  1. Why You Should Be Eating “Healthy” Cranberry Sauce All Year Long

    Most people would agree cranberry sauce is a decadent way to top off your plate on Thanksgiving or other holiday get-togethers. After all, that sweet, tart, pucker in your mouth sauce pairs just as well with Tofurky, stuffing, and potatoes as it does with apple or pumpkin pie or even Brussels sprouts. It has a magical way of making everything it touches taste just a little bit better. 

    But if you’re only eating it on holidays, you’re missing out on lots of essential health benefits of cranberries. Cranberry sauce is one of the healthiest foods you can eat, not only during the holidays, but all year long. Here’s why, and how to enjoy it all the way into next fall.

  2. Vegan Omega 3 Supplements & Sources: What Vegans Need to Know

    Omega 3 fatty acids have gained mainstream recognition for offering up an array of wellness-boosting effects, ranging from improving our mental health to protecting against cancer.

    With these stats, it's no wonder many of us have hopped on board the Omega 3 train and have made a conscious effort to add this nutrient to our diet and supplement routine. But while many of us have added these fatty acids into our daily nutrition routine, it's not uncommon to find an avid Omega 3 consumer who might not know much about them other than the fact that they're good for our health.

These are just a few questions that come to mind when considering this nutrient powerhouse, but those happen to be just the tip of the iceberg for those who follow a plant-based diet. Vegans and vegetarians also must consider whether their diet provides enough of these fatty acids, and if not, whether their supplement is both effective and in alignment with a plant-based lifestyle.

  8. The Best Vegan Multivitamin Doesn’t Come in a Pill

    Often, people trying a plant-based diet for the first time will rely on easy, but highly-processed, vegan food options since they tend to be slightly less intimidating than crafting a meat-free meal of their own.
