The primary concern as oils age is not "nutrients" but rather rancidity. (See: http://www.oliveoiltimes.com/olive-oil-basics/good-olive-oils-gone-bad/8900 ) Since most oils are given a "best by" date of 2 years after it is bottled, the implication is that your oil is already more than 18 months old. But rancidity (and loss of nutrients) are mostly a factor of how the oil was stored. So, there is no certainty that your oil is either good or bad. It certainly has a higher risk of being at least mildly rancid. Likely, you paid a discount for accepting older oil. Unless you paid a premium price for a product tauted as being fresh, the vendor is not obligated to accept a return. So, whether you succeed at a return will depend on the vendor's desire to provide customer satisfaction vs. a low price.View Thread
Possibly too late since you had it for a specific date, but I think the answer is no. The active ingredient, polyethylene glycol 3350 breaks down in dry heat much less than the boiling point of water. It also undergoes a phase change (from solid to liquid) at about 133 degrees. So, it seems likely that it would not be the same product if it was boiled.View Thread
I also do pulled pork. Most frequently, I use it to make baked beans. But sometimes beef/chicken stew or for making stock from bones. Cooking Light (I think) had a nice recipe for slow cooked basalmic winter vegetables that I use at the holidays.View Thread
> if i can eat chicken steak with mashed potatao and stirr fried vegetables once a week as lunch?
Most any reasonable meal can be fit in.
> will it hamper my weight lose effort?
Your primary consideration is total calories in vs. out. The meal may be higher in calories than other meals. If so, you can compensate by consuming lower calorie options other parts of the day.
> is 15 minutes jogging four days a week is moderately ok for me to maintain my weight?
Any exercise is better than no exercise. In general, a weight loss program would call for more exercise. Current physical activity guidelines for Americans is to aim for at least 2.5 hours of moderate activity per week, more for weight loss.View Thread
The idea is commonplace. On the one hand it is a food. In moderate amounts it will do not harm. There is some very limited evidence it may help with some conditions. But it is far from a producer of miracles. There's a WebMD article here: http://www.webmd.com/diet/apple-cider-vinegarView Thread
You are correct that products that include "malt" or variants of malt are generally excluded from the diet of someone with Celiac due to gluten content. Remember that it is not just wheat and products of wheat which are a concern, but also rye and barley and products of those grains. Malt is usually a product of barley.
Oats are usually also forbidden by most people with Celiac, mostly because of cross-contamination. So, if you were to choose granola, you would have to look for a gluten free granola (or make your own from gluten free oats).
Sauces and many foods with long lists of ingredients are likely to have trace amounts of gluten. However, there are a lot of products on the market now which are certified gluten free. They are often in the "health" section of grocery stores or shelves.
Buckwheat (not a form of wheat) is a safe grain and makes excellent pancakes and waffles.
All of those sites have gluten free recipe suggestions and some have shopping guides as well.
Since he is a picky eater, it is important to talk to him about what he eats. No suggestions will be useful if he won't eat it.
You said, "maybe I should tell him he HAS to eat granola instead of pop tarts, not give him a choice." It is better to give him choices, but choices of foods he can eat. So, yes, do not buy the Pop-Tarts. But don't tell him he has to eat FOOD A. Rather than dwelling on his restrictions, talk to him about his choices. Chances are he doesn't really want to talk about what he can't have. And if it is something he likes, might not even admit that it causes problems. Talk to him about what he likes/wants. When it is something you know he can't have rather than tell him he can't have that, just move on ... "and what else do you like?"View Thread
