When I first started blogging, readers sent really great ideas to my comment box. I wrote that once a week I was going to share my favorite comments in my blog.
WHOA! That was a bad idea! I scared everyone off. I didn't get a single comment for weeks. Needless to say I abandoned that idea, and have quietly answered my mail privately.
However, some of this month's comments are just too valuable to keep to myself. I'm not going to give names or locations, so I will not violate your privacy.
After my blog about both my husband's and my cholesterol reports improving though we are eating opposite diets, a reader wrote to say she and her husband had experienced exactly the same results.
"I just wanted to comment on the cholesterol because I am a Type O and my husband is an A. I remember asking myself why is his cholesterol high and mine isn't when we eat the same things? This was before BTD. What a difference now! My husband's cholesterol dropped down to normal level, and I think he will be off the Lipotor completely."
After my blog about nut butters I got two valuable hints. I mentioned that I wanted to try walnut butter. I still think I will try, but I will certainly start with a small amount after reading this comment.
"I made walnut butter once and it was terrible. I had to throw it out. When you process the walnuts, it brings out the bitterness of the skins. It was awful."
I can't imagine the pumpkin seed butter tasting better than it did, but one reader asserts that it can.
"Next time you make it don t forget to toast the seeds a bit first, before grinding them. Also, while in the food processor, add a pinch of sea salt."
Several have requested the Peanut butter pancake recipe. I will post it today on RECIbase as Peanut Butter pancakes a.k.a. muffins.
