If you are looking for the perfect way to start the season off right, take a trek just south of town to the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge and treat yourself to a hike around this gorgeous park.

Cascades Park has added something to this city that is rather hard to convey with words. But when you’re out there, you can see and feel it. Kids of all ages running around, laughing and squealing with delight; a passing stranger flashing you a warm smile as they walk their dog; families and individuals on blankets dotting the grassy hill enjoying a picnic or...

If you shop at New Leaf Market Co-op, you are probably conscious about what you eat. Do the animals you love deserve anything less?

A gazillion brands of pet food—canned, dry and moist—fill the shelves of our local chain supermarkets, providing us with as many head-spinning choices as we are faced with on the human breakfast cereal aisle.

Slick Madison Avenue marketers spin out TV commercials and magazine ads that would have us believe commercially prepared pet foods, like Purina, will provide our beloved pets with a “carefully balanced, natural” diet.

Healthy food has always been, and always will be, at the core of a healthy way of life. For many people, this means shifting away from hormone-containing, pesticide-laden conventional foods, toward sustainably-produced foods. This demand has resulted in a myriad of products that boast either an “organic” or “all-natural” label. But are the two labels interchangeable? Not as much as you may think.

There are several... Read more

If you are trying to eat a whole foods, plant based diet, planning a future trip to Walt Disney World might urge you to call this magical place the “land of many temptations”. French fries, soda, sugary treats. Just one whiff of a fresh batch of artificial butter popcorn is enough to make any health nut want to cave! While treating yourself to an indulgence every once in a while won’t do any harm, one or more days full of theme park food loaded with fat, sugar and artificial chemicals can leave you feeling drained instead of dreamy. My biggest tip for keeping fueled... Read more

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has grown in popularity since it first appeared 25 years ago. It’s an innovative way of linking consumers with growers, providing consumers an opportunity to buy local, seasonal food directly from farmers. Basically, farmers offer a number of “shares” to the public.  “Shares” take the form of produce and occasionally other products like honey or fresh baked bread. Interested consumers purchase a share and receive a weekly supply of seasonal produce throughout the growing season.

“Milk, it does a body good” - a saying most of us are all too familiar with. This was one of the first things that came to mind when I hopped aboard the vegan train 8 years ago. “But what about [insert random nutrient I assumed could only come from animal based foods - in this case,... Read more

In the 19th century, Mark Twain said, “Part of the secret to success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.” Today, however, heartburn is one of the two most common complaints doctors get (the other is constipation) and cases of a resulting type of esophageal cancer rose six fold, between 1975 and 2001, according to studies by the National Institutes of Health...

I’ll admit. I’ve never been much of a tea drinker and have always prefered to get my caffeine fix through a big ol’ sugary, creamy cup of Joe. Recently, though, I have found myself putting on kettle after kettle of water for a piping hot pot of tea. I blame it entirely on my obsession with BBC shows in which characters are more often than not... Read more
