Have you ever gotten high off of endorphins as a result of exercise? It is awesome! Exercise not only helps you physically but also mentally!

Help You and the Planet with Your Nutrition…and a Note on Sugar
For over a couple years I have been primarily vegetarian with the exception of fish and insects. So I guess that’s what, entopescotarian?

I don’t know why. But when it comes to procrastinating with your health, the time to start is today. Not tomorrow, […]
