We are into the new normal at our house. New hot teas and tea blends that taste sweet from the spices that are in them, without actually having any sugar added or incorporated. Coffee black, no sugar is a new norm. Keurig machine and quality K-Cups are what we use, and when you start with high quality ingredients it is easy to take without having to be sweetened up.
Last night’s meal was Ham and Hominy Chowder, which is a real favorite of ours, and leaves us two quarts of leftovers. This is a good thing for the weeks when we are both too busy to cook every night, like this week. It even made a good breakfast this morning instead of eggs or oatmeal.
Discovered the Recipe Box feature of the MyFitnessPal program. I copied a recipe off of the internet and the program matched the ingredients with its database of foods and then I was able to use that food in my food log. It saves the recipe for you so that when you eat it again it is in your list to pick. Very convenient and this will keep me from approximating. For instance, the wife can use it to input her morning smoothie concoctions. She never does it the same way twice, so maybe that’s not that great a thing for her, but it will really work well for me.
I also discovered the Forum of users of this software, where you can introduce yourself, ask questions, answer questions and share in the community of Americans that are up to here with foods, fad diets, and the general money-first attitude of the US food-industrial complex.
We are GOING to have a support group meeting the beginning of May, so check back in or fill out the contact form, which you can get to by clicking the link at the top of the blog. Or you can click this link…LINK.
Hopefully, when I post this to WordPress, it will also post to Twitter and to Facebook. Secondly, I hope it posts to Facebook as a public post, not a ‘me only’ post like it has been doing. One can hope. Look for the share link buttons at the bottom of the post, too. Share this blog with people that you want to start thinking about their diet. If statistics are right, that should be two out of three of your friends.
