After a post on GUT, a friend posted the following response: I enjoyed your article. I’ve been suffering from acid reflux for over 10 years. I am curious what specific changes / steps you made to improve your gut health. I know which foods cause me the most problems, and the issue for me is […]Read more "Reflux?

I am so […]Read more "Sugar, or the story of how I gained 20 lbs in 3 months."
There is a man. I have determined not to refer to him (or anyone for that matter) as a unicorn. Unicorns are fictional, mythical, magical creatures, and it is not fair to put these expectations upon another human being. An inherently flawed human being. (as we all are). I’ve been cooking. Cleaning. Grocery shopping. Purchasing […]Read more "Unicorns, cooking, and feminism."
