  1. I have not have time to read thru this entire thread so it may have been said before. But eating mostly vegetarian certainly goes along way to dealing with the health and environmental issues. That is the way my family eats. While we can't seem to go completely vegetarian, we eat very little meat. From an ethical perspective, I have been striving to buy the meat we eat from local farms. This also greatly reduces the health and environmental impacts from eating meat. Unfortunately, it takes more time to buy locally sourced meats and it certainly is more expensive. I try to overcome my mise
  2. Wow - this has been a great blog. I was busy and had to read it in two big chunks rather than follow along. Now I am inspired to revisit your city - it's been way too long and I wasn't so into food when I went 20+ yrs ago. Thank you so much.
  3. I made Mama's meatballs after he gave the recipe on some show I watched. My go to recipe was far better!
  4. what a great way to approach a low carb diet. Sounds like you found a very manageable way to stay with it. Loving your blog so far!
  5. Hi soba - I laughted when I saw this because I automatically chose the zuni cafe cookbook - I have wanted this for a long time but never purchased. then I realized I have Marcella's cookbook, one of Madhur Jaffrey's books (world vegetarian, and many other vegetarian books), yet the one I want and gravitated to when I first read this is the one I don't have! Maybe I should just break down and buy it already! Even though I never post my cooking on egullet (not a big fan of taking or transferring pictures), I always love seeing your posts on the dinner thread. Your cooking style is much like mi
  6. Mine arrived while I was away on vacation last week so I had it rerouted to friends house. Just picked it up today and cant' wait to give it a trial run!
  7. As I have posted somewhere on egullet before (don't ask me where ), we are another family that can vouch for the low carb method. Without counting calories or following any specific diet plan (e.g. WW), my husband lost about 40 lbs in 5 months by switching to low carb. This was after he has been exercising regularly and really watching what he ate for about 5 years. He went from borderline diabetic and high Blood pressure to normal in the first 2 months. We started out very strict (for a different health reason in our family). No grains. We quickly added brown rice and other grains (quin
  8. Tea is pretty much my beverage of choice and when I have a really good tea (made by someone else), I love it. But rarely was I taking the time to brew a pot of tea for myself because I feel that it's too much of a hassle. Noone else drinks it but me, then I have to get out the pot, clean it, etc. Ditto with teaballs for indivicual teas, even though it's easy, I manage to fall back to bags (although generally something better than Lipton). Basically, I love and aprecicate good tea but am lazy. What finally got me to pretty much convert full time to loose leaf teas (of which I have many that
  9. I finally emailed Blendtec yesterday to inquire about shipment. This strategy apparently worked because they emailed me right back informing me that it was being shipped out. Since I am leaving for vacation tomorrow, can someone tell me how they are shipping them (eg fedex?) so I can advise my neighbor to keep a lookout? I can't wait to start using it!
  10. That's great - another shout out to your wife. You can't miss out on opportunities like this, glad she talked you into it.
  11. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
  12. Thanks, feel a little better then. That is same time and color I ordered. I'll just have to try and be patient!
  13. Am I the only one who still hasn't got their shipment yet? Wondering whether I should follow up. Can't wait to start blending!
  14. With a few exceptions, we pretty much only eat brown rice. I was buying organic brown rice in large quantity from Costco but they stopped carrying it. I love Massa organic brown rice and frequently order that in bulk as our basic rice. For jasmine and basmati, still prefer white. I love the Kashi multigrain packs, brown rice with other grains (I think options are 7 or 9) incorporated.
  15. Wow - couldn't stay awake last night. Just finished watching it and agree with everyone else, that will be hard to beat. Plus, I am so happy Carla got fan favorite!
