i think i eat too many calories at breakfast but it's really important for me not to get too hungry in the morning because i need brain function and have no time to eat a snack before lunch. i am good at bringing lunch. tza i have some glass food containers that seal very well and would allow you to put salad in a backpack. i got a few of them at target, they are anchor brand with a lid that you can push down on to create a vacuum that holds the lid on tight. but maybe you are talking about some other reason you can't put salad in a backpack.

Mostly bc not enough room but also fear of spillage

tehresa, Saturday, 10 March 2012 17:09 (2 years ago) Permalink

they should make a special pannier with a lining so you can just make the salad inside the pannier. i'm literally lolling at this idea.

kim tim jim investor (harbl), Saturday, 10 March 2012 17:11 (2 years ago) Permalink

the other pannier could be a salad spinner powered by your rear wheel so that you can wash the salad before work and have it dry by the time you get to work

T, I put the raw veg, chopped up but undressed, in a tupperware or take-out container, and put the dressing (home-made whatever) in those little condiment cups you get with commercial salads or DUMPLINGS! or w/e. Dress @ work. Solved!

Instead of Easter baskets in England they do these giant chocolate easter eggs that and then usually filled with lots of little smaller chocs so basically what Thomp is saying is that he's eaten a shitload of chocolate today.

Sometimes when I'm lazy/late in the morning, I just throw whole veg into a grocery bag and do the washing and slicing and dicing in the office kitchen.

I have done that too, Laurel. It really saves time in the am.

If you store them like flowers, upright in a dish of water, w/a plastic bag over it, it lasts much longer!

Do you want another pro tip about making onions sprout on purpose? If you cut up green onions/scallions, save the little rooty bulbs. If you put them in a glass of water they will resurrect (takes over a week) and you have a second round of green onions FOR FREE.

oh man I bought an overabundance of green onions last week. I first bought a bunch from the normal supermarket for .50 because they looked good. then when I went to the chinese market they were selling them 3 for a dollar.

I was pleased to see that my last bunch of green onions, they would grow in the fridge after I had chopped them. it was, indeed, like you said, two for the price of one!

I don't know what to do with all my green onions though. I added some to the guac I made today.

whoa do Americans not have easter eggs? this is blowing my mind

yes, an Easter egg is a hollow chocolate egg I guess 5"-7" tall and usually containing/bundled with bags of smaller chocolates, chocolate bars, etc

will def be trying the spring onion trick, I always get grumpy buying them because the shop sells them in bundles of like 10 and I only want maybe 2 or 3 (and even that will involve putting a great excess of onion into something and having horrible oniony sweat for the next 2 days </tmi>) and then they'll go off, and then I'll buy another 10 in two weeks

Yeah I don't use green onions all that often; regrow time is abut the time I want to use them again.

Abarham Lincoln posing (Abbbottt), Saturday, 10 March 2012 18:32 (2 years ago) Permalink

do you completely submerge the bulbs or leave the top in the air or does it not matter? do you need to change the water ever?

Nope, not in the way that you guys do. We get baskets filled with jelly beans and small chocolate Easter eggs and bunnies and stuff but we don't get the big eggs in a box like you do. TBH I think our baskets are better than your eggs cause we usually get more stuff but we don't get Good Friday or Easter Monday off so you guys probably win Easter in the end. ;) One time I wanted to make Spiralli and Easter basket so went all over looking for one and couldn't find anything even close so I bought a bucket and was going to make him and Easter bucket but then I left it all on the tube. :(

Also, I would like a big Crunchie egg now.

I can't really get down with the baskets and weird colored eggs. Also hunting for eggs that aren't chocolate seems somehow wrong, lol.

oh yeaaaaah wikipedia

The most famous Japanese soba noodles come from Nagano. Soba from Nagano is called Shinano Soba or Shinshu soba. Ni-hachi (二八, two-eight) soba, consists of two parts of wheat and eight of buckwheat; Juuwari (十割, 100%) soba, the finest (and usually most expensive) variety, consists entirely of buckwheat.

There is a very interesting question of how one can bring any levity to discussions of physiology. At root, we learn that we are awesomely complicated machines, which is in itself potentially a rather depressing thought. I wonder if La Mettrie was welcome in the parlors of Paris, Leiden or Berlin. Probably not the conversation for this thread or time.

Me So Hormetic (Sanpaku), Friday, 17 May 2013 06:24 (1 year ago) Permalink

Sanpaku, thank you very much for gathering all of this together. I really appreciate it a lot, especially that link to the papers. I'll be watching it and learning before deciding how to respond properly to my friend. What I'll be looking out for is what the evidence says about cancers that don't seem to be highly aggressive. I just got a second email from her that says hers is 'slow', and partly benign/calcified, but I don't know to what extent has actually metastasized in the lymphatic system - it's in there, but there is a specific test that seems to be able to tell you something about the chances of the lymph system allowing the establishment of the cancer elsewhere. I don't know what the results of that were.

VG, that's a very interesting and positive story - long may things continue as they are for your MIL! I sent my friend a holding reply that said: this scares me a lot, and yet I see what you are saying and I know there are no guarantees with chemo and surgery, and I will do some research myself. (I am cheating with Sanpaku's help). That's the most honest thing I can say. When I've read more I'll say more about the most positive evidence I can find. If I find things that cause me to ask myself whether this approach really fits her specific situation, maybe I'll say something about that too. It depends how strongly I think it would contribute to the research picture she herself is trying to build.

ljubjana, I'd also like to point you to Mark McCarty's magnum opus so far: Low-Fat, Low-Salt, Whole-Food Vegan: Staying Lean and Healthy into Ripe Old Age, where he puts everything together in 218 pages and 1100 references - one of the best guides to a health promoting lifestyle you'll find anywhere, and its free. The 35 page section on cancer prevention neatly summarizes the IGF-I/cancer story better than I've seen anywhere else.

My other nutritional guru of late is Vincent Giuliano, who may yet convince me to supplement more extensively. Search his Anti-Aging Firewalls blog for "cancer" and you'll find some very up-to date summations of current research on foods and supplements with antiproliferative effects.

1 month passes...

ljubljana, I came across the site Food for Breast Cancer a few moments ago and its clearly one of the most extensive, best researched sites on nutrition & cancer.

Also, I wanted to share a couple papers that do an excellent job reviewing mechanisms and foods that can reactivate tumor suppressor genes silenced by epigenetic modifications in cancer. This may be most potent nutritional intervention after cancer is diagnosed, and its an extremely active research field at the moment.

Stefanska, B., et al. Epigenetic mechanisms in anti‐cancer actions of bioactive food components–the implications in cancer prevention. British journal of pharmacology 167.2 (2012): 279-297.

Gerhauser, Clarissa. Cancer chemoprevention and nutri-epigenetics: State of the art and future challenges. Natural Products in Cancer Prevention and Therapy. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2013. 73-132.

The latter includes a comprehensive (as of 2012) "shopping list" of sorts for an anti-cancer epigenetics diet.

Me So Hormetic (Sanpaku), Wednesday, 26 June 2013 20:40 (1 year ago) Permalink

Thanks, I'll take a look at these and probably send them to my friend, especially that site.. I did some skimming around the papers you very kindly linked to, but not as much as I meant to, and my friend has gone quiet. Might see her in August as she might be in the UK.

It's funny, I was just thinking the other day about epigenetics and diet - I was remembering that a workshop was put on by UK research funders for bio and soc sci researchers. It was an attempt to bring both disciplines to bear on a bunch of broad-brush research questions. I wasn't there, but apparently the consensus was that everyone felt it was way to early to try to apply any kind of interdisciplinary approach to this set of problems. So totally not an area I know anything about, and things might have moved on a lot since then, at least on the bio side.

i think gradual is ok! you have to experiment to figure out what keeps you satisfied--it's not going to be perfect. oatmeal, i tried that shit for years but it's not for me,

call all destroyer, Tuesday, 15 October 2013 12:05 (1 year ago) Permalink

markers, in terms of 'sugar', what you want to do is keep your glycemic index (GI) levels 'flat', meaning no real lows or real highs a lot.

There are different paths that lead to that point. If gradually cutting stuff out works for you, continue on that.

But just so you know, most packaged drinks (unless it's black coffee) will have 'sugar' your body does not need.

Pure fruit extracts are okay, but think of it this way: would you really down 10 oranges in one sitting? The point is there are too many fruits in a cup of fruit extract and this can mess with your GI levels, as well.

I'll tell you my approach based on some scientific data which can be interpreted different ways, but I'll tell you how I interpret it.

First of all, I am not a biologist or a physiologist, so if someone is more aware of the intricacies of the following process, please correct me if I am wrong.

I'm going from memory, but fruit extract only contains the juice which after undergoing this process, is highly hydrolyzed. This means that it is digested and goes into your blood stream faster. When you eat fruit whole, it isn't as hydrolyzed and the rest of its parts help slow down digestion and decrease the speed at which it is 'released'.

So, juice (fruit extract) is like throwing a lot of sugar into your body fast, while eating a fruit is slowly releasing that sugar.

Yep, cut out the soda. Whether its the fructose in HFCS or the phosphate additives, its not good news. In general, it doesn't seem a good idea to drink your calories (whether soda, milk, juice, or alcohol).

I hydrate with a couple cups of unsweetened black coffee at dawn, a pot of green tea (with a squeeze of lemon juice) in the afternoon, and hibiscus tea (brewed from flor de jamaica) after dinner. All are well documented health foods, even the coffee.

also is jamaica really different from hibiscus or is it the same damn flower?

quincie, Thursday, 17 October 2013 05:11 (1 year ago) Permalink

Same flower - I just wanted to point out that there were alternatives to Red Zinger tea in the latin groceries. You can eat the petals after a brew, too.

Aside from having pretty much the highest antioxidant content of any herbal tea, hibiscus tea is notably effective in management of high blood pressure, might be neuroprotective, and inhibits angiogenesis in incipient cancers.

Cool, thanks! I'll pick some up today. How do you brew yours?

quincie, Thursday, 17 October 2013 14:30 (1 year ago) Permalink

I love jamaica, which by me is labeled "sorrel." I drop one or two blossoms into a pint glass with hot water and sometimes a peppermint teabag, add honey, drink at night. I think it might be a diuretic, although when you drink tea by the pint it's hard to tell exactly which of those things is making you have to pee at 6am.

7 months pass...

Have been moving towards eating a low GI diet for the past week or so, mostly because I want my body to use fat more efficiently as a fuel. This has been hard cos I'm someone that's used to living on bread and potatoes the whole time, I probably ate about one loaf of bread a day and I'm trying to replace that with more beans/nuts/fruit instead. Have to say I feel terrible at the moment, my energy levels are just so wiped out, my brain is shot and I'm slurring my words like a drunkard the whole time. Is this perpetually drained state a common thing? I thought it might be due to something else like overexercising, but yesterday I lapsed and had a really sugary flapjack and within a minute I felt fantastic and back to my usual self. Guessing that the depleted energy is probably just my brain telling me that I'm tired just so it gets to have all the glycogen for itself and I'm sure I'll adjust in time, but holy shit, this is grim.
