Eating Vegetables Could Make You Happier

I'll be honest, I had my first legal drink before I had my first salad. You couldn't pay me to eat my veggies when I was growing up. It wasn't for lack of trying, either! I tried salad a few times as a teenager, and I only managed to choke down a single bite each time before just giving up. Something finally clicked in my early twenties, though; and now I don't just eat vegetables, I downright crave them sometimes. Well it turns out that feeding those veggie cravings could help you feel better emotionally as well as physically!

Food Trucks in Fort Collins Are Gaining Popularity

A month or so ago, my fiance and I were having lunch in one of our favorite Old Town restaurants, when she got a text message from one of her friends. She read the text to herself with a confused look on her face, so I asked her what was up. She said her friend was "in a brewery parking lot, eating waffles," and said we were welcome to join him. I was immediately confused as well; that is, until we discovered he was eating at the Waffle Lab, one of the many food trucks popping up around Fort Collins.

Denver Man Wins $7 Million from ‘Popcorn Lung’ Lawsuit

I grew up snacking on microwave popcorn. My dad used to buy it in bulk, and we'd be stocked for weeks. And now that I'm trying to lose weight for my wedding, microwave popcorn makes a much healthier snack than many other things. Now, I'm not saying this story is going to make me stop eating the stuff; but I might hold my breath when I open the bag from now on!
