New Recipe: Beef Stew

Submitted by Miss Danielle on Wed, 03/12/2008 - 9:53am.

Check out the beef stew recipe in the Can't Eat It Recipe Book. I don't have a picture of it for my blog because...well...I ate the stew before I thought about it. It's yummy, hearty and satisfying.

 

Balsamic Blasphemy

Submitted by Miss Danielle on Mon, 03/10/2008 - 9:52am.

The Internet is a dangerous source of information. You could be getting complex financial advice on stocks and investments from Ted who actually plucks chickens for a living (not that there's anything wrong with that, but chances are, Ted doesn't have a background in finance and hasn't bought a stock in his life). And unfortunately, you wouldn't have any idea because Ted's comments are presented well on a website.

 

Yoga for Digestion

Yoga doesn't have to be origami of the body where you fold yourself into ridiculous poses and then balance on your head to relax. You aren't expected to be a contortionist when it comes to basic stretching, breathing and strengthening your core (abdomen, thighs, hips, butt).

 

Oregano: It's Not Just for Pizza Anymore

Antifungals are a hot topic for people who are trying to lower the amount of Candida Albicans in their system. As I've stated in the 'Some Pills are Hard to Swallow' section of this website, people rely too much on antifungals and take ridiculous - if not dangerous - amounts of them (in my humble opinion) without any benefit. I like to promote natural intake of antifungals (i.e. FOOD) vs commercial cleansing concoctions and prescription antifungals.

 

Grass Fed Beef

"You are what you eat". This statement is especially true for people with intolerances. But, as it's been revealed to me, that isn't the best way to phrase it. It should be:

"You are what what-you-eat eats".

 

My Recumbent Exercise Bike

Submitted by Miss Danielle on Thu, 01/17/2008 - 8:40pm.

With joint pains and a bad back, it's a challenge to find exercise methods that are effective yet not overwhelming. I've done a Bollywood dance class for a semester (great for the first 40 minutes, but too much after that), and looked into joining a gym. Truth is, I would find too many reasons not to go to a gym (including the insane fees they charge). So after some research, I chose a recumbent bicycle.

 

Pancakes

Submitted by Miss Danielle on Wed, 11/21/2007 - 11:39am.

I am fairly skeptical when it comes to pre-packaged food, but wanted to share a product I found with you. Bob's Red Mill sells gluten-free flours and mixes, available online and, at least in Canada, at most grocery stores.

What caught my attention was the pancake mix. I haven't had pancakes in years, and certainly not gluten free ones. I decided to embrace my optimistic side and give it a try.

 

Toronto Gluten Free Restaurant Guide

Submitted by Miss Danielle on Fri, 08/24/2007 - 10:28am.

Just thought I would share this. For anyone living or visiting the Toronto area, here's a link to someone's list of Gluten-Free Friendly Restaurant choices. They talk about each choice and why it made the list. It isn't a perfect list, but at least it gives you a place to start and informs you of places that may not be promoted as gluten free, but are able (or willing) to make substitutes.

And just as a side note, there is another Magic Oven located on Danforth Ave, east of Logan Ave I believe.

 

Can you see the difference?

Submitted by Miss Danielle on Tue, 07/10/2007 - 8:12am.

So, the website has been updated and reorganized. Some styling needs to be done, and a few more searchable listings added, but at least it's here.

  • Now you can add comments without signing in
  • You can search links by topic; search article and tips by type; and soon, you will be able to do the same with blogs.
  • The recipes are easier to navigate

Enjoy!

 

Website Construction

Submitted by Miss Danielle on Mon, 05/14/2007 - 2:05pm.

Summer is here. That means road construction. It also means website construction!

Can't Eat It will be undergoing a facelift. Same banners and such, but the display of content will change as we upgrade the site's content management system.

So, in the meantime, feel free to keep emailing me but be sure to write "Cant Eat It" in the title so I know chances are it isn't spam.
