I rented a book from the library, “Diet Cults,” and started reading it a few nights ago, and it was eye opening and has been hard to put down. The first few chapters talked about the history of diets, and how people will adopt a particular way of eating as “The One True Way,” and then… Continue reading Diet and Exercise Cults

Do you know what a “Flyer Liar” is? If not, here’s the challenge; next time you get coupon’s from a grocer in the mail, look at the discounted “food” within it.  Then discount it.

Eat Clean Veggie Fried Rice Recipe

I ate some chicken fried rice from a take out place a few nights ago (Leo’s Chow Mein) and it was tasty, but not exceptional by any means, and anything but clean in looks, content and taste.  Way too oily (likely not a quality oil) darkly colored (probably from dark colored sweeteners and soy sauce,)… Continue reading Eat Clean Veggie Fried Rice Recipe
