Review: True Vitality Plant Protein Shake

true vitality

My to-do list for the day read like this:

1). Call Mom
2). Remember to take out the trash
3). Do laundry
4). Write review for the True Vitality Meal Powder

My room’s still a mess, but luckily for you guys I managed to get around to #4 on my list.

(And I did manage to send mom an e-mail).

And about True Vitality?

Vegan. Probiotic. Inexpensive.

And algae oils…….oh, algae oils!

When Folic Acid Kills

If you’re a kid, geezer, pregnant, slob or lush you probably drink folic acid from a fire hose without realizing it.

And hey, in a lot of ways…..this is all fine and dandy.

It prevents us from ending up with birth defects that give us the lumbar system of Quasimodo. I like that.

However, the machinery our bodies use to process folic acid are often overtaxed, leaving a lot of the unmodified stuff floating around in our blood.

Is it possible we have too much of a good thing?

The Contact Form Was Broken. I Didn’t Notice.


My head is full of hot, hot air.

For the last six weeks we’ve been forwarding all e-mail messages sent through our contact form to a phantom e-mail address.


That didn’t work out well. At least for you guys.

I on the other hand, have had an easy 42 days.

I was wondering why everyone all of a sudden stopped having problems.

Of course my big ego led me to believe that I was just doing an awesome job at being MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE.

As usual with these things, I was deeply mistaken.

Cripes, I’m sorry :(

Kutting to the Truth About Vitamin K


What kan vitamin K do for your body?

Since about 1950 the answer was pretty simple: IT CLOTS YOUR BLOOD.

However, recently there have been new revelations about other benefits.

And in particular, there might be a few other mysterious forms of the vitamin that have remarkable potency within the body.

As it turns out vitamin K has not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, not 5, not even 6 forms of itself but 12 DIFFERENT FORMS OF THE VITAMIN.


And the majority of these come in the form of K2. Aka K-Kooooooool.

What it can it do for you and why is it unique?

Kome, let’s find out.

The Inigo Montoya Guide to Whole Food Vitamins

whole food vitamin

The idea that we can boil down fruits and vegetables into a single pill to get all our daily nutrients is almost Santa-Claus like in the way it seems to get us something from nothing.

I mean, even if you’re stone broke you can probably rummage your glove department and shake the couch for the $20 needed for a 30 day supply.

A heck of a lot cheaper than going to the grocery store!

But alas, sadly, I think many folks (including many who position themselves as experts in the supplement industry) are just a lil’ confused about how these actually work.

Alas, when we talk about whole food vitamins there’s an important phrase to keep in mind: “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

2014: Year-In-Review and What’s Ahead

the road ahead

End-of-year roundups are an intimidating endeavor.

Nothing pops the bubble of denial inside your own head like an excel spreadsheet.

They reveal the unmitigated truth, NO MATTER WHAT.

I just finished updating my master excel file that contains all the fixins – sales I made, volume sold, growth rates……the whole she-bang.

JEEZY-PETE! It’s an eye opener!

Looking over it is edifying, but it always takes me a few days to get the gumption to go ahead and do it.

So how’d things go?
