The Price We Pay for Eating Unhealthy

There has been much discussion of late about the high cost of eating healthy. We see articles that recommend purchasing only the “dirty dozen” organic foods: peaches, strawberries, nectarines, apples, spinach, celery, pears, sweet bell peppers, cherries, potatoes, lettuce, and imported grapes. Others suggest growing your own organic produce. Eating less meat and more rice and beans has always been sage advice to save money. Some call for simply eating less. Whatever the call to action, we have yet to see someone explore the real cost of eating unhealthy. So we decided to look at some of the costs of...

Exercise burnout can be described as the gradual depletion of energy as a result of overtraining or failing to change a workout routine.

Fatso Hybrid Peanut Butter

Peanut butter isn’t just for school lunches. This versatile spread is surprisingly good for your health. The high protein and healthy oils help with weight loss, diabetes and even Alzheimer’s disease. For those of you who are not getting enough "healthy fats" in your diet, the fat in peanut butter is heart-healthy monounsaturated fat.

Why Peter Parker got distressed with Monster alien companion?

Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, Hollywood has been forced to play musical chairs with its blockbuster release dates for more than a year. Daniel Craig’s No Time to Die has been delayed five total times, MGM’s F9 has shifted release dates six separate times, and Marvel’s Black Widow finally settled on a firm summer release date after three schedule hops. The less said about the release data drama surrounding Tenet and Wonder Woman 1984 last year, the better. Each delay can cost studios millions of dollars in marketing while putting further strain on the release schedule. But with the majority...

Why Did Miles Morales conquire Gwen Stacy with absolute blast?

Spider-Man is one of Marvel's most popular heroes, and it's for good reason.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales has already begun branching out by adding villains like The Tinkerer, so it's likely that the...
