    1. You’re welcome Ellen, loved your post! And yes – aren’t the dogs super cute!!! 🙂

  1. Great articles! I especially appreciate the In Defense of Supermarket Dietitians, obvs. Except the original article was clearly just misguided; it talked about “dietitians” but only interviewed “holistic nutritionists,” so of course they peddled supplements and pushed fads.

    PS I finished my whole skin elimination diet thing, and it was totally the peanuts. Dairy didn’t bother me one bit — cheese, milk, yogurt, ice cream, nothing. But 4 days of eating peanuts at every meal and my skin broke out like it was channeling a pubescent boy. The next time I see my doctor I’m going to ask for an allergy test — at the very least for peanuts specifically.

    1. I thought you would like that article!
      Peanuts?!?! That’s so weird. I know there’s some research that they can contribute to inflammation but I’m surprised they would make you break out so much. Although I’d rather give up peanuts than cheese….
      I am hopeful that my food sensitivity test next week gives me some answers. Although, I’ve been doing a lot less meat/dairy these past two weeks, drinking hot lemon water every morning, and also using Bragg’s organic ACV as a toner at least once a day and my skin has definitely improved in the last two weeks, so that’s hopeful.
