lol I hear you!!

white or red?

unfortunately I can only drink white. Red causes my throat to get all scratchy. Feels like I'm going to swell up in the esophagus.
But that means I get to try more and more whites!!
I'm into Torrentes from Argentina right now (although a really nice chardonnay always hits the spot)

I love red red wine. But if I had what you have, I'd be happy with white! I think the red has more of a health benefit, so
it's the drink I feel the least guilty about.
Do you think you could have a sulfite allergy? (tho unless organic, sulfites could be used in white and red).

I do. I think you may benefit from adding some flax oil, flax seeds, or chia seeds for omega 3's. Your walnuts/greens have some though. Also, a bit more protein may help, but yours doesn't look that low. You've got a pretty good variety of food groups as well.

Also, I seriously thought you were in your mid-late twenties from your pic, so you're doing well all around it seems. :thumbright:

I'm not too sure.... I get the symptoms even if I drink grape juice which is really too bad health benefit wise
I'm always jealous when I see a nice bottle of red opened but I am starting to get to know my whites quite well
It's pretty addicting.... I actually go at lunch to browse the wine stores and I keep a spreadsheet of all the wines I've tried

Thank you for the suggestions, Zack! I like variety and I try to mix it up.
I have never chia seeds, that's true. One thing I do is when I make the salad dressing, like Agave Mustard, (which is a spin on "honey mustard" ) I use flax oil instead of olive oil....or in other dressings I may use it half-and-half with olive. I have flax seeds too, but not a proper way to grind them thoroughly right now-another thing on my want-list. I have a mortar/pestle that I use, so it does break a bit of them up and I throw them on salads sometimes.... :) :D :!:

I'm really digging it, MaryStella. I mean, it was kinda like tossing me into a cold pool...a cold
pool with really intense exercises and a muscular Michael Scott)-like instructor (The Office reference). Nothing much in the way of easing my way into it, y'know...just
some modifications. But I'm getting used to it. Doing it with my husband is a cool thing too-because we are both in a similar
mind-frame. I just want to progress..and I can see it happening already, which is heartening and helping my attitude all around.

I'm just wondering, hmmm, when I make it through the next 2 months, what then?

thanks--- well I'd love to be a gym person (was at one short bright period of time), but can't do it right now....$ This will last me a while then I figure I can modify it more if I get bored.

And actually I don't really think Tony looks like Steve Carrel, but he certainly has a goofy sense of humor and a voice like Michael Scott. I realized it after 2 weeks--just closed my eyes and there he was!
