    FYI- I make homemade noodles that I roll and cut myself using this:
    Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour - No Compromise

    I think, and my daughter agrees, they taste just like my glutenous ones.

      • Aunt has been trying to get Grandma to discard gluten for a year. The woman is 75 years old. I don't think she's interested at this point. But I have been looking at ways to make her noodles gluten free for the future, but not now as I don't want to insult her. She always makes an extra batch of chicken and noodles for me to take home. I puffy<3 her.

        • No one is here with me at work. So I'm watching Hungry For Change on Amazon. I hear it's good. It's about food additives and the hidden ways manufacturers get you hooked on their food.

            • Didn't get to watch the video last week, so I'm watching it today. I was released to go home early and I was using my last hour at work to watch this video, so I'm watching today instead. I love the zoo analogy given by one of the authors that speaks.

              That said, I can't wait til January 1.

              • Oh. My. GOD. I just realized why exercising but not changing diet doesn't work for fat loss.

                According to this movie, when we eat crap food (full of toxins), our body produces fat cells to surround those toxins. When we start working out to burn fat cells, we free those toxins, which then have to be reabsorbed into fat cells. But flushing and cleaning our bodies with healthy foods and cleansing foods (like gelatinous foods - like aloe and chia seeds) helps to clean our livers and our bodies allowing these toxins to be flushed instead of reabsorbed by the body.

                That is over simplified, but seriously mind-blowing for me. I need to find some aloe and chia!

                  • Now it's pushing juicing as a solution... :-| not sure I'm on board with that, but I guess if it gets people to eat their vegetables when they normally wouldn't, so be it. I'd be game for trying it, but there's an investment that's required (juicer) and I'm NOT game for that. lol

                      That was my email address in college - gijenn9739 (which was the last 4 of my social security number plus my four digit birthdate - not the year - the month/day). I later realized just how cheesy it was and ditched it. lol

                        • This video is reinforcing my desires to eat properly. I want Brad and everyone I love to watch it. And, it's caused me to google juicers. lol I think I could help Brad by providing him with juice b/c he eats ZERO veggies. Zero.

                          • Dear Self -

                            At what point does enough become enough? At what point in marathon training will you FINALLY get your shit together and fix the nutritional equation? What long run distance are you no longer willing to sacrifice for a sugary death bomb? Or a gluten death bomb? At what freaking point?

                            Today you were unable to complete a single mile due to the inflammation in your body. Not even ONE MILE! Seriously! It's time to get your shit together.

                            You've blamed the shoes. That's apparently wasn't the case. You blamed the running surface... well, you've now run on multiple different treadmills and various roads and the pain is still there. You've blamed a pinched nerve... you went to Dr. Lake and she "fixed" it... no more excuses! The problem is EVIDENT! You need to fix your damn diet!

                            You can't run. You can't fit into your pants anymore. You've gained 20 lbs. It's time to get it together.

                            The pleasure you may seem to get from a non-nutritive meal/treat does NOT outweigh the remorse you feel as soon as you climb on that treadmill and cannot run. The pleasure does NOT outweigh the remorse you feel when you can't sit in your size 12 jeans. The pleasure does NOT outweigh the grief you feel when you see that number on the scale that you worked so hard to fall below. Clothes no longer hide the weight gain either.

                            It's time to stop this madness. Just stop. I'm not trying to berate you or fat shame you or beat you down. I'm trying to get it through your thick skull that this isn't working and you KNOW it isn't working. You KNOW you need to eat paleo to feel your best. You know it b/c you've lived it!

                            I love running half marathons and all those training runs with you... but I can't do it if you don't get yourself together. You can't keep up anymore. You can't go the distance with me anymore. Something has to change. I miss being able to run. Let's fix this.

                            <3, Self.

                            ***

                            Starting right after Christmas - 21 day sugar detox (for athletes) until January 1. Then Whole30 til the afternoon of March 23rd.

                            • I just got called for an interview for the Staff Action Specialist position I applied for. Oy... so freaking out right now.


                              And I've got 500 pages to my journal...

                              • While I would agree that inflammation/ inflammatory pain is the root cause, I'd say their theory is fluff. What I've actually noted with my n=1 experimentation is that inflammation can last far longer in the body than the offending food. The body reacts in such a way as to wall off the offending food, but not with fat cells. It does it with white blood cells and phagocytes. When white blood cells kick into action, so does inflammation, or pressure and heat to drive out the offending article. If this happens long enough, the nearby fats cells load up with inflammatory solution to help keep the threat at bay semi-permanently. I theorize that people get sick more often while eating crappily because the body already has all the white blood cells occupied, and thus can send none, or very few, after the germ, because it views the offending food item as a more powerful and dangerous enemy. It takes the body quite a while to let go of the phagocytes that take care of the offending food item. In some cases, it can pass in a matter of hours. The more I deal with my allergy, the more I theorize that some of this inflammation has been in place for a VERY long time, and the body has come to recognize it as a constant defense, like a wall, and is hesitant to tear it down, so it would take much longer.
                                I realize that is grotesquely oversimplified, but that's a short version of what seems to be happening in my body.
                                And, as to juicing, I'd say don't bother. It takes out good stuff that the body needs, leaving pure simple carbs and a few vitamins that may or may not oxidize before he can drink it. There has GOT to be some veggie prep the man will eat. If it takes cheese, then give him the cheese as a crutch. You don't hafta eat it just because he does.
                                Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
