Vegetarian? Vegan? Eco-Conscious? READ.

I found this article while working on an essay about eco-conscious eating and the facts are laid out in an easy to read manner with no fluff. Check out the shocking data....


Who doesn't love some chocolate....these are some healthy chocolates that are made beautifully and with a lot of consciousness, so indulge. Help yourself to a late easter chocolate?

One of my all time favorites...they have a chocolate for everything and with beautiful herbs and intentions put into each. The ingredients in all of the gnosis treats are truly amazing and supreme quality.
I have only had the Chocolate Maca Chunk bar, and it is DELICIOUS. I also like that they use coconut sugar, which is extremely low glycemic, instead of agave nectar.
I specifically linked this to the chipotle bon bons, because I have a thing for chipotle seasoning, and so want to try this!!
"we strive to be green and sustainable where ever possible. We'll be the first to admit we're not perfect. From the big issues, like fairtrade and carbon foot prints, down to using energy efficient light bulbs, we're learning to be greener all the time."

These are not raw and not just a chocolate bar, it is a greens food. I love these bars even though they are not raw. They are a great snack or meal replacement because they give you greens as well as give you your chocolate fix. They also use ayurvedic herbs and a lot of the ingredients are cold pressed. It is also alkaline forming.

I have also had Righteously Raw, which is good, but more mass produced I feel. There doesn't seem to be as much of a my friend made this feel. The Raw Chocolate Company also has some yummy sounding ones, but I have never had any of it. It also seems more commercial.


I think this website is awesome and something I need to spend a little time with. If you have injuries, or just enjoy running a lot, maybe you should too!

Active at any age.

Check out this 91 year old track star. This is so inspirational and awesome. You can start a new hobby or activity at any time in life. Now, I need to stop saying that I am too old to start ballet or gymnastics and just do it!
