I missed my four year blogversary!
My blog has existed since August 2012. I would have celebrated sooner, but August 2016 blew right past me. (Probably because I was mired in a deep and longstanding depression, which I thought I was starting to come out of, but which is actually back in full force and only lifted temporarily.) As of this writing, there are 242 posts. I don’t think I hit my stride until sometime mid-2013, but there are a couple of gems going back as far as September 2012.
For those of you who found me a few years into my
blathering blogging, and since new people stumble
upon my blog every week, I thought it would be nice to start the new year by
sharing a selection of my personal favorite posts for those of you who have
only recently tuned in, as well as for any of you who are wondering what the
“must read” posts are. (In my opinion, anyway.) I tried to purge all my low
carb and keto-related anger in a few posts prior to the close of 2016 so that I could start 2017
on a more positive note. I can’t promise I won’t post any more rants in the
future (I think we can all agree I’m not physically capable of holding it in),
but I am going to try to stick to things that are a little more scientific, as well as posting tips and insights that are helpful for following these types of diets in the real world.
With no further ado, here are my top ten favorites, in no particular order, except that the first one is probably nearest and dearest to my heart and resonates with me, personally, the most deeply:
