I picked up a couple of issues of Healthy Living at our local natural food coop. I was intriquged by an aticle in volume 14 no. 10, "Green Cleaning Contenders." I will share some of these, and the site for the magazine is www. healthylivingmag.com. The article appears at p. 16. There was a competition for which cleaner might revmove coffee, pomegranate-grape juice stains better. The earth friendly product Everyday Stain and Odor remover, by Earth Friendly Products, allegedly removed the stain better than Resovle, Shout, or Soilover. Just something to think about. I also saw things like vegetable wash and Wolfgang Puck organic soups at the store.
Another useful and interesting article was "Nature's Powerful Immune Enhancers." It appears at p. 14 and argues for Olive Leaf as a secret weapon for hearth health and immune protection. I have never heard of this product. There is apparently a lot of literature about it, but I only mention it and am not endorsing it in anyway.
Vol. 15 no. 1 talks about "Swedish Bitters can Improve your Digestion." and "How Omega-3s are "Your Heart's Most important Nutrient." Another piece warns against using cleaners, even those labelled "green" that use palm oil because its overuse is endangering orangutangs and The Rain Forest. Again, coconut oil and other substitutes are discussed. There are also many articles about adopting a healthy lifestyle and attitude.
Since the magazine is often given free in health food stores and natural food coops, it is worth looking at and passing on to friends and family interested.
We finally have a sunny day, with little moisture or snow. The robins are still out, and building nests like mad. I am thrilled to see hostas and other plants beginning to peep out again. I rescued a fifty cent tulip plant and a $1.50 shamrock from the grocery store. They were the last of the shipment. They appear to be doing well. I also had two primroses last week, that reside in my kitchen window. They took a nosedive, but seem to be holding on now. I would like them to hang on a little longer so that I can plant them outside.
Seeds and garden tools are appearing, and I'm picking out some new scultpures for the yard. I'm usually an autumn person, but this year, I'm longing for the sun, and my beloved flowers, which I love at any season. My husband gave me pink tulips for Valentine's Day, and I couldn't get enough of them.
Yesterday, I went to Symphony for the first time in a long time. There was classical music, and an artistic photo collage that accompanied Holsts' "The Planets." It was breathtaking. The images of various Nebulae were a pastel pastiche that was remarkable. They were put together by a scientist/artist/astronomer. It was very good to get out and have a civilized evening with a good friend.
