    The story about vegetables bummed me out. I know that for several people, getting fresh fruits and vegetables is hard because of poverty and lack of access. That said... MOST PEOPLE CAN GET VEGGIES. Why don't people GET IT yet??? - 1/3/2011   4:16:37 PM

    Most interesting for me: Exercise Makes You Less Anxious". Least Useful: "Best Recipes of 2010"--no nutritional information. There must be better sources of good recipes that include nutrition information which would make the recipes much more useful. They sounded good, but I figured out the calorie count for one of them( which took awhile !)and the results convinced me I didn't want to add it to my meals--would have been nice to know upfront. - 1/3/2011   8:15:16 AM

    I like the homemade spa treatments with leftovers. I am definately going to try some of those including the potato trick for the bags under my eyes!
    Happy New Year. - 1/3/2011   3:52:46 AM

    I liked both the story about worry and the one about anxiety as I definitely have too much of both! - 1/2/2011   2:06:11 PM

    Definitely enjoyed "Why Exercise Makes You Less Anxious", but it's also nice how items like "Chickpea and Carrot Crockpot Soup" inspire me to be a little more creative in the kitchen. In my soup for today I felt more comfortable putting together things I normally wouldn't have - particularly different veggie varieties. Yum! - 1/2/2011   12:56:41 PM

    I thought the rat-exercise experiment (the "less anxious" article) was fascinating. I can tell that exercise is good for me, from my own experience, but learning about the science behind it is really interesting, too. I love science. - 1/2/2011   12:28:58 PM
    I really got a lot out of 'Why Exercise Makes You Less Anxious.' Scientific proof of how exercise changes your body's reaction to stress. - 1/2/2011   11:36:41 AM
