Getting Juiced in Columbus!

During a recent visit to the center of Ohio, in the capital of that fine state, Columbus, I had the opportunity to try their healthy offerings.  I was very impressed with the local organic juice shops that I had the chance to try.  The first was called “Native” and was located in an area of Columbus called “South Short”.  They had a nice storefront with … Continue reading Getting Juiced in Columbus!

Larabar worth a look (and Taste)!

I am not a big fan of most processed foods.  They usually contain a large amount of bad ingredients that our body has a hard time dealing with.  So I look very carefully at the ingredient lists on any product I buy.  Most of the time I just pass most commercialized products right by.  But recently while visiting the large (this may be an understatement) … Continue reading Larabar worth a look (and Taste)!

Kale Krunchy Kale Chips

I love kale chips if they are done right.  What I mean by right is probably a personal preference thing but I do not like Garlic or Onion so I prefer my Kale with more simple yet flavorful ingredients like Lemon and Nutritional Yeast (Nooch for the foody hipsters).  If you do not know what Kale Chips are they are basically Kale that is torn … Continue reading Kale Krunchy Kale Chips
