Back At It

I've been feeling a bit guilty lately. Instead of mixing gym visits with walking, I've just been doing the walking. I rationalized this decision because walking is my favorite form of exercise, and I love being outside, enjoying the summer. But then my bank statement comes, and I'm reminded every month that I'm paying for something that I'm not using.Being on vacation these past couple of days...

Do you ever feel like this donkey? You're plugging away, doing the best you can to keep your balance, and then...It seems like life is just one big balancing act. Whether it's trying to balance work and family, good eating and unhealthy eating, exercising too much and not exercising at all, watching your spending and putting everything on a credit card. Whatever the situation may be for you, I...

Yesterday, I was out visiting some blogs dealing with diabetes, and there was some excitement about a new venture, D-Feast Friday's. Bloggers post their favorite recipes that are greattasting and diabetic friendly. Since it seems like the Zucchini-Corn Quesadillas I've been making lately have become quite a hit, I thought it would be a great recipe to contribute. It's also a tasty way to...

Hot and humid. That's the kind of weather we've been getting here in Maryland for the last few weeks. I don't know about you, but I have a hard time eating when it gets like this.But I have a hard time getting enough of one of my favorite summertime treats, Gazpacho.This soup, served cold, is really easy to prepare and very refreshing. Sadly, my homegrown tomatoes are not quite ready yet, so I...

Maryland this week. Every single county in our state has at least one, and I'm pretty sure it would be about the same where you live.These opportunities to get good, local produce at a decent price shouldn't be missed. In our big grocery store age, it's nice to be able to speak to the person who is growing the food we eat.If you have the chance to check one out in the next couple of weeks,...

I had three college students over to my house tonight to try out some vegetarian food. One suggested I make Mexican food, so that's what was on the menu. The Zucchini-Corn Quesadillas shown above were, I think, the hands down favorite. They were really, really good. I'll post the recipe under appetizers by Saturday. Maybe you'll try them out on the 4th?I've been blessed to know these guys for...

Food Habits

When I began changing my eating habits, I was encouraged by the line in Matthew's Gospel where Jesus asked, "isn't life more than food..?" (5:25). So much of our lives today revolve around eating and drinking. In and of itself, that's not necessarily a bad thing, but it seems to me that many of us have taken it to the extreme.On the NBC evening news last night (6/21/10), I happened to catch a...

summer burger recipes on their website. I can't decide which one to try out first, but the Black and Blue burger seems to be calling my name. I don't eat much cheese any more, but I think I'll use some blue cheese dressing, then bring the bottle in for my coworkers to use on their salads.Morningstar even has a pdf document covering the basics of grilling veggie burgers. They think of everything...

I wanted to tell you about a new dinner I've been making over the last few weeks, compliments of Trader Joe's. They are always bringing out new products, and I recently picked up a couple of bags of their Country Potatoes with Haricots Verts (green beans) and Wild Mushrooms. Everything is pre-cooked and seasoned with olive oil and garlic. Heating them through in a saute pan takes just a few...
