There’s no doubt about it: more and more individuals all over the world are going vegan. But what does ‘vegan’ mean, specifically? Simply put, a vegan avoids all animal products; they do not eat any animals for food or use any animal products whatsoever. What they do love, however, are delicious, nutritious plant based proteins!
Clearly, this is a lifestyle that is here to stay. Just think about the facts: in the United States in the last three years, there has been an astonishing 600% increase in the number of vegans. And all these folks are adopting this lifestyle choice of plant based proteins instead of traditional meat products.
A lifestyle choice is one thing, but how does this lifestyle choice impact their choices in the kitchen? If vegans do not consume anything animal-related, what do they eat? Can they be satisfied with meat substitutes? Why would they want to give up so many delicious foods?
The wonderful, exciting answer is that they do not have to give up de (more…)

All too often when you walk into the break room after long day you find a pot of coffee that’s probably cold as ice or is nearly empty. By the time you get everything situated and make another pot your break is over and it is time to go back to the daily grind of work – without your needed cup of coffee. This situation would frustrate anyone who so badly needed that single cup of coffee to continue on with their busy day without giving the rest of their coworkers any strife.

This is why a single cup coffee machine for the office could be one of your best investments for both you and the rest of the workers who scramble for a fresh cup daily.
Over half of Americans drink some type of coffee every day, 54% of Americans to be exact! A (more…)

Honey bees are certainly amazing animals. Known to fly at speeds of up to 15 miles per hour, these animals are also incredibly busy. One important task that bees carry out is known as pollination. It’s this same pollination that helps at least 30% of crops and 90% of wild plants continue to thrive. That being said, it’s perfectly understandable to wonder how bee pollen can help you. In this post, you’ll learn about four important organic bee pollen benefits.
How Bee Pollen is Produced
In order to collect pollen, bees need to gather these materials from plants. After collecting this material form plants, honey bees mix this material with their own secretions.

What can you do with reclaimed wood? There’s definitely plenty of it going around and it’s not hard to find. Close to a third of all waste that is produced by construction and demolition is wood. Since the year 1900, the United States has milled over 3 trillion board feet of wood, so there’s more than enough reclaimed spruce and other types of reclaimed wood. There is no need to use new wood for many applications.
