Review: Smart Power Strips save Energy and have other Advantages

Review: Smart Power Strips save Energy and have other Advantages

My mechanical timer failed and I had to look for a replacement. And so I (finally) discovered smart power technology.

Smart power strips save energy. And because the sockets can be controlled independently of each other, I have discovered even more advantages.

At the moment I don’t have much smart power technology at home. What functions well does not have to be discarded the minute we want something else. But some devices will definitely be replaced in the future. It is both good for my long-term sustainability and my wallet since the price of electricity has risen considerably in Spain.

Review of Nutriciously - How to Change Lifestyle Habits Sustainably

In The Essential Nutrients to have a Balanced Diet I was talking about diets and lifestyles. Through the years my husband Tom and I have developed our own lifestyle, based on our preferences, experiences and (of lately) ailments.

Review of Your Super – Superfood in a Cardboard Can?

Review of Your Super - Superfood in a Cardboard Can?

Until a few years ago I had never heard of superfoods. Probably nobody had. 🙂 And all of a sudden they are the talk of the town. Are they really that super and what can be the benefits of superfood? 

This article will be about superfood, and is a review of Your Super that sells superfood in the form of powders.

Be aware that superfood is a marketing term. There is no scientific research to back up some of the claims that are made about superfoods. A one-sided diet is never healthy. So I do eat superfoods myself, but always together with a variety of other (in my eyes) healthy food.
