Best Smoothie Recipe Ever

0 comments | Posted by Alec Laughlin on
When I first adopted a predominantly plant-based diet I didn't foresee all of the positive effects it would have on my health. I discovered more sustained energy throughout the day, I found it much easier to put on and maintain lean muscle mass, workouts were amped up and recovery was noticeably accelerated, and I rarely catch a cold or flu anymore. But when I first began exploring this new diet, I realized that I still wasn't getting enough dark, green, leafy vegetables regularly and turned to my smoothie, a recipe I have been following every day for several years now, to ensure...

Here's to You, Dad

0 comments | Posted by Alec Laughlin on
At forty-two years of age—deeply dissatisfied with the rat race, the three hour commute, the performance of duties and responsibilities that didn't honor fully his passion—my father packed up his family, purchased a business, and moved us to a small rural community in the midwest, thus embracing his dream of being the publisher and editor of his own weekly newspaper. At the time I hadn't the capacity to understand the courage it took for him to make such a drastic change, nor the trust and faith my mother had in him to take the plunge by his side.  My father always taught his boys through...
