Costa Rica: New Ways to Nurture Family

  

I recently traveled through Costa Rica, a small Central American country where peace of mind is a natural commodity. Visiting felt like a breath of fresh air with the slow pace of living and ecological mindfulness. The country has no need for a military presence and family life is a top priority.

High unemployment in the US continues to contribute to the economic downturn. And multi-generational households increase…

Food Waste Has Become a Big Global Issue

Growing up in a society that had a limited selection and shortage of certain foods, I became more aware of what food represents and what is its real value.
