    Curtis Harwell Discusses Do You Really Want To Be a Vegetarian?

    in Fitness

    To eat meat, or not to eat meat...This is the question on many people's mind. The negative impact of animal foods on health, the damage associated with animal foods and the environment, religious beliefs, and the desire to protect and respect animals are some of the reasons for the increase in the number of people consuming vegetarian diets. Many people express an interest in consuming a vegetarian diet but don't do so because they are unsure of how to do it or are not ready to give up meat. Fortunately, there are options and lots of great resources available to help. The key to making this diet work for you is to understand what nutrients you are missing from the foods that you are not consuming and to learn how to balance your meals without these foods.

    The Vegan Lifestyle w/ Brown Vegan

    in Vegetarian

    I am excited to have Monique from Brown Vegan coming on the show. Even though I became a vegetarian in 2013, I am now in a phase where I want to transition to becoming a vegan. Therefore, I wanted Monique to come on the show and share her journey. I found Monique on YouTube I believe last year. Her videos are great especially for those who are struggling with giving up certain foods where they can substitute them with other plant based options. I also enjoy the fact that she has a family which is helpful for those with children and/or a spouse. Yes, children can be vegan too! Of course I would suggest checking with a pediatrician and/or nutritionist as well, especially one who will be encouraging of this lifestyle with children (many of them promote meat and dairy diets). 


    The Bible speaks on how our bodies are the temples. I believe this also includes what we put inside of it. I do not believe that we should just put anything in our bodies, but to be conscious of what we are putting in it. This is not a show to force veganism down anyone's throats, but based on how the world is going, I strongly believe we should try to avoid and/or limit a lot of the foods we are used to eating.


    I hope this show will encourage those who are considering a vegan lifestyle or those who have already begun to embark on this journey. I am looking forward to learning about more options and ideas that Monique has. She has a lot of resources on her website as well, which I will place below.


    3 John 1:2 "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth."

    Paleo - Use Food to Heal Your Body & Gain Infinite Energy - Miriam Kwietniewska

    in Health

    A Paleo enthusiast for over two years, Miriam Kwietniewska found that this lifestyle  can result in feeling good all the time. Her frame of mind shifted to mindfulness - knowing what you are putting into your body and being aware of your thoughts.


    With her newfound lifestyle, Miriam wanted to give her loved ones an alternative to eating processed snack foods that were filled with high-fructose corn syrup and other toxins. Miriam used the Paleo-friendly ingredients from her pantry and made a delicious and nutritious mousse dessert. Her family and friends were instantly hooked. They called it "MUD" and Miriam and her partner formed The Paleo Factory in January 2015, to inspire others to be more mindful of what they eat.


    MUD is not only a dessert – it is a vision. MUD stands for Mindfulness Using Desserts. The Paleo Factory hopes to become a collaborative platform for a variety of Paleo-friendly companies who share a vision of inspiring mindfulness through food.


    In addition to The Paleo Factory, Miriam is currently using the Wahl’s Protocol to help heal her mother’s Multiple Sclerosis. Dr. Wahls’s radical health transformation has demonstrated that healing naturally through real food, meditation, and exercise is possible. Miriam hopes to spread the message of Dr. Wahl’s and her mother’s healing with the world.
