Bread 🥖
1yr
I normally eat ezekiel bread and noticed one of the main ingredients is honey. Are there any breads without added sugar?
  • Rachna Great question @AlexB! The Ezekiel low sodium and sesame sprouted breads have 0g added sugar. They have some malted barley, but it must be very little if it didn't register on the nutrition count....
  • AlexB Oh great! Thank you! I go to the RO market a lot so that’s perfect.
  • teachwitme Wow. Buy me some

Composting
1yr
Can I compost olive pits, pistachio nut shells, and corn cobs after they’ve been boiled?
  • Rachna The short answer is yes. But all 3 take longer to compost so for the shells and pits, just know that they will take longer to break down so you may need to filter them out if you’re composting at...
  • mmorawski For the cobs, even after they’re boiled or steamed? I’ve heard that once vegetables are cooked, you shouldn’t compost them. Just wondering…
  • annefood @mmorawski it’s fine to compost cooked veggies as long as they’re only steamed or boiled- so no fat or sauces.

Salt craving
1yr
I’ve been craving salt lately. Is this related to not having added sugar? Is anyone else craving salt?? 🤷🏻‍♀️
  • annefood I do not believe that there is a nutritional correlation, but it could be that you’re reaching for salty snacks since sweet ones are off the menu. Or perhaps the heat?
  • shmoozii I think you’re right. It’s a little weird is all.
  • garv Not weird at all . Salt does provide satiation.
Does anyone snack on squash and sweet potatoes? What’s a good way to prepare those for snacking or meals on the go?

  • annefood Hey @ScountMQ ! Great question about two delicious foods! Squash: my favorite way is to peel and deseed it, cut it into small cubes, and spread it on a baking sheet. Toss it with olive oil, sea...
  • garv @annefood love your ideas. Pls cook for me the next time I’m visiting! @ScountMQ I make sweet potato , sesame & chilli kibbehs. Great as a snack or to up the nutrition factor to your meal.

  • annefood Hey @Reb1 - leftover chicken (if properly stored and refrigerated) should be safe to eat for 3 or 4 days, so you should be fine finishing those leftovers tonight. Bring the soup to a boil for a few...

How many refined carbohydrates roughly are acceptable on a daily basis?
  • Rachna Generally speaking, it’s best to choose unrefined, whole grains whenever possible. When it comes to added sugar in particular, the max recommended amount per day is about 24 grams = 6 teaspoons....

Leftovers
1yr
From our Facebook page, Is it better to wrap leftovers if foil or put it in zip lock bags?
  • annefood Hey @mmorawski ! Good question. In general, I prefer to store leftovers in glass containers because there won't be any interaction between the food and the material in which it is stored. Glass is...
