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.

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

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.

I love ribs! But, I don't like the way cattle, especially pork, is raised or processed. Since I have switched to grass-fed from U.S. Wellness Meats, I enjoy ribs more often! So, the question is ... which do you like better? Pork or beef and why? Comment below.
Honestly, I have avoided pork for so long, that I was craving some pork ribs ... I was not disappointed!
US Wellness Meats on beef ...
US Wellness Meats has been selling grass-fed beef sourced from the best 100% grass-fed and grass-finished cattle for twenty years and counting. While some companies claim to sell grass-fed beef, they actually finish with grain, which defeats the purpose. We exclusively use grass and operate using regenerative agriculture on sustainable farms with thousands of acres of pastures to graze. We also never use GMO-feed, antibiotics, or growth hormones, and we never compromise on quality. We only use natural, thick grass — just like mother nature intended it.
US Wellness Meats on pork ...
The thing is, mass production has been worse to pork than any other meat. Most supermarket pork products are full of additives like nitrates, nitrites, and sugars, and the result is a product that is less tasty and much less healthy. We believe there is a better way.
Today is a new day. Get ready! Get set! GO! Shake it off and refocus. You've got this! Sometimes it's just baby steps that return you to where you want to go. One step at a time! Don't beat yourself up ... smile and pat yourself on the back. Today is a brand new day. What does your first step look like? Mine was a walk around the block and then a shower. I downed my Bulletproof coffee and made plans for lunch (grass-fed, grass-finished pork chops in the Instant Pot/Air Fryer (salt and pepper) with spinach salad packed with vegetables and a Bulletproof vinaigrette. am also committing to drinking 50 ounces of water today!
