Ha ha ha!! Real Food. Love it!

When you know what's good for you it's interesting to drive by all the fast food (& other) restaurants and recognize that it is not 'real food'.

We have a little song that was inspired by Saturday Night Live that we sing when going by McDonald's..."What's that? That's Crack!" It's a fun and good reminder that indeed it is NOT real food.

(...the takeoff is that there was a character on named Pat that whose sex it was difficult to discern by looks or actions - "What's That? That's Pat?" was the theme music [I know it sounds wrong!] )


It is so pleasant to explore nature & oneself at the same time, doing violence neither to her nor to one's own spirit, but bringing both into balance in gentle, mutual interaction.

Yes - real food has become comforting to me I spent the last 2 weekends with our in-laws and they eat nothing but junk, convenience, non-food. Kris is even sick today and I'm sure it's from the way we ate while staying with them unfortunately.
I went to the grocery store with my sister in law a couple of nights ago so she could pick up food for dinner and she decided to cook burgers for dinner - great I suggested we have burgers and salad - she must not have heard the salad suggestion because she went and got frozen corn on the cob and tater tots and that's what our dinner was. She did not even step foot in the produce section. And she spent $75 on junk. She actually thought she was buying something healthy when she bought light Yoplait yogurt filled with artificial sweetners - if only she knew what she was doing to her and her family's health. I felt like a bloated slob on the drive home from her house last night and even my husband commented on how he was sick of junk food.

Quoted from Brighid45
Just had to post this here, as it is definitely a testimonial to the BTD.

The other day at work I had gone to an early lunch break. On this particular day, lunch was some leftover pot roast with plenty of thyme, onion and garlic, and a big pile of sauteed kale.

Yeeeeah, bay-bee!
Quoted from Brighid45
...my employer stuck his head in the breakroom and took a big appreciative sniff. "You are the only one who eats real food around here," he said. About ten minutes later a gang of fellow employees came in with their orders of cheesesteaks, fries and pizza. And they all said, "Hey, who brought something good? It smells like real food in here!"

The other day, I had a leftover lamp chop and some broccoli. The QA Director called out from her office "Edna? You brought something good again, didn't you?" So I called back that it was a lamb chop and broccoli. Then a moment or two later, a QA Manager comes up, stares at it, and says "You MADE that?", all incredulous-like. Yeah, I actually threw it all in a pot and set the oven to 350, imagine!
Quoted from Brighid45
Ten years ago I was one of the cheesesteak and fries fanatics.

Identical twin alert.
Quoted from Brighid45
Now I'm eating better than I ever have in my entire life, and I LOVE it. While I sometimes fall off the wagon, I'm scrambling to climb right back on, because this is the best food plan ever.

Sing it, sister!
Quoted Text
I've said it before, and I'll keep saying it: thanks so much for all your hard work, Dr. D. It changes peoples lives for the better. Well done!

last time I tried that, part of my reply ended up inside the box with the original quote, and part outside the box (but, hey, that's me, always outside the box, eh?) , where Twisty's quotes are all neatly separated. Sigh. I'll keep trying.
Off to bed.

I'm known as the one who, "Always eats so healthy," at work. Used to enjoy the status, now simply feel sorry that healthy food is such a rarity these days.

I have a whole new sense of self-esteem since I began BTD back in September!

I now actually don't feel so happy with myself when I make poor food choices--and believe it or not---it used to Never bother me! I just (h)ate myself into (un)happy oblivian!

I LOVE Dr. D--and I don't care who tells Martha!

"You eat real food" part two . . .

Over the last week I've been in a mild to moderate flare. Those of you with fibro know what I'm talking about. It's hard to describe to anyone who hasn't endured one, but it's sort of like that stage in a bout of flu where you ache all over and feel like a truck ran you down. Well, I've been pushing myself a bit too much workwise and am paying now--I take full responsibility for not listening to my body sooner when it told me to get some rest. At any rate, as I was eating my lunch yesterday (beef brisket and steamed broccoli with onions--yummy!), several people said 'well if eating that way is so good for you, how come you're hurting?' My reply: 'If it weren't for the BTD, I would be completely bedridden and unable to work at all by now. That I am here is due DIRECTLY to my food choices as guided by Dr. Peter D'Adamo.' Boy howdy, that shut 'em up. I even got a book request from that exchange!

I love hearing this kind of news ladies! No need to preach at people. Just eat your real food and let folks form their own conclusions.


!

What fun is the BTD, if you can't Preach it?!

Just remember that people have 'ask' the question before they can 'hear' the answer. So preach away, but don't take it personally if your audience doesn't 'hear' what you have to say.


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

So true, drea.  If a person doesn't express some form of interest in making a positive change in their health, our words fall on deaf ears.

The plate on the bottom is glass.  The dome is a very hard plastic.  I believe it is the softer plastics that we have to worry about.

I think the concern is vapors coming off the plastic and getting into the food while it is cooked.

Quoted from Arlene

The plate on the bottom is glass.  The dome is a very hard plastic.  I believe it is the softer plastics that we have to worry about.


I've been gradually replacing all plastic kitchen ware with glass.  I think there are some situations where the plastic will not do much harm, such as drinking a glass of cold or room temperature liquid out of a polycarbonate container.  I don't let liquids stand in anything except glass or stainless steel, though.

My new blender has a polycarbonate container.  The last one was glass, durn it!  But at least this one is shaped to actually pour out of it.  But I will be very cautious about blending hot foods in it since heat can cause all these materials to be less stable, and release their vapors, as Don said.
It would concern me to bake in something of this material.  I wish they would make it with glass.
