This space is dedicated to a journey I started recently to activate my stagnating brain, tone my sagging muscles (that darned pandemic!), and make sure all my innards are working with peak efficiency.
I will be adding a new food or drink adventure every day or so for the next few weeks. I hope you will take what you can use, skip what you can’t, and remember that I’m not a doctor of any kind. You are on your own! Please do your own research and, please, ask your doctor and/or pharmacist about changes to your diet.
Hungry? Let’s dive in!
My interest in eating healthy started when I was a teenager, but I do love me my sweets, so . . .
that led to hypoglycemia. I cut down on sugars and tried to incorporate more veggies into my diet. My husband did all the cooking then, so . . .
that led to lots of pastas, pizzas, and pretty much whatever meat he was into that week. Now, I can take red meat or leave it. Gimme a nice chicken, fish, or pulled pork, and I’ll keep a steady supply of protein in my diet. But when I was on my own, and had to learn to cook (gulp!) I went back to old habits.
Within my multitude of emails, one caught my eye. It was about changing to a plant-based diet easily, and with minimal cooking. Sounds right to me! So I downloaded the suggested grocery list and got started — slowly — on my journey.
