3. My Body is Not My Enemy by Phoenix Helix

Great posts, guys! Thank you!

Don’t forget: You must link back to this post in order to be featured. I’ve had posts that had enough clicks for a feature, but no link back. Sadness ensued. 

It’s time to share your posts!

Bloggers, use the linky tool on the bottom of this post to share your healthy living tips and posts. Non-bloggers, feel free to add a comment here with any ideas or thoughts you have to “thank” our bodies. Every week I will be featuring the most viewed posts so link-up your best ones. I will also be featuring my personal favorite posts on my facebook page throughout the week:

There are only 2 simple guidelines I’d like for you to follow:

1. Posts should be about healthy living. Keep in mind the mission of Thank Your Body. Some ideas:

Real food recipes
Exercise, yoga, and other fitness topics
Toxic-free living, all natural care products, healthy DIY, or other “green” tips
Homeopathic or other natural approaches to health and medicine
Inspirational or motivational posts on healthy living, etc.

Please NO:

Recipes using processed foods, refined sugar/flour, etc. (And we’re not real big on weight watchers, low-fat, calorie restrictive, or other “diet” foods here. Just real food.)
Product endorsements
Links to other blog carnivals
Extreme anything. (Health is about balance, not fads.)

2. Please link your posts back to THIS post. Linking back here helps build our little community by sending your readers to all of the other posts shared. If you don’t link back, your post will be deleted.

If you don’t not link back you cannot be featured!

That’s it!

Let’s get this party started!

NOTE: Due to an never-ending cesspool of spam, I have made the tough decision to close comments 14 days after the original posting of all posts. If you have a burning question or are looking for support in your journey to healthy living, please join the Thank Your Body Friends facebook page here.

    Thanks for hosting Robin! This week I’m sharing a confession of sorts: we eat store bought crackers! I share why I’m OK with this compromise and what our favorite healthy and frugal option is.

    And P.S. I made your chocolate-chocolate chip cookies last night and they rock!!! Going to go have some more right now….

    It’s so nice to see my self-love article was picked; it’s a topic close to my heart. This week I added a favorite healthy snack recipe (Juice Jello) and also a semi-controversial post: When Painkillers are GOOD for you. My hope is to bring some balance to the discussion of pain relief in the real food and alternative health community. Have a beautiful week, everyone.

    This is my first time linking to Thank Your Body Thursday and I’m excited to be a part of it. The post I’m sharing is about how to prioritize your organic selections at the market using the Environmental Working Group’s Dirty Dozen list. Basically, what to avoid if you can’t find or afford the organic version.
    Take care!

    A couple weeks ago I shared a post on the olive oil fridge test. It REALLY hit home with a lot of people, so we re-visited both the test and other ways of knowing whether or not your extra virgin olive oil has been watered down. Read the data for yourself and decide whether the test works!

    I also shared a really easy recipe for high protein, sweet & salty trail mix. Ditch the candy coated varieties at the store and make the homemade version, which boasts nearly as much protein as a serving of chicken!

    As always, thank you for hosting! Have a blessed day!

  35. This Woman Writes -- Carolyn Henderson

    When I was a younger woman, and menopause was something my mother was going through, I figured that, by the time I reached menopause age, there would be a lot more information out about it.

    Not. And it’s not as if there weren’t money for major drug corporations to make money off of us. Just those darn side effects messing things up.

    Anyway, my article this week is #59, the Ultimate Mother’s Day Gift, because for many of us moms, by the time we’re hitting menopause, with all its potential emotional side effects, we’re getting sideswiped by the empty nest syndrome as well, and this can make Mother’s Day challenging, to say the least.

    This article represents how I find joy in one of life’s most difficult transitions.
