Michigan State University students Gabriela Saldivia and Colin Marshall challenged themselves both mentally and physically as they participated in a 31-day raw food diet. They documented their experiences on their blog as they only ate food in its natural form. Impact’s Abbie Newton talks to the duo as they speak about their new perspectives on food.

Here’s a playlist of tunes from a section of albums that we enjoy on a regular basis at home. Bethany and I both love the classic folk and rock sounds of the 20th century with a few modern acts thrown into the mix. I personally tend to lean heavily towards songwriters that offer a hint of quirk and character in their writing.
Playlist for Brandon John Foote of Gifts or Creatures:
Today’s Jam of the Day comes from Pennsylvania’s own psychedelic indie rock band, Dr. Dog. “Love” is the last single off of their most recent album, B-Room.
Sit back after your Super Bowl food coma and relax to some tracks from artists like Odesza, Jamie xx, Lotus, and more!
