Eat This Lose That!
Eat This Lose That!
by Dr. Kota Reddy
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Book not read, BUT, have had his food - Excellent!!! And gf / GLUTEN FREE!!!!, May 6, 2015
This review is from: Eat This Lose That! (Paperback)
I have NOT read the book, BUT, I eat the ?bread?
Let me explain...I go to an Indian grocery store about once every other week, I often try stuff that I see & I've been GF/Gluten Free for the last several yrs. - YAY, lost weight, feeling better, etc.
The other night I was in there, trying some new things, got some biryani & tikka masala (yum!) & the guy said to try these things to eat w/my dinner. Said I have to have gf stuff, there it was right on the outside "Dr Reddy's Flat Bread". I saw the gf symbol - it went home with me. I thought it would be good, but it was better than I thought. I found that the way they make this, it looks a lot like a tortilla, but, the really cool thing is that it can be used like a tortilla but, on one side looks kinda like a slit in the flat bread...really cool that they cook it w/a slit on one side, so you can use it like a tortilla OR...cut it in half where the slit is, then it's almost like a pocket bread & you pour whatever food you have inside the slit. So you basically have 2 half round pockets - excellent!! Much easier than a tortilla!!

I can't speak for the book - yet - but those flat bread thingies are awesome...& gf!!!!! Yay!!

Trader Joe's Gluten Free Brownie Baking Mix 16-oz
Trader Joe's Gluten Free Brownie Baking Mix 16-oz

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME GF Brownies...so good!! Enjoy!, April 12, 2015
Wow, this stuff is awesome (& way cheaper at TJ's). Don't like their instructions...makes them way too chewy & hard. Here's my take on them & makes them perfect & luscious & wonderful....ETC!
Their recipe (on the bag) is "add 1 egg, 1/2 cup butter, & 1/4 cup water". I followed directions the 1st time & coulda beat someone to death w/what was in the pan - smelled & tasted good, but you coulda beat someone to death with it, & it was chewy in the extreme.

So sad, so I played around w/the recipe & found that this combo worked well for me - I like it softer, w/nuts & a touch more sweet. Here's my version - I change all of the above to - use mix, then add 2 eggs, 1/2 cup butter (like Kerrygold - oh my!), 3/8 cup water, add nuts to taste (I love pecan), and 1 teaspoon Vietnamese cinnamon (the sweetest cinnamon naturally).

After that I follow the directions as to mixing & etc.
I do love my Vietnamese cinnamon from Penzeys...so sweet naturally, great in cold weather concoctions too.
Enjoy!

Lotus Foods More Crop per Drop Rice Bowl, Volcano, 7.4 Ounce (Pack of 6)
Price: $19.74

5.0 out of 5 stars Lotus Foods has ruined me for any other rices <sigh> ;-) It's just SSOOOOOO good!, April 12, 2015
While I have not had this size of Volcano rice, I found the ?26 pound bag a while back....OMG I was in heaven. The flavor, texture, the fact that you HAVE to cook it w/less water (due to the fact that it's grown on the sides of mountains) Most rice is 1:1 ratio, 1 cup rice to 1 cup water. But I've found that cooking this rice (especially in non pre-packaged thingies) is a necessity, or it will get mushy.

Try just the Volcano rice by itself, add no flavors or fillers...tell me if that's not just the most wonderful rice taste you ever had! I don't think I'll ever go back to regular rice after this....Lotus Foods has ruined me for any other rices <sigh> ;-)

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT! & I'm HOOKED!!, March 26, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
LOVE IT! I am a 'word' gal. Love all of the plays on words, etc. So a game like this is heaven, especially for a short time between meetings, etc. A friend loves "Candy Crack", but I gotta have a bit more substance than just grouping 3 items over & over.
Ok guys, I'm HOOKED!!
Can we get more than 1 a day <please, please, pretty please?>


Thorne Research Zinc Picolinate [Double Strength] (30mg), 180 Vegetarian Capsules (FFP)
Thorne Research Zinc Picolinate [Double Strength] (30mg), 180 Vegetarian Capsules (FFP)

5.0 out of 5 stars New to zinc, but have loved Thorne & Metagenics since 2001! Fantastic company's, March 24, 2015
Although I've just bought this product, I have been using Thorne products since 2001 w/a bad health scare. I found that there products work, EVERY TIME. Other products may say they have the goods, but, in general, they just don't.
During my health scare I found that there are 2 brands I can count on; Thorne & Metagenics. Remember those 2 names as they ARE GREAT!

Life Extension - Super Selenium Complex & Vitamin E - 200 Mcg - 100 Vcaps (200 VCAPS)

Price: $17.25

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product., March 19, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Excellent product. Due to the fact that it's mcg / micrograms as opposed to larger quantities, it makes great changes without going overboard. Part of the reason these small changes make a huge difference, is that they are impacting multiple systems, but their primary support is to the thyroid system.
If you don't think tiny bits can change a LOT, eventually. Think about the fact that the Titanic was off track by the tiniest bit - broad analogy I know, but it does paint a picture.

Will be buying more...

5.0 out of 5 stars Mark Knopfler's style is evocative of so many emotions, feelings, longings, joys & sorrows intertwined..., March 17, 2015
This review is from: Tracker (Deluxe) (MP3 Music)
Mark Knopfler...what can you say about a guy that makes music like this? <shaking head> I can do naught but listen, listen long, listen with tears, with sorrow (that I can't make music like that), with joy-that I CAN hear music like that, & that I've listened to his music since about '79 - when Communique knocked me flat.
He has such a lovely combo of the Irish/Welsh fey sound, rollicking with Sultans of Swing & the depth / angst / deep pain of Brothers in Arms. I MUST watch Local Hero every few yrs; see my dysfunctional hometown of Houston juxtaposed against the comfort of the little town in the movie, along with the 'growing feyness' of the owner of the company <laughing>. The joy of the ceilidh in that little town, and the wonderfully 'off' characters there.
I know it's a place I love to visit every so often, kinda wished I lived there when feeling out of sorts... A fabulous group of characters.

Mark Knopfler's style is evocative of so many emotions, feelings, longings, joys & sorrows intertwined. Makes me want to get out my bottle of 1981 St Magdalene's Lowland single malt Scotch, and share with friends.
