Hot day on the golf course and DH and I decided to postpone grilling until tomorrow. He was happy with Ramen noodles and a turkey sandwich. I recalled I had a can of kidney beans and no specific plans for using them. DH bought them by mistake... Read more

Driving home from work yesterday I was thinking about food. Imagine that? I do that a lot. I think about menus, shopping for food, creative snacks and ways not to get bored while eating healthy side-by-side with a DH who's not there yet. ... Read more

I can't get enough of the 100% whole grain ultra thin pizza crusts I found at my local supermarket. They are ready to top (no pre-cooking required) and come in a 3-pack. One third of a crust has 24g carbs, 4g fiber, 1.5g fat, 1g sugar and only... Read more

I didn't have specific dinner ideas Tuesday, but had DH set out a package of boneless skinless chicken tenders. These can be expensive, but I found them on sale for $2.99lb and stocked up the freezer. They cook quickly and simply on the stovet... Read more

Finally made it to the small farmers market in my community on Sunday. A lot of soaps, plants, bakery items, a couple of vegetable stands, a man sharpening knives and one racing around in his wheelchair selling popcorn. There was even live mus... Read more
Yummy new breakfast "recipe"
Monday, May 30, 2016      4 comments

I've discovered that when I'm committed to eating healthy (for diabetes, hypertension, weight loss), that my tastes change. The things I used to crave - fried foods, heavy desserts, mounds of cheesy carbs - don't appeal to me as much anymore. ... Read more
Nothing tastes as good...

Here's my 10,000th do-over, but started the morning with a good attitude and a healthy breakfast. I've even had my first 8 ounces of water. Woo-hoo! I'd rather have 10,001 do-overs than to quit trying. Lost 45 lbs between March 2011 and Than... Read more

I subscribe to a free daily motivational quote from Nightingale-Conant. Their logo includes the following phrase, and it's trademarked, "You become what you think about." I couldn’t agree more. http://www.nightingale.com Yesterday's quo... Read more
