Special Diets are Not Just Trendy
In 2023, it may seem "trendy" for people to have special diets and food allergies. From being "gluten free" to "dairy free" to "raw food vegan" to people who do not eat any carbs, and now with the World Economic Forum telling us that "you will eat ze bugs," there's a huge playing field for the special needs of individuals on a diet. The hardest part is that there's no "one diet" that works for everyone. In this blog, I explore some of these diets and my own personal journey in finding my own special diet.
Fulhum - Black is Beautiful
I consider myself a water snob, filtering chlorine and fluoride from my tapwater for over 10 years and ordering Topo Chico or Pelligrino in a restaurants for just as long. So, I was excited when Texas-based Fulhum asked me to review their product, an alkaline water infused with fulvic and humic minerals. In the midst of drinking lots of water for a cleanse, upon my first sip, I could feel my cells thanking me. This wasn't ordinary bottled water. This was some "next level" mineral water.
The water we drink can have a huge impact on our health. Beyond the unfortunate incidents in Flint, Michigan, studies indicate that we need less chemicals and more minerals in our water. Cities like San Marcos, Texas are turning off their chemical tap to medicate the population with fluoride, and water is being recognized as our most precious resource around the world. Away from home, bottled water becomes my first choice because I may not trust the tap, but I learned long ago that all bottled water brands are not created equal, and science can help us decide which is the best.
