Holiday Gift Guide 2015 - Top Present Picks

Category: Primary Menu    

One of the things I try to do really well during the entire year is to make mental notes of everything that my friends and family say in relation to “Oh I really could use/I would really love to get ___.” That to me is the only way I can really buy anyone something I know they will love. It’s important to me to get things that are either really needed or something they really want, otherwise it is one big crap shoot getting something random. I also real ...

Remembering to take your vitamins and supplements

Category: Primary Menu     Fitness    

I am a big believer and advocate for taking vitamins and supplements daily as part of my routine, but when I have conversations with family or friends about their health many of them tell me “I would take vitamins but I can never remember to take them.” I know that it takes some time to get into a habit of taking your daily dose, but for me it is just one thing I have never had a problem remembering to do. It is a concrete part of my morning routine, just like brushing my teeth or was ...

Why I will never give up red wine and switched to organic

Category: Primary Menu    

Sometimes the only thing that gets me through a busy, stressful, long day is knowing that there is a glass of delicious red wine waiting at home with my name on it. In my 20’s all of my girlfriend drank white wine, but now the smell, look or taste of Pinot Grigio makes me gag. I switched to red wine years ago when I realized how different white wine was versus red wine. For many the preference is based on taste and I myself prefer red due to its fully bodied flavor. I also like that red win ...
