|Recipes||Need something in my oatmeal..||Feb 07 2010
If it's made with water it's really bland. You could, if you want, add a pinch of salt. Or mix stuff in, like the other people already suggested. I personally like mixing in 1/2 cup of cottage cheese and then lot's of fruit.
|Health & Support||Ammenorrhea linked to palm/hand color?||Jan 21 2010
Actually, for me, I ate too many carrots. My doctor actually told me to stop having so many, and since I've cut back, my hands are getting less yellowy/orange. And no, I don't remember what shade my hands were 3+ years ago, before I stopped having my period. Probably normal pinkish (as that was when I wasn't too keen on carrots...or any veggies really)
|Foods||Peanut Butter brands||Jan 21 2010
I like just plain old PB. Just peanuts and a bit of salt. Usually I get the Natural Store Brand kind (yay for it being less expensive than fancy Smuckers!) Nomnomnomnomnom...
|Health & Support||Ammenorrhea linked to palm/hand color?||Jan 21 2010
I used to have amenorrhea, but recently I started having my period again. My hands were, and still are, orangey/yellow.

|Weight Gain||Habits?||Sep 04 2009
I use the same tea/coffee mug all the time.
I prefer to use certain utensils. The others just don't feel right in my hands.
I have at least one apple everyday. Usually with breakfast.
I could challenge the mug and utensil thing. But I love my apples too much to change that habit.

I barely exercised for the past three days. Hah! And, I didn't magically turn into a whale from not execising as much.
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
