After being pummeled with coupons and ads for McDonald's latest drink, the McCafe Smoothie, I thought I would try one (strawberry-banana flavor) today. I laughed when, once placing my order, the first words out of the worker's mouth were, "Will that be a large?" As an entrepreneur I can...

Obesity is always a news topic in various forms, facts and figures. But this fact, for some reason, made my jaw drop:
"86% of Americans are on their way to becoming obese by 2030." (Obesity, July 2008)

Is it really any surprise that, according to recent research, the bevy of "toning shoes" don't deliver? No you won't suddenly achieve a muscular backside, burn extra calories, or "get into shape without setting foot in a gym."
And if you thought you would...well that is positive thinking....

I give credit to Wendy's for making salads a big part of the fast food chain's menu. The burger joint just rolled out four new "premium" salad choices -- adding to the existing four choices. So salad eaters have 8 choices. Panera Bread is another fast-causal eatery that showcases salads...

Not too long ago, we blogged on Kombucha and its unique health benefits. Recently several of our die-hard Kombucha drinkers were aghast; Whole Foods had pulled GT's & Synergy's Kombucha beverages from store shelves. (Both are manufactured by Millennium Products.)
