You Can Eat Carbs

Carbs, fats, proteins- it makes little difference.
There are 4 Calories in each gram of carbs or proteins; 9 Calories in each gram of fat.
Is's not so much what you eat as how much you eat and how active you are.(Assuming you have normal metabolism).
The main causes of obesity are two: (1) over-abundance of food, and (2) inactivity.

Lays Potato Chips --World-Wide-- Flavors

I recently "Googled" "Lays Potato Chips flavors world-wide" and was surprised to find that over 200 flavors were listed.
Some flavors sound interesting; some disgusting.
Take a look and let us have your comments.

BEST Liver and Onions

Calf liver or chicken liver? The difference is significant.

Looking for jars of Putter's Dill pickles

I've seen them for sale at Sobey's in Thornhill

Herring

Manischewitz, of course. I prefer the thick syrupy Concord grape wine. Its sweetness perfectly balances the saltiness of the herring.
L'Chaim.

Herring

There are many different kinds of herring... pickled, schmaltz, in wine sauce etc. And they are all delicious.
As far as I'm concerned there is no style of herring that is "bad", Heaven forbid.
My favourite happens to be matjes herring but I realize my choice is open to challenge.
What is your favourite kind of herring.

Starbucks

Sarbucks has announced this week that it is raising its coffee prices by 10 to 20 cents per serving.
The price of coffee beans has been steadily falling for the past year or so.
What gives? Profits not high enough? CEO Shultz is being a hypocrite in my opinion.
How to respond?
(1) Boycott Starbucks?
(2) Do nothing and pay more?
(3) But shares of Starbucks ?
(4) Other?

Elk steaks, roast goose... maybe coming our way

How exotic!
My fantasy is to taste giraffe meat.
You must certainly be aware that giraffe is a kosher animal.
One small problem, however: Where on the giraffe's neck is the shechitah performed? At the top of the neck,at the middle of the neck or at the lower end???

The Old Toronto Restaurants you make the wishes for the comeback

Were the hot dogs known as Ritz Carlton?

The Old Toronto Restaurants you make the wishes for the comeback

I believe the name of the donut place was called Downyflake Donuts,

The Old Toronto Restaurants you make the wishes for the comeback

I believe it was called "The Noshery." The Noshery was originally located on Eglinton Ave West a few blocks west of Avenue Rd.
I think the Yorkdale location was then taken over as the Pickle Barrel.

Downtown Toronto ??

AdinaA: Get in touch with the Windsor Arms Hotel on St. Thomas St. near Yonge St. and Bloor St. They have a kosher kitchen and may provide kosher takeout service. I have never eaten there so I can't personally comment on quality or prices, but I imagine you will be pricey but top-quality. Good luck.

SUMMERLICIOUS 2014

Summerlicious 2014 begins July 4th and continues until July 20th.
Please tell us about your experiences, both positive and negative.

I'm so over...

"Enriched" and/or "Fortified"
These words usually refer to vitamins or minerals and sound impressive, but as in so many cases probably unnecessary in our overnourished Western society.

Also, has anyone mentioned the term "macrobiotic"? Whatever that means.

Butter versus Margarine

Allow me to elaborate.
When I attended Medical School (1958-62) the accepted wisdom and teaching about the relationship between diet and cardiovascular diseases was based on the research studies of Dr. Ancel Keys, (Ph.D.)
This was considered gospel for the next 30 years or so.
Those old enough will remember when Dr. Robert Atkins challenged Keys in the early '70's his low carbohydrate, unlimited fat diet was considered heresy by the medical profesion and registered dietitians and fell into disrepute. Only in the last 15-20 years has the Medical profession come to accept Dr. Atkins' theory; but not completely. There are still many cardiologists and dietitians that cling to Dr. Keys' theory.
Of course, moderation and common sense should be the basis of any healthful diet along with exercise, weight control, and smoking cessation
