According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, “After the body’s skeleton forms and grows to its adult size, it completely regenerates itself about every 10 years, through a process called remodeling.” Ok, so that makes sense, but how can your body be made of hemp? The answer is proteins. I’ve mentioned in previous articles about the several nutritional benefits of hemp foods, and how I personally choose hemp protein as my go to protein supplement.

Bites with Blondie

From chuck wagons to push carts, food trucks have gained huge popularity in recent years, and as a result, transformed the way Americans dine. Food trucks have evolved from just being a trend, to an official restaurant concept that millions of hungry diners  love. Although the food truck phase got its start in Los Angeles, many cities have adopted the curbside way of life. Listed as one of the “Top Towns” in food truck nation, Denver has certainly made a name for itself, with over 113 food trucks cruising around the city as of April 2018.

Bird Call

This is a Tale of Two Sandwiches; they were the best of sandwiches, not the worst of sandwiches. While I spend most of my time in this column talking about the cool things to do in Denver after the Rockies swallow the sun, today I’m going to deviate a tad from discussing venues’ sweaty greenrooms and sticky floors to discuss another critical piece of nightlife: what to eat the next day.

There’s something... Read More
