For some time there has been a Page Title — in the upper right hand corner of the header menu — called “Window Shopping.” If you clicked on it, you would see a browser window that goes directly to the Best Life International website, and their “Soy Amazing” ™ Meal Replacement shake.
That was it. […]
Source of the Recipe
This “recipe” is something I have adapted from a New York Times post six weeks ago or so about making coffee without using fossil fuels. The writer wanted iced coffee, and learned the following method of making it.

Also, in blog statistics I noted that someone came here on a […]
Read the following in conjunction with the Page on this blog called IBS Triggers.
I’ve just added the blog “Confessions of a Bathroom Dweller” to the list of links. The author has a post on not going the extra mile, “Sprite is an Essential Food Group!”
In part, she says:
Someone found my little corner of the blog word by typing in:
“is sprite bad for people with IBS”
ahhh….someone after my own heart. You see, I know carbonation is “bad” for people with IBS. My brain knows that it is not smart to intentionally consume something that will add air to my system. But of everything I have had to give up or modify to deal with my IBS, Sprite is the ONE thing I REFUSE to give up.
For me, it’s coffee–well, at least some coffee. Not very much. About 1/4 of a cup, mixed with mocha soy, but some.
OK. We all do it, we all pay a price.
What we could do:
- Cut down the amount - just one Sprite, ™ less than one cup of coffee spread throughout the day
- Diminish the effect - let the Sprite ™ go flat before you drink it, mix the coffee with non-coffee compatibles
- Share it so you eat or drink less
- Make it with substitutes - soymilk instead of milk,
- Chew it carefully (pecans, almonds) or grind it up
- Use it in powdered form - powdered cocoa, not chocolate, not even dark chocolate with no dairy and no sweetener
- Give it up for IBS control?>
What’s your favorite dodge on the “essential food groups” plaint?
If you are struggling to stay on a diet that avoids triggers for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), and miss crunchy foods like nuts and crispy chocolate bars, try this.
Drink hot chocolate made with Hershey’s Cocoa ™(unsweetened), not water, and Stevia — at the same time you are eating crunchy, cruchy Mariani Banana Chips ™. Lots […]
Well, tonight I was almost out of the Stevita Delight Choclate Powder I mentioned in the last post. I do most of my ordering at the beginning of the month, and it takes many places five days (at best) to get an order to me.
But I did have on hand some Stevia, in the form […]
Life would not be complete without chocolate.
Discovering that I could not tolerate any dairy products meant, most of all, that almost anything with chocolate sold in an ordinary drugstore, convenience store, or grocery store was out of the question. The exceptions are chocolate soymilk and chocolate powder (not powder for making cocoa or chocolate milk).
