Reading… Dirty Genes. Famous in the health circles for the information he provides on the MTHFR gene mutation, in this book Dr. Ben Lynch addresses seven different mutations that cause most health problems. He breaks down the issues the mutations cause and provides an action plan. This is a fascinating book and makes the science very accessible. Supporting methylation has improved my health dramatically. I highly recommend this for anyone that wants to be healthier, struggles with not feeling well, or loves someone with health issues.
Watching… Alias Grace. Like The Handmaid’s Tale, this is based on a book by Margaret Atwood. This was not my favorite, but it was mildly intriguing. It reminded me a bit of the Lizzie Borden story. Set in 19th century Canada, a heinous crime has been committed and Grace has been prosecuted for it. You don’t know if she’s a homicidal mastermind or was just at the wrong place at the wrong time.
Playing… HQ. I may be a latecomer to this game. If you are unfamiliar with it, it’s a live trivia game which usually consists of 12 questions. There is a cash prize that’s split among the players that successfully answer all the questions. I usually miss the answer to the fourth or fifth question. If you sign up using referral code “okcsus,” I’ll get an extra life.
Eating… Trader Joe’s Butternut Squash Zig Zags. In an effort to regularly eat a “crap ton of vegetables,” I have been trying to expand my veggie repertoire. I was excited to discover these zig zags while grocery shopping the other day. I steamed them and they turned out really well. Next time, I think I’ll try roasting them.
Wanting… a Sideclick Remote. When watching TV in the bedroom, I pretty much exclusively watch it using the Fire Stick. It requires turning on the TV and controlling the volume with the TV remote and then selecting programing with the Fire remote. One of the remotes invariably gets lost in the covers. I was pleased to discover that someone has created a device that attaches to the Fire remote and controls the television.
