Lots of good stuff on the web this week to keep us healthy. First up is a free online offering from my friend Melanie Elkin of Yoga'licious. Melanie is doing great work in the world teaching women to love themselves just as they are, that nothing needs to be fixed or is broken. I did a retreat with her last year and it was magical, especially because she attracted such a great group of women with phenomenally positive energy. And now you don't have to live in California to learn from Melanie. Starting next week, she is offering an 8-day online program with daily prompts for self-care that guide you to love yourself just as you are! It doesn't take a lot of time, but the rewards for creating a shift in how you see and love yourself could be huge. And it's FREE! Whee hoo Yay! Did I mention the free part?

It seems there's a lot of conflicting advice in the nutritional world about what to eat, when to eat it, etc. Paleo is right for some but not all. Some people thrive on a vegan diet. I am a failed vegetarian who gets a lot of energy from animal and fish protein. If you are looking for some simple guidelines, check out this recent New York Times op-ed.
Kraft is removing all synthetic dyes from it's Mac n' Cheese. Did you know that a lot of synthetic food additives and colors we use in the United States are banned in Europe? Britain's University of Liverpool did a groundbreaking study in the mid-2000's showing the harmful side effects in children of the combination of certain additives, most commonly leading to hyperactivity disorders.
And that's a wrap on this edition of Web Wellness Wednesday!
In good health,
