What is real food?
It seems like a simple question, and many of us who have been making significant lifestyle changes in order to eat real food already know the answer.
But for those who are just starting out, or have not yet made the decision to eat well and be healthy, discovering the difference between real food and what they sell in the supermarkets may be both surprising and life-changing.

Did you remember to buy your Halloween candy?
Depending on where you live, Halloween may be celebrated with lots of trick-or-treating, or very little. In most communities, there are usually lots of options for emphasizing fun things to do besides giving out, collecting or eating candy.
There’s good reasons not to make candy the focus of Halloween, too. Scary reasons.

Real Food Blogger Bites is a new weekly series on Cheeseslave. I’ll be asking real food bloggers a “question of the week.”
For our premiere weekly Real Food Blogger Bites feature, I asked the following question, “What’s your favorite real food testimonial?”
If you have not heard the news, TED Talks recently denied the allegation that they have a relationship with Monsanto as well as the claim that they are banning all talks regarding GMO food.
Implicit in the denial was a strong suggestion that local organizers of TEDx Talks ban any talks regarding GMOs as well as any subjects they regard as “pseudoscience”.
If TED Talks curators took their own advice, they would ban Copernicus, Newton, Darwin, Galileo and Einstein. So much for “ideas worth spreading”.

Most women use oil-based makeup from major brands without thinking about the ingredients, many of which are not good for the skin. These include preservatives that contain toxins, petroleum bases and formaldehyde (which is typically used by funeral homes in the process of embalming). Not only are these ingredients not really the types of products to put on your skin, but they can be absorbed into your body. They are not good for your overall health.
There are alternatives to putting embalming fluid on your face in order to look beautiful. Did you know that you can make your own make-up from natural, organic food or minerals?
In her book, Make Your Own Makeup from Organic Food or Minerals, Lori Klein from Health Extremist shows you how.
