  1. I shall have to add Plenish and Eating for Beauty to my reading list. My hubby and I have recently tried juicing but we were not so successful in the endeavor. Perhaps we had too lofty a goal and just don’t have enough info to keep us motivated. Thanks for the list!

  2. Reblogged this on SIMPLYACTIVELEARNINGNOW: How do you study? and commented:
    Nutrition is a key catalyst to strengthen our minds and bodies. Mood and health are the most important factors shaping our lives, and keeping ourselves updated on these concepts are far more beneficial than updating our gadgets. Internal well being is far more valuable than external distractions and stimuli.
