I’m a bit of both today! What do I believe in? Lots of things! Like: The effectiveness of Clearly Fresh Bags.
Remember my initial Clearly Fresh Bags review from 10 days ago? I have an update!
It involves the white nectarines seen to the immediate left of this text.

I placed my white nectarines and faith inside my sample of Clearly Fresh Bags 10 days ago, ate two of them this week, and left the rest to science experimentation. I took a few glimpses at the content of the bag throughout the week and the contents were still normal looking.
Today, I opened up the bag and found:
2 of them had spoiled
But the other two were perfectly fresh and edible! Not too soft, not too firm, and no wrinkling.
Some considerations: 1-) There was some moisture inside the bag. It’s been hot + humid and there’s no AC in our house. 2-) I have NO IDEA when the rotten two were picked, if they were from the same tree, truck load, etc. 3-) I don’t know how well the other two were handled; If they had bruises, blemishes, etc. But considering the two of them lasted tens days after buying them at the store during warm weather, I believe in the effectiveness of Clearly Fresh Bags. One last consideration: I didn’t do a comparison test with a regular storage bag. So, I don’t know if I would have gotten identical or similar results. I’ll have to try that with my other samples.
I cut the remaining good white nectarines up to be enjoyed as snacks.
I’m not a fan of extra warm fruit, so into the fridge it went.
What don’t I believe in? Quite a few things, but today, I lost faith in this gluten-free, grain-free bread experiment:
Even with an all-star lineup of ingredients they still failed to deliver.
Not even freshly ground chia seeds could save the day!
They were borderline edible if you REALLY want a gluten-free, grain-free bread, but not worth settling for, in my opinion. So: I’m not going to share the disaster recipe with you, but if you can’t live without it and are dying to know, just e-mail me and I’ll give it to you. I don’t want to lead anyone astray with this flop unless they accept that they aren’t that fabulous and want them anyway, lol.
What do you believe in today? Or what have you lost faith in lately?
I’m putting a lot of faith in a prescription that I don’t really want to take! I’m still battling this sinus and/or allergy problem. My newest symptom: My ears feel like they need to “pop.” I know that’s definitely my sinuses because I’ve had this symptom before, but not in the past 7 or 8 years. How lucky am I! LOL The reason this happens is that there’s a little connective thingie (scientific term) between your nose and ear and when it’s inflamed or infected, liquid gets trapped in there and all that pleasant stuff. I’m on day 5 of my antibiotic (cipro), so the infection is probably stepping up its game to stay alive and stuff, but my immune system with the help of the antibiotic aren’t having any of that! Infection: You are going down! I asked it nicely to leave, but diplomacy failed. So, I went to war and brought in the allies. The great sinus saga continues…
