How to Live a Liberated Fear-free Life

How long could you eat—at home—before having to obtain food outside of your home? Just in case you’re asking, I do not consider myself a prepper—or a fear-monger, for that matter. It’s simply a pragmatic question. While this article may touch on a rather dark subject, I believe we benefit from looking at these kinds of realities face-on instead of… Read More

Freedom and Risk

In recent years, freedom has become a divisive term in this country. Increasingly, it’s your freedom against my freedom. Sort of like your truth and my truth. Have we forgotten that both truth and freedom are more than just words to be tossed about in whatever sense we wish them to be? I’m concerned that we’ve come to a warped… Read More

Beating the Baby Food Crisis

With headlines screaming of a shortage in baby formula, I can’t resist weighing in. I know this is one of the highly politicized stories of the day, but I’ll try to stay out of the political “weeds” surrounding this topic. Stick with me to the end and I’ll share a few resources. As always, there’s a high probability of there… Read More

First and foremost, the driver of a… Read More

How to Change the Food Culture

For the past several years, multi-national corporations have corrupted the once-local food sector with cheap unhealthy ingredients and mass-production of highly processed fare. Once upon a time this was only true in the conventional food arena, but as always, much wants more. As the organic sector garnered attention, the food giants of the world eyed it as a new frontier,… Read More

Fear Not

Reading or listening to the news these days is to tune in to a litany of uncertainties. From the inability to buy certain products to rising costs of necessities to potential food shortages to nasty division/hate. Truth is, “the news” seems to relish crisis, be it Covid, shortages of essentials, or war in Ukraine. Although I’ve already touched on some… Read More

The Importance of Water

Most of us share a common problem. That is, we don’t drink enough water. If you’re like me, you simply forget to drink water, especially when you’re busy. I’ve joked that my thirst mechanism doesn’t work, but all jokes aside, in recent years I’ve learned that’s actually true. If you lose the habit of not drinking regularly you become sub-clinically… Read More
