    Night_Bear got a reaction from whitjm5 in Chipotle?   
    Soybean and canola oil are so perverse in foods we don't cook at home. It's nearly unavoidable! That's why I try to limit my meals out and save up for the dank grass-fed meats. I was at Whole Foods today and most of the prepared food and meat had some combo of soy oil, soysauce, or expeller pressed canola oil. It's just a much cheaper alt. to EVOO. Thanks everyone for the useful info about Chipolte!

    Free the tea! Loose leaf is the way to go. No guessing what's in it either. But go organic when possible.
    If you've got an herbal/alternative medicine store in your area, they'll hook you up. Or just go online. Egyptian Chamomile is the best. I also like lemon grass, lemon balm and licorice root (good for the throat), Rooibois is also satisfying too.
    Chinese and Japanese green and oolong tea are my picks. Iron Goddess and Gyokuro/Matcha are my favorites right now.
    For the coffee fiends, I suggest yerba mate (that's what I'm drinking atm, it's great when made with a French press), matcha tea and roasted carob tea.

    I would go to Costa Rica (we've been trying to plan a trip there for ages). We'd rent a house on the beach, close enough to town that we could hit the market for fresh produce and fish. Our house would have an awesome kitchen, where we'd cook all of our own food... but we'd also have daily cleaning service, so we never had to clean up after ourselves.
    Fresh fish and seafood, mango salsa (we'd go during mango season, of course), fruit smoothies (because when you're on vacation, it's okay to go a little crazy), and tons and tons of fresh salads, because when I'm south of the border, I'm always craving greens.
    There would also be this little place in town that served pulled pork, chicken, and beef, and they could make us lettuce tacos with fresh salsa and mole sauce any time we asked. Yum.
    I'd focus a ton of fun and play, and surf, paddleboard, and do yoga. There would also be awesome mountain biking trails nearby in the hills (hey, it's MY vacation), and we'd take our bikes up there a few times, too.
    And we'd find an awesome, giant boat to take us fishing and snorkeling, and we'd eat fish we caught right off the boat, sushi-style. I forgot about that part.
    Heaven.
    Someday.
