crunch on this

Celery is definitely having a moment. This is thanks, in part, to Anthony William, better known as The Medical Medium. He has developed a cult following with his Global Celery Juice Movement, which involves drinking 16 oz. of freshly squeezed celery juice every day. William says he’s been doing this since he was a child in the ’70s with amazing results. The health benefits are far-reaching, from relief of skin conditions to digestion issues, and everything in between. It may seem like celery just achieved superfood status, but this crunchy veggie and its seeds have been used as a medicine for centuries, for all sorts of ailments.

5 vital facts about organic food

this bar saves lives

A while back, two “millennial” buddies with successful entertainment careers decided to step outside their comfort zones and take a humanitarian trip to Liberia to rebuild a bridge for a small community. Once there, a visit to a refugee camp slammed them into a brutal awareness of the worldwide hunger crisis. Surrounded by helpless children dying of malnutrition, they decided to help.

With actors Kristen Bell and Ravi Patel enthusiastically joining the crusade, they planned to provide therapeutic “Plumpy’Nut” packets (a peanut-based paste) to malnourished children throughout the world.

in the spotlight: billy blanks

“We’re going around the country teaching people about fitness and showing people that if you make fitness a lifestyle instead of a trend you can get more out of it,” says Billy Blanks, who at 64 still wakes at 4:30 a.m. to train and teach his new Tae Bo-inspired multilevel fitness program, Billy’s BoomBoxing. “We’re talking to people about nutrition and exercise—and how to find a good workout, because the workout has to fit your personality. Everybody wants to be healthier and stronger, and feel good about themselves.” The author of Billy’s Power Meals also practices what he preaches when it comes to eating. “I want to teach people how to live a healthy and strong, vibrant life—and to show people they have the power to make choices and do whatever…
