The Mighty Mangosteen Bowl

There are so many trends going on in the health world right now, and Acai bowls are becoming more popular than ever before. Basically every smoothie/juice joint has at least a few acai bowls on the menu, and rightfully so. The acai berries’ flavor is one of a dark-berry-chocolaty-goodness that packs an array of health benefits. But today, I want to share with you my favorite super food that has yet reached “Acai Bowl” status- the Mangosteen.

Mangosteen is often referred to as the “Queen” of tropical fruits, particularly in the South-East Asian regions. And if you’ve ever had a fresh mangosteen, you’ll know just why it’s called the QUEEN.

Comet Swift Tuttle

During these cool summer nights, in the dark corners of a crisp midnight sky- you’ll find a billion of reasons why August is a perfect month to be stargazing. The month of August is a host to a multitude of celestial events. We just had the glorious Blue Moon a few days ago, and now have a chance to observe the finest light show of the year- the Perseid Meteor shower. Visible Worldwide, the 2015 Perseid Meteor shower can be viewed on the mornings of August 11-14th. Under the dark, cool summer nights- one might be able to see 50 or more meteors per hour (depending on light pollution).The Perseid Meteor shower is produced by comet Swift-Tuttle, which was discovered in 1862. As it orbits the Sun, this big “dirty snowball” sheds tiny grains of rock and dust. Over time, the particles spread out along the comet’s orbital path. Earth flies through this path every August, sweeping up some of the dust grains. They plunge into our atmosphere at more than 100,000 miles per hour, vaporizing as the streaks of light known as meteors.

Meatless Mondays- Changing America’s Diet

Over 56 billion farmed animals are killed every year by humans. More than 3,000 animals die every second in slaughterhouses around the world.

Good news is that 400 Million fewer animals were killed for food last year vs. 2007 because people are eating less meat. In fact, meat consumption has been steadily declining in the U.S- by 10% per capita since 2007. Paul Shapiro, Vice President of the Farm Animal Protection for the Humane Society of the United States explains that

 “Compared to 2007, last year almost half a billion fewer animals were subjected to the torment of factory farming and industrial slaughter plants–and that’s despite the increase in the U.S. population.”

Rising awareness of vegetarianism & veganism , veg-friendly marketing campaigns, delicious meat and dairy replacements and the acclivitous rise in awareness that cutting back on animal products can directly improve health, have all contributed to the decline of meat consumption.
