I buy extra virgin olive oil at Trader Joe's. They have a good selection of fine product at reasonable prices.


What a fraud, for sure!! It's a good thing you are a smart shopper and look at the labels. I also buy my olive oil at Trader Joe's. It's not like I can go down to an Italian market down the street like back east. I get the cold-pressed evo. But they didn't have the exact one I usually buy the last time I was in there. So, I had to buy the cold pressed olive oil that also had olives from Spain. Take a look at the bottles. If you do not read it carefully then you can buy something you don't want and get duped.

Comparison.

TB, I buy Bellucci and in smaller quantities since it loses alot of its flavor over time. I'm going to try a California brand one of these days.

You live pretty close to me. Just over the hill and around the corner. There is one place I ABSOLUTELY LOVE over by you. It's on Santiago Blvd. The place is called Rockwell's and let me tell you, they have thee BEST cakes. Chocolate curl cakes they sell with the Venetian cream and strawberries are soooooo GOOD. My mouth is watering just thinking about it grin They have good food too but I go there for the bakery. Have you ever been there?

I wonder if deep dish pizza is good here, is it? I'm a thin crust pizza lover so I wouldn't know.

Don't worry about those few pounds. Just think of all that good food you'll be missing out on lol


Two Guys in Jersey where the food is so good that no one ever complains about it...or else!

Five Guys is a chain that's growing and they have really good burgers. I know there's one on Tustin and Katella in Orange, and others in Fullerton, Tustin, Brea and Huntington Beach. None in Anaheim Hills or Yorba Linda yet.

Haven't been to Rockwell's, but I've passed it by several times. It's in the Ralph's shopping center. I'll have to think about it. I'm not as into sweets as I am into meat, and I've been holding off on the meat.

For Chicago-style pizza, Rance's in Costa Mesa was really good. There's also Tony's Little Italy in Placentia.

Have you been Barolo Italian Cafe on Newport Avenue in Tustin? It was supposed to have been the place where L.A. mob guys hung out in the 1990s or so. Real authentic Italian food.

Lol That joke you made about two guys was pretty funny. Two Guys was a discount store in Jersey. (Two Guys from Harrison) My Dad would always make jokes about that store.

If you're not that into sweets then maybe you should skip Rockwell's.

Some of the food trucks have really good burgers. I wish I could remember the name of the one I liked. I think it was Monster Burger. They'd all park at the high school lot every Thursday to compete.

Red Robin had a tasty burger my girlfriend and I split. It was so delicious that we wished we had ordered our own. Farmer Boys burgers are good. And their fried zucchini are just perfect.

Rance's Pizza-- That's right I keep forgetting to go to Rance's to try it out. I'm hardly ever down in south county.

I don't think I've ever been to Barolo's. We used to go to De Luca's in Whittier back in the 90's.

And so far with my carrot, sweet potato, and olive oil experiment, I notice that my skin looks healthier and feels much smoother. But my eyesight is the same lol

I can talk about food all day long lol

AG,

that side by side picture you put up is great. I GUARANTEE that countless fights/arguments were caused by that deceptive labeling

wife" why didn't you pick up the stuff I asked for?"

husband "what are you talking about?..I wrote it down...extra virgin olive oil FROM Italy, so there...leave me alone"


lol

F1,

Have you been able to maintain the vegan lifestyle this holiday season? The reason I ask is, had a buddy who was diagnosed with diabetes so whenever we all went over to see him...we'd bring over food that he could eat and eat along with him. Just to show that support.

Now, it's unreasonable to expect people to do that for family holiday meals. So,did you have to fix a special plate at Thanksgiving?

lol lol Gets. Definitely can start up an argument, that's for sure. The labels are so misleading.

The other day I picked up orange juice. I didn't notice that it said High Pulp. So when I started drinking it I got a mouthful of pulp lol lol just like Grandma used to make. Nobody wanted to drink it so I just strained it and it's good as new. I put masking tape over the high pulp part and said I bought a new one lmao and everybody's drinking it. shhh

My wife made me a special plate LOL. There were a couple times I did eat something with meat in it because of circumstances. Going out is hard because without the meat and dairy there's really nothing there. One place I can do is Chipotle. I usually get black bean and brown rice burritos with avocado. Flame Broiler is doable too. (Don't know if they have these in the rest of the country.)

I do get cravings for Carls Jr and In-N-Out sometimes, but despite their awesome flavor, there's a feeling I get after I eat their burgers that isn't good. My skin will feel greasy and will feel sort of run down despite enjoying the flavors. If I go to Subway and get a breakfast flat bread sandwich with egg whites and no cheese I don't get that feeling of being run down.

F1,

The important thing is sticking to it. The occasional meat or dairy isn't a problem because you're not on a diet, you've changed your eating habits for the long term.

There are a handful of Chipotles out here and tons of Tex-Mex types of places. Person can eat very healthy for little money at these places.

Find out if any of the burger joints out there have Mushroom burgers...if prepared well...they taste pretty good.

Gets,

Yes, it's more of a lifestyle. One of the problems with those mushroom burgers is that they may cook them in oil or butter, which defeats the purpose. It has to be vegan style, which is harder to find. There are some vegan places out there, but they're usually way overpriced. If I go to Subway and want it without the bread, they charge $1.75 more! They charge you more money for less food! At least at In-N-Out they charge you less if you skip the bun and eat it protein style. So that's the kind of thing we run into. It's worth it in the long run, but basically you have to prepare your food early.

If you want snack food you can cut up some apples, seedless grapes, celery, broccoli, cauliflower and/or carrots mixed with some nuts and put it in a bowl, but it has to be eaten within a few days before it rots. Dried fruit works too, but a lot of the dried fruit in the markets are sugared, and even on the dried fruit without sugar they are calorie heavy. A lot of trial and error, so maybe I'll come up with something else in the future.

lol lol Gets.

Faithful1, years ago I used to eat at a place in Fullerton called Skinny Haven. Too bad it closed. Ever eat there? They had very healthy entrées. Have you eaten at Rutabegorz? They have a pretty decent selection for vegetarians. There's a place called Mead's Green Door cafe that caters to vegans. Do you know about that place, it's in Orange.

AG,

I remember Skinny Haven. Haven't heard that name in years. I may have gone there once or twice, but since until recently I lived in the Huntington Beach area I didn't make over there much. I've heard of Rutabegorz, but not eaten there, same with Mead's. A place I really enjoyed was Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop at the SOCO mall in Costa Mesa. The food and atmosphere were both great. If you're ever out there it's worth a stop.

I was so sorry to see Skinny Haven close. Rutabegorz is a little bland imo. But I haven't been there in about two years so maybe they spiced up their menu a bit. I'll have to try the place in Costa Mesa you mentioned.

I use Berlucci's. I buy a small amount so that I can use it up in a timely manner.

How is the Tom's deodorant? I had the same concerns about the natural deodorants that I first had about the bleach alternatives, that they wouldn't be strong enough.

I use the Arm&Hammer deodorant...which is a halfway step towards using fully natural deodorants. I know you work out, so if the Tom's holds up to an active guy, I think I'm gonna load up during the holiday season sales.




Been a while but Dr. Bronner is always in my house now, I have been using it to make my own body wash, using this recipeso thanks for the recommendation Gets.

In regards to deodorant, I have been using Sams Natural for the last 2 months, which works better than Toms of Maine in regards to lasting scent

@ F1

How is your vegan or vegetarian diet going and how is being a grandfather treating you?

Been strongly thinking about giving up meat and dairy entirely.

Just food for thought for anyone else pondering the idea http://plantbasedonabudget.com/
