I make my menu fit my especially tight intolerances of anything mad-man-made and must avoid anything in the tiniest amount of sulfites in it too. Gluten is not my only no-no.
I am thankful for this team and the whole Spark site to help me get motivated and learn than my needs and choices are gluten-free and poison free and beyond including no vinegar.
Creative energy is a form of energy and mine is always in short supply. My favorite flour is sweet rice flour. I use it to make piecrust, gravy, dumplings, and cheese sauce to name a few. My meals are herbed and spiced with a large variety of which I have included spearmint leaves and basil seeds. I like the crock-pot to marry flavors in a bean or beef stock base from dried organic beans of a fresh cut of roast.
I have weaned myself down to no more than a cup of sugar in a whole day. I use rice wraps to create colorful tid-bits for snacking with a light fruit reduction sauce from slow cooking of fruit and white sugar or I make a honey dip. I never know how my head will react to fish as even those have the ability to hurt me.
Turkey with all the many chemicals in the 10% solution is a bad choice for me. The duck I had at Thanksgiving was a pleasant experience and a change of pace from beef or chicken. I like onion rings first put in an egg wash then seasoned rice flour or in Pamela’s pancake mix batter before lightly browning in canola oil at temperatures well below deep fry or open pan burning.
I love all vegetables but my local stores only offer about 20 of the most common. My food style with vegetables is to cook some and slice or dice some to be eaten raw. The nutrients are presented to the body differently. A tomato can release lycopene only after breaking down the cellulose usually with heat, while the vitamin “C” is retained and appreciated by my body in it’s natural raw state.
The greatest love story is your own.
If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win.
You are the happiness master of your own mind.
Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good.
Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness.
I may not recognize the significance until some time later.
Is my resistance to change really that strong?
Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson;
Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;
