Sinlessly Delicious Recipes

Sinlessly Delicious Recipes
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. My surgery went very well, and I’m up and about and feeling more normal every day. Your emails and messages of support have meant so much to me and are surely speeding up my recovery. Resting and recuperating gave me an unexpected opportunity to sample other people’s cooking. For the first week post-surgery, friends brought food daily, and it was a great help and comfort not to have to worry about feeding my family. The meals were all vegan, nutritious, and delicious, and I acquired a couple of new recipes that I’ll be making for myself (and sharing with you) soon.

Distressing Salad Dressings With Artificial Additives Some government agencies have decided that it is just fine to add several substances to processed edible products. Many of them are things that we wouldn't normally recognize as food. There are more than 1,400 different approved food additives listed in Codex Alimentarius, ("food book") of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN and the World Health Organization whose main purpose is "to protect the health of consumers". The list includes additives to color food, to stabilize color or retain color, as well as others to keep food from caking, or foaming or doing something else that it might really want to do in its natural state. Other additions may emulsify, liquefy or firm a product, or cause a mixture to gel or glaze.
