Rainbow Jelly Shooter Its been a whirlwind at the test kitchen. The book is progressing (crossing fingers that it is going to press in early December!) , we have been working on a little something (three little somethings, actually) for, and about a million more actions items cropping up here and there, many of which have not received appropriate attention and are currently housed in a bin marked "anxiety provoking". One of the highlights of our week was a lovely chat with Erin over at, who mentioned that they were hosting a Double Rainbow Week, which sounded like such fun!

(And it IS - featured items include double rainbow . . . donuts! Cookie pops! Bring it on!) So, when the weekend rolled around, rather than trolling cocktail books for jelly shot inspiration, we decided it was high time for a bit of unfettered f-u-n . . . I love the "rainbow" gelatin technique - borrowed from the popular recipe for kids' finger gelatin. Cheers, Michelle Red Layer. Tropical Tango. Original V-8 Recipe. Parsley adds color and aids digestion of the foods we eat and acts to prevent gas and bloating.

Thyroid disorders can affect your weight, mood, energy, cholesterol, bowel problems and more. The thyroid gland is one of the largest endocrine glands and is found in the neck. The thyroid gland has a very important role in our body: it controls how quickly the body uses energy, makes proteins, and controls how sensitive the body is to other hormones.

Common thyroid disorders are hyperthyroidism, or overactive thyroid, and hypothyroidism, which is the underproduction of the thyroid hormones. When I researched the subject of how to maintain the thyroid in top condition, I’ve seen that radishes and radish juice came at the top of the list regarding balancing the activity of the thyroid gland.

One of the problems that I was facing when researching this subject was how much and how long to take this tonic. Hypothyroid drink. Detox Smoothie « Drinks. Yep, that’s a healthy green smoothie?
