Thinking about it all

As I get older I seem to be more aware of things I should be doing. We are really examining our eating habits and trying to make some changes. There is just too much stuff being added to foods that I do not think we should be eating.

A Vitamix has joined my stable of appliances and I try to start each day with a smoothie. Surprisingly, it satisfies me until lunch.

We rarely buy canned goods anymore. If I do, the label has to be thoroughly read. Fresh, fresh, fresh! And I can only hope that fresh has not been messed with too much.

A favorite supper is spaghetti pie (whole wheat pasta) with fresh tomatoes and fresh basil. We now have a basil plant on the lanai.

The fresh fruit has been "Waterlogued". I love this app and found watercolor paper for my printer. I will frame some of my digital "art" and hang in the studio.

So we are trying. We stir fry with fresh ingredients. Tonight will be pork, mushrooms and broccoli rabe and whatever else I can find in the fridge.

There is so much information out there and it is hard to absorb it all but we are trying! Because every once and a while we like to go out and sometimes I just need to have. . .

Have a wonderful week!

I agree with you totally. Especially when you are in Florida, you can always get fresh something at a market. Eating less is also important. As we get older, we can really get along with a lot less than we think.

Fresh fresh fresh ... that's what the farmer's market is for and we are so lucky to live where fresh is available all year long. I'm eating/drinking smoothies, too.
