The app freezes on the iPad so I am unable to submit new versions to the App Store until it works. I’ve been trying everything to no avail. I will try something else this weekend.
I’m not too confident. I think my only course of action is to rewrite the app from the ground up, which may not be a bad idea, seeing I first developed this app in 2010. Things have changed and improved since then.
I promise to make things better, and not take away any features if I can help it. This won’t be quick though, likely several months of work.
Thanks for your patience.
I think I have finally figured out why the app is not responsive on newer iPads, which support multi-window/multi-tasking!
I never set up my app to support the feature. I will be working to get this fixed this weekend!
It really doesn’t work, and it’s buggy. Apple has a new way of syncing across devices which I will explore and hope to implement soon.
I plan on having it removed by the end of March, although I doubt anyone uses it!
So much for a new recipe every week! Anyway here’s a new favorite of mine, a all in one pan Lemon Chicken with Spinach. I added extra greens, namely, arugula, dandelion greens, and cut up romaine lettuce. Find the recipe here.
If you like red lentil soup, then you’ll love this one, Greek Red Lentil Soup.
I’ll be trying to post a new recipe every week, mainly from The Mediterranean Dish, but other sources as well.
I hope you all enjoy!
According to this study yes. In fact what you eat impacts the bacteria in the gut, which in turn impacts your blood pressure.
According to this article, they certainly can! Tomatoes and olive oil lead the pack.
According to the article, “Tomatoes are rich in an antioxidant called lycopene, which has been shown to improve vascular function and help protect against disease.”
And for olive oil, “Swapping out butter, which is rich in saturated fats, for something that’s rich in monounsaturated fats like olive oil can also help reduce your risk of heart disease. In one evaluation, researchers found that increasing olive oil consumption by as little as 5 grams (for context, a tablespoon contains 13.3 grams) was associated with a 7% reduction of CHD incidence, a 4% reduction of CVD incidence, and an 8% reduction of death from CVD.”
Then this article in Eat This Not That!, provides four reasons why you may want to consider it. Personally I eat more plant based than not, but added seafood for protein, as I never met a bean I liked! I also do not miss land based protein at all.
My cardiologist last year suggested last year, that I move towards a plant based diet. I eliminated all land based animal protein, and limited my dairy intake. I quickly discovered though, I do not like beans, and only like red lentils, nor do I want to be vegan.
Where was I going to get enough protein? My nutritionist suggested adding seafood! I love seafood!
It then dawned on me, that the Mediterranean Diet was close to what I was already doing! If your curious about this diet, then check out this link.
I ordered a new cookbook on Amazon, and I’m very excited to start this incredibly healthy way of eating!
I’m very unhappy with the company hosting my domain, so I am moving it to a new company. I’m not sure what disruption this will create for the blog and email support, but it should be temporary.
I’m also going to rewrite the app to hopefully fix that dreaded database error! I’m fairly certain trying to have iCloud syncing caused it. I’m going to remove that feature, that never really worked, and will look for an alternative.
The re-write will take several months, but I hope the result is worth it!
I’ve also have started looking at health articles again, and look forward to posting new diet tips and recipes!
