If my potty mouth offends, excuse it. It’s my intentional rebellion against acceptable lexicon, but, if any young (under 18) ladies are reading this post, please, keep your mouth clean. Speaking of clean! I’ve gotten a lot of inquiries about how my vegetarian journey is going, and it’s great! I feel lighter (literally, weird side effect is that I’ve lost 4 pounds this week) and I sleep better. Besides fruits and vegetables, there are some go-to foods and herbal medicinals that keep ME healthy. Disclaimer: I’m in no way, shape or form, a healthcare professional. Just a journo who keeps…
