So for many going paleo/primal, raw, vegan, vegetarian or any other diet improvement can lead to a list of no items. And while certain foods (can we even call them foods???) should be on the no list forever (since man was never intended to consume such items) there are some of your old favorites you should be happy to know that can be re-created in a tasty and healthy format.

Do you use protein powder?
I know some blogs don’t recommend protein powder because of the following for the most part:
- they feel most people can get enough protein through diet
- they feel most people aren’t active enough to need the extra protein
- or they feel that regardless of the ingredients no protein powder is 100% natural because man creates it (even if the ingredients are 100% natural you don’t see protein powder growing on a plant, tree or from the ground)
And that’s okay people have lived for many years without protein powder however, if your someone who does use protein powder here are a few key things to pay attention to and my review below of Vega One and Vega Sport below. Continue reading

If you find yourself struggling to get to sleep at night tossing and turning then here is the several ways to effectively tackle your sleepless nights.
First, the key if possible (I say possible because not everyone works a 9-5 job, many work rotating shifts, nights and split shifts, e.g. doctors, nurses, dispatch, paramedics, police officers, etc.) is to sleep between the hours of 10 or 11 pm and then get 6-8 hours sleep (this varies with each person slightly.) The body effectively does its best regeneration between 10pm and 2am.
In fact Dr. Samvat a highly sought after Australian doctor reveals “that every 1/2 hour of sleep before midnight equals 2 hours of sleep after midnight.
Most people are dehydrated, I mean chronically dehydrated day in and day out. Its amazing to me how these people go on without realizing the side affects of dehydration and there are plenty!
My body personally is so used to me drinking water that I wouldn’t think of doing half the activities most do without my water bottle nearby. I live near a nature trail and I see so many people I see running without any water with them. I also adjust my drinking for particular circumstances (such as exercising or traveling.) Our bodies NEED water.
Look at how water makes up a great portion of our organs:
The brain and heart are 73% water, lungs +/- 83% water, the skin is 64% water, muscles and kidneys are 79% water and your body’s bones are 31% – According to H.H. Mitchell, Journal of Biological Chemistry 158
