How to make Homemade Meat Protein Bars

I am constantly recommending protein/fat meat bars to followers of the Power Foods Lifestyle as a high quality, gluten-free and dairy-free option. Some of the companies* I recommend are very high quality, and I love them! But as I look at my grocery bill, these are the highest ticket items that my husband I felt we could look at cutting. Nate’s ingenuity and curiosity at creation (we are a good pair!) landed us this dehydrator and a desire to give it a shot! In all honesty, I was initially skeptical. I didn’t think this was a good idea, and was just going to put another product in the cupboard that would take up space. (We all have those, right?). So when he pulled out the dehydrator and some of the groceries we bought last night, I groaned inside. I thought, now this is just going to make a mess and take...

Why Grass-Fed Beef Is Superior to Conventional Beef (STOP Buying It)

“Beef. It’s what’s for dinner . . . ” (here’s what they didn’t tell us). . . Without a doubt, grass-fed beef is growing in popularity due to not only taste, but proper education. In 2013, retail sales of grass-fed beef clocked in at over $400 million, which was staggering compared to only $5 million in sales in 1998.   Eating beef once per day in at the main meal (dinner) is what we were told for years during the American advertising campaign, paid for by the Beef Checkoff Program.

Holiday Gift Giving Guide for Body Buddies and the Health Conscious

Tis the season for gifting, so here’s what I’ll do I’ll list all my favorites for my health-minded crew! I’ll show pics and link them to where you can buy– on Amazon (where else) since Prime is so fly! Christmas is most definitely a wonderful time of year, though I’ll be honest–I will take the summer and the beach any day! As I get older each year (don’t we all, haha), I think life and seasons are truly about enjoying all times of the year and living in the present. When we stop  looking to tomorrow for pleasure and we stop reliving the past to conjure up memories of days gone by, we get to experience true bliss and presence. So as of right now, I’m HAPPY to be in December, to have fresh snow on the lawn, to be walking over icy crystals on the front walk and the...
