• Hello and happy Friday! Here we go with another edition of What I’m Loving Lately!

    Roo Moccasins – We are loving these Roo Moccasins from Soft Star Shoes. The company recently offered to send Quinn a pair and we already want to order more! Of course, they are adorable, but what’s really fun about them is that you can DESIGN them online. It was neat picking out the colors and style accents for Quinn’s pair. I also love that these moccasins are easy to put on his tiny baby feet. Quinn has a few pairs of shoes, but we can never get them on quite right (or it takes us forever). These ones just slip on and they are great for walking, standing, and keeping his feet warm.

    12 All-Natural Beauty Products You Need to Shop at Whole Foods – Some of these sound really great. I’m definitely going to look for a few of them the next time I’m at Whole Foods!

    A Guide to Hashtags, Every Day of the Week – This was really interesting! I didn’t realize there are so many trending topics that pop up week after week. Very cool.

    Single Serving Chocolate Brownie – I love this recipe. I use all-purpose flour, and it turns out great!

    19 Things Only South Shore Massachusetts Natives Can Understand – We’re still new to the South Shore, but I could relate to a lot of these. We have so much love for the South Shore. We’re never leaving.

    Revolution Health Radio podcast about Low-Dose Naltrexone – Chris Kresser (my boyfriend – although, he doesn’t know it) talks about Low-Dose Naltrexone (LDN) (originally used as a drug for heroin withdrawal) as a treatment for autoimmune disease– primarily cancer, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, fibromyalgia, and autism. There’s not a lot of research out there about LDN and all of it is based on short-term use, but what exists is very promising. One Crohn’s study had over a 70% remission rate (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!). This is incredible. And there are very few documented side effects—just vivid dreams reported by some patients. Of course, I immediately asked my doctor about LDN as a treatment option, and he said he doesn’t use it because there’s not a lot of research. Meh. Even still, I wanted to put this on people’s radar!
