    I used to be so scared of protein shakes. All I knew was that my muscle hungry brothers had a habit of drinking them like a dog lapse up water in the dead of summer, and that just did not seem congruent (or appetizing) with my female mind or body.  I could not understand how they...

    The chocolate most of us grew up on wasn’t really chocolate. It was brown creamy sugar bars with chocolate flavor. As a Vigor Trigger, I am referring to the good stuff, to either pure cacao or artisan dark chocolate made of at least 60% cacao. Hershey’s Special Dark is not on...
