If you had a hard time getting the 3 to 5 servings in before, you aren’t going to be thrilled to hear that those numbers have been increased. Whether you lightly cook them or throw them into a blender, your body needs the nutrients that [...]

by David Sautter When it comes to the age old question of “Coffee or tea?”, the typical response is coffee. People need that caffeine buzz. It’s like asking if you want a super charged SUV or a hybrid for your next road trip. The SUV gives you the initial boost that you’re looking for but eventually you’ll run out of gas and need to fill up. The hybrid just keeps [...]

by David Sautter What is it about ancient Chinese civilizations and super foods? I’m not complaining though. They have provided numerous super foods as well as a chance for me to write about them. Goji Berries have been consumed for thousands of years and their popularity is still alive and well today. Grown primarily in China, Mongolia, and regions of Tibet, these tiny berries pack a powerful punch of antioxidants [...]

by David Sautter I know what you’re thinking and no, this is not the dinner special at your local Indian restaurant. Kombucha is the name of a super food that you need to get acquainted with and that’s what I’m here to help you do.

by David Sautter Honey is often associated with bees (obviously), Winnie-the-Pooh, and that candy that you can never seem to get out of your teeth once it’s in there. Not exactly the best reputation for something that is considered a super food throughout the health and fitness world. Honey is a wondrous thing. It can protect you during cold season, improve your athletic performance and help you heal. I’ll review [...]

by David Sautter Walk into any gym and I guarantee you will see a plethora of the classic protein shaker lining the floors, next to treadmills and free weights alike. For every type of shaker will be an equal number of varying supplements within. When you ask what’s inside, without a doubt, the response you’ll get the most is: “Oh, it’s such and such protein.” Protein, specifically whey protein, has [...]

by David Sautter After dragging your body from the bed and slamming down on the alarm clock, there’s a good chance that your morning routine begins with one thing: Coffee. 9 to 5 warriors, which encompass the majority, have a need to stay fully functional in order to enter the battle of paperwork, co-workers, and management. Unfortunately, the daily grind throws them into that familiar slump just around lunch time [...]

by David Sautter When we last left off, we discovered that our courageous hero of the concrete jungle (You!) has fought too valiantly for too long and needs a break. It was your humble writer that provided the solution: a Raw Food Detox. You will eat only RAW fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, sprouts, and super-foods for 3 to 7 days. For some of you this is downright terrifying and understandably [...]

by David Sautter   The word “detox” is one of the most misused and abused words in the health and fitness world. It’s right up there with “fat burner.” Despite the overflow of products that claim to have a detox effect, the true definition of the word is lost on many consumers. A detox is where the body is able to naturally expunge the toxins that have built up over [...]

Once widely believed to cause madness, epilepsy, tuberculosis and death, absinthe was banned in much of Europe and the United States for a greater part of the 20th century. In the 1990s, in the time of re-evaluation of old ways and social transformation, absinthe has been found to be no more dangerous than any other spirit, cleared of all charges for madness and deadly diseases and made its big comeback in style.
