It can be difficult to eat healthy while traveling. Skip the roadside restaurants, but instead bring your own food. Pack your cooler with fruits and vegetables, crackers, yogurt, granola bars and cheese. These things are easy to pack, and easy to eat while on the road. Don’t forget the water, it will help you stay hydrated as you drive. Ditch the fanny pack. Not only do you look the part of a tourist, a fanny pack is often easy pickings for a thief. If you crave the convenience of the fanny pack, consider getting a multi-pocket travel vest instead. These carry just as much but keep the items close to your body where they are safer. Did you know that you can use snow to do a quick cleanup on your vehicle while you are traveling? A car wash would work better but snow works quite well in a pinch. […]

For detoxifying your body and reversing disease, there is no better method than fasting. According to the Fasting Diet, you need to fast because of the increased pesticides, fungicides, toxins, and antibiotics in our food and water supply. The Fasting Diet suggests that you should view fast as a state of enhanced repair, rejuvenation, and healing rather than as a way of starving or depriving yourself of food. It claims that you spare your body all the work it needs to digest food when you consume only fresh vegetable juices. You can use this extra energy for more important processes like repairing and maintaining tissues. This program recommends that you undertake two juice fasts each year (spring and fall). You can then expect to experience an increase in energy, reduction of stress, and an enhanced sense of smell. You can count on this if you eat strictly fruits and vegetables […]

Do not Focus on a Single Aspect of Food Storage You have heard of 'do not put all your eggs in one basket'. This adage applies to long-term food storage as well. It pays to be divers in your food storage. Emergencies and disasters come in all types and varieties and so should your food preps. Some emergencies will leave you with good shelter and utilities. Others will leave you homeless and without any way to prepare meals. Unfortunately, you must plan for both of these and more. Being diverse with your food preps will allow you to conquer any emergency or disaster that comes along. Here are some ways that you can diversify your long-term food storage. Storing Bulk Foods You do need to have bulk foods such as rice, flour, beans and other grains. These store very well in larger containers and keep for years. They are inexpensive […]

Affiliate marketing is a great way to earn an online income. But because it’s so popular, there are countless numbers of affiliates around competing for customers. So you need to set yourself apart and get prospects to click your affiliate links. You can do this by producing a legitimate affiliate product review. Let people know the truth about the products that you are promoting.There’s a significant difference between somebody who’ll market anything to anyone and someone who values their reputation enough to make sure they only recommend the best products for their audience. Affiliate Product Review Template 1. Buy The Product Yourself Before you can give a genuine affiliate product review, you have to have a full understanding of that product. There are too many review sites online where affiliate markers have never even come into contact with the product or service they are promoting. If you don’t want to […]

In this interview, Brenda Cobb shares on living foods, the reasons people get sick and how they can heal. Kevin: Sure. When you talk about illness and you talk about people who have disease and who can heal themselves, it's more than just food … Brenda:: It really is. I believe that it's much more than the food. The way we describe raw food and living food is raw food we believe fruits, vegetables and not seeds that have not been cooked. We believe a living food is a sprouted food, something that's growing when you eat it. Among bean and lentil sprout and sun flower, and buckwheat sprout. And so, that certainly is a part of the program. But we believe there is really four main reasons that people get sick. The number one reason we believed is because of how people think and emotional stuff sometimes that has […]

Athletes are constantly bombarded with information on how to improve their physique, build muscle and increase endurance. The majority of this comes from books, magazines, and radio and TV ads that promote various "ergogenic aids" – substances that supposedly increase vitality and improve performance. Unfortunately, most of the promises made for these products are baseless. Investigations made by David Lightsey, an exercise physiologist and nutritionist-member of the National Council Against Health Fraud Inc. Showed that not a single company in the United States that markets ergogenic aids could support its contents. In four years, Lightsey called up more than 80 companies asking for scientific proof or written documentation to back up the fitness-related claims of their products. What he received did not convince him. "Fewer than half sent anything. Most of the studies they sent were poorly designed and proved nothing. The few that were well-designed did not support product […]

Dependence on fast foods to grow taller goes back thousands of years ago. In the Roman forum more than two thousand years ago, urban consumers ate sausages and honey cakes. The Chinese ate stuffed buns in the twelfth century. Five hundred years ago, Spaniards encountered tacos in the markets of today’s Mexico. Fast food has been part of American food culture to grow taller for many more years than most people realize. If your great-grandparents traveled by train in the early 1900s, they likely devoured “fast food,” or quick meals, from the dining car. When the automobile took over, the dining-car concept was reinvented as fast-food restaurants, dotting the roadside. Eating in the car isn’t new; the popular “drive-in” restaurant of the 1950s evolved into the “drive-through” window. How to feel comfortable when you dine alone? Any discomfort from eating alone shouldn’t make you skip a meal or you won’t […]

Dog food has certainly progressed in recent years with a lot more science behind it all than ever before and this can largely be seen in the various adverts and marketing materials produced by the dog food manufacturers that all claim that their product is the best. The truth of the matter is that there are various dog food secrets that you really should know about and Dog Food Secrets Review written by Andrew Lewis is a book that aims to tell you the truth about what really goes on in the pet food industry.

My specialty in food and wine has always been in the European gastronomy. That is why when I travel to Europe, I make sure to get a taste of every regional cuisine and specialty. I have been passionate about the regional dishes of France and Italy in particular, and that is one of the reasons I studied at the Cordon Bleu culinary school in Paris. As a food and wine consultant and working with tour companies I have come to a conclusion that a tour to Europe that is organized around food and wine is much more valuable. Many authentic regional dishes, especially from France and Italy represent the local cuisine and are part of the culture. Visiting Europe on a tour, to get the maximum benefit, in many ways, your best choice would be a food and wine tour or tours that emphasize on regional gastronomy. This way, you […]

In the field of culinary arts, one of the keys to success is in knowing how to combine wine with food. High-end restaurants and hotels often hire sommeliers whose main job is to understand the very best combinations for the customers. For those with keen taste buds, a good meal can be disaster if the food and wine combination is wrong. Of course, a chef or a sommelier will know how to do this since their professions require that knowledge, but for the average person it may not be so readily apparent. If this is the case for you then the following basic guidelines may be of help: The food should not overpower the wine, but the reverse is also true, the wine should not overpower the food; a balance is the best solution. Avoid pairing strong with delicate. There is the oft-repeated mantra–red wine for red meat, white wine […]
