I finally got around to trying nutritional yeast. It took me a while to find some that is pure, gluten-free, and without added stuff. I was skeptical, but I knew my son liked some gluten-free casein-free macaroni and cheese that had it in it, so I knew we'd use it. I didn't think I'd like that weird vegetarian food, but I LOVE IT! It is great sprinkled on top of anything you'd put parmesan cheese on. It adds a lot of flavor, and cheese was something I've been missing. I don't like to use too much, it seems to me that less is more.
Also finally tried Lavilin, a natural deodorant. You have to avoid using anything else for a few days before trying it, so I bathed quite a bit more during that time than I usually get to. Then you just put a tiny bit of this on, and you only have to put it on again every few days. I'm not a stinky person, but it sure is nice to not have to think about it more than every few days.
I also discovered something about green tea that may, well it has, gotten me back to drinking it. L-theanine, also an ingredient in Tranquility base, helps you relax without making you drowsy (well, I've read on other sites that it can make you drowsy, but not a worry with green tea). I always wondered why I slept better and had more even moods when I drank green tea. It didn't make sense, since it has some caffeine. Now it makes sense. That extra bit of relaxation seems to really help me with my palpitations, therefore I have an easier time falling asleep. Hmmmm, something more to think about.
