Eat This: Inflammation

Inflammation is a bit of a nebulous term that seems to get thrown around in relation to a bunch of health concerns, and really isn’t only what happens when you walk into the open bottom drawer in the kitchen or think you can get between the chair and desk but end up whacking your leg.

Eat This: Plant-Based Milks

Have you noticed how much the dairy aisle has changed? Gone are the days of the bags and cartons of only dairy milk, now goat milk is a staple as well as an abundance of milk that comes from plants. How can that be? Isn’t the most nutritious white stuff supposed to come from a cow or some other animal? I mean we even have buffalo milk cheese for goodness sake. That’s got to have […]
