Interesting that I eat a couple of squares of 70% Cocoa dark chocolate for it's health benefits each day....AND...I really can "just" eat 2 squares, people! LOL!
Naaaaah, for me that is impossible! It's either total abstinence or the entire bar
That highlighted bit was really me convincing me as well as you all...kind of like the little kid saying over and over to himself he'll be brave....I can do it, I can do it. Funny that you highlighted that, cj!
Yes I should, in fact I did last summer! Just by not eating "naughties" I managed to drop 6kg in 3 months, that put me very close to my 70kg ideal weight. Unfortunately winter is always more difficult and I've gained the same amount back. Today I start again...
Alex, your efforts there are very impressive and I'm sure you feel a lot better for it. Can you imagine heaving around that extra weight after your spine operation I always assumed you were on the tall side which makes you very light now. Even in my fit, sporty days I was a 68kg short arse but I do have "heavy" bones.
Keep up the good work!
I am a bit stooped these days due to curvature of the spine, but my present height was measured at 168CM.
Just found some info about "Organic, Grade B, dark amber, maple syrup", and that many health experts are saying that it can be a healthy addition to Type 2 diabetic's diet. Organic in this instance means that the "harvester" of the maple syrup sap streaming from the maple trees at this time of year "do not" use formaldehyde as part of a streaming agent to increase the flow of the sap and also do not use buckets with lead rivets in them to catch the sap...all to insure a more pure syrup. Then the Grade B designation is for the syrup that is harvested later in the harvesting season...late April. I've just purchased some of this organic, Grade B maple syrup and it is very strong in flavor, a bit smoky and woodsy (should be, eh?). And I'm reading on the nutritional label that it has 53grams of carb/sugar in a 1/4 cup...that works out to 4.3grams per teaspoonful...and it has a lower glycemic index rating than even honey. The nutritional values, minerals and, what they call an "antioxidant cocktail" of highly valued antioxidants.
Not sure on skillets but for our spun metal woks we gently heat them with a normal washing up liquid and water mix for a few minutes, this lifts the rust out. Then clean as normal and either dry with kitchen tissue or heat again to avoid it reoccurring.
