Costco v Target v Amazon

May the 4th be with you I let my Costco membership lapse because my mother in law is a member and takes me with her from time to time to stock up. While there are a few things that I think are worth going to Costco to get in bulk, I began to wonder if Target or Amazon’s prices were comparable. So I did some old fashioned research and tried my best to compare apples to apples to see if the extra trip to Costco was worth […]

I Said A Hip, Hop

On Monday night, Claire organized a group of us to try a new hip hop dance class in a dance studio downtown. I was a dancer growing up, but my focus was on tap, jazz, and ballet, which have a lot of similarities. Hip hop is a tooooootally different ball game! Needless to say, we were all quite a bit nervous! Our instructor was Edna-James, who told us right away that she was 68 years old and has been teaching hip hop for decades. She did a few […]

Change Your Diet; Change Your Microbiome

If whatever gut flora enterotype we are could play an important role in our risk of developing chronic diet-associated diseases (see What’s Your Gut Microbiome Enterotype?), can we alter our gut microbiome by altering our diet? Yes. Indeed, diet can rapidly and reproducibly alter the bacteria in our gut, as I discuss in my video How to Change Your Enterotype. Concern has been growing that recent lifestyle trends––most notably the high-fat and high-sugar “Western diet”––have altered the composition and activity of our resident gut flora. “Such diet-induced changes […]

Where The Green Grass Sorta Grows

Everything is blooming!! I saw a funny quote on Hot Yoga Cville’s Instagram the other day: “Getting out of bed would be 10x easier if there was a Caribbean ocean and 85 degree weather waiting outside for you.” SO TRUE. Happy spring day, I love you. Our grass is looking VIBRANT! The front yard looks great. But in the back, it’s still patchy. We think the hill that was created during the patio process is just too steep to hold water. Thomas is workin’ hard on it […]

All The Pretty Choices

I am brain dumping on the topic of choices today. I have come to realize how much I like thinking, planning, and talking about life. And the millions of choices, big and small, we all get to make each day. There is no class in school about being a human, being an adult, or about living life. We are a diverse planet and one size would not fit all. Life is chaotic and different for every person, yet my brain seeks order and rules. I have always been […]

What’s Your Enterotype?

The human gut has “a diverse collection of microorganisms making up some 1,000 species, with each individual presenting with their own unique collection of species.” But it wasn’t known whether this variation is on a continuum or if people cluster into specific classifiable types until a famous study analyzed the gut flora of people across multiple countries and continents. The researchers identified three so-called enterotypes. It’s pretty amazing that with so many hundreds of types of bacteria that people would settle into just one of three categories. […]
