Harmful Smoothies & Death Cleaning??? What I'm Reading

What I'm reading right now.

I get several emails and come across many tweets, instagram posts and Pinterest finds every day.

Here's what I'm reading this week:

The catchy title on this one definitely caught my attention:
This Super-Common Mistake Can Make Your Smoothies Harmful to Your Health

Any green smoothie lovers out there?  It's truthfully been a while since I've made one.  The article talks about why you should switch out your greens often when you make green smoothies.  I have a tendency to gravitate toward one green when I make my smoothies:  spinach.  The article was a good reminder why I shouldn't!  As of right now, though, I've given up spinach to test out a low histamine diet.  I'm not perfect at it, but I figure as long as I'm lowering the amount of histamine foods in my diet, I should at least see some improvement.  I have some eczema spots that have been pretty bad for a while.  Last week I did some research to find out if eczema gets worse in menopause.  Turns out it is very likely because of all of the changes that the skin goes through when your hormones start changing.  That darn estrogen influenced so many things.

If you've never been to the mindbodygreen website in the link above, you should.  I could stay on the site all day reading, if I had the time.


Oh my!  This next one will really get you thinking, and if you're going through Menopause, you might think "Whatever!  I don't care what people think!"  Just wait for it, you'll see what I'm talking about if you decide to read the article!  Apparently, one of the nice side effects of being this age is that you begin to not care as much about what other people think.  I'm not quite there yet.  But, I'm getting there.  The article does make a good point though about why you might want to start decluttering now.

'Swedish Death Cleaning' is the New Decluttering Trend

And I'm wondering if the jewelry that my mom passed on to us last time we were home was part of her Swedish Death Cleaning process!  Say it isn't so!
