    "kidneys respond to excess sodium by flushing it out in the urine. Unfortunately, this also removes potassium. If potassium levels are low, the body tries to hoard it, which also means hanging onto sodium. Water

You mix cottage cheese (I used like 3-4 TBS) with 2 TBS milk a whole bunch of spices (dill, parsley, onion, garlic, salt) and water (or chicken broth) to desired consistency. I made it pretty thin so it goes farther. It is AWESOME! It made about 5 oz worth. So, I'm thinking I can have the jar last about 1-2 weeks if I use it ever so sparingly to just add some

  7. Dieter's Prayer by Julie Thompson

    Lord, my soul is ripped with riot
    incited by my wicked diet.
    “We are what we eat,” said a wise old man!
    And, Lord, if that’s true, I’m a garbage can !

    I want to rise on Judgment Day, that’s plain,
    But, at my present weight, I’ll need a crane.
    So grant me strength, that I may not fall
    Into the clutches of cholesterol !

    At margarine I’ll never mutter
    For the road to hell is paved with butter.
    And cream ...

  10. P2 Spicy Shrimp Tomato Soup

    by , March 28th, 2011 at 09:53 PM (Food Tastes Good but THIN is Mouth Watering)
    I took jarred chopped garlic and put about 1 1/2 tbsp into the bottom of the pan and added the chopped shrimp. I sort of stir fried this in the bottom of the hot pan because the heat will release the flavor in the garlic. Then I coated it pretty well with old bay seasoning.

    Then I added about 3/4 cup of water with one bouilion cube (I was out of the chicken broth) and my serving of tomatoes (7 ounces). I brought it to a boil and added more old bay seasonings so that it would spicy. ...
