Coffee Tea?! My Coffee Secret

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

Water Taste Test Featuring Kangen, Fiji, Essentia, Smart Water, Dasani & Poland Spring

I’ve been wanting to complete a water taste test to compare water brands with Kangen alkaline water and finally decided I’d complete one today. The purpose was to see which brand has the best, purest and the smoothest taste.  Both premium and standard water brands were selected.  The water brands I selected are Fiji Artesian Water, Glaceau Smart Water   Alkaline , Essentia Water, Dasani purified water, and Poland Spring.     Just for some background, I drink Kangen Alkaline water religiously but if I’m out and about and do not have Kangen on hand, I’ll likely purchase Essentia or Fiji water.     The results that I received were not extremely shocking! Instead they confirmed my original thoughts about these various waters.     At first, I drank a small bit of each water starting with Poland Spring water, then Dasani, Essentia, Smart Water Alkaline and Fiji Water.   My sentiments about the taste and smoothness of each of the waters are below. Fiji Artesian Water   Fiji Water claims to h

Remembering Queen Elizabeth! Making her pancake recipe

One day after the last Green News Guide article was written, Queen Elizabeth II passed away peacefully on September the 8 th .  I always thought that the Queen would live past the age of 100 like her mother.  The Queen had been visibly getting more frail since the death of her husband. Even though we all know she was up there in age, it comes as a shock because she was just seen appointing the new Prime Minister Liz Truss two days prior.  It goes to show that nothing lasts forever  and what’s here today can be gone tomorrow.     Queen Elizabeth II was blessed to have the longest reign of all monarchs past and present. Yes, there were some negatives that happened as a result of the early British Empire but it’s important to focus on the positive especially considering that history cannot be changed.  If we can remember or learn anything from the queen, it should be her steadfast loyalty. The Queen was an exemplary model of real loyalty and faithfulness, characteristic which are truly ha

Man Quits Veganism after Ferocious Dog Bite 😱 !!

Mariano de la Canal was the victim of a dog attack that left him scarred for life! 34 year old de la Canal was a vegan influencer who regularly campaigned on behalf of animals and promoted veganism to his 454,000 instagram followers.  He was so committed to the lifestyle that he essentially gave up eating meat.  When discussing his original commitment to veganism he said:                          @marianodelacanal IG "I stopped being a vegan because a dog bit me, so I got angry and said: 'I'm campaigning for the animals, and then one of them comes and bites me,” he told Infobae. “That's when I stopped being a vegan." "The truth is that I campaigned for all that, veganism, vegetarianism, all that." He felt betrayed by the Animal Kingdom The date of Mariano’s attack is unknown but it really affected his views about his current lifestyle as a vegan.  He was hurt that this animal had carried out such a violent attack on him. In a bout of anger, Mariano swore
