Hey, check this out!! http://www.petalumaeggfarm.com/index.html
Whiles I am researching the supplements you sent me, I decided to research my breakfast too!! Can you believe I get this quality of egg at Safeway?!
I made the dubious choice a month or two ago to watch a video about factory farming (pork, beef, poultry, eggs, dairy and seafood). It was seven minutes long and I was crying freely about 15 seconds in. I have always believed that if you eat meat you should be able to stomach that it involves death, and be able to look that squarely in the eye. Well, I must tell you: it wasn’t their deaths but their lives that actually managed to shock and profoundly dismay me. I steeled myself and watched every horrifying second. (As an aside, I don’t see how anyone who is a vegetarian for ethical reasons can eat factory dairy. My god, those poor beasts. I am choking up right now just thinking of it.)
In the following weeks, I did struggle a bit with what to do. I know I tend to not flourish when there’s a lot of complex carb content to my diet, and that seems compulsory for vegans. I also happen to know some rather sallow vegans (though the Oh She Glows blog DOES live up to its name!!) as well as a number of people who, after 7-12 years of vegetarian habits, began incorporating animal protein for health reasons.
For all these reasons, I am so thrilled I can get eggs of this quality two blocks from my house. Now it’s time to find a dairy and meat source. I think the key to not breaking the bank is portion size and an emphasis on fruits and vegetables.
My friend Eileen (you remember her!) said it perfectly the other day: “we shouldn’t be asking why the good organic and well-raised food is so expensive. We should be asking why the other stuff is so cheap.” Yeah, well, that video (www.meatvideo.com) set me straight on that!
Love you loads! Thanks again for the much-needed support in turning my health around! <3

Aha!! You smart lady you!!! I hadn't gotten to that one yet in my research.
So as per your instructions, today I shall take only the Super B Complex, the biotin, the Folic Acid and the sublingual B12. That's all the high potency Bs. Tomorrow will be day 3. Shall I do the Bs alone tomorrow to get the feel of them since I botched the job yesterday by taking quite a variety in the AM?

Take a look at the CLA I sent you. (I think I sent some). It is conjugated linoleic acid which is the active ingredient in Flax and Chia seeds.
