Eating to Live
My journey with food has been just that ... a journey. Until recently, I struggled with binge eating though not to any extremes short of annoying myself, but as I approached my seventies I realized my belly was telling me something. I was diagnosed with IBS years ago but when I removed some stresses from my life it went away. Stress is not my friend. Learning to manage it - or in some cases removing it - has made the biggest difference.
My website/blog is all about me and my journey - it's not always consistent
as I do what I do when I want to do it, but you should find something
to help you in your journey.
There are hundreds of websites and blogs out there to help you
find your path to good health and fitness.
Yes, I'm serious. You stretch your body, why not your food? Well, not literally, of course, but think about it. Here you are trying to "fix" your health but everything you read or are told are so drastic, right? Eat this, don't eat that, don't eat out, never eat pasta again, all carbs are bad ... well, all that can take it's toll.
Recently I read an article by Nourishing Gurus that really gave me some great ideas. Here are a couple of links ... prepared to be amazed, but keep in mind, some ideas and recipes may not fit into your style of eating) ...
Vegan / Gluten-Free / Dairy-Free / Lectin-Free / Soy-Free / Nut-Free / Alkaline / Paleo-Friendly
I'm not sure where I found this recipe; if you're the owner, please contact me.
Road trips are always a challenge for me, but while I am recording my blood glucose, it's even more of a challenge!
We traveled to Decatur for something we have been waiting for the last two weeks. The day finally arrived and my challenge began. Subway salad with oil and vinegar dressing was an option. I added tuna salad, onions, black olives and skipped my beloved cucumber since I need to peel and seed them. Also, tomatoes are out. But, all in all it was pretty decent.
Dinner was even easier. Sushi! While there is rice, it doesn't bother me and even the pickled ginger was a treat! There! Done.
Oh, why did we go to Decatur, you ask? We picked up our "new" 2018 Tesla Model S. The white is now for sale.
It may not be your shoes but the way you are tying them. As an avid Pickleball player and former tennis player, my feet always hurt after a game. My research showed me there are several ways to tie my shoe that may help alleviate my Metatarsalgia pain.
Metatarsalgia (met-uh-tahr-SAL-juh) is a condition in which the ball of your foot becomes painful and inflamed. You might develop it if you participate in activities that involve running and jumping. There are other causes as well, including foot deformities and shoes that are too tight or too loose
While there were several websites with helpful information, I found Dick's Sporting Goods gave me the best option for me. By clicking the link you will be taken to Dick's website and when you scroll down a little you will see a graphic demonstrating each method. Good luck!

How to cook Miracle Noodles Dr. Gundry’s way:
You can eat cleaner, simpler, and more nutrient-dense, but if you're still sitting most of your day there is more you can do! I love projects and this morning I will be tackling my corner of the garage. The picture above it not my garage. With a washer and dryer, a side-by-side and a top-freezer refrigerator, toolboxes, coolers, a slop sink, two cars and a workbench. That's my spot - a corner workbench - and it is overloaded with stuff I wanted to put on Facebook Marketplace, but the whole concept has rendered me overwhelmed. There is a shelf below, too, filled with more stuff. Last night I got into bed knowing the garage would be the first thing I'd do after coffee. And, that's where I'm headed.
Why am I telling you this? Because not all exercise involves a walk, run, or the gym. Sometimes it just means "get off your butt"!
Oh, lunch today will be roasted lamb with a side of asparagus.
Do you have an abundance of rosemary? Or did someone gift you some? Either way, rosemary is a lusciously wonderful herb to add to your meals! Rosemary is a rich source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, which are thought to help boost the immune system and improve blood circulation. Rosemary is considered a cognitive stimulant and can help improve memory performance and quality. It is also known to boost alertness, intelligence, and focus. But what can you do with it?
Does rosemary help you sleep? Rosemary may seem like an interesting herb to include in a sleep pillow, but it actually is a lovely addition. Unlike other herbs, rosemary actually helps you have vivid dreams. For many people, sleep ideally is a time to cope with our daily lives.
