  1. The Childhood Years
    Hi, I really want to get DD a beautiful wooden play kitchen? But she's going to be 9 years old. When she was younger she was given a plastic Dora one that she played with a lot, but I've always wanted to give her a beautiful wooden one. What do you think? Is she too old for it?<br><br> Could...

    <p>I really need some ideas for healthy snacks that are high in protein.  The more simple the better.</p> <p>My current favorite is a handful of almonds.  Besides meats and eggs, which just aren't that appealing to me right now, what other high protein foods could make good snacks?</p>

    If I were just sauteeing them or cooking them into something, I'd say there's probably not enough of a difference to worry about. But how about eating them raw? I've had curly kale raw, but I've never had dino kale raw. I have an excellent kale salad recipe, and I have 1 bunch of each in my CSA...

    <p>I'm slowly trying to find healthier meals and ways of cooking.I like olive oil, but I've read that you shouldn't use it for frying b/c it loses some of the nutrients or something, I can't remember how it was worded , but you lose something. I also don't really like it for frying b/c it heats...

    <p>HI ladies,</p> <p> </p> <p>I've just started taking kelp (dried, granulated). I tried to mix with water and drink it down but it's just too nasty for me. I'd like to buy some empty capsules so I can just swallow it and not taste it. If there's anyone who purchases these, would you let me...

  11. Nutrition and Good Eating
    <p>I've been reading some of the posts on here and I've found something interesting. It seems that most of you have something against carbs. Like eating no grain, at all, or at least very little. I've also got the newest Eat This, Not That book that I bought on a whim that seems to have a...

    <p>I par-steamed tons of summer greens - swiss chard,beet greens, kale, and spinach.</p> <p>they tased good before being frozen, but now that it is winter and we want to eat them they are so gross, and limp, nasty, and rubbery and tough- especially the stems.  I think that unless we can get...

    <p>So my boyfriend hasn't been diagnosed with celiac but his mom and aunt definitely have it and they suspect other relatives do as well.  I've read research on how breastfeeding is helpful in preventing it, especially after the baby is introduced to gluten but haven't really seen anything on...

    DH says to put it right on the oven rack, and then put a pan of water on the lower rack. If I do that, though, I'll lose all the drippings, into the water. And I really want the drippings. What's the point of duck, which is so fatty, if I can't use the fat?<br><br> Can't I dry roast duck, like...

    <p>Are there any good links for a shopping guide of pesticides on all foods? Not just produce? I would love to go 100% organic but we can barely afford all the organics I buy now. I try to purchase the "dirtiest" organically as well as non-gmo.</p> <p> </p> <p><span><img alt="help.gif"...
