Finally, A Green Tea that tastes Good!

I don’t like green tea. I’ve tried many types of hot green tea from Asian restaurants, various green teas from stores, and iced green tea from all over. Yuck!

MSG and Japanese Mayo

Even if you are not bothered by MSG, stay away from the stuff, it’s toxic. I avoid mayo and now it’s even more important, Kewpie has MSG in their mayonnaise. It’s also commonly referred to as Japanese mayo. If you eat sushi, they might be using this. Beware!

Why do people stop weight-loss programs that work?

I have a friend who was on Jenny Craig and lost a lot of weight, but she stopped eating their meals and gained the weight back. She’s been saying she’s going back to Jenny Craig, but hasn’t done so in months. Why don’t people stick to plans like these if they work? I like cooking […]

Dairy-Free Protein Powder

I’ve been enjoying MRM’s Vanilla Egg-White protein powder for years, but felt sick for roughly six hours after having it with a fruit smoothie.
