Foods What does papaya taste like? Apr 02 2010
10:25 (UTC)

Papaya is so good! i love fresh papaya, and i also get frozen from trader joe's if there is one by you?...that is really good, it tastes like a cross metween a mango and a honey dew melon, really juicy and sweet? so good!.... thats how i'd describe a papaya.... but sometimes the texture can be weird and soft if its not a good one, but papayas are really good when they are perfectly ripe, and no rotten spots, and a bit firm...good to know they are good for your digestive track i didnt know that before!


Health & Support Fear Foods: Which Ones Did You Conquer Today? (Part 2) Apr 01 2010
21:59 (UTC)

i didn't conquer any fears today in particular.  Yet the other day at my grandparents for passover i ate some of the food(there wasnt really any vegetarian choices) but i made do.  i had kosher chocolate cake, a very small slice yet that was the first time i think i have had cake in maybe 4 years not counting IP cake... also this week i have had an egg 3 times!..which was a fear and i am now over that fear :)! 

  on Tuesday night i went to the ER for signs of heart failure and other stuff :[ dont worry... i am okay at the moment hanging in there, but i was proud as silly as it sounds that i drank the orange juice they gave me due to very low blood sugar, a few months back i would have def. refused it and would have had a fit about it after wards...

Foods how do YOU make oatmeal? Mar 30 2010
12:36 (UTC)

i make my oatmeal on the stove top, i use country choice organic oatmeal. i put 1 cup water in the pot, add 1/2 cup of the oats, i also have oat bran which i use mothers organic quaker brand or w/e,....well i whip in a banana with a wooden paddle/big spoon ;P  until it is creamy and cooked in, add dashes of cinnamon, clove, and a packet of truvia usually.... put in bowl and top with either, cashew butter,  PB, almond butter, hazelnut butter, coconut butter, walnut butter haha i have A LOT of nut butters.... ;P  ...well also of course any kind of nuts usually 2 tbsp of nuts and 1 tbsp of nut butter...unsweetened shredded coconut is really good on oats too..and  of course i often have just dried fruit, raisins, dried figs, or dates etc in oats no banana or a 1/2 a banana and like 2 tbsp of dried fruit.  :) and lots of cinnamon is always obligatory!i like to have variety and be creative with my oats!

cptbunny: to answer your cottage cheese question, i have mixed it into oats before it is quite good, mix it in when you are almost done making the oats its good with lots of cinnamon, a sweetener, and raisins was my favorite! havent had that in a while but def. a great way to add protein, and to use up your cottage cheese. also since your not a fan of cottage cheese, sometimes i mixed it into pasta with basil and other herbs and steamed veggeis and it mets and tastes more like ricotta and less like cc...and also one more suggestion,  if you blend 1/2 cup of cot. cheese with 1/2 a frozen banana and 1 tbsp of any nut butter + a sweetener and cinnmon and blend until smooth it gets to be more of a "mousse" and the texture is smooth and it doesnt even taste like cot.cheese. any more! :) and it is really delicous topped with granola, nuts or chocolate chips  etc!! :)

Weight Gain Saturated Fat intake.. Mar 28 2010
10:18 (UTC)

Emmy, saturated fat is so good to repair your brain, it is probably one of the most important things to get while re-feeding...calorie count analysis will say your getting too much, but that is corresponding to a 2000 calorie diet so if cc says 25 grams is recommended 35-40 would be good for eating 3000 calories, yet getting over that is OK.  your body needs it. your doing so well stay strong girly!
