"Actually, I confess that I have paid attention to what other people are buying in the store. Maybe because of the dieting I was doing. I could look at other people's carts and feel superior that everything I was buying was all natural or low…"

"I can put cooked food in the blender and it works fine. I refer to this alternative composting as 'Mulch Shakes' or Garden Smoothies! Basically anything you would put down a garbage disposal can be ground up by a blender. And while such…"

Jules replied to Paula Donnan's discussion Intro and some questions about being obese
"Yes, and like Katcha mentioned, maybe come up with another word that is different from "diet". It's literal meaning isn't the one most often used and can prompt "diet mentality" thoughts on its own. I would say that you…"
