After 9 months of plateau, I revisited the idea of mono fruit fasting for the weekend. It's all you can eat watermelon and watermelon only starting Saturday morning and ended Sunday evening. The nice thing is it cuts down on cooking and I use le... Read more
By my calculation, I need another 600 oysters to last until next January. This is in addition to the 1,000 oysters I picked up in February. This time I'm going to take another approach. Instead of freezing them whole, I'll shuck them and put in ... Read more

OK, Eliz asked how to peel garlic?
You'll need a Chinese cleaver for that. Break apart all the cloves and use a knife to cut off the stem ends. Do it for all the cloves. Then use a Chinese cleaver to smack them, one or more at a time. Not t... Read more

I've been looking for uncured bacon for weeks with no success until I found them at Aldi today. No nitrates is good. They have always carried the dark chocolate from Germany. I also picked up some avocados to round out the good fats program. I h... Read more
