Two AARGH moments today related to crazy things in our culture at large.
(1) My employer wants us to help make our state a Blue Zone state, which supposedly means we rank as healthier. We're supposed to agree to "pledges" available online. Some of the actions are using smaller than 10-inch dinner plates (but then where will I fit my veggies), keeping a scale in a prominent place, putting snacks like pretzels into smaller portion-sized bags (yeah, I'd better do that with my pretzels), and dedicating the top shelf of my refrigerator to fruits and veggies (how about all of the shelves).
(2) a recipe contest through a local grocery store requires the recipe to use local ingredients, to "make half your grains whole grains," and "select lean proteins" a la the ChooseMyPlate.gov guidelines. Guess I won't be entering that one.
I'm out of step with so much of what's considered healthy, yet oddly I'm healthier than I've ever been.
My Husband: "I love you no matter how crazy you are"
Me: "And I love you no matter how big you get!"
Even though he is not willing to try the Whole 30, he ate my shepherd's pie with cauliflower on top last night and loved it :-)
