Reality Check

Okay. Time to get serious about taking pictures of all my food intake... again. My last doctor visit proved that my weight hasn't changed in a year and my blood pressure is not improving.

Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise… in Progress

I am working on "wealth."  Health seems to be ever elusive.  I do know that it's all in my choices.  I was all set to eat more salads and then the Romaine lettuce scare took all the lettuce and pre-chopped salads out of the stores.  It makes it real hard to eat a salad a… Continue reading Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise… in Progress

Struggling to Keep the Plants Healthy Plant Food

Snap!  It is hard to keep up good eating habits when I am NEVER home!  As a result I end up grabbing things I know are not the most helpful.  But I do what I can and sadly, feel frustrated that I don't have time for better choices.

Veggie Life on the Run

It's been a good week of eating a plant based diet. The thing is, the garden, the farmer's market and the farmer's co-op makes it so easy! The only real complication is time... time to prepare and time to chew. It seriously takes more time to chew fresh, raw plants, then it does to chew… Continue reading Veggie Life on the Run
