As the years went by and the kids multiplied the time for reading dwindled and dwindled. And I found that when I did snag a moment to settle in with a book or a paper my focus was hard to find. With all the responsibilities piled upon my plate in so many different categories, my down time was needed for decompressing and unwinding, I was too foggy to concentrate.
That said, I do find time to get a decent amount of reading in, though it's not as much as I'd like. Unfortunately I get more reading done for work (nutrition) than for play (I love me a good Jodi Picoult or Philippa Gregory). And often friends or family send articles I want to read and they literally pile up.
So I figured, in the interest of sharing some info I've read, putting it out there for all you to send over things worth reading, and making a public effort to read more, continue learning, push myself further, here are a few things I've read, been meaning to read, wanted to share:
A Natural Guide to Pregnancy and Postpartum Health by Dean Raffelock is a smart and well written book about functional medicine and how it relates to the woman in her years of fertility.
Your Extra-Virgin Olive Oil is Fake- Crazy article about olive oil and the mafia. Worth Reading!
Ray Peat- My friend Kelly sent me this link. This guy promotes a high fruit and protein diet...curious...
Absolute Beauty by Pratima Raichur- I saw Pratima as my Ayurvedic doctor after I had bar to help balance my life and skin. I've been using her products since along with some Ayurvedic herbs and I have to say they are amazing! I can't wait to delve into this book and learn more.
That's it for now, though the pile of books I have by my bed to read is higher than I'd like to admit since I read slower than I'd like to admit these days.
I'm always happy to add on (one day I'll be able to dive into them). Any suggestions?!?
