Why Dark Leafy Greens are Awesome

Leafy-Greens

Dark leafy greens are among the most nutrient rich foods on the planet. Relative to the amount of calories they contain, they contain a very high number of micronutrients. Some of the most notable nutrients are iron, calcium, folate, vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin K1. Dark leafy greens are sources of Omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants.

Breaking news: The D.C. Appeals Court just killed Net Neutrality.

This could be the end of the Internet as we know it. But it doesn’t have to be. 

Tell the FCC to restore Net Neutrality: http://bit.ly/1iOOjoe

they want to make the internet like tv. with channels and paying to get to specific websites and things. net neutrality = not doing that

This impacts every internet user. Please signal boost the hell out of this and sign the petition if you are American

I do not reblog things like this very often, but this affects me both personally and my business as a freelance artist.

In the economy here; cash is already strapped as it is. You bet your ass companies would suck the ever living life out of misc. art sites.

I don’t want it to ever come down to me choosing between groceries or purchasing a new tier package via comcast to be able to access tumblr or DeviantArt (let alone not guaranteeing I’ll even be seen by my customer base since they may not want to pay out their asses either). It doesn’t seem important to most, but I do 90% of my business online entirely.

Please sign up, fight for this and share it with your followers/friends/family and urge them to give them hell as well.

Not writing related, but this is incredibly important. While we pay for service via ISPs, the internet has been a relatively free space where everyone, no matter their income level, is able to connect, access a wealth of information, and express themselves. The Internet has become a major part of our culture as human beings and the notion that ISPs might be able to limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more is utterly sickening. A lot of us are cash strapped as is, and I’d rather not be limited even more by someone else’s greed. Net Neutrality is essential and I hope you guys will understand why it needs to remain.

P.S. Signal boost this if you’re able.

How to Eat Healthy When You Crave Intensity

1

During my fat days, one of the reasons I struggled to lose weight was because what I considered diet foods were boring, bland and unsatisfying. While I often experience sensory overload, I also crave (controlled) intensity. This shows itself in preferring complex music, loving colorful environments and craving very flavorful foods. During the time when my weight was the most out-of-hand, I was…

Is Caffeine Healthy?

http://wp.me/p4q97J-fP

coffee

Coffee is more than just a morning pick-me-up for me. It is the nectar of the gods. It takes a lot of trial-and-error to find just the right cup. It has to be the right blend, from acceptable sources, brewed to perfection. Or I can get the caffeinated liquid candy from Starbucks. 

Caffeine is the drug of choice in our culture. About 90% of Americans consume caffeine daily and about half consume…

Nutritional Upgrade: PB & J

Nutritional Upgrade: PB & J

Peanut butter and jelly is one of the most popular basic sandwiches. While it is delicious, it is basically a candy bar. Not to mention, the most popular peanut butter, jellies and breads are high in added sugar and contain toxic ingredients. I decided to give this a nutritional upgrade to something that is a little more useful to your body.

Study Finds Not All DNA from GMOs Can Be Broken Down

A new study found indications that some DNA from GMOs may not be broken down by the
body during digestion. The parts that were not broken down were shown to be released into the bloodstream.

These findings contradict claims made by Monsanto that DNA from GMOs are “extensively digested” and “present no hazards”

The presence of these genes was associated with inflammatory bowel disease, adenoma…
