Okay... I am going to try again to document what I put into my mouth just to help me be mindful of the things I am choosing to nourish myself with. I am hoping that mindful eating will help me rejuvenate my healthy eating habits. Mindfulness is a form of meditation that helps a person… Continue reading Resetting my mindful eating goals
I am still working on my health journey, but I have lost focus... especially in taking pictures of meals and reporting... and even in tracking every morsel, calorie, and mirco-nutrient. I think that I lost focus and interest in tracking all that stuff when after being on a plateau for several months. Sure, I lost… Continue reading Second Jump Start – My Health Journey
I've been thinking about how I can get my rear in gear and get back into the habit of tracking my meals and help. I have also been reading a little about the diets of practicing Buddhist and Hindu. There is a little of what I have learned that can assist me in my efforts… Continue reading Can I Eat Like a Buddhist?
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.

Okay... I really need to make more time for food. Today I had trouble finding the time to make and eat food. So much to do and so little time to do it! I am happy to report that I didn't cave and eat crappy food just because I was starving. Last week was a… Continue reading Ending My Summer, but Keeping Plant Power!
It's been a good week for veggie eating. Monday I had a dentist appointment and my face was numb for half the day. Jamba Juice to the rescue! I had a Greens with added ginger smoothie. When my face woke up I had a veggie dog... plain. Dinner was a cabbage from the garden with… Continue reading Veggies and more veggies
