Do you think organic food is healthier? Why or why not? For the most part, I think organic food is a bit of a scam. I'd like to believe organic food is worth the extra cost, but an organic apple tastes pretty much like any other apple, at leas... Read more

This week's blog prompt: How do you find ways to fit exercise into your busy schedule? I'm not a morning person. I hate mornings and I'd prefer to sleep right through them. But... I also have a job and I have to be at work at 7am. That means I... Read more
