Why You Should Wear Sunscreen (Even On Cloudy Days)


I’m militant about people wearing sunscreen.  I remember learning about our depleting ozone layer in school and being horrified- and it’s worse now! People have a lot of excuses to not wear sunscreen but I really, really, really want people to change their minds. The difference between UVA and UVB rays confuses people- including myself, so I looked it up.…

Whole Food Diary: April 23-27


I was concerned that eating more mindfully would take a long time to make a difference, but changes are happening!! I wake up easier in the morning, my nails are stronger, and my bowel movements are normal. I know it seems like TMI but bowel movements are so important!

Leaky Gut and Flaky Eyes: How It Happened to Me and What I’m Doing About It.


My health has slowly been improving this year. I suddenly decided I didn’t want to sit on my hands and just accept that my health would never be great again. As you know from previous posts, I just coasted through life eating whatever I wanted and exercising sporadically until my late twenties. Not because I was naturally skinny and comfortable…

Gut Health Help: Article Roundup.


I have massive problems with my gut health and I have had them since suffering severe food poisoning two years ago. Since that day, my gut has turned into an unhappy monster.

The Hands of Wonder Woman, The Body of Baymax


Hello! Today I feel nearly recovered from my cold. Our family was sick for a month and a half with tiny breaks in between where we were well. It was brutal. I had the flu, a cold, another cold and then the worst cold of all! I currently have a nose that could light the way for Santa’s sleigh, it…

The Konmari Method and Saving Money


On this cold day that feels like it will snow, I am inside doing laundry and reflecting on the state of my house, which I successfully ignored during the warmer months. It is a cluttered mess. Maybe not by some’s standards, but by mine it is. Even trying to find the right winter clothing has been painful….and, by the way,…

Exploring Gut Health


I will never take my health for granted again. I used to eat whatever I wanted, at any time of day, without a second thought. Now, I have a severe gluten-intolerance and I will never take my health for granted again. A couple of years ago, on my husband’s birthday, we went out for Vietnamese. I used the bathroom as…
