alcohol for some indeed is AVOID ..yes indeed it has ruined some perfectly good lives.  For all who gave up this or other specifics CONGRATULATIONS..

I ate something at 5pm today.. quinoa and loads of parmesan and I woke up at 10 pm moaning in all over body pain.. I don't think it was the parm.. but rather the quinoa even though I can have it.. but I think it does not agree with me.. I was in tooo much pain for on hour.. not worth it.. and if it is the parmesan then so be this the end of that..

some things we learn will just not be good.. I have some and nothing will make it ever ok to try again.. better I stay sober of both the quinoa and the cheese.  Just not worth it. Sober is the way to feel good.. on the wagon and fully understanding the need to stay that way.

one is to many and a thousand not enough!!!!!!!      


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Something was said back on page 1 about black pepper and edema.  Every so often, without reason, my feet will be puffy when I first wake up in the morning.  I roll out of bed and I have to step gently for a few minutes because it's like the bottoms of my feet are swollen.  I never could tie it with a food.....but I wonder if it's something as simple as black pepper.

Ribbit, don't you do the cooking in your house?  How would black pepper creep into your food?

I loved pizza cold the next day from the box.  That was really how I liked it the best.  I liked it fresh too, but I think it's better cold the next day.  With a beer.

Oh, it doesn't creep.  I put it there deliberately.  Every so often.  Because I like it.

I like it when my food bites me.

I crave it every once in a while.  Every time you watch a cooking show, they never leave it out.  It just has to be in there for some reason.  Why is that?  I mean, don't people get sick of that same flavor?

I don't.  I love it.  I just leave it out now.  I mean, we really should do without black dots sprinkled all over our food.....

Yes!  At least I do that.  I especially like the green peppercorns.  White next, and then black least of all.  But I only eat it occasionally.

I made some baked beans the other day (using the no-mato sauce as a base, except without the Italian seasonings) and I put dry mustard in it.  It was spicy and GOOD!

How does horseradish rate for you?  If good, you need to grow horseradish, dig the root, and use it...  It will bite!

But horseradish has its own distinct flavor, that doesn't work in all recipes, and that kids are likely to reject. Black pepper is a much more versatile taste- it just "oomphs up" whatever it is you're making, rather than adding its own flavor.

If memory serves, horseradish is fine, but I don't like it.  I eat wasabi once a year or so (the real stuff) and could really do without it.  My sister-in-law makes a cranberry horseradish relish every Thanksgiving and....everybody raves about it but me.

I've been in denial about all the fruit I'm eating.  Every morning my tongue is white!  Even the fermented veggies I've been eating aren't making it go away.

I'm trying to use up my fruit today and tomorrow so I can lay off the sugar the next day without wasting food.  I just bought a 3 lb. bag of organic apples, too.   I've started dicing them up into tiny pieces, and I'm going to ferment them so they aren't wasted.  I'll let myself have them that way: hopefully the probiotics will cancel out the sugar, and those bacteria will eat up some of the sugar, too.  Any suggestions on good spices for fermented apples?  Cinnamon is a no-no, unfortunately.

Did you ferment fruit?????????  

Fermenting fruit can turn into alcohol and it can make yeast worse when eating it.  You should be careful about that.  I suppose if you used granny smith apples it might not be that bad.  I don't know.  The only time I've done it is I put a small amount of crushed up raspberries in a jar with smashed up cabbage.  It didn't seem fermented, so I guess if the sugars in the fruit, maybe the fructose, aren't too high, it might be OK.  But regular apples seem to have a lot of sugar.  They make Apple "Cider" or alcoholic beverages out of apples in Europe.  So, be careful.  

You'll get your gut under control.  At least you know what's going on.  When I had all those antibiotics back in the day, I had no clue why my tongue was white.  Then, I was eating ice cream daily also to try and put weight back on.  DOH!!!!!  Slathered with peanut butter.  Those were the days.  Hehhehehehe

Yep, I'm fermenting apples with some ginger root (thanks again for the idea Ruthie!)  This is a bacterial ferment.  Bacteria don't produce alcohol, just lactic acid.  To get alcohol, you have to use yeast.
