Foods can be defined as Mucus Forming or Mucus Free. Beyond that, they can also be described as acid forming and acid free. The categories are aligned similarly but not exactly. Mucus forming or mucus free foods have to do with whether physical obstructions are created due to the mucusy paste...

I have been reading Mindless Eating and they mention the sedentary lifestyle.  We all know that watching too much TV can make you fat, but they say reading isn't much better, and then I got to thinking about writing.  Yikes.  Most professional writers spend several hours a day sitting...why aren't...
