I just purchased tapioca sticks by Hu Tieu Bot Loc. It looks like bean noodles normally used in Asian dishes. The ingredients are tapioca, salt, and water. Has anyone used this before and could share a recipe or two? I could not find any... (more)

I've never used tapioca sticks/noodles, but hu tieu (the dish + what these are for) is sort of like pho's crazy cousin... It's basically noodles in a pork and seafood broth, garnished with herbs (mainly garlic chives and chinese celery I... (more)

So I'm aiming to become HEALTHIER to have better skin, better body, better growth, etc. Then I came across the Paleo Diet. I felt like my meals and snacks were unhealthy. You'll see what I mean here: Breakfast: -1-minute Quaker Oatmeal with 1/2... (more)

Your diet is so far ahead of most teens - congrats! Instead of sweetened yogurts/oatmeal maybe try unsweetened plain kefir. Also, try coconut milk. Do you do smoothies? It looks like you are eating a Perfect Health Diet style plan. Google that for... (more)

mmmmm msg. They put flour and sugar in sauces and soups without telling you, too. And soy, soy everywhere. I wouldn't even try, honestly.

I'm aware that mooncakes don't pass the paleo purity test, but I'm not looking for an optimal food, just a once-annually treat that won't give me IBS flareups. I've seen some in Taiwan that were made with mochi and other other things, but I don't... (more)

How do you know if a food is organic/wild/grass-fed at Asian markets such as meat, seafood, and produce?

zoomia 0 · May 27, 2011 at 2:09 PM

I think you can pretty much assume that no meat is grassfed or organic, and that no produce is organic. Fish is a whole other ball of wax. I'm lucky in that the Lucky 99 Ranch I go to marks all their seafood with whether it is farmed or wild, and... (more)

You're playing with your hormones by doing this. Why do you want to lose weight? You are in your growing years and I assume you have already started menstruating. If so, I hope you don't lose your period by doing what you're doing. Females need... (more)

DKA sounds to me like T1 diabetes. In practice it takes very little endogenous insulin production to put a "brake" on ketoacidosis, very few T2 (even those with very broken endocrine systems) ever experience DKA. I am pretty certain that your lack... (more)

Okay, so I've read a lot of the research about why soy is bad, and while I'm somewhat convinced, I still don't think anyone has properly addressed the "Asian argument", ie the fact that a lot of traditional Asian diets contain a lot of soy. For... (more)

One way to infer the quality of their meat is to look at the quality of everything else in the store. Asian markets around the Midwest where I live sell foods that make SAD look HAPPY, so I can't imagine the owners putting too much effort into... (more)
