i have questions about mushrooms. are these ok to eat? specifically the white button mushrooms. i've been reading positive things about mushrooms but then i came across some bad things. like mushrooms should be avoided because they have yeast in them. so i'm really confused about what to do. should i not eat them?

Unless you have allergies I don't see why there should be any issues with mushrooms.

Mushrooms are fine, unless you want to do a strict anti candida diet which is a temporary measure. They do not contain yeast. They are a fungus, like yeast.

Great blog for Thai food! A lot of the things are acne friendly, and I linked to tom kha gai, which I'm very fond of. Your Asian Market will carry the harder to find things like lemon grass, kaffir lime, and galangal. Don't substitute powders them for powders! There are a variety of pastes you can buy from markets that are usually entirely whole food ingredients, though I haven't seen one for tom kha gai. Aroy-D in the coconut milk section is just coconut milk and water, and they have a variety of sizes and consistencies. Another thing I've read is substituting peanut oil and peanuts with almond butter and toasted sesame oil in pad thai and other dishes. Haven't tried it yet to really compare, but there are a number of other Thai recipes that you don't have to modify to be acne-friendly.

Chichi has a bunch of great recipe for offal. You can get quality offal meats for the same price as offal meats, so learning to cook good offal meals is a great way to save money while still maintaining a nutrient dense diet.

As a sample of one of my favorite's, here is 4 ways to cook beef heart. Grass fed, pastured, organic beef heart from one farmer at my market is $3 a lb, not much more than cafo ground beef.

Unpinned for some reason so I thought I'd bump it. And I added a link to the first post in the good things thread.. I wonder what all else has been lost, such as from the supplement sub forum.

Several recipes and techniques I plan to try, experiment, post, comment on in the appropriate thread, etc. But it's too hard to do on the ipad. The strawberry oat squares had a jam recipe in which chia seeds are the thickener. Must check that out. The coconut gluten free cake was for a basic cake recipe to use to make a dump cake. This is where you put fruit or whatever, usually canned pie filling, in the bottom of a baking dish, then sprinkle on a box of cake mix dry. Not mixed with any wet ingredients. And then you dot with pats of butter and bake. It's a great technique. I just don't want to do it with canned pie filling and boxed cake mix. And i want to do it with dried coconut.

This is what I made today for a low-histamine, antiinflammatory, low GI elimination diet with a lot of restrictions at the initial stage. This was surprisingly filling! Baked sweet potato, green veggies (kale and spinach mostly), and zucchini sauteed in grapeseed oil with basil and garlic. Very easy and quick, perfect for the culinary challenged like me.
