Vegan… Almost

I am proud of myself. I have committed to a planted based diet and have been going strong since July 27th. So far so good. It is definitely a lifestyle of planning. Sometimes I really don’t like to do that but I have certainly gotten better.  What we eat is certainly a conscious choice. Obviously,…

Part 3 Health Trilogy – Food

I love flavor! My favorite cuisine is Thai first and Indian second. My palate loves the comfort… so does my belly. My belly also has a tendency to retain that comfort. Which is no bueno. For this final entry (took long enough) of the health trilogy I would like to delve into FOOD! Mainly the…

Prelude to Part 3 of the Health Trilogy

I bet you thought I forgot to post the third installment. No, no, no! My research is taking me far and beyond. I want to pare it down and bring it! But until then check this out. I went to my local grocery lady and “Tunas” were on sale. Let’s see if you can figure…

Thoughts of Fried Chicken Running Through My Head…

The level of stress that are now my reality has thoughts of fried chicken running through my head. GEEEZ! I have been eating relatively healthy over the past couple of weeks.

Silence of the Yams…

My grandmother had high cholesterol and high blood pressure.  I remember when I was in 9th grade she had to take pills for it but she would retain water because of the pills.  The doctor recommended that she eat certain foods and use Mrs. Dash. She did.  Her favorite daily delectable… a sweet potato for…

There is Fruit at my Front Door

I ate two of the worst meals I could have ever eaten. Mainly, because of poor planning. The first… McDonald’s. You don’t even need to know what it was. If it was from there it really doesn’t matter what it was. Even their fruit isn’t good for you. The second was bourbon chicken and fried…
