  • Preparing to travel

    I spent Monday getting ready to travel for the next 5 weeks. Getting ready for my travels involves going through the food in my refrigerator to see what can be eaten before I leave, what can be taken with me for eating on the plane, and what needs to be processed to be used later. […]

  • Planned indulgences

    I’m a believer in moderation and balance when it comes to eating. Most of what I put in my body is fairly healthy – and then I enjoy the planned indulgences (PIs) I intersperse between the meals that are supportive of good health. I aim for about 90% healthy, supportive eating. Some people plan their […]

  • Summer fruit

    I’m noticing that I’m eating more fruit – apricots, plums, nectarines, peaches, cherries. There’s hardly room for apples on my daily menu anymore!

  • More Food Collages

    I’ve been posting my daily food collages on FaceBook, and have received quite a bit of positive response, but have hesitated to put them here. My fear is that I could easily turn this blog into a food-oriented adventure, and much as I enjoy food adventures, it’s just one small part of what I think […]

  • Food for the day

    I’ve been documenting my daily food consumption, as an awareness and accountability exercise. Thought I would post them here occasionally, and perhaps that will inspire some blog writing. I generally eat lots of protein and produce, with some whole grains in some of my meals, but today was a high grain day – and a […]
