Can I compost olive pits, pistachio nut shells, and corn cobs after they’ve been boiled?
  • DietID_TeamDietitians 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.
Can never go wrong with tradition! Puerto Rican yucca pasteles and avocado! Yummy! 😉

  • 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...
