Here are my picks this week...
All year every year, I wait patiently for peach season to return.
And now...it's HERE!!!!
and I have no idea why that peach looks so misshapen...yikes! It was good :)
Bakery on Main gluten-free granola...
...mixed with blueberries and raspberries and a little rice milk makes
a delicious and healthful snack or meal.
As part of my new nutritional regimen, I am suggested to incorporate seeds into my diet...
pumpkin and flax during the first half of my monthly cycle and
sunflower and sesame during the second half.
Even though the Garlic & Sea Salt sprouted sunflower seeds smell like a combo of a**, decomposing sweat socks and the worst halitosis imaginable, they are delicious!
You know, if you can sorta muscle your way past the gag reflex, all kinds of food possibilities open up.

Also really weird-smelling but great-tasting and very refreshing,
I've read about kombucha for years and scoffed.
I no longer scoff. Now... I love.
Warning: the stuff is fizzy so don't shake it or open in your car without exercising caution.
I hate black licorice, be it in jelly beans, whips, whatever.
Even the smell of anise makes me gag.
Lucky me...Licorice Extract is a twice a day component of my "beat adrenal fatigue" protocol...
and surprisingly, when you mix a quarter-teaspoonful of the nasty, tar-like substance with a tall glass of hot water, you get a delicious, naturally-sweet tea. I didn't like it at first, but I believe that was more based on my anti-licorice bias and less on how it actually tasted.
New hair conditioner!
I have coarse, thick, dry hair. I've never bothered to check out hair care products...too lazy or just not interested. I always figured my hair is what it is and there ain't nothin' gonna help it without a ton of effort. Then the other day I was just done with it feeling like straw. That same day I happened to walk up the beauty aisle at the grocery store (which I never do) and this bottle jumped into my cart.
It has transformed my hair into a shiny, silky, non-greasy mane of luxurious locks.
Mezamashii Run Project from Mizuno...
Back in November I bought my first pair of Mizunos.
They were the ruby red Wave Rider 15 Limited Edition beauties
and they changed the way I run in a really good way.
Recently I was invited to be a part of Mizuno's Mezamashii Run Project...
"...more ecstatic, electric, wind-in- your heart running."
Okay...whatever...But I love my Mizunos,
and the other night I did have an ecstatic, blah blah blah run
in these glorious, sunshiny-yellow shoes
that made me remember what I LOVE about running
and why it is worth it to do all the rehab work so I can continue to do it.
the fact that I, once again finally, have a waist...
So it isn't chiseled or cut or ripped or modelesque...
it IS a waist again.
One that goes in at the sides and doesn't stick out in the front.
And it's mine.
What are YOU digging right now? What will you be grooving on this weekend?
– I'm contemplating attempting an elliptical marathon this weekend. I'm not sure if it will be a groove-fest or a psychotic trip to hell. I really don't want the latter :P
