Back to Life

Dave and I are back from beautiful Gulf Shores Alabama, and we had a great time. I guess it’s a good thing I decided not to post while on vacation because my site went all wonky. It’s fixed now, but that would have just added to my stress level and frustration. Sometimes computers make me crazy, so a week off from the screen was a good thing. Tomorrow it’s back to the grind, and onwards in our journey to eat a little bit healthier. I got a pretty good picture of this bird and a jellyfish on the...

Vacation Starts Now!

All work and no play makes Jane a dull girl. Dave and I are taking a week off. Dave is past peak delivery season, finally. Things have been hectic at my job, so I am really looking forward to just relaxing for a week. Since I think it may be a good idea to leave all screens behind, I’m not sure how much I will post this week.  Sometimes you just need to unplug. I’m hoping that I will feel fulling recharged and ready to go at the end of the week. Woo hoo...

Cheater Chicken Stir Fry

I was in the grocery store buying some more frozen vegetables when I spotted these stir fry veggies that were on sale. I haven’t made stir fry in a long time, but I thought it might be a nice change of pace.  Plus as I said they were on sale and you know me I’m cheap.  I also thought that since these are steam in bag vegetables it would be a nice time saver.  I slice up one chicken breast, then heated up about one tablespoon of olive oil in a deep fry pan. Once hot I threw in...

No Twigs

I won’t lie, I have been stuck.  After looking into sugar and inflammation issues, I have been extremely frustrated. It’s made it difficult to know where to go next, what to do. I started to feel like I had to start over in figuring out what the heck we should eat. I shared my frustration with Dave, he always has a way of calming me down and talking me off the ledge. I showed him some of the articles I found of foods that cause inflammation.  Top ten lists that included sugar, saturated fat, dairy, refined carbohydrates (flour), vegetable oil, and red meat.  Other lists contained more category type items like fast food, breads, processed foods, pastries, fried foods, and cheese.  Dave’s response was, as usual, laced with a bit of comedy. He said, “Well I guess we’re suppose to eat twigs and berries…no check that, berries contain sugar, so no berries.  Just the twigs.  At least it’ll be cheaper, we can gather twigs in the back yard.”  Then he reminded me that he has actually lost weight and has felt well fed, also he thinks I’ve been on the right track.   Yes he still knows he has to cut back on all of the sugar filled beverages and cookies, but overall we are doing well. As he often does, Dave made me feel much better about things,...
