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

Is This the End for Daily Harvest?

Daily Harvest took the superfood and health food industries by storm.  Every time you came across an ad in 2019-2020, it was for a Daily Harvest product.  Influencers and youtubers promoted Daily Harvest with all that was within them.  Some bragged how they loved the convenience of Daily Harvest and sold the masses on the idea that one could consume healthy food without having to do the work of sourcing and preparing it themselves. It was simple. Head right to the freezer, pull out a fonio grits bowl and dragonfuit smoothie and free up your time for other essential duties.   What Happened at Daily Harvest One thing is sure: Daily Harvest is a marketing force to be reckoned with.  They used various methods to market and won over a vast customer base which includes celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow and chef Bobby Flay.  Not only that, they managed to keep their customers and became so successful that they received a valuation between $1B-$10B.  Currently, the tides have changed.

It's World Vegan Day!!! Hip Hip Hooraaayyy!!

Happy World Vegan Day Folks! I was actually reflecting the other day on how glad I was that I stopped eating meat.  It’s really the best decision that I have ever made for myself.  Not only am I living a healthier life, I know that I'm also doing a whole lot of good for the planet.    The fact is that eating animals contributes greatly to the worsening climate crisis. Did you know that 15% of all greenhouse gas emissions are derived from animal emissions?  Going vegan or vegetarian is not only beneficial for overall health and well being but also for the health of our earth.  On this World Vegan Day, I’m appreciating all the vegans around the globe.    Now, you probably went vegan for different reasons.  Perhaps it was an “I just love animals and I don’t want to eat them” decision or maybe you went vegan for better health. Maybe you simply wanted to be trendy (that’s okay too) or maybe you’re rare and you just don’t like the taste of meat. Whatever the reasoning behind your decisio

What Kept Steve Jobs Powered to Create and Change the World

Image
It will be exactly 10 years since the death of Steve Jobs on October 5, 2011. Today, I’m remembering someone who I was fascinated with.  Steve Jobs was an iconic tech leader and businessman. Some would’ve described his approaches and beliefs as unorthodox while others would commend him for them. When pondering the question, “What is Apple?” in an interview with Time, Jobs stated:  “ Apple is about people who think outside the box, people who want to use computers to change the world, to help them create things that make a difference ."  He encouraged others to refrain from adhering to dogma and “living with the results of other people’s thinking.”  During his Stanford commencement speech he exclaimed, “ Don’t let the noise of other people’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. ” He was a firm believer in following one’s own heart and intuition. Steve Jobs was very particular about the way that he ran his company and this characteristic influenced his views about other domains

Summer Walker: “I believe in Herbal Healing.”

Image
After an article was posted on the Green News Guide regarding Summer Walker feeding her baby hemp and honey, she took to her Instagram live to speak about different topics including why she was feeding her baby a hemp, honey and mushroom mixture in the recent past.  Summer owes no one an explanation as to why she fed her baby the whole foods mixture but the reason she did so was very clear.  She mentioned that her baby had a situation or what possibly was a minor medical condition.   Obviously, she independently discovered foods and herbs that would help her baby and used them to aid in healing.  In her live, she stated that the herbal mixture she gave to the baby “worked” and cleared up the issue that she was having at the time.  She said it was a short-term natural remedy that she fed to her baby.  In the previous article, I stated that people were jumping to conclusions and making assumptions that were not based on facts.  I also stated that people shouldn’t be judged for diets that

Is Summer Walker Wrong for Feeding Her Baby Vegan Milk made with Hemp and Honey?

Image
Summer Walker recently came under fire when she posted a photo of her and her baby as well as a photo of products that she was feeding her baby.  The photo showed a picture of hemp seeds, raw honey, and mushroom powder.  It’s clear she was prepping the drink for her baby as there was a bottle next to the items.  Summer Walker innocently shared a photo of plant based nutrients seemingly wanting to show others that she is a health conscious mother who cares about the foods that she’s feeding her baby and I’m sure she was expecting a positive response from others but the opposite came running. A whole host of ignorant comments were suddenly then spewed towards Summer after she made her posts. One person criticized her in a tweet saying, “I just know Summer Walker not really feeding her baby seeds honey & shrooms. CPS go get that baby before I do it.”  Another ignorant comment stated: “Not y’all acting like people need to have kids to know it’s wrong for summer walker to feed her child
