Thinking About Ditching Sugar? Here’s How You Can And Why You Should

No Comments | Written on July 27, 2018 at 10:45 am , by

Having a sweet tooth has always seemed like just another part of my identity. I end most of my days with chocolate or ice cream (or both), I enjoy baking and I always reach for sweet over salty snacks. I go through most days with sugar on my mind, and I never thought about what I was doing to my body by doing so.

No Comments | Written on October 13, 2017 at 10:45 am , by

For the past year or two, almond milk and other alternatives to dairy milk have been on the rise.

So, I started googling and came upon the LifeSpan Fitness Treadmill Desks.  Could a treadmill desk be a tool for food writers and bloggers like myself?  Could it be the solution to anyone who spends a significant portion of their work day behind a computer screen?  I decided to check it out for myself.
