    Great book which helped me to ditch even minor cravings from my diet:

    The Willpower Instinct: How Self-Control Works written by Kelly McGonigal, Stanford University.

    Reads really easily!

      I've discovered the joy of the original Conan stories by Robert E. Howard. Not really life changing, but, I never thought I would like what is essentially hilarious, violent porn from the 1930's so much. I mean, come on: a spacefaring elephant man that flew on lightspeed-wings to Earth. A woman that has sex with Conan on the blood-splashed deck of her pirate ship, in front of her entire crew. A jeweled city filled with murderous Aztecs, surrounded by dinosaurs/dragons. What. is not. to love.

      From Red Nails - "You sulky slut!"

      My new favorite quote from literature.

        Just finished the new Harry Dresden Cold Days. Not life changing but I like his philosophy. He talks about learning to be predator not prey and not giving in to fear or doubt. Very primal in its way. Made me wonder if if Jim Butcher lived a primal lifestyle. Would not surprise me.

            Wheat Belly

            I discovered nutrition books and organic philosophy in the early '80s. One of the most important books I read, I can't remember the title, but it was all about how "food" is grown and processed, and how bad a lot of things are for us (fluoridation, vaccines, etc.)... it started me off as a young mom on thinking for myself, and reading labels, and cooking real food instead of using packaged crap.

            I am currently reading "You Can Buy Happiness" by Tammy Strobel.
