04:16 pm - Dairy!
I have decided to give up dairy products. They are so pathetic. I can't understand why I was raised to think that milk was so great. It was just embedded into our society like a tick. We were taught that milk was the "best source of calcium" and so on. Remember the Four Food Groups? Milk had it's own group! What makes milk so special that it needs its own food group? It should be counted as a protein.

I have noticed that I am lactose intolerant. I have so much trouble when I eat some dairy. It is so hard to give up though. It's in EVERYTHING! And whenever I am at a restaurant, I get stuck with something with cheese in it since I'm vegetarian and I don't eat fish. I really wish that the word would get out that milk is no good!

My partner and I are preparing to go macrobiotic, and I think giving up dairy is going to be prolly one of the hardest parts, especially since we both have a love for Italian food.

yo I eat mad Italian food.
Bruschetta, Broccoli Rabe, Polenta Lasagna, real good stuff.

It's fine to eat cheese every once in a while.

Yeah, I think moderation is good, at least for me. I was vegan for two years, and by the end of it I craved cheese so much I just went overboard. I don't think I can completely deprive myself of cheese again, lol.

cheese cravings

Hey! I just wanted to say I found these great recipes for making NUT cheeses! very healthful, easy to make (in a food processor) they are in a book called Kitchen Garden cook book, by Sproutman. I have made these cheese several times, and I frequently make them in my own stuffed pastas with my pasta machine. They are delicious tasting and have none of those awful deleterious affects that cheese always seems to have! I have worked in food service, and cheese is people's number one craving, I believe over other meats as well. It is a highly addictive substance, but it is really just the savory texture that we are used to craving. This can be so easily substituted, that you will overjoice that I have offered you these recipes. Peace! Tracy

Cancer Blog Survey

Dear Bloggers:

You have probably received this message a month ago, but we still need your help. Can you help us with our cancer blog survey? We are posting the original message again. Can you encourage visitors to complete the survey and make the survey link visible on your homepage? You are also welcome to participate in our study. For those of you who have already participated, we deeply appreciate your help. Thanks in advance!

This is a message to those of you who maintain/read/participate in blogs related to cancer. Might we request your assistance in an academic study about cancer blog usage?

My name is Deborah Chung, and I am an assistant professor at the University of Kentucky School of Journalism and Telecommunications. My research focuses on the use of new communication technologies and their potential to empower information consumers. Currently, I am interested in examining how health information seekers, particularly cancer patients and their families/friends, adopt blogs.

I am teaming up with Dr. Sujin Kim, also at UK, who is an assistant professor in the School of Library and Information Science and has a sub-specialization in medical informatics. She has been working closely with the UK Cancer Center to build a biorepository information system (UK-BIS) for lung and ovarian cancer samples. Together, we would like to learn about how new information channels, such as blogs, are being used by cancer patients and their families/friends — specifically we are interested in their motivations, uses and consequences of using blogs.

As approved by our internal review board (IRB) at UK, this study is an anonymous survey that does not carry any risks to cancer patients. At the same time, we believe the information gathered from this study will greatly contribute to our understanding of the adoption of new communication technologies by cancer patients. This information will in turn assist in supporting the needs of cancer patients for future information technology and service development.

Thus, we would appreciate your participation in our survey. You can find the survey here. You might get a notice regarding the validity of the certificate. If that happens, please continue to proceed. If for some reason you cannot access the site, please try pasting the following address into your browser: https://wintis.mowsey.org/survey/.

We appreciate your time, and thank you in advance for your help.

I started going dairyless after reading "The China Study"

I find that my mealtime food cravings are gone. I guess milk products produce the cravings.

Yesterday I ordered a juicer.....plan on adding a vegetable (beet) drink to my eating routine in the morning.
