Health & Nutritional Education Reference


Veganism, as defined by the Vegan Society, is "a way of living that seeks to exclude, as far as possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals, for food, clothing or any other purpose."

A vegan lifestyle is free from all animal products, whether derived by slaughter (such as meat, chicken, and fish), or otherwise (such as eggs, dairy and honey).

The word "vegan" was coined in 1944 by Donald Watson of the Vegan Society of the UK.

Kitchen & Dining


Pressure Cooker

A pressue cooker is versitle piece of hardware to have in your kitchen.

Some people have concerns/fears of pressure cookers, but many of the current models have additional safety features. Make sure to read, not skim, the owner's manual before using one.

It takes time for the water to boil and proper pressure to build up. Any where from 5 to 20 minutes, depending on the quantity of water and the wattage of the unit. If you could cook the food via conventional means in 20 minutes or less, then maybe you should do that instead of using the pressure cooker.

Why you Should Not Wear Shoes at Home

The University of Houston did a study and found that 39% of shoes contained bacteria C. diff (otherwise known as Clostridium difficile) [NCBI], this is a public health threat that is now also resistant to a number of antibiotics. C. diff infections can cause multiple health conditions such as bad diarrhea which can also progress to colon inflammation and further serious health problems, especially if it doesn’t respond to antibiotic treatment effectively.
