Lea & Perrins is the original Worcestershire sauce, and is widely available. It contains neither soy nor gluten. In fact, in a cursory look at the ingredients label, it doesn't have other funky ingredients, either. Real food, I'd say.
Yep, another question related to breastfeeding! There will probably be more! :D (For those who read my previous questions, my body fought off the infection on its own and my nipples are doing so much better!!! :D But, I did use some... (more)
So in my CSA this week we got a small bunch of edamame, and the farmer emailed everyone and asked for feedback because he was thinking about planting more. Well, my feedback was of course a link outlining all of the dangers of... (more)
