The Importance of Protein for an Aging Population
Protein is a vital nutrient that’s important for all age groups because it’s required by every cell in the human body. Since protein needs tend to increase as we get older, researchers are now paying special attention to the protein needs of the people over age 65.

DIY Egg Carton Bird Feeder
Having grown up in nature, I have always enjoyed spending time outdoors. My dad, the environmentalist/marine biologist/zoologist expert himself, took an interest in educating my cousins and me on the wilderness and ecosystems that make up the island we (and they) call Horseshoe.

So, I decided to make an egg carton bird feeder!

Eggs and Vitamin K2
Eggs are a source of important vitamins and minerals, including selenium, folate, and vitamin D. But one nutrient that recently is getting a lot of attention is vitamin K2, which is found in eggs.
