Answers and Questions – Part 2

I saw the movie "Eating You Alive" last Tuesday after feeling pretty digestively terrible.  It dawned on me that I was most regular and my skin looked its best when I was on the Daniel Fast last year, so I was interested in learning more about how a Vegan diet would improve my health.  I … Continue reading Answers and Questions – Part 2

Whole30 #2, Day 3

What a difference a night of sleep makes... I slept for 7:18 with only 57 minutes of awake time (better than the 2-4 hours I've been averaging lately). I also got 58 minutes of deep sleep. It was pretty nice! I did take another of those sleep aids from the doctor and I had the … Continue reading Whole30 #2, Day 3
