    Tigers and Turtles - 2016

    I made a Briam yesterday. It is a Mediterranean dish of potatoes, zucchini (or sometimes eggplant), red bell pepper, onion, garlic and olive oil baked in the oven. Thursday I made green beans, tomatoes, onions, potatoes, garlic and olive oil. So good and even better the next day. I had some for breakfast topped with fried eggs. I still go to the YMCA 5 days a week. I love Yoga and a new water yoga class started this week.

    That is great. This isn't much different than I have been eating. I just needed to eliminate grains and dairy.

    I am still here. I'm sorry about your health problems. I have been following the Mediterranean which and doing well. I would love to plug along with you. Let me know when you want to start.

    Smoothie bowl success?

    Still not the same as eating the whole food. I wouldn't use them.
  9. Kale and other dark green leafy vegetables and sweet potatoes have a lot more potassium than bananas.

    Not hidden for me either.

    Mayo Fail :( Discouraged, please help!

    Mayo will fail if it is mixed too long. It only takes 1-2 minutes with an immersion blender. A standard mixer is probably too powerful and the mixer will get too warm and the mayo will fail.

    Good morning, ladies! I've had a rough 2 months. I started with strep throat, then a bad asthma attack and before I was over that I got the Individual and ended up in the hospital for a week followed by 3 weeks in rehab. I came home in time for Thanksgiving. I'm definitely in for the Christmas party and January W30.

    Today was the first time I've received notification of a post in a month! I should have checked sooner. I've been reading "Food Freedom Forever" and it's like Melissa was talking to me personally. If you haven't read it, its worth your time. If some of you are reading it, maybe we could discuss it. I have been doing pretty well. Kelly over at The Nourishing Home (Paleo website - she sends out email with dinner menus every week) started a Whole30 yesterday so I joined. She has a month of menus and recipes for the Whole 30. I plan to read the book then go back and make notes and highlight during this time so I'll be prepared for the "eating season."

    Good morning, ladies! Off and running on the W30 Challenge. In looking in the freezer to see what I needed I found Chocolate Chili and Cauliflower Soup so I'll use those this week along with some Kalua Pork that was lurking there. Like many of you, I just don't have brakes for some foods and it's all downhill after the first bite. Then there is no use not eating everything in sight until next Monday because you can only start a W30 on Monday (LOL). I think this first week is going to be pretty hard for I have really strayed. I had to redo my gym schedule because they changed the time on my Yoga class and added a new Silver Sneakers that will fit my schedule better. I was thinking about going for a walk this afternoon but the walking trail will be a mess since Hermiane came on the weekend. My flower sure loved the rain after 4 weeks of not one drop. Have a wonderful day.
