I wish my folks hadn't taught me that junk food is what you get as a reward for doing a good job. I would be so much better off now. They started off well, giving me fruit and sunflower seeds as snacks, etc, but then I remember getting french fries after my eye surgery, and candy at holidays, and all that, and here I am, about seventy pounds over weight with missing teeth. Gee, thanks, mom. It's not so much her fault now because I make my own choices, but it is hard to overcome early training. They also got me things like double cheese burgers when I should have had a single. PORTION CONTROL.... hello, have they heard of it?View Thread
Hi! The Rainbow Challenge is where everybody posts what colors of the rainbow they ate, or will eat, during the day. Colorful foods tend to be goot for you and full of nutrition. For example, sweet potato and carrot would be orange, beet would be red, blueberry would be blue or purple, red onion would also be red, squash would be yellow, bok choy green, and so on.View Thread
That's so good it should really be a tip. Also, it's pretty simple to hit control A, then control C. That will select all, then copy everything for you. In case your post gets eaten, you'll be ready to paste.View Thread
Since I'm the queen of tooth pain, I do have a suggestion if you can stand the taste of cloves. If you really want a cheap mouth wash that disinfects and takes away pain, dump some powdered cloves, or crushed whole cloves, into at least a pint of water. It's best to keep it in an old water bottle, I use an old 20 ounce soda bottle or sports drink bottle. The amount isn't too important, you can use a couple tablespoon up to an ounce or so. Shake it really good, then let it settle. If you want to be fancy I suppose you could filter it through a coffee filter.
When you want to use the mouth wash, take a mouthful, swish it really good, then spit and rinse with fresh water to get the grit out.
Some folks always say "eeeew! I hate cloves!" I walways wonder how badly they want to get rid of the pain? This stuff works better than anbesol. And it kills germs.View Thread
Sorry to hear you are in pain, Kim! I wish you the best of luck with the Nap Diet. I'm sure they'll be able to fix you right up. You probably have an infection but that clears up really quickly with antibiotics. Hang in there!
