I am definitely in! I've been trying to lose weight forever. I've seen the Eat to Live diet, and I'm interested in it but I've found that with any diet, as long as you can stick to it, it'll work. The problem is having the resolve and dedication and also making choices that you can actually live wit...

I, too, am a fan of the Chronicles of Narnia. I also liked the Sweet Valley Twins series when I was growing up as well as Dr. Seuss, Judy Blume, Ramona, The Little Engine that Could, Snow White and the Create Your Own Adventure books.

I think there's a distinct difference between eating three meals a day of fried an other high fat foods than eating three meals a day that are balanced and nutritious. Granted I originally gained weight from medications and yes, at that time, I tended to eat more because the medications slowed down ...

Drugs are whatever alters your brain/nervous system chemistry. They don't have to be of an illegal variety. Caffeine, alcohol, tobacco cigarrettes, aspirin, tylenol, etc. are all drugs. I take medications to keep myself sane because I have a medical condition that requires it. You could say I'm addi...

I just started to be vegan again after many years of reverting to being vegetarian. The first step I made towards that goal was to be vegan at home and lenient elsewhere. This proved a mediocre strategy since I ended up buying cheesy things and bringing them home anyway. Cheese was my biggest downfa...

I am starting to do a fitness routine through my campus. They have a variety of activities -- aerobics, pilates, yoga and other stuff. I'm arranging my life so that I do that stuff every weekday. Eventually, I'm going to start at the place I was practicing at again. It's a little far, but it's not s...

hmmm.

I have always been shy of veggie-fruit mixes. I might have to give it a go.

Will these work in regular blenders, or do they require something sturdier like a food processor?

The term "fat free" is used liberally to mean very low fat content.

Even a vegan can be overweight, and I am a prime example. Just because some fats are good for you doesn't mean they still can't make you... erm... fat!

That's not what I'm worried about. I tried to return to martial arts a while ago, and I was discouraged because I was so behind everyone else. I had been a red belt (almost black in my system) and carrying the extra weight just made everything more challenging. I got to a point where I would make ex...

Not really a beginner, but a re-starter

If any of you say my intro, you'll understand this post a lot better. I am trying to restore myself to a healthier version of myself, and although I know I'll never be 17 again I'd like to try to regain my health and wellbeing by starting down the vegan path again and eventually taking up my sport o...

I just made a regular bread with half of that and also this other flour, I forget what you call it.

I never made bread before really and found this was a good introduction.

Kale and other Leafy Greens

I bought kale yesterday at Whole Foods and the first thing I thought of was frying in a pan. I don't have a wok, but I have a large and deep frying pan that sometimes doubles as a pot because it's so deep and has sides. I put some vinaigrette dressing at the bottom instead of just olive oil and adde...

My Spanish was revived recently when I started speaking with my Mexican neighbors. I still can only have basic conversations, but I think it's all good.

soy flour

has anyone used this? I tried to make it into pancakes along with another kind of flour. It has a funny taste, so I think I have to combine it with something. I added some canola oil and some turbinado sugar to the mix. They came out alright, but there's still that funny taste. Any suggestions?
