Easier said than done !:gracious:
Mike Dolce says that after eating you should be able to go for a 45 minute jog. My habits ingrained by my mom and her Great Depression era father were to gobble till it's gone! VERY HARD habit to break!

NM, we must have had the same parents ! I was not allowed dessert until our plate was "clean". Also mom would say "there are starving children in China that would love your food". So when I married a full on Chinese gal & mom came to live with us, I would mention that ,from time to time, for a good laugh.

On a related note a Chinese friend once told me, "Eating time is sloppy time." Manners and etiquette be damned when a Chinaman is flicking rice from bowl to mouth.

When you eat the wrong stuff, you end up living to eat. When you eat the right stuff, it's much easier to eat to live. Even if you're eating to live, though, it's OK to enjoy the hell outta your food. Bacon and eggs, steak and mushrooms, pork loin and kraut, roast chicken and cole slaw, homemade beef and vegetable soup, onion burgers with sautéed onions, salmon burgers with grilled red peppers; shall I go on? Nope, I've got a big pot of homemade chili on the stove, right now, with beef, garlic sausage, onions, red and yellow peppers, tomatoes and a perfect blend of SOG chili spices. "It's gonna be good (In my vest BBQ Pit Boys voice), oh yeah."
Part of the reason for the foods I've settled on is a lot of experimentation and food elimination, reintroduction, etc. What works is what my body tolerates well. The wife can allow a few things I can't and can't tolerate some things I can. Everybody's different.
Most of the vegetables in the nightshade family (peppers, tomatoes, egg plant, potatoes, etc.) require special preparation before consumption. For instance the skin & seeds of peppers & tomatoes are toxic to hu-mans... these should be removed then eaten or cooked, etc... Other foods such as Mango's are members of the "poison ivy" family, eating to many mango's will cause a person to break out in hives and cause other problems... It's amazing how many foods we eat are toxic if not properly prepped in higher quantities... the blood, liver, kidneys and other organs are stressed to remove these toxins, over time either/and disease developes or the organs begin to fail...

You'll never see a real Italian cook tomatoes making sauces with the skin on & seeds in, now will an authentic Mexican dish be served with bell pepper skins not removed.... DYODD

True story. I was taught totally different eating manners than I learned in a Chinese home and they are very educated & proper, but "Chinese proper". I like the Chinese way ! :oriental:

I don't really have too many problems, that I know of from eating tomato and peppers with the skin on them. I might have to just change that up. As a rule, I don't eat too many vegetables, anymore. I use them more for flavor, texture and color in my food. You know, an omelet with peppers, onions and cheese is more appetizing than a plain omelet, with just cheese. And chili is better with tomato, peppers and onion in it. Even so, it doesn't pay to stress the body systems by making the organs deal with toxins that are not necessary. Good points.

I am going to pass this along to MySonTheDoctor and see what he knows about it.
Just to set this up for you... Mrs. Fenz is a rad tech in the cardiac cath lab here at the U of I. Has been for many years. She also has the dubious distinction of being from an immediate family with the most registered pharmacists (5) of any in the state. Needless to say, she's all about the meds and will never understand my resistance.

Anywhoo... Any time that I hear some medical news I run it past her- in fairness, sometimes I poke it at her like I did again this time. Only this time it was twice in as many days. The day or two before this study there was another one in her bailiwick that called BS to their baby aspirin a day mantra. So yes, it was like a double gut punch. She didn't throw any pots and pans but I instinctively ducked and covered anyway. Good times.

Glycoalkaloids; BTW Potatoes are also nightshades. They effect different people differently too.

IMO fruits and vegetables are highly important to our overall health because of the natural source of micronutrients they provide. Most of us are too focused on the MACROnutrients when it's the MICRO's that really fill in the gaps and provide the body with super essential trace elements that it needs to complete certain vital tasks. Thus a good variety is suggested with greens being the fundamental source. Kale/spinach and beets are some of the best superfoods imo.

The dirty dozen is what I pay most attention to in terms of danger to health. I try to wash/soak in vinegar/water any fruit or veggies that do'nt get pealed

The dirty dozen and clean 15 of produce
By Jackie Pou
May 13, 2010
A new report issued by the President’s Cancer Panel recommends eating produce without pesticides to reduce your risk of getting cancer and other diseases. And according to the Environmental Working Group (an organization of scientists, researchers and policymakers), certain types of organic produce can reduce the amount of toxins you consume on a daily basis by as much as 80 percent.
The group put together two lists, “The Dirty Dozen” and “The Clean 15,” to help consumers know when they should buy organic and when it is unnecessary. These lists were compiled using data from the United States Department of Agriculture on the amount of pesticide residue found in non-organic fruits and vegetables after they had been washed.
The fruits and vegetables on “The Dirty Dozen” list, when conventionally grown, tested positive for at least 47 different chemicals, with some testing positive for as many as 67. For produce on the “dirty” list, you should definitely go organic — unless you relish the idea of consuming a chemical cocktail. “The Dirty Dozen” list includes:

  • celery
  • peaches
  • strawberries
  • apples
  • domestic blueberries
  • nectarines
  • sweet bell peppers
  • spinach, kale and collard greens
  • cherries
  • potatoes
  • imported grapes
  • lettuce
All the produce on “The Clean 15” bore little to no traces of pesticides, and is safe to consume in non-organic form. This list includes:
  • onions
  • avocados
  • sweet corn
  • pineapples
  • mango
  • sweet peas
  • asparagus
  • kiwi fruit
  • cabbage
  • eggplant
  • cantaloupe
  • watermelon
  • grapefruit
  • sweet potatoes
  • sweet onions
Why are some types of produce more prone to sucking up pesticides than others? Richard Wiles, senior vice president of policy for the Environmental Working Group says, “If you eat something like a pineapple or sweet corn, they have a protection defense because of the outer layer of skin. Not the same for strawberries and berries.”
The President’s Cancer Panel recommends washing conventionally grown produce to remove residues. Wiles adds, “You should do what you can do, but the idea you are going to wash pesticides off is a fantasy. But you should still wash it because you will reduce pesticide exposure.”
Remember, the lists of dirty and clean produce were compiled after the USDA washed the produce using high-power pressure water systems that many of us could only dream of having in our kitchens.
The full list contains 49 types of produce, rated on a scale of least to most pesticide residue. You can check out the full list from on the Environmental Working Group’s website at www.foodnews.org.

I'm a glutton for what around here is called the Hangover burger and at Smitty's Garage burger joint is the "Eggonator" which is a nice juicy bacon cheeseburger with a fried egg, lettuce and tomato. YO!

Sounds very edible! As a matter of fact, if they would serve that baby with some home fries it would be awesome.

Just thought I'd give you guys a gander at a Donatos edge to edge pepperoni pie. All their pizza is excellent and they're headquartered in Ohio, but are spread over ten states, right now. They also have incredible dry rub wings in four flavors. Great food. Nutritional Information _ Donatos Pizza.jpg

That looks like a heart stopping, major stroking, cholesterol clogging stack of yummy yummy dead cow... Looks like that may be one worth dieing for!

We usually get a thin crust vegetarian pie from Murphy's on Tuesdays... last Tuesday we ordered a pepperoni pie, the first pepperoni pie in over a year. After not eating pepperoni in a year, that was enuff for me, back to the vegetarian pies. Pep & chaz pies were once one of my favorites.

For me, pizza isn't pizza without pepperoni. Donatos has an excellent thin crust, that's actually cracker thin, but still chewy. I need to quit thinking about pizza now.

Yeah if you eat more than a few a year. I average about 1 every 3 months.

Ok, no meat? One of the best things I've ever eaten was a fallafel pita from someplace in SW CT. I've not had found anything close to it in 20 years. Their tadziki sauce was on point and the combination of flavors was delectable.

Thanks guys, the raised boxes were a, plan ahead for old age, now that we are there, I'm glad I had the foresight.
We do our string beans, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumber, chili's, spices & some tomatoes in there. Then we have an outdoors fenced garden for more tomatoes, spices, basil & pot.

This is the only place that my diet differs from yours. I eat a bacon & egg scramble, with pepper jack cheese & a little homemade Sriracha/mayo squirted on top. Sometimes I add a few chopped mushrooms. :green tea:
SOUNDS Delicious. You can keep the mouserooms though.

TAEZ, If ya don't mind sharing your Sriracha/mayo recipe that would be greatly appreciated. gb

"Too much of a good thing can be disastrous." True and eating the junk in moderation and on rare occasions isn't a metabolic disaster. Every seven to ten days, I'll have a free for all meal with anything I want. Pizza, pasta, burgers and fries, a pile of corn tortillas and home made chili with cheese, ice cream, beer, anything! Then, it's back on track.

I once sent back a "rare" ribeye that was BROWN all the way through. The cook was a female, with an attitude (probably wore a "pink hat" The next one had hit the grill for 10 seconds, flipped, plated & presentment, still purple inside. I ate it out of spite, not too bad too !
Pittsburgh rare, black on the outside and bloody rare inside, please.
