Oops--"awful without it"

Comment by Randall Smith yesterday

Felaine, what's your source on "brown sugar being okay"? If true, I'm all in! My hot oat meal this morning was awful with it. I tried Stevia, but it was still bland. (Today is my alternate "sugar-free" day.)

While I've always been thin (120 lbs), I've eaten sugary and high carb foods forever. Guess my metabolism rate is high. However, I've only recently learned that sugars can cause more damage than just obesity, and that we're all better off without it.

I never read about the Atkins Diet because I mistakenly thought it was all a big joke. I was duped by the FDA, etc., thinking "eating fat made you fat". So wrong. Low fat food promotions mask the fact they have added sugars (i.e., salad dressings).

At age 72 (this month), I'm still learning. Thanks, "teachers"!

Sk8eycat, l had the day problem. I was alergic to breast milk. My mother told me l almost died, passing blood through vomit and bowels, before I was diagnosed correctly. My gastro told me that it's rare but does happen.
I've had stomach problems all my life.

My mother couldn't stand the milk that was available to her as a child, because of that "gross" fat on top.  She finally was able to take it when she discovered homogenized milk.  

I like either, but prefer non-homogenized.  Love that fat!

It doesn't seem to bother me much unless I drink it too close to bedtime, then it makes my nose stuffy in the morning.

My parents had to get goat's milk for me when I was an infant, because cow milk made me sick.  (Must have been ghastly for them during WW2.)

Joan, I LOVE cheese!  (Don't tell the "Cheeses Mice"  PLEASE!

Calcium absorption from milk is about 32 percent whereas some green, leafy vegetables have a calcium absorption rate of over 50 percent. Here are a few examples of the calcium absorption for vegetables:

Broccoli - 53 percent
Brussels sprouts - 64 percent
Mustard greens - 64 percent
Turnip greens - 52 percent
Kale - 40 to 59 percent


The dairy industry's commercials: (Every Body Needs Milk) are just sales propaganda.

Homo-semisapiens is the ONLY mammal that can tolerate milk once their mothers stop nursing them.  I can't, and never could.  One small glass won't kill me, but any more than about 5oz will have me sitting on the terlet all night.  Cats like milk and cream, but it has the same effect on them as it does to me.

I like butter, too. It has a delicious flavor and adds so much to a plate of steamed vegetables. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on Saturday

Felaine, I love your honesty! You make me laugh. Well !!! The plate image works for me to make sure I get a well-balanced meal. 

Now, as to milk. What do you do for calcium?

Comment by Patricia on Saturday

Don't like milk either Felaine, never did, never will. Love soups!!
