Hungry For More: October

It may only be the beginning of November, but winter is already dragging me down. The combination of the cold, darkness (and now snow!) make it so hard to stay motivated in the evenings. Nothing is worse than getting home from campus or work and trying to sit down to study when its already dark outside.¬†That ain’t my style. However, there is only another semester and a half left of my university career – the light at the end of the tunnel is near, my friends.

This past month, I came across so many fascinating articles! Not only were they interesting, but I came across a wide variety of topics this month – everything from food and nutrition, to green vehicles, to the benefits of smoking green, to hygiene and cleaning. That means there should be a little something for everyone, so I hope you find a few articles that spark your interest and expand your knowledge.

As always, let me know your questions and comments either below, here, or on Instagram or Twitter. Stay tuned for next week’s blog post, where I’ll be discussing intermittent fasting – this topic has been buzzing lately! I’ll be breaking down the evidence behind it, the various intermittent fasting “protocols”, and my personal experience with it.

 

Talk soon friends!
