Some people grow food only for their own personal consumption.

They always have something in their houses to serve guests. A modern average Ukrainian family has two parents and usually one or […]

A Greeting card is just a small piece of paper printed or hand painted or handcrafted with printed or handwritten message to convey your feelings to someone. Nowadays there are so many ways we can express ourselves, our feelings to someone such as a SMS, an email massage, an ecard, a fax message or just a telephone/cell phone.

Is it better to eat 1/2 hour before a workout? An hour before a workout? Do not eat? Yes, eat. Eat what? When? As Personal Trainers, we get these questions all the time. To answer them properly, one would need to ask a lot of questions about the habits of the person seeking the advice. Often, the client needs to be educated in nutrition and their eating habits. This can be challenging. Most people would not be able to intelligently break down the percentages of macro nutrients (carbohydrates, fats and proteins) and their amounts. Therefore, they could only make visual examples of how much food they consumed and attempt to paint a mental picture of what the foods looked like. Even if they've prepared the food themselves, they would not be able to assess the caloric value of sauces and spices of the meal either. Even educated ones without a […]

Several years ago, there were only a handful of vegan cookbooks. Today, there are dozens, and I recently learned there are 200 new vegan cookbooks on the way! Great news, unless you are deciding which cookbook to add to your library. Fortunately for me, I did not have to choose, as I received a hardcopy version of Crazy Sexy Kitchen as a gift. With the subtitle "150 Plant-Empowered recipes to ignite a mouthwatering revolution" – and avoiding the word "vegan" – Crazy Sexy Kitchen educates us about the many benefits of plant-based diets (for animals, the environment, and health) And declares that any step towards a "plant-passionate diet" and away from the Standard American Diet is a positive one. Although some may believe giving cookbooks titillating titles is a marketing gimmick, the approach of co-authors Kris Carr (of "Crazy Sexy Cancer") and Chef Chad Sarno is sure to appeal to […]
