might not recognize angry-famished-monster-me, for I will be starting a 10-day cleanse in which pizza and Thai takeout are not allowed.
GMO: You’ve heard the term in the news, in passing with friends and family, and as you’re browsing for food in the grocery store; but what does it mean?
Every year, many Americans fill their homes with the savory smells of a roasted turkey, yams, green beans, stuffing—and I haven’t even gotten to the pie.
So, I’ve been on a bit of an ancient medicine binge lately. Most recently, my body has begun to harness the greatness that is apple cider vinegar (ACV). Before I started with Natural Solutions, I had never really considered drinking vinegar for health reasons, but after listening to testimonials and doing my research, I decided, what the heck? I’ll give it a try.
Although I went a little piercing and tattoo-happy in my college days, I’ve never been a huge fan of needles. I cannot watch needles puncturing my skin because I WILL get ill and I WILL pass out.
Growing up, I was always a physical kid. I lived in the middle of the woods on a lake in central Minnesota, where the nearest town with more than 1,000 people was 20 miles away. Needless to say, I had to make my own fun, which wasn’t very difficult considering I had ample amounts of nature’s playground to work with.
A few years ago, a friend of mine decided to grow his own produce in a grand backyard garden that he built using simple, but purposeful, tools and his own two hands. He grew an abundance of different vegetables like tomatoes, assorted greens, carrots, peas, peppers—among many others.
For as long as I can remember, music has played a vital role in my life as a cure-all, feel-good, natural mood remedy. My favorite songs and artists have lent me a hand, a shoulder to cry on, and most importantly, that warm, fuzzy feeling—you know what I’m talking about.
In light of Earth Day approaching, I’m calling all fashionistas to reduce your carbon footprint by checking out some eco-friendly clothing brands and designers. But buyer beware: Some companies that claim to offer “organic” or “sustainable” clothing might be frauds—throwing around the term “green” just to hop on the trendy eco bandwagon.
America’s craft beer craze is in full-swing and shows no sign of slowing down. The Brewers Association estimates there are more than 2,400 craft breweries in the US, which is up from 89 in the late 70s.
