I enjoy my decaf espresso in the morning. I love my wine in the evening. And, I adore all manner of cheese at any time, day or night. But I'm giving up all these -- plus wheat, sugar, and red meat -- to give my body a much needed cleansing.

For the first time I am willing to go without my culinary loves (or addictive habits, if you prefer) because I found a program that seemed doable, and I really wanted some extra energy in the final weeks of my website redesign project for the Good News Network. Plus, it's spring, a great time to think about detoxing the body.

When my friend in Montana, who'd just started a two-week cleanse, listed the foods and snacks that were acceptable to consume

Colorado has a large population of homeless people. If you're driving in the metro area, you will probably see a homeless man or woman on the corner of nearly every block.

My sister drives the same route home every day, getting off the 1-25 highway and exiting onto Colorado Blvd., a large street with about four lanes of traffic on each side of the median. Everyday she passes the same man, who stands on the corner of Colorado Blvd., asking for spare change or a chance at a job.

One day in particular she was pulled up next to the man, when he began doing something out of the ordinary. He began jogging down Colorado Blvd. Next thing she knew, he had thrown down his sign and started sprint

South African woman Gerdi McKenna was diagnosed with cancer a few months ago, and her friends decided to do something amazing to display their love and support.

In February, McKenna's friends sent an email to Caring Daises, a local charity, in hopes of planning a photo shoot for McKenna, who was diagnosed with breast cancer a few months earlier, Jacaranda FM reported. They planned to surprise McKenna by shaving their heads in a sign of solidarity and photographing the process.

The organization was able to get photographer Albert Bredenhann to help capture the moment. He shared the heartwarming event in a Vimeo video, titled "Anything for Love."

"My heart is full and I am doing it fo

An elderly Los Angeles couple who could no longer afford to care for their ailing pet delivered the dachshund to the doorstep of an animal shelter with a heartbreaking note.

"We are both seniors, sick with no money. We cannot pay for vet bills or to put him to sleep. He has never been away from us in all these years, he cannot function without us. Please put him to sleep."

Now they are glad they chose that doorstep.

The shelter workers were so moved by the plight of the family that they decided they had to find someone to donate free medical care for little Otto and reunite the couple with their beloved dog.

I’m willing to go out on a limb here and guess that most stories of kindness do not begin with drug addicted celebrity bad boys.

Mine does.

His name is Robert Downey Jr.

You’ve probably heard of him. You may or may not be a fan, but I am, and I was in the early 90’s when this story takes place.

It was at a garden party for the ACLU of Southern California. My stepmother was the executive director, which is why I was in attendance without having to pay the $150 fee. It’s not that I don’t support the ACLU, it’s that I was barely twenty and had no money to speak of.

I was escorting my grandmother. There isn’t enough room in this essay to explain to you everything she was, I would

It's easy to see why Tim and Jill McLarty chose to adopt Hunter: he's a sweet, calm and curious puppy. They didn't know, however, that he would end up saving their lives.

The McLartys adopted the Husky mix, now 3 months old, from a Michigan Humane Society off-site adoption center in Sterling Heights, Mich. last month.

Caiden Hooks is an awesome 10-year-old wrestler who happens to be blind.

He's also been diagnosed with autism, according to NBC4 Columbus, but instead of focusing on his own disabilities, he works to help others.

Along with his friend, Brandon Cannon, Caiden is raising money for autism awareness. Together, the boys have started a Facebook page called, "Wrestling Buddies for Autism Awareness."

Brandon, 9, has been by Caiden's side since he first saw him wrestle.

"I'm helping him so that he can become better at wrestling and just be known as a wrestler not just blind," Brandon told Fox 28.

"Being blind, it’s not actually bad. I can still get around and well ... I guess you could

Dylan Siegel, 7, would do anything for a friend -- especially if that friend is his best one, 8-year-old Jonah Pournazarian.

The pair has been inseparable ever since they met in preschool, when Dylan learned that Jonah faces a rare battle their other classmates didn't -- glycogen storage disease, or GSD, according to LEX 18. The condition causes Jonah's blood sugar to drop to potentially fatal levels, forcing his parents to follow an inflexible, round-the-clock schedule of feeding Jonah through a stomach tube in order to keep his metabolism stable, according to ABC News.

GSD does not have a cure. And, to Dylan, that is unacceptable.

So, back in 2013, when he was 6 years old, Dylan w

Jean-Marie Minani gets to witness powerful emotional moments with the simple use of a mobile phone.

Bananas contain three natural sugars – sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy.

Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes. But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas conta
