Worth repeating

I spent a fabulous amount of time on the internet last week, here are some articles, posts, etc. I want to keep track of:

1.  Awesome article from the beauty of it is about sunscreen (yes I seem to be dreaming of summer).  It’s confusing – the toxic stuff, the natural stuff, the ratings, this article has the links to the goods as well as her own breakdown of products that I found very helpful.

2.  Leave it to Kris Carr to make me feel good about some of my poorer choices as I wrapped up the holiday break……Crazy, Sexy , Gentle indeed.  I’m also getting ready to try out a few more of her recipes from her latest book, so far the juices have been one hit after another, so if you are thinking of juicing in 2013, this book is for you.

3.  “Water is the new oil crisis” – it’s a serious quote from Shiva Rose (of The Local Rose) on a project she did with Eileen Fisher.  But the article I found particularly helpful was more about CLEAN water and from my own city which, of course, makes it hit closer to home.  If you are interested in what you are brushing your teeth with, washing your hair with, cleaning your dishes with….not to mention trying to ingest 8 glasses of, then read this and then this.

4.  Yes, please

When looking for some fodder to help me actually plant something edible this year, I came across this article.  I realized another nice goal might be to have a dinner with all of my favorite folks, perhaps I’ll serve them something from my garden……and when I say “garden” I mean the pots of lettuce seeds that I hope will produce even just one leaf!
