I really want to know why mothering keeps me subscribed on threads that I've taken myself off of (and are 3 years old now) and keeps sending me updates, but dumps my updates for this thread EVERY.SINGLE.MONTH. Grrrrrrr Seriously, If I don't see an update in my inbox, I forget about it. My brain is mush! It's been a horrendous few weeks for me. Lots of family upheaval, tons of stress and then a car accident on Monday. Thankfully the kid (who didn't have a...

I tend to be borderline anemic, but a lot of the foods that are good sources of iron I just don't like. I have a feeling I don't get enough vitamin c, either. So, bought some kefir (which I'd never had before) and mixed it with some fruit and spinach (and a little bit of milk) and plan to drink one several times a week. ...

I dont really care for plain yogurt to eat. I only use it for cooking and for my falafal and gyro sauce! LOL ITA with mtnmama... we just add a spoon of organic preserves, or some agave or maple syrup to ours. My fav is a spoon of strawberry preserves and a handful of...

I've often wondered this very same thing, because I grind grains in mine all the time and I've never had a problem (and I've only got the wet blade). I always figured it was nothing more than a marketing thing... because I've never had any problems.

Turnips, rutabagas and parsnips are nice mashed. (I wonder what they'd be like as chips... Hmm...) Rutabaga chips are SOOOOO yummy!
I would completely eliminate ALL allergens. If she has any of them, the body will continue to react, which doesn't help with the healing. Does she like little pretzels? EnerG has some really great rice pretzels (although since yeast isn't one of our allergies, I'm not sure if it has that, you'd have to check the label) also www.kidswithfoodallergies.com is a wealth of information (and if you pay the annual fee you get access to the recipes). I remember sitting...
I've never had any of the problems that you mentioned with my vitamix. Quite honestly, I think it's the best piece of equipment in my kitchen. I use it for everything (including making soup in it).
Obviously I need to read all the way through the threads before asking questions.
About this car seat thing... am I the only one that reads that a child safety seat is to include a booster seat? I seriously thought the booster seat thing was already a law. Am I wrong that they don't have to be in a Car Seat??? There are only a couple of manufacturers that even rate car seats for up to 65 pounds (I know... because we paid almost 300 bucks for it). I read the article and just assumed it meant the booster (which like I said, I thought was already...

I'm so glad we did not tell anyone in real life this time. Makes it easier I think. I'm SO very,...
