3-14-17 Coffee and Nature

Like many Americans, I start my day with a cup of coffee. Depending on how sleepy I am, I'll either make my usual cup, or I'll go to the local Starbucks and get something with a little (or a lot) more kick in it.

Visual and Instant Online Food Diary

I've tried food diaries in the past, but it's too easy to sneak a few treats here and there, as well as forget to write it down after you eat it. Plus, you can twist the truth about portions and exact measurements. By taking pictures of everything that I consume throughout the day, there's no… Continue reading Visual and Instant Online Food Diary

I had the opportunity to visit Carlos at his work. What a beautiful place! Pookie's is a Thai place hidden in an office complex that is more of a nature sanctuary than any office complex I've very seen. Here's a beautiful picture of our appetizer: And here are some pics of the office complex:

Nasty Food Marketing Competition

Is it just me or are fast food companies making their already disgusting choices even worse? Taco Bell's new breakfast menu? Subway's nasty Fritos enchilada sandwich thingie, or Dominoes and their chicken dish that looks like puke on a paper towel? I expect cheeseburgers with way too much meat and cheese, but these places are… Continue reading Nasty Food Marketing Competition

March Against Monsanto

I completely forgot my Friday post again but for good reason. We stayed up working on signs for the March Against Monsanto that happened worldwide on Saturday. So many people don't know what corporations are doing to over 90% of the food we buy, and the worst types of GMO foods are being marketed and fed to… Continue reading March Against Monsanto

Foodie Monday: Harvesting Potatoes

So I wasn't able to post a foodie Friday post last Friday, but it was my birthday and I was vacationing with the family. Much needed! Anyway, I'm posting today with my first potato harvest! The picture above was what I pulled out of the orange laundry basket I used to plant potatoes. Didn't take… Continue reading Foodie Monday: Harvesting Potatoes

Growing Wheatgrass

At the Farmer's Market, we tried a shot of wheatgrass from one of the vendors. She kept telling us how great the stuff is for teeth and gums, which of course made us look right at her mouth. Her teeth and gums looked really healthy! Her skin also looked very clear. You could tell she… Continue reading Growing Wheatgrass
