Coffee Tea?! My Coffee Secret

Image
NCDT (National Coffee Data Trends) have reported that as much as 67% of Americans drink coffee on a daily basis.  That amount increases to 75% when determining the amount of adults who drink coffee on a weekly basis.  One lesser know fact is that the global coffee market is expected to reach 182 billion by the year 2030.  What is it about that little dark bean, available in so many varieties, that cause people to be unable to go about their daily lives without it?  It must be the flavor as some people swear by coffees made in various countries.  If it's not Columbian or Jamaican coffee, some will not even touch the mug.  Then there are the coffee chain fan clubs who must have their daily Starbucks or Tim Horton's signature espresso in the morning.  Let's be real, the taste of coffee isn't all it's cracked up to be, especially when dark.  Quite possibly, it may be the alertness that coffee provides after consumption which have some people hooked.   The alertness and

Over twenty oat based cereals and snack products were tested and almost all contained levels higher than EWG’s health and safety benchmark. EWG’s safety benchmark is 160 ppb (parts per billion). Anything above this number is considered to be toxic and dangerous if consumed. Honey Nut Cheerios had an astounding number of 833 ppb of glyphosate, while Nature’s Valley Granola bars contained 566 ppb level. The World Health Organization has classified glyphosate as carcinogenic to human beings. California’s Office of Environmental He

Why would a person who has specifically eliminated meat from their diet want to attend any event where consumption of meat is the entire point of the event? Vegans and vegetarians usually choose to go meat and dairy free for various reasons. For some it may have been awareness of the animal cruelty that goes on in the meat and dairy industries. For others, the reason might have been knowledge of the dangers of consumption of animal products. For some it’s the taste and for others it could be the smell that’s intolerable. The fact is that there are different reasons why vegans become vegans and vegetarians become vegetarians. It shouldn’t be a surprise if your vegan friend or family member is not at your next dinne
