Is Taking Doctor Mercola’s Nutritional Typing Test Helpful?

Recently, I had to take doctor Mercola's nutritional type test and assess the results for one of my nutrition classes. There are three categories one may fall into: High protein: high density, high fat, high protein diet. High carb: high carb, low fat, low protein diet.

Four Weeks Off Blogging

Four weeks ago I took a long break from blogging to spend quality time with my mother, who was visiting from Eastern Europe. I hadn't seen her in a year and a half, so needless to say I was bouncing off the walls by the time she got off the plane. At first, I thought I could do both: blog and enjoy my mother's visit. I quickly discovered that as much as I would like to be wonder woman, I am not. So I lowered my expectations and assessed my priorities. My Mama, on the other hand, is Wonder Woman. She made this beautiful scarf in two days!

I put my lap top aside and did not open [...]
