Puree Stage

I had greek yogurt, the infamous ricotta bake, refried beans – all of which don’t require any additional pureeing. and I still had 2 shakes a day in order to meet my protein goals. for stuff I actually pureed, I used a mini food processor – black and decker makes a cheap one that was the perfect size – I think they run around $10-$15. In that I would throw either hard boiled eggs, a pouch of tuna/salmon or a small can of chicken along with some plain greek yogurt…

2016 IP Rebooters Version 2 – Page 18

Day 2 of the latest reboot, and it didn’t go as well as day 1. Yesterday, I killed it: 2 packets, a bar, veggies & chicken, water: No problem. I was so busy all day, I had no time to think about food. Today, I had to stay home with my daughter (after she threw up in the middle of the night), and I’ve had lots of time to think about food. Still, not too bad. I added a hard boiled egg after my morning packet because I was starving,…

1 year TTC, IUI and PCOS questions

If you don’t want to do Paleo, try the insulin resistance diet! You actually eat MORE, just pair carbs with a protein in a 2 Carbs: 1 Protein ratio whenever you eat carbs. So if you eat a 20g carb snack, pair it with a 10g protein snack (hard boiled egg, etc). You never eat carbs alone. The insulin resistance diet greatly helped me get healthier. In addition, I’ve been doing some reading and it looks like supplementing with inosotol (used to be called vitamin B8) can do tremendous things…

Communicating with the Dead: Mediums, Séances, Ouija Boards

rooz Communicating with the Dead: Mediums, Séances, Ouija Boards image

MORE Source: Shutterstock/used by permission Probably the best way to resolve the ambiguity surrounding death is to talk to people who have been there and done that. Consequently, there has long been a keen interest in finding a way to communicate with the dead. One can go all the way back to the First Book of Samuel in the Old Testament where King Saul of the Hebrews persuaded a witch to conjure up the spirit of Samuel, his old mentor, to help him prepare for an upcoming battle. In ancient…

is there any hope?

So, last week, my fiance of one month ended our relationship, saying that he realized we are not compatible, that I do not understand him well enough, and that he cannot marry who I “actually” am as a person. We dated for 8 months, and I was always convinced that he was wholeheartedly in love with me. His actions showed it every day, and he would even tell me things such as (direct Quote: ), “I give you my sincere promise before God that I will never leave you.” We…

Christine Burke Apr 12, 2017 When I was pregnant with my son, a friend who was also a mother took me to a baby store to help me decide what I should put on our baby gift registry . Because I was newly pregnant and completely unfamiliar with anything related to infants and motherhood, I gratefully accepted her help, and on the appointed day, met her at our local big box baby store and promptly started to panic. There was so much baby stuff to buy. Wipe warmers. Bottle warmers….

The One Thing You Need For a Memorable (Not MAGICAL) Easter

The surest sign my kids’ Easter won’t be magical? Their mom had to google, “how to make hard-boiled eggs”. For the second year in a row. Yesterday I posed this question on Facebook, “Is it possible to care about your child’s spiritual formation and not make empty tomb rolls or resurrection eggs? I’m asking for a friend.” It seems I’ve surrounded myself with the best friends. Friends who do not judge my decision to phone it in when it comes to holidays. This is what they told me: “I sure…

The future of healthcare reform remains ever unclear. At one moment, emotions are running high as it seems all manner of protections, access and affordability are on the line. Then suddenly, Congressional efforts are stalled and all but dead, after the Republican Party was unable to muster the needed votes in the U.S. House in late March for its proposed American Health Care Act (AHCA) of 2017 . Meanwhile, our Diabetes Community is left holding the bag with a healthcare system that is clearly broken, and could change at a…

I think we are going to make the transition starting on Good Friday (April 14) because both me and MH are home and hopefully will take shifts with the wakeups.
