  1. and thank you so much for including my Marinated Mushrooms in your post! Great post btw I looked at the other recipes and they look fabulous! thinking I will use a few of them!

  2. Whole grain breads, cereals and pastas have high amounts of thiamin. So it has a less full bodied flavor than tamari and it has
    a larger alcohol content which isn’t necessarily a problem but there’s less flavor to it and since it has wheat in it people with
    wheat allergies and people with gluten intolerance which is a
    big percentage of the population cannot consume it.
    In reality, a number of these pills can help but only if you couple
    them with lifestyle changes.
