Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
The last few weeks were filled with fantastic fun, family and food. Along the way, I learned quite a bit. Here is what caught my interest the last two weeks: Effort, poopin’, seasonal drinks, pork, thyroid, Thanksgiving myths, meal frequency, the flu, GMO cooking oils, lard, jaw bones, self health exam, sleep positions and (shocker here) cholesterol.
