I missed my Wednesday post, but Friday? Friday is for food! After days of dieting with nopal cactus for weight loss, Friday is one day where I get to eat anything the heart desires. It took a little while for me to remember what we ate this week. It’s come to the point where I’ve […]

It’s another Foodie Friday! This week saw just a little more variety at mealtime. We actually had a plan, and we stuck to it – make a menu, do one large shopping trip, and prep in advance where necessary. It actually seems to have worked.

I am in grave danger of becoming one of those people who Instagrams all her meals. It’s mainly due to the fact that a picture makes it easy to remember what you’ve had and whether it was notable in some way. As a result, I have a few pictures saved back. I’m thinking of making […]

Chili Day

The Husbeast and I are trying to clean up our diet. Which means less sugar, and more of what you’d call “natural whole-foods”. Essentially, we get rid of the “fillers” that have the highest calorie and carbohydrate load. It evens out our blood sugar (thankfully neither of us is diabetic), which means our moods are definitely more stable. Other side benefits include less headaches/migraine, less joint pain, and less muddled thinking.

And the way I look at it, it starts with chili.

Apparently this week’s Ten on Tuesday is “Favourite Ways to Eat Tomatoes“. Considering I’m not a vegetarian (and thus have a certain kind of “veggie-fu”), this may be limited.  Why? 1. Because I don’t drink Tomato juice. So you won’t catch me eating them that way. 2. And I tend to limit my bread, so […]

Just a quick update with a thumbs up for the Grilled Eggs with Mexican Chorizo recipe from Mark’s Daily Apple. We enjoyed the meal and found that I apparently can’t pronounce “chorizo” to save my life. This is OK. I’m comfortable with that. When it comes to sausage meat, I can’t say I’m a huge […]

I know, I know…I’ve been really foody lately and a little less on the knitting.  That’s because I’m working on the socks-in-progress that I’m designing myself, and as proud as I am about them, I kinda want to wait until I’m ready to post the pattern before I show ’em off. Tomorrow I’ll show off […]

Robin grilled up some salmon tonight, and we had it with some caesar salad.  Now, I know that there’s at least one Doubting Thomas who will find this unlikely, so I took a picture.  As they say, pictures or it didn’t happen… See?  That’s my plate.  Green stuff is salad.  Salmon-coloured stuff is….salmon. For those […]
