Eating like 1 year old

I was driving yesterday and someone on the radio said that in the 1960s the average woman weighed 140 pounds and the average man weighed 166. Today the average woman weighs 166.2. The announcer said, “I don’t think that’s what those fighting for equality in the 60s had in mind.” When I heard that, I […]

Room for Cream? The Mystery of “Half-&-Half”

What the heck is “Half-&-Half”? Why does the stuff show up on retail shelves? It’s a wholesale product: It makes for coffee-shop convenience. Its existence says: “Where customers desire expensive cream, we pre-dilute it , to expedite consumer-delivery in a fast-serve setting”. It makes good business sense for any self-serve establishment. But: In the home? The […]

FODMAP and BTD

In early March my Honorable Husband had all the symptoms of diverticulitis. He had had two previous attacks. We were out of town at the time, so he went to a walk in medical clinic. The doctor concurred that it looked like diverticulitis and gave him two strong antibiotics. The treatment worked, and the diverticulitis […]

Sabbatical

I didn’t plan to take a sabbatical from blogging. It just happened. 2015 started off really slow for my business. To be honest, I sort of enjoyed working on some of my own projects. I tend to be like the plumber who has a leaky faucet at his own house. I’m scanning other people’s slides, […]

Raisin Syrup

This year, I was able to obtain a rather large quantity of Passover packaged foods from a kosher food pantry after I’d already done most of my Passover shopping. Plus, the shopping list already included a few treats for the kids, such as macaroons and marshmallows. I found myself in the unique situation of having […]

Over hydration

Our Strong Son stayed spent the weekend at our house for a recent triathlon. The day before the race he had carefully prepared his snacks and drink for the bicycle and the run portions of the race. He has done quite a bit of research on how much fluid and how many calories he needs […]

Allergy Avoid Tradeoff

Last week I blogged that my seasonal allergies and my food allergy to chocolate disappeared after several years on the BTD. I wasn’t expecting that result, so I wasn’t watching for a change. I just realized one day that I had gotten past August and September without a sore throat. I could be around freshly […]
