Camel's Milk - Sooooo Camelicious!

Camel's milk has been consumed as a drink and also used to make yogurt, soap and cheese in the Middle East for ages. It is said to be closer to human milk in composition than cow's milk, and therefore easier for humans to digest. Read on.....




Exercising in Extreme Heat - Beware!

I don't know how hot it is where you live, but here in New York City the weather has been scorchingly HOT! Simple outdoor activities like running, biking and blading seem to be taking place in hell if you choose to do them at the wrong time of the day. I have had to suspend my late afternoon boot camps for now because having a bunch of people running, jumping, sprinting and leap frogging during near 100 degree temperatures is not a great idea. For those of you that are hopping on the outdoor exercise craze that comes along with summertime, here are some things to do to stay safer during those outdoor workouts... Read on.....


Teen Alcohol Abuse - Right In Your Own Backyard

Even with all the news coverage on the subject these days, teen and pre teen alcohol abuse is a lot closer to home and more widespread than most realize. I always like to think that my little nieces and nephews haven't tried to drink yet (they're 8, 9, 10 and 11), but these days it's more likely than not that they have. It's just all out there right now, everything. Sex, drugs, alcohol, you name it. I would be afraid to be a parent of a teenager right now.
As jaded as the typical New Yorker can be, I still found myself quite shocked when I came upon a group of teens toting one of their drunken friends home from school today. You can think that you've seen it all, but Read on.....

Be it a politician, an athlete, and entertainer or just the guy next door, it seems that cheating on your spouse just because you feel like it is in these days.

boxingWith a new work out system or fitness gadget coming at us daily, it can be hard to figure out and know what is really effective and worth our time. It seems that each fitness expert out there has their own theory, but in the midst of all those theories, you can clear away the clutter just by realizing what working out really is supposed to do for you.

So, What's the best exercise plan? Well, the best workout regimen is Read on.....



Getting Control of Your Anger

For many of us, learning to control our tempers is one of the hardest things in the world to do. Our societies have become places where people now feel comfortable to say, do or act towards you in any way they please, and whether right or wrong, your reaction to this can be devastating if you just let your anger fly.
Homicide and assault rates are up, and the prisons are full of people who just in the blink of anger reacted in a way to some offense that changed their life and someone else's forever. How can one hold their composure in the face of extreme adversity without completely losing it and possibly killing someone?

Camel's Milk - Sooooo Camelicious!

With more iron, an "insulin like" protein, and also being a great source of vitamins B and C, camel's milk has come up on the radar of marketers in the United States as of late. Camel's milk has been consumed as a drink and also used to make yogurt, soap and cheese in the Middle East for ages. It is said to be closer to human milk in composition than cow's milk, and therefore easier for humans to digest.

According to Ulrich Wernery, the scientific director of Dubai's Centre for Veterinary Research Laboratory:

"People with lactose intolerance can drink it with no problem, unlike cow's milk, it doesn't cause protein allergies, and it's high in insulin,"

Camel's milk is beginning to be touted as the world's latest "super food".

Camel's milk is illegal to sell in the US -- and also a bit more expensive to produce, but no worries -- they're working on it. Now that there is an increased interest in the substance, the FDA is looking into testing camel's milk and possibly soon making it available at your local grocery store.

There seem to be varying opinions on the taste, some saying it's a bit salty, and some saying it's extremely rich and a bit sweet. You taste it first and tell me about it, okay? When it does finally arrive, that is. In the meantime, me and the cows are getting along just fine! Pass me the cow's milk and some Hershey's chocolate syrup, please!

Think you'd be up to trying some ice cold, rich and creamy camel's milk? I'm not knocking it, but I'm not so sure that I'd like to try it. I'm a bit squeamish when it comes to eating and drinking certain things.

Ready to jump on the camel wagon right now? Then check out Camelicious, a premier producer of camel's milk. Gotta love that name! Camelicious, indeed! ;)


Moooooooo!
