    The "Vitamin Overload? 'Too Much of a Good Thing' May Be Bad for You" article.

    My doctor prescribed me vitamin D(3) pills after discovering my blood levels were extremely low. So I took one every morning for about 3 months. During those 3 months, I suffered from bouts of dizziness, heart palpitations and nausea ... never even putting 2 and 2 and thought it was just from being on the Pill.

    One day, I forgot to take my vitamin d and I felt fantastic! Imagine that. :P Now, I just have half a pill every other day, and I feel much better. - 3/15/2011   3:29:31 PM

    I enjoyed the "Fast Food Breakfasts", especially since we are driving to Texas and back in May, and will be forced to stop at fast food joints to save money, since gas prices are so high. I didn't know IHOP had any veggie omelet at all, haven't been there in a long time, and didn't know Starbucks had food besides baked goods either, good thing to keep in mind. - 3/14/2011   10:34:32 PM

    If you look closely on line you will find McD's oatmeal is not all that healthy. It has way more calories and sugar in it than anything you could ever make at home. I guess if you are really hard pressed and it was that or nothing, then I would eat it. But honestly, I can make a much better bowl of oatmeal and home and tote it with me on the run - 3/14/2011   12:10:48 PM

    PS: after my run and washing my dog, I did make that pasta!
    My man & 6yo boy both loved it.
    I substituted pasta for soba noodles coz we ran out of spaghetti!
    Now I soak in a warm bath! Ah! I deserve this good life!

    I am making the spinach, walnut & lentil pasta tonight ! I love the "oh She Glows Blog".
    The yoga poses in bed were cute, as a yoga practitioner I must say these are lovely gentle stretches that really calm the nervous system. - 3/14/2011   12:13:09 AM

    I enjoyed the healthy fast food breakfast options. Sometimes I have to eat out early in the morning and now I know what choices are better for me. - 3/13/2011   8:59:15 PM

    "America's Healthiest Fast-Food Breakfasts" article was interesting...Not much on fast-food joints, but sometimes I do find myself "on-the-run" and after reading the article, I know where and what to order. :-) - 3/13/2011   5:28:21 PM

    Checked out the nut balls and frittata recipes. Both sounded interesting. Was interested in the 'Doctor saving wife' story, but no time to watch a video, so didn't.

    Thanks for the variety of links! - 3/13/2011   3:36:15 PM

I spent forever with this today. Nuts and apricot balls DH has thyroid issues Apricots are supposed to help but you can only eat them so many ways This he will love.

    I liked the healthiest fast food breakfast article. I really like McDonald's oatmeal and was glad to see it made it on your list - 3/13/2011   10:36:12 AM

    I enjoyed the healthiest fast food breakfasts article. I've already had the western omlet sandwich at Subway, the items at Denny's, IHOP and Panera Bread. Guess the only option that is available in my town that I haven't tried is McDonald's oatmeal. I eat oatmeal almost every day at home and think I do it better for fewer calories. - 3/13/2011   7:33:55 AM
