@lioness the one I mentioned is by Michael Pollan. The correct title is "In Defense of Food".

The book "In Defense of Real Food" is eye opening also.

3 days ago · "Brain Fog" in Caregivers

Hi all,
Just giving an update on my husband's "brain fog" journey. We saw a speech therapist today that specializes in "chemo brain", since it looks like his cognition issues are a result of the combo of his Hep C anti-virals, chemo and anti-rejection meds. We had never considered speech therapy for brain issues before, but a couple people mentioned it. The therapist was very optimistic that she will be able to develop a plan to help him. We were so excited! He will have a fairly intensive plan to begin, meeting 2-3 times a week, and taper off. I will keep you updated!

@rosemarya I've seen the online version. I like having the book since for me it's easier for reading.

@hopeful33250 the wedding is in May. It will be towards the middle of the park, so just the beautiful mountains as the backdrop.

@contentandwell I will! Reading through the book, the recipes look great and simple.

@jakedduck1 that's so true! Lol They wanted a destination type wedding and had been looking at the West coast. Our son mentioned he preferred a dessert type location and this what he picked. It was a surprise to all of us!
