what kind of dog is he caihong? and what are some of the documentaries you watched? i would like to watch them.
i made a veggie bean soup in the slow-cooker today. it was yummy. had spelt bread with it. and a mango for dessert.
i've cut out my afternoon coffee, we'll see how that goes. :-s
oh yeah ldt i pretty much wing it with the smoothies, kind of an ongoing trial by error. but i've pretty much figured out how to make them just how i like it. and i just use water now instead of juice or milk to cut down the calories and i find it is just as good. dates are a good sweetener, i use the soft fresh kind from the produce section, organic is best.

Water? Really? Hmmm... I'll try that, InPar....even though my smoothies are healthy, no doubt they are calorie laden.

seriously! I used to think it sounded gross, too. but it's good! Just put lots of frozen banana and I use vanilla protein powder which doesn't hurt. (vega brand is awesome.)

I think my basic approach to nutrition has helped me reach 71 and maybe helped counteract all those groggy years.

I push ova/lacto vegetarianism a lot, along with lots of roughage, fruit veg,
lots of beans, yoghurt, and dairy. I try to limit sugar,saturated fat and junk foods, while allowing for the occasional treat.

Good Morning Gang!

InPar, tell me why you use vanilla protein powder( aside from the obvious )..... Does it make your smoothie taste more vanilla-ey? ( new word). I will go by our health food store today. ( Even though I really have a LARGE problem with one of their employees because of her...um....attitude....but I'll bite the bullet and go. Why in the world do they allow people to work in a health food store that obviously have no interest in nutrition and who seem to hate everyone that walks through the door?)

Our grilled romaine salad was even better last night than the first night we tried it. I woke up craving it . Have no clue what today's menu will be other than a fruit smoothie....with water...and vanilla protein powder.....bought from the grumpy lady at the health food store

Hi ya'll!
Cai, that is so cool that you can take your dog to AA meetings! That was 1 of the reasons (excuses) I quit AA after a month cause I didn't like leaving my dog home alone in the evenings after she'd been alone all day. Thankfully I didn't really need AA.

Last night was shrimp/brussel sprout/zucchini/olives stir fry again it was yummy, I think of LDT each time I make it. Tonight I'm having a spinach-feta salmon burger on a bed of spinach, which I will have to share a little with the Peach...that's the only people food she ever 'begs' for so I give her a couple bites and the salmon is likely good for her coat.

I've got to look up that grilled romaine salad I just can't imagine grilling lettuce? It sounds interesting though.

Happy healthy eating all.

Judy...you will LOVE the grilled salad. There are a million recipes out there. One suggestion....drizzle a tiny bit of olive oil on your romaine heart before grilling. it gives it a nice smokey flavor

The only people food my dog gets is bits of roasted chicken ( which he loves ), and, believe it or not, dried banana chips. He would eat a bag if we let him ( which we don't ).

Good Morning Heaters,
Jamdsl he is a Pomeranian,fussy little eater. Yes I know how you feel I dont like leaving him at home and take him with me to the cafe, I put him on an extremely long lead as if he wanders off he could get taken or run over and we had another walk in the afternoon.
I had and still have to a lesser degree and withdrawal headache from coffee. No biggie.
Inparticular, I will write down a list of the one I have watched and post them tomorrow.
I watched on yesterday, a raw foodist who had been over 300lbs, only a young woman, she talked about the emotional aspect of food and has written a book about it.

Would love to get my hands on some nice plump organic mejool dates. They are very expensive here. I use bananas to sweeten my green smoothies.

Made crusts for quiches and tarts yesterday. I took my time and they came out really well and held together Made from nuts,flax seeds and one with carrots.
I havent commented on the grilled lettuce for obvious reasons. I do enjoy reading about what you are up to in the kitchen LDT.

Grumpy shop assistants are a joke in this day of high unemployment why keep them on. I can still remember decades ago working in a bar and being in a foul mood and taking it out on the customers and am really ashamed of that still. I was so wrong.

HAVE AN INSPIRED DAY EVERYONE

love
caihong

I fostered a Pomeranian for about 6 months not long after I got sober in 2007, he was sweet, Peaches was not too crazy about him though as seen in this picture (Peach is on the left). The Pom really did NOT like the fact that I have all wood floors and no carpeting so I had to put throw rugs all over the house so he could go from 1 rug to the next...then my dad who was 85 at the time came to live with me after my mom died and I couldn't have all those throw rugs around with him walking with a cane so I had to give up the Pom he was fun though.

Jamdls,
Great photo. I need to learn how to upload photos from my iPad.

Yesterday we made coconut milk which wil eventually be processed further to make cocnut oil. We tasted the milk and it was the most delicious drink I have ever tasted. Nothing like the stuff you get in cans. As the hard brown coconuts were being broken open some of them had these round white ball in the end, the manger told me that as a child he loved this part of the coconut the best, this is the seed growing inside the coconut. It tasted fantastic with a light texture like an Aero chocolate bar.
Yesterday I had a large vegetable juice
Vegetable and flax seed crackers with pesto dip made with sunflower and pumpkin seeds.
Dragonfruit, watermelon, and mango.
Today I feel much better I think the caffeine withdrawals are subsiding.
I felt quite tired yesterday, very low energy. I need to go with that and just rest when I can and feel like it.
A customer what's to do the 7 day detox diet and start today which is great as I will have a detoxing buddy for a week.
Have a good weekend everyone.

Love
CaiHong

Great pic, Judy! I am going to learn how to post pics as well. (Need to do that before summer.) My son's roommate has 2 Pomeranians. I think they were both rescue poms. my son has a cat named Monty. So between them, they have these 3 pets in this tiny apartment. It gets wild in there sometime.

CaiHong, Even though I'm not a huge fan of coconut, I would love to try that milk. Sounds interesting. How do you make the milk into coconut oil?

Today I took my daughter out to lunch....I had pan sautéed fish in a lemon/butter/saffron sauce, topped with lump crab meat....I can't begin to tell you how good it was.

Yesterday my DH bought us a NutriBullet. Our Ninja just wasnt satisfactory when we were making almond flour....plus our food processor was even worse.....so now we have a NutriBullet......Anyone have any experience with this gadget?

If you could see my fridge right now, you would all make a beeline for my house....and you're invited.

We are having a family birthday party for my daughter. Here's the menu.

Tonight: grilled shrimp and grilled romaine salad ( let's see...that makes 3 times this week, but who's counting?) raw ice cream.

Tomorrow: grilled 'duck poppers' (I told you about these....pieces of duck breast stuffed with cream cheese, thin slices of onions and jalapeños )....smoked leg of lamb.....salad ( not grilled), watermelon, and sweet potato "fries"..... PLUS, an assortment of these delicious little gourmet mini cupcakes......and this is all just appetizers !! ( I'm kidding ).

So, as we fire up the grill and crank up the Rolling Stones and Subdudes, ...I'll just say ...have a great weekend, Heaters!

Hi, healthy eaters!

I've been busy with a new project, thought kept on track with healthy nutrition. I have some sweets once in awhile but keep it under control. I've almost lost all the extra weight - since I gained back muscles it's somewhat difficult to say how much fat I lost. But I got my six-pack abs back! And, by the way, today is half a year for my sobriety date)

My favourite oats for breakfast, lean beef with rice and veggies for lunch, cottage cheese with plain yougurt and honey for dinner, with some tangerines and walnuts in between.

Have a great day)

LDT! That meal sound freakin awesome! I would skip the cup cakes and go to town on all that other food! AMAZING!

Welcome Ivory!

Well, I ate really well for weeks for the most part. Decided yesterday to take a break. Had some...PIZZA! It was sooooo good, but I don't eat pizza. Have had it twice in last year, and that was 7 months ago.

Folks...I don't moderate well. So, if I let pizza in once, worried it will become regular again. One of the biggest changes I made to lose the recent weight I lost was to have a zero tolerance (or close) for pizza. So, I just gotta make sure it was a one time deal for a significant time. I also ate a few other things that are causing my stomach and intestines issues...I'll leave it at that.

My new favorite meal is salmon over cauliflower fried rice. I mix in a bunch of other veggies/eggs and it it sooooo good, and filling.

Dats wut I got!

MidnightBlue,

Congrats on 6 months !!

.....and getting your 6 pack abs back.

LDT,
I just happen to have gotten a nutra bullet, as a gift. Still in the box.
Keep us posted.
I'm probably just resisting it, because of my bias against anything sold on late night
infomercials; .....and kitchen invading gadgetry.

Hopefully, it'll work out better than the Steam floor cleaner Wallyworld was selling.
....my first (and last) late night infomercial product.

Still trying to get back to sans sugar. Almost there.

Hi Heaters...just a quickie here , as I've gotta start cooking. . ( imagine that )

Ghostly... I don't eat cupcakes on a regular basis. Actually I don't eat any "real" sugar much at all any more. But these darn little cakes...OMG ( and I don't even say OMG ).... Your salmon meal sounds incredible. I will try it.

Midnight.... You sound great. Six pack abs? okay....speak to me!

Yes, welcome Ivory!

Topspin.... I can tell you right now that our NutriBullet is MUCH better in the almond flour making department than our Ninja was/is. The flour is a lot finer. Since this gadget is new, We haven't been able to use it much , so nothing else to report. Speaking of 'gadgets', my DH is the gadget master....if it's worth a look, then it's worth buying, right? I have to say he does do his homework before buying, though.

As I type, DH is making an injectable marinade for our smoked leg of lamb out of Teriaki, Mustard, and Cajun Power Sauce........ Later we are making our own marinade for the duck poppers ( with the NutriBullet ) out of mangoes, jalapeños and agave nectar ( yeah, I know that's not Paleo, Ghost).

This was suppose to be a short post.....gotta run ...hope everyone has a healthy day!
