Cupcake #7: Upping your probiotic intake with 3 yogurt alternatives

This article is being written not only to educate others, but to hold myself accountable to healthy best practices. For as long as I can remember, I have had stomach issues. When I was younger it wasn’t as substantial, probably because I was able to burn calories much faster.

Cupcake #2: The best 5 ways to conquer the drunk munchies

We’ve all been there. Had a few too many drinks and then decided the best solution was to mow down on fast food or cereal or whatever was eye-level in your pantry when you got home.
