1 comment

Meditation? Not your forte?  Not even just 10 simple minutes of meditation? Is improving quality of life and not dying early your forte?  I thought it might be, so let’s chat about meditation. All I am asking for is 10 minutes here. Speaking of minutes, there are approximately 1,440 minutes in a day, 10,080 in a week, over 40,000 in a month, and 525,600 in a year.  Now that’s a lot of time!  Or at least it sounds that way.

The 2018 Mushroom Superfood Supplements Guide

Mushrooms are Unique Little Superfoods: Mushrooms are not plants, nor are they animals. In fact, mushrooms are within their very own kingdom known as Fungi. They appear to grow like plants, yet lack the many key components of plants such as roots, seeds, chlorophyll, and the ability to produce their own food. Like animals, they consume their food, but not by grazing or hunting. They break down organic matter, similar to bacteria. This action helps to recycle nutrients in the natural system.
