Yes, I have sprouts too! (they don't sell them in Japan, I brought them with me). Got to start a new batch though. I am so far behind on 'normal' stuff.
Wow, there are some great ideas and directions here too...now if only I had the energy...
I can get milk, but I'd have to make yogurt with almond or rice milk. We stay away from milk as DD has an allergy. Although, I did buy plain yogurt for me this week, and I have yet to eat it. I am a little scared I might have a negative reaction since I have had them in the past. And getting cheesecloth...ugh. I meant to ask DH to get some on his grocery shopping trip but I forgot! Blah. I'll be stateside in 6 weeks.
I LOVE nori! I do have nori, and crave it pretty steadily. Getting chickpeas is proving to be hard, but maybe I could try to order dried chickpeas.
Poor DD, DH left this weekend for a trip to the US and she is stuck with me. And all she's been getting to eat are leftovers and broiled chicken. I can't seem to manage much else at the moment.
Jac - a tip on the sugar making you sick is eating more garlic. From what I am reading, when yourr immune system is low (like when you are pregnatn) you can get a yeast infection in your intestines. I have one now and just got some garlic tincture and probiotics to fight it. I had it with my first pregnancy, too. It causes nasty heartburn and that coated-tongue-dry-mouth-nasty-taste-in-your-mouth thing.
Well, that explains a few things for me BaileyB. Because I definitely have that coating and I have the symptoms of a vaginal (sorry tmi) yeast infection which is usually (for me) a result of an over-abundance of intestinal yeast. So time to hit the probiotics and garlic.
Thanks for the cooking directions on chickpeas nstewart and on making my own hummus cadybh! I've never done either, its on to do this weekend list if I can find chickpeas.
