    When I lived in a somewhat unsafe neighborhood, I preferred to walk around 5-7pm. Lots of people, eyes everywhere.

    Thanks, I think I'll also use Knox for sweets and use up the Great Lakes in savory foods. I like the Great Lakes green canister to mix in smoothies, so I'll keep that up too. All of this is trying to...

    So angry!!!

    Yeah, the daycares here that provide food have similar requirements. Plenty of refined carbs, some fruit & veg, very little fat or protein.

    A general doctor's note helps. My pediatrician wrote...

    I did bloom it first, and it started smelling right away. I hoped the pureed strawberries would take away the smell, but sadly no.

    Going to a BBQ with bacon burgers & bringing caprese salad to share.

    If I have time I might make strawberry, blueberry & coconut gelatin, since I'm dabbling in gelatin desserts these days.

    I've been lucky to have had some great doctors who do believe in healing instead of medicating, but I know that's not the norm. Also, think of weight watchers, Jenny Craig, supplement companies which...

    Awesome, thanks! I might try with coconut milk too; that sounds like a delicious combo. Wonder if I have to increase the gelatin to make it extra firm?

    I also interpreted this as size, not weight. As written, the bag was measured (not weighed) and it was within size limit (not weight limit). Then she discussed girth AND weight of oversized...

    It helps me to have gratitude. The cow who produced the meat in my lunch today died so that I could be nourished. I respect and am grateful for that animal. I say thanks and that helps with any guilt...

    Educating the public on better food choices and how to live a healthy life is way different than insulting people for being fat. Although in this country, it is likely that healthy whole grains and...

    Sounds like you cook some great food. Maybe cook a little extra so it's easy to take for lunch, and have cut up fruit & hard boiled eggs in the fridge. Making healthy food available and EASY is key.
