Another week has passed us by. I don’t know about you, but I feel like time is just speeding up the older I get. Makes me a little sad and also reminds me that we have to all seize the day and make the absolute best out of every single day. Life is short and uncertain, a fact made all too clear in light of this week’s tragedy in Boston. Whenever something like this happens, it is a solemn reminder to remember that we never know what will happen and where it will happen. Hug your loved ones close and live life to the fullest! So, without letting this post turn too sad, let’s go ahead and get started! Here are some of the top stories that you may have missed this week!

Fermented potatoes? What? Have you ever heard of such a thing? Well, this week, Lisa, from Lisa’s Counter Culture, stopped by Lydia from Divine Health’s site and shared her technique for fermenting potatoes. Why, you ask? Because it makes them much easier to digest and eliminates certain anti-nutrients that are present in the good ol’ tater.
Do you keep a food diary? I do off and on, but it is a great habit to get into, especially if you are working to heal certain illnesses. Tracking what you eat and how you feel throughout the day can help you pinpoint areas that may be causing you trouble. Patty from Loving Our Guts shared a great post this week about how to make and use a food diary and discusses the importance of this habit.
