Re: How much iodised salt do vegans need?

I put about a third of a teaspoon of iodized salt in my nut mix. Speaking of salting dry foods, I got the impression that salt could end up being irritating, if not mixed with water, after I tried supplementing a pinch of coarse sea salt as a snack throughout the day. I was just looking this up too...

Re: "Going" green

Watering the grass is still working out, as such. It's all green as ever, even where I've repeatedly soaked it with pee.

Re: Adulterated food, etc.

I was thinking about this again today (not much differently, just with a bigger picture in mind). It's a wonder how they manage to concoct all kinds of legal or illegal drugs here, yet can't simply grow some spice. :? I think people want to keep the spice trade the way it is, and keep its problems o...

Re: Adulterated food, etc.

So I'm looking up some of the other powders on my shelf... It isn't just the stuff from India; for example, most of the garlic is from China ( oh, great, wall... of Shinola ), and it was recently suspected of adulteration, as well. One of the world's foremost experts on food fraud is warning about t...
