The word “protein” is being added to tons of marketing materials and onto boxes that really don’t have a lot of protein grams, but because it’s a “buzz” word to big CPG brands it’s important to beware and know some of the best protein sources out there for your diet and meal ...

If you’ve never been to Austin, Texas I would suggest you add it to your bucket list as soon as possible.

Bottom Wisdom Tooth Removal - What to expect and the recovery

Category: Primary Menu    

My first piece of advice when it comes to having your wisdom teeth removed is to do it before you head to college. I wish that I would have had all four of my wisdom teeth removed when I was 18 years old, instead of waiting and doing them all sporadically over the course of 18-34 years old. When you are younger your teeth are not fully formed, and the removal of your wisdom teeth is much easier before you hit the age of 20. I would suggest having this done before your child (or you) heads off to ...
