  • I had to call into work sick today because I ate something I'm allergic to yesterday. I narrowed it down to either the homemade cupcake (yellow cake with chocolate frosting, no way in hell was I turning that down) or hot dogs my co-worker brought as her half of lunch (my half was chili.) Upon cross-examining her, I discovered that she uses shortening in her baked goods because it's "healthier than butter." Mind you, my sole confirmed food allergy is cottonseed oil. So, in her misguided attempt to make a cupcake healthier (WTF? Crisco is healthier than butter?! Even in the CW world that doesn't fly!), I came down with the migraine from hell.

      Honestly. It's true, anything but that terrible saturated fat.

      I have to ask a gormet chef (25$ brunch meal) to make my omlette and use real butter. Then he reminds me what's healthier. I lol'd.

      • I love my friend, but we are polar opposites when it comes to nutrition.

        Yesterday, she was talking about how bringing her lunch was much better because then she didn't stop for fast food. I can agree with that, and I had my little cooler sitting next to me, filled with boiled eggs, green olives, a couple of dill pickles and an apple. I parked it right next to the bag of pork rinds.

        She, on the other hand, passed on the PopTarts because the calorie count was too high and decided to bring rice cakes, thinking they would be more filling. Um... no. A short time later, she was complaining about how she was hungry again, which isn't surprising considering she had rice cakes and flavored coffee all day. Then she said she had brought some greek yogurt too. I mentioned that the yogurt might help with her hunger, since fat is satiating. "Oh, no, I got the fat free!"

          But Crisco was trans-fats, last I checked (admittedly several years ago.)

            LOL!

            I remember a little story about a writer who'd put up little post-it notes to remind her about plot points, and had to explain why one said, "Elizabeth must die."

            • I don't normally get mad at CW, but this might be more of a GoTD.

              "Well I certainly hit the doozy this time. Body aches, body chills, sore throat, congestion everywhere congestion is possible, runny nose, ear ache, and to top it all off headaches. In summary......goodnight!"

              This IDIOT keeps eating crappy whole grains and wonders why she is sick, LOL.

              Poor girl could use some fish oil and vitamin d. But no, her boyfriend is an organic fat hating vegetarian that only believes in olive oil.

              • I have to listen to my mildly (almost non-existent) diabetic co-worker every day, talking about how he chose rye bread for his breakfast instead of white because it's a "good" bread compared to the others and "oh the Tim Horton's oatmeal is good for me - my doctor says so!"

                Then he drinks his 3rd Coke Zero of the day...

                • I brought one of my delicious almond flour cookie bars (made with farm eggs and icelandic butter) to my nephew. He was soooooo excited to get it and wanted to eat it right away but my sister insisted he wait til after supper. What did he have for supper you ask? Two bowls of raisin bran cereal. *DOH!*

                    Have a recipe for it? And I have a confession to make. I really miss homemade noodles. I am of Italian heritage and I used to make my own whole grain wheat, egg noodles served with roasted tomato sauce and meatballs. To die for. And spaghetti squash just doesn't cut it. Anyone suffer and what do you do about it?

                    I am really not one of those "I am trying to replace the lost grains with primal subs" kind of person. I am just missing this one thing and I think I could get the hubby eating more primal (except for his weekend morning bowl of sugar and processed liquid plastic and the fact that 22 years in the Navy cured him forever of roast).

                    Any ideas?

                      I just discovered zucchini "noodles" and can't wait to make for my husband with really meaty and chunky spaghetti sauce! The youtube video I watched showed that you use a mandolin on a small Juliann setting to make long thin "noodles." Cut on all four sides with peel on, but stop before you get to the seeds. Then she sautéed in a pan with a little olive oil. I also saw another entry that said you could steam the veggie pasta and then add your sauce. It said to boil it will add too much water content. Anyway, this is my next pasta hope because my family was not too fond of the spaghetti squash. If anyone has tried this, was it good?
                      It makes me sad that people are trying hard to do the right thing but failing because they have the wrong information.
                      Without question, bacon is the most interesting meat in the world, and if it were capable of original thought, we wouldn't even be having an election this November in America. We would simply appoint bacon as our forever leader and live dutifully under its rule.

                        Sorry, Annie. I've yet to find anything that yields the satisfying "chew" you get with egg noodles. You can get close to flour-and-water noodles with stuff like rice and such, but real, authentic, fresh egg-and-flour noodles -- I've yet to find a substitute. The mouthfeel just isn't the same. The closest I can think something come to it is mochi or sweet rice dough. It has a good, resistant "chew". I've only found it in Asian restaurants and stores, though. Never made it on my own.

                        Have you tried making your own with rice flour or some sort of gluten-free flour?

                            That's what I do. I love it. Didn't care for the spag squash, but zuke and carrot noodles are my best friends with spag sauce. Saute with butter or olive oil and LOTS of garlic until bendy enough for noodles.
