PART I : Travel and Grab A Taste Of The Following Beer From Each State In The US

Published

on

The annual National Beer Day came and went, but that doesn’t make it illegal to savor the best beer from every state. They work fine when you would like to unwind with a crisp, cold glass after a long day. The list is a portion of what was originally done by Ratebeer.com and if you would love to take your love for beer to the next level, why don’t you try each of them?

Part #1

Alabama

We go for a glass of Unobtanium, English-styled ale. This #1 beer in Alabama is aged for six months and released on a very limited capacity. You can visit their brewery in Huntsville and see how this kind of amazing whiskey is aged in a bourbon barrel.

Alaska

The best things aren’t overly available, and that applies to Alaskan Brewing Company beer that’s only available in a limited “vintage” of the maker’s trademark smoked porter once every year. The beer is not wine, but comes in a special glass similar to that.

Arizona

In this state, we have Wilderness’ Superstition Coffee Stout, a beer that has a sweet aroma. The beer is steeped using coffee beans and vanilla, and, expectedly, has lots of enthusiasts.

Arkansas

With a slight taste of bitterness, Diamond Bear Brewing rank top among the best beers in Arkansas. Alongside the slight bitterness, the beer’s lovely roasted caramel malt makes it great.

California

Once here, just order a glass of Firestone Walker’s XX Anniversary Ale. You’ll love the toffee and caramel flavors.

Colorado

In this state, Nightmare on Brett with a ruby-red sour taste is the best.

Connecticut

From Thomas Hooker Brewery is a rich, filling doppelbock favorite as Liberator.

Delaware

On the boozy side of Delaware, grab a pint of Dogfish Head Palo Santo Marron.

Florida

With a smoky taste, barrel-aged Morning Wood Imperial Porter is the best to drink as you travel around Florida.

Georgia

If you have been to this state, then you must have tasted some Creature Comforts’ fruity, citrus-heavy beer called Tropicália.

Hawaii

Coconut Hiwa Porter is the best beer in Hawaii, whether you love any of the dark malt, chocolate or coffee varieties.

Idaho

Brewed first in 2009, Grand Teton Brewing Double Vision Doppelbock is the leading beer in Idaho.

Illinois

The leading President Obama’s backyard of Chicago, but aged in Kentucky is Goose Island’s Bourbon County Barleywine beer.

Indiana

A medium-bodied, single-hop pale beer, Three Floyds Zombie Dust is our best selection in Indiana.

Why Organic Food Is Going Mainstream

Published

on

One of the latest phenomena blossoming in the food industry is the changing consumer preference and the odds seemingly favoring those who love safe and chemical-free foods. The ballooning consumer demand is impressive granted that the bright star in the grocery business is a win-win for both the consumers and the growers. But, of particular importance is the reason people are going for these organic foods instead of the traditional ones.

Organic foods are nutritious with no chemical substances

Fueling the organic habit is the need for a better food alternative that puts nutrition and better health first. From plants to organic meats, all of them are perfect for those who would love to stay healthy and far from the many lifestyle based ills. Plants like beans, lentils, grains, nuts and seeds offer wide-ranging perks that keep us healthier while organic meat, fish, and other animal-based organic foods are also sustainable.

Animal welfare

Food production is largely an industrialized process that also employs a heavy use of chemicals for aroma and as preservatives. But with consumer awareness becoming an order of the day nowadays and animal welfare calls becoming more vocal via the mainstream media, use of chemicals in food production is dwindling. In fact, antibiotic-free meats, milk, and eggs as a result of better animal husbandry practices are not a new thing anymore.

Better for the environment

Much like animal welfare, environmental awareness issues surrounding food production isn’t a new idea today, although organic food growers are trying to make their efforts enough for their environment. The move is bolstered by the fact that sustainable methods of growing these foods and keeping animals also impact the environment positively. And, given that there’s no use of chemicals, it is indeed true.

Who buys organic foods?

Getting these foods is becoming even easier, and prices are becoming more reasonable, and much of it is due to the large stores and foods grocers having them, including Wal-Mart and Wild Oats organic foods. And since the number of consumers in on a gradually rising trend, it isn’t hard to tell for sure who leads the line.

Millennial parents are the most tech-savvy and indeed health-savvy given that they occupy a massive 50% and even more of those who buy the organic foods. Generation X parents and baby boomers are other organic food enthusiasts, although it is the increasing number of organic food stores that serve as a perfect testament to the growing movement.

And what is fueling the habit?

Besides each of the above reasons, other reasons to try organic foods include:

  1. The rise of the many groups that connect over the web with intentions of emancipating the masses.
  2. Mainstreaming of veganism, without a doubt, gives rise to the organic food movement too.
  3. Fast food stores are starting to include organic food menus.

Do you buy organic foods ? Why do you do so ? Lets get talking.

Beginner tips for transitioning into a vegan diet

Published

on

There are many types of diets out there, however, plant-based diets are becoming increasingly popular in the UK. Their rise in popularity has been caused by a surge of awareness regarding what people are putting into their bodies and how their choices impact the environment and other living things.  While a plant-based diet is not the best approach for everyone, nor should it be, it does have significant benefits for those that take it seriously.

So what exactly is a plant-based diet?

A plant-based diet is a diet that is a made up of plant-based foods such as vegetables, leafy greens, seeds, legumes, nuts and whole grains. Plant-based diets call for the elimination of processed foods, deep fried foods, and meals containing large sugar content because they tend to be low in nutritional value.

Some plant-based diets do allow the use of cultured dairy products such as organic eggs and wild fish while others do not. Because a plant-based diet contains all the necessary macronutrients in their raw form, this type of diet is considered much healthier by many. The benefits of the plant-based diet include increased energy levels, a healthier heart, as well as saving money on food.

Transitioning into a plant-based diet

Transitioning into a plant-based diet can be hard, particularly if you do not know what to do or what to expect. The process can be daunting and it can leave you overwhelmed at times owing to the whirlwind of information and questions that you may have. If you do not know where to start, here are tips that can make the process of transitioning easier for you:

Carry out your research

Most people tend to forget to carry out their research whenever starting anything new, which is quite unfortunate. The research will allow you to make your own decision as to what rules fit your lifestyle or your goals. For instance, some plant-based experts claim that you should not eat honey while others do. Educating yourself can help you assess the risks and benefits of eating some meals so that you can pick foods that are right for you.

Start off with a pace that works for your needs

Some people make the decision to transition right away, which means that they will never consume a morsel of meat again, while others choose to do it slowly. It is important to be realistic about your long-term goals to avoid disappointments later on in the transition. It might take a long time, but transitioning gradually will not only allow you to learn as the process continues, but it will also prevent you from having to deal with too many cravings. Unless your need for change has been signaled by a health crisis, it is better to start off slowly.

Plan and prepare your meals

If you are busy, you might not have time for prepping your meals during the week. The lack of time can cause you to slip back into old habits so meal prep is key. The best time to prepare your meals is Sunday or during those moments when you are free. When meal prepping, you should go through your list of meals for breakfast, lunch, and supper to pick which meals you will eat during the week. It might take some time before you can get a working rhythm and pattern, but when you do, it can save you time and the headache of having to decide which meal to eat on the spot.

Find support

Change can feel very lonely especially when it causes you to stand out from the crowd. Having the support of others that are going through the process can go a long way in enriching your experience and can make your transition into your new healthier lifestyle less stressful. Try and enlist the support of your family and friends if you can. If you can’t, then there are community forums online and support networks that can help you out and keep you motivated.
