As you all know, I love trying new weird foods. Well, to be more accurate, this is a food that has been around for thousands of years but I had yet to try these intriguing Muscadine grapes.
Well, here's my verdict on them: they may be best kept on the vineyard to make wine. Too acidic (the corners of my mouth burned as soon as the juice hit them!) and a hassle to chew. They taste like Sangria though which I found semi-appealing.
I have decided to get into the Young Living Essential Oils. It's taken me a long time to finally purchase these oils but it was time to make the move and give them a whirl. Now, I realize that Gary Young is blacklisted all over Quackbusters or whatever that website is, and the dirt is quite extensive, but hey, you know what? I really like the oils.
Oh, and, don't forget, the BTD is all part of quackbusters as well. Though not really with dirt but more with your typical, "there is no evidence" or "there is no scientific proof"... blah blah blah. You know what? I AM the scientific proof. How's that for evidence?
A very good friend who has decided to go back to school has made the move to supplement her income by becoming a Melaleuca salesperson. In general, I like the company because it's heading people in the right direction. The company is trying to convert Tide and Cascade users to more natural means of housekeeping and keep our earth healthier than what is currently being done.
However, some of their products are not as natural as I'd get at the co-op (e.g. triclosan-based hand soap, corn syrup-based energy bars, etc.). And any multi-level marketing always seems a bit tedious to me. I like to feel free and not bound to anyone or anything as much as possible (especially now that I have a mortgage, haha). Becoming a "preferred customer" is one of those jedi mind tricks that we love to hate and can't help getting sucked into sometimes, but hey, the products are fun and useful and I feel good buying them. I mean, hey, my poor starving grad student friend is profiting off my purchases so that she can take her background in exercise science and dig deeper into the world of nutrition. How can that not feel good?
