Insomnia: Can Getting Sleep Reduce Depression?
Insomnia = Depression?
I have always been a night owl. Without fail, I’d stay up way too late and often not by choice. Insomnia has been a big part of most, if not, all of my life.

I am sure you’ve got that killer homemade guacamole recipe that you love to dish out when friends are over or on special occasions. If you are an avocado fan you are probably used to adding it to your salad or sandwich as well. But, have you ever tried drinking it?
Recently, I felt a little daring and decided to drink my avocado and I was blown away by just how amazing and tasty it was. As I mentioned in a previous post, I have been juicing with the Nutribullet pro. I am finding just how creative one can be, as there are so many wonderful Nutribullet recipes out there today. I really enjoy the Nutribullet pro because there is little to no clean up and no vital nutrients thrown away or wasted.
Juicing with the Nutribullet-Pro Series: Healthy Rewards
Once you start juicing, you won’t feel like turning back. The great thing about juicing your veggies and fruits is that now you can juice without all the mess. There are a variety of Nutribullet recipes that can jump-start your new healthy lifestyle. I have heard a lot about Nutribullet and the Nutribullet Pro, but I was skeptical and thought it wasn’t going to be as good as other juicers. The thing I love about the Nutribullet is that there is no mess, little clean up, and no wasting an ounce of precious nutrients from your veggies or fruit that you’d ordinarily throw away.
