  1. I have some Audible credits I must use. I really enjoy well written mysteries. What are your favorites that are Audible credit worthy please? Thanks
  2. Can you use a Vitamix similarly to make almond butter?
  3. I juice often. I juice because I have absorption/digestive issues and the juice is absorbed more easily into the intestines. I have a top quality Omega juicer that leaves very dry pulp. I primarily juice only vegetables-all kinds including lots of greens. I may add a few drops of liquid stevia. It is not typically tasty, but tolerable and extremely beneficial for my health to be able to more completely receive the nutrition from the vegetables. It is time consuming, but well worth it for me. I do think the type of juicer you purchase and your reasons for juicing make the difference.
  4. I use Vanguard.com. I pay the extra percent fee for management services of my retirement accounts. I can arrange phone sessions with them when ever I want and they are very patient to answer all of my questions. Their website has a tremendous amount of educational material. My IRA seems to perform better thank my husbands 401K with Prudential with the school system. We maximize our retirement savings yearly-as we are able.
  5. My inflammation tends to reside in my digestive system with occasional joint issues. I am finding that a non-dairy keto and intermittent fasting has reduced my inflammation tremendously. I also enjoy lots of non pounding aerobic exercise-walking, hiking, biking, swimming, and tons of yoga. I regularly use a foam roller, acupressure tool, sauna, very hot baths, and monthly massage. I think these activities have also helped to reduce my inflammation.
  6. My dh is a high school art teacher of 30 years. Both of these experiences are within driving distance (2-3 hours) from my home. I am thinking of purchasing tickets and was curious if anyone has had the opportunity to experience these and has reviews. https://vangoghexpo.com/ https://chapelsistine.com/exhibition/ Thanks.
  7. Just made an AirBnB reservation in Hartland, VT-between 10-20 miles from both Woodstock and Hanover for 1 week at Christmas. My dc are grown and not living nearby nor are they able to take a week off at Christmas to visit. We plan to be touristy, cross country ski, and snowshoe. Did I make a good decision? I have not yet booked airline tickets and can cancel if desired. I don't know the area well-living in WNC for 30 years and 20+ in Chicago. Thanks!
  8. Just purchased the Cuisinart TAO-60. Since Covid, I have really gotten into creative cooking and am enjoying expanding my repertoire into more and more healthier foods. I am looking forward to creating with the air fryer/convection toaster oven.
  9. I aim for 18:6 or 16:8 most days with a 24 one day a week. It feels good to not be a slave to a hunger pang.
  10. It is just dh and I as dd is on her own and ds is in college. Is a CSA worth it for 2? I shop weekly at a variety of stores for fresh and immediate need items and for stocking items (if on sale). That would probably not change as I am picky on the quality of what we eat and prefer menu shopping. Thanks.
  11. I do very similar. I love it. My dermatologist uses a very conservative approach to enhance not change. I work full time as a private practitioner in mental health-now that my kids are grown-and need to be able to be relatable to all ages and stages. It works for me.
  12. What is the best way to take this for joint pain? Capsule or apply EO topically? I also take turmeric, ginger, and follow a low inflammatory diet to the best of my ability. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0797KV92C/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=A352Y41TNO5V9N&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00LACF4ZS/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A3FMSIXEOKG0CD&psc=1
  13. I purchase the Audible annual Premium (now with Plus) 24 credit for $229-averaging about $9.50 a book. This is great for my family of 4.
  14. I am in behavioral mental health and am considered essential and higher risk because I have IRL contact (typically from a 6ft distance). Thoughts on why my county is offering Moderna over others and concerns and relief.
  15. All-Clad pots and pans and bakeware. A couple of Pampered Chef stoneware-pizza stone and baking sheet. I wanted a lifetime warranty and for my son, who is a culinary student, to be able to inherit them. I also have Lodge cast iron skillet and dutch oven.
  16. We had our air ducts cleaned a few weeks ago and the mold in our crawl space today along with a dehumidifier installed. Our home is almost 30 years old and in both cases trouble was beginning (evidence indicated) and we nipped it in the bud. My dh and I have decided that this is our "forever" home so we think of it as an investment into our retirement and into our health.
  17. I'd like to giive myself a facial and am willing to purchase a few simple tools and ingredients. Any must haves? Thanks
  18. I walk just about every morning after I read Scripture, a devotional, journal, and review memory verses. Then, when I walk, I pray and meditate. I get up very early to make this happen (and go to bed early), but it has served me well for 30+ years and is a very important grounding part of my day. The rest of the day can go downhill (and it often does), but I have had my time and time with God.
  19. Needing to replace my dear worn slippers and am having a hard time landing on something that seems just right. Ease of wear while in my pjs and for all seasons would be great. Thanks!

    Not as good as the first WW.
  21. Received a capsule machine-size 00 (by request). Plan to encapsulate all my green powders, powdered collagen, and would like to move into encapsulating my turmeric and some other herbal and nutritional supplements that are much more economical in bulk powdered form. Suggestions of organic, non GMO brands? And methods of encapsulating? And most cost effective DIY encapsulation vs pre-bought products. Thanks.
  22. I'm in the mood for a good Bollywood movie-not to dark. A romance and adventure. Any thoughts? Thanks!
  23. This is the one I purchased. It said to click on the small box for a $4 coupon this morning. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N1UX8RW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  24. Just ordered the one mentioned above-had a $4 coupon with it also-Thanks!
