Overeating, Cycles, & Binges

Posted by 10 years ago 13 Comments 1461 views

This post is going to try to be too many things but I don’t care. I’ve been getting so many emails and comments asking about slumps and binge eating it deserves a rant. Even if it’s an illogical one. Jennifer commented the other day… …my cycle right now is: gain back a few pounds, get […]

Note to Self… (with a lesson learned)

Posted by 10 years ago 11 Comments 1073 views

If you are starving after work and the husband asks if you want to go out to dinner, NEVER recommend a new bar and grill that opened up at the mall. You KNOW that bar food is a big weakness of yours. Next time, follow the plan and cook the nice lean pork loin you […]

I have so many little things to tell you but I need to start with something I forgot to mention this weekend. Friday night I went grocery shopping to get a head start on my crazy weekend. I just went for some staples and my normal weekly supplies. I especially needed bread. Since I work […]

First Sauce of the Season

Posted by 10 years ago 7 Comments 1305 views

Way back when I mentioned the husband’s love of my homemade spaghetti sauce. I mean he really loves this stuff. Between the months of October and April if it’s the only thing I made it would be the only thing he ate, no complaints. It’s quit hysterical, and flattering, I think. :~) Anyway, now that […]

Spaghetti Squash

Posted by 10 years ago 9 Comments 1527 views

Here’s a produce pick I’ve been using for a about a year now but it warrants its own post. I was VERY hesitant to try the spaghetti squash at first. Probably because I didn’t see a need for it, I mean just eat spaghetti, right? But once I took the leap, boy was I hooked! […]

Pumpkin!

Posted by 10 years ago 4 Comments 1293 views

This produce pick isn’t some exotic find I’ve never tried before. It’s about our good old friend, the pumpkin. If you are anything like me, you’ve been using pumpkin for sometime, in pies, breads, maybe even chili. I have been trying to use it more since reading SuperFoods Rx but it took me until pumpkin […]

Whiny Weather and Allergy Post

Posted by 10 years ago 8 Comments 1203 views

Why in the heck is it 90 degrees in the middle of October. OCTOBER I said! I should NOT be sweating, taking hayrides in shorts and picking pumpkins in 90-degree weather! Yet that is exactly what I did this weekend. Today my allergies are so bad I almost consumed an entire bag of cough drops […]
