Broaden Your Culinary Palate with Yelp

Word of mouth is much more more prevalent than you think, according to a book I’m currently reading called Contagious: Why Things Catch OnIt states that only 7% of word-of-mouth occurs online despite the growing popularity and usability of social media and the internet in general. While I often take my friends or families suggestions for different restaurant suggestions that I should try, there’s something about being able to search for exactly what I want in the exact location I’m going to be in. Unfortunately the only way to take care of that is with an app or website that has GPS capabilities. I’ve found the site I visit more than any other, when I’m searching for a place to eat, is Yelp. If you’re going to eat out, and you want to eat smart, then I’m going to show you why I suggest using Yelp.

Fuel Your Body With Live Superfoods

We’ve written about a few different resources for you to use to eat smartbut so far we haven’t really gotten outside of the world of supplements. A new site that I’ve recently discovered does have supplements, but I’m pretty partial to using Purformulas for any vitamins or minerals that I take. In the food world though, I’m always searching for alternatives to having to go to the grocery store especially if I can get a competitive price. The world of organic foods is naturally going to be much more expensive than if you’re just searching for canned tomato soup from your regular grocery store. While I haven’t found a great, local, vendor that can help supply me with my fresh local produce and meats, I am open to the idea of buying organic snacks online. Those prices tend to be much more consistent across the board regardless of the vendor. Live Superfoods has a great select of high quality superfoods to help you eat smart and fuel your body.

NOW Foods: A Health Junkies Dream

For over 45 years, a company has been led under the belief that good health is not a luxury that should only be available to the wealthy. The health food initiative has been brought more mainstream with the inclusion of the nation wide chain Whole Foods and the global craze for organic foods. Personally, having my tonsils removed in the 3rd grade and having my first visit to a Naturopathic Doctor to discover my various foods allergies, was the start of my health food store shopping initiative. Fortunately, more and more products and brands have come to market giving health conscious consumers more choices to higher quality products. One of the brands that I’ve been using intermittently, and more regularly since converting to the Paleo Diet, has been NOW Foods.

Regular Jane & Joe Fitness Guides From Bodybuilding.com

I’ve gone through hundreds of different workout plans and routines through various articles and information online. Often times, people get scared away when they hear the term ‘Bodybuilding’ because of the connotations it represents. You think of some really tan man or woman that eats like a twig or can bench 500 lbs on steroids with no ability to do anything functional except for walk across a stage. However, just like with marathon running, there’s a lot you can learn from the network of bodybuilders because they live, breath and eat working out. They’re constantly working on pushing their physical limits and are often times some of the top physical trainers and athletes in the world. Bodybuilding, in my mind at least, means exactly that; you’re building yourself the body you ultimately want to have. Since 2000, I’ve been going to Bodybuilding.com and leveraging them for their wealth of information about supplements and workouts. Even for a high school freshman pipsqueak like me I was able to start learning about various lifts, workout routines, proper diet and supplementation and could really dig in and get a comprehensive search for products. I’ll show you how I use Bodybuilding.com to workout and eat smart.
