Do I Really Have to Eat Breakfast?

by Brian Sabin | Van Winkle's

For years, we’ve been led to believe (or was it brainwashed?) that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Sacred. Next to godliness. The best thing for your health. The only way to lose weight and have a splendid day. End of story.

Freedom From Overdoing It at the Thanksgiving Table

Well, Thanksgiving is upon us again. For many, this is the official "kick off" to the holiday season. Thanksgiving is all about gathering with loved ones and sharing the reasons why we're thankful for all that we have in this life.

Staying mindful about your food consumption might be easy for you, but it is a challenge for many—especially during the holidays. We might be running from event to event, juggling work, school, family, exercise, and all of the other "to-do's" that the holidays bring.

Nourish and Thrive the Real Recipe for Success

Nourishment and nourishing the senses, nourishing the tissue, organs, skeleton and nerves – these are core competencies in Yoga and Ayurveda. But if we’re always detoxing, or dieting, or counting and limiting calories (or thinking we should) then we are not nourishing, we are depleting our bodies and brains. And if we eat junk food and packaged foods that boast flavor but lack nutrition, we may be temporarily satisfied, may even feel “full”, but we are still starving.

Portland, Oregon-based Flannel Guy ROI is a working dude and family man that likes flannel shirts and wants to achieve financial independence a little sooner than most, particularly by making smart spending decisions and living intentionally. 

His overall idea is to look at spending decisions as investments: what decisions will return the most value to you over time? 

Each scenario is evaluated over a 10-year horizon with the following summary statistics:

Present value – what is the total value of your investment and expected returns in today’s dollars?
Return on investment (ROI) – how much of your original investment will you make back?
Payback period – how long will it take you to recoup your original investment?

How to Master Mindful Eating

Mindful eating is more of an art than a science, but the practice is something that can change the way you think about what goes on your plate.

During a typical meal, we may pay attention to the first bite or two, which helps us recognize whether or not the food pleases the palate and meets our expectations. But after that, eating can become an unconscious activity that is just part of daily life—like tying shoelaces or checking the mailbox.

More Than a Feeling | Organic Really Is Better For You

Humans have practiced agriculture for thousands of years. The food that we produced over the millennia allowed for the expansion of culture and societies, the flourishing of arts and science. For the past 10,000 years the food that sustained human development had been cultivated with organic methods. It was only recently that large chemical companies such as Monsanto and DuPont took an interest in repurposing their technology in our fields. This departure from organic agriculture transpired a mere seven decades ago and has transformed food production into big business.

I'm Doing Everything Right, Why Am I Not Losing Weight?

Here’s the scenario. You’ve started going to the gym, working with a new trainer, or bought a fancy DVD workout that’s supposed to get you ripped in 90 days. You’ve been consistent in putting in the workouts, you feel a lot stronger, you have a lot more energy, but the pounds that you were hoping to lose haven’t come off. You ask yourself, “Why am I not losing weight?” Now what do you do?
