I tried the vanilla soy last night with a bowl of cereal. It tasted very sweet--not bad, just different. Of course, I never drink the milk with the cereal (like most people do), so I got just a taste of it. My girls drank it, though. They liked it, but I think they like cow's milk better. Is the plain soy better for cooking?
I never heard any theories on why the Israelites survived so much--this was news to me. Makes sense, though. I've read more of the book now, and although this guy (Jordan Rubin) has made some great points, some of his ideas are entirely unsubstantiated and, in my opinion, not correct. I guess it's like any fad diet/lifestyle. Everyone has to pick and choose what works best for them.
You guys are so cool....we can try the diet thread. I really need buddies. I think the last thread was started because of me complaining too! I think Flopsie was the only success story of that thread!
I tried to get my sister and a friend to be my 'buddy' 2 months ago - I decided I wanted to loose (as close as I could) 20 pounds before a trip mid-October, and a total of 40 by the end of the year.....sadly, they were no help and I've gained 3 pounds!
My doctor said I'm not loosing weight by traditional means (cutting back, etc.) because of all my liver and metabolic issues. She said I have to be EXTREMELY strict for months before I saw any real progress (which, due to my failure rate these last few years, she must be right.) THat's why I just haven't be able to really get with it......too hard when you think of 80 lbs (yea, I know, think smaller goals, like my more recent attempt), too depressing, and really REALLY hard to motivate myself with no help in the house, it's easier to be depressed about it and eat.
But, if you guys start a thread Monday, I'll join!
