Re: Things I am currently struggling with

1. Eating a healthy breakfast. I am just not hungry until I get to work, and then I usually dive right in (so what I eat needs to be inhaled quickly and sometimes in a meeting or while I'm on my way to someone's desk). I know I've posted about it [more]

I saw a recipe for granola in my cookbook today "Against All Grains - Meals Made Simple" by Danielle Walker. Maybe this will help with your issue. This is the nut-free version (it uses seeds) that she designed for those with nut allergies. [more]

Re: Niacin

There is also value in looking at the *type* of LDL particles - large and fluffy or small and dense. It's the proponderence of small, dense particles that contribute to artheroscerlosis. Fluffy LDL is far healthier. As it's a special test, you have [more]

Re: Horse Insurance

The current stable has had several horses die that were cremated so I don't believe onsite burial is an option. As for future farms, it would be a good question to ask.

Re: Horse Insurance

Did you check with the stable where you currently board, or with potential retirement farms, if on-site burial is an option? May be more or less viable, depending on size and commercial factor of the facility.
