Why You're Not Losing Weight When you think about your health, you’re probably not fretting over the millions of microbes that line your colon. But 2013 has been the Year Of The Gut, with scientific breakthroughs linking bacterial composition to all kinds of Western diseases, including asthma, depression, and colitis. The science is far from prescriptive yet, but diet has already emerged as a major influencer of healthy stomach bugs. (I should know: I got my gut colonies examined for a Prevention feature, and what I found out completely changed my diet.) This week, two new studies published in Nature found that gut composition isn’t just integral to your health—it might even be influencing your weight. The first study compared the gut microbiota, or bacterial makeup, of 292 Danes. Mock Tuna Salad (Featured atop a 'tater-chip) A couple weeks ago I saw this Mock Tuna Salad recipe recommended on someone's blog (whose blog it was now eludes me though), so I thought, Hey, Self, that'd be something yummy to make for lunches for the week, Self. So Self made a batch of "Tuna" Salad and was knocked off her feet by it. But then Self realized that she'd never actually tasted *real* tuna salad before (*gasps of shock and horror*) so she wasn't actually sure it *tasted* like real tuna salad, though it certainly did *smell* like it and reminded her of her mom and her family dog Lucy (whom she was convinced was half-cat since she had a fiendish love of tuna). Anyways, Self tried to figure out how to get an accurate read on how tuna-esque the mock-tuna salad actually was, and it dawned on her she could save a wee bit for her fellow when he was in town for the weekend. This was a difficult task, as Self kept whittling down the quantity of "tuna" salad left, because it was *that* good.
Beauty by Arielle: natural Since I began blogging about natural products, you may have seen me refer to EWG and GoodGuide ratings. I talked about them a little in my guide to natural products post but I thought it would be better to do a full explanation for y'all. When I refer to "ratings" I'm talking about how toxic a product is to your health. Currently, I use EWG's Skin Deep and GoodGuide's databases to determine if a product is "safe." I research every single product I purchase through these websites.

A designer that has her stuff on Etsy, Allison Patrick of the 3R’s Blog (Reduce, Reuse, Redecorate – 30 projects in 30 weeks) has created some pretty cool pendant shades that are pretty representative of the beautiful shape of the artichoke. But – the shade is made of recycled pages from books and magazines! Allison’s lamps are very cool, they remind me of the decoupage projects my mom would do with us as a kid. Just recently she got featured on Fab.com, and that has pushed her work sky high! Allison’s got a pretty awesome story with her luminaire design business (which is called Zipper 8 Design, by the way) – she graduated with her Masters, and like many people, she found herself with lots of time and no job.
