As most of my readers know, I am in the midst of a lifestyle change. As a result, most of what I talk about lately involves food, exercise, or some variation of this. This is not becoming a food blog. I repeat, this is not becoming a food blog. It will remain the same random mashed up “lifestyle” blog it has always been. It’s just that right now, this is my reality. If you would like me to tone it down with the health crap, let me know. I want to share things that may be helpful to others, but if I’m completely losing you guys, please let me know. It is tough sometimes as a blogger to gauge your readers’ interests!
Anyway, this weekend there was a mini heat wave in L.A. We ventured out on a few occasions, but otherwise stayed indoors. As a result, we caught up on our Netflix queue.
Two Highly Recommended Documentaries. You may have very well seen both. We are behind in our documentary watching.
Food, Inc. made me want to go to my farmer’s market and hug everyone there. Also, it made me want to adopt thousands of chickens and cows. I know I can’t, but wow. I think I have been brainwashed by major food corporations for most of my life. Have you?
Tapped made me want to never drink bottled water again. During college and graduate school, I drank a ton of bottled water. Yuck. After that report on BPA was made public, I started to wonder about plastic water bottles. However, I never thought much about the water being put in them or the water’s source. Double yuck.
L and I promptly drove to The Container Store and bought a few of these Bobble filtered water bottles.
I shared this link on my Twitter, but I’ll post it again for those that didn’t see it. It is an article on environmental links to breast cancer and endometriosis. I think every woman (and every man, but mostly women read my blog) should know about these risks.
