How to Get Iron on a Vegan Diet

On the whole, the vegan lifestyle can lead to several health benefits. Part of that is due to the influx of micronutrients so abundantly found in plants, the other part is due to the avoidance of animal-based foods which contain many harmful components such as cholesterol, trans and saturated fats, IGF-1, Neu5gc, and other foreign compounds.

Could this food movement kick-start your love of exercise?

“In my earlier 20s, I had a quite obsessive and controlling relationship with food and exercise,” says Tally.

While at drama school she wanted to be fit and healthy, but all the advice she found online focussed on cutting out foods and weight loss. “I went along with that information, and didn’t realise until it was too late, that I’d become obsessive.”

Tally realised she couldn’t continue along this path, which is when she discovered intuitive eating. “It put so many pieces into place. The framework makes you dissect and re-evaluate your relationship with food.”

New Zealand yoga industry suffers as anti-vax sentiment co-opts wellness community | New Zealand

Many know Wanaka, a picturesque tourist town at the foot of New Zealand’s Southern Alps, for its most famous tree.

The willow, which blooms uncannily from the glacial lake as if floating on water, represents different things for different people. For some, the miracles of a divine nature, for others, a marvel easily explained by science.

In the last several months another unlikely phenomenon has taken root among its residents.

Three weeks ago, in what many local patrons describe as a “sudden move,” three of the town’s four yoga studios simultaneously said their final namaste and closed their doors.

A Star-Studded Exercise in Mediocrity Aims for Netflix Success

We should point out right from the offset that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with gathering together an eclectic ensemble cast of recognizable names, lumping them together in a glossy action-packed blockbuster, and letting the sheer star power and charisma on display paper over the cracks.

In fact, it’s proven to be one of the industry’s most consistent subgenres for decades, so despite being completely unnecessary and ultimately forgettable, Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven proved popular enough among audiences, even though it brought absolutely nothing new or interesting to the table.

It isn’t a bad movie by any means, and there’s
