Top Diet Myths

Not everyone loves potatoes, but who doesn’t love bread?????? How can anyone resist the aroma of a fresh baking bread……hmmm…yuuummmm………I’m sure not many of you! I love them both, with or without butter. My theory is that everything is good for you, in moderation, and in addition to some type of regular exercise (walking is my favorite).

After I read this article I decided to copy and paste it into my post to share with all of you, my wonderful readers.

Sorrel Leaves – My Organic Garden

Fresh sorrel could be a little challenging to find in a local grocery store, so the best place to look for it is in a specialty food stores, or to grow your own. I had a difficult time to even find seeds, until I inquired about it in our local gardening/farming store. They did not have it in stock, but were familiar with this herb, so I was very pleased to be able to order it.

Let me introduce you to this vegetable/herb, if you never had a chance to experience its taste or appearance.

Pecan Chocolate Cake – Atkins Diet

Dieting is not an easy task to keep up with, but worse yet, what do you do about celebrating a Birthday, and you need a special cake for the occasion. How about a cake for someone on Atkins Diet (high fat and extremely low carbs), which means no sugar and no flour……a couple of main ingredients you always use in making cakes!

Google.com to the rescue!! I found a real nice recipe for a Sugar Free Pecan Chocolate Cake, but I was quite skeptical about the outcome of this project….cake without flour or real sugar…only sugar substitutes….??? Would it taste like chocolate flavored cardboard??? Would it be very dense? Would it be very flat???
