I still read Glamour occasionally, and have a subscription to Marie Claire, but there really isn't a magazine (that I've found) aimed at young married women without children who have a career. Then again, I'm also the kind of girl that reads Wired, Popular Science, Popular Mechanics, and PCWorld, as well as several technical journals and Slashdot, so I'm not exactly a common demographic.
          I know I'm a few months late to the periodical party, but have you read BUST? It's my favorite ;0)

            No need for purchased bunny food--orchard or timothy hay available at all times and veggie scraps galore is all that's needed. There's no such thing as "too many veggies" when it comes to leafy stuff, though we limit starchies like carrots and sugary fruits. Wild bunnies eat grass and greens =). Pelleted food was made for putting weight on fryer rabbits quickly. Fat pet bunnies are no bueno!

                • I love this thread! Okay, I have one to add:
                  Overheard in this morning while waiting for Bar class to start(it's a ballet/isometric-movement-based class)

                  Receptionist: You know it's better to eat a donut for breakfast than nothing
                  Me: Um, all those sugar and carbs without any protein will hit your bloodstream like a sledgehammer and cause a big insulin spike--skipping a meal would cause your body less stress.
                  Receptionist: [withering look] Actually, I got that tip from Shape.

                      Well I was a raver back in the day, but that's another story!

                      Now I'm a knitter and crocheter. There's a great knitting site called Ravelry which is where I found out about MDA (on one of the off topic forums that doesn't talk about knitting at all!)

                        Hah. I read Shape regularly about five years ago -- I even had a subscription. I remember they had a "Sugar Diet" once. Because, see, you can have your cake and lose weight, too!!!! Isn't that awesome, grrlz????? OMG KIM KARDASHIAN!!!!

                        Ahem.

                        It was an entertaining diversion when I was on the treadmill (this was five years ago, after all), but after a while I got tired of the bullshit science studies, constant pandering to cosmetics and clothing, and celebrities I didn't care about. Can't say I miss it.

                          I would consider giving them an all greens diet, but the pellets are mostly just to help me not go completely broke. They're on Oxbow now, and they don't get a ton of it, just enough to keep their bellies full when the bank account gets low. It's hard taking care of the amount of animals I have on a college budget, but we manage. Besides, my largest rabbit, Rogue tends to be picky with greens. I have to be careful because if I give her something like parsley with dinner one night, she'll suddenly decide that it's all she wants to eat for two weeks. The pellets help balance her out a little bit, especially since she's the very opposite of fat, I struggle to keep her weight on. My other rabbit Bandit is a mini rex and tends to want to be fat, but he does well on the Oxbow food. You're right though, cheaper rabbit food does cause weight problems at least in the rex. I can't make Rogue gain weight at all, and I'm not sure if it's her breed (unknown) or what. She's very healthy and the vet doesn't think there's anything really wrong, she just burns though it faster. She's 9 lbs of lean rabbit muscle, and she likes to use it to tell you when you're doing something wrong! Ouch.

                          • My rabbit will eat any table scraps (we only feed him bunny friendly stuff)
                            Incomplete list below:


                            Bunny Safe Plants
                            Safe Cultivated Vegetables: Artichokes, Brussels Sprouts, Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery (chopped into small pieces - long strands in celery can choke a bunn - thanks, Lisa in Perth!), Chicory, Corn-on-the-Cob, Dandelion, Horseradish, Kales, Kohlrabi, Lucerne, Maize, Parsley, Strawberry, Spinach, Sunflowers, Strawberry and Raspberry Leaves.
                            Safe Herbs: Blackberry (general bunny tonic), Bramble, Mint, Parsley (another excellent general bunny tonic), Raspberry Leaves (general tonic), Rosemary, Sage, Strawberry Leaves, Thyme.
                            Safe Wild Plants: Bramble, Bindweed, Burnet, Butterbur, Cow Parsnip or Hogweed, Coltsfoot, Convolvulus, Chickweed, Geum, Goosegrass, Crosewort or Maywort, Dandelion, Dock (not seeding), Groundsel, Goutweed, Hawkweed, Heather, Hedgeparsley, Knapweed, Knotgrass, Lucerne, Mallow, Mustard, Nipplewort, Plaintain, Sea Spinach, Shepherd’s Purse, Sour Dock or Sorrel, Thistles, Trefoil, Vetches or Tares, Watercress, Yarrow.
                            A couple of warnings on wild plants: firstly, if you are going to feed your bunny wild plants, be sure that you definitely know for certain the type of plant you are choosing, as plants go by different common names in various parts of the world - best to err on the side of caution, and only feed plants which you know the names of for certain, or which you know for certain are bunny safe; secondly, be aware that, if you pick plants from public places, or any place where you personally have not grown them yourself, you must be absolutely certain that they have not been contaminated by pesticides or other chemicals - again, best to err on the side of caution.
                            Safe Flowers: Asters, Borage, Calendula, Carnations, Centaurea, Daisies, Galega, Geranium, Geum, Helenium, Hollyhock, Honesty, Lupins (not seeds), Mallow, Marguerites, Marigolds, Michaelmas Daisies, Nasturtium, Rose, Stocks, Sunflowers.
                            Safe Trees: wood prunings from fruit trees, with the exception of stone fruit trees (again also ensure they have not been sprayed with pesticides or chemicals), most deciduous trees (but not Oaks), Blackberry, Rose, Raspberry Canes (with all canes, beware of thorns, of course).
                            Hay (including grasses: Kentucky Blue Grass, Fescue, Timothy, Lucerne, Rye Grass, Yarrow), Dandelion (sparingly - a powerful diuretic).
                            Bread can be fed, but is not ideal and only dried bread, never fresh - no bread is ideal for bunnies, because of the yeast and the highly processed ingredients.

                            Dangerous for bunnies - avoid these:
                            Dangerous Cultivated Vegetables - always avoid: Cabbage, Lettuce, Mangold, Parsnips, Potato Tops, Swede Turnips, Tomato Leaves.

                            Dangerous House Plants: Arum Lilies, Bead Plant, Christmas Cherry, Cineraria, Daffodils and all bulb plants, Devil’s Ivy, Dieffenbachia, Fairy Primrose, Hedera, all Ivy, all Jasmines, Leopard Lily, Monstera (Fruit Salad Plant/Swiss Cheese Plant), Miltonia, Poinsettia, Pothos, Primula Obconica, all Primulas, Solanum, String of Beads, Tradescantia, Wandering Jew or Wandering Sailor, Winter Cherry, Zantedeschia.
                            Dangerous Flowers - always avoid: Acacia, Aconite, Antirrhinum, Arum, Anemone, Cineraria, Clover, Columbine, Daffodil, Dahlia, Delphinium, Feverfew, Gypsophila, Helleborus, Honeysuckle, Hyacinth, Iris, Jasmine, Larkspur, Lily of the Valley, Linarias, Lobelia, Love-in-a-Mist, Monkshood, Oxalis, all Poppies, Primroses, Primula Obconica, all Primulas, Snowdrop, Snowflake, Tulips, all bulbous plants, and all flowers which grow from bulbs, are poisonous.
                            Dangerous Trees - always avoid: most evergreen trees and shrubs, Acacia, Box, Elder, Beech, Gorse, acorns, seeds, Ivy, Laburnum, Oak, Flowering Plum Trees, all stone fruit trees, Snowberry.

                                Cabbage gives buns the runs! And makes them rather farty, too
