The Vegetable meets The Butcher

"Everyone is a seeker in his or her own way. We are all concerned about understanding ourselves, people, places, times, and experiences. We exert some degree of effort trying to develop that understanding further. We seek truth in many different forms -- greater, simpler, or other. We seek answers, solutions, and results. We are more than just a blog, and more than just food."

We're a group of people trying to change health one blog topic at a time. Our aim is to serve up content for those in search of optimal performance, both mentally and physically. We understand there's no-one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to diets and lifestyles, but small changes -- more sleep, exercise, less stress, and eating real food -- can lead to greater and more impactful changes on our health.

Follow us along our journey to becoming better version of ourselves.
