  • Oh, I'm sure I can find out how to do the basal body temp test. I bought a thermometer today(basal type). I've lost hair all over:">
  • Hi, powerlifter! "Detox" doesn't have any meaning for me, either, but it's become part of the vocabulary:-D I thought if I got heavily into the autoimmune disorder stuff, I would chase everyone away. I eat lots of seaweed(mostly dulse-- I love it). …
  • Hi, sweet! I'm sorry I babbled like that. In answer to your question, I binged on high-fat, high-sugar stuff. Processed, of course, just to make things worse. I'm embarrassed to say what I ate. Not to make excuses, but the hair loss and arthritis fl…

    in My dog passed away Comment by TomsMom
  • I'm surprised no one has given advise yet, because these folks are really, really good when it comes to stress advice. Going for grains, fats and sugars is pretty natural when you are under stress. Of course, it's the worst thing to eat at this time…
  • (I can't get my HTML crap to work, so nothing is quoted as I meant.) ""Not accepted" isn't the same as "banned" in this context?" Nope. That is why there are two different words. "There were some mildly raunchy commercials during the SB, but none qu…
  • It was not "banned" in any way. It was not accepted. Big difference:-) As an old, creaking, gray-haired feminist, I find it vulgar and sexist. As a film major, I find it to be crap. I wish someone with experience in film would make a good, fun, rock…
  • The way people are portrayed in those corn syrup commercials is pretty much dead-on accurate, don't you think? Babbling idiots. Look, people have been warned for years about this stuff. Years. If they want to insist on stuffing their faces with suga…
  • Well, what can I say? Sometimes parents can be idiots:-) While I think some of your mom's comments are personally nasty, part of her outrage could be that she is freaked out by your cousin. It's not a good reason for her turning on you and speaking …

  • I think it's scary how lazy shrinks are getting. Those drugs were never intended to replace good therapy, but that is how they are used now. I see family doctors, who have no business treating depression, prescribe them as if they were birth control…
  • I wrote to TJ and they denied this accusation that they irradiate their foods. They said none of their food has been irradiated. While I don't tend to be trusting, I think this person who made this claim of irradiation might be fibbing.
  • A few months ago I started to use a corn litter, "World's Best Cat Litter". I moved my cat to this because clay-based litters are not good for her, and I didn't want her near any pine oils or wheat products(what I've seen other litters use.) It clum…

  • Some women here are extremely active or are athletes, so they need a lot of calories. I sit on my ass in front of a computer all day and don't work out like I should, so I couldn't possibly stuff myself with so many calories without turning into an …
  • Zemphira, I got my treadmill a little over a year ago on sale at Amazon, for about $400(I believe it that was a 50% discount). I think it had been discontinued, so always look out for this kind of sale because you can get pretty decent stuff for a t…
    in Treadmills Comment by TomsMom
  • Personally, I wouldn't says it's because someone is vegan that they don't have symptoms, because not all of us eat the same foods. While I am not saying that diet has nothing to do with symptoms, I've seen vegans with wonderful eating habits, and ve…
    in Menopause? curious Comment by TomsMom
  • I just spent three days browsing flickr's pages on bento lunches! I can't believe I come back and see this thread! Have you guys seen the "Bento Porn" pages there??? There are lots of vegan bento lunches all over the flickr site! (I'm getting ready …
  • I know it's upsetting when you are new to feeding your pet raw. I still feel bad, and I've been doing this for a couple of years. However, it does get considerably better. It also helped me that I saved her life by changing her to an all-raw, carniv…
  • Zinfandel, I was absolutely floored when I read your first post. You are always so sweet to people, and I just wanted to kick some butt for you. After I wrote my post, I thought maybe you would think I was upset at you, so I'm relieved. Hugs, kiddo!
  • Well, you asked for an honest answer, so I hope I don't hurt your feelings. Your boyfriend is rather infantile. He's still into satisfying himself, with Mommy's food and pornography. He really needs time to mature, and that does not mean you have to…
  • My mom loaned me a really cute(and cheap!), small food processor that I use when I get a craving for things like the faux "egg salad" recipe, which uses very finely minced carrot. It makes an awesome mush! The processors come in handy for fine chopp…
  • I disagree with some of this list.
  • He thinks you're spoiled? At least you're not the whimp who can't get his own car fixed to visit his OWN family. Geeze. Girls are supposed to be spoiled. It's our right:-D If you're worried for your car and don't want to drive, you can check out the…

  • Rawlizard, it's such a pain to grind the whole seeds using a normal blender. I really had an awful time using my normal blender and even my coffee grinder. Then my folks gave me an Omega auger-type juicer for a present after I had been on the raw di…
  • The bitterness is from the hull. The thing is, after a few tries, you can't taste the bitterness anymore. At least, I don't notice it much at all now. Remember that if you want the loads of calcium from tahini, you must use unhulled seeds, since mos…
  • RavishingRaw, I was not raised to tell people to close their mouths and live quivering in fear. I can't believe you're advising me or anyone to stop talking or how to speak or what to say.
  • Angie, I said turnip GREENS, not the root. Also, the almond milk might not have the same amount of calcium that the whole almond would. I could be wrong, but I though whole, unhulled sesame seed had more calcium than almond.
    in Calcium and Iron Comment by TomsMom
  • Turnip greens have an insane amount of calcium. I juice mine, but you can eat them in a salad, too, or stick them into a green smoothie. Whole(unhulled) sesame seeds are a tasty way to get a load of calcium, also. I don't worry too much about iron, …

  • You're making it much too complicated, Lenya. Just relax and enjoy your transaction. Make it as easy on yourself as possible. There is nothing hard about a vegan raw food diet. It takes only minutes to create a fresh, green salad with chopped veggie…
