Good job using your blender so soon after buying it! Often when I get a new toy it takes months for me to be brave enough to try it. Like the bread machine.


#1288

I miss having a bread machine!!! The smell of freshly baked bread is heavenly. That being said, when I’ve made bread from scratch it looks more like a communion wafer than a loaf of bread! Baking isn’t natural for me. Clearly.


#1289

Same. I still don’t understand all the settings on it. Especially where you use it to make a dough that doesnt cook in the machine. And it is kind of a waste of space at this point because I don’t eat much bread anyway and now that I am back in mini-diet mode I rarely buy bread unless it is the 35 calories a slice kind.

Now if I can learn to make that in the bread machine…

Back in the ninetees everyone suddenly got a breadmachine…then as fast as they appeared they became paper weights…:wink:


#1291

Fresh bananas, strawberries, coconut water, and Thai basil smoothies.


#1292

Stuffed shells and a cheddar biscout.


#1293

Fresh raspberry, banana, and ginger smoothies with coconut water. I know I should watch the sugar with my candidiasis, but I can’t eat ice cream or anything like that so this is my humble attempt to “treat yo’ self” (Parks and Rec reference).


#1294

Lamb chili cheese dogs and beet and caraway sauerkraut topped dogs. BTW, my husband ate them. I had a lowly hot dog with yellow mustard. Because I’m a basic bitch. :grin:


#1298

So I have a question. How do you make yourself eat? Like looking at or thinking about food is making me nauseous. Any advice on how to make sure I get enough food in me?


#1299

How long have you been sober? I do a lot of small meals (like an ounce of cheese and some carrots) or a banana throughout the day. Also mint tea helps settle my stomach.


#1300

Only 9 days. Before that a month. But mine is self harm and restricting, so… I also try to do small meals, but I feel nauseous a lot, and part of my past was not eating, so I need to figure out how to eat a good amount of food even when food makes me nauseous. Ahhhh. Long. Sorry.
Hmm. Mint tea might help, thanks. Ill try that in the morning.


#1301

Ah, not a long story at all. I’m glad you shared. I also used to suffer from self harm and an eating disorder. Well done on 9 days! That’s huge. Ginger candy can also help with nausea. I’m often nauseated so I have a million tricks.


#1302

Thanks😊 and thank you for sharing as well. What’s ginger candy and where do I get it, lol?


#1303

I’ve not tried that, but now I have a new thing to cook. Thanks, they sound like yummy ideas!


#1304

You can find ginger candy in Asian markets, Wegmans, and definitely online. They’re small, spicy, chewy candies. I like them. Also smelling isopropyl alcohol can curb nausea. I keep swabs in my purse for nausea outside of home. Lol.


#1305

Huh. Cool. I’mma try to find that candy. Isopropyl alcohol is to strong for me lol.


#1306

You don’t drink it! It’s poison. I put some on a paper towel and use it on my wrists to help with the nausea.


#1307

Not the same thing, but candied ginger might do the same thing.


#1309

That works too. Crystalized ginger. Whatever. Ginger tea.


#1310

Me neither! Especially gluten free…lol
