Re: Any NORCAL folks interested in a get together?

My goal for the first meeting would be to get the maximum number of our group able to attend by making the location convenient and a date when they could attend. We co...

Re: 81 and still sane--I think!

Thank you Tincup and Circular for the info about resistant starch. I am not keen on cooking and usually make big batches of whatever I cook creating a week's worth of steelcut oats with blueberries and vegetable stews (including my favorite, potatoes) so I don't have to do major cooking too often.

Re: 81 and still sane--I think!

Circular, does the glycemic effect of potatoes that are cooked and cooled (left in the refrigerator over night) retain the resistant starch if you reheat them or must they be eaten cold?

Re: Joining the conversation

You can certainly enjoy desert now. Just choose a healthful one. How great that you were able to retire from your stressful job and do work that you enjoy. I retired at 60 and will be 82 next month. I'm so glad I had all those years to do what I enjoy doing. Being in good spirits and enjoying your l...
