torn from 'whole living' this month
I am *trying* to be better about using my magazines and then moving them along -- either to recycling or the library (if they are still pretty much intact) so that they won't pile up so much. I use the clippings in my various little notebooks or files. Here's what I saved this month . . .
:: I want to make this dark chocolate bark with sea salt and pistachios. Yum!
:: I loved this piece on mindful eating--such a good reminder of slowing down and enjoying your food. Very relevant to what I'm doing right now with the weight loss.
:: I'm definitely trying these "recipes" for homemade perfumes. Just blend essential oils as listed into jojoba oil and dab on pulse points. I'm really excited to try this. I'll blog it when I do.
:: I'm ready for some recommendations for natural deodorants. I'm getting tired of making my own and am on the lookout for a new one. I'm especially interested in the one mentioned that only has to be applied once every few days. That would suit me perfectly.
Also clipped: book recommendations to file for later and a small piece on morning rituals, which I'll take into my health notebook.
Do you clip magazine articles? Do they end up being useful or just contributing to paper clutter? I'm trying very hard to only clip what I truly find useful then to distribute it to where it belongs pretty soon. The recipes for Thanksgiving side dishes look delicious to me, but they are only aspirational, not something I would realistically make, so I did not cut them out.
